Buck's Landing was short summer romance where two individuals cross paths and begin a scorching love affair.
Sofia is a very strong willed and independent woman. She left her only home behind and created a new life away from her hurtful past. She was forced to return and face the ghosts of her past. In dealing with those, she found love where she never thought she would, the one place where love left her a long time ago. She is definitely one feisty character. Silas is the perfect match for her as he is her cooling water, just like the ocean.
Silas was the perfect man. He definitely was created to be the man in every woman's dream. He's had a great yet exhausting career. He makes a risky move that pays off for him in the end. Silas knows exactly what he wants and he goes after it.
I enjoyed the story though by the end of it, I was wishing it was longer. I wanted to know more about the budding romance between Sofia and Silas. I wanted to know more about her parents. This is a story that you can read in one sitting and enjoy the love that endured between two individuals who were seeking different things in life. All in all, it was a good story. I could certainly see Cameron writing beautiful love stories about the coastal life.
Do I recommend this book? I do, if you are looking for something quick to read that will leave you smiling in end and in love.
