Until There Was You – Alessa Martel

Opposites definitely attract.

Only a few months ago, Emily was engaged to a sweet, handsome man she planned to spend the rest of her life with. When his ex-girlfriend returned from college and the misunderstandings that led to their breakup came to light, Emily soon found herself single again.

On her own in the small town in which she spent several happy childhood years, she knows that she’s the subject of gossip and pity, whether she wants to be or not. Settling down into a life with her grandparents, for whom she is a caretaker, she doesn’t expect to find a man who makes her heart race as it never has before.

Jonah has never had a serious girlfriend and doesn’t want one. No woman is worth that kind of trouble, he rationalizes, but when he returns home from a year volunteering in the rural South, he stumbles into Emily, and the sparks begin to fly.
