The town of Major is nothing more than a major disappointment for Zoe Parker. She is living in a grey world after the death of her beloved Mama, and can’t seem to shake the growing depression that threatens to consume her. Things only get worse when she discovers her longtime boyfriend is banging every chick in town.
Her daddy is gone most nights, and all she can think about is the boy who really caught her eye in high school more than five years ago… The one with gorgeous dark skin and smoldering eyes… Too bad he was dating her best friend. Now she floats around, moving through the daily routine with small dreams about getting away from the small town, and finding a real man to claim her heart…
Staff Sergeant Calvin Hall of the US Army is finally putting his boots back on American soil for some R&R. It’s been five years since he joined the military, and he hasn’t looked back since. After dealing with his own troubling past, he wants to lay back and enjoy some time to put it all behind him. But fate has other plans for him… A beautiful woman snags his attention the first day in town and the pull between them is too strong to resist. The problem? She is his ex-girlfriend’s best friend, she is just as broken as he is, and he has a war he has to get back to in two weeks.
Who says a summer romance ever has to end? What if thousands of miles and a war separated you? Would you keep dancing? Or would it simply be… a September Tango?
True love. It’s something that not all of us find, but whether you’ve found it or not, you will believe in it when reading this book. Calvin and Zoe are the epitome of true love. Even though they haven’t seen each other in years, and were never really friends, their hearts come together for an amazingly strong connection; it’s almost unreal how close they become in such a short time. While I read this book, I cried, laughed, and sighed repeatedly. It’s a book that is worthy of a Hallmark or Lifetime Original Movie… It’s an amazing love story that takes the reader on a journey along with the characters. It’s well-written (with the male perspective written by an actual male) and is so fluid that you get lost in the words. There are just some books that suck you in and give you a dreamy feeling by the time you reach the end, and this book has that quality. When I finished, I had to sit in silence and revel in the beauty of the story. Amazing.
