Contemp Review: Barefoot in the Sun (Barefoot Bay) [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Barefoot in the Sun the 3rd book in her Barefoot Bay series by Roxanne St. Claire.

Product Description

A Barefoot Bay Novel

When running is all you've ever known

Caught between fight and flight, Zoe Tamarin has always picked flight. Since she was rescued from a nightmare childhood by her great-aunt Pasha, they've been on the move, never staying in one place long enough to risk exposing their precarious past. But now that they've reached the sun-baked shores of Barefoot Bay, Zoe may have to stay and fight - for her aunt's life and for a love she ran from years before.

Sometimes the bravest act of all is to stand still.

Oliver Bradbury came to Florida to start over, as both a doctor and a father to his eight-year-old son. He never expected life to hand him a second chance with the woman he lost years ago - but one look at Zoe Tamarin and he knows he'll do whatever it takes to prove that this time, he can be the man she needs. But when demands of family and friendship threaten to shatter their rekindled passion, Oliver must heal Zoe's lifelong wounds with more than hot kisses but will that be enough to keep her from flying off with his heart?

My Review:

Zoe Tamarin has been on the run with her Aunt Pasha (who isn't really her aunt) since childhood and they have temporarily settled down in Barefoot Bay with her three best friends.  She never expected to run into her ex and the love of her life Oliver Bradbury.  When she finds out her aunt has cancer the only person she can turn to is Oliver who she run away from 9 years ago.

Oliver Bradbury is an oncologist and recently gotten a divorce.  He has moved to Barefoot Bay to start a new life with his 8 year old son Evan.  Oliver has never gotten over Zoe and all he wants to do is thaw the frost around her heart and make her stay this time.
