Sins of the Past by Shauna Hart

When Jackson Hart came back to town to bury his mother, the last person he wanted to see was Mallory Westfall. Fifteen years ago, she walked away from him when he needed her most. Now, he’s back, but he isn’t the naïve boy she remembers. He’s a successful author well on his way to making a name for himself.

Mallory Westfall has paid for her sins. Years ago, she turned her back on the only man she ever loved to save him from her father’s wrath. After her recent divorce, all she wants to do is stay out of the local gossip. But when Jackson Hart returns, she is faced with the pain she inflicted and the all consuming heat he inspires. But Mallory has a secret, a secret she has been protecting for the last fifteen years. And getting too close to Jackson again is not an option.

As each of them try to fight their feelings for each other, long buried truths are brought to light. But with so much between them, will they ever be able to try again? Or will the echoes of their past finally consume them?

Reviewer: Fashionta
This book was like a Harlequin but with more sex. It’s a storyline that I have seen so many times in Harlequin's over the years, that it was an okay book not amazing, considering the plot. It's one that has been used so many times that I think it been over used to the point that I say it's time to retire it unless you come up with a new angle that is amazing.

So in this one Megan and Jackson had relationship while in their senior year of high school. She was the rich girl and he the town bad boy. They had a fight as the story goes, then they break up. He goes one way, she goes another. Already can you see the pattern and then they are reunited 15 years later. It drove me crazy, the characters were great and everything but I can’t get over the fact that plot is not something new.

I have to give this book three and half stars for the reasons above. It was solid writing but the plot is one that I'm so over with because of the over use of the idea.
