He’s twenty-four. She’s eighteen.
His life is exactly the way he’s always wanted it to be...stable.
She’s quite possibly the very definition of unstable.
Noah saved her.
Georgina never wanted to be saved.
Growing up, Noah Clark was passed from one relative to the next until he finally ended up living with his abusive, alcoholic uncle in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Thanks in part to the unwavering love and support of his best friend, Ellie Turner, Noah survived those years, escaped his uncle, and grew into the man he is today. Now he runs his own business and lives a pretty normal, no-nonsense life—one where he maintains a high level of control.
Georgina is Ellie’s younger sister. Four months ago, Noah saved Georgie’s life, but he thought that was where his involvement with his friend’s sister would end. Now Georgie has returned home from the recovery facility her parents sent her away to and Noah, still haunted by the night that connects them, can’t stop himself from continuously trying to protect this girl he barely knows. But is he willing to give up all of the control he’s worked so hard to build in his life and risk everything for her? Even more importantly, would she do the same for him?
Kill Devil Hills is the second novel by Sarah Darlington and the first in the Kill Devil series. Noah and Georgie’s story is so moving, making it hard to put down. This story had just enough drama to make you feel for the characters but not so much that you feel slight bouts of anxiety.
Growing up in the same house, Noah and Georgie never really noticed each other. With six years between them, it wasn’t hard to understand why their worlds never really connected. But a fateful night when Noah saves Georgie’s life changes all of that. It is the catalyst that helps them realize they need to be in each other’s lives. Seeing each other after Georgie returns home confirms their feelings. Out of respect for his best friend, Georgie’s older sister, he tries to stay away from her but quickly realizes he can’t. Just like Noah is the beacon in her storm to find herself again, Georgie becomes the balm that soothes Noah’s need to control all situations and their outcomes. Through each other they learn to live again.
Kill Devil Hills is a sweet, moving story that kept me wanting more. I am very much looking forward to reading the next installment.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
