h was a 19 year old snob raised by wealthy grandparents after her mom died in childbirth and dad kind of disappeared. She met the hero before leaving for college, he owned a boat and helped his foster brother and siblings. They have their first time & then she is forced to break their date, the next day in front of her pretentious friends she acts like a snob and they exchange angry words.
Flash forward eight years later, her grandfather's business is struggling and she is a changed person. She matured after she found herself pregnant after her first time and lost the baby, she felt she deserved that and changed and became a better person. The hero lost his job because of her, she didn't know that and comes to take revenge buying her company. She doesn't apologize to him for his previous behaviour though she is apologetic, he still thinks she is a snob.
The heroine falls pregnant again, they marry, maintain distance & HEA. Hero comes to know her & that she wasn't a snob, she also has a pregnancy scare, when she tells him about their first baby.
Despite the h having been engaged, weirdly he was her only lover. I just found so much of the drama unnecessary in the book, they could have just talked instead of keeping things in. In the middle of the book nothing seems to happen, she is all yearning for him & he is too kinda.
