From USA Today Bestselling Author Ella Frank comes a small town, second chance romance.
Small towns are definitely not for me. Probably because I was born in one, raised in one, and eventually run out of one. The understanding was that I would one day return to Chamberlin California. After all, it is my namesake. What my father didn’t count on however, was that once he sent me away, I would never come back—at least not until he was gone.
Which brings me to now, his wake, at the family winery that was supposed to be mine. It also brings me to her. The sweet girl I left behind. The girl who has since grown into the most beautiful woman I’ve ever laid eyes on—Laurel Anderson.
She’s looking at me as though she wishes I was the one she watched get buried this morning. But she’s out of luck. I’m alive and kicking. I’m also stuck in this town with nothing to do but wait until the will is read.
Well, nothing to do but see if I can seduce the pure and passionate Laurel, and change that anger I see in her eyes to something just as fiery…desire.
The last time I saw Noah Chamberlin, I was a doe-eyed innocent and he was the boy of my dreams. My future was all planned out down to the wedding dress, until one morning I woke up and he was gone.
You’d think after all these years, I’d feel the same blind indignation and rage that has haunted me since that day. Instead, the second I set eyes on him again, I felt something altogether unwanted and unexpected—lust.
If the rumors are true, he’s only going to be in Chamberlin for a few days. I can handle that, as long as he stops looking at me as though he’s thinking about the last time we were together.
But when Noah’s forced to stay and run the family business, it puts us in dangerously close proximity. And in a town this small, that can only mean one thing—trouble.
**** My Review ****
If you are looking for an interesting love story that will make you believe in the magic of first love, then you must read this book. This story that will make you angry and happy at the same time, laughing out in frustration… This is a story about a love that started in the past but was interrupted ….. A story about the hope and desire for happily ever after.
He left his home and left everything behind, his family, his siblings, and the empire of his family. He left because of the man who acted like his executioner, not someone who was supposed to protect him. Because of his father. He left his friends and his dreams. He left her, Laurel – the doe-eyed girl who woke up to a whole explosion of emotions in his young heart. He left and did not expect to return. But here they are again … standing few feet apart, after so many years ….. It seems that time has not passed for the two of them, they are attracted just like many years ago ….. everything is the same and yet so different. .. What will happen now? Will this love get a second chance?
This is the first time I have read something by this author, and it will certainly not be the last. The whole story is quite easy to read with interesting content and quite likable characters. Secrets, betrayals, unfulfilled desires, and pain are all intertwined and presented in sufficient quantities to keep the reader’s attention. Some parts like the biggest reveal seemed a bit predictable and a bit far-fetched, although if you take the whole picture, it seems to fit perfectly, with all the parts in place. The main characters Noah and Laurel are completely likable and the chemistry between them is absolutely beyond any measure… It fits the title very well.
If you are a fan of second chance romances, then this is one great choice. A love tale about a young couple that was perfect together, meant for each other. Having been apart for years, yet still, have a great connection and undeniable chemistry. With sweet and sexy moments, enough drama, and angst, this story will leave you with a smile on the face and warmth in your heart.
