It was all he had to do. Instead, he got on that bus and took my heart with him.
That was seventeen years ago.
I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again.
Alone, penniless, and with two boys, I had no choice but to return to Tennessee. He wasn’t supposed to be there. I should’ve been safe. However, fate has a way of stepping in.
This time around, the tables are turned. It’s my decision. Second chances do exist, but I don’t know if we can repair what’s already been broken . . .
** This book is a STANDALONE **
I think this is one of the most beautiful second chance romances I have read in a while. It’s devastating, but then beautiful, and sweet. I especially love that it’s set in a small country town in Tennessee. Everyone knows everyone, but also knows their business, which sometimes isn’t always a good thing, especially for Presley.
Zach and Presley had it all as teenagers. Young love and a future was all a part of their plan. Until Zach made a decision that changed their entire lives forever. Picking up the pieces, Presley made the decision to move on and try to be happy.
Presley is now married, has twin boys Logan and Cayden, and seemingly has the perfect life, or so she thought. When devastation uproots her from the only life she has known, she has no choice but to take her boys and move back to her parents’ farm in Tennessee. Home is one place she has been hiding from for years. Returning home, she never expected to come face to face with her first love again.
Presley and her sons are trying to adjust to life on a farm and running into old friends isn’t always easy, especially when the whole town knows her and Zach’s history. It turns out that Wyatt, Zach’s brother, is one of her closest friends and I loved this part of the book. Wyatt is quite a character. He’s sexy, funny, and quite the charmer. But, not enough to charm Presley, because her heart has always belonged to Zach, even after all this time.
Running into Zach is harder than she thought it would be, especially when she finds out he has moved on and not to one of the nicest girls in town that’s for sure. What a bitch she was! I couldn’t believe that this hateful witch was paired up with this hot and sexy cowboy who has a heart of gold.
“I loved after I lost you, too. But it was never close to what I felt for you.” - Zach
The more Presley and Zach are thrown together, which Wyatt and her brother Cooper had a part in, the more those old feelings resurface and they find their love never died. One thing I enjoyed about this book is that they really wanted to talk things out, wanted to deal with their emotions, and get it out in the open. But, Presley has been hiding one secret from Zach and that could ruin their newfound relationship. What a doozy it was and poor Zach was just broken. This is one part that I really loved, because you get all of the emotions he was feeling and you’re just hoping for things to get better for him and them, too.
Zach ends up being an important part of Presley and the boys’ lives. He’s so good to them and I adored him for that. Not many men would try to take on a woman with two kids, but he did it beautifully. This cowboy is a sweetheart and some of the things he done was amazing. Like I said, he has a heart of gold. So many times, I was smiling during this book because his actions just blew me away. Every time he spoke to Presley, I was just swooning.
“You’re the most beautiful thing in the world. Because you’re made for me. Just like I was made for you.” - Zach
By the end of this book, I couldn’t have been happier and I love how well things worked out for them. Just a perfect ending that you won’t soon forget. Their love is the forever kind of love that I enjoy when I read a book. You get life’s ups and downs in this book and that’s what makes it all so real. I fell in love with all of the characters and this small town romance is so beautiful and emotional. If you’re looking for sweet, sexy, and all of the feelings in between, then pick up this 5 star book. Now, I want Wyatt’s story!
