This was a tale told in two parts, a second chance love story which began one summer at college when two people from very different backgrounds came together for a summer of fun. What they weren’t expecting was to fall in love so quickly. Miscommunication and circumstance lead to an epic break up that keeps them apart for 12 long years.
Adam is a possessive and alpha type man who is confident in his beliefs, but once he learns that he was deceived by his own father, he has to work hard to try and win back the woman he so harshly turned away.
Nikole has moved on and made a good life for herself, with a father and a brother she never knew she had and a job she only ever dreamed of, but she never forgot the man who stole her heart and cruelly broke it all those years ago.
Adam wants her back, but she is reluctant to trust him again.
This was an angsty story, often frustrating at times due to the lack of communication between their younger selves, but once I moved onto the second part of the book I found that they had matured enough to be able to actually sort through their problems like adults.
I really loved Kole’s brother Jet, and would be very interested to see a book about him.
This was a great debut from author Riann C. Miller, and I am very much looking forward to what she has in store for us in future works.
This is a standalone, told in dual POV.
