My life would have been so much better if Zoey had never walked back into it. She was the first girl I ever loved, and the one I should have spent my life with. Instead, she took her empty promises and vows of love and married someone else.
But it’s been years, and she’s back. Without the husband. She’s single once again, and has two kids and even more of those curves that always made me crazy. I just have to stay away from her for two months. She stayed away for years. I can handle a few months.
I thought walking away from my marriage was going to be tough, but it was nothing compared to walking back into my past. To seeing the man I fell in love with before I knew what love meant. Before I knew who I was or what I wanted from life.
The last time Sebastian and I lived in the same town, I vowed to return to him. I thought he would move on when I didn’t, but he never got married. He never found anyone else. He was still single, but my life was too complicated to get involved with him. Or anyone.
But life doesn’t always listen. Sometimes things happen that force us to discover just how much we can handle. And to find who will be there when we’re at our worst.
I never thought it would be Sebastian coming to my rescue. I should have known better. That’s the kind of man he is. Too bad he’s not interested in sticking around. Karma’s a b@tch.
Everything I Wanted
Ever since I was introduced to these characters in the previous books in the series, I’ve been waiting to read their story and hopefully experience their HEA. There’s nothing I like more than a tortured, brooding, soulful man, and that’s exactly what Sebastian was.
Finally getting the full story behind Zoey’s rejection from so long ago, and realizing how much both characters changed because of it was heartbreaking, but it was also necessary. And on top of falling in love with Sebastian and Zoey, you get to fall in love with her kids even more than when we were introduced to them in Gavin’s book.
The only thing that held me back from giving this 5 stars were the grammatical errors, and the misuse of names. I knew what the author meant, I just wish she had some additional editing. For people like me, who cringe when we see something like that, it can distract from the writing. But aside from that, if you love the idea of finding your way back to “the one that got away,” I highly recommend reading! And the fact that their are hot “intimate” moments is simply a bonus ;).
