A new second chance stand alone office romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde...
Five years ago, Sam and I fell in love just as hard as we fell apart.
The last thing I expect is for him to walk into my office as the new legal counsel.
Now, I have to see him every single day. We vow to remain professional, but it's a small office. The sly glances and his blistering charm are unavoidable.
It all feels so familiar. Too comfortable. After what happened the last time...I should know better. If I'm not careful, he'll break my heart all over again.
But being with Sam is everything I've ever wanted.
Maybe it's worth giving my heart to him a second time.
Great start to a new series!
I'm a big fan of K.A. Linde and of second chance romance books, so this was a win-win for me. If you've read a Linde book before, you know she's not all hearts and flowers, and I love her for it.
This is Lark's story. It starts with a blast from the past in the form of her ex-boyfriend Sam. It’s clear, despite the amount of time that’s passed, that there is still something lingering between them. But, for now, secrets and lies are keeping them apart.
I loved their journey from bitter and misunderstood to falling in love all over again. It was angsty and sexy and sweet and very real. I felt all the emotions right alongside Lark and Sam.
The story had a lot going on with the two main characters, as well as with the secondary characters, but it was easy enough to follow along. There are a lot of references from the books in the Cruel series, but I would still consider this a standalone. Nothing was mentioned that wouldn’t be understood if you haven’t read the other series. I think the author did a good job of possibly making the reader curious about those books. I’ve read that series, so I really enjoyed seeing some old friends and getting some new insight into characters that had a more minimal role previously. I’m excited for what’s next and can’t wait for more from this world!
So very good!! I absolutely loved it
Review: Seasons 1: The Lying Season
Lying Season by K.A. Linde is the first full length interconnected standalone story in her Seasons series. The full story of second chances and fated love when Larkin St Vincent and Sam Rutherford meet again in the re-election campaign offices for Mayor Kensington. After a bitter ending, Lark isn't sure how to handle seeing Sam again. She has all these feelings that she hasn't dealt with and seeing him brings everything back to the surface and leaves her feeling raw. Sam is living in New York, somewhere he didn't think he'd ever be, especially when Lark and he ended abruptly five years ago. But moving here with his girlfriend a couple of years ago placed him in New York and then his new job landed him in Larks world, once again.
Angst-ridden, filled with emotion, heartbreak, passion, and pain, this story was a slow build to a great ending, and the perfect introduction to Lark's crew from the Upper East Side which we will meet more of in the upcoming books in this series. LOVED IT! Enjoy!
