It’s never too late for a second chance at first love in this compelling novel from New York Times bestselling author Jaci Burton.
When Loretta Simmons returns to Hope, Oklahoma, after a disastrous marriage, she’s determined to remain independent for the sake of her daughter. The only thing standing in her way is Deacon Fox—the man she loved and walked away from years ago.
Since Loretta owns the bookstore right next to his current renovation project, Deacon can’t escape the woman who broke his heart. Throw in her adorable little girl and one ridiculously oversized dog, and they’re almost a family. Only he can’t be that guy—what they had was once in a lifetime.
But love has a funny way of reopening a door you thought was firmly closed....
Sexy Second Chance
I love the characters of Hope! This second chance romance is terrific!
Loretta finds her strengh divorces her husband, moves back to Hope and is raising her daughter on her own terms. Deacon was hurt by Loretta when she broke up with him after their high school graduation in spite of that, he is there to help, support and encourage Loretta. They are wary at first but, still have a connection after all these years later. It is a beautiful relationship that now includes a little girl.
I highly recommend this book as well as the other books in the Hope series!
I'm not sure who wrote this
But it really doesn't sound like Jaci Burton at all. The dialog is fake and overuses the characters names to the point where it's distracting, and it's completely lacking the usual emotion and body language usually conveyed in her books. I am having a really hard time with this book.
