Who said high school love doesn't last?
Everyone. Or they should if they had any sense. Jane thought she'd seen the last of her no-good, heart-breaking boyfriend years ago when she went off to college...and he broke up with her with a greeting card. But now he's back, looking sexier than ever, and as much as she tells herself she's older and wiser, some feelings never burn out.
Chance McGovern is once bitten, twice shy. Getting over a rocky divorce, all he wants is a stable life for him and his son. Moving them to Pineville, Michigan and taking the assistant fire chief job was the first step to getting back to normal.
And then Jane stomps back into his life, his partner in organizing a charity fireman's ball. Leaving her was one of his biggest regrets. And from the fire in her eyes, she won't let him forget his teenaged screw-up.
But nothing is impossible in Pineville, not even second chances. With their small town rooting for them, Jane and Chance are fighting against more than just their hearts. But their relationship crashed and burned before. Is their love worth the risk?
Jane and Chance
Loved this book with Jane and Chance who were high school sweethearts and were planning a future until he left her a breakup greeting card on her porch telling her he was leaving without her. Years later she is working dispatch when firefighter Chance moves back right across the street from her. He now has his son to care for and is not looking for a relationship but it does not take him and his son long to both fall for Jane.

Putting Out Old Flames
I received a complimentary copy of this book from AuthorsXP and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This is a wonderful start to a series. The story of a second chance with your first love is one that had me laughing out loud so many times that it took a little longer to read! I was completely enthralled with the plot and the characters.
Chance moves from California back to Michigan with his young son, Josh, after his divorce. When Chance graduated high school, he left Michigan for college in California. His college girl-friend got pregnant but the marriage was doomed with her gambling addiction. Chance become the assistant fire chief for the Pineville FD. One of his first duties is as co-chair for the firemen's charity ball. When he goes to the apartment of the other co-chair, he is shocked to see his high school girlfriend, Jane. Ouch! Chance had big dreams of becoming a top neurosurgeon in the country. He wanted to stretch his wings so the day before leaving on a two week vacation with Jane, before going to college, he leaves a gag breakup card on her front porch!!!
Jane worked as a local 9-1-1 dispatch operator. Working on the charity is one that Jane loves but how can she work with her ex?! Granted that was almost a decade ago but after abandoning her, he goes and gets married and starts a family with another woman. Can Jane totally forgive Chance? Will these two have another shot at a HEA? Will Chance's ex come back into the picture and cause problems? You will have to read this for yourself!
This is written in a dual POV format. Getting into these two's thoughts really were a big plus here. The internal debates were so spot on. I laughed until I cried. I adored these two. There were some sexy times but the scenes were so highly glossed over that if you don't like that, you could just skip over them.
