He tasted like tequila and the fake name I gave him was Rose.
Four years ago, I decided to get over one man, by getting under another. A single night and nothing more.
I found my handsome stranger with a shot glass and charming but devilish smile at the end of the bar. The desire that hit his eyes the second they landed on me ignited a spark inside me, instant and hot. He was perfect and everything I didn’t know I needed. That one night may have ended, but I left with much more than a memory.
Four years later, and with a three-year-old in tow, the man I still dream about is staring at me from across the street in the town I grew up in. I don’t miss the flash of recognition, or the heat in his gaze.
The chemistry is still there, even after all these years.
I just hope the secrets and regrets don’t destroy our second chance before it’s even begun.
Left me needing more!
Left me needing more! After Magnolia gets dumped and is away at school, she decides to go out for a night on the town to forget her problems. While out, she meets Brody, an out-of-towner, and decides to have her first and only one-night stand. The morning after changes her life in more ways than one, and years later we find that Magnolia moved home without finishing school to deal with the repercussions and aftermath of her father’s decisions while also pregnant. With no way to contact Brody, Magnolia raises her daughter the best she can with the help of her ex-boyfriend, who’s become her rock once she returned home, but when fate intervenes and Brody moves to town and sees Magnolia and remembers her, all bets are off. I struggled a little with this book because there was no clear decision from her – Brody’s presence causes Magnolia’s ex to make his move while knowing that Brody is trying to win her heart as well, and Magnolia seems to want her ex over Brody. This book ended on a strange cliffhanger though, so I’m intrigued to see what happens in the next book to get my questions answered!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Brady knows that this is the same girl from four years ago, but that can’t be right, her name was Rose. Magnolia freezes when she sees that face, because she didn’t think she would ever see that face again. I really like Brody, but Magnolia, I’m not so quick to jump on her fan bandwagon. I know she’s had a rough time of it lately, but she doesn’t like the town talking but yet she’s letting her ex help her in more ways than one.
My feelings on Robert is why has he not stepped up to declare his feelings before now.
I can’t wait to see what happens in book 2.
A one night encounter between Brody and Magnolia is that one in a lifetime moment. A moment that has left Brody, the love them and leave them kind of guy, thinking about the one that got away and Magnolia wondering if things would have been different if she stayed. That night changed them both in so many different ways. Fait is funny! It brought them together three years ago and BAM it does it again. Neither can deny nor resist the pull they feel towards each other. It was there years ago and it is still here now. Magnolia feels torn though, Robert or Brody. Robert, her ex that dumped her the night she met Brody, has been by her side through all her ups and down since her father died and left a trail of burden and misery and to help her with her beautiful daughter. Brody has come back into her life and wants to pick up where they left off. She knows she wants Brody but how can she forget all the support Robert has given her. The secret she keeps can be what ends it all? Who will she choose in the end?
Willow Winter has once again has lured us into this love triangle. Now we have top wait and see how it ends....
