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.
Not my favorite
This story drags on for so long… like 75% of it is Magnolia trying to get herself to tell Brody that he MIGHT be Bridget’s father. Magnolia’s character is infuriating honestly
Disappointing cliff hanger!
This felt like an incomplete novel! Plus I didn’t care enough about the characters to want to buy the second book to see how the first novel should have properly ended. I could see how this would work if it was a tv series, but in a book, it falls flat.
