Sometimes first love is better the second time around.
Maya Rao has made her own dreams come true: she’s the owner of a bustling café and bakery in New York and the mother of a beautiful teenage daughter, Samantha. But when Samantha lands in legal trouble over a misdemeanor she didn’t commit, Maya is desperate. Desperate enough to call Samantha’s dad, Sam Hutcherson, whom Maya left abruptly many years ago, and who is now a successful lawyer. The problem? Sam doesn’t know he has a daughter.
Sam has put Maya firmly in his past, despite how shattered he was when she broke his heart. So he’s both dumbfounded and furious to find Maya outside his office asking for his help—with a picture of a girl who looks just like him. But as Sam reconnects with Maya, those old sparks begin to fly. Can he even picture a future with the woman who wrecked his past?

Not What I Expected
I am not going to lie I had a hard time with this read. I was not a fan of going back and fourth from the past and the present, but the novel would not have been the same. The past held the background of the two min characters which was needed.
Overall man what a great second chance story. It was so sweet and down to earth. It really felt like real life.
Sam and Maya were definitely meant to be together and that is very apparent throughout the entire book.
I am really glad that I made the choice to read this novel.
Usually I am not a huge fan of second-chance romances, but this one was so adorable. I loved the cultural aspects of the book and how the author incorporated it in the book. The characters were also really enjoyable and I was rooting for them through out the whole read. Overall, super light and romantic read and I would definitely recommend.
