New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak returns to Silver Springs, where no past mistake is so big the heart can’t find a way to fix it.
Jada Brooks couldn’t have known how her life would change when she fell for bad boy Maddox Richardson back in high school. She couldn’t have known his troubled brother would leave hers forever crippled. Or that she’d be forced to shun Maddox completely—only to discover she was carrying his child.
Although Maddox was devastated by the events that transpired that fateful night, losing Jada was the worst of it. He’s back in Silver Springs, ready to make amends and provide the kind of youth outreach that once saved him. If he’d known Jada was in town, too, he would never have come.
Jada has returned to Silver Springs to be with family after her father’s death. But when she sees Maddox, every tough decision she’s made concerning their now twelve-year-old daughter begins to haunt her. Falling for him again is so tempting, but not only does she stand to alienate her family—if he finds out about Maya, she could lose what matters most.

This is book 5 in the Silver Springs series and it features Maddox and Jada. These two have quite the history that involves both their families. I was not able to feel any deep-seated love between them. It just felt like unresolved sexual feelings. I felt so bad for Jada for the way her parents, and later her mother, treated her. And Maya, she’s a real social butterfly. This story felt like it was more about the tragic events that happened between Atticus and Tobias. How do you get over the kind of anger that Atticus must feel? Tragic!
This is about second chances, moving on from the past and forgiveness. This story needed a deeper romance and better structure. I had a problem with the text messages. There was no clear separation between a text message and the sentences in a paragraph. Although this was a great story line, it was not my favorite in the series because I missed the feeling of reading one of this authors beautiful, emotional romances. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.
Incredible second chance romance
Jada and Maddox found love as teenagers but then one night shattered their worlds and Jada’s family pushed them apart. Jada has returned to Silver Springs with her 12-year-old daughter, Maya, to help her mom run her cookie business. Her mother still carries a lot of anger toward Jada for what happened that night that changed her brother’s life. As she is working to help the business and pay the bills, she never expects to see Maddox back in town. Maddox is excited to be the principal at the New Horizons girls’ school but coming back to Silver Springs is still risky. When he sees Jada in town, he is shocked since she should be in LA but all the old feelings he had for her are still there. I loved Jada and Maddox’s journey. One night can change so much but years later, can forgiveness and acceptance be found? There is a lot of hurt to overcome on both sides which gutted me at times yet found myself understanding and then wanting that second chance to be given to them for love.
Unforgettable you by Brenda Novak is book number 5 in the Silver Springs series. And just like all the other books in this series, it was an outstanding read! So much emotion and such a lovely read! I really enjoyed it!
Jada and Maddox definitely have their own unique story and that’s what I love so much. This author’s characters are always so real! You forget sometimes that these are fictional characters. It seems like you’re reading about someone you actually know.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to everyone!!
