"This book was a breath of fresh air for me- nothing too heavy and a great love story!" -Roasted Romance
"...you can't help but fall in love with Joe, he is like a warm sweater and hot chocolate in front of a fireplace on a cold wintry day. You just want to melt along side Rachel as she falls in love with him."-Suzanne, reviewer
"This book consumed me. I was sneaking chapters in at work. Getting excited when friends canceled plans for the night and stayed up WAY past my bedtime to finish it. Everything, legit everything about this book pulled me in. Honestly from the start."-Trashy Biblio Blog
Rachel Sachs finally has her life together— almost. She owns a salon in the town she's always loved, dances the Running Man like nobody's business, has regular wine nights with her girls, and does really good hair.
After a trail of failed Tinder hook-ups, she's finally ready for something real...
Until she sees Joe Silver— the object of her high school obsession and the breaker of her young heart. That might be a little too real.
Fourteen years ago, Rachel ghosted when Joe made it clear she'd never have him. But now? He's not letting her get away. And soon they're right back to where they started, only instead of the all night instant messaging they did in high school, they're blowing up each other's phones with texts.
Rachel wants nothing more than to savor the slow, delicious burn of falling for Joe Silver again, but can she trust that what they're building is the real she's looking for? Or will history repeat itself and leave her with another broken heart?
Rachel and Joe almost got together when they were younger but fate wasn't on their side. Now they are back in the same city, it is a chance for a second chance.
Their almost relationship sent Rachel into an unhealthy marriage. One she is still regaining her confidence from. Joe is everything she wanted and still wants. Along with his hotness, Joe compliments her by being supportive and not being destructive towards her.
This had plenty of ups and downs along the way as they both confront their posts and seize their futures together. I enjoyed this book and its characters. The writing pulled me into their story and I was fully engaged throughout, reading it in one sitting.
