I have a soft spot in my heart for second chance romances, and this new to me author got the recipe just right. I mean, the classic wedding date just got a lot more interesting when the date”s the one who got away, the first love that the heroine has never gotten over.
It didn’t hurt that the hero is a little alpha, a bit sweet, and a whole lot of fun. While their complicated past shaded their perceptions of how their romance never did blossom, the present wiser and more matured selves are brace enough to take that leap of faith, and fall again.
That last section where Hayes wooed Saylor via social media, inspired gifts and his A-game? That was one of the best bits of courting, beaten over by the proposal/ wedding. A 5-star afternoon well spent that puts the warm and fuzzy back into my new year weekend.
