Korinne Anders had it all. She had the perfect job, the perfect house, and the perfect husband. When tragedy strikes, her world takes a devastating turn. Six months after losing her husband to a car accident, Korinne vows it to herself never to love again. If she doesn’t allow another man in her heart, then there’s no reason for her to feel the pain of loss. This plan seems to work, but is put to the test when Korinne’s best friend can’t stand to see her suffering any longer.

Korinne’s long-time friend, Jenna Perry, has an idea and it involves helping her friend find the spark of life in her soul no matter what it takes. Korinne didn’t know that Jenna’s plan meant bringing back a past love, a second chance with the man that Korinne had to leave in college, but always kept a place for in her heart.

When Galen Matthews learns of Korinne’s loss and that she’s finally moved back home, he wants nothing more than to be there for her. The love he felt for Korinne years ago has never left him, and now he’s given a second chance to not only mend her heart of her loss, but to also continue the love they shared in the past. Will his love and determination make her strong enough to give fate a second chance, or will her fear of losing another love make her run away? 

What will Korinne do when she’s faced with a love so powerful that no matter what she does there’s nowhere to run from it?

My Review:

This book had me reading for hours! I absolutely love it, from the start to the very end. L.P. Dover did an amazing job creating a book filled with twists that had me guessing the ending. It's definitely an emotional rollercoaster ride. Korinne had everything she ever wanted in her life, but one day tragedy strikes and her husband dies in a car accident. Filled with grieve, she moves back to her old town and decides to spend time alone to get herself back together. But just when she thought her life was taking turns for the worst, her best friend Jenna comes in to rescue her by taking her to a party where she sees non other than her ex-college boyfriend. What Korinne didn't know was that her friend was already making matchmaking plans. Having a history together, Korinne embarks into a new adventure when she starts seeing Galen (only as friends), but things soon start heating up and the two can no longer hide what they're feeling inside. With that said, Korinne will have to make a choice whether or not to move on with her life with Galen or grieve the lose of her husband and stick to her old life. 

There are a lot of choices that Korinne has to make throughout the book that make her vulnerable, she seems to be not ready to have a future with Galen and that's a tough choice to make. Whereas Galen is one those characters that are just so kind and is willing to do just about anything for her. I enjoyed reading their moments together, the writing made those scenes stand out from the rest of the story. There were also times when the book had me guessing, and the ending twists! I couldn't stop reading without finding out what was going to happen next. Overall, the story made it to my favorite's list and I recommend everyone to read it, you will not regret it.
