My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was my first novel from this author and I really liked it. While the blurb intrigued me, I really had no expectations but glad I got to read it.
You could say this is a second chances story as Jordan and Chase meet in high school, dream of a future together and then Chase makes a decision that rips them apart. Until ten years later, an accident brings them together in a rather unconventional way, which is very emotional and pure torture for Jordan. But despite it all, she stays the course and is fully there for Chase.
But it's not only about second chances and forgiveness but also about love that endures the hard and messy stuff that life throws at you. The external influences that chip away at an individual and can be a strain on relationships. There was one particular jerk that had me wanting to wring his neck in frustration for all his meddling and nasty ways.
Both Jordan and Chase have scars from their first break up and the years apart, this story is their journey of healing and finding their way back together.
I also liked the secondary characters and hope the author has plans for a story about their best friends. I look forward to more from this author.
