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?
This book was beautiful. Right off the bat, I fell in love with Korinne. This is the story of her finding herself and true love after the death of her husband, the love of her life. Early on, we realize that her first husband was amazing. He was loving, kind, brilliant, and just a great husband. I am so happy that he was portrayed that way and we find out he has no skeletons in his closet.
Korinne is devastated. She's lost and sad and doesn't want anything to do with love again. Little does she know, her sneaky little friend, Jenna, is matchmaking behind her back. She manages to bring Korinne back to her past love. Enter Galen. Galen is beautiful. I fell head over arse for Galen. He is patient and still in love with Korinne. For him, she is the one that got away. So, can he convince her to give love another try?
Guess you need to buy the book to find out because I am not giving anything else away. I teared up, I laughed, I held my breath, I screamed NO NO NO. This book had me all over the place.
