In just twenty-seven short years, Alexa Sullivan Tate has already lost the two great loves of her life. One to the Army; the other in a tragic car accident. Two years after the latter, a ghost from the past reappears, igniting feelings in Alexa she’d thought long dormant.
Jace McAllister has spent the last ten years in the Army, defusing bomb after bomb, trying to forget the girl who once set his world on fire. For him, she’s always been the one who got away. After a not-so-chance encounter places her back in his line of sight, he’s locked eyes on target, and won’t let her go without a fight.
Ten years ago their chemistry smoldered, and now the sparks threaten to light a fuse leading to an explosion between them even Jace can’t control. Not that he wants to. But when love has slipped through your fingertips before, how can you trust it will once again remain?
Will Alexa’s fear of love and loss destroy their second chance at a beautiful future before it can even begin?
I really wanted to love this book but I don't. I like it, it was a very enjoyable story but I don't love it. And that is because of my personal preverances. I'm not that into the insta love kind of thing and the sappy romance. For me this was to sappy at times. So sappy that it doesn't feel real anymore. A bit to much. The insta love wasn't to bad. The H and h where good friends, fell in love, had a moment together but got separated.
Overall I found this story really enjoyable and sweet. It's a story about second chances in love. The h went through a great loss, she lost her husband and is feeling lost. She get's in touch with the H and she is having trouble moving on and letting go of het past.
The H didn't let go of his past as well. He is still as much in love with h as he was in the past. He let her slip through his fingers once, and he's not planning on that happening again.
