In the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Don’t Let Go, it’s never too late for a second chance at first love…
When Loretta Simmons returns to Hope, Oklahoma, after a disastrous marriage, she’s determined to remain independent for the sake of her daughter. The only thing standing in her way is Deacon Fox—the man she loved and walked away from years ago.
Since Loretta owns the bookstore right next to his current renovation project, Deacon can’t escape the woman who broke his heart. Throw in her adorable little girl and one ridiculously oversized dog, and they’re almost a family. Only he can’t be that guy—what they had was once in a lifetime.
But love has a funny way of re-opening a door you thought was firmly closed…

This is Loretta and Deacon’s story. Loretta and Deacon were high school sweethearts until her family convinced her that she should be with a different man. She went along with her parent’s suggestion even though it broke Deacon’s heart and her own heart. Now years later she is back in her hometown and divorced. She is all about just raising her daughter and she has no time for a man. But Deacon still lives in her small town and the chemistry between them is still burning hot. Can they resist each other? First before having any future they have to overcome all the hurts of the past. Can they do that or is it just too late for that? Can Loretta try and have a relationship with Deacon when she knows if they break up what kind of impact that will have on her daughter Hazel that is already in love with Deacon? Can these two get a second chance at love? Or will she always listen to the advice of her parents and shut Deacon out?
I loved these characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.
I highly recommend this book.
