Book Description

*~*~* A STEAMY, heart-wrenching love story by NYT and USA TODAY Bestselling author, L.P. DOVER. It's about how two people who were meant to be together get their second chance at a new life, a new love, and a new beginning. Can be read as a STANDALONE. *~*~*

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?

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

With each determined step, I made my way over to the man that was beginning to steal my heart ... again. Fear and desire coincided within me, but I couldn't stop. I knew I shouldn't let him in, but I couldn't deny the way my heart was beating for this man. It was as if all of my desires, all of the pent up emotions and feelings in my body had me desperate for this man's touch, Galen's touch. The man I fell in love with years ago. His eyes grew wider the closer I got, but I knew I wasn't going to back down. I needed to feel him in every way possible, and I needed it then. In one swift move I crushed my lips to his and wrapped my arms around his neck, holding him tight. His arms engulfed me, protecting me in his embrace, but also unsure of what to do.
"What are you doing?" he groaned, breaking away from the kiss. "I thought you wanted to take things slow."
A fire so hot burned behind those pale blue eyes of his, and I knew taking things slow wasn't going to happen. "I don't think I can," I breathed against his lips.
"Please don't say that. I don't think I can control myself if you let me in. I've wanted you from the moment I saw you, and it's already hard enough to keep my distance."
"I don't want you to keep your distance." I sighed. "I need you, Galen, and I need you now." Those words were all it took for the fire to consume him, to consume us both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Galen u hottie you March 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
First off let me just say there are some 'slam bam thank you ma'am' moments in this bookie that are HOT, so with that being said please make sure you're 18 and older when you read this. Now on to the important stuff in this book like Galen LOVED that boy right off, he's so sweet "I just wish you would have told me. There probably wasn't anything I could have done, but it would have been nice to know." I paused to let that sink in and then I asked, "So Jenna's playing matchmaker again?" He's romantic, well he knows just what to say to make your heart go pitter patter, "And I've missed you. I've thought about you everyday since you left." Now Korinne that girl she made me laugh she made me cry almost made me wet myself with some of the things that came out of her mouth, "How could I forget," I quipped sarcastically. "I do have a question though. Was she always a rude a** b****, or was that just me she was acting that way to? I swear I could sense some rivalry there, but I chose to ignore it for the sake of Carson." This book isn't all flowers, and unicorns there is some heart stopping moments when I wanted to kill Leslie because I was thinking 'WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!!' There were also times I wanted to skip a few pages just to see what was gonna happen (Come on everyone does it or wants to do it at some point with a book right?) So to sum up this book in four words would be, emotional, heart wrenching, lovable!

5.0 out of 5 stars a romance for the ages March 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this as an ARC from the Author

Stars: 5++

Overall: This is the kind of book that romance movies come from. It was beautiful, raw, emotional and gripping. So I would first like to thank the author Ms. Dover for giving me a chance to read her book. (She's is amazing and you all should stop by her page and show her some love) She's has a incredible was a pulling you into her stories and making you feel what they are feeling, to see how they see things. Through the whole book I kept putting myself in Korinne's shoes and the emotions i felt were so raw and very hard at times. *Crying Moments- Be Warned Now* I couldn't begin to imagine what it would be like to loose someone so close to you like that and the author had a way of making me see what it would be like if I had gone through that. Ok, now I need to move onto the happier romance part. The love the was flowing off the pages felt so real and magical. It was beautiful to see the relationship bloom before my eyes because at times i wasn't sure if she was going to get scared a run. I swooned every time he whispered i love you or that he would always be there. Galen is definitely my new dream man.

Characters: Korinne & Galen

Page Turner: Yes! I didn't put the romance down.

Series Cont: No

Recommend: Yes !! I HIGHLY recommend this book.

***I will begin with my usual warning... I am not a fan of Romance.. and even less of Descriptive Romance or Erotica. That said I give my word that regardless of my personal preference I will not rob this book of an honest review***
This story starts out sad. I have to admit I got choked up as I read the prologue. This author clearly knows her craft as she weaves Kori's heartbreak and fears into the reader with the very first sentence.
I enjoyed the split point of view, as the story bounced between Korinne and Galen. I feel multiple points of view in a story narrow the chance of a gap or loop hole within the weave of the story.
As far as love stories go, this one is definitely better than most I've read. It doesn't have a forced feel to it. The writing flows at a steady pace allowing the reader to sink into the depths of the story.
The whole story feels real. The reader can relate to the events happening. When Jenna and Kori talk to each other on the phone the excitement between them pulses so much you can't help but feel it too.
The fact that Korinne and Galen can pretty much pick up where they left off (even if Korinne is trying very hard for that not to happen) warms the heart. It's not often a person runs into an old lover that actually missed and has the opportunity these two have.
I give Galen tons of credit. The man is genius using Korinne's gifts to get his way. Sure it was sneaky, but sometimes you have to be just a little sneaky to get what you want!
There is definite chemistry between the two and I'm certain that had things not happened as they did in the time before this part of their story, then this story would never have needed to be written at all.
I enjoyed reading all the ways Galen wooed Korinne. It was all very romantic and endearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG Love this! April 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read this author's other books and I absolutely loved them. When I heard about this one I literally squealed with excitement! Don't judge Anyway, I don't rehash story lines or plot twists, so if you want to know what happens, go read it.

I want to say, this was a great book! Like, stay-up-all-night-be-miserable-the-next-day kind of great. And I was. *shudders* But really, it's a heart warming story filled with sooo much smexy that I was drooling. (The author owes me a new pillow case now! LOL) It was absolutely awesome and I am now buying it in paperback cause,'s that good. Only the awesome ones make it on the shelves :)

If you haven't read this one, you're missing out. Seriously. This author's writing is like fine wine. It has gotten better and better since her first book. I know that it will keep getting even better! She's got the goods folks. Make sure you check out this book.
