Scarlett Deveareux has returned to Saltwater Springs, SC to start her own bakery. She finds herself in need of help and it comes in the unlikely form of her former boyfriend, Luke Garrity, who now owns his own construction firm. Unfortunately, she left him ten years ago with no explanation and broke his heart. And Luke is still harboring some anger, and they both have unresolved feelings and secrets.

They find themselves interacting on a daily basis after a decade apart. Their attraction is still there and it only grows stronger the more time they spend together.

Luke is kind, protective charming and loves hard. He is still confused and hurt over their past as he was blindsided when she left. He felt inferior as a younger man, but has worked hard to build a life and take care of those he cares about.

Scarlett was wealthy and controlled when younger. But now she is independent minded, starting over, and trying to follow her dreams. But she is fearful of her secrets getting out, hurting Luke further, and of being gossiped about in the small town. She has her own feelings of inferiority and insecurities. And the reason she left still impacts her present and future.

Luke wants to come in and save the day and help her recover from some recent questionable choices. It is hard to resist his help and their attraction. They have a connection, history, and chemistry. But she is determined to keep her heart out of it because she is fearful that it cannot lead anywhere permanent. What will happen when all of her secrets come out? Will that be the final thing that will make Luke give up on her?

I liked the small town feel and the fun, quirky characters.

This is the first book I have read by Elisabeth Grace and she has a fan for life now! What an amazing second chance love story!

Luke and Scarlett were high school sweethearts until Scarlett leaves town very unexpectedly. When Scarlett returns to town many years later, she gets more then she bargained for. Will Luke be the one to save her? Will Scarlett finally tell Luke why she left town and never contacted him again? I guarantee you're heart will break as you read this story (at some point). But never fear, it all works out in the end one way or another. I felt my heart sink several times while reading and found myself a little teary a time or two as well. (Maybe I'm just over emotional.) Elisabeth sure knows how to pull at your heartstrings and I found myself angry with Luke as well as Scarlett a time or two.

Elisabeth did an awesome job of making me feel like I knew these characters personally, and like I was right there with them watching this story unfold. Well done Elisabeth, well done!

I found myself thinking as I was reading this book a few chapters at a time that it would make an excellent movie or weekly TV show!

I have read everything that Elisabeth Grace has released to date and loved it all.

This story was no exception. I read it as it was released every other week in her newsletter and it was torture waiting to find out what life held in store for Luke (HOT!) and Lettie. (Um and I love her name.) I then re-read it in its entirety yesterday when it was released. I didn't want to put it down.

This book came at a perfect time for me and it really helped me with some personal things I was struggling with. I love that Elisabeth's books have a way of making you look at other sides to life.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves HEAs and second chance romances.

Built to Last is a powerful second chance romance that is perfect for all lovers of second chances. This is an emotional and beautiful read that was hard to put down!

Luke and Scarlett haven't seen one another for ten years, when Scarlett broke Luke's heart and ran off to college and never looked back. When Scarlett shows back up in town, she never expected to run back into Luke. The chemistry between these two is still as strong, if not stronger than it was all those years ago. Both of these characters were hesitant to be around one another. Scarlett is hiding a secret, and Luke doesn't want to have his heart shattered again.

Throughout the book, you figure out what Scarlett's big secret was, and I understand why she was hesitant to tell Luke (even though he very much deserved to know). She believes she can't give Luke the life he dreamed of, but the love between them is too strong that nothing can come between it. Luke and Scarlett dance around each other for a long time, and when they finally decide to give it a go, even with Scarlett's persistence that it is only for a short term, you know they will make it.

I did disagree with Scarlett's decision to not come clean with Luke. What she went through was horrible, but Luke had the right to know all those years ago why she did what she did, and would have been there for her. She made a decision without ever thinking about Luke's feelings, and that was awful in my opinion. Luke when he finally finds out the truth was rightfully angry, but it was how he came to terms with it that was beautiful.

Seeing the town embrace Scarlett back into the fold was awesome. Her friends were there for you, and I loved the small town gossip that she had to deal with. Mrs.
