The book starts off with Kori and Blake, they are college sweethearts. They are expecting a baby and they are planning their future together. A terrible accident leaves Kori grieving, but also celebrating the birth of her son, Rhett. She moves back home to Georgia to raise him and trying to move on with her life. She is really struggling, she has no idea how to let go and try to move on. She has a wonderful support system in her family and friends.
Reed is the sexy cowboy that broke her heart before she meet Blake. He was her first love and he made a stupid mistake that caused her to walk out of his life. Over the years he has become a good and respectable man and has never gotten over Kori. He always wanted her back and now that she's back in town he tries to rekindle at least the friendship they use to have. Can Kori forgive him and allow herself to open her heart again? Can she let go of Blake in order to let herself fall in love again?
This was an amazingly emotional book. You will cry, laugh and cry again. I love second chance romances and this is one of the best ones I have read in a while. It's a book about learning to let go, forgiving and the healing power of love. Give it a chance and you will fall in love with Reed and Kori, they were perfect for one another. i'm looking forward to the next book in the series. This author has an amazing style of writing, you definitely feel like you are right there with the characters and feel their emotions too.

This book was good. That's really it.
That sounds dumb to write, but this book didn't really have anything outstanding to keep me interested. It wasn't bad or poorly written/edited. It just didn't have that special something that keeps me from putting it down. I think it partly has to do with a lack of drama. I don't mean conflict, but I think it just seemed fairly perfect in the beginning. She has grief and that pops back up, but then Reed is around and everything is good. The back half of the book was far more interesting than the first, and I was happy I chose to stick it out. I almost feel like had the book had consistent alternating viewpoints between Kori and Reed, I think that could have the aspect to keep things a little more interesting.
I thought the author did a really great job on capturing Kori's grief, and I really admired how she made Kori able to move on, but I felt it was done in a time appropriate manner. As you get to the end of the story, you can see more of why Reed loves Kori, and I enjoyed seeing part of the book from his perspective. I say this because as we see Kori grieving, and trying to keep Blake's memory alive, she really does struggle. But she remains kind and a good friend and parent throughout. I truthfully became more interested in Kori's character after getting to see the story from Reed's perspective. So I go back to my original thought that alternating viewpoints throughout would have been better.
However, this story was just a little disjointed for me in certain spots. One part that really threw me was the scene where something scares Kori at her home. I kept thinking the author was really going somewhere with that, but it never became anything. I kept thinking it would because at a later point in the story, Reed mentions it, but again...nothing. It seemed sort of unnecessary. It was such a dramatic and scary moment for Kori that I kept thinking there would be more significance.
Another part of the story that sort of confused me was Kim popping back up into the picture. The scene where she is at the hospital just seemed weird. Like I could understand the author wanting that conflict to happen; and to be honest, from the beginning, you can sense it will happen. But I thought that seemed like a really odd time and place for it.
Overall, I liked the book. I felt a few spots needed to be cleaned up, but only from just not seeming to add much or just be unnecessary. I am looking forward to see more from this author because this book was really well written, great editing, and I also felt the author really captured the essence of grief really beautifully. I've seen others try to cover it, but this author is one of the few times that I felt really described the actual aftermath of grief well.
The author spends so much time on Kori's grief over losing Blake, that the actual redemptive romance between Kori and Reed is not developed properly. In a way, it doesn't even matter because neither Kori or Reed are likable characters.
I already have the other books in this series, but I am now reluctant to read them. I am also reluctant to reccommend this book or author to anyone else.
