Sometimes it does.
But most of the time, Real Life tosses major complications your way.
Such is the case with Presley and Zach. They didn't just fall in love as teenagers, they slammed into it, helpless to feel anything other than full-bodied, full-hearted, fully realized love for each other. They managed to make it work even when Zach left Texas for a baseball scholarship at a college in Maine. Surrendering her own dreams of culinary school, Presley followed him there. And then, on the cusp of her freshman year, things changed. Real Life threw a major league complication.
Now, seventeen years later, Presley has survived a betrayal so gut wrenching and catastrophic that she has no choice but to return to the home she has all but forsaken. The one positive? Zach won't be there.
Oh, he is THERE, faithful readers. And all of the misunderstandings of the past two decades are about to rain down upon your former lovers, with each needing to confront the other in order to move forward.
At first glance, this is a "second chance romance." But Corinne Michaels has more going on than that. Presley abandoned her past in exchange for her future, but when that future imploded, she had to return home. Michaels examines what happens when the thing you swore you would never do becomes the very thing you must do in order to survive. At stake is not just Presley, but her two sons as well. Presley has decided that the only breaks she can make in her life are clean ones, leaving nothing lingering. As she discovers when she returns home, though, you can't live like that. You can't excise people from your life. This is a lesson Presley needs to learn not once, not even twice, but three times.
Zach has lessons to learn, too. He needs to accept his role in what happened to his and Presley's relationship, just as he needs to accept his role in what happens from here. Just because he makes the right decision for him does not mean it's the right decision for Presley, too, or for the two of them together.
No decision in a relationship, whether friendly or romantic, happens without it affecting the the two people involved, as well as those around them. Michaels illustrates this repeatedly in the book. Staying isn't merely a question for Zach or Presley, it's also for their friends and families.
Not that the book is heavy and depressing. Corinne Michaels includes some deliciously spectacular hot headboard rocking, the stuff of which quiver is made of. Strap on your vibrators, girls. You will need them.
Considering Michaels subtitled the book "Return to Me #1," you can assume that there will be more in the series. I look forward to them all. Corinne Michaels writes in a way that keeps you riveted to her story, makes you care about her characters, and makes you squeeze your thighs together.
