Marisa Danieli has been working her way up in the world. She refuses to always have financial worries like her mother had throughout her life. And Marisa refuses to fall for a sporty man. After all the females in her line has never had the best of luck when it comes to men with sports on their minds. But if Marisa ever wants a chance of rising up from being a teacher to becoming the assistant principle of her old high school then she needs to meet one of those men again, and get him to join the school fundraiser as the headliner. Of course that would be a lot easier without their... complicated... past.
Cole Serenghetti has been working as CEO of his fathers company for a few months, but its no secret that he wants more out of his life. He wants back on the ice, and since he can no longer play in the NHL he is wanting a chance to be a coach. However, Cole's father is resistant to the idea of selling the family company. So when a past flame shows up in his life became a bit more complicated. Especially since that past flame stabbed him in the back. What is worst, or better depending on your outlook, is that the past flame needs his help. Yet there is no way Cole would ever help Marisa. But then again maybe second chances are worth it.
This was a great second chance romance story. And the plot line was amazing. The only reason I didn't give this story a 5 star rating was because the love scenes seemed a little off, but other then that the writing style was phenomenal and it is so easy to fall in love with the main characters. As well as the secondary characters. I can not wait to read more about the family dynamics in future books by Ms. DePalo.
~A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Selection.
Cole likes the looks of the sexy lady approaching him until he finds out who she is. Marisa and he had had a brief fling in high school. One that had been pretty intense, until she’d betrayed him. And now here she was wanting him to headline at their alma mater’s fundraiser. It would be good PR for his business but he didn’t want a round 2 with her. He wasn’t even sure he could trust her.
As Cole and Marisa begin to negotiate and plan for the fundraiser, they quickly discover that the sparks they’d felt in high school are still red hot. When caught kissing by their exes, they decide to pretend to be in a relationship until after the fundraiser to protect their reputations. Except somewhere along the way it becomes difficult to determine if it’s pretend or if this intense relationship is for real. Could they put the past behind them and take this second chance?
What a great introduction to what promises to be an exciting new series. A sweet and sexy story of 2 people who by discovering each other again, discover a lot about themselves as well. Readers will fall in love with the Serenghetti brothers. I can’t wait to read what’s in store for them next. This was my first book by author Anna DePalo and I am hooked!
I really like Marisa she has always felt herself lacking she is more on the nerdy side always with her nose in a book growing up. It is no wonder she picked a teaching career. She has had a long time crush on Cole. One night many years ago he was her first and things changed you know how boys are they get what they want and never call. Some things aren’t always as they seem there is much more to this story. Marisa was made to do something that broke her heart and hurt others she really has never forgiven herself. All in all she is a very strong women and not a quitter she is going after what she wants which is to raise money to help add on to her school. In doing so it puts her back under Cole’s charm and his demands.
Cole is a little complicated he is an easy man to like and is very handsome with his rugged looks. Marisa many years ago hit him right where it hurt sure he wasn’t totally innocent well he wasn’t innocent at all but still she should not have done what she did. He has to come home to help take over his father business after his stroke. His father wants him to take it over he has other plans and Marisa sure isn’t in them. He does have to admit she grew up damn sexy and if he is honest with his self he wouldn’t mind picking up where they left off that is only in the bed room she isn’t getting close to his heart again.
This has a great plot from the start the author grabs your attention pulling you in. You can feel the shock in Cole as he realizes who Marisa is the word play fits this story very well. The supporting characters are something else from his brothers who throw in some humor to her cousin who has a little tempter and a sense of humor all rolled into one. I loved the parents who give a lot of love to their children they play a big part of this story from misunderstandings to how they were raised. You can feel the pain of each character as they play out their roll learning to trust again and overcoming their past learning from their mistakes and finding out all things are not as they seem. You will smile and feel the pain as the author takes you through the story of lost love of teenagers to adult who what a very strong pull with a powerful attraction. I found this a very touching heartwarming read and can’t wait for the brother’s stories. I hope you will pick this story up giving it a read there is nothing like reading a story from a Harlequin author you know when you pick it up you are in for a treat of sorrow, love, lost and pain with a wonderful HEA that will touch you all the way to your heart.
