I loved every second that Jake & Lucy spent together… I only wish I could’ve seen more development in their relationship to understand why their feelings for one another were so intense at the end of the story. Their time at the beach was fun & eventually heated (YAY!) & every kiss & touch they shared was sweet… I just needed more of those kinds of things.
The setting of the book was cool & gave off a young, carefree vibe, which was a nice breath of fresh air. Plus, it provided a great setting for first love. The only thing I didn’t love there… Freaky Fran. I just didn’t get that chick & she was in a good chunk of the story. I like the idea of a wild & crazy-a** roommate but crap… She needed a good smack or two upside the head with a frying pan or something!
Thank gods for Hannah. Too bad she wasn’t Lucy’s roomie throughout the book! I would’ve loved getting the chance to know her more. Very happy she played a part in Lucy’s happily ever after.
I think this book could've used another run-through with an editor. There seemed to be lots of misused & missing words, which made the story a bit choppy for me at times.
Would’ve loved to have gotten more together time between Jake & Lucy at the end (at least an epilogue) but I’m pleased as punch that they got a second chance at love with one another. :)

I love how the story was played out. It started with the present then went back to the past. I got to see and experience the love that developed between two people destined to be together. I felt the love that Jake and Lucy had for each other from the moment they met. There was instant attraction no matter the circumstance that brought them together. I knew then that what Jake felt was real love.
A very heart warming second chance romance that made me smile a lot, cry a bit and swoon til the end. I love how this book made me feel all the emotions of two people falling in love. I was happy when they were just starting out and developed into something more. I was heart-broken at one point when their love was tested. It made me mad at the situation they were put into. But in the end, my heart was mended when they finally got back together. A true love that withstood the test of time.
This is the kind of book I needed right now. A book that made me think of my own life and my own marriage. One important thing that I learned is that, communication really is a big factor for a relationship to succeed. Jumping to conclusions without hearing the explanation might cause too much damage. I have had my own share of miscommunications. But thanks to this amazing book, I was reminded of it. To stop, listen and then talk things over.
Thank you so much Steph for writing such a wonderful love story. Though I would have wanted to read more especially on their time together, the ending was perfect. My heart was whole again. A must read for all who believe in love.
Most of the story was retrospective, looking back at past events, events that had left them both feeling cheated almost. The author did a great job of laying out their time together from their less than stellar start, through the glory of getting to know each other, right up until it all fell apart.
Their time is Spain was short but that didn’t mean it was insignificant and throughout the story we got to see what it meant to both of them, they worked well as a couple and it was fun watching them get to know each other back then.
But now we were a decade on, a lot older and wiser and the question was …what now?
I liked the look at what they had, had previously and what they had now, I just think I missed a bit by not knowing enough about what had happened to the pair of them in between.
Why had their never been the occasion for them to catch up with each other until now because I am certain that in Lucy’s imagination she never thought that her first sight of him after 10 years would be at her friend’s wedding!
While I think Jake and Lucy were a super couple and but I can’t say the same for some of the other characters. Most of them were ok but I really didn’t like Fran, actually I had to actively stop myself from skimming through paragraphs that she was in, she really grated on my very last nerve! Although I did love Hannah.
I’m not sure what the authors plans are for this pair but I think I might like to see where they go from here.
