Trent Rockwell has it all—a thriving legal practice, co-ownership of the Rockwell Resort, and a big, loving family. And yet his failed marriage to Reese Nicholson has haunted him for ten long years. Now that he has moved back to Cape Cod Bay to help run his family’s resort, he is surrounded by memories of Reese…and he can’t stop longing for the woman he’d always believed was his one true love.…

At nineteen, artist Reese Nicholson was swept off her feet by the handsome, charming, and incredibly sensual Trent Rockwell. After a whirlwind courtship, they married and moved to New York City, where they hoped all of their personal and professional dreams would come true. But six months later, Reese returned to Rockwell Island brokenhearted and disillusioned.

For a decade, Trent and Reese carefully kept their distance. But all it takes is one accidental late-night encounter to immediately stir the desires they have both tried to bury deep. Powerless to resist the heat between them, every passionate kiss, loving caress, and heartfelt apology draws them closer together. So close that they can’t help but wonder if the promises they once made to love each other forever are still true…

My Thoughts: I always have soft spots for second chance romance, and this one was not an exception.  Trent Rockwell and Reese Nicholson had a great love ten years ago. They were so much in love and promised each other forever. They got married but eventually, they went their separate ways without so much as a closure.

Ten years later, both Trent and Reese are back in Cape Cod. The chemistry was still there, so are the emotions, Trent was willing to take the risk and gamble his heart. Can Reese do the same?

I always believe in one great love and that ‘right-time’ thing for everything. I guess they were young, and were misguided in the past. Reese was just nineteen and Trent was trying to build his name and career. But now, they’re ten years older and wiser – they knew what they have given up in the past, they knew the risk if ever they took a leap right now, and they both knew how strong they still feel for each other. They were each other’s IT, and it never changed. Fate was kind enough to bring them back together. I was glad that Trent was wise enough to take the chance, and I couldn’t blame Reese for stepping back and think about it for a while. Nevertheless, if it’s love – nothing is going to stop it. Love the second time around is much sweeter and steamier. Ah yes, they couldn’t even make it to the bed. #hawt

They were just too happy and everything was too perfect and I was looking forward for their bubble to burst, only that it didn’t happen (and I’m sorta crazy to say but I’m a little disappointed, I was looking forward for a little twist here and there, a little conflict). Nevertheless, the dialogues can melt your hearts and make you swoon. I mean, the writers are the royals in contemporary romance – they knew how to melt and break hearts!

It’s a feel-good, sexy second-chance romance that you will surely love.
