Book Review
They were the perfect couple, and they have the perfect relationship, until Amanda gave up on their relationship. Years later Jordan is one of the hottest quarterback in NFL, he’s rich, famous and have women at his beck and call. It was a TV special that had her curious and had her DM’ing him over IG. What she didn’t expect is for him to reply and remember her. Soon, he’d invited her back to them game, and back into his life. Will they take risk and have their relationship work out this time? Or will they repeat the same mistake again?
What I love? I love second chance romance! The fact that they easily pick up their relationship from where it is. They have an undeniable connection ever since, and it didn’t diminish. Love the fact that Jordan will do anything to have her back, he woos her endlessly.
BUT. There’s that one powerful word. I hated that Amanda was insecure, and the fact that she points Jordan to her new friends or colleague and says that she’d gone out with him. It was like hearing someone says that “See that famous person? Yeah, I’ve been with him.” But I guess insecurities are just normal, partly is was Justin’s fault he didn’t reassure enough, and gave up as well.
NEVERTHELESS. I enjoyed seeing them getting back together, and Amanda finally getting over her insecurities. It’s a fast, easy-on-the heart, fun, and sexy read.

Of course, I’m not going to shake Amanda’s hand.
Instead I grab hold of it, that unmistakable jolt of electricity sparking when our skin connects, just like every other time we’ve touched. I pull her to me and wrap her up in my arms because I can. I’m the one who offered up the tickets so I could…what? Show off? Let her know exactly how great my life is?
I can’t lie. My life is pretty damn great. I have everything I could ever want—except for one thing.
“Hi Jordan,” she breathes against my neck, and I swear she melts into me a little. Like she can’t help herself. Like we somehow still fit together even after all these years.
Either she got smaller or I grew bigger since the last time I touched her, and I’m guessing it’s the latter. She smells familiar, yet different. Better. I recognize the scent of her shampoo, but nothing else. Her hair is longer. Thick. Dark and wavy, up in a ponytail and a little disheveled, like she’s had a long day. Her body is curvier, something teenaged Amanda would’ve never believed could happen. She still has those sexy long legs, though.
Finally, she pulls away from me, her lips curled, her eyes sparkling, nervousness written all over her face, and I watch her carefully in return, my expression as neutral as I can make it. Honestly, I’m still a little pissed over that garbage game we just played, and I’m tense like I usually am after. Her understanding gaze meets mine and I know she knows what I’m feeling. We’ve always been in tune with each other…

She’s my Mandy, all grown up. But not my Mandy anymore.
