From New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes a new second chance standalone love story.

At eighteen, I walked away from Willow Creek Valley for good.

I was young, scared, and stupid, and it cost me the love of my life—Grayson Parkerson.

Fourteen years later, a crash sends me back home to recover.

Back to where we met, fell in love, and planned a future.

The one he’s now living as a single dad to his daughter.

Working at The Park Inn together gives us a chance to reconnect, and seeing him with his little girl makes me long for the days when he was mine. One look in his gorgeous blue-green eyes, and it’s like I never left. One kiss, and my world is upside down. One night together, and I know without a doubt, in his arms is where I belong.

I’m not the girl I was—intimidated by his wealthy family and desperate to escape our small town. I can imagine a new life for us here.

But he’s learned to guard his heart, and trust won’t come easily.

How can I convince him to give first love a second chance?

My Review...

Wow, what a fantastic start to a new series by Corrine Michaels.

This is the story of Grayson and Jessica. Young love that should have lasted forever but family problems and prejudices separate them for years.

When a life changing accident happens, Jessica is forced to go home to Willow Creek to heal and recuperate. She broke Grayson’s heart years ago and hopes that she doesn’t run into him again. But fate has other plans.

I would like to commend Ms. Micheals for her honest and real description of the trauma that Jessica goes through. Having a loved one with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) it was a relief to see it written with so honorably. What Jessica goes through is exactly what my loved one does and I was able to sympathize so much with Jessica’s character.

The sparks continue to fly as hot and heavy as they did when they were kids. But with age and life lessons, both Grayson and Jessica have some scars that still need healing and a trust that has to be rebuilt. Their relationship evolved beautifully even with some obstacles in the way.

I love how some of the Arrowwood family makes a small appearance in this story to really bring the reader in!

I cannot wait for Jack and Stella’s story next!
