Blurb: From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Nicole Williams:
He wants a second chance with his first love.
Before he was writing chart-topping hits and smashing record sales, Chase Lawson was Emma’s childhood friend and first love. They promised each other forever, but forever expired at eighteen, when he landed a major record deal and left Emma and their hometown behind.
Ten years later, he shows up at their high school reunion with a proposition she can’t refuse. Six months. Seven figures. He gets a chance to clean up his reputation, and she gets the means to restore the old family farmhouse. It’s only for show—hold hands in public, kiss for the cameras—but boundaries blur behind closed doors.
It isn’t long before Emma feels her resolve slipping, crushed by the shadow of the boy she grew to love in the man selling out stadiums of present. Can Emma resist one of the most irresistible bachelors in the world? Or will she fall for the same man twice?
My 4.5 Star Review
Let me gush first! Chase Lawson. He has a gift of making you swoon. And sigh. And swoon some more! His words will have you falling at his feet! I was a goner!! I mean if I was Emma, I’d have been all “I want to have your babies!!!” His words will just melt your heart!
I do want to spend a little time talking up Emma, too. Emma is a unique character, and she’s one I aspire to be. She lets all the ugly just roll right off of her. She doesn’t let people get to her. And she’s good at being nice to those that quite frankly aren’t nice to her. She’s genuine and small town.
Now while Chase is incredibly swoon worthy, there’s still some drama in this story that left me feeling full of dread – like full-scale freak out! This book is full of FEELS!! I laughed, I swooned, and I smooth flipped out!
This book is perfect for those of you that love second chance romances, or those of you that have a thing for country music stars. If it hadn’t been for a few editing changes I would have made, I would have given this one 5 stars.
