Summary (cr: goodreads)

A second shot at first love

After college, Ryan Kowalski decided to leave Whitford, Maine, rather than watch Lauren Carpenter marry another man. Now his siblings need his help to refurbish the family-owned Northern Star Lodge and he’s forced to face the past sooner rather than later when he collars a vandal—and learns the boy is Lauren’s son…

The last person Lauren needs back in her life is Ryan Kowalski. With a bitter ex-husband and a moody teenage son, she has enough man trouble already. But her son needs to learn a few lessons about right and wrong, even if Lauren has to escort him to Ryan’s door every day to work off his crime.

With all this close contact, Ryan and Lauren can’t deny the chemistry between them is as powerful as ever. But can a few searing kisses erase their past and pave the way for a second chance at true love?

My Review: (also in goodreads)

Lookback: Exclusively Yours, Undeniably Yours, Yours To Keep, All He Ever Needed

I guess it was bound to happen. When someone committed something to his family, especially if it was in the hometown, one would face the ghosts of the past. Ryan who wanted to restore the family business was staying at the lodge and there he finally once again saw someone he loved, the person who was once his former best friend's ex-wife; the person he wanted to save but refused. And with some kind of twisted fate, her son is now working for him, meaning that he would once encounter his former best friend. What he had was maybe a broken heart but for me it was more of a bruised ego. The story was okay and I did like the part where they were at the crossroads whether or not to repeat history or change what was about to happen.

Till the next read...
