Weston Kincaid was my first…everything.
My brother’s best friend should have come with a warning label.
The man was a cautionary tale and we were the ill-fated cliché. The star quarterback to my loner art geek.
But I didn’t listen. Not to the warnings. Not to my instincts.
I fell, and I fell hard.
Then he left and I was forced to pick up the pieces of my broken heart.
A decade and a lifetime later, he’s back.
Only instead of being the star jock, he’s now a surgeon.
A sexy, irresistible surgeon who happens to save my friend’s life. As if all that isn’t bad enough, he has it in his determined, arrogant head that we should pick up where we left off all those years ago.
But this time, it’ll take more than devouring looks and the rush of his touch to temp me back into his bed.
And my heart? Not an option.
He’s about to figure out, I’m not the same girl he left behind.
I received an ARC of this book and this is my honest review!
Nothing pulls on your heart strings like a beautiful second chance romance. They always say that you never get over your first love. Well, for Aria and Wes, fate has their paths cross again and they were given a second chance.
“But every now and then, during some particularly dark moments or late nights, I’d relive our time together. I’d smile, wondering about the girl life seemed to enjoy keeping away from me.”
I loved how this book went back and forth between the past and the present. With every new look we got into Aria and Wes’s past, you can feel the words tugging on your heart as you come to realize the pain that these characters felt during their years of being apart. Their story was beautiful, it was real, and it was amazing.
Quick side note- that drawing scene? Holy hell! Talk about hot beyond belief. I literally needed to fan myself because that was one steamy scene!
And that epilogue though! That was pure magic. Truly. I honestly couldn’t have imagined it ending better than that, I was full on crying happy tears by the time it said “The End”.
This is a wonderful book that is sure to tug on your heart strings, maybe even make you remember your own first love, and it will surely make you fall in love with Aria and Wes’s story. It certainly did for me.
