Winter COYER/24 in 48 Read-a-thon
This summer, romance blooms again in Wildstone!
After a difficult few years, Tilly Adams is ready for life to start going right. Though she has a case of first day nerves teaching art at the local community college, she knows it isn’t anything a few snuggles from her rescue puppy won’t cure. Until she sees Dylan Scott again, her one time bff and first love sitting in the front row.
Dylan knows he should’ve left well enough alone, but when he sees Tilly living her dream, he can’t help but make contact. Ten years ago, he left Wildstone and everything in it behind, including Tilly. He had his reasons, but now he wants her back in his life, anyway he can get her.
When Tilly agrees to design the logo for Dylan’s new helicopter touring company, it’s business only…until she finds herself falling into his arms once again. Can she possibly open her heart back up to the only man who’s ever broken it? But soon they’re both realizing the truth -- love always deserves a second chance.
A great read because I really liked the heroine, which is rare for me reading contemporary romance. Shalvis really worked the second chance trope with flashbacks to the past but also clearly showed when she moved to the present tense in each chapter. I loved the quotes from the heroine's diary. There was humor but it wasn't slap stick and the angst came from the flashbacks, making the story seem very balanced. I want to read the other books in the series. Highly recommend!
