He’s already lost her once and he won’t lose her again.
They come from two different worlds that are threatening to tear them apart…can they make it this time around?
****This book was part of a blog tour I was given an ARC and based my review on content only****
Four years ago Jake broke Nora’s heart with no explanation; he never showed up for their last date and never called. Nora went off to college in New York and is now back in her home town for her best friends wedding. When they see each other again all their feelings come rushing back, the two of them start dating again. However, the reasons that Jake never showed up are still between them and telling Nora could devastate her. Can Nora and Jake get over their past, can they make a future or will they be torn apart again? This book was good it's one of those second chance summer romance books, it's very sweet with some steamy love scenes thrown in that spice things up a bit. Jake was a reformed "bad boy" in his youth he was a player and did stupid things, but when he met Nora that all changed. When Nora left for college he decided he wanted to be the type of man she deserved and took steps to do that. Nora had a tendency to bug me at times; she was strong with everyone but her parents. She was indecisive at times and that got on my nerves, which is why I gave this book a 3 1/2 instead of a 4 star rating. This Time Around is a good beach read; it’s not very long, the story is very cute and you get a HEA.
