After nearly a year and a half of grieving the loss of her husband, 27-year-old Alexa Sullivan Tate is headed back to her hometown after a decade of being away. She has no idea her high school crush, Jace McAllister, the guy who stole her heart the same night that he broke it, is more than ready to pick up the pieces.
Jace has spent the last 10 years in the Army defusing bomb after bomb, trying to forget the girl who ignited all his passions. Little does he know that the spark still exists. Ten years ago they had smoldering chemistry, but the spark between them now might light a fuse that leads to an explosion even Jace can't stop. Not that he wants to. If only Alexa can get past her guilt and trust her heart again. But how do you put it all on the line when you've already lost everything once before?

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Second chance romance is one of my favorite tropes and I am so pleased with my first Tessa Teevan experience. The characters where likeable, the story was heartwarming, and the pacing felt appropriate. The man in military uniform was an added bonus that definitely tugged on my heart. Soldiers coming home from war is sure way to get my tearducts active!
The story is told in dual POV which further increased my enjoyment as I love getting inside the thoughts of both characters. I listened to this via audible and think the narrators did a great job with Alexa and Jase. Though this is a standalone, I am already looking into the next book in the series. (Fingers crossed it will be Knox's story.)
