Publisher's Summary

Fans of Christina Lauren, Colleen Hoover, and Jill Santopolo will love this breathtaking story about first love, second chances, and starting over from New York Times best-selling author Corine Michaels.

Teagan Berkeley is trying her best. A single mom raising a precocious teen, she may have given up on her dreams, but she's accepted her life in her small beachside hometown. Now the one person who abandoned her when she needed him the most has returned, bringing back memories of what might have been.

Derek Hartz arrives in town with a teenage daughter - and he's full of guilt over his failed marriage and the way he ended his friendship with Teagan. He's determined to set things right with her, but first he needs to gain her trust, something he's not convinced he deserves.

As Teagan and Derek open up to each other - and confess their deepest secrets-it's impossible for them to deny what's always been between them. But just when their happily ever after is within reach, their complicated history surfaces again and threatens to keep them apart. Forever.

Another awesome book!

I’ve read every book written by Corinne. I can say I’ve again been pleasantly pleased. All the way through the characters had me rooting for them. Not overly happy but did have a nice ending.

Happily ever after...

Corinne wrote another heartwarming story that was a pleasure to listen to. She never disappoints. I can’t wait for her next one!!
This book was a lovely story about childhood best friends who have been in love with each other for years but never had their timing down...until now. Finally!
The narrators did an excellent job, as usual. Teddy and Savannah are always good.
This book was definitely worth a credit. I know I’ll be listening to it again.
And btw, for those who’ve read previous books, we get a little mention of Mark aka “Twilight”. Loved that. 💕

Fine but...

It wasn’t a bad book. The story was engaging enough and the characters interesting enough for me to not even question finishing (which TBH I can’t remember the last time I didn’t finish a book even if it made me cringe). This just was a simple love story. No real conflict, not much to make you think, just people trying to make a relationship work basically. The narrators were fine when reading their own parts, but I HATED when they read each other’s parts. She made him sound like an old man and he sounded more like he was making fun of her rather than actually trying to be her... just my two cents.... like I said, it wasn’t bad, just not all that great.

So disappointing!

I never thought I would be that person to say this, but I do NOT understand how this has so many good reviews! I absolutely love Corinne Michaels and I have read and/or listened to every single book she's written and they are all fantastic. Except this one.


SPOILERS: Teagan was so whiney and "poor me" I almost stopped listening 30 minutes in. Every other female character in Corinne Michaels' books have been strong and independent and fierce. Teagan just seemed so weak and took on the victim role, which I am not a fan of. I thought I would love this book since the whole "friends to lovers" scenario was somewhat similar to my own. However, the fact that she didn't have the courage to tell Derek how she felt before he got married was weak. The fact that she didn't fight for him when he said he never wanted to speak to her again was weak. The way that she let Keith dictate her relationship with Chastity (terrible name) was weak. I would never want my parents or town to see a sex tape of me, but I would also never let that rule my life. The way all she did was complain about being stuck in a small town living in her parents' small studio and working for her parents' store was weak. The way she got angry at Chastity for sharing her paintings on social media was unbelievable. And her wanting to end things with the "man of her dreams" because she would have to leave him to move from Virginia to Florida for a year was just dumb. I'm sorry. Corinne's first stories we're about men in the army who left thier significant others for long periods of time! Hell I moved away from my husband for 4 years to attend graduate school and we survived, along with many other couples I know. If someone is truly your soul mate, being a few hours apart and living separate for a year is not a deal breaker. I just expected a lot more considering how much I loved Corinne's other books. I would not recommend this book at all.

Weak Heroin

Maybe this just wasn't my cup of tea because I enjoy a strong heroin. The heroin in this story was so weak and it annoyed me pretty much 90% of the book.

This book is everything

Teagan and Derrick took me to high school friends and love. This book is so relatable that I absolutely couldn't put it down and never wanted it to end. This book is masterfully written, with all the feels.

Beautiful second chance romance

Such great writing from Corinne Michaels. Not that I’m surprised by the writing I’ve read several of Corinne Michaels books. She is one of my very favorites & is very talented.
Teegan is such a strong women! I was brought up by a single Mom & could relate. Teegan & Derek getting their second chance was wonderful. All the relationships in the story written with depth & built so great! I thoroughly enjoyed every moment.
Of course I adore Savannah Peachwood & Teddy Hamilton they too are some of my favorite narrators. Well done Savannah & Teddy!
