Publisher's Summary

Wes 

When I was a kid, my dad was the gardener for the richest man in town. His daughter, Lily Barnes, told me she could never like a guy like me. Then she kissed me and told me it would never happen again. When it happened again, she told me she could never love me because she was going to leave this place, and I would never leave my dad. 

We were never quite friends, not exactly enemies, and we could never quite stop secretly kissing each other. 

She never said goodbye before running off to try to make it as an actress. That was her dream, and I wanted her to chase it. Okay, maybe I hated her for it, just a little. 

Now she’s back, with no money and even more sass.

A lot has changed around here...except for my hidden feelings about Lily Barnes. 

Lily 

So, it turns out I’m a terrible actress and now I’m back! 

When my father offers me a job at his company, I actually think he’s finally decided I’m worthy of one day taking over the family business. Imagine my surprise when I find out that the gardener’s son is the one who’s being groomed to take over, and I’ve been assigned to work for him. 

Wes Carver has always been rich in confidence and abs, but now he’s rich in everything, including disdain for yours truly. 

If he thinks I’m not built to work, he’s wrong. 

If he thinks he can boss me around just because he’s my boss, he’s delusional. 

If he thinks I’m still the girl who could never love him...I may be a better actress than anyone thought.

Fabulous Story & Narration🎧 Swoon-worthy Wes💘Lily!

I adored this fabulous story, Kayley Loring is a master at writing heartfelt romance novels that are captivating from start to end. She creates interesting storylines and characters that are realistic and likable, they are ones you can relate to and empathize with what they are going thru. Lily Barnes wanted to become an actress, she left home after H.S to pursue a career in theatre. It did not work out for her and she decides to head home and work at her father’s company, she needed the money, and she needed to work at least a year gain access to her trust fund. Her father never supported her career choice and wanted her to work for the company. He gives her a job as Wes’s assistant, Wes, the son of her father’s grounds keeper, the boy she had a crush on. Wes is such a great guy, he has been in love with Lily since she was a teenager and he planned to keep his relationship professional but not everything goes as planned. I thought these two were great together and for each other. He was patient with her, he knew she needed for find herself and what she wanted in life. It was great to see Lily come into her own, loved how she finally fessed up about how she felt, also loved how she stood up to her father. This story is filled with love, emotions, some good laughs, drama, a touch of angst and some hot romance. And the ending will put a smile on your face. Kayley Loring, thank you for another fabulous story.

I listened to the Audible edition, Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright are wonderful narrators and voice performers. They bring these characters to life, give each their own voice and personality. You can hear how much heart they put into their performance as they project the emotions of the characters. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another fabulous listen 🎧

A fantastic page-turner

Kayley Loring has quickly become one of my must read authors as I've come to enjoy all her books and Back For More was another fantastic page-turner. This sweet yet emotional love story had me hooked from beginning to end and I enjoyed every moment of it. This novel included first love, enemies to lovers, office romance and second chance tropes all into one amazing story and I could not put it down. I loved Wes and Lily. Their chemistry was intense, their steamy scenes were hott but it was their banter had me really amused. Back For More was a fantastic read and I would highly recommend it to all romance lovers.
I listened to the audible version of this novel and I absolutely loved it. Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright were amazing together. Their narration were perfect and they brought the story to life. Their pace and timing was excellent and they were easily able to portray the emotions of the characters. I really love their voices and it was a pleasure listening to them narrate this story.

First love and dreams

Loved it! Kayley writes like she know some bits here and there from your own life. Her style of writing takes you on a journey through relatable characters lives with her instinctive scene building and character development. You'll feel like you know these characters personally. Be sure to keep listening through the epilogues!

Cute Romance with a little bit of everything

I am becoming a big fan of Kayley Loring this year! Back for More is a great romance that has a little of everything, second chance romance, enemies to lovers, workplace romance and forbidden romance. Both the main characters surprised me a lot and I didn't harbor any secret hatred toward either of them. Lily was full of sass and has been in a love hate relationship with the gardeners son, Wes, since she was 14... she always planned on leaving home when she was old enough so it was a constant battle to stay away from Wes. I love that she was mature enough at that age to know she didn't want to get tied to the town by him. Wes Wes Wes, what can I say beside the fact that he was perfection as a book boyfriend! He always knew Lily was the love of his life and he was just waiting for her to experience her life and then come back to him. There is something very refreshing about a man who waits for his love to come back home, without whoring around in his free time (even if its maybe unrealistic)!

As always Teddy Hamilton and MacKenzie Cartwright did an amazing job narrating and bringing all the characters to life!

Back for More

Second chances for everyone. Starting over is hard even if it is back home. Having to confront your your teenage crush being your boss, your stand-off parent and friends left behind can be overwhelming. Enjoyed how this story came together.

Cute Love Story with a Complete Ending

Love this book and appreciate that it is a complete high school sweetheart with angst, love, and second chances that also includes coming full circle! Kayley did a wonderful job including details without dragging the book out! We’d and Lily have the perfect romance in school, she wants to venture out after heartbreak of loosing a parent and feeling lost! I love that Wes understands and lets her back in without being such a drama king... they reconnect and complete the story! Narration was spot on with bringing the characters more realistic!

Loved It!

Wes and Lily's story is about a second chance at love. This was about a girl who left her privileged life and the boy she loved to try to make it on her own. When she has to return home for help from a father that dosen't really know her and work for the man she has always been in love with. Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright was awesome and loved their work. This is a must have in your library.

First loves and second chances

I cannot get enough of Kayley Loring! Every book I listen to of hers finds a place in my heart. Back for Me is a story of first loves, coming home, and second chances. Lily leaves to go chase her dream of becoming an actress. When things don't go quite as she planned, she comes home to take a job in her family business. Little does she know that her father has her working under her first love. Wes, the gardener's son is now her boss and the chemistry is still there. But can these two work together? I love this low angst, yet compelling story. It is lets us live real life relationships and see who they work through them. Second chances don't always come along, so this first love and family time is crucial. I love how Loring brings it all together. Her writing is always easy to listen to, has such a good story and leaves me with a smile. She creates incredible characters I can easily picture and really love her style.

Loring also chooses amazing narrators for her stories. Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright are the consummate team for this narration. Each brings a manner that gives the feeling that you know the character, they are a friend of yours. Hamilton's conversational style always makes me so happy and comfortable and I know he really brings the disposition of the characters out. Cartwright finds the core of the heroine and brings her out in a way I can connect with. They are an amazing team.

4.5 Truly Sweet Stars

What a wonderful, sweet, easy love story. Is it second chance? Quite possibly, yes. Are the main characters truly adorable, sweet and sexy? Most definitely. I actually believe that Lily Barnes and Wes Carver were made for each other, a match made in heaven so to speak, and yes, in the first few chapters I was thinking that Lily might be a bit of a biatch, but when all was said and done, I could relate, and I was rooting for a lasting relationship between them. Wes was a true gentleman throughout and, if I may say so myself, a perfect book boyfriend (all mine). A wonderful, angst free read, with great characters throughout. Audible narrated to complete and utter perfection by Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright.

Amazing narration and sweet, low angst story

I loved this book because it was more than a romance. Oh, it was that- Wes and Lily have a second chance to be together and they were adorable together- witty, humorous banter, love, loyalty, unwavering support (with a great side of steam). Their relationship, after the initial issues with forgiveness, was low angst; get ready to smile.

But beyond that, were the family dynamics- both had issues with parents and it was wonderful to see them as a team navigating through those familial issues, supporting each other with love and loyalty. This was a feel good story, with a great supporting cast.

As for the narration, I would likely listen to anything Teddy Hamilton reads because he has such an amazing range (men, women, children), great ability to infuse emotion into his reading and really, I loved his spoken French (ha, only a few phrases but it's enough, sigh). Mackenzie Cartwright had a perfect voice for Lily and again, had great range, pacing and emotion. All in all, an excellent listen.
