Publisher's Summary

Former NHL star Jaxson Lund has returned to the Twin Cities, but he's at loose ends, unsure if he belongs at Lund Industries or where he stands with Lucy, his ex-girlfriend and mother of his daughter, Mimi. Despite the signs she'd like to leave him in the penalty box, the attraction burning between them reinforces his determination to prove that he deserves a second chance....

Lucy Quade is in a good place with a steady job, a nice apartment, and a well-adjusted daughter, which is why she's hesitant when Jax insists on co-parenting. It's not that Lucy doesn't trust Jax...she's just unconvinced he can handle multiple responsibilities when he's been singularly focused on playing hockey. But when issues arise with Mimi, Lucy's shocked at how levelheaded and paternal he acts, giving her a glimpse of the Jax she used to know, the sexy, sweet man she fell for years ago.  

Once Lucy lets her guard down, Jax goes all in to show her how good they are together, but will their past remain too large an obstacle to ever overcome?  

Contains mature themes.

This book!!!

If there is one book you want to download this year, this is it. A hardcore, tear at your heartstrings, story of redemption & second chances. Granted their is some cheating involved, but it was primarily caused but another overlineing reason. You will come to love these characters even with their flaws. One of LJ’s best to date.

Second chance worth the read

The narrators were excellent that you could get lost in the story. The story will suck you in as you are find that you are cheering for Lucy & Jaxson to get back together. Such a great story.

I want you back by Lorelei James was truly a heart tugging love story. True love at its finest. I definitely recommend this book.

Good story, mediocre narration

Another Lund cousin story. Sadly each new story does not start where the last book ends so we missed the story of Anneka’s wedding that could have been incorporated into the beginning of this one easily. We narrative was a bit long for Jaxson and Lucy’s story but tugged at the heartstrings. He was such a jerk but She also had some issues- though not nearly as bad as his. His maturity and forgiveness needed to be earned and so the story was very touching. Mimi was a bit of a brat but also very real. The narration was disappointing and distracting. Kristen James male voice was mumbling and unclear. Troy Duran’s voice for Lucy was stilted and there was not enough distinction with the brother and cousins. I loved the scene where he blew off steam on the ice and maybe we will see more of that in his brother’s story.

Mixed feelings

I had mixed feelings on reviewing this story. After three hours into the story, I felt so bored with it. At times, I was confused with the past and present. I love second chance but I had a hard time liking this one. I also love strong heroine who doesn't take crap from the hero. However this heroine basically was like a doormat. I used my credit but will return it. I couldn’t finish this story.

Boring

Could’ve been a great story but the characters were boring and the story was more about how they were going to collaborate and raise their daughter. The big monkey wrench (spoiler alert) was that he was moving. Just happened to be closer to her and the child. BORING. Lorelei has written better

Enjoyable story

Recently introduced to this author with the "I Need You" series. This is the story of another Lund cousin and overall was quite good. I only wished they used the narrator's from the first series. They did a much better job especially when switching between Female/Male voices. Although an annoyance, I am still looking forward to the next book in the series.
