Publisher's Summary

Lauren:

Running into an ex you haven't seen in nearly a decade is never a good time. Running into your ex while he's arresting you is humiliating. The handcuffs close around my fists at the same time he promises to hate me until he takes his last breath. I can't blame him. He pleaded for me not to walk away. He doesn't know leaving him broke my heart as much as it did his. It wasn't for me. Rather, it was for someone else. 

Gage:

I skipped town after Hurricane Lauren obliterated my heart. Coming home was a hard choice to make. Arresting her isn't. She has no idea of the demons I carry with me now. No idea that I'm a new man. Two women ruined me. One I gave my heart to. The other punished me for it. 

Contains mature themes.

Immature and packed with unnecessary angst

This book was immature, unrealistic, and packed with unnecessary angst. The couple were high school sweethearts separated for a decade and found their way back to each other. The reason they separated and why they didn’t speak for 10 years was stupid!

Spoiler alert!!! (Stop here to avoid it, read on to save yourself a credit)

Gage’s father asked Lauren to break up with him to prevent Gage from running off with her to college. Gage left anyway never to return until now, and his dad ended up getting what he was trying to avoid. This supposedly was the catalyst of a series of horrible events in Gage life (insert eye roll).

My problem with this storyline is, why did it take years for the dad to disclose this when his plan failed from jump!?. Secondly, why did Lauren keep this secret talking about “not my story to tell” stupid girl, it was your story! SMH.

Honestly, the author didn’t even try with this one.

Great story

I really enjoyed this book. I wish there was more of the male narrator. He’s one of my favorites. The female narrator is too robotic

Overall no good

This book feels like it was written by a kid, the on and off again with the untold history is just not much fun to hear. The voice actors match the book, hard to explain but no good

Rough times, joyful time

The emotional feelings you can feel through the reader. Great job!! Gage and Lauren exes who learn how to work through problems to come back together. This story will make you cry. Grab tissues. The crap each go through to come back together is heartbreaking. Highly recommended for mature audiences

Second Chance Romance

Second Chance Romances are my jam!! True love always wins out in the end. Lauren and Gage’s story is no exception. Their story is a sad one, it broke my heart. Have some tissues ready, you’re going to need them.

Lauren is a nurse at the hospital. She has a huge heart when it comes to helping other people. That doesn’t extend to dating, not that she has time for it anyways. She gave her heart away years ago and never got it back.

Gage is a Police Officer and he has just transferred back to the little town of Blue Beech. He hasn’t been back since Lauren broke his heart. He is determined to hate her, while trying to outrun the life he had been living.

The chemistry between these two is electrifying. Their story is one of love, heartbreak, loss, hate and love again. My heart broke for Gage, I’m still not sure it’s healed...although Lauren sure does help with that 😉

Samantha Cook and Aaron Shedlock do a freaking amazing job bringing Gage and Lauren to life. I could feel all the emotions!

LOVED THIS!!!

I first ended up in Blue Beach with the third book in the series, Just Neighbors... and immediately needed another fix. These were two of the side characters in that book so they seemed like the obvious place to start.

It did not disappoint.
