Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Adriana Locke comes a witty romance about first love and second chances.

After being burned by her dream job in New York City, sports journalist Neely Kimber suddenly finds herself jobless and paying a long-overdue visit to her hometown in Tennessee. Her plan? Relax, reset, and head back up the corporate ladder. There’s just one unexpected step. Neely’s back in Dogwood Lane for barely a day when she sees the man she ran from nine years ago: the bad boy next door who was her first kiss, her first love, and her first heartbreak.

Devoted single dad Dane Madden knows he hurt Neely in the worst way. He’s got a lot to make up for. And as passionate as their reconnection is, it’s a lot to hope for. Having her back in his arms feels so right. But falling in love all over again with a woman who wants to live a world away is bound to go so wrong.

What’s it going to take for Neely to give him - and Dogwood Lane - just one more chance?

I took a little Tumble for Dane and Neely

Yes, I just fell hard for this book. Some could say I may have taken a little...tumble. Dane and Neely will have you cheering them on and wanting the best. And Dane? Dane. What can I say about Dane that hasn't already been said? He's fantastic. He's a single dad. He's fantastic. Swoony. Single. Sexy. Dad. That's almost all I needed to hear before my one-click finger got all twitchy.

This is another hit from Ms Locke and I cannot wait to read the next book.

And in case you don't want to read it, may I suggest the AUDIO??! Those southern accents are to die for. And that's coming from an actual southerner.

Hmmmmmm

I have to start out by saying the story is so very good. The review below is based off the actual book, not the audio version. Although I love this author, I did not care for the audio. In order for me to truly love the audio version of a story I have to connect with the Narrators, and this didn't happen for me. These voices and the connection of Neely and Dane just didn't click while listening to them. I feel horrible about that because I'm not sure I've ever ever given an audio rating for this author less than a 5. Just doesn't ever happen. Note that the story is worth it. I promise... So continue on with the review for the book part

This book gives us a new look at a whole new set of characters, which is awesome. But this also gives us a new series with a new background of issues and situations to build a series out of. I like this part of a new set of characters.

This story is full of regret, sadness, soulful love, and friendship. Dane and Neely have a past that is beautiful and painful. I cannot give away the reasoning for the distance between them, but Neely leaves Tennessee and moves to New York. She and Dane have their issues and do not speak for almost ten years. You know what they say about distance.... And it certainly affected these two. The chemistry is there, so you feel it, but because of the reason for the distance, you could feel the anxiousness sometimes as well. I think that was needed in this story, because we obviously are going to see more of these two in the next books that come... And their love needs to be real.

This book is a must read... One-click right now. I can't give anything away about what happens in the story, but there is an "occurrence or situation", and this is the reason I didn't give a 5 star. But I still loved the book. Must read/listen

Charming small town love story

I fell hard for this small town, second chance love story! Watching Dane & Neely rekindle their romance after a ten year separation was sweet & hot, their chemistry combustible and Danes devotion to his daughter downright swoon worthy. This heartwarming love story gave me all the feels and I hope there will be more in the series. Enjoyed the work of the narrators as well, both of them new to me.

Great small town romance

Dane and Neely's story was really a heartfelt small town romance. These two get a second chance at a love that they lost years before when Neely comes home for a few days. Things are the same yet different. These two get to know each other again and realize they still love each other.

This town has great characters that we have come to expect from Ms. Locke. The characters are well written and a close knit family group. I loved getting to know each of the characters and can't wait to get all of the different stories from this group. It was a great second chance romance. Of course Dane's daughter, Mia, stole the show. Well written and a great read.

The narration really enhanced the story.

Awesome second chance romance!

Neely Kimber is back home in Kentucky after quitting her lucrative NYC job. She just needs some time to regroup while she is job hunting. Of course returning home means finally facing her high school sweetheart...the one who broke her heart...the reason why she’s been gone for a decade.
Single father Dane Madden never really got over Neely. One indiscretion with Neely’s hs bff caused him to, not only break Neely’s heart, but his heart as well. Now she’s back and, even though he’s trying his best to resist, seeing Neely with his daughter is stirring up old feelings.
But at the end of the day, will Neely choose a NYC job over love...and will Dane let her walk away a second time?

Second chance romance

Many years ago our hero broke up with our heroine so she would leave their small town and go to college. Then in a drunken night he impregnates her best friend. Now years later she return home. Good romance.

Absolutely loved this book!!! 🌈🌈

Best HEA....😊😊😊
This was such a well written and funny story with excellent narration and great characters. I laughed out loud a lot and enjoyed this story so much. Mia the daughter was so sweet, sassy and adorable. And Hayley was hilarious. Now this is a book with characters you'll love. Fantastic.
Aiden and Summer did a super job of bringing the characters in this story to life and made this a fun and romantic listen. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
