In just twenty-seven short years, Alexa Sullivan Tate has already lost the two great loves of her life. One to the Army; the other in a tragic car accident. Two years after the latter, a ghost from the past reappears, igniting feelings in Alexa she’d thought long dormant.
Jace McAllister has spent the last ten years in the Army, defusing bomb after bomb, trying to forget the girl who once set his world on fire. For him, she’s always been the one who got away. After a not-so-chance encounter places her back in his line of sight, he’s locked eyes on target, and won’t let her go without a fight.
Ten years ago their chemistry smoldered, and now the sparks threaten to light a fuse leading to an explosion between them even Jace can’t control. Not that he wants to. But when love has slipped through your fingertips before, how can you trust it will once again remain?
Will Alexa’s fear of love and loss destroy their second chance at a beautiful future before it can even begin
I found a new favorite author and her name is Tessa Teevan. She is able to tell a heartwarming story that is infused with laugh-out-loud moments leaving you wanting more. The interaction between the characters had me crying happy and sad tears. I couldn't get enough of them. Especially Ava. Oh God!
I am a fan of second chance love stories especially ones that span over a long period of time. I like to see how they can reconcile their past decisions to make it work for them today. Jace and Lexi's story was equal parts suffering and redemption. I liked that this story wasn't filled with a lot of drama; there wasn't suffering at every turn. That the bumps they ran into on their journey to forever was experienced and worked through together. For me, it made this book a quick enjoyable read. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
