About the Author
The story goes like this while on pregnancy bed rest, Lauren Dane had plenty of down time so her husband took her comments about giving that writing thing a serious go to heart and brought home a secondhand laptop. She wrote her first book on it before it gave up the ghost. Even better, she sold that book and never looked back.
Today Lauren is a New York Times bestselling author of over forty novels and novellas across several genres. Though she no longer has to deal with Polly Pocket and getting those tiny outfits on and off, she still has trouble blocking out the sound of iCarly so she can write a love scene.

One thing I have to say about ALL of Lauren Dane's books is I LOVE her sense of family, the way they all interact, BUT MOST OF ALL I LOVE that her books are super sexy and erotic, but they have H/h who love kink and also have family values =)
Nathan is such a sweet, sexy Alpha. He knows he hurt Lily years ago and regrets it. Upon seeing her for the first time in years he realizes he is still in love with her and makes up his mind to win Lilly back and has no qualms using all his Murphy siblings and the Chase brothers and their wives. Lilly is trying to save her 15 year old brother from going down the wrong path, her mother from falling into an even deeper state of depression and alcoholism, deal with her dad who left her mother for "teenage barbie" and Nancy, Lilly's evil, jealous petty sister. Add to that stress is the fact that Nathan refuses to let her ignore him and their chemistry, which means she has to deal with the hurt and heartbreak he inflicted on her years ago.
Nathan's pursuit and determination to win Lilly back is one of the hottest "wooing" stories I've read in a while, maybe the hottest contemporary "non-erotic" story I've read ever.
I enjoyed seeing the couples and Polly and Edward from Lauren Dane's, Chase Brothers series. I love Petal GA....hmmm wondering if there are any jobs there ;-)
Note: I wouldn't say you have to read the Chase Brothers' series first, but to get a full understanding of the secondary characters in the Petal GA series, you will want to read it if not before, then after you read Once and Again.

My thoughts - It's definitely a classic Lauren Dane book, you can tell that from the 12 page (I kinda exagerated) conversations and the 'problems' that need to be resolved (if you have read other LD books you know what I mean). But all in all is was a good story. I love how her charaters are always believable even if they do talk too much and she always has a real issue her characters have to deal with. It was nice to get updates on the Chase family too (I'm a big Chase fan), they all seem to be doing great! Even with my complaints on a little too much dialogue, I'm still looking forward to the next book in this series and in her others as well!'

This story didn't have a lot of kick to it so far as suspense or a mystery, and that was ok. If you have read the Chase Brothers series you will be able to appreciate this book more. It's very heart felt and family oriented, and in those two families they love
Fiercely and definitely have a lot of great sex. Introducing Nathan and Lily to that dynamic definitely makes for a juicy story.
Get this book and enjoy also the Chase Brothers Series they've connected to this story line ad well as Lost in You.
I enjoyed reading Once again. She brought the reader back to Petal, GA to enjoy a story with other characters from her previous series The Chase Brothers. Which was a plus. The story was great, but I kept waiting for something. Like her others series, that left you on the "Oh, my God. What is going to happen next to that poor character." moments. I didn't find the excitement as I did with her others.
Over all I enjoyed the laid backness of the book, even though it left you knowing what was going to happen next throughout the whole book. I am a advent reader of Ms. Lauren Dane and will continue to read everything she creates!
