Product Description

'That special someone can walk in and out of your life, yet leave a permanent mark that lasts a lifetime...'

~ Since You've Been Gone ~

Lucy Love always wanted to travel and explore the world before being forced to grow up and act like an adult in the big bad world laid out before her.

Deciding to stick to her dreams, she ensues on a summer of a lifetime, making memories, having fun and falling in love for the very first time.

Like most things in life, all good things must come to an end, but will she be able to move past her broken heart and love again, or is that perfect summer destined to haunt her once again?

Now, ten years on Lucy has a budding career and the best family and friends that a girl could wish for, but after many failed relationships what's in store for her love life?

Is fate destined to bring Lucy and her one true love back together, or is it just an evil way of life, destined to break her heart once again?

This is such a sweet, loving story of boy meets girl but that doesn’t mean the relationship runs smoothly!!

Lucy goes to work in Spain for the summer season and leaves her best friend Hannah at home. This is where she meets Jake. Their first meeting is not the best of ways to meet as she's out for her birthday and she pukes all over him but don't remember it until her flat mate makes her go out again the next night to face her fears...she sees him again and the chemistry is instant. The book starts in the present where she is maid of honour at Hannah's wedding then it goes back and tells a beautiful love story which ends in the present.

I loved this short story. The author’s words run so smoothly and I was hooked straight away. I read it in one sitting. This book has a feel good factor and I understood where the author went with the storyline but hope we haven't heard the last of Lucy and Jake. I've not read anything by this lady before but I certainly will be in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sweet read! 12 October 2016
By Books Laid Bare - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
There was a lot packed between the covers of this book, if the author was planning on giving my emotions and work out…she nailed it.
Most of the story was retrospective, looking back at past events, events that had left them both feeling cheated almost. The author did a great job of laying out their time together from their less than stellar start, through the glory of getting to know each other, right up until it all fell apart.
Their time is Spain was short but that didn’t mean it was insignificant and throughout the story we got to see what it meant to both of them, they worked well as a couple and it was fun watching them get to know each other back then.
But now we were a decade on, a lot older and wiser and the question was …what now?
I liked the look at what they had, had previously and what they had now, I just think I missed a bit by not knowing enough about what had happened to the pair of them in between.
Why had their never been the occasion for them to catch up with each other until now because I am certain that in Lucy’s imagination she never thought that her first sight of him after 10 years would be at her friend’s wedding!
While I think Jake and Lucy were a super couple and but I can’t say the same for some of the other characters. Most of them were ok but I really didn’t like Fran, actually I had to actively stop myself from skimming through paragraphs that she was in, she really grated on my very last nerve! Although I did love Hannah.
I’m not sure what the authors plans are for this pair but I think I might like to see where they go from here.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great second chance romance 9 October 2016
By MAustin - Published on Amazon.com

Since you’ve been gone was a great 4 star read.

We start out in the beginning with Lucy at her best friend Hannah’s wedding, when she sees a certain someone she is in shock. Why is he here?
We jump back 10 years to Lucy in Spain working for the summer. The first time that Lucy meets Jake is not the most pleasant of experiences. I enjoyed watching these two get to know each other, Lucy opened up more and more to him. You could feel the connection they had. Could he be the one?

If I thought I was scared before, it’s got nothing on how I’m feeling with him looking at me like that.

Something happens that causes Lucy to run. Which totally blew my mind. This story was great, although I think I would have liked a little more of a look into their lives the 10 years they were apart. Why did it take 10 years to find her?
The secondary characters added a great element to the story. Fran was not my most favorite of people, she seemed to always put herself first no matter what. Did she even care about Lucy?
I would like to see more from these two, I want to know where they go from here. Do they truly get their HEA? I need more from Lucy and Jake. Thank you S.M. Phillips for the great read.
4.0 out of 5 stars There is always a better way to show and say how you feel with ... 15 October 2016
By Kandy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I do want to start out saying that there are a few typos, not a big issue to me, I don't read a story to tear apart the grammar, I read it for the actual story. Also I will say I had to read a few parts over because of the different words she uses, as we live in different parts of the universe, it sometimes took me a minute, but I figured it out.

This book was really something I think I needed to read at the time I read it. I have been struggling with emotions, second chances, thoughtfulness and she kind of in a round about way showed me a different way to think about things. There is always a better way to show and say how you feel with out freaking out and running away. With that said, I can't say that if facing the same situation, I would have done a better job.

S. M. has done a remarkable job keeping me interested in the book, it read quicker once I got into the thick if it (sometimes takes me a bit for all reads). Again some grammar errors, misspelled words, but nothing I couldn't easily figure out on my own, just got missed is all.

I hope to see more for Luce and Jake. Maybe Hanna and Daniel, too...
