I was given a copy of this book but this is a true and honest review
This second chance romance is very sweet, romantically, and a steamy read. Ivy moved to the big city when she lost her virginity to her then boyfriend Cooper and he up and left for college straight after, making her think what they had wasn’t special. Now she’s “living” the dream, but it’s not all it’s cracked up to be and sooner rather than later events take a turn for the worse and she flees......straight back to her hometown....and Cooper❣️
I really did enjoy this story, however, I rated it a little lower purely for the frustration factor that I felt a few times with Ivy. I adored Cooper for the wonderful character that he is and his enduring patience with Ivy.

This is a hot, steamy second chance read. Ivy is not in a forgiving mood when she returns to her home town escaping from an abusive relationship. Unfortunately the only job she finds is that of a barmaid at Coopers bar. They were once an item but he left her & let's say, while they still have a spark, she's reluctant to act on it. But when she does I think they spend more time in bed than elsewhere lol ! Cooper regrets his past & tries to make amends many, many times. He sure has his work cut out for him getting into Ivy's good books again. When her past catches up with her he comes to her aid. This is a little bit predictable but overall a decent read,

Cooper and Ivy get there second chance after years apart due to Ivy returning home from her abusive ex. Cooper has always loved Ivy and when she walked into his bar looking for a job he thought all his Christmases had come at once. Cooper vowed to protect her when her excellent shows up. A brilliantly written story with excellent characters and a happy ending guaranteed.
What a absolutely fantastic book !! This book makes me think of my first love and I wonder if it would’ve worked ! Ivy (Jo) has returned home to Springston after her time in New York. Cooper owns a bar in Springston and is waiting for his first love Jo (Ivy) to come back home. This is a must read. I received a free copy of this book through booksprout for an honest review.
