Friends from the day they met, Kingston and Stella shared an immediate bond. But, years later when Stella becomes caught between best friends Kingston and Owen and their former friendship is torn apart, Stella runs and doesn’t look back.
It’s now 8 years later, and Stella is back in Lake Starlight to help her mom . . . and once again, finds herself caught between Kingston and one of his friends.
Can King and Stella be only friends? Can they be more? Should the try to be either? They have so much baggage and seem to come from different life philosophies. King is an adrenaline junkie and Stella is terrified of losing the person she loves too early. Can he give up his adventurous ways? Will she let fear rule her life?
Piper Rayne knocked it out of the park with this second chance love story! I loved seeing all of the glimpses into King and Stella’s past to give insight into their personalities. I adored watching them compromise to try and find a future together and to take a chance at a relationship to re-evaluate what really matters in life.
And for series fans, all I have to say is Sedona! This author duo just dropped a bomb on this Baily sibling and I cannot wait! 5 stars!
Imagine lying in a hospital bed and the doctor who pulls the curtain back to treat you is the one who got away. Even if you never really had her in the first place. She’s not only your high school crush, she’s the ex-girlfriend of your ex-best friend. The one girl you’ve always wanted.
Here’s a step-by-step list to finally win her over…
Key to win #1: Try not to take offense that she snuck back into town without telling you—six months ago.
Key to win #2: Rekindle the friendship to ease the awkwardness. But… DO NOT enter the friend zone.
Key to win #3: Ignore the fact that she went speed dating the night before. Take it as good a sign—maybe she’s looking for a relationship.
Key to win #4: Attempt to keep the two of you out of the town gossip blog and away from your large family.
Make sure you don’t let this last one throw you off your mission.
Key to win #5: Don’t get deterred when you find out the past is about to repeat itself. Because the man she met at the speed dating night is your best buddy from work.
Just remember, you sat back and let her slip away once, you won’t do it a second time. Failure is not an option.
