2nd chance romance stories are my favorite and this was a good romance read. This is really about 1st loves and then 2nd chances.
Bran was a high school football star and Cecily was an artist. They were in love and they married young. and divorced less than a year later. It’s what killed the marriage that was unfortunate. It wasn’t anything that they couldn’t overcome but they were too young and circumstances broke them apart. Their breakup tears Cecily apart and picks herself up and starts over. She doesn’t know what else to do. Branson is destroyed, but enlists in the army to get away and start fresh. Neither are happy and neither finds peace being away from one other.
Seven years later, they are back together at same college where Branson is determined to win back his first love Cecily. He realized he made a mistake when their marriage ended and he wants her back in her life. She doesn’t know if she should give their love another chance.
This is a good and sweet 2nd chance romance about young love , small town romance story that shows how distance can make the heart realize who and what is important. There is a lot of angst, sadness, but there is also forgiveness, tenderness and love that came thru. I do wish some of the story could have been written alittle differently but overall the story did shine thru sweetly and with the light it needed to. I loved the 2nd chance love angle and the growth the characters showed.
My rating: 4.4 stars ****
