Summary

One word.
Stay.
It was all he had to do. Instead, he got on that bus and took my heart with him.
That was 17 years ago.
I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again.
Alone, penniless, and with two boys, I had no choice but to return to Tennessee. He wasn't supposed to be there. I should've been safe. However, fate has a way of stepping in.
This time around, the tables are turned. It's my decision. Second chances do exist, but I don't know if we can repair what's already been broken...

Perfect

I absolutely loved this second chance romance. I loved the story (heart breaking in places I must say), I loved the writing, and I loved the characters. The story follows Presley as she navigates becoming a widower in her mid 30s. It follows the struggles of her, her two sons, her 'sister' and her family and friends back home whom she hasn't seen for 18 years. As Presley try's to come to terms with her husband's death she has no choice but to return to her family home and, after 17 years, she has no choice but to face her first love, Zach. Zach who it would seem will always be in her heart. She has to deal with two 11 year old boys who are struggling with the death of their father and are also adjusting to life in a small town. Presley is struggling to keep all the secrets she has kept hidden from so many people from coming out. It's hard keeping secrets in a small town though, the question is can everybody survive the fallout when said secrets refuse to remain hidden? While the book has some emotional scenes, it is also funny, sexy and highly addictive. Zach is pretty perfect, along with his two highly entertaining brothers. Thoroughly enjoyed. Narration was perfect.

A rating overall...

My Review:
Overall: 4.5
Performance: 4.5
Story: 4.5

This story broke my heart for one reason...Presley. From the moment the story begins, you can't help but feel for this heroine who's life has spun completely out of her control. And as the story unveils, you realize this has always been an issue in her life. She's NEVER been the one in control. That was true with her teenage romance with Zach and it was sure the truth about how things ended with her husband. She's simply trying to survive with her heart partially intact...for her twin sons. Honestly, if it weren't for the boys, I don't think she would have even tried to regain her life. Yeah, my heart broke for her and the story is written brilliantly so that as the reader you can really empathize with what she's going through.

The other side of that is Zach. He and Presley were totally in love through high school and the beginning of college. But Zach's other love was baseball. That was his ultimate goal...a pro baseball career, so when he got the opportunity, he jumped at it, expecting Presley to follow. She didn't. He's never forgiven her for that. She's never forgiven her for choosing baseball over her. And she's never been back home because it hurt too much. Every single place at home reminds her of what she lost with Zach. What she doesn't realize when she comes home this time is that Zach has returned too. So not only will she be facing the memories, but she will also have to learn how to coexist with Zach in the same space.

There's so much emotion in this book. It was a great read/listen. The narrators also do a phenomenal job. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, even more so than I expected to. Although I shouldn't have underestimated the book because it's been in the top 100 for months now. I'm also excited to read the stories for the other Hennington brothers. I'm just hoping that as soon as they release, they are also available in audio, because this was a great listen and I'd love to have the same experience for the other two books in the series.

Worth it

I had read the book for Corinne Michaels' Say You'll Stay, but I received a copy of the audible as a gift. Andi Arndt and Sebastian York do a wonderful job on the narration. Even though I knew the story, their presentation still brought me to tears and laughter. Do yourself a favor and listen to this story. You won't regret it.
