Overview

Fate has kept them apart for twenty years.
Their roads hadn’t crossed and the stars didn’t align until now…

Matured, more experienced, pierced, tattooed and hot as hell, Adrian steps back into Mia’s life to reclaim his first love.

And the moment she sees him she can’t even remember her own name.

Adrian Reed had always remained in Mia’s heart. After all, he was her first boyfriend and the man she’d lost her virginity to, but that was twenty years ago. His sudden appearance at a bar, on a girls night out, has Mia acting like the fifteen year old girl she was when they parted.

But life now is not as simple as it was twenty years ago. With two kids, a hopeful ex-husband and new insecurities, Mia finds opening up to a new relationship more challenging.

Will she give her first love another chance, or will she push him away, this time for good?

My Thoughts

Oh how i LOVE Lacey Silks and all that she writes.  What we have here is a really nice story about soul-mates and how love can last the test of time – twenty years to be exact.  You have no idea how much i wish that were my story!

Meeting as teens when Mia went to visit her aunt in Europe for the summer, a romance began, changing both Mia and Adrain forever. Distance and young fears pulled them apart, and what happened in those years in between shaped them for what was to be in the future.

Mia chose to try to move on, getting married to someone that was the complete opposite of Adrian, and that blew up in her face.  While she got 2 great children from it, her husband cheated on her, and compound that with a drinking problem – well that’s a recipe for disaster.

For Adrian, he was ruined forever by Mia, not wanting to give up on her, but somehow finding him in a situation that made him do it.  He got his girlfriend pregnant, in that grey area period of time when he and Mia had started to part ways, and that meant that they were done for ever – at least that’s what they thought.  The girl that he had a son with though, she wasn’t ideal either – aside from not being Mia, she had her own drinking issues, and well, that was too much for him to live with

So we get to current day, where Adrian’s put it all out there, moving to Canada to try to win Mia over, and the question that we follow through this story is will they survive and thrive.  While we know that they have a passion that transcends everything, Mia’s fear of committing to someone and failing seems to be a downfall for Adrian – while not a dealbreaker – something that’s pretty close.  It takes a trip to the hospital, a horrible car accident that cannot be returned from and an attempt to cut the cord with an unhealthy ex that shapes our story.

All the while though, we get the writing that we’ve come to expect from our great author.  It’s romantic and there’s a great back story, but at the same time we get heat, and we get passion and it’s really really hot.  I think that there were moments when i felt like i needed to take a cold shower myself, and that’s something that i feel has been lacking in some of my latest reads.  So….job well done and i hope that you guys pick it up and enjoy.
