This is the first book in this series that I have read. The Story is about Karen Patton as she tries to move on once her divorce papers have been sent off to her almost ex-husband. To get away she spontaneously flies to Rome for her friend’s wedding. Little does she know the one person she is trying to escape will be there as well. Tate Patton has always put his work before everything else in his life. And that mistake has cost him his wife. The only person that mattered. After getting the divorce papers he picks up and flies to Rome, only to come face to face with the one person he was trying to forget.
When I picked this book up I didn’t realize it was going to be a novella type book. It was a quick read that had a whole lot of emotion running through it. Karen is trying to live with having to let go of the love of her life because he had changed. She was a strong person to realize that Tate is not the person she fell in love with and had the strength to leave him. She is going through many changes and one of them being Tate turning back into the person she loved.
Tate goes through his own changes in this book. He realizes him mistakes and he tries to win his wife back. He doesn’t make excuses he just tries to fix the damage that he caused.
The story was well written and the character developed well I just think that the story line was too much for a book that was 170 pages. Some parts of the book felt really rushed to me. I think I would have enjoyed the book even more if the story had been longer. If you like second chance romances this would be a great book for you.
