Taylor Delaney is the love of my life.
She’s also the one I’ve hurt the most.
Two years ago, I made a disastrous mistake.
One I’m not sure I can make amends from.
But I have to try, because I’m nothing without her.
Brad Ashby’s here, in my hometown, asking for a second chance.
All those unresolved feelings for him have resurfaced.
Not that they ever went away.
I know I should run him out of the town, but I can’t.
He needs to know that I wasn’t the only one who was deceived.
Even if we gave our relationship another try, how can we rebuild what’s been destroyed? If we weren’t strong enough then, what makes us strong enough now?
Love Rekindled is the second story in the Love Surfaced series, but can be read as a stand-alone. One of things that really drew my attention to this story was the cover. And as a fan of second chance romances, I had to check this one out.
Love Rekindled was a quick and easy read for me. I liked the idea of the story and I thought the characters had a lot of potential. Since I haven’t read the first book, I did feel like I was missing a little back story with Brad and Taylor, so that made it a little hard for me to connect with them. I also felt like there was a lot of missed opportunities with this story. Given the nature of the Brad and Taylor’s break up, I would have expected more angst and groveling on Brad’s part. Like I wanted to see Brad really work for Taylor’s forgiveness and then see the two of them work to rebuilding their relationship. Ultimately, they both just left me wanting more.
Overall, I thought this book was just ok. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it either. Love Rekindled is a sweet second chance romance with very light drama. I think this story had a ton of potential, but just ended up falling flat for me. This is just my opinion. Even though this story wasn’t a home run for me, it was still worth checking out.
