My Review

Second chance romances are some of my favorite books. Although, Adam and Lily have a tough spot to come back from. They were each other’s first everything. You know, the high school sweethearts who are so in love they MUST get married as soon as they can. Life is perfect, until Lily stands Adam up. Lily also seems to skip town and not look back, leaving a broken Adam behind. Adam heads out to hide from the pain and hurt. He joins the US and stays for over 10 years. He returns home after word of his mother’s illness reaches him.

Over the years, Adam has been fed some lines by a very trustworthy source. He believes Lily has moved on with another local boy. Once he returns though, he sees how wrong everything is. He’s been fed bullsh*t for years and believed every work. Lily has also had the same thrown at her all while having something very precious of Adams.

Adam and Lily can’t seem to stay away from each other after a, literal, run in. Lily sees a man who has grown into something gorgeous. While Adam sees a completely different Lily. She’s tired and too thin.

This book is their journey into forgiveness and learning the truth about their past and people in their lives. I was so super excited to see that Copper Creek is going to be a new series. I loved this group of guys and can’t wait to see them settle down and find love. I also love reading series because you usually get to catch up with previous characters so I’m hoping to see updates on Lily and Adam.

There’s a lot going on in this book. You get sucked in and so surprised with who does what.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
