Overview

Riley Stone kissed Hope, Texas goodbye and good riddance eleven years ago, when she headed out to conquer the music world with a head full of dreams and a heart bruised by unrequited love. Now the alluring singer is back with one mission in mind-save the old music hall before Jackson Hope can tear it down.

Long ago, Riley fell for Jackson-a skinny kid with worldly ways and a family who literally owned the town. But now the elder Hopes are letting their town fall apart. Signs of dilapidation are everywhere...except on the grown-up and strikingly sexy Jackson. As the two go toe-to-toe, Riley can't help but take notice.

Jackson is having a hard enough time trying to pull the town out of bankruptcy without battling the girl who tormented him with desire through his high school years-especially when she's even more tempting than he remembers. And now he's going to have to choose between the life he planned, and a woman he finds unforgettable.

Meet the Author

Most authors say they grew up reading. Not Julie Ortolon. Born with dyslexia, she didn't even learn how to read until her early twenties when she discovered that romance novels were worth the effort. It was only with the additional discovery of computers with spell-check that she was able to turn her favorite hobby-daydreaming romantic stories-into a career. Having her first novel hit the USA Today bestseller list was a dream come true.

Well, Julie did it again. She just keeps getting better and better with every new release. Julie has a way of taking you to the scene of the story by way of vivid description of the town and characters. I lived in Hope Texas for a full 2 days...,too short in my own opinion but I just cannot put the book down. Riley and Jackson's love for each other simply made my heart melt. A little cheesy on the ending though but that is overshadowed by the greatness of the entire book. I wish there was a part two, I just couldn't get enough of the main characters.

When she left Hope, Texas with no hope for her future at least there, Riley Stone vowed to never return. Eleven years later, Riley ponders the irony that she lives in Hope in her grandmother's house and sings at a restaurant. Riley left the small town hopelessly in love with Jackson Hope, but he apparently did not reciprocate her deep yearning. She assumes that maturity will enable her to put aside her fantasy until she sees him for the first time since she left, as she now knows the fantasy was actually her believing she no longer wanted him. A lawyer Jackson is attracted to the adult Riley just like he was when they were teens and he hid his feelings from her out of nerdy shyness. This time he will not let her go without telling her how much he wants her, but they disagree on what to do about an old music hall. He wants to tear it down to build on the site while she wants to renovate it. --- This well written small town Texas romance is a fun tale to read because of the lead couple, who as adults are in love just like they were as teens, but this time plan to act on their attraction. However, instead of shyness keeping them apart, the music hall prevents the duo from fulfilling the full promise of their relationship. Riley hopes the second time around proves eternal while Jackson knows whatever he does with the hall she will remain eternally UNFORGETTABLE inside his heart. Julie Ortolon provides a charming contemporary romance. ---Harriet Klausner
