Twelve years ago he saved her and gave her her first kiss. She ran and they didn’t trade names. Now she’s run into him again and suddenly all the “safe” choices she’s made in her life seem questionable. His name is Brayden and he’s working part time for her sister in order to get enough money together to buy a ranch of his own. Leleila’s been taking the safe road ever since the incident 12 years ago and finds herself engaged to a man that ignores her, she failed her dissertation and she’s preparing to go to Africa after her wedding. In the meantime she’ll help her sister. June, her sister, immediately sees a connection between them and since she hates her sisters fiance, she doesn’t hesitate to give a little prod here and there. When her fiancé bails on a dance class, Brayden steps in, as a friend and they spend time getting to know each other. This is a wonderful story about two people who are perfect for each other and have been since the first time they saw each other. Now, as adults they’ll have to weigh their options for the future. I loved the characters in the book. Both Leleilani and Brayden were well developed and their story took the main stage. Lei’s sister June was very helpful and the fiancé was a waste of time. They had to deal with a number of obstacles including her ptsd from the event 12 years ago and he didn’t want to poach someone who belonged to another guy. One question from Brayden explains everything—she is going to Africa after the wedding and he asks if she wants to go—no one has asked her until now. She’s allowed herself to be pushed around but now, for Brayden she’ll make a stand. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC),

An enthralling enjoyable read! There is so much to look forward to – family, friends, witty banter, and humour. The book is well written and relatable; the plot is well-developed and consistent, the ideas are well-thought-out and there is a great pace from scene to scene. Brayden and Leleila are great together; they are strong and show true depth; their chemistry is off the charts and undeniable. This story will tug your heart strings, will make you smile, and will captivate and hold your interest until the end. It is a love story you will enjoy reading. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

An Outstanding Story! Don't let the cover fool you...this story has such depth and richness to it. The author, Melissa Belle, has written an engaging love story about what happens when you settle for the sake of forsake your own life for someone else's. and that what Leleila has done for twelve years and now she is about to marry Philip who she questions if this is the right thing to do. And Philip, he's so much in his head and ego centered that he pawns her off to Brayden and that sets them both off on an emotional roller coaster. I kept waiting for Leleila to walk in on Philip with another professor (Mindy)so she could storm out. Instead the author had, gasp, her act the adult and explain why they needed to break up. It was all so civil. The author also had her make an appointment with a therapist to address the trauma she experienced as a teenager. How healthy! Thank you Melissa for addressing what are symptoms of PTSD Leleila experiences. Definitely recommending this book for your reading enjoyment I am volunteering to leave a review of this advanced review book.

How is it possible this series just keeps getting better and better? I absolutely loved Brayden and Leleila. The author does a very good job of walking a very tricky line with all the characters involved. I also love how seamlessly the rest of the family is integrated.

When past collides with present, is listening to your heart worth risking your soul? Brayden is one woman's choice to play it safe and the man that could topple her house of cards. Belle gives readers a peek inside the head and hearts of a once happy couple. In their own words we get to discover what went wrong and if they are willing to make it right. Leleila and Brayden are the perfect blend of engaging frustration and heartbreaking first love. Will their hearts guide them back to love or will their head get in the way of a second chance?
