They should be over each other.

For two years, Olivia has served her ex-husband coffee at the diner where she works, and waited for her heart to catch up to her brain. Because they were divorced now, and for good reasons. He wasn’t ever going to change. He’d always be a cop first, a soldier second, and a husband third, when there was time.

Rafe didn’t believe in love at first sight until he met Olivia, and then he was a goner. They’d been too young, too reckless, but that hadn’t stopped him from bringing her home to Pine Harbour, where there was nothing for her to do while he saved the world.

Then it all fell apart. And now…

He never stopped loving his wife, but he let her go when it became clear he wasn’t what she needed.

She deserves more than a part-time lover who once broke her heart.

Rafe wants a second chance to prove he can be the man she wanted when they fell in love.

And Olivia still wants Rafe despite all the excellent reasons why she shouldn’t.

They should be over each other…but they aren’t.

A 20 chapter story of a divorced waitress and her very hot policeman/part-time soldier ex in his very small hometown in the Bruce, Ontario, Canada. The attraction still reigns 2 years after the divorce, the drama and angst continues between them, his family, and their friends. Very explicit sex scenes and language. This story can also be found in the .99 boxed set Fall in Love.

This book ensnared me in from the very first chapter and kept me enraptured to the very last page. I really enjoyed that this book shows a unique look at a love story - two people who are already in love, have struggled through a marriage and divorce, and both don't want to admit that they still love each other but are unable to find a way to be together. They fight their feelings for each other throughout the entire book. Their marriage is truly one that can be described as "love isn't always enough" and it takes both of them a while to figure out what else they have to do to make their love work. There are times the author flashes back to previous times in Rafe and Olivia's marriage and it helps the reader to gain insight into what has driven them apart. I loved Rafe in this book. He isn't hesitant to show - and tell - Olivia how he feels about her; he just struggles with the way to do so in a way that makes for a successful marriage. As they are rekindling their relationship, I like how each of them really seems to be trying to figure out what didn't work about their last marriage and try to change that for the better. I think Rafe comes to his realization quicker and I love how he starts courting Olivia again. It takes Olivia longer to figure out that what she needs out of her marriage she can only get from herself and not from Rafe. This is truly a love story - because it shows that love and marriage is hard, and it shows two people who BOTH work to create a successful marriage. They rebuild their relationship on the love they both still have, and each make changes and efforts that addresses what they believe their shortcomings were in their previous marriage ,and it results in a stronger second relationship between the two of them. It is a feel-good story with a happy ending I was cheering for from the first page.

I really enjoyed Rafe and Olivia's story. These two are both too stubborn to admit that they miss the other one. When Olivia decides she is going to leave town instead of seeing Rafe date, Rafe decides to fight to get his ex-wife back. These two start to work through their issues and Rafe is shot and things heat up fast with these two. I enjoyed meeting all of Rafe's brothers, sister and friends. I am looking forward to reading more in this series and by this author.

Right off, this is no lady. She uses the f-bomb often. But I am on forced bedrest and few options on how to spend my time. Finally the story line induced me to read on and I did enjoy how a divorced couple find that maybe they were divorced too soon.

Olivia's ingratitude toward her hard-working & trustworthy husband got very old very quickly!

This book has it all. The renewed romance is something every cpl should get. It hit home for me. The drama part threw me alittle, and o wished there were more details for that. Great style, steamy hot love, must read

Another winner from Zoe York! She does an amazing of of showing rather than telling. With the history between the two main characters, it would have been easy to get bogged down in explaining. Instead, she was able to jump back in time and have the reader experience the memory along with the character. This was another touching story from Zoe making the strong point that love conquers all. Though the expression is trite, the story was not. The characters were real people discovering that which they didn't realize when they were younger. Love really can overcome most challenges, but it must be combined with respect and understanding. The growth in Olivia and Rafe was believable and inspiring, a great reminder that the right love can and should last forever, even if it requires fighting for it. The writing is definitely intended for those over 18.

When I started reading this book, I remembered reading some of This is the same as her other books. Actually, I only read a very little, before seeing something that I didn't want to waste my time on. What she writes is too descriptive, too much sex, and the same old garbage. Don't waste your money.

This was an enjoyable story to read. The characters were believable and not "perfect people." It was a joy to read a story that was well written as well as entertaining. I'm looking forward to reading more by Zoe York!!
