Nora Montgomery left home and heartbreak behind in South Carolina when she moved to New York City after her high school graduation. Now, four years later, she returns home and is forced to confront the past she left behind and the reckless boy who broke her heart. It’s not long before the pieces of her past begin to blur with the present and she realizes that the feelings she had for her first love never really went away. As old dreams resurface and new truths come to light, she begins to question the future she's always planned on.

Jake Harris has spent four years regretting the night he let her get away. When she finally reappears in his life, he is determined to win her back and prove how much he’s changed. She might never forgive him for that night, but if he tells her the truth about what really happened it will shatter the world she thought she knew. If he doesn’t, he might not get a second chance. He’s already lost her once and he won’t lose her again.

They come from two different worlds that are threatening to tear them apart…can they make it this time around?


My Review

5 of 5 This Time Around

This Time Around is a totally and amazingly written story. I could not believe it was the author's debut book because HOLY Jake I could not get enough. I loved everything about this story from the way it tugged at my heart to the ending which was SPECTACULAR in my eyes! 

Have you ever loved someone and they were so perfect for you in your eyes but your parents didn't agree? Your parents did not like him so they did everything in their powers to keep you two apart? Well welcome to Nora's world only she doesn't know it at the time. Nora and Jake are perfect for each other. They love each other and have been together for years. Jake is ready to take it to another level after high school graduation and Nora is excited. Only what happens is that after graduation Jake disappears leaving Nora with a broken heart.

Nora decides she is ready to leave her small town and move on from the hurt and the pain she is suffering. So she goes to college in New York. She studies hard and loves college but her heart wants what it wants and she can't get over Jake. So when he best friend calls her and tells her she is getting married and needs her help she goes back home where she has not been in four years.

When she gets home what she is greeted with is a surprise because she sees Jake and her feelings come flowing back to her ten fold and she can't understand why because it has been four years and she should be over him but she is not. Then to make matters worse Jake wants Nora back and has been waiting for her and he is determined to do what ever it takes to get her back. But Jake has kept a secret for four years and telling Nora just may break her. So what will he do? Will he tell her the secret or keep it? Will she believe him and take him back?

This is a must read for the summer on the beach in your car on the train in the plane wherever this is a MUST READ! ~Team Jake all the way!
