My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A sweet, feel-good, second chance romance.

This was a relatively quick and easy to read book. The characters, Evie and Jack, are enjoyable and you can easily relate to them and their story. After they are reunited for the second time they quickly realise that they never fell out of love despite assuming they have both been wronged by the other. The story then works towards making their love whole again as Jack realises that he needs to return to his hometown in order to make Evie his once again.

I want an eternity with you, Jack. You’re my forever. Always have been, and always will be.

After seeing Jack again for the first time in years, Evie flees from him and in doing so knocks herself out. When she opens her eyes, Jack is holding her in his arms and despite her best intentions, she realises this is where she has always meant to be. With a secret haunting her though, Evie tries to push Jack away until she can find a way to tell him what happened between them years before.

I’m drunk on Evie, and I don’t think life will ever be the same again.

The side character of Evan seemed to be my particular favourite in this story. Living with Evie, Jack assumed that he will have a fight on his hands to win her heart once again but little does he know that he also rings Evan’s bells. Evan was funny, warm, charismatic and an absolute sweetie and I almost wished he was the main character of this story.

I’ve always belonged to Jack Nelson.

Whilst I enjoyed the book I found it a little simplistic and despite wanting to love the story, I found it lacking somewhat in plot, depth and drama. After the initial mystery as to why Evie and Jack stopped communicating when separated as teenagers, and the revelation that Evie kept something huge from Jack, there was no drama and an all too easy acceptance, in my opinion. I wanted fireworks, frustration, rejection, fighting for their relationship but sadly, Jack just forgave Evie and they carried on with their relationship as if nothing had happened.

We’re a team now, Evie girl.

As always, Chelle Bliss’ writing style drew me in with ease especially due to the delicious characters that she creates and Evie, Jack and Evan were no exception.
