Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.
I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them.
But now he’s back.
I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid.
Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance.
One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey brought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.
*A contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion*
Five Amazing Stars! Wade and Elliot meet in High School and become sweethearts. When they graduate high school Wade decides to join the Army and wants Elliott to follow him. Elliot does not join Wade and now seven years later Wade is on his way back due to the fact that his father has cancer and is dying. During the first year that Wade was gone Elliott had written to Wade every day letters that remain unanswered. Elliot has always regretted not joining him and wonders if that is why he never answered the letters. What will happen now that Elliot and Wade are in the same town? Will they forgive each other? This book is well written and is a beautiful story about a second chance romance. I loved the characters and was moved to tears at times with all the emotions that I felt while reading this book. This is a Jane Austen inspired novel and the author also includes beautiful poetry in between each chapter. This novel is definitely one that will stay with me for a long time to come. I highly recommend it! I look forward to where Ms. Hart will go next!

“Joel Anderson doesn’t take anything seriously.
Not his relationships, which have been few and far between since his brutal divorce. Not the drama of working in a tattoo parlor, which seems to be around every corner. When things get him down, he smiles and cracks a joke. But he’s not the kind of man you cross, or you’ll find yourself at the wrong end of his fists.
Annika Belousov takes everything seriously.
Like her job as a reality television producer, given that she typically has something to prove. Or her love life, which is defined by a series of requirements — affluent, ambitious, accomplished, to name a few. Definitely her family, who worked their whole lives to afford her every opportunity, a sacrifice she doesn’t take lightly. When she’s tapped to produce a reality show at Joel’s shop, she doesn’t think twice, just goes in for the kill, as if there were any other way.
The second Annika walks into Joel’s shop, he makes it his mission to crack her open, but she’s not having it. He’s all wrong — too crass, too hairy, too un-serious. But it doesn’t take her long to find out there’s more to him than smirks and tattoos. And what she finds could put her career and his heart on the line.
Not that Joel cares. Because for the first time in a long time, he’s found his tonic.”
Review: Five Awesome Stars! Annika is reality television producer and is currently working on a show about a tattoo shop named Tonic. Annika is very much an “Ice Queen” which she uses to help to protect herself. Joel is cocky, sure of himself, hairy and the owner of Tonic. When he meets Annika for the first time he is determined to break down her walls and get her to laugh. Joel finds Annika very attractive and is determined to win her over. Can Joel break her walls down and change her mind enough so she will fall in love with him? Ms. Hart writes a well written story that had me turning the pages needing to know what was going to happen next. I thoroughly loved the characters! The story is filled with angst, funny moments, and most definitely sizzling romance. Highly recommend it!
