A sweet, clean second chance romance.
The book starts out a bit slower than what I’m used to but the pacing of the romance between Reed and Grace is far from slow. Their romance spans a matter of less than three weeks…well their second chance romance.
In high school, Grace was the quintessential “it” girl. The popular cheerleader with six siblings. Her only form of rebellion was secretly dating the quarterback of their rival high school. Back then, any one who dated or associated with someone from Meadowdale was chastised and bullied. Neither Grace nor Reed wanted that to happen. They dated all of Senior year in secret. Grace went to college.
Grace never forgot about Reed–compared every guy to him. No one compared. It never occurred to Grace that she would run into her ex during her three week stay to teach a screenwriting class at her sister, Amber’s bookstore.
Ten year later, Reed returns to his hometown to help his uncle Roy after his heart attack. Roy and his wife raised Reed. Of course, he would return to help the man with his construction company. Roy taught him everything about restoration and construction. What Reed didn’t know is the last construction job before his uncle returns to work is the Montgomery place. He also didn’t know that Grace was coming home for a visit.
Reed let her go once. He decided he wasn’t doing that again.
Everything about this book is small town living from how everyone is in everyone else’s business to how they help each other out. Grace thought she was running away from the small town living when in reality she was reminded how much she loves it and her family. A very endearing, sweet romance.
The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever Synopsis:
Fall in love with Addison Cole’s rich and romantic storytelling, and discover the magic of the Montgomerys.
In The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever…
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again-ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.
Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.
Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again-and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…
