She couldn’t forget him, even if she tried…
When Amelia Corbyn was a vulnerable teen, she found out she wasn’t a Corbyn by blood. Her biological father was a legendary country singer who wanted nothing to do with her. Hurt and confused, Amelia fled Last Stand Texas for a modeling career in New York. She left behind her high school boyfriend and family who had kept too many secrets. Years later Amelia’s back in Last Stand, retired from modeling and determined to care for her aging parents. She’s not expecting to see the one man she loved and couldn’t forget. Even worse, the spark is still there just waiting to burst into a flame.
Former pro-football player Cal Delaney returns to Last Stand to raise his sister’s toddler after a car accident claims her life along with her husband. His feelings for Amelia seem stronger than ever, but he has secrets and responsibilities; and Amelia has already proved to him that when things get tough, she skips town.
Can Cal forgive their past so that he and his first love can have a future?
📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
While I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet second chance romance, I have to say it was very sad. My heart hurt for most of the book. I won’t go into details but I can tell you there are some intensely heartbreaking moments.
Amelia and Cal had a brief relationship when they were in high school. And while they could have had an incredible relationship, Amelia left town for good reasons. While I understood her reason for running, I didn’t approve of the way she left. Of course, I have never had to be in her shoes so I can’t be too critical. I will also say while I absolutely loved the man Cal became, I did not care for Amelia. She was a hot and cold character and I found her selfish most of the time. Clearly, she had issues to deal with and I believe she should have handled them BEFORE starting anything with Cal. Cal had a hold of my heart throughout this whole book. He has suffered through unimaginable tragedies and still remained an amazing person. Cal was, selfless, loyal, protective and was capable of strong feelings. I found him to be a gentleman. A sexy, lovable gentleman.
I’m sorry to say it took nearly the whole book for Amelia to get her act together and that was a little disappointing to me because I felt that Cal deserved so much more. The enjoyment I experienced within this book had mostly to do with Cal and the secondary characters. I love romances that are set in small towns. You can be sure that at some point, everyone will have their own book.
As I am already a huge fan of Tule publishing authors and books and loved the Montana Born novels, I know I have a lot of great books to look forward too with the Texas Born series.
I am looking forward to the next book in the Delaney series. I believe that will feature Finn.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
