Something to Remember

Something to Remember

Something to Remember

Book 1 in the Second Chance Series

 

Mary and Ian knew, even as young children growing up during the Vietnam era, that they were soulmates for life. From the time he first started pulling her pigtails in grade school to get her attention, to the last time they kissed and danced in the dark on the eve of their forced break-up, Ian and Mary were made for each other. But life doesn't always allow soulmates to stay together. When they were forced to part in high school, they thought it would be forever. And the years they spent apart from each other felt endless. So, when they unexpectedly meet again as adults, they are thrilled to have a second chance at love.

 

But life is more complicated for both of them now, and some complications make a second chance, seem impossible. Now as attorneys, Ian and Mary find themselves representing opposing parties in a civil lawsuit, while alternatively recalling with fond nostalgia, a turbulent but care-free past that sets the stage for a rekindled love affair. "It sounds like you spent our gap years fully embracing the whole, rock and roll, free-love lifestyle like there wasn't a reason not to," Mary sadly points out to him after listening to his tale about the years he'd spent apart from her. But does his disappointing past have to matter to her today? Was it even relevant to their future? Mary wasn't so sure. There was so much goodness that she could still see in Ian today. And they both desperately wanted a future together. They had earned it. They deserved it.

 

"For me," Ian wistfully responds to her painful observation, "It feels like our last night together could have happened the other night and all we need to do is pick up the conversation from where it was interrupted years ago, as if it all happened yesterday… and just carry on. In which case, I should apologize for barfing all over the place that last night, and then completely falling apart on you."

 

His recollection of their last night together created such a contrast to the competent and confident attorney who sat across from Mary today. That was partly what made Ian so wonderful; there were so many layers to him that Mary wanted to unpack.

This story had me reading into the late hours, as I rooted for Ian and Mary to find love again. I'm a huge fan of second chance romances and this one did not disappoint!!! All the references to their younger years had me reminiscing about being young and falling in love. Read this book! You are going to love it.

The first few chapters had me hooked. You cannot help but reminisce about your own life growing up as you read this book. The songs, the nicknames, along with the memories Mary and Ian share have you hoping these two can rekindle the sparks from their young romance. Now adults, prior commitments and responsibilities can get in the way and it's interesting to learn what these are as you read on. I recommend Something to Remember.
