Some things you never forget…

Your first time. Your first love. Your first broken heart. Or, in Jessi Riley’s case, all three combined in one…as Clinton Marks.

Bad boy extraordinaire, Clint left town the night of Jessi’s graduation, after sharing one unforgettable night together. Now, two decades later, he’s back in her life as the military doctor looking after her daughter!

As shared memories float to the surface, Jessi and Clint can no longer deny their longing for each other. Could it be that second time around, one night will become forever?

After kissing bad boy Clinton Marks twenty two year ago, Jessie Riley never would have imagined he would be the military doctor treating her daughter. Will they be able to pick up where they left off years ago?

I enjoyed the dedicated widow mom tending to her daughter’s well being. An inspiration to see that after her husband’s death, Jessie Riley had a small child but still was able to remain dedicated to becoming a doctor. The writing was in readable detail and the editing was of good quality. The hospital events where Jessie works was brief but entertaining.

This was not a page turner for me. The plot didn’t really have much excitement for my taste. There was a lot of reference to Jessie and Clinton’s past during high school but not much building on a relationship at the present time. I didn’t feel the attraction or vibes between the two. There wasn’t any romance, or twist to the story. Pretty much just straight into the relationship like twenty two years hadn’t passed. They have matured and lived but to me it stood out that they weren’t connecting as the present people that they are now. The book gave the impression they were still going by feelings from twenty two years ago. Quite frankly I’m not sure what feelings because they didn’t even date in high school.

Reconciling the past is always good. Two souls having reconnected and moving on to a future together is an encouraging heart warming read. Two characters that are making a living caring and tending to others medical need, now a second chance has presented itself and they have found each other and able to accept the mistakes from their past. Will they be able to build a future together?

Though the book won’t go down as a favorite of mind it’s still one I could recommend to those the like a book that is easy and enjoyable to read.
