Finley Lawson and Georgette Taylor have been best friends since high school. Even though they’re from opposite sides of the tracks, they found common ground in their mutual love of the arts and the desire to prove themselves.
They were everything to one other, including being each other’s firsts.
Finley assumed they’d be together forever.
Georgette had other plans.
Fast forward five years, Finn and Jette have both moved to New Orleans, unbeknownst to each other, still trying to find their place in the world. They’re going to pick back up right where they left off, right? Well, it’s not that easy.
Finley has questions, as well as, some pent-up anger and resentment from Jette ghosting him five years ago.
And Georgette has a boyfriend.
What hasn’t changed is their deep connection and understanding of each other. Friends are what they agree to be, but some romances deserve a second chance and fate might have other plans.

The first word that comes to mind when I think of this story is respectful, and funny that, because that’s exactly one of the words I used to review my first book by this duo! I say respectful because this second chance romance wasn’t as easy as just they meet again years later …. There are circumstances present day that do not allow for these two to just jump to it and those circumstances could have been written in a way that wasn’t very respectful (in my eyes) but they weren’t. These ladies made sure this was a slow-burn journey which is the only way these two could have reconnected and me not be twitchy about the circumstance. LOL So props ~ yay! LoL
However, here’s the flip side of that … I’m disappointed in the amount of time our leads are on the page together. I totally get the why, but that doesn’t change the fact that this is a romance journey and well, the romance and the journey part were seriously lacking … for me. The writing was really good, and I enjoy this duo’s voice and style very much. There’s plenty of growth in the story and the plot was nicely developed. All of those things are huge pluses in a read for me, but again, lead interaction and building the romance just needs to be more prevalent. *shrug*
3.5 good times 😉 stars!
