Aubrey Reynolds is a small-town girl who’s made it big. A successful Hollywood director, Aubrey doesn’t have time to linger on what could have been. But when a routine blood test comes back with a false positive, she decides to take some time off to do the things she’s always wanted to do: taste the famous chocolate chip cookies at the Minnesota State Fair, hike the Grand Teton National Park, scuba dive in the Caribbean. But after Aubrey admits to herself what she’s really missing, she heads back home to Dusty Valley, Oklahoma . . . and the man she left behind.
Cole Haywood is a small-town fireman and that’s just fine with him. Sure, when the love of his life left their hometown to chase her dreams he was heartbroken and—he’ll admit—damn mad. But Cole would have never forgiven himself if he had held Aubrey back from success. So the last thing he expects after all these years is to walk into his favorite bar one night and find the girl he’s always loved—there—looking for him. Maybe now’s the time to make his dreams come true.
This adorable little gem of a book was exactly what I needed. Love, Again is a small town, second chance romance that had me swooning and cheering the entire book. This was my first read from L.P. Dover and I doubt it will be my last.
This book really makes you think about life and prioritizing what is important. It’s about making sure you do the things you want in life instead of putting it off, especially when it comes to love. I thought Dover did a great job writing this story and making me fall in love with Aubrey and Cole and the rest of the gang.
Aubrey has a new take on life and is taking the chance to do things she has always wanted. However, her biggest regret was not making things right with the man she left behind and is determined to see that through before continuing her journey. She doesn’t expect to find herself drawn back into this town she used to love and, most importantly, the man who has always held her heart. I love Aubrey’s character because she really goes after what she wants in life, even if it pains her to do it. She is beautiful and brilliant and a light in the darkness.
Cole is the ultimate man of your dreams gentleman who loves fiercely, protects savagely, and chases stubbornly. Don’t get me wrong, Cole doesn’t give in easily, but the build up was worth it. He is a beautiful man who has only ever wanted to put others needs ahead of his own. He has only wanted to make one girl happy in his life, which in turn makes him happy.
These two were pure magic and I thoroughly enjoyed their story. It was a full story of friends, family, laughter, tears, anguish, and adventure like no other.
