Another one that I absolutely couldn't put down! Nicole gave me the best second chance romance i have read in years! It brought ALL the emotions and had all the fun I love in a novel from her. Canaan and Maggie have the type of love that beats all odds. It is the type of love that even when it has been years, still burns as bright as the first day it sparked. Well, that love also made Maggie strong enough to leave when things were at a point of no return. From that day she left, the love was there, but they are forever apart. Years later when she comes home for a funeral, all the sparks are flying again and she has choices to make that will change her life in a big way. I loved Ford. I loved everything about him. Heck, I loved Maggie just as much. She was a woman who did what she needed to do to save herself and I can't fault her for that. This book was a true page turner. I Love second chances and I love ultimatums and bargains ever more. This book gave it all and in the end you truly are happy with they way everything played out. I love this author. I need to go grab another one of her reads because these characters are the best. The kind you root for from day one.
***He wants a second chance. I want a divorce. To get what I want, I’ll have to give him what he does.***From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Nicole Williams: The only benefit I want from my ex is a divorce. We got married for all the wrong reasons. The one thing we got right was our separation. I should have known better than to think I could bet on forever with a guy like Canaan Ford. Everything about him screamed impermanent, from his wild eyes to his restless soul. When I left him and the small town I’d spent my whole life in, I swore I’d never go back. Never only turned out to be five years. Canaan claims he’s changed, but he hasn’t—same knowing smile, same rough demeanor, same body crafted from sin and sinew. And yet, something is different. He thinks this is his chance for redemption. My disagreement comes in the form of divorce papers dropped in his lap. He refuses to sign them. Unless . . . He wants a month to prove himself to me—that’s his offer. One month to make me fall in love with him again and if I don’t, he’ll sign the papers. As much as I want to say no, I agree. I can suffer my ex for a short amount of time if that’s what it takes to be free of him once and for all. I fell for him once; I won’t make that same mistake twice. He says we’re not over. I say we were over before we got started. Only one of us can be right, and I can’t let it be him.
