Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren

I LOVED this read! This duo is one of my favorites. I swoon and a laugh and sometimes they even bring the tears. This one brought the laughs and the swoon and honestly, at parts of it I was even angry.

I am a sucker for Hollywood reads. Give me all the behind the scenes Hollywood reads. This one though? This one also made me a little sad. To see another side of this world that isn't typically depicted in reads. But I digress. I wanted t talk about how this read was all the romance. It wasn't insta-love, but it was an instant connection between characters, that literal once in a blue moon type of love. The kids you just know as soon as your heart sees the other. This was the read that got me so invested I raged with the main character and I was sad with her and then at the end I was completely in love with her and her story and I would absolutely love to have more in this world. This duo did what they always do. They gave us a world that we felt at home in and gave us the love story we didn't know we needed.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners and the “delectable, moving” (Entertainment Weekly) My Favorite Half-Night Stand comes a modern love story about what happens when your first love reenters your life when you least expect it… Sam Brandis was Tate Jones’s first: Her first love. Her first everything. Including her first heartbreak. During a whirlwind two-week vacation abroad, Sam and Tate fell for each other in only the way that first loves do: sharing all of their hopes, dreams, and deepest secrets along the way. Sam was the first, and only, person that Tate—the long-lost daughter of one of the world’s biggest film stars—ever revealed her identity to. So when it became clear her trust was misplaced, her world shattered for good. Fourteen years later, Tate, now an up-and-coming actress, only thinks about her first love every once in a blue moon. When she steps onto the set of her first big break, he’s the last person she expects to see. Yet here Sam is, the same charming, confident man she knew, but even more alluring than she remembered. Forced to confront the man who betrayed her, Tate must ask herself if it’s possible to do the wrong thing for the right reason… and whether “once in a lifetime” can come around twice. With Christina Lauren’s signature “beautifully written and remarkably compelling” (Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author) prose and perfect for fans of Emily Giffin and Jennifer Weiner, Twice in a Blue Moon is an unforgettable and moving novel of young love and second chances.
