Fifteen years ago, Syndie Wilder left her small hometown- Amherst, Ohio- to escape the pain of losing her best friend and boyfriend. Deciding that Chicago offered more for an up and coming jewelry designer, she enjoyed the big city life until she chooses to return and care for her father. Taking care of her father and relocating her internet business, Syndie has no time or desire for romance but fate has a way of playing with best-laid plans.
Thom Johnson broke Syndie’s heart all those years ago and regrets it every day. As a firefighter, Thom sets out to protect Amherst and redeem himself for his bad choices. However, he never has forgotten Syndie and the hurt he caused her.
When a chance meeting happens, can the two former friends allow themselves the chance to become friends again, or will the sparks turn a childhood friendship into a forever love?
Angie J's review:
I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
I like to read alllll lengths of novels. I love the quick read some days. This was a great quick read. I love the idea of going back and finding the one who broke your heart.....Finding your one true love.
Syndie and TJ were best friends and then they were Boyfriend/Girlfriend. Well, TJ, being a horny teenager, dumps Syndie for some "lady loving" with girls who will put out. Guess what? TJ kinda feels bad when Syndie wont talk to him and runs away when she graduates High School. He has regretted his actions ever since. Needless to say, when she returns to take care of her ailing father, TJ declares a war on her heart. He tells her he WILL be with her after apologizing for past behavior. Well Syndie doesn't know what to do or think. She still loves TJ and wants to believe they could be together but still love each other after 15 years??? Is that EVEN possible? This was a sweet and short novel. The HEA at the end is great and priceless. I loved the fact that Syndie's dad is who tells her to go after her "Forever Love" like he had with her mom. It is a sweet moment.
About the AuthorMelissa Keir has always wanted to be an author when she wasn't hoping for a career as a race car driver. Her love of books was instilled by her mother and grandparents who were avid readers. She'd often sneak books away from them so that she could fantasize about those strong alpha males and plucky heroines. In middle school and high school, Melissa wrote sappy love poems and shared them with her friends. She still has those poems today! In college, her writing changed to sarcastic musings on life as well as poems with a modern twist on fairy tales and won awards for her writing. You can find many of these musings along with her latest releases on her website and blog.
As a writer, Melissa likes to keep current on topics of interest in the world of writing. She's a member of the Romance Writers of America and EPIC. Melissa is always interested in improving her writing through classes and seminars. She also believes in helping other authors and features authors and their books on her blog.
Melissa doesn't believe in down time. She's always keeping busy. Melissa is a wife and mother, an elementary school teacher, a book reviewer, an editor for a publishing company as well as an author. Her home blends two families and is a lot like the Brady Bunch, without Alice- a large grocery bill, tons of dirty dishes and a mound of laundry. She loves to write stories that feature "happy endings" and is often found plotting her next story.
Melissa loves hearing from readers!
