Blog Tour: THIS TIME AROUND – Ellie Grace
Nora Montgomery left home and heartbreak behind in South Carolina when she moved to New York City after her high school graduation. Now, four years later, she returns home and is forced to confront the past she left behind and the reckless boy who broke her heart. It’s not long before the pieces of her past begin to blur with the present and she realizes that the feelings she had for her first love never really went away. As old dreams resurface and new truths come to light, she begins to question the future she’s always planned on.
Jake Harris has spent four years regretting the night he let her get away. When she finally reappears in his life, he is determined to win her back and prove how much he’s changed. She might never forgive him for that night, but if he tells her the truth about what really happened it will shatter the world she thought she knew. If he doesn’t, he might not get a second chance. He’s already lost her once and he won’t lose her again.
They come from two different worlds that are threatening to tear them apart…can they make it this time around?
For the most part, I enjoy second chance romances.. They tend to be hit or miss, but fortunately This Time Around falls in the former category. This book is about Nora and Jake, who were once high school sweethearts, but after graduation went their separate ways. Years down the line, a wedding brings them back together. Now this reunion part is critical and I was wondering if the author would drag on the drama or have the the couple reconnect right away. I won’t say how it comes together, only that I was glad with the author’s decision.
What else did I like about this story? No cliffhanger AND dual perspectives! I wish the book had been a bit longer, but I really enjoyed this sweet read all the same. I’d recommend This Time Around if you too appreciate a second-chance romance!
