  • Smart, sexy second chance romance

    In this second book of the series, Michelle, cousin of Jasmine from Book 1, reconnects with her childhood neighbor and best friend who left her behind at age 18 when he decided to go to college across the country in LA. Gabriel always felt stifled and oppressed by his father's rules and expectation that Gabe would always put the family stationary store ahead of his desire to choose his own career and prioritize his passion for baseball. Gabe felt that the only way to escape was to make a clean break with everyone from his past, hence after he left for UCLA, he ghosted Michelle, and later ghosted his parents as well, fearing that he wouldn't be able to stand up to their pressure. Now, at 30, Gabe is a licensed physical therapist who owns a successful gym focusing on motion and wellness, but his main investor is insisting that he open another location in NYC. Gabe agrees to go back and hires Michelle, now a successful marketing whiz, to do the marketing plan for the new location. She agrees because she wants some closure over the events of the past and wants some answers about why he ghosted her. However, neither of them expect the sparks that ignite as soon as they see each other. Whew, this book was pretty sexy - no slow burn here - as Gabe and Mich fall right back into a close friendship with the added intimacy of lots of sex. However, there are still lots of unresolved feelings and issues for Gabe that he needs to work through if he's going to finally move forward in his relationship with his family and with Mich. Although the book was fast paced and enjoyable, I found Gabe to be a bit lacking. His actions toward his family and Michelle in the past showed he had a lot of growing to do. In the present, whenever he had any difficulties, he regressed back to running away rather than facing his issues. I also didn't understand why Gabe and Mich didn't at least consider the possibility of a long-distance relationship once they reconnected. I did love all of the Latinx cultural references and the glimpses of both Gabe and Mich's families. I'd rate this 3.5 stars and will be looking forward to the final book. I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions in this review are my own.

  • Physical relationship first, romance second

    Nine years ago, Gabe left New York and never looked back. Now he's back in town to meet with Michelle, his childhood best friend, about a business proposal. Long-pent-up desire comes to the surface before they can get down to facts and figures. Is this a second chance at love, or a fling to get each other out of their system before he leaves again? This is a high-heat novel that focuses on the physical relationship first, and the romance second. Gabe and Michelle both have a lot of hurt to work out of their system before they can find their HEA. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.
