I still adore historicals but I am so happy that I decieded to give modern romance a chance. This book helped to confirm that. I loved the story of the hero and heroine's past mistakes and second chance at love. It seemed so real. The author did a wonderful job pacing the book. I loved that in the beginning they weren't lusting after each other, but grew into their attraction for each other slowly again. It was more believable that way, after what they went through with each other in the past. I usually don't like "getting back together romance" because I love seeing the relationship and falling in love from the beginning of the courtship, but in this book I didn't feel like I missed out on that because RG still gave that to you with a realistic back story.
I know that some readers hated Sam and didn't want to forgive him for how he treated Autumn and his son in the beginning, but everyone makes mistakes and needs to be forgiven since they want to be forgiven themselves when they make their mistakes. He wasn't the best father, but he wasn't the worst either, and the wonderful thing was that he saw his mistake and stepped up to the plate when he realized how his son was hurting. He changed and became a better father to his son and that's what really matters. All in all this was a very nice read and RG is an author I will try again.
