When I requested this from Netgalley, I didn't realise there had been a previous book about Brad's sister and his best friend. I'm presuming a lot of Brad and Taylor's history was mentioned in that book as in this book, we only get brief flashbacks of their relationship. I feel the author wrote this book assuming all her readers would have read the previous book. Therefore, I didn't really believe in the great love that Brad and Taylor were supposed to have for one another. It sounded more like ...more

Taylor & Brad were dating in college when Brad's dream of Olympic selection ended. This was the beginning of a downward spiral for Brad. He indulged in the temptation of alcohol and drugs to sooth his disappointment. Taylor had seen this behaviour before from her own sister and father. She was shocked to now be experiencing this with Brad but after some really deep soul searching she decides to give him one more chance to pull himself out of the hole he was falling down. However, the scene she w ...more

This was a cute story about second chances. Taylor caught her boyfriend cheating on her so after graduation she went back to her hometown. Now two years later Brad has come to win her back but earning her trust back won't be easy.

Brad hit a downward spiral after he found out he wouldn't be going to the Olympics. He drank, did drugs and cheated on the woman he loved. Now he wants Taylor back in his life but gets the shock that he is a father. Is he mad he missed out? Yes but he doesn't blame her

Oh, my heart! It PLUMMETED with the first words in Love Rekindled—a book I knew had the potential to bruise my heart, but which I couldn’t wait to read… And I am so glad I did, because while it may have plummeted with the opening line, in the end, my heart had soared higher than high.

Brad Ashby… He could have been—and was—an arrogant bastard. A heart-breaker. But he wasn't just that. No, actually, he was HARDLY that. Because at his core, Brad was a loving, caring, good man looking to make amend

I wish there more star ratings were available for reads like this! I loved every page of this book.

This book is a second chance romance and is told in dual POVs, which I love. It already started off on a positive note in my eyes with being one of my favorite genres and the dual POVs.

We got a glimpse of Taylor and Brad in Love Surfaced and I for one, was curious as to what happened and if they got their happy ever after.

I don’t want to give any of the details away with this one, but I will say

I haven't read the first story in this series and I don't really think it's necessary to read this, but I think it could add to it.
Taylor and Brad dated in college, his dream of becoming an Olympian is shattered and his life spirals out of control. In his haze he cheats on Taylor and gets caught in the act. Now, 2 years later he's back in her life, but she has a secret.
The story was good, a sweet story of second chances. It doesn't have a lot of drama, but it kept my attention. I enjoy the sec

I really liked this and loved seeing Brad get his happy ending, loved seeing Piper and Tanner again.
I only gave it a 3 because while I liked it, I didn't love it. I am an angst queen. I would have loved more angst involved to give it a higher rating. :)

This is a second chance romance that will leave you with a sweet, happy feeling when you are done. I did not read the first book in this series but I don’t believe that I lost a beat so don’t let that keep you from reading this one. That isn’t to say that I’m not going to go back and read the first book because this one was really good.

Brad was an Olympian hopeful in swimming but his dreams came to a crushing halt when he was cut from the team but his best friend Tanner made it through. Brad’s w

I am a true sucker for second chance romances so when chance to check this one out, I was more than happy to. Love Surfaced, the first book in this series, was a sweet read I enjoyed, so I was glad to get to see more of Tanner & Piper in this one. This book could be read as a stand alone, but I am glad I got to read both as I think I enjoyed the story more plus we got a glimpse of Brad in the first book.

Taylor and Brad were once a happy couple. That all quickly began to change when

This book was originally reviewed on The Book Hookup.

4 sweet stars That first paragraph wow’d me. The raw honesty of it…I couldn’t help but want to know Brad, even though he had some really big regrets… I can admit I kind of fell for him right then and there. It’s ok if you judge me, he redeemed himself big time and I was glad Taylor give him a second chance.

I think what I loved most about this story (besides sexy as hell Brad Ashby) is that while yes, secrets had been kept and mistakes had been
An all consuming, emotive read about second chance love, that I literally did not want to put down from start to finish. I knew from reading the opening page that my heart was in for a bumpy ride, I was just hoping it would survive...

There's not much more I love than a second chance romance. Toss in another big secret that's a favorite of mine, which I won't give away, and I'm hooked! While it would help to give you more background context, you don't necessarily have to read the first book in this series before this one. In fact, I might almost recommend reading them out of order because I didn't much like Brad in the previous book. I'm all about stories of redemption though, so I had to find out what happened.

I was really looking forward to reading Love Rekindled after I read the blurb and pretty much the moment it appeared on my kindle I jumped right into it. I LOVE love so a second chance romance novel is one I cannot pass up. Love Rekindled is the story of Brad Ashby, who broke the heart of his one true love, Taylor, when his dreams crumbled right in front of him. After many years of reflection and tr

Taylor Delaney met and fell in love with the love of her life during her last years in college. Brad Ashby was on the swim team and a known lady's man. Just the type of guy Taylor knew she shouldn't fall for but just couldn't help herself. Then when Brad's olympic dreams crash around him his life goes into a tail spin, one Taylor tries to pull him out of. Instead he breaks her heart when she finds him in bed with
Love Rekindled is the first book I have read by Michelle Lynn, even though I have several of hers on my Kindle. I was consumed with the book from the very first few words I read. There is nothing better than a “feel good” second chance romance. This one left me with warm fuzzies!

Both characters, Brad and Taylor, have made mistakes in their pasts. Brad’s mistake, in particular, caused the demise of their relationship. In fact, I’m not so sure I could have forgiven him for all that he put Taylor t

I have been waiting for Brad’s book since I finished Love Surfaced and it was sooooo worth the wait. I absolutely loved it and couldn’t put it down and was so sad when I finished. This is a second chance romance with one big no way surprise that is revealed. I wasn’t expecting it, but we find it out quickly and it isn’t drug out, which I loved. There is some drama and roadblocks but nothing is exaggerating and is just enough. This is a fun and hot romance, with characters that you will
First I really like this book not just about second-chance but for themselves too.Especially to Brad he gain me so much in this book. Its not common we see a character with no future in his life to change so quickly after because he wants too. This book for me is all for Brad. I love how strugle and try to start a new life.


Taylor, uhmm. I get the girl and why she did it but we could never know if was or not a good choice, yes she gave him space but she could had approach. Like a said he fails wi

I have to say that I started this book and I honestly could not put my kindle down. I had to finish it because I was hooked from the first sentence!

"I'm a cheater"

Of course we were aware from the first book how he cheated at the drug screening for swimming so we already knew this. When, in the opening of the book, he was waiting in the parking lot to see Taylor and spoke those words my heart was broken. I wasn't sure if I was going to like Brad and I was secretly hoping

Love Rekindled is the second book in the Love Surfaced series. It can be read as a standalone, but I recomend you to read the first book before reading this one to get more details about this couple.

Brad and Taylor have a very complicated past. They were together in college but Brad´s life was turned upside down and Taylor broke up with him. (Let me be honest: he was an asshole and she should have kicked his ass a long time before that).

Now, after some time and a lot of effort, he turned his lif

I was not expecting this story line at all! It was absolutely amazing. Who would have thought that going after the girl who had his heart there would also be another surprise a HUGE one. I love Brad he's finally found his way.
