I have this book for a while now but I haven't got the chance to read it yet. But now, finally I read it.

The story and the characters are good. This book is a second chance romance book. Despite raising their daughter by herself, Gamma did great. At first, I kind of not like Raef but as the story goes I started to like him. Overall, the story is good and I liked it.

Romance is not the usual genre that I read, but I just HAD to read C. Kaye's book! Gemma and Raef - their love didn't work out the first time around, but Gemma was left with a daily reminder of their love for one another. Now 5 years later, because of a business deal, they get a second chance. They forgive one another so completely and yes, they both contributed to the fault factor, so it's wonderful when they can put the past behind them and start new. Except - there's a twist! I won't give out ...more

This book is a second chance romance book and I really enjoyed reading it. C. Kaye did a great job with this book. Raef and Gemma are great characters. I really felt for them and what was happening in the book. Raef and Gemma had dated 5 years ago. Gemma thought everything was going well and had big news for him. But when she went to tell him he broke up with her instead. He thought he was doing the right thing and Gemma didn't really blame him. Gemma kept her big news to herself. Now Raef is ba ...more

Copy received from Author for honest review.

This is the first book that I have read by C. Kaye and I thought that it was a very sweet second chance romance book.

This is the story about Gemma and Raef. Gemma is a hairstylist and Raef is a higher up in his fathers company. What neither of them know is that they are both about to come into each others life after not seeing each other for 5 years.

Raef's father just bought out the salon chain that Gemma works at and it is Raef's job to go and talk

I really liked this book, the story definitely made me shed a few tears and I was quite emotional at a few points in the story. I had sort of predicted the way the story was going to go from the blurb, but I was surprised by the turn of events at one point! Held my breath for a while there.
I can't tell you the feelings I have for Raef's father! He is one nasty piece of work. I love little Charlotte. She is a proper character, a real credit to her mum, Gemma.
Poor Gemma, being treated the way she

This is a second chance romance. Raef Alvero left the love of his life five years ago to pursue his career. Gemma raises their daughter on her own without Raef's knowledge. Business intervenes causing them to cross paths once again. This time around Raef must prove to Gemma and Charlotte that he is not leaving. All of this is tested when Raef's dad interferes. This book I felt too wordy.

This was a good book about two characters that have the chance for a second chance at love. This book was sweet and the characters were both understanding and forgiving of the other. Just when you think you know exactly how everything is going to play out BAM you are left shocked and surprised. The author did a great job at giving us the unexpected that's for sure.

I really enjoyed this book and if you are looking for a sweet second chance romance than this is for you!
