    I dont wanna go back, Zora. It wasnt me saying it. The words took on a life of their own, slid past my mouth, crawled, arrowed to her. Not without you. I want you back. I want us back.

    Im trying to be an adult. Im trying to be a professional, a colleague, your friend, as much as it hurts. Isnt that enough? Her voice cracked and she closed her eyes as she sighed out, Havent you taken enough?

    Been there done that is a beautiful, heart warming second chance romance.

    Nick and Zora were childhood sweethearts who life separated. Their story is character driven. As the story goes on, you are given insights into pieces of their past and the misunderstandings that accompany any love young story, especially one cut short. That being said- This story was absolutely unique and I never felt like our characters, past or present, were immature. They became mature far before

    A very well written second chance love story with great characters and interesting ways to find their happily ever after.
    Its a slow burn romance about two lives that even after many years apart cant get over their love for each other.
    Im always looking forward to going back in the Green Valley and to have read about that Easter egg that Im so intrigued its a big bonus in this book.
    Cant wait to read more books by the author because she goes straight into my favourite list.

    Nick and Zora forever! Where has Hope Ellis been hiding? She wrote such a fantastic book that kept giving and giving. One of the best Smartypants series for sure. I need the next one stat! And oh Jackson James how I loved you in this book.

    There is so much to love about this book.where to start?

    The Writing

    If this is Hope Ellis first novel then I am SO, SO very impressed with this woman because she can write. This did not read like someones first foray into putting pen to paper. The writing flowed

    I received an ARC for an honest opinion.
    What a beautiful and very realistic love story. I loved the journey both of these characters took. This is the first book I've read by this author and it definitely will not be my last. I recommend this book and this author.

    Oh my goodness, I like these Leffersbees. (Maybe not Zora's sister all that much, but I figure she might have a few redeeming qualities under her drive, pushiness, and ambition, so I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.) I might not agree with everything Zora's parents did in keeping the truth from her, but I also understand where they're coming from. The situation with Nick was sticky and they all did what they thought was best at the time.

    That said, Zora is what I would term a

    I definitely feel like I walked away from this book having learned something, cementing itself as a Smart Romance. In this book's case, we learn a lot about the communication or lack of it between healthcare workers and patients. I love that Zora's mission to provide an easier open channel of communication.

    This was a second chance romance, and while I felt a lot of angst and drama between Nick and Zora was because of their unwillingness to communicate and be honest with each other, we still get

    For twelve years, I've walked this earth missing my other half, afraid to hope that you'd give me another chance and make me whole again. You're the only woman I want.

    Been There Done That is Nick and Zoras second chance at happily ever after and a strong debut novel by Hope Ellis.

    Zora and Nick were best friends as children, and that friendship grew to love. They planned to spend forever together, until one night changes everything. Now, twelve years later, Nick is back and has some explaining to

    I can't even begin to explain how much I loved this book!! Fake relationships, childhood sweethearts, second chance romance oh this book had it all!! It genuinely had me gripped from the very first page!

    Zora and Nick were childhood sweethearts. They challenged each other, grown up together and they knew from a very young age they had something special. They were soulmates, until one tragic night that changed everything.

    Twelve years later, Nick reappears. Where has he been all this

    I really liked Zora and Nick! The book had me cracking up! The only reason its a three star instead of a four star is that I found myself getting bored with the story and putting it down and not going back to it right away. I wish you got more of the story with them together. I just thought some parts were drug out that didnt need to be. I felt the book focused more on their jobs and their relationship was secondary. It was a very well written book and I would still recommend the book to other ...more

    Nick and Zora were inseparable and made plans for the future until fate stepped in and Nick and his mom suddenly left. Now 12 years later he is back to get Zora back forever. Sometimes life throws us curves but some people just belong together and these to do!!
