We fell in love like stars falling in the sky. Carelessly and quickly. We burned furious and bright despite the different roads life held for us. But we still made promises.

Promises we didnt realize were too big to keep.

Now Im back. Determined to talk her into giving me another chance. I know better this time. No promise will be too big to keep because life only makes

It was just meh but... but I give points to the author for writing a loyal hero. I didnt like the reason he broke up with the heroine in the first place but I understand why he thought he was doing the right thing for her.
But really that endearment in Spanish was very weird. Calling her mi niña linda made me feel icky. My beautiful little girl. Because niña is little girl in English.

If you believe in the forever kind of love than this is the story for you. No matter what happens, no matter where life takes you love will always prevail especially in a Mayra Statham book.
This story is about true love and second chances and its 100% safe.
My only issue (which is very minor) is that I wish the flashback and letter was in a different font or even italic. It blended into the rest of the story and took me a second to realize what I was reading. Overall, this was a great start to

I'm in all honesty not a big fan of novellas as they really have to grab my attention and make me 'experience' the book - which is incredibly hard to do in a short amount of time. This book unfortunately did not suck me in. It plays out over a short period of time and is often written in a second person style. It's sweet in a predictable romance fashion. The storyline is cute if that's your thing. I personally prefer a bit more angst and excitement.

I adore Mayra Statham's books! She gives you the perfect novella each and every time. Her characters are unique and fully drawn. Its like you know them and you have a front row seat to their happy ever after. Nina and Brandon met the summer after high school graduation. It was love at first sight but they had to part. Brandon assured her it was only for four years, that it would be over before she knew it. He lied and broke up with her two years in. Now, she is graduating from college and she ...more

Can you meet your soul mate when you are so young and have not experienced much of what life has to offer you? Brandon certainly thinks so. He knows that he let the one get away and now he is ready to fight to get Nina back into his life. This is their story and boy what a story it is!

Mayra Statham delivers a book that is straight to the point and focusing on two people that have been hurt but maybe have a second chance. There is not much angst, but it didn't need it replacing it with real

5 MORE MINUTES is a pleasant, second-chance romance about Brandon, recently finished with his commitment to the Marines, and Nina, the new recipient of a college degree. They were each other's first loves, and after high school, found themselves drifting apart due to their life choices. Will Brandon and Nina find their way back to each other after taking their own separate paths?

There isn't much conflict or external plot, but 5 MORE MINUTES manages to be a quiet read, both sweet and sexy, and

Short, sweet, and superb!

5 more minutes is the story of first loves and second chances.

Brandon meets Nina the summer before he heads off to the military, and she goes away to college. The two promise to make it work, but the distance is too difficult for them and Brandon ends their long distance relationship. When he shows up at Nina's college graduation with the hopes of getting her back, and permanently, the two reconnect with each other. Of course, as standard in Mayra Statham books, the

Even if youre not a fan of the second chance romance, this one deserves a read. For one, we dont have a guy who went full-on whore after breaking his womans heart. And for another, Brandon is NOT taking no for an answer from Nina. Hes never stopped loving her and now hes back to make sure she knows that...and that she remembers who shes meant to be with forever.

Brandon and Nina and their return to us is a sweet, happy story of just how a second chance can be even sweeter than the first. I cant

Can't I just have 5 more minutes of Nina and Brandon? They were such a wonderful couple!
Nina didn't believe in love at first sight until she saw Brandon for the first time. There was an instant connection. They always wanted 5 more minutes of time together. They couldn't always have it though. Nina had to go to college and Brandon joined the military. When Brandon returns, they have to decide if they can still can still have a future together, or if too much time had passed and they missed

Short Sweet and Steamy second chance romance. Brandon and Nina fell in love over the summer after graduation but prior commitments have them going their separate ways. 4 years later Brandon is done with the Marines and Nina has graduated college he is back to win her back and admit he never stopped loving her and he was wrong to end things. Loved every bit of this story and can't wait to read more from this series!

I received an ARC and volunteered to leave a review!

I enjoy second chance romances and this one was great!

Nina and Brandon had a summer full of love when they know Brandon has to report for basic training, their 5 more minutes needs to last.

As time and distance cause heartbreak they move on with their lives.

The time is now right for Brandon to make his move. To fix what broke. Will Nina be open to seeing him?

This was a sweet second chance romance. Look forward to Sam and Macie's story.

My heart!

Oh. My. Days!! This author is amazeballs at second chance stories and this is no exception! My heart totally melted as Brandon sets in to motion, his plan to get Nina back.
Theirs was a love that was instant, burning brighter than the sun, one that Nina thought could survive anything and then Brandon ends it.
Now he is back, determined to get Nina back, will he have his work cut out or does that love still burn as brightly as it did two years ago?
All the FEELS!!

A short, sweet and addictive read. I was pulled into this story pretty much immediately. The chemistry were very likeable and had amazing chemistry. The story although short had plenty included to keep my interest. I can honestly say that I loved this story from start to finish. I'm looking forward to reading the next one.

This is another,it's me thing. Safe, neither with others during separation although the h went on three dates with three different guys that all ended in a handshake. He broke up with her 2 years into his deployment, not one call or text within that time. He shows up and poof they get back together within about 24hours.

This is the start of Mayra Stathams new Timeless Series and its a cute start.

Nina and Brandon met right before she was starting college and he was starting his career in the military. It was love at first sight. They promised each other it was only four years. They swore theyll be OK and can handle the long distance.

For two years they made it work. Texting, calls and FaceTime. But, when life got in the way they spoke less.

Brandon ended up breaking up with Nina. He
