The Aldridge brothers are handsome. Alpha. Also passionate and absolutely chaotic together. We are introduced to them in Love You Once an engaging story about larger than life siblings.
Sometimes unforeseen circumstances can change the path of your life. For detached doctor Hayes Aldridge, it brings a chance for redemption, an opportunity to right the wrongs of choices long ago made. Hayes is open about past failures and his hurtful behavior toward his brothers and ex Blaire. He is also very cle

I mean first of all … I don’t normally give plot points away of any kind but I have to tell you this one thing … so our leads, Hayes and Blaire, have history. Hence the second chance trope.

Hayes and Blaire hadn’t seen each other in 12 years. It took his dad passing away for them to see each other again only it wasn’t a coincidence. Blaire still held resentment towards Hayes but deep down they still loved each other. Not only did Blaire have to deal with Hayes but also his 5 brothers and they all had animosity towards each other. But 3 of the Aldridge brothers were very fond of Blaire and always liked her. The road to their second chance was slow and it wasn’t rushed. They had othe ...more

Loved You Once (The Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers #1) was a deliciously swoon worthy, refreshing, sweet and heartwarming second chance romance that I absolutely needed in my life right now. This charming and delightful book will pull you in deep and keep you blissfully entertained until the beautiful end.

Hayes is the first Aldridge brother to start off this series and what a perfect way to do so as Claudia Burgoa made it very easy to fall in love with him and Blaire. I couldn’t get enough

Hayes and Blair have history, and it’s not all good. But when Hayes father forces him, his estranged brothers, and Blair to come to his hometown to live together, they’re all forced to face the past and deal with everything.

This was a great read, and I loved the Aldridge brothers and all the other characters brought to life in this new series. Definitely recommend!

Loved, loved this second chance romance story. The is the first book of the Baker’s Creek, Oregon, Billionaire Brothers series about half-brothers—this is brother Hayes and Blair’s story. This is a story about love. This is a story about forgiveness, trust and healing. This story is about a slow-burn romance. It was outstanding; it was such a great read!

"My Star. My heart. My love."

We have the very first installment in The Baker's Creek Billionaire Brothers series and boy does it ever set the tone for what's to come with the rest of the sexy brothers.

Hayes and his brothers are all the products of a philandering, cheating father. They are most definitely one big dysfunctional family and now dear ol' Dad has screwed them over ever in death. They must all move to Baker's Creek and live together for eighteen months. This also includes Hayes' ex

Very good start to a series. In this story, Blair and Hayes were college sweethearts that were thrown back together after 12 years apart. Their chemistry was amazing. But, there were lots of interesting characters. Can't wait to see how it all plays out.

I loved all the Aldridge brothers!!! Can you say hot alpha males that are so diverse you can't help but fall in love with all of them. Hayes and Blaire's story is a perfect second chance romance. If second chances are your jam then you will definitely enjoy this one. I am eager to read more from The Baker's Creek Billionaire Brothers series.

This brand new series by Claudia Burgoa will have you intrigued if not falling in love with each of the Aldridge brothers. Hayes, the oldest kicks off the series. Blaire is a strong heroine and I absolutely adore her. She’s quirky to Hayes’s nerdiness. The pair have stolen my heart. This book will have you all up in your feels. Loved You Once is the great start to what will be an amazing small town series starring the Aldridge brother’s. This second chance romance is one not to be missed!

Claudia Burgoa's phenomenal writing never fails to express the most delicious, heartaching, heartbreaking and intense emotions perfectly. Also her words never miss the target. And that is my heart. Loved You Once was a gripping and mesmerising tale of second chance and new beginning. And I fell in love instantly, hopelessly and easily.

Alridge brothers ( technically half brothers) have few similarities. A billionaire father who was always absent and never loyal to their moms. Twisted bringing ups

This looks like the start of a brand new series from Claudia Burgoa, so Loved You Once is the place to begin! This story opens with Hayes Aldridge, a successful man, looking back at his life as one half of a young couple in love, parted under angry circumstances 12 years prior and haven't shared a kind word since. How he still regrets leaving her even now.

Unexpectedly, here they are again- Blaire Wilson, our spunky, independent leading lady and Hayes Aldridge, the hunky doctor who made her heart

Once is Only the Beginning

Loved You Once is a beautiful second chance love story. It is filled with flashbacks to first love and of burgeoning, brotherly bonds. Both relationships are shattered and only a tragedy leads them back to one another.

Ms. Burgoa does a wonderful job of building backstory that will help to catapult this series forward, while simultaneously spotlighting the love between Hayes and Blaire. Their relationship was severed, but their hearts never let go. This is a story abou

When a family of half-brothers are brought back together by the one man they all hated (their dad) it's all hell breaks loose. These brothers really don't like one another, but are thrown together after the death of their father.

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to dive in to an awesome new series about six billionaire brothers. They share the same father but have different mothers. Yeah, William Aldridge was a dog, as well as a crummy human being. Aside from a few weeks here and there, the brothers didn’t grow up together, so it’s no surprise that William's death is the thing that reunites them.

This family dynamic is the most messed up I’ve ever seen, and it doesn’t bode well for peace and harmony that these alpha me

Second chances, stardust, dessert for dinner, and family...

Hayes is feeling increasingly dissatisfied with his life. He has work. His meddling mother, who he loves, but he is tired of her quest to fix him up and give her grandbabies.

And he knows the emptiness he feels will only be satisfied by one woman. His late brother's widow...and his one true love.

Then he finds himself receiving a call requesting his presence at his father's deathbed and so begins a bumpy ride with all the Aldridge brothe

The start of another great series. This one is about the Aldridge brothers and what they have to do to fulfill their father's will or a town could go to ruins. In order to receive their inheritance (which none of them really wants), they all have to live together in their father's house in Baker's Creek for 18 months and help run the businesses there and the factory in the next town.

What a second chance romance! Hayes and Blaire are reunited after 12 years. There is no denying the chemistry between the two. but there is a lot of hurt and resentment between the two they need to work through. I loved Hayes and Blaire from the start. Hayes is dedicated to his work but when faced with the challenge of leaving everything and being there for his family and a town he knew it was the right choice. He is sweet and thoughtful. Blaire mission in life is helping people. Sh

Loved You Once (The Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers #1) by: Claudia Burgoa  
Another sad love song finds the heart to be happy. Loved You Once is a tale of battered emotions, bruised egos and finding the courage to fight heartache back from the brink of despair. Hayes and Blair are one regret short of a happy ending. Will they have the courage to turn what if, into forever after romance? Burgoa dares to be vulnerable. Blair and Hayes are perfectly, flawed. Haunted by the past. Fearful of the
