A sweeping, second chance standalone romance!

I was pretty good at living without regrets until a way too close call during a skydive. Instead of my life flashing before my eyes, I saw one face, one regret that’s been gnawing at me ever since—Presley. The woman I loved madly ten years ago. The woman I had to walk away from.

At first, all I want is to sort out why I can’t get

Is anyone else other then me tired of every darn 2nd chance romance being a 10+ year separation? Ten years in which Hero gets to live out his life forgetting all about the heroine while heroine struggles through, and in most cases is frozen.

Is it asking too much for authors to come up with something more original? I can respect 6 months or a year seperation, but ten? That's a whole lifetime and only acceptable if the MCs were 10 or 15. Come on already!!!

Deliciously sweet! Lauren Blakely has penned a refreshing and irresistibly sweet, sexy and swoony story in which she introduces a historian and an explorer who ten years ago had a whirlwind romance but then set out to pursue their dreams separately.

Following his father’s advice, Hunter Armstrong has been living his dream, living to the fullest for the past ten years. He’s a highly successful adventurer, survivalist and author but after a very close call on his last jump, he saw his one regret fl

WOW! Devoured this beauty in one sitting!!! Gorgeous and heartfelt second chance romance. Unique story of an adventurous handsome hero meet nerdy sweet art historian. Presley is smart, quirky and adorable. Hunter is the swooniest hero. He made a huge mistake when they were younger but all the groveling was sweet and worth every minute. It’s fireworks between these two and they have to work side by side on a project – oh how I love the banters. I really enjoy the exciting treasure hunting part of ...more

This was an entertaining second chance romance! Hunter and Presley, who after an intense, but brief romance, reunite 10 years later on a project for work. The reason behind the separation isn't my favorite, but I'm always a sucker for a second chance romance. Throw in a little forced proximity, humor, and mystery and I'm sold. I really liked the treasure hunt aspect woven into the story and it was fun watching Hunter and Presley follow the clues and reconnect with each other. Hunter does unfortu ...more

5 star review of P.S. It’s Always Been You by Lauren Blakely
This is a second chance at love story for Hunter and Presley and one that I read in almost one go. I was intrigued by the story and totally invested in a story that reminded me a little like an Indiana Jones story line and I found myself riveted as the hunt for lost treasure began.
Brought back together by circumstances, Presley has never gotten over Hunter leaving her for a mysterious job and now ten years later when she is struggling

This story will leave your heart floating on air and put a spring in your step. Hunter and Presley fell in love but he left town to chase adventure after adventure. Fast forward 10 years and what you thought was one love story becomes a love story within a love story. Edward and Greta share their love story and both stories are told beautifully through Lauren's imagination. I found myself crying for the difficulties Edward and Greta endured and holding my breath for Hunter and Presley. I know yo ...more

** ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. **

I was pleasantly surprised by this story, utterly charmed. Presley and Hunter had shared something strong for six months meeting on the road, and turning probably into something more until the moment Hunter broke her heart.
Then, ten years later, the man she couldn’t forget came back into her life. The successful tv star, adventurer and survival expert was more sexy and charming for her own good.

I completed this book last night and waited till this morning to review it. Thank God I did it as I am happy to realise that my thoughts are more clear about the whole story.

Earlier I was about to give it 4 stars for the emotions put into it. The whole concept of a second chance after ten years is alot to process. I flowed with the story and then realised that it was more than Hunter and Presley's story. Rather there was a beautiful part where two lovers are shown unite

It’s Always Been You features two overlapping storylines that span decades. Hunter Armstrong and Presley were young lovers when he decided to leave to pursue a once in a lifetime job offer; and although they parted ways, they never forgot one another.

I’ve read everything Lauren Blakely ever published and each one is original with fabulous and often witty dialogue, character growth, deep soul searching, and strong, smart heroes and heroines. It’s Always Been You is another five-star read for me!

This book just didn't work for me. I never felt the chemistry between Presley and Hunter and that shocked me since I've read every word Lauren Blakely has ever written and I'm usually head over heels for her couples.

I will say that the secondary story, if you will, concerning a couple who leave love letters to each other as part of a scavenger hunt that our couple partake in, had me captivated! I've said for years that I've wanted Blakely to write a story from another time and I'm hopeful she mi

Great second chance romance for Hunter and Presley. They spent 6 romantic months together and she thought they would be together forever but that was not the case. Fast forward 10 years and they are brought back together on an amazing scavenger hunt. You will get two romances in this story and fall in love with both couples, old and new. Loved this read. I highly recommend this fun read to find an escape.

I read an early review copy of this book and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

PS It's Always Been You: A Second Chance Romance is the story of Hunter and Presley .
The prologue gave how this couple broke up due to Hunter taking a job on a expeditions to Alaska and breaking up with Presley over the phone. Hunter in their present day knew that his one regret was letting Presley go so when he got the second chance to be with her he went for it.
I enjoyed their second chance at love story.

I’m gonna make this short because I don’t want to go on and on. I’m a fan of this author’s work. I’ve #oneclick’d almost everything she has every written without even reading a synopsis. That being said, I’m not a fan of the choices the author made in the set up of the second chance in this story or the why behind why we have a second chance in the first place which rolls right into the choices she made for the hero. The story is well written and not even remotely outside the realm of possibilit ...more

Couldn’t connect with the characters and didn’t actually care if they ended up together or not. Was missing the usual Blakely humor and sass. After walking out on the h after Valentine’s Day for a once in a lifetime opportunity, the H does everything he can to forget her and admits he did.

What as a$$. I was already over the book and this was only in the first 1/4 of the book. He didn’t redeem himself as the book progressed either.

A standalone, second chance romance with a fun archaeologist expedition component mixed in. When you've lost the love of your life and she is, for lack of a better term, a treasure hunter what better way to win her back than to go on a treasure hunt. This is the heart of P.S. It's Always Been You. Hunter and Presley solve a century old love story, while they piece their own hearts back together.

A heroine that’s all about romance and a hero that finds himself wanting to give her everything her heart desires...yes, you have another Lauren Blakely story. 

Once upon a time, Hunter and Presley thought they might have a fairytale ending. But alas, the Hero turned out to not be the Charming Prince.  Hunter gave Presley hope only to dash it away, with a harsh goodbye.  

The years have been good to Hunter. He’s reached success beyond his wildest dreams. But one turn of events has him re-evaluatin

P.S. It’s Always Been You is a sweet, second chance romance from Lauren Blakely. Presley and Hunter dated about 10 years ago. They had a brief relationship, which ended pretty abruptly, with Hunter leaving without notice, leaving Presley heartbroken and angry. Hunter is an adventurer, living his life to the fullest. When he starts seeing Presley’s face in all his death-defying stunts, he realizes he has some regret and needs to see her. As fate would have it, a work project falls in
So the dance continues!

Hunter and Presley are at it again.. but I feel like Hunter could do a lot better this time around. Every chance he could've put her first.. didn't really happen. I mean, sometimes yes.. but ugh, if he really wanted her back he would've done it all the time. Poor girl.

Then there's Presley, who went way too easy on him. Ugh, girl.. don't be the bigger person! Make him grovel a bit more before giving him the goods! I will, however, deal with everything that has happened.. b

Presley and Hunter were madly in love and willing to try to tackle a New York to Alaska long distance relationship. However, when Hunter gets a job offer that will take him halfway around the world with little access to phones and internet, he doesn’t think they can make it work. He ends up breaking both their hearts.

Ten years later, they find themselves face to face again and working together. The more time they spend with each other, the more they realize what they shared

Presley and Hunter had a secret whirlwind romance years ago, but Hunter's work led him to a secret assignment and he didn’t think a long distance relationship would work with his plans. Over the last few months he has been rethinking his choices, wondering if he will regret that mistake for the rest of his life. Presley has tried to ignore news of Hunter, as she tries to pick up her flailing career. Her dreams have not taken off nearly as fast as Hunter’s, and it is hard for her to see
