A sweet and emotional second chance romance read.
The Montgomery brothers’ bond was amazing and I loved how close they were.
Harrison and Laney’s story was romantic and beautiful, and they were perfect for each other.
Very well written with loveable characters.

CALLING ALL SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE ADVOCATES!!! no but seriously the angst and longing in this book... I may or may not have shed some tears while reading it

Harrison Montgomery has only had one great love and that is Laney Landers, his childhood best friend and now ex who cannot bear to be in his presence. Five years have passed since Harrison believed it was best to let her go, but now they're back in their hometown and Harrison won't stop unti

As always, Laura Pavlov never fails in delivering an enjoyable and entertaining novel. This was a second chance romance to remember which felt somewhat akin to a modern day version of "The Notebook" (house renovation and fiancé included).

This romance was steamy but really, it was more of a sweet and romantic love. I loved both of these characters and cannot wait for more of the Montgomery Brothers in the next novel.

I will say that I had some difficulty with how the fiancé was treated

5 stars for Harrison & Laney!

This was my first LPavlov book, and let me tell you, I am hooked! This was just the type of comfort read that I needed. Such a sweet second chance romance, and best friends to lovers also. Tragedy tears these two love birds apart for five years, but they find their way back to each other in the most beautiful and real way. This book made me tear up as I empathized with the characters, especially Laney and how hard it must have been for her to reveal all that was in h

I love second chance romances so as soon as I knew that the next book in the Montgomery Brothers series was Harrison and his one that got away, I was SUPER excited. And let me tell you it was one of the best second chance romances I've read in a while. The connection these two characters shared was just unreal, it was so special and beautiful. I fell in love with these two from the get-go. Harrison is such a special person. He's the sweetest, has the biggest heart. I felt so

*I received this copy in exchange for an honest opinion*

Personally, I really liked this second book in the Montgomery Brothers series. I have not finished reading the first one that brings us the story of Ford, the older brother of Harrison and Jack, but I think that each of the books in the series can be read separately, which will not affect the understanding of each one.
This second book brings us the love story of Harrison, the middle brother, and Laney Mae Landers.

Peacekeeper was a great second chance romance!

Harrison Montgomery and Laney Mae Landers were destined from Kindergarten or so they thought. Circumstances tore them apart but when Laney returns to town to be with her ailing Mother neither of them can deny their pull.

This book was such a feel good read. It hooked me from the start and I enjoyed reading about the Montgomery brothers again. This family has been through so much and many tough issues were addressed in this book. The sensitive topics w

This was my first Laura Pavlov book and I am hooked! It was a sweet second chance romance/best friends to lovers.
Tragedy tears Laney and Harrison apart for 5 years, but they find their way back to each other in a very real and beautiful way.

I empathize with Laney and can understand why kept everything bottled up over those 5 years. She and Harrison are very much alike in that sense, not wanting to hurt the one(s) they love the most.

This is a beautifully written story, and I can't wait to read m

I basically read anything under the best friends to lovers category and this one also had the second chance trope so of course I had to read it !! This is my first time reading this author's work and I'm in love with the writing and her characters. I loved the family dynamic in this book and how the brothers had this really special bond between them.

Laney was such a sweetheart but also a badass. After she got her heart broken she didn't just give up and she moved on and became stronger.
Harrison Montgomery has found himself uninterested in relationships since he ended things with the love of his life, Laney Landers. Now, 5 years later, Laney has walked back in to his life and he knows, he can’t let her get away this time. Old wounds are hard to heel though.

This second chance romance by Laura Pavlov sent me reeling in my emotions as I felt so much of what Laney and Harrison were going through. These characters were well written and you find yourself hoping things work out even

I was super lucky to receive an early copy of this book to review. This was Harrison’s story and man does it break your heart. So much heartbreak in this book, but in saying that there’s also so much build up and love to counter it. I love Har and Laney’s second chance. Laney had some things she was struggling with and it was written beautifully how she overcame them. Harrison is just has a heart of gold and you are definitely rooting for him to get his girl back!

When Harrison let Laney go, he knew he'd never get another chance with the love of his life. But now she's back to care for her mother. Is there a slim possibility she'll forgive him? Does she still love him as he's always loved her?

When Harrison let her go, Laney was devastated and hasn't come home for long periods. Vut now she's back to be with her mom and she knows she'll have to see Harrison. She hopes he's not expecting anything from her, certainly not a second chance, because he

I've got this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I've read the first book in the series Peacekeeper a while back and in-between I had a lot of different books too, so it was just a teeny tiny bit hard to remember what exactly happened in the first book, not that it mattered. But with the way Laura writes, within 2 chapters I was in and remembered it all.

The beginning of the book got me a tiny bit confused, as does every book, since there is a "story" already going and we get in. But

This is the second book in the Montgomery Brothers Series and is Harrison and Laney's story. I strongly recommend that you read the first book so you won't miss a lot of the family dynamics. The three Montgomery brothers are close and there's a lot of interaction between them. Laney and Harrison were sweethearts since kindergarten and true soulmates until he did something that split them apart and broke her heart. He knew it was best that he let her go five years ago.

Harrison and Laney's story was beautiful. Laney had a rough time after leaving Napa and I loved how her going home made her see the changes she needed to make in her life. It takes a lot of courage to stop and change the progression of your life and as the story goes on we see just how strong Laney really is. I loved Harrison and how open he was about his feelings in the sotry but not so open to his family until they pushed. He had a lot of grief to work through and I'm glad we got to see him gr ...more

I have been curious about Har-bears's story. He's the more grounded brother amongst the three. His story is even more emotional than Ford's story because he always has been the guy who kept to himself. And also because of what Laney had gone through after their break up. I like that their story shows more of the Montgomery family's support especially their mom. There's more of it compared to Ford's story. And Jack, as always, the teasing brother. I loved it!

I can't wait for Jack's story now!

Laura Pavlov has produced one of the best brother romance series I have read this year! The Montgomery Brothers are uniquely different but fiercely protective of each other and their mom after losing their father fives years before. All three brothers are still holding on to the pain of their loss, each are dealing it with it in a different way!

Ms Pavlov has managed even though each story can be read as a standalone is to involve all three brothers in each story; which I loved and which for me h

“Harrison Montgomery held all the memories of my past. Of both happy times and sad times. I always thought he was my forever. But things weren’t always as they seemed.”

This was such a sweet and swoony second chance romance. Peacekeeper is the second book in the Montgomery series and although this can be read as a standalone, I would recommend to read the first book “Legacy” to give you a backstory on the characters.

This is a beautifully written story filled with family, love and hope
