Scarlett and Lachlan's story was very good. The characters are strong, the chemistry between Scarlett and Lachlan is off the charts, and I love the banter. The storyline was something I haven't read much and I enjoyed a change of pace. I look forward to more in this series. ...more

I thought Something Old was a really good story it would be the second story that I've read by the author and I can't wait to read more . From reading reviews and by reading the book I found out certain secondary characters had their own book and I am excited to read those stories . I'm a huge fan of covers I love when an author describes a character perfectly to fit the cover model that way the reader has a clearer view of the hero or heroine this on fit Lachlan perfectly .

Scarlett may be a successful businesswoman but the same can’t be said for her personal life. Her first marriage was a spontaneous affair in Vegas that ended the next morning and her next marriage with a man who should have been perfect for her but that couldn’t have been farther from the truth. With her second divorce just finalized the last person she expected to run into was her first husband or that the chemistry and connection between them would be stronger than ever.

I'm really enjoying Liz's writing, every new story she brings something new. This was a fabulous tale of shedding the old and re-visiting past dalliances. Scarlett and Lachlan met and married in Vegas one drunken night, quickly had it annulled... years later after Scarlett has divorced for the second time Lachlan turns up again and the sparks once again fly. But is it too soon, with everything she has going on, a burgeoning business, a vengeful ex and a dad who thinks she should give her ex Crai ...more

Scarlett and Lachlan's chemistry was off the charts in this romance novel for me!

While I haven't read many of Liz's novels, you best believe I'm going to get started on that right away, because her characters are so enjoyable to read, and she makes you really feel as if you are part of her novel, and the journey her characters take to find their one true love.

This second-chance romance is definitely one I will be reading again!

I loved every romantic word in this book

I have long been waiting for Lachlan Rodger’s story after meeting him as Jase’s older brother in her college-aged My Guy series. Jase described his professional NFL playing brother as a popular and well-known ladies’ man, but when Lachlan made an abstract comment about having someone special once, and letting her go, I noted to myself that I’d love to find out more about him as a character. Finding out that Author Liz Lovelock was releasing a new series fe

Scarlett Albright's life is kind of a mess right now, but she has every intention of getting it straightened out. First she must deal with the clingy ex-husband that can't let go and her overbearing father that is insistent she reconsider her divorce. Then if that isn't enough men to deal with, she runs into her first ex-husband and the sparks between them remind her how much she really liked him.

Lachlan wants a second chance and she wants to give him one, but moving on so soon seems like a rea

"The pure pleasure of his kisses. They're worth it. He's worth it."

4 Second Chance Stars! Beautiful story full of heart and passion!

Scarlett is a successful business woman but she's not successful in the the love department. Her first marriage was a whirlwind that ended in divorce and her second marriage that she thought was perfect, ends up in the same fate. She never thought the minute she finalized her divorce to her second husband that she would run into her first one..

This was a decent read. I did enjoy most of the story and the characters. This story shows that some mistakes turn out to be the best thing to ever happen. Of course, it takes some time for Scarlett to realise this point. Or at least, one of her past mistakes was good. The other, not so much. Lachlan is a sports player which can sometimes mean that they are arrogant and self-involved but this isn't the case here. He actually cares about others like Levi and Scarlett. He wants another chance but ...more

Something Old is a saccharine-sweet second-chance romance. On the same day that her second divorce is finalized, Scarlett sees her first husband, the hunky Thor-like god she married after a one-night-stand in Vegas and promptly divorced.

When fate keeps putting Lachlan and Scarlett in each other's orbits, she can't help but give in and give Lachlan a second chance. Their chemistry is electric, and even though she doesn't want to date again after her current divorce, being with Lachlan is so easy

Scarlett may be successful in business but when it comes to relationships her life hasn't gone to plan. She has just brought the curtain down on marriage number two and managed to bring the slime ball down a peg or two in the process. Enter ex-husband number one again. Lachlan. The sexy god-like man she married in Vegas and ended it the next day.

Lachlan and Scarlett are very similar in the fact that they have very controlling fathers and that the chemistry and attraction between them both is st

This was such an enjoyable second chance story...the two main characters have a brief but interesting past together, and when they become reacquainted, their mutual attraction is every bit as obvious as it was previously.

There’s so much to admire about Scarlett: she is an independant, strong, successful business woman, but boy does she make poor relationship choices. Lachlan is equally successful in his career as a star Quarterback; plus, he’s drop-dead gorgeous. I love the to and fro between t

I received a free ARC copy of this book from the author prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was a really awesome story. Its a bit different with the whole one night in Vegas got married and divorced trope and it was so much fun. Scarlett has just been divorced from hubby #2 when the story begins. She ends up catching a guy who looks just like her one night Vegas husband, Lachlan and guess what it is him.

The two had a really wonderful one night marriage in Vegas before they

What a fabulous story, a great start to what I can tell is going to be an amazing series. I love all of the characters, well okay not the mean one, and especially the fun banter and easy camaraderie between them. Lachlan and Scarlett are both terrific as individuals but together they are the bomb, their chemistry is incredible.

Mixed into this wonderful love story is a thrilling tale of nastiness and spiteful vindictiveness. I love how you never know just what is going to come up next

This is the 1st book in a new series and what a great beginning Lachlan and Scarlett’s journey is. Scarlett is a successful businesswoman but her personal life is a mess with two divorces under her belt. Lachlan is a star football player, and he and Scarlett had a steamy night in Vegas and ended up married, only to decide 24-hours later that this had been a mistake. Lachlan always regretted letting Scarlett go so easily and when fate lends a hand and they meet again he is determined to get a 2nd ...more

I'm a fan of Liz Lovelock's writing but Something Old just missed the mark a bit for me. It's not to say that I didn't like it because I did, but Scarlett was a bit too much for me. She's a successful career woman, but her personal life isn't all that great. Lachlan is the man she married in Vegas for funsies & ran its course by the next morning (you know how it goes), but fate has seen fit to bring them face to face again. He was super sweet in my eyes but she was always ready to throw down whi ...more

Scarlett has just ended her 2nd marriage and she is embarrassed. Her attorney and best friend has supported her through them both. What a surprise when ex-husband number one turns up in her world. They were young and stupid to get married while drunk in Vegas so never even got to know each other. Can Lachlan convince her to give him a chance?

This is my 2nd Liz Lovelock book and I am really enjoying her work so far. The author gives us a bit of mystery to go with a sweet second chance. It was eas

4 years ago was Scarlett's first divorce waking up after a drunken Vegas wedding to a stranger named Lachlan.

Today was her second divorce. Walking out of the courthouse after divorcing Craig her cheating now ex-husband, with her lawyer and bestfriend Vivian.

Scarlett has always been a workaholic so throwing herself into her work and swearing off men was meant to keep her free from making bad choices again.

Unfortunately running in Lachlan once again only re-egnighted the memories the passion that

It’s more like 3.5 ⭐️’s, not quite 4 though. There is a very strong storyline here, and the beginning is also strong. However, once you get past the first couple of chapters, something is missing. I didn’t feel much passion between Lachlan and Scarlett, I think they would’ve been better suited as best friends. Lachlan is just so sweet and always understanding, where Scarlett is always on a war path in a way, always expecting the worst. And I guess that’s normal given her history, but it was too ...more

Liz Lovelock has done it again! I loved Something Old! Book one in The Jilted Series; Something Old tells the story of book publisher, Scarlett and NFL player, Lachlan and their second chance at love. It is a story filled with fun banter, great characters, and some super sexy hotness; add in a glimpse into the foster care system, tough family issues and a spiteful POS ex-husband and Liz really knocks it out of the park with Something Old. I enjoyed this story so much that I literally read it in ...more

So Scarlett may be a awesome when it comes to her professional life but y'all chick is a hot mess express when it comes to her personal life. I gotta say I was not expecting her 1st hubby to pop back into her life and y'all he isn't gonna let her go without a fight this time. Scarlett being reserved and but also making decisons way to quick makes her friends pull her back in. I will say that I took half a star because parts seem super slow but the problem seem to just disappear. Im glad

Second-Chance romances are sometimes hard for me to get into, but this book is pure gold. I absolutely LOVED Scarlett and Lachlan. Can you imagine running into your first (Gorgeous) ex-husband the same day you are finalizing your divorce to your second? Scarlett is strong and independent. Just how I love my heroines. Lachlan is hot and sweet. The perfect combination. I cannot say how much I love this book.

This was my first time reading a Liz Lovelock book and I enjoyed it and will read the rest of her books.

The premise of the book had me intrigued from the start and I read it in one setting.

The characters were likable and had chemistry. The storyline flowed nicely.

It was a quick read which can be read in a couple of hours.

Oh Scarlett and Lachlan were so perfect together. Newly divorced Scarlett runs into her random Vegas Husband, and feels like she’s over men all together. Lachlan is convinced she is the one that got away all those years ago. Of course with all this Scarlett’s second husband wants one thing and that is her. This is a great second chance read, and I promise you will fall in love with these characters so easily. I can’t wait for book two in the Jilted Series. New fan of Liz Lovelock’s, and I can’t ...more
