Is the one you tried to forget the one you can't live without? Stella once thought that if she never saw Jack again, it would be too soon. But life has other plans for her and her stubborn, handsome ex-husband. Looking after their daughter in a time of need, Stella finds herself unwillingly reunited with the man she shared the best years of her life with - followed by the worst. Where tragedy once tore them apart, now Stella and Jack are being drawn back together. But each of them has a new partner and a new life. Should they fight temptation? Should the past remain the past? Or are some loves simply meant to be?


This was a good book, very moving and emotional in places. I do think the pacing of it was a bit weird, sometimes it felt like time was just dragging, other times everything seemed to be happening at once. It was kind of predictable but not in a bad way - the characters were acting exactly as you’d expect them to which ultimately made for an interesting romantic drama.

Rating: 3 / 5
