Kim's Review:

If we're going to go through life not giving anyone a second chance, what kind of life are we going to have?

Noah knew the first time he saw Jules on the swing when she was six years old and he was eight that she was meant to be his. They grew up together, were best friends, fell in love, but it was all ripped away....

Fast forward to present day:

Jules: Victim of an abusive mother, strong, independent, insecure, fearful,  kind, beautiful, and damaged. 

Noah: strong, successful, loving, intelligent, passionate, protective, and supportive. He knows what he wants and will do anything to get it. 

A Surprise reunion under unlikely circumstances  leads to a possible second chance.  

We finally locked eyes and in that moment in time it was like we had never been apart. Ten years, heartbreak, loss, everything was forgotten and it was just Noah and Jules. 

I want this to be our second chance Jules. I won't let anyone or anything stand in the way of that. After spending all those years thinking I would never see you again, I can't go through that again. I won't. So, no matter what happens as long as I have you nothing else matters. 

"Please don't leave me again...I need you in my life Noah. It's not the same without you."

Fear, anxiety, trust, and outside influences make it difficult. There are plenty of obstacles....jobs, fear, past misunderstandings and hurt, a fiance', some exes,  school scandals, allegations, threats time constraints, and family issues all  wreaked havoc on this couple. At first the problems arising for the newly reunited couple seemed to be resolving too quickly and I thought maybe there was not going to be enough interest and drama in the book. But this poor couple kept getting slammed with roadblocks that got progressively more difficult to deal with and to keep it together. They seriously could not catch a break. 

"Noah, please don't make me fall for you if you don't plan on catching me."
"I'll always catch you baby. Always..." 

All along I adored Noah and his unwavering love for Jules. He was so sweet, so patient, so completely adoring and sure of his feelings and that he wanted a future with her. Now Jules I wanted to shake for much of the book due to her insecurity, fighting, denying, and running behavior. But she did have her heart in the right place most of the time and was trying to do what she felt was best for Noah even if it was to her own detriment and loss. She feared she was not enough for him and does not want him to settle. 

We were made for each other. At the same time I loved him enough to want what was best for him, even it was killing me. 

They did have a great support system of friends and some family. I absolutely loved her best friend Ellie and his best friend Jackson. They were flirty, funny,  completely protective, and outspoken. And they had their own part in this story. 

I was really pulling for this couple to make it through the minefield they were thrown into and come out okay. I left with a resolved ending and a smile on my face. It was not easy getting there though. This was a really sweet story about a likeable couple going through some bad situations. 

Please do not judge this book on any previous poor reviews from when it was first released. It has been re-edited and deserves another chance. I really enjoyed  the story and the characters.
