Is your first love worth a second chance…?
Colleen O'Rourke is in love with love…just not when it comes to herself. Most nights, she can be found behind the bar at the Manningsport, New York, tavern she owns with her twin brother, doling out romantic advice to the lovelorn, mixing martinis and staying more or less happily single. See, ten years ago, Lucas Campbell broke her heart…an experience Colleen doesn't want to have again, thanks. Since then, she's been happy with a fling here and there, some elite-level flirting and playing matchmaker to her friends.
But a family emergency has brought Lucas back to town, handsome as ever and still the only man who's ever been able to crack her defenses. Seems like maybe they've got some unfinished business waiting for them—but to find out, Colleen has to let her guard down, or risk losing a second chance with the only man she's ever loved.
I always love reading any of Kristen Higgins novels so much. It always has it all from comedy to passionate to steamy romance. This story was no exception to it. Colleen is the go to romance advice person to her friends, but she has a heartache that makes her resistant to relationship. She is happy with casual flings in order to avoid the heartbreak from her past. However, her past is coming back, Lucas. Lucas still has the charms for Colleen but it will only works if she let her guard down. This couple are so adorable that it makes the read so much better. Plus, we get to read some humor to it that it makes everyone laugh.
