Her high school sweetheart–the one who broke her heart, not once, but twice–is now a respectable cop. He’s back in town and wants another chance at love.
Taysia Green nearly chokes on her water when Officer Kylen Sumner shows up in her office claiming he’s back in town because he loves her. Since he’s broken her heart more than once, and she recently started dating youth pastor Blaine Pittman, she wants absolutely nothing to do with Kylen. But he’s been asked to stand in as the mediator between Taysia and wannabe model Sophia Clinesmith, who twisted her ankle in the parking lot of Taysia’s business and is threatening a lawsuit.
If she didn’t need him to help save her gym, Taysia would tell Kylen to take a long midnight walk on a short cliffside trail.
She’s perfectly happy with her life just the way it is.
So why is it that just the sight of Kylen Sumner sets her traitorous heart to dancing faster than it did the time Blaine kissed her?
my point of view:
One of my very favorite tropes is second chance at lost love….even before I ever knew love on a personal level! So naturally, I adored this story from the very beginning. This is the first book I have read of Lynnette Bonner’s, and I was very pleased. Taysia is absolutely precious in her own way, she had me laughing and crying right along with her!
Kylen is a force to be reckoned with, for sure. He has made up his mind there is no way he is letting Taysia go again…..unless that is God’s will for their lives. I especially liked how Taysia knew she truly never stopped loving Kylen, but was fearful of having her heart broken again. It’s only when she finally let’s God be in control that she breaks down her walls….but of course, even then there are still bumps in the road ahead for them!
Each time these two main characters interact is entertaining in itself! Add all the secondary cast of the story and it makes for an excellent read! I am definitely looking forward to reading more about Marie, Reece, Blaine and hopefully Brice too!
As I heard just recently, it’s not always about the destination, but more about the process of the journey! I believe that is one of the reasons I love to read Christian fiction so much, we all kind of know where the destination will end up, but – oh the journey!! Thank you, Lynnette, for taking us readers on this glorious journey!
About the Author:
Born and raised in Malawi, Africa. Lynnette Bonner spent the first years of her life reveling in warm equatorial sunshine and the late evening duets of cicadas and hyenas. The year she turned eight she was off to Rift Valley Academy, a boarding school in Kenya where she spent many joy-filled years, and graduated in 1990.
That fall, she traded to a new duet–one of traffic and rain–when she moved to Kirkland, Washington to attend Northwest University. It was there that she met her husband and a few years later they moved to the small town of Pierce, Idaho.
During the time they lived in Idaho, while studying the history of their little town, Lynnette was inspired to begin the Shepherd’s Heart Series with Rocky Mountain Oasis.
Marty and Lynnette have four children, and currently live in Washington where Marty pastors a church.
