An ex is an ex for a reason
To Rebecca Winters, it’s not just a saying or the title to a catchy tune, it’s a rule she staunchly lives by. Especially since the break up with her ex. What’s the point in trying to fix the “unfixable”? Besides, only a girl hell-bent on more heartbreak would go back to the guy who bailed on her when she needed him most. But saying no to Scott is becoming more difficult than surviving the breakup itself. And unfortunately for her, the kind of pressure he's exerting is making her rule all too easy to break.
Scott Carver has given up trying to get over his ex. He’s still in love with her and their year apart has done nothing to change that. Yeah, he knows he screwed up. Just how royally, he wasn't aware of until now. So when Becca agrees to give him a second chance, he grabs on to it with both hands. But it’s clear the only way things will ever truly be right between them is if he comes clean…about everything. He can only pray the truth doesn’t send her running—for good this time.
Although this is a novella, this is truly a well-developed story with intriguing characters and a great story about second chance at love.
Rebecca and Scott have a past relationship. One that ended after Becca called things off, stating that things were moving too fast. And the story starts after their break-up, with Becca running into Scott again.
Scott has never gotten over Rebecca and he wants to win her back. He is sincere, upfront about his feelings and the mistakes he made that led to their breakup. There is an obvious connection to what these two share and Rebecca decides to give him another chance.
No sex. At least not right away.
With sex out of the picture, they can work on the foundation of their relationship and make it stronger than it was in the past.
But there is no denying how strong the sexual side of their relationship is, either. And when Scott and Rebecca join friends to go skiing in Montreal, things get very, very, steamy between them.
"Scott." My feeble protest ends on a moan when his hips rock against mine."Say it," he demands in a low sexy voice, his breath hot against the side of my neck. "Admit you want sex. Don't make us both have to suffer."Aching breasts, pebbled nipples and the collecting moisture between my thighs has my body urging me to choose orgasm and mind-blowing sex over a romance novel. Another rock of his hips against mine leaves me gasping and dizzy with desire My choice could not be more obvious.
But can the past come back to haunt them? Will Scott's secret about who he is and his own past destroy the last shred of hope for their second chance at love?
Beverly Kendall packs a lot in such a short story--but it is well written and beautifully told. I look forward to reading more of her works in The Language of Love series.
