She’s the one who got away. He’s the boy she can’t forget…
They say you never forget your first love, but I’m determined to prove Keven Kennedy is just a random boy from my past.
It’s not like I still think about him after all this time. Or daydream about how hot his kisses were and what it felt like to have his hands on my skin.
Nope, that’s not me. I’m in a happy place in my life. Engaged to a great man and finishing the last year of my photography degree.
But since I returned to Massachusetts, everything reminds me of the boy who ripped my heart to shreds. Especially when my fiancé’s constant business trips, and dwindling attention, raises old fears to the surface.
And then the unthinkable happens—Keven saunters back into my life, turning it upside down once more.
It’s ironic he thinks he’s protecting me when the only one I need protecting from is him.
They say you never forget your first love. In my case, it’s true. Most everyone in high school thought Cheryl and I were a match made in heaven and that nothing could tear us apart. Until I messed up spectacularly and lost the best thing to ever happen to me.
Years have passed, girls have come and gone, but no one has laid claim to my heart in the way Cheryl did.
I thought she was lost to me forever when an unexpected encounter with an uptight FBI agent, and an intriguing proposition, brings the beautiful blonde back into my life.
I didn’t hesitate to sign on the dotted line.
I let Cheryl down once before. I’m not going to fail her this time.
“No one else ever measured up to you, and, even if I had found someone worthy, how could I be with her when I’m still madly in love with you?”
Keven Kennedy and Cheryl Keeland knew each other, and then dated in high school. They were very much in love, until one stupid mistake in senior year…a mistake that should NEVER have happened. Now Keven is faced with a decision to work for the FBI… but all he sees is an opportunity to save Cheryl and to tell her what he should have told her senior year! Time to win her back! Is this fate?
I loved Keven!! He is right up there with Kyler for me!! He is such a devoted, loyal person. When he loves someone, they mean EVERYTHING to them!! He was never able to date someone after Cheryl, because he was still in love with her. He had his random hookups, but he never took them home. He went to their place or to a hotel. And it’s funny because at the beginning both Keven and Cheryl talked about how Keven never spoke romantic things, that just wasn’t who he was. Well, i guess the keyword here was WAS, because he sure was romantic as the story went on and it was pretty freakin swoon worthy.
As for the suspense, it was so much fun in this book. There were times i was yelling at my kindle “hurry up, he’s coming”! There were some pretty shocking and intense scenes. I’m telling you, this woman writes everything really well!!!
I loved seeing the Kennedy family together, which we always do. There were a couple big events in the book, full of Kennedys!! So Cheryl was able to see the family again, but the extended family too. It has really grown. I was thinking in this book, how when it all began it was just Faye coming to live with the boys and their parents. Now look how it has grown!!! Wow!! Then when Cheryl saw the triplets and mentioned them being as tall as Kyler and Kaden, I was like our young triplets are seniors and going to college next year?? In fact their books will be next!! I don’t want it to end, but it cant go on forever, although there’s ALWAYS spinoffs!!
Anyway, I freakin LOVED this book and I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!
