Some loves last for just a short time, but ours lasted a lifetime.
From the moment that Emma met Ryan, she knew he was the one for her, but he leaves her heartbroken when he betrays her and disappears from her life, only to return and shatter her heart for a second time.
We were never meant to be, we just happened against the odds.
It feels like fate when life throws them back together as adults, but Emma has moved on now and she can’t throw everything away for the man who left her heartbroken twice.
Emma is living a charmed life with a beautiful family and her art career beginning to take off, but she can’t help feeling like her heart is pulling her back to her first love.
I keep on coming back to you.
One chance encounter with Ryan, so unexpected that it feels like it was written in the stars, throws them back together and she can’t deny the connection between them is stronger than ever. Emma learns that Ryan has been keeping a secret from her, and she has to decide whether to turn away from him forever or keep fighting for their love against all odds.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
First love and second chances told in a believable, engaging way. Emma meets Ryan when she is young and impressionable. A jealous friend and a family drama split the couple apart. Ryan is always there, in her peripheral memory, her soulmate but is he?
The story is full of ordinary life events with a cast of memorable characters. Strong friendships and serendipity characterise this heartwarming story. The final twists are heartbreaking and a surprise. The ending is realistic and makes the best of cruel circumstances.
