Love burns hotter the second time around…
Two years ago, the medical world was shaken by scandal, and Payton Daniels’s family was at the center of it. The second she graduated, Payton left everything behind—her high school sweetheart, her family, and the controversy surrounding her mother’s death—and hid within the anonymity of college. But Payton’s ex, Blake Hiller, hasn’t forgiven her for leaving, and when he enrolls in the same medical ethics class, she panics. She can’t run the risk of him telling everyone who she really is.
As if being at the same university isn’t enough, both Blake and Payton land the same internship. Forced together, their passion for each other reignites, but when Payton is asked to testify in her father’s high-profile trial, she must choose between risking her acceptance into medical school to help her father, and losing every connection to her past—including the only guy she’s ever loved.
"Quick, fun, angsty new adult with an intriguing concept!" ~ author of Full Measures, Rebecca Yarros

Blake is the ex boyfriend she left behind when she ran away and he just happens to be in her medical ethics class. He knows her secrets and who she really is. I enjoyed... ...more

A bit of fresh air is what I would say about this book. Yes, it is about second chances but the story is unique. Premed isn’t in most stories. And the scandal that rocked Payton’s world is different. Not many books would touch assisted suicides. Being a nurse myself, I was intrigued to say the le... ...more

I straight-up LOVED this book.
What romance reader isn't at least a small fan of second chances? This book, though, this book wasn't just about second-chance-romance (SCR). It was SCR, with a sprinkling of mystery, a dash of sexual tension, a pinch of "oh no she didn't!" and a healthy dose of "aww... ...more
I had the privilege of being a beta reader for this wonderful NA debut.

This story embodies everything being a new adult is like—something... ...more

I enjoyed this book for the most part. The writing was good.
