Sometimes you just never get over that first love….and luckily, you get a second chance. Jamie has not left the safety of the tiny island she grew-up on in 10 years. 10 years ago, Jamie suffered a traumatic event that changed the course of her life as well as everyone who loved. Emmitt Deal was Jamie’s high school boyfriend and her first love. When Emmitt comes back to town to help his dad get ready to sell his family home, Emmitt suddenly finds himself volunteering to take over the old school house project that Jamie is in charge of for their upcoming 10 high school reunion. Jamie finds herself coming out of her protective shell that only Emmitt could help release her from. Emmitt left the island to escape his past. Not only has he returned to help his father fix-up the family home before it is sold, he wants to build his relationship with his father, something his missed out with his mother before she passed away, by escaping to the mainland.
First Love Again was a sweet second-chance at love again story. Jamie never fell out of love with Emmitt but by his support and love once again, she is able to make changes in her life that she has been needing to make for a long time. First Love Again started a little slow for me but once Emmitt arrived back “home”, I was hooked. The book dealt with realistic emotional and situations. It was a enjoyable contemporary romance with a HEA ending.
