As they renew their friendship he finds he’s falling hard, and can’t accept any less than all of her. Samantha realizes there’s hope with Lucas. Will she finally have a chance to be happy with the man she’s always loved, or will obligations and insecurities stand in their way? Can Samantha and Lucas convince each other that they belong together? That it was Always You?

4 Stars - Would Recommend to a Friend
I didn't need to worry! The way Ms. Rose told Samantha and Lucas' story, I couldn't help but cheer for them both and root for Samantha's marriage to be a thing of the past. This story is lighter than Only You (the connected follow up story), but still emotional. You are pulled into the story and can easily put yourself in the characters shoes as they move through the challenges they face. This is definitely a book I wish I had read earlier and recommend.
