Save My Heart by Rhonda James is a second chance at love romance. Do you ever really forget your first love? The emotions. The memories. And what if things did not end well? Then you see them years later and wondered what if?
Scotty and Skylar were each other’s first love, but things did not end well for them. Now years later they are face-to-face again. Can they move past their history or is it too late for them?
Scotty has graduated and is ready to start his first season in the NHL. Life could not be more perfect. Or could it? He is happy to be achieving his goal, but he sees those around him and wonders if he is missing out. Scotty has always been the one looking out for others. Though he can come off at as a jerk, we get to see a different side of him as well and learn what made him who he is. He has only ever loved two women who could not be more different from each other. And now he finds himself at a crossroad.
Skylar loves her job, until she gets her next assignment, which puts her in front of the man who broke her heart years ago. I found Skylar to be determined, kind and loving, but after being hurt by someone she loved, she is very cautious about opening her heart. Her insecurities and background left her guarded.
During the story, we get flashbacks to their history. You see their connection from the start and how that chemistry is still there years later. But can they find a way to let go of the past and see what the future can hold for them?
I found Save My Heart to be emotional at times, but also fun and sexy read. There was humor, angst and friendships. This was a great second chance at love story with likeable characters you can root for.
