Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Love is a risk. If you lose it all, would you dare to risk it twice?

Hannah Rogers is lost: cynical, insecure, and withdrawn. Skeletons forged through a bad breakup that should have been a marriage proposal. Now four years later, Hannah follows her dead-end job to the big city where her only hope is to survive the next eight months as her flirtatious boss’s personal assistant. The last thing her predictable life needs is to collide with the boy responsible for breaking her heart, or the twist of fate that sends a sexy new neighbor to awaken feelings she’s long since put to bed.

Alex Sorrento doesn’t have any room in his life for another pet project. He’s already put aside his career and his personal dreams to follow his half-sister Mackenzie to the big city. Lost in the guilt over the events that nearly took her life, he feels he owes her that much. When Mackenzie befriends the new girl on the second floor, Alex finds himself defenseless against the sizzling chemistry between them and the sadness in her eyes. Can he protect Hannah from her ex without losing his heart?

In this turbulent journey about self-discovery, forgiveness, and love, some second chances aren’t worth taking, but others have their own rewards.

My Review:
After reading the synopsis I thought, I so want to read this. It seemed like it was going to be a good read for this year and I was really excited about it.

It took me awhile to get into it and had a long time finishing it I found that Hannah’s character to way to cynical for my liking but I sympathized with her and understood where she was coming from. As for Alex and Mackenzie I really enjoyed their characters.

Starting from lost was a well written book. S.K. has an amazing talent as an author, sometimes I couldn’t connect with this book, but for sure I would be on the lookout for more upcoming books by this author.

My Rating:
