Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Something Old is a saccharine-sweet second-chance romance. On the same day that her second divorce is finalized, Scarlett sees her first husband, the hunky Thor-like god she married after a one-night-stand in Vegas and promptly divorced.

When fate keeps putting Lachlan and Scarlett in each other’s orbits, she can’t help but give in and give Lachlan a second chance. Their chemistry is electric, and even though she doesn’t want to date again after her current divorce, being with Lachlan is so easy and natural, she wonders why she didn’t give him more of a chance the first time around. Lachlan, meanwhile, wonders why he didn’t fight harder for Scarlett after their one night together, and isn’t going to let another chance slip through his fingers.

There is some drama between Lachlan and Scarlett due to her stalker ex-husband, and the teenager he mentors through the Big Brother program. Some of it, I felt, was forced and didn’t seem organic in keeping them apart. But it does force them to talk things through.

Overall, this was a sweet second-chance story. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
