First love can’t come second.
A stand alone second chance grumpy sunshine romance about Josie & Maddox by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…
Maddox Nelson is the only boy I’ve ever loved.
And the only one to break my heart.
I thought I was over that long ago. After drowning the heartbreak in two failed marriages, I should want safe and easy, and Maddox is nothing but complicated.
Now that I’m back home in Savannah, I can’t deny the pull toward him. He’s the grumpy to my sunshine, the introvert to my extrovert, the uncompromising to my go with the flow. But years of friendship, love, and tangled lust binds us together in the city where it all began.
When heat flies between us, he makes it clear that we already had our chance. Both of us should move on.
Except I’m no longer okay with that idea.
I’ll prove to him that I come second to none.
Like the others in the Coastal Chronicles Series, KA Linde manages to write a beautiful, heartbreaking masterpiece of angst. The back and forth between Maddox and Josie is a maddening rollercoaster of emotions. The story goes back and forth between the present and the past, and the years jump around as their story slowly unfolds. It’s hard to keep it straight in mind, chronologically, but it all comes together in a whopper of a reunion for this couple, a brilliant grumpy graphic artist and the television star he’s loved since they were teenagers.
The secondary story with Josie’s mother left me speechless. How that dovetailed with healing the relationship between Josie and her mom, as well as her mom and her dad, and sparking Josie’s next career move was brilliant.
Second to None takes place at the same time as Hold The Forevers and At First Hate — I loved seeing scenes play out from Josie and Maddox’s POV. And the nuggets that were dropped between Amelia and Ash left me wanting their book pronto!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
