Can he stop the one who got away—
from getting away again?

Everyone in her Alaskan town hopes Iris James is back for good. Including Dr. Flynn Ramsey, who stole her heart when they were awkward teenagers. She realizes he’s planning an encore, but a prestigious job in Washington, DC, is calling to her. Only, ever since their kiss at her brother’s wedding, Iris isn’t sure about anything. Except her reignited feelings for Flynn…

My Review:

Iris James is the youngest of six kids and a 1/3 of a set of triplets. She is very different from the rest of her siblings who are more outgoing and adventurous and have always been and more so than she will ever be. Iris sees stopping back home for a visit in Alaska as a brief stay on her way to her dream big city job. What she did not count on was reconnecting with Dr. Flynn Ramsey who was her high school crush.

Flynn has had a rough upbringing and made a mistake in marrying the wrong woman. He has come to the conclusion that he really should have sought a relationship with Iris instead of all the messed up ones of his past. However, those previous relationships have changed him for the better and his view on life and he wants forever after with Iris. Unfortunately, he loves Alaska and she doesn’t.

I enjoyed watching their relationship grow from friends to something more. Flynn always had a plan to talk to her or kiss her and something would always get in the way of that. Iris is very unsure and insecure of herself. I like that we get her reasons, which have to do with her past and bullies at her school. I enjoyed the close knit family dynamics of the James clan and understand that there are previous books with their stories.

All in all this was an enjoyable contemporary read of two friends finding a second chance and love with each other.

I received a copy of this book from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

About the Author:

USA Today bestselling author Carol Ross grew up in small town America right between the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Mountains, in a place where you can go deep sea fishing in the morning and then hit the ski slopes the same afternoon. The daughter of what is now known as free range parents, she developed a love of the outdoors at a very early age. As a writer, Carol loves to breathe the life she has lived into the characters she creates, grateful for the “research material” that every questionable decision, adrenaline-charged misstep, and near-death experience has provided.
