Five star read! Second chance romance done right. Holden is a little frustrating initially as he takes too well to the role of victim of circumstance. That being said, I adore Emylie from the beginning. Kelly Elliott has you rooting for this to work for them from the start. While Holden and Emylie might be pining for their lost love, they are not unrealistic in that they both have relationships, in whatever form, with other people, but are honest about their love for each other. Once Holden gets a clue (with a little help from friends and family) I loved taking the journey with them, and rooted for them to make it from the beginning.
