I love second chances stories and this was a happy surprise for me. The first third of this book really captured my attention as a reader by acknowledging Aidan and Sam's past together, while fully embracing this second chance.
The next part of the book became real - a long distance relationship, coupled with the memories of Sam's deceased lover Nick, really took this book to places that were uncomfortable and unresolved. This part might not appeal to some readers, but these were real struggles to me and I appreciated we saw the remoteness each of them had in this relationship. (view spoiler).
Overall, an enjoyable read and I'll be moving on to the next in the series :D
