Sixteen years is a long time to wait for your true love to reappear, and, anyway, Nicki Johnson couldn’t wait for the impossible to happen. Hard life lessons have taught her that fairy tales are children’s stories, and fate is cruel. Burying her hopes, she’s spent the last sixteen years focused and driven toward her career, and it’s landed her with a job at the White House with a gem of a boyfriend. But when her high school love, Adam Kincaid, walks into the White House as a BBC reporter, Nicki’s world is thrown into turmoil as she relives their past. Adam has come back for her, but has he arrived too late?
I was provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
The moment I finished book one, Beside Your Heart I was counting down the days until the follow up. To say I was excited for the continuation of Adam and Nicki’s story is an understatement! The connection between Adam and Nicki is beyond words. Many times I have read stories where high school sweethearts gets a second chance at love. Adam and Nicki were beyond high school sweethearts, they were soul mates. Their story is so much more than your typical high school students in love. This was not your average second chance romance. It is much deeper than that.
It has been sixteen years since Adam and Nicki were last together. They are now adults, working in Washington, D.C. working in politics and journalism. The moment they see each other, you could feel the chemistry coming off the pages. Adam and Nicki never stopped loving each other, and it was apparent in their first encounter. The problem? They are both involved with other people.
As much as I love the angst of love triangles, I will say that I am glad that the author did not do that with these two individuals. I really enjoyed Adam and Nicki as characters. They were mature in high school and the same as responsible adults. Watching them fall in love again, was breath taking. My heart went out to them both as they have spent so many years apart. Because of their jobs and circumstances, the thought of being together was something they both had to think about. Is true love worth risking it all?
I enjoyed the author’s style of writing. This story was very well written in that there was just enough detail in this story where the steam, romance, and angst were well balanced throughout the story. I loved getting to know Adam and Nicki as adults. They were such passionate teenagers and I enjoyed getting to know them as adults. It made me feel a part of their journey. Overall, I would recommend this story to anyone that believes in true love. That true love withstands it all. I look forward to more of Adam and Nicki’s story.
