Us, Again

by Elle Maxwell

47952877._SY475_About the book: It’s really him. The former love of my life. The man I gave everything to, who broke me so badly the pieces never healed back together properly.”

Graham Wyatt might be 6’2” of irresistible muscled, tattooed, angsty Alpha male (and don’t forget the man bun)—but sorry, ladies! He’s a one-woman man. Specifically, Mackenzie Thatcher, the love of his life whose heart he broke 5 years ago. Now that he’s out of prison (yes, prison…it’s a long story) he’s determined to redeem himself and prove he’s reformed his bad-boy ways so she’ll give him a second chance.

Mackenzie, on the other hand, has vowed off love forever. She’s already experienced excruciating heartbreak, and she has no intention of ever getting near that particular fire again…especially with the very man who burned her in the first place. She’s perfectly happy being a badass independent woman, thank you very much. That is, until seeing Graham again stirs up feelings she doesn’t know what to do with (besides a little quality time with her B.O.B.).

She’s not going to give in easily, but he isn’t afraid to play a little dirty. (Like that time he showed up to her yoga class and took off his shirt…) Graham is determined to do whatever it takes to win her back, even when some drug-dealing demons from his past show up and threaten the progress he’s starting to make.

Can Graham keep from repeating his past mistakes and find redemption with the woman he loves?

This contemporary second chance romance from debut author Elle Maxwell is a full length novel that is a standalone with no cliffhanger.

This was a cover buy for me! Looking at the cover I expected a light contemporary romance mostly told from the girl’s point of view, but it was the opposite. I didn’t expect it at all. Was it good? Yes! Did I enjoy it? Totaly!Great book about a second chance romance.

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK 

I’m looking for companionship and compatibility, not passion. Passion is nothing but a temporary high that eats your brain cells.”

————————————–
The sight of her hits me, and I am suddenly afflicted with every single romantic cliché.
Heart racing? Check.
Breath taken away? Check.
Vision narrowing until I only see her? Check.
Weak knees? Check
—————————————-
I turn my attention to my new nemesis, AKA the lucky bastard she wore that outfit for.
—————————————
(My resume is going to be stellar … short and sweet, a line for “MA State Prison Inmate, Accessory to Murder” followed by “Mackenzie Thatcher’s Stalker.” Who wouldn’t hire me?)
————————————–
When a woman orders you to do something while bawling her eyes out, you do the damn thing. I suppose I’m lucky she didn’t tell me to jump off a bridge or wear a tutu, because at the moment I’d do anything if it had a chance of calming her down.
————————————-
“Twenty minutes,” Shaina consents with a look and tone that screams ‘mom’ that I’ve seen countless times from my own mother. Perhaps it’s part of some standard hormonal programming that’s automatically downloaded into women when they give birth.

#LifeHack: Need to get past a power-hungry bridge troll? Wave something shiny in her face.
