DEBUT This debut features an angsty second-chance-at-love romance between its twentysomething protagonists. Both raised in foster homes in a rough Atlanta neighborhood, Sam and Lucy once meant everything to each other, until Sam confessed to a crime he didn’t commit. Lucy couldn’t get past his confession. But despite a decade of other commitments, neither has ever moved on from their once-in-a-lifetime love. Sam comes back into Lucy’s life just as she’s finally ready to marry a man who will give her the stability she’s always craved and help her succeed at the career she’s always dreamed of. Boxing champ Sam has his work cut out for him, coming up against Lucy’s need for “normalcy” and her love for the family she’s found. But he’s fought hard before and this fight is one he has to win. That Lucy is already halfway there with him makes it both easier and harder, as she’ll have to break a lot of hearts to make her own whole.
VERDICT Readers who appreciate seeing their couples struggle to grow up and grab their HEA while overcoming difficult circumstances will need tissues as Sam and Lucy fight their way back to each other.
