Miri just won the lottery, which is the answer to her dreams and the solution to so many of her problems, except one—her husband, Leo, who walked out on her eight years ago and never came back. But now with her jackpot win endangered due to Leo’s right to legally claim half of it, Miri is forced to track him down and finally ask for the divorce they’ve both been putting off. Miri thought she’d never get over her heartbreak or want to see him again, but when she finds Leo back in their hometown of Greenbelt, SC, she can’t resist falling for him again, despite serious and deep-seated reservations. Leo, as handsome as ever, and with hard-won new maturity and wisdom, is determined to gain Miri’s forgiveness and her love once more—this time forever.
VERDICT This contemporary romance set in the South is an immensely sexy and emotionally tender story about second chances, community, and family. Although it’s a stand-alone novel, it takes place in the same town as Slaughter’s previous rom-com, Bet on It; both first-time readers and her fans will enjoy.
