Maybe This Time – Janine Gallant

Adam York attends his twenty-fifth high school reunion hoping to see his old running pal, Chloe. Her absence hits him like a punch to the gut even though there’s no reason why it should. After all, they’d never been more than friends in high school. Still, he’d hoped maybe this time…

 

Chloe Lane walks off the set of Get Lei’d with her dignity in shreds but the armor around her heart firmly in place. After a series of disastrous dates spawned by her brush with reality TV, she swears off men altogether. Until she runs into her old buddy, Adam, on the course of the Lake Tahoe Marathon.

 

Attraction sizzles between them, unexpected and disconcerting, threatening their friendship with the promise of something more. While Chloe battles her fear of commitment, a man from her past lurks in the shadows. Will she risk her heart before it’s too late?

 

 

From the very beginning, I loved this story. It was a sweet romantic tale with a great heroine and a daughter that wanted her mother to be happy and find love again. The plot was well written and I loved the way Chloe didn’t get the chance to be at the reunion due to other commitments, but how she and Adam reunited farther into the story at the one place that took them back to their high school days — a running event. The dialogue was great, and not just between Adam and Chloe, but also Chloe and her daughter as well as other family members showing the close bonds they shared. What I liked so much about Chloe was that she took her daughter’s feelings into consideration and didn’t rush into a relationship with Adam. While with Adam, I liked his eagerness to get close to Chloe again. Well, what can I say? They were made for each other. Too bad it took them twenty five years to realise that.

 

Overall, I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait to read other books written by this author. Well done, Ms. Gallant.
