After a not-so-chance encounter places her back in his line of sight, he’s locked eyes on target, and won’t let her go without a fight. Ten years ago their chemistry smoldered, and now the sparks threaten to light a fuse leading to an explosion between them even Jace can’t control. Not that he wants to.

Will Alexa’s fear of love and loss destroy their second chance at a beautiful future before it can even begin?

My Review

I originally read Alexa and Jace's story soon after it was published the first time. I really enjoyed it then but as I reread it for the second time, I fell for it even harder. They have a powerful second chance romance that left me breathless and with all sorts of warm fuzzies. I loved that even though they had challenges to face, they never wavered in their love and devotion to each other once they reconnected. After spending 10 years apart, they both lived lives filled with other things and other people, but together they still fit perfectly. 

Alexa has spent he last 18 months reeling from her husband's death and the last words he ever said to her, "I really hate you sometimes." Knowing that no marriage is perfect and that her husband really did love her, hasn't made her grief and guilt any easier to bare. When her sister Sierra decides that she needs a push in the right direction to get her life moving again, she talks Alexa into coming to her and her husband's 10 year high school reunion as a babysitter for their daughter Ava. But when Alexa gets a call from her long lost best friend turned first love turned first heart break, Jace, she realizes that maybe Sierra is up to something. 

Jace has spend the last 10 years in the military going from one woman to the next and one deployment to the next without forming any attachments. When he realizes that his best friend and the one that got away is going to be at his 10 year reunion, he decides that he is going to get her to fall back in love with him. He spent all of high school falling for his best friend but after their one night together he had to leave for basic training. When life got in their way and he saw that she married someone else, he knew he needed to stay away so that Alexa could be happy. Now knowing that life had other plans, he's determined to show her that he is her perfect fit and alway has been. 

I am such a sucker for a swoony second chance romance and this book delivered everything I needed and wanted. Watching these two become friends again and eventually more had me sighing and contentment and anxiously awaiting the time that they both realized how perfect they still were for each other. Filled with a bit of angst, lots of laughs, and some heartbreakingly sweet times yet still pulling on my heartstrings until the very wonderful end, Alexa and Jace have gone to the top of my favorite book couples. 

After having been reintroduced to Sierra and Jeremy as well as their sweet girl, Ava, I am so excited to read their story, Fusion. Knowing that not only will I get to see them grow up but also get to see a young Jace and Alexa, I can hardly wait for their story to unfold. Plus I'm feeling the need to reread the other books in the series especially Incinerate which is Jace's best friends Knox's story because I adore seeing big strong men being brought to their knees by their perfect match.
