Sixteen years is a long time to
wait for your true love to reappear, and, anyway, Nicki Johnson couldn’t wait
for the impossible to happen. Hard life lessons have taught her that fairy
tales are children’s stories, and fate is cruel. Burying her hopes, she’s spent
the last sixteen years focused and driven toward her career, and it’s landed
her with a job at the White House with a gem of a boyfriend. But when her high
school love, Adam Kincaid, walks into the White House as a BBC reporter,
Nicki’s world is thrown into turmoil as she relives their past. Adam has come
back for her, but has he arrived too late?
I do have a soft spot for Adam. Not only is he British, he keeps to his promise of finding her when they are in their 30's if they are not married. Nicki is in politics and has a hectic life. But once she see's Adam, she can't help but feel that buried love she left behind so many years ago. After the last book, I had to read the next book. I feel you get to see more of who Adam really is.
Feelings die hard when Adam is her first love. Despite all the changes in life, you can't help but go back to the beginning. Adam is a favorite of mine. And would love to see a book from his POV.
Liked the book, liked the first book. You really have to read both to get the full story of Nicki and Adam.
I rate the book a 4.3. A 4.4 for both books together.
