Now Emmaline Carson has settled into her career as a graphic designer, though she'd rather be painting or shopping with her sister Layla. But then - in the years before she went to art school in Paris - she was a shy, awkward teenager with frizzy hair, a flat chest, and a massive crush on the boy across the street, Cole Marlowe. Too bad her incredibly hot neighbor only had eyes for Layla.
Cole is now a confident, laid-back attorney who's even hotter than he used to be. He's planning to stay single while working his way up the corporate ladder - until he's knocked off course by a chance run-in with Emma.
Everything is different between Cole and Emma now. He finally sees her in a way she only dreamed of, and their hot chemistry is fueled by a growing friendship. But Emma's deception of her sister - who wants Cole for herself - and the secret Cole's been keeping for more than a decade threaten to tear apart what's only just begun. Because sometimes the only thing standing in the way of now is then.

Loved Now and Then
Not a bad story, just didn't wow me.
I usually like second chance but I found myself not truly invested or engaged with the characters. To be honest, I can't recall their names even though I can recap the story. I think what I liked about this one was the fact that they knew each other from way back when, but didn't feel their chemistry as much as other readers have. It wasn't a bad story at all, it just didn't capture my interest. I'd totally try another book from her though. Her writing is solid and I'm anxious to try another book with perhaps a different trope.
