Publisher's Summary

Does being nobody's fool mean that you're nobody's love?
Colleen O'Rourke is in love with love…just not when it comes to herself. Most nights, she can be found behind the bar at the Manningsport, New York, tavern she owns with her twin brother, doling out romantic advice to the lovelorn, mixing martinis, and staying more or less happily single. Ten years ago Lucas Campbell, her first love, broke her heart - an experience Colleen doesn't want to have again, thank you very much. Since then, she's been happy with a fling here and there, some elite-level flirting, and playing matchmaker to her friends.
But a family emergency has brought Lucas back to town, handsome as ever and still the only man who's ever been able to crack her defenses. Seems like maybe they've got some unfinished business waiting for them, but to find out, Colleen has to let her guard down or risk losing a second chance with the only man she's ever loved.

I have mixed feelings about this one!

Story begins with a high school romance and first time love for both Lucas and Colleen. After high school, Lucas leaves for college and they keep a long distance relationship but then they separate due to misunderstandings and unmet expectations. Lucas ends up having a one night stand after he believe she has moved on and ends up impregnating the girl after their one and only sexual encounter. He marries her but she leaves him after eight years. Two years later his uncle who raised him finds himself dying from cancer and asks Lucas to go back and be around him for his last days and to help his cousin settle before his father passes away.

I liked the book but also found it unsatisfying at the same time. She is supposed to be so mature and good at guiding others through their relationship issues and yet she has a childish and immature side to her equally as strong. Lucas could not make up his mind about what he really wanted out of his relationship with Colleen even the second time around. Colleen was initially very mad at him and still resentful but then seeing how sexually irresistible he was decided to shag him anyway knowing she would get hurt when he left for Chicago. hmmm. But then we get the bomb dropped on us. The book went from describing Colleen as someone who had sporadic sex encounters to being the town slut and well known for it. HUH????. How did that happen? I am not saying she should not be having fun but from what we hear throughout the book to what is sprung on us toward the end is a BIIIIGGGG stretch. Wow. I did not like that turn of events again not because I am being judgmental but because it almost seemed forced and an after thought to get the story going.

Another part I did not like about the book was that he never told Colleen he loved her and yet was supposedly in love with her but then did not leave his wife after the miscarriage and WAS able to tell her he loved her while he was still in love with Colleen. SOOOOO confusing and stupidly complicated.

So I'd say save your credits for something better. Not a bad story but not great either.
