Leah Vasquez and Victoria Lockwood should not fall in love.
They’re smart enough to know a star-crossed lovers’ situation never works out. Leah’s a loner, working two jobs and aching to leave their sleepy hometown in her rear view forever. Victoria lives in a mansion with her overbearing parents, surrounded by friends and known to none of them, living what others consider a charmed life.
Leah Vasquez and Victoria Lockwood should not fall in love, but they do.
Five years after their scorching summer romance flames out, Victoria returns home to visit her dysfunctional family, fiancé in tow. She’s surprised to find that Leah had never left town and astonished to discover the feelings still between them.
Leah Vasquez and Victoria Lockwood definitely should not fall in love…again.
Of course, even if Leah can open her bruised heart to the only girl she ever loved, Victoria must make a life-changing choice—love safely or love bravely.

Silvia M. - …Their story is beautifully written, and the epilogue is quite different than the usual, a much-needed glimpse into the future, especially when we’re looking at such young MCs. This is TJ O’Shea’s second book and it’s already close to perfection, very excited to see more from this author.
Cori W. - This is a must-read for anyone that loves a good romance, especially top tier lesfic. It's also my first book by the author, so I'm going to now go read Beyond the Blue and eagerly await her next title while also suggesting this book to other lesfic lovers! A solid 5 out of 5 stars.
Teddy T. - Ooh this book gave me chills! It's a coming of age, second chance romance that's beautifully written. Though lots of second chance books dip into the past throughout the book, slowly revealing the first romance while the second unfolds, this book gives us both in full. We see the entire beautiful love story from the past and then the present. There's lots of chest-clutching angst, but it's all appropriate to the story—no frustrating miscommunication—it's all a logical, heartbreaking, bittersweet, part of their love story….Highly recommend.
Carol C. - This was a wonderful love story.… A very powerful read which was beautifully written.
