When we were eleven, Oliver Ford Pemberton dared me to jump off a barn roof. He said you couldn’t break a leg from a 12-foot-jump.
(You can also break a collarbone, which served him right as far as I was concerned.)
I wish I could say it was the last dare I ever took from him, the last bet I ever made with him, the last time I ever trusted Oliver Ford Pemberton.
But it wasn’t.
Because he had the nerve to grow up gorgeous, charming, and sexy. And as we got older, the dares only got dirtier—and the betting stakes higher—until finally, he left me in pieces. I swore I’d never talk to him again.
But twenty years after I took that flying leap, he’s back in my life, daring me to risk everything for him: my job, my self-worth, and my heart.
How many chances does love deserve?
I wish I could say it was the last dare I ever took from him, the last bet I ever made with him, the last time I ever trusted fucking Oliver Ford Pemberton. But it wasn’t. Not even close.
Chloe and Oliver grew up together, they were born days apart, their mothers are best friends. Chloe and Oliver were rivals, friends, and enemies throughout the course of their relationship. They dared each other, they placed bets, they fought. The tension between the two of them was off the charts and ultimately ended up in Chloe being completely shattered and hating Oliver forever….or so she thought.
I LOVED this second chance romance. Chloe and Oliver’s tension/chemistry led to AMAZING banter between the two. Their chemistry was undeniable. I loved the flashbacks throughout the story to learn more details about key points in their relationship, whether it be good or bad. There is a little mystery surrounding Oliver and his true intentions when it comes to Chloe and the real reason he wants her back.
Chloe is an amazing heroine. She is strong, she can throw the punches back to Oliver and I loved that about her. Oliver, he took some getting used to. He comes across as the rich arrogant kid and he kind of continues that throughout the story but he does eventually redeem himself at times.
I was completely hooked on this story from the very beginning. It is a fantastic second chance romance that is full of chemistry. This is MUST READ book!
