Learning to love the second time around - Richard Lowery and Janine Henderson are about to discover that falling for the second time can be hard. A disastrous early marriage and a bitter divorce have left Richard Lowery convinced that the single life is the only life for him. That's fully single - no dates, no girlfriend, no nothing. After the typhoon dramas of his early adult life, enough is quite definitely enough. Janine Henderson feels pretty much the same. Men are bad, boyfriends are worse and fiances are out of the question. Absolutely. After what happened last time, love is a game she's not prepared to play again. Sure, she's had a couple of flings - but they always get the push before she has to deal with anything resembling commitment. So, when the two are thrown together by a minor accident they are more than wary of the obvious attraction between them. Richard doesn't want to know - and Janine, though interested, is frightened by the force of her feelings. Richard doesn't seem to be a man she could push away so easily.The two of them are about to learn that love works in mysterious and unexpected ways - are they ready to overcome the heartaches of the past in order to find a future together?

Knowing she has no choice though she is worried about her seven years old daughter, Janine goes west to see Richard. He has not worked since his wife and their child tragically died. Janine has not trusted men since she realized her now former spouse not only cheated on her, but held her culpable that he did. Neither one is in the market for even a tryst let alone a relationship, but their attraction ignores the past though they emotionally cannot. Still as they fall in love, both must let go of their previous relationships if they are to forge something new.
This great second chance at love psychological contemporary drama stars two likable mentally "self-imprisoned" individuals. The story line mostly focuses on the growing relationship between Janine and Richard, but also provides some enlightening flashbacks to his deceased family. Readers will appreciate this fine tale cleverly enhanced by strong family members (her daughter, his widower father, and the ghosts of his late wife and child and her still living ex) as everyone will wonder whether the present can overcome the traumas of the past.
Janine Henderson is still recovering from a difficult divorce. After catching her husband cheating on her time and time again, Janine has vowed never to let another man hurt her. She puts all of her time and energy into raising her daughter and her career as a senior editor at a New York publishing company. Janine is not looking for love, just the second book due from Richard on his contract. Soon, there is a passion between them that neither of them can ignore. Can Richard and Janine let down their defenses and take a chance at love? Will love be better the second time around?
LOVE ONCE AGAIN has the potential to be a very good book. However, I feel that it lacks development of the main characters' relationship, as well as the romance and passion I'm accustomed to reading.
