"When the world looked at Emmett, they saw confident, devilish, sexy. I saw cocky, spoiled, arrogant. Your typical all-American jock."
Aly Stanton hasn't seen Emmett Hoult in twelve years, following an epic falling out between them in junior year, which changed the course of her life. Growing up, they were constantly thrown together because their families were close, but he made her life unbearably miserable. When her living circumstances force her to move into his empty house in the Hamptons, she does so, safe in the knowledge that he's away all summer.
"Aly was back in my life and I was already hooked on her again...since losing her the first time was hard enough, there was no way in hell I was letting it happen again."
Emmett Hoult has led a gilded life. Things have always come easily to him - women, money, success, adulation. When he meets a beautiful, incredibly sexy stranger in a club, one night, the chemistry between is scorching! However, when he realises that it's his childhood frenemy, he's determined not to let her disappear from his life again, even though her intentions are the complete opposite.
"Loving you is the oldest memory I have."
I adored this novel! I loved the way the story unfolded and we get clues here and there about the past history between Emmett and Aly. Told from dual POVs, we get their different perspectives on how things were and how they viewed one another. We see Aly's childhood misery and her pain, but we also see what a smart, successful, confident woman she has grown into. We see Emmett's fondness for Aly and how much he cherished their childhood connection - so different from Aly's perspective.
The sexual connection between them was tangible and so freakin' hot! Their flirty dialogue was amusing and so diiiirrrrty! LOL. I loved how their truths and secrets were gradually revealed and how they both had suffered in the past. Their connection was amazing and borne out of their childhood history, as well as their adult chemistry.
This was my first read by this author. She has a fabulous writing style full of great dialogue, deep and credible characters, and super sexy scenes that has me definitely coming back for more.
Emmett gives off the impression that he is a hard nosed playboy but it’s not a life style he is happy about. There is a girl that he holds dear to his heart but she won’t have a bar of him. Aly won’t forgive him for all the dirty tricks he played on her in high school. She has spent her life trying to make her father proud, even buying the family business and making it thrive again. When these two meet up after 12 years, it is anything but platonic.
When I started reading, it had a sense of familiarity about this story. Whether it was due to it being a friends to lovers romance that I enjoy or the dual POV, it just felt right diving in and falling for both Aly and Emmett. He was a dependable character full of family loyalty. I loved his cheeky playful side when interacting with Aly. She had me giggling with her stumbling reactions when confronted with Emmett head on! She may have been stubborn, but she too was loyal to her family but more to her friends that had become her family. The secrets that they are keeping might come back to haunt them, but their similar personalities will help them to understand each other’s decisions to reach their HEA.
I am grateful for the early copy provided by the author for an honest review.

Two childhood “rivals” Emmett and Aly who grew up together but haven’t spoken in a number of years find themselves brought together again and living under the same roof “as friends”, however after a few heated encounters it’s clear being just friends isn’t going to cut it and as the saying goes “what the heart wants the heart gets” they both admit their true feeling towards one another and decide to give in a give a relationship a proper chance. However with secrets being kept can the course of true love run smoothly? What’s happened in the past doesn’t always stay there as both Emmett and Aly discover.

Stella Rhys has done it again, she’s given us another five star read with this stand-alone, second chance contemporary romance, enjoyable characters with a heartwarming plot and plenty of steamy moments make this another enjoyable read from this very talented author.
I was given an ARC in return for an honest review.
