    This was another good story set in Hope and we got to see many of the characters from previous books. Deacon and Loretta had a past, but managed to overcome that and work towards a future together. I enjoyed this, but it all seemed a little too easy and predictable. There was something about the writing that felt different from the author's other books too. Still good and I was happy to see them get their happy ending - at last!

    I listened to the audio and while there was nothing wrong with it, it was a new narrator from the others in the series. Probably because it wasn't what I was used to or expecting, it didn't work for me as well as the others did. I'm pretty sure I have listened to the narrator, Allyson Ryan, before and not had a problem, but she didn't fit this series as well as I hoped. Just my opinion and again, not a knock on the narrator.

    As not a fan of 2nd chance books I actually enjoyed this one.

    Contrary to the “usual” trope the heroine was the one to break up with the hero as they were teens. I’m not ashamed to admit that it made me easier to stomach the story.

    She moved on and married OM. She was brainwashed by her parents and even if it doesn’t excuse her, I had less problems with this situation as if the roles were reversed.

    She moved on and married OM. She was brainwashed by her parents and even if it doesn’t excuse her, I had less problems with this situation as if the roles were reversed.

    The hero was a great man. I liked his attitude and adored how he cared for the heroine and her daughter.

    I read all books in this series and they all are pretty sweet. Low drama, maybe a bit naïve, but not annoying.

    Big plus – and also the main reason I liked this series – all MCs are animal lovers. Here we had an adorable dog who was adopted from animal shelter. I’m often hard on people, but I have a very soft spot for animals. So, if the person loves pets, or better rescues one, I would probably like him or her. And every single character in this series love animals. I’m in!

    I had no problems with the hero not being celibate during separation, it was 12 years, and I read only little details about his past. No OW, and it helped a lot.

    Smart conflict at the end, I was on her side and fully understood her doubts.

    Big plus: the heroine didn’t once look pathetic.

    She didn’t need to grovel or apologise on her knees, the hero accepted her and forgave her without her begging and humiliating herself.

    Overall I enjoyed this book and will definitely read the next one.

    P.S. I thought it takes longer to recover from appendix surgery…

    Satisfying edition to the Hope Series, about second chance at love. This was very low drama, which was unexpected due to how Deacon acted towards Loretta in previous books. Here, all was forgiven pretty quickly, which was the adult thing to do, but in book land made it a little dull. I do like this series and all past characters show up here, along with a few new characters who I'm guessing are the next book couple. Loretta's daughter Hazel and her dog Otis made the book for me. 3 1/2 stars.

    Deacon could just be so sweet, that man looks out for Loretta, even at times she kinda doesn't want him to, "he moved into her and took her hand, pressing it against his hard ***k. “I think you know better than that. I want this. I want you. But I don’t think tonight is the right time.” Loretta has no qualms voicing her needs, girl just puts it out there, "...because I’m going to warn you, Deacon. It’s been a really long time for me. There’s been a severe drought. The well has been dry. Do you n

I want this. I want you. But I don’t think tonight is the right time.” Loretta has no qualms voicing her needs, girl just puts it out there, "...because I’m going to warn you, Deacon. It’s been a really long time for me. There’s been a severe drought. The well has been dry. Do you need me to spout any more euphemisms, or do you get the idea?” I loved this book, I was so in love with Deacon, the man couldn't be more perfect.

    Jaci does it again! And again and again. The Hope series is one of my go-to series for a feel good story and LOVE ME AGAIN didn't disappoint. There's the fact that this is a high school sweethearts that didn't end up together getting a second chance. Also that the heroine is now divorced and raising her daughter alone. I can't get enough of these stories.

    Jaci does it again! And again and again. The Hope series is one of my go-to series for a feel good story and LOVE ME AGAIN didn't disappoint. There's the fact that this is a high school sweethearts that didn't end up together getting a second chance. Also that the heroine is now divorced and raising her daughter alone. I can't get enough of these stories.

    We've seen the sexy Deacon Fox earlier in the series. Loretta broke his heart when she left him after high school and went on to marry a future politician. Deacon has never gotten over the hurt and is not ready to face Loretta now that she's back in town. In fact, they've done a good job at avoiding each other until he ends up working on the building next to her new bookstore. And Loretta's daughter (and new pooch) soften him up. Small town, kids, animals, sexy construction worker and second chances... LOVE ME AGAIN was overflowing with goodness. I couldn't put it down.

    I loved the characters and their trust again, both for different reasons. But the love they had for each other was always there and it was nice to see them tentatively letting their guard down and showing the other that they still cared. It's now a more mature relationship and Loretta especially had still some growing up to do and standing up to her parents. It was nice to see the evolution of that as well. And Deacon will have your heart melting at his feet. Swoon-worthy.

    I sound like a broken record when it comes to this series, but it's one of my favorites. This is the perfect summer read and one of those books that will leave you with a sweet smile on your face after you finish it. Even as you're wondering when you can get more.

    Small Town. Second Chance Romance.

    Love Me Again is the 7th book in the Hope series but can stand alone completely. I personally have not read any of the other books in the series (although I probably will after this one) and had no confusion in terms of the town, story line, or characters.

    Small Town. Second Chance Romance.

    Love Me Again is the 7th book in the Hope series but can stand alone completely. I personally have not read any of the other books in the series (although I probably will after this one) and had no confusion in terms of the town, story line, or characters. With that, this is a lovely second chance romance between former flames who reconnect after a 12 year absence from one another. It is also a sweet small town read with all the perks one would expect from this genre (i.e. the friendships, how everyone knows everyone's business, and so on).

    Truly, I enjoyed reading this book. I found the characters and their budding relationship to be very charming however, their relationship and how everything went down to be quite predictable. Normally, this would make me sort of dislike the book, but predictable or not, it was still really good and I did enjoy it from page 1 all the way until the end. All too often we see the same tropes used in stories and it gets old after a while. However, the authors writing style and the way the situation was handled between the two made it feel real and I liked this. In some parts the wording and the way the two interacted with one another made me roll my eyes because frankly, it felt like 60 year old's talking and not 30 somethings, but I got over it in the end and found it to add to the characters maturity.

    In the end, even if there were some flaws (in my personal opinion of course) I did find myself smiling and enjoying the read. It's pretty fast paced at only 300 pages, is an easy read, and isn't filled with all the drama. It's just a simple love story with strong characters and a cute plot.

    Fans of the author will certainly enjoy this one and those who are looking for a quick and sweet read to knock you off your feet. Even more, if your looking for something with a small town feel and like romances that come back to life then this is the book for you!
