Zora and Nick were highschool sweethearts. Well, until Nick disappeared and never contacted her. Now he’s shown up at the University where she teaches, and Zora is having none of it. She’s left those memories in the past where they belong, thank you very much.
Nick knows he left Zora high and dry, but he can’t understand why she won’t even give him the time of day. He’d like to apologize and explain himself, but Zora seems determined to ignore him, and even go out of her way to avoid him. He’s got to find a way to finagle a way to spend some time with her…
I love the ‘enemies’ trope and this one has the ‘second chance’ relationship going for it as well – what could be better? Nick and Zora are great! Their story had everything – laughter, hard topics, and just the right amount of angst. This was one of the best romances I’ve read this year. You aren’t going to want to miss it!
