It’s the exciting start of a brand-new series by a contemporary romance fan favorite!
After a devastating heartbreak three years ago, genealogist and historical village owner Nora Bradford has decided that burying her nose in her work and her books is far safer than romance in the here and now.
Unlike Nora, former Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient John Lawson is a modern-day man, usually 100 percent focused on the present. But when he’s diagnosed with an inherited condition, he’s forced to dig into the secrets of his past and his adoption as an infant, enlisting Nora to help him uncover the identity of his birth mother.
The more time they spend together, the more this pair of opposites suspects they just might be a perfect match. However, John’s already dating someone and Nora’s not sure she’s ready to trade her crushes on fictional heroes for the risks of a real relationship. Finding the answers they’re seeking will test the limits of their identity, their faith, and their devotion to one another.

Opposites attract–and make for a chemistry charged romance. I’ve read all of Becky Wade’s books, so I am more than excited to share my thoughts on her new release. (Warning: you won’t want to put this book down once you start.)
I loved the relatable characters. I feel like I could be best friends with Nora in real life. For one, she loves books. Secondly, I read this line and instantly connected with her.
Yep. That’s a quote from the first page.
Then, add in to the mix that she’s the middle sister of three. (So am I.) Her complex personality stems from being a little overshadowed by her model older sister and her vivacious younger sister. As always, Becky Wade successfully created realistic characters with flaws and attributes: from the sisters to their grandmother and, of course, former Navy Seal John Lawson.
One unique feature about this book that was different from her others were the text messages, emails, and notes at the end of each chapter. The prequel Then Came You is a story told through journal entries, text messages, phone conversations, and letters–so ending each chapter the same way really tied in consistency to the prequel.
I hated that the book had to come to an end and I can’t wait to read the next book. In short, this is a must read.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book through LitFuse Publicity Group in an exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Five star rating–up all night reading.
