Your true family is the one you choose...

When nurse Jess Bellamy returns to her hometown for a cousin’s wedding, she hopes to completely avoid her ex and first love, Morgan Price. But Morgan is the best man, and the groom’s best friend, so try as she might, Jess can’t avoid him. Teenage Morgan, she got over. Grown up Morgan is infinitely hotter, infinitely more successful, and infinitely harder to ignore.

When they re-kindle the explosive physical connection between them, Jess hopes they've burned it out of their systems. She left everything behind five years ago after her father’s funeral, including Morgan, and she's leaving again in two days. She had good reasons for going, and good reasons for staying away.

But as Morgan and Jess explore their searing passion during that lost weekend, Jess is tempted by what might have been and haunted by the ghosts of what was. She has two days to decide whether to keep her secrets or keep the only man she's ever loved.

MY REVIEW

Jess and Morgan were high school sweethearts and shared a once-in-a-lifetime and all-encompassing type of love. Tragically, her father died and she was overwhelmed with guilt and grief and fled to London. Miscommunication, misdirection, and malice contributed to Jess staying away for five years. But now her cousin and best friend is getting married and she refuses to disappoint her by not attending. Even if it means coming face-to-face with the pain of the past. Even if it means trying to be around Morgan again, as he's the best man and she's still very much in love with him. She can definitely survive the next couple of days. But will her heart?

I'm a sucker for a great second chance romance and Entwined delivered. These two characters suffered so much pain and unfortunately most of it was unnecessary. However, it was real and the author did a remarkable job of exploring that pain and moving her characters through it. It wasn't easy and thankfully it wasn't made to appear superficial. I only wish Jess' mother had some sort of comeuppance for the part she played in the misery.
