Twice in a Blue Moon – Published 2019
“Sam Brandis was Tate Jones’s first: Her first love. Her first everything. Including her first heartbreak.
During a whirlwind two-week vacation abroad, Sam and Tate fell for each other in only the way that first loves do: sharing all of their hopes, dreams, and deepest secrets along the way. Sam was the first, and only, person that Tate—the long-lost daughter of one of the world’s biggest film stars—ever revealed her identity to. So when it became clear her trust was misplaced, her world shattered for good.
Fourteen years later, Tate, now an up-and-coming actress, only thinks about her first love every once in a blue moon. When she steps onto the set of her first big break, he’s the last person she expects to see. Yet here Sam is, the same charming, confident man she knew, but even more alluring than she remembered. Forced to confront the man who betrayed her, Tate must ask herself if it’s possible to do the wrong thing for the right reason… and whether “once in a lifetime” can come around twice.” – Goodreads
I don’t have a ton to say about this one, as it was my least favorite CLO read yet. It’s worth reading, and it definitely gets better as the story goes on. It has a second chance romance trope, which I like. It also takes place on a movie set, which is interesting. It deals a little bit with race, family drama, and first love. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good book, it’s just not my favorite, and I didn’t have a huge emotional connection to it the way I have with other books by these authors.
