Than Amber jumped in and asked if she forgot to tell Jane Morgan was coming to the reunion. Jane decided she would leave. Jane had just said she wasn’t impressed with Morgan when Morgan spoke behind her. Morgan had been Jane’s secret boyfriend in HS. Jane had never forgotten him or his kiss. Something had driven them apart in the past. Little does Jane know Morgan still had feelings for her just as she does for him.

I enjoyed this book. It was a quick, easy, fun read with some drama thrown in. I thought Felicia was just to forward towards Morgan it annoyed me. I did find this predictable. At times I did get annoyed both with Jane and Morgan. I did like the pace and plot. I would have liked the book to be a little longer to show more of Morgan and Jane together. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it.
