They say that each of us becomes an entirely new person every seven years. But Rebecca Bradshaw doesn’t feel any different when an old lover shows up severely injured at the hospital where she runs the physical therapy department. Seven years ago baseball player Jace Cooper left her without a second thought or the chance to share the life-changing secret she swore she’d keep from him forever. Now he was back, wanting both her help and a second chance. Becca hadn’t changed, and she didn’t believe Jace had either, but as she helped him repair his broken body and his fractured past, she would find she was wrong on both counts. The only thing that had stayed the same was the most important thing of all—and now suddenly time was running out.

    " It was a good quick read... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Annette | 1/17/2014

    " This was a quick read,and an enjoyable romance. Nice story line with a baseball player hunk at the center of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lena | 1/7/2014

    " It was OK. A bit too mushy for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin | 1/5/2014

    " Found myself skimming the pages rather quickly. It's okay if you want something to read you really don't have to think about too much. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marie Maywalt | 1/3/2014

    " Somewhat predictable,easy to read love story. I like how Hoag incorporates her other stories/interests into her books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denice | 12/29/2013

    " This was "too light"...I just didn't get into this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy Knight | 12/21/2013

    " This book was a good fast read romance novel. It was enjoyable without much depth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 12/11/2013

    " 3.5* Enjoyable fast read. Think series romance and you'll have the idea of length and character development. This is not a Hoag suspense story. It is strictly a light romance. However, Hoag succeeds in getting a lot of character development into the short book making it a satisfying read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darcy | 11/25/2013

    " This was a pretty sweet book for an older romance book. Rebecca and Jase were fun, and I loved the history that they had and how they overcame everything. Rebecca's father was funny with all of his tinkering and robotics. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Alcazar | 11/10/2013

    " that was good...cheesy, but good. LOL "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Guylene Milner | 1/11/2013

    " Look for "The alibi Man" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 nelda munoz | 11/27/2012

    " Typical guy leaves girl, then realizes he messed up. Girl won't take him back, kind of book. However, it was a short read and cute. Lots of interesting characters. Not a book I would read again, but liked it none the less. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 9/10/2012

    " This is an early romance from mystery writer Tami Hoag. Physical therapist, Rebecca Brashaw and pro-baseball player Jace Cooper are the characters. Nothing special, quick and predictable. Hoag's mysteries are much, much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kindlehooked (Tanya Childress) | 9/7/2012

    " This was a very quick, light read therefore I would recommend it if you like those types. A very sweet and simple love story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen | 6/19/2012

    " I like Tami Hoag's mystery novels so I thought I'd give this romance one a try. Unfortunately it was too sappy, predictable and full of metaphors for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tammi | 5/26/2012

    " One of the authors that I always read when I find one of her books, but I enjoy the suspense novels better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Malone | 5/2/2012

    " I'm always drawn to a story of old love that resurrects itself into new and shining love. This story does not disappoint me. Tami Hoag knows how to lead us through the rollercoaster known as love. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy T | 3/12/2012

    " I enjoyed this book. Baseball and romance, what more could I ask for in a book. "

    " Another fast fun read by Hoag. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judy | 12/5/2011

    " I like Tami Hoag's mysteries, but not a big fan of this book. It was very predictable and repetitious to the point of almost being monotonous. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nicole Gust | 11/27/2011

    " Not that great, from the first few pages you knew what was going to happen. Too many love scenes in the last half - that's all it was at the end was sex scene after sex scene. "
