    4.5 Stars I first read this book so long ago that I don t exactly remember when it was I have reread this trilogy many times over the years, but I still enjoy it each time It s been at least a year or two since the last reread, so the dialogue and exact events had faded enough that it felt like a rediscovery.I am a fan of second chance romances and the frenemies to lovers trope, and this definitely fit the bill for both Second chances can sometimes be hard to...
