Young lovers, Kyle and Ronnie, had the world ahead of them at seventeen. Stubbornness, misunderstanding and a mother’s influence forced them to forge their own paths. A decade later, neither can find love. It takes a tragedy and a secret to reunite them. Their passion returns in a rush along with regret and guilt.
Ronnie always thought it was easier to move on than deal with the pain and hurt of past mistakes. She made plenty of them, but so did Kyle and her parents.
Kyle knows the moment he touches Ronnie that he still loves her. He won’t repeat the past and let her leave him a second time. They’ll overcome the issues, hopefully before her mother’s sin takes Ronnie away, once and for all.
I am a sucker for second chance love stories especially when the men are not afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. The author did a great job with the characters and plot. We get a little bit of everything. Betrayal, mystery, secrets, sex and danger. The author did not leave anything out. Love Repeated started and ended with a bang and ends with a bang.
Ten years ago Ronnie and Kyle looked forward to spending summers together. They were in love and crazy for each other. Kyle wanted to spend the rest of his life with Ronnie and was going to propose. Ronnie wanted more in life and knew she could not give Kyle the life he wanted. So she walked away giving him the chance to find a love that wanted the same life as he did. Fat forward ten years to the present and Kyle finds himself looking at the girl that broke his heart. The woman that he has never forgotten.
Kyle had thought he got over Ronnie but seeing her in the bar, looking like he’d picture her in his dreams, he knew she was still apart of him. All Kyle wanted to do was stay away from her and not prove that she was right all along. That he had done nothing with his life. He was in debt, struggling, no wife and no plan for any future. With one look of the bruise on Ronnie’s face he knew he wanted to help her and hurt the person that caused her pain.
“Don’t bother lying to be, Ronnie. I know you too well. What happened?”
“You’re not the boy I once I loved, nor am I the same girl.”
“Bullshit, Ronnie. I might I’ve changed, but not when it comes to your safety. You know I’d take on the damn world to protect you. Doesn’t matter if we’re lovers, friends, or strangers.”
Ronnie is going through so much. Her father passed away and her mother was murdered at an armed robbery at the art gallery they worked at. Since her mother’s murder, Ronnie found some letters and one of them asked her to take some pictures to hers father house. The last thing Ronnie wanted was to run into Kyle, the only man she has loved. Ronnie tries to put on a front and show that she is ok and over him but when she finds out that he never married, she starts to wonder if walking away from him was for nothing. She expected to see him living a happy fulfilling life but that wasn’t the case. Ronnie is also dealing with a secret she found out about her mother. This secret has caused her to second guess everything she has ever known. The only thing she knows for certain is that she is still in love with Kyle and there has never been another man like him that made her feel what he does in the last ten years.
The chemistry, love, passion and tension between Ronnie and Kyle is undeniable. Kyle thinks if he can just have one night with Ronnie he will be able to move on. The problem is with that one night comes the realization that he has never nor will ever get over her. Ronnie finds herself struggling with her feelings for Kyle. Her mind says no but her body craves him and she feels safe and comfortable with him.
“I’m going to bend you over your car, life your skirt and fu*k you, Ronnie. If you have some guy that’s going to hunt me down for making you come all over my di*k, tell me now.”
“I was right about you, Kyle Sander. You’re naughty.”
Ronnie is in town for a week, all Kyle has to do is remind her just how good they are together and for her to admit she still loves him. She is afraid to let Kyle back in. She has so much going and the secret her mother reveals is slowly killing her.
“I have no intention of replacing you.”
“I’m not letting you go this time, Ronnie. We’re going to figure this out how to make this work between us.”
Kyle and Ronnie’s characters were very well developed. Getting both their POVs showed just how connected and committed they were to one another. The author shows us even after all that time, space and distance true love has no barriers. That with communication and willingness anything is possible. I really fell in love with Kyle. He was confident and secure in his feelings with Ronnie and he wasn’t afraid to push her limits. Ronnie at first seemed cold but she opened up about her past and her relationship with Kyle. I learned that there was so much more to her and her love for Kyle was sincere. Ronnie knows she loves him but she needed him to push her limits and show her that together they can accomplish anything.
This was a very quick read but I definitely enjoyed this.
