Star Rating: 5/5 🌟
Nate and Liv have a great life together but they miss the spontaneity and freedom they enjoyed early on in their romance. Careers and their children have inevitably kept them busy, so when Nate discovers Liv is feeling disconnected from him, he plans an anniversary trip to the idyllic seaside town of Hartwell, Delaware. There he hopes they will have the opportunity they’ve been craving – a chance to reinvent themselves and fall in love all over again.
With each new day comes a new adventure, from wedding crashing at the five-star boardwalk hotel to pretending they are two strangers having a chance encounter at the boardwalk bar. In the midst of this daring, sexually charged game of romantic rediscovery, Nate and Liv discover the only constant they need is each other.
I had high expectations for this follow on novella to Nate and Olivia Sawyer’s story, and Samantha Young has done the couple such beautiful justice. I admire the way Samantha writes her books, and characters in ways that we can all releate to. They go through real life problems and deal with them as many of us would. They argue, they make up, they don’t talk to each other and their sex lives aren’t always great – but that’s what makes her work so amazing! You build a relationship with the characters on a true to life level and when they make up and get their Happily Ever After it makes it all the more sweeter.
This novel is based some years later from the original On Dublin Street duo, but they are still very much in love. I really enjoyed reading about their trip to Hartwell and would love to hear more from the Dublin Street characters!
