About the book:
From debut author, Barb Curtis, a heartwarming small-town romance about high school sweethearts who return home and discover that first love sometimes gets a second chance. . .
Jay Wynter wants to be successful on his own merit. That’s why he left Sapphire Springs and his family’s winery to build a career from scratch. But now that he’s successor to Wynter Estate, Jay must return to his small hometown to face everything, and everyone, he left behind-especially his high school sweetheart, who happens to be his stunning new business partner . . .
Leyna Milan knows family legacies come with strings attached, but she’s determined to prove that she can run her family’s restaurant. Of course, Leyna never expected that honoring her grandfather’s wishes meant opening a second location on her ex’s property-or having to ignore Jay’s sexy grin and guard the heart he shattered years before. But as they work closely together, she begins to discover that maybe first loves deserve a second chance . . .
Forever with You by Barb Curtis is the first book in the contemporary romance Sapphire Springs series. As with a lot of romance series the common theme in this series is the location and the main characters will change from book to book in the series. As the characters are changing the books in this series can be read as a standalone if choosing to do so.
The Sapphire Springs series opens up with a second chance romance with a pair of high school sweethearts being reunited. Leyna Milan has been in talks with the Wynter family when looking for a location to expand her family’s restaurant business but she never expected that the project would be turned over to her ex.
Jay Wynter left Sapphire Springs eighteen years ago and didn’t really plan on returning. When circumstances bring Jay back to the small town he can’t help but remember how much he cared for Leyna and wonders if she could ever forgive him for leaving.
Of course one of my favorite things in romance is when a couple has a history together in a second chance romance and we have that mixed with another favorite of mine in it being set in a small town. With Barb Curtis being a debut author I still wasn’t sure if the series would be a winner but my worries went out the window when I sat down with this charming first of the series. I will definitely be back for more after loving the location and characters in this first book.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
