Author: Ivy Sinclair
Status: Released on Amazon
Five years ago, Julia Bell walked away from everything she knew the moment her high school diploma was in her hand. She desperately needed to escape the chokehold of small town life in Benton Hill before it was too late. Now, an urgent call from her little sister brings Julia back to her hometown wholly unprepared to deal with the fallout of what’s happened since she’s been gone.
Ben Miller was always the nice guy. Just before high school graduation, he stepped out of that role hoping to capture the heart of Julia Bell, the woman who had been at the center of his world since they were kids. Instead, in quick succession, he lost the girl and the future he worked so hard to achieve.
Even though Julia and Ben are drawn back to each other, echoes of the past remind them at every turn why it didn’t work the first time. Ben is willing to give it a chance, but Julia is as unsure of a life with him in it as she was five years ago. Before she runs away again, Ben has to figure out a reason to make her want to stay.
