Dr. Ivy Green likes to play by the rules. But when she gets coaxed into crashing a party, she runs into the last man she ever thought she'd see again, her one and only one-night stand. It's been ten years since they've seen each other, but their chemistry is just as palpable as it was that night so long ago. Only problem is, she's leaving in one month for a fellowship across the country.
Luke Walker likes to keep everything close to his chest, but when he sees Ivy again, the woman he was never able to get out of his mind, he wants her. It doesn't matter that his dark past and dangerous present mean he cant keep her. After all, she's leaving in a month. What's the worst that could happen?

 Start Over by J. Saman (Start Again, #2)

Start Over (Start Again Series #2)It was just one drink to ease the pain of losing a patient. That one drink for Dr. Ivy Green, single, beautiful and alone gets her caught up in the frenzy of crashing an engagement party when she meets the quirky Claire who overpowers her sense of propriety and unknowingly is about to turn her finely ordered world into a tumultuous journey of romantic chaos that started over a decade before. It was a frivolous one night stand with a handsome man, but that night became so much more for Ivy and she has never forgotten the man that got away and now he is right in front of her, without a flicker of recognition…

Luke sees her from across the room, the woman he had to leave without a word of goodbye and ten years later she is even more beautiful, more desirable, but will she remember him? If she did, she shows no sign, like maybe slapping his face for his seemingly callous departure in the middle of the night.

But life has a wonderful way of bringing two people together when they are meant to be, but even this time, there is an expiration date, because Ivy will be moving to finish her hard won fellowship at a hospital hundreds of miles away and Luke has a successful life right where he is, even as his past still haunts him, which is why he ran from Ivy’s bed and into obscurity. Do they have what it takes to make it through time and distance this time or was this just another teaser on life’s journey?

Hang on to your heart as J. Saman allows her characters to speak their minds and thoughts as they share their POVs and bare their hearts. START OVER a beautifully succinct title that tells it all. Two people are given the chance to start over, older, wiser and yet, even with all of their live experiences, they tentative love they share is as riddled with angst and insecurity as that of two eighteen-year-olds. Often sweet, sometimes wonderfully endearing this ride through the tunnel of love has its moments when their boat seems about to capsize in a tsunami of emotional baggage.

Wonderfully written, thoroughly engaging and completely romantic, sometimes love rocks you when you least expect it!

I received an ARC edition from J. Saman in exchange for my honest review.
