New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James kicks-off her Want You Series with a Lund family cousin hot enough to melt the ice and mend a broken heart.
Former NHL star Jaxson Lund has returned to the Twin Cities, but he's at loose ends, unsure if he belongs at Lund Industries, or where he stands with Lucy, his ex-girlfriend and mother of his daughter, Mimi. Despite the signs she'd like to leave him in the penalty box, the attraction burning between them reinforces his determination to prove that he deserves a second chance...
Lucy Quade is in a good place with a steady job, a nice apartment, and a well-adjusted daughter, which is why she's hesitant when Jax insists on co-parenting. It's not that Lucy doesn't trust Jax...she's just unconvinced he can handle multiple responsibilities when he's been singularly focused on playing hockey. But when issues arise with Mimi, Lucy's shocked at how levelheaded and paternal he acts, giving her a glimpse of the Jax she used to know, the sexy, sweet man she fell for years ago.
Once Lucy lets her guard down, Jax goes all in to show her how good they are together, but will their past remain too large an obstacle to ever overcome?
I Want You Back by Lorelei James
I WANT YOU BACK is one of those feel good, fun, but bittersweet second chance at love stories.
Jaxson messed up, he destroyed his relationship with his daughter’s mother because he was so caught up in himself to ever think of anyone else…including his daughter. But now he is back and he wants to make up for lost time, not just with his daughter but with Lucy, his ex.
Lucy has moved on, has been a single parent for years and has made a good life for her and her daughter…even without the help of “dead beat dad”.
Sparks have always flown around Jaxson and Lucy, but now they just might lite and inferno!
I found I WANT YOU BACK is one of those books you read from start to finish and you put up the DO NOT DISTURB THE READER sign.
