Every story in the Second Time Around series is the HEA that every woman who's been through some shit and is hoping for a second chance to get love right, dreams about. The friendships, the romance, the heat factor, the love that transcends and overcomes all obstacles... it's just oh so right. If I Only Knew was unlike any story I've read. It was heart wrenching at times, journeying along with these characters as they dealt with loss, teenage angst, sacrifice and longing. Hilarious at times. Smart. Witty. Endearing. It makes you FEEL and that's basically how I judge the books that I read. Give me feelings or DNF, LOL! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and this series and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a great read with a big side of feels.

Our Favorite Quotes

Loving someone in the past doesn't mean you don't deserve love in the future.

All of us are imperfect. All of us have flaws. All of us are undeserving of something, but that doesn't mean we don't want more.

Milo makes my world brighter than it's ever been. He tore down the old ideas of what love looked like and painted me something breathtaking.

From The Publisher


My life was perfect – until a shocking tragedy pulled the rug out from underneath me.

My children were left without a father. I was without a husband and a provider. Instead of wallowing in my grief, I buried myself in my work at Dovetail Enterprises. Landing the promotion as the CEO’s right hand was exactly what I needed.

Getting saddled with Milo Huxley as an assistant is exactly the opposite.

I can’t stand him.

He’s arrogant, irresponsible, and out for my job. As if that’s not bad enough, he has to be devastatingly sexy, and have a posh English accent that makes me squirm on top of it all. I’ve had enough unpredictability for one lifetime, thank you.

But soon enough, we’re fighting less and laughing more. He’s there for me when no one else is. And those good looks aren’t the only panty-dropping thing about him.

If I only knew what to do about it . . .

I'm a mom of 2 rad AF adults, 1 fresh baby and a super cute fur babe. Hospital administration by day, yoga instructor by night, travel junkie, shoe addict, foodie and avid reader in all the spaces in-between. I got my love of books from my mama and honestly can’t remember a time in my life where reading wasn’t a daily priority. I’m a sappy hopeless romantic who’s a sucker for 2nd chances, mature characters, and serendipitous connections. In an ideal world, you can find me on the beach with an icy cold adult libation in one hand and my Kindle in the other.
