"Why can't you just be a good boy and divorce me?"
Lisa had thought her marriage had ended years ago, a spare few months after it had started. Since she has taken care of her aging father and the family store that is more of a burden than a legacy for her and left her lofty ex-in-laws behind her. But things are okay - until Rich walks back into her life telling her that the divorce was never finalized. Now faced with the man who stole her heart so many years ago, how can she face the past she thought was behind her? Rich never thought to see Lisa again. He avoided his hometown, preferring his business in LA. But when he discovers their divorce was never finalized, he must walk back into his past - and find out just what has changed and what hasn't. And perhaps share a lesson with his own parents on what is worth fighting for.
My Opinion: I thought this was a cute story and a nice read. It felt much more of a double story, following both Rich and Lisa, as well as Rich's parents. Thus filling the pages with two plotlines that intertwine, and yet neither reach a rich thickness that you might have found if the story centered on one more heavily. Nevertheless, it was a good read that delved into the question of when to fight for love and what you're willing to do for it. There was a certain sadness behind the lost time and bad decisions in their lives that comes across nicely and makes the romance seem all the more real. Overall a good read.
