During a whirlwind two-week vacation abroad, Sam and Tate fell for each other in only the way that first loves do: sharing all of their hopes, dreams, and deepest secrets along the way. Sam was the first, and only, person that Tate—the long-lost daughter of one of the world’s biggest film stars—ever revealed her identity too. So when it became clear her trust was misplaced, her world shattered for good.
Fourteen years later, Tate, now an up-and-coming actress, only thinks about her first love every once in a blue moon. When she steps onto the set of her first big break, he’s the last person she expects to see. Yet here Sam is, the same charming, confident man she knew, but even more alluring than she remembered. Forced to confront the man who betrayed her, Tate must ask herself if it’s possible to do the wrong thing for the right reason… and whether “once in a lifetime” can come around twice.

See I know that this is a book, a story and the story is good. But in life having known my wife since I was 14 ns now being married over 40 years, yeah if I would have pulled something like that when I was young, she may have spoken to me 14 years later but that would be about it. Taking that part out of the story it is good and like I said it is a story, to be fun, that is what I looked at ii as. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars.
