Author: Jennifer Bernard 
Series: Jupiter Point 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release: February 13th 


Ben, the most romantic of the smoking hot Knight brothers, knew from the moment he met his high school sweetheart, Julie deGaia, that she was the one for him. Marriage, kids…he wanted forever with Julie-until the moment she skipped town without a word. Then Ben's father was murdered, and his life was irrevocably changed. Now, after twelve years, Julie's back. Ben's over her, of course. They're completely different people now. Right. If they're so different, why do his feelings for her seem so damn familiar? And how, after all this time, can she still make Ben so hot and bothered? Julie was never supposed to return to Jupiter Point. It's only by staying away that she's ensured her safety. But she owes a huge debt to the wealthy and demanding Reinhard family, who took her in as a child. What the Reinhards want, they get, so here she is, dodging a handsomer-than-ever Ben Knight. Her former sweetheart has turned into a hunky pilot who aims that sexy smile at everyone except her-until he learns the truth about why she left in the first place. If the past can't keep Ben and Julie apart, a deadly threat in the present might. As for that idyllic future they always dreamed about? It might take some Jupiter Point magic to put this star-crossed couple on the road to happy ever after.

This is my first title by this author, and while this was a standalone, I did feel like maybe there was some information I didn't have, coming in to this in the 7th book in the series. There is a subplot that, while I was able to follow along, I don't think I was invested enough in the events to really understand the amount of time that was given to it.

The parts of this that focused on Ben and Julia were strong. I liked their relationship, the way it was in the past and also in the present. I thought they had a strong connection and it was interesting to watch them put their relationship together in the "now".

However, the murder subplot seemed a little tossed into the story to me, and I thought it took away from the overall story. As I mentioned, there was what felt like a lot of weight given to it, and it is a weighty subject, murder isn't light, but the time spent made me feel like I should have more info about it than I did on the way into the story...maybe the other stories build this up some and I missed that as I have not read them?

I did enjoy this overall, and I do recommend it...but I think it might be a good idea to have read other titles in the series.
