JASMINE Once upon a time, there was a girl who had a crush on a boy. Eventually, they fell in love. They lived happily ever after. Except they didn’t. Not even close. I’m the girl, but that’s not my story. Once upon a time, I fell for a boy, but we didn’t have a happily ever after. In fact, we crashed and burned. Which turned out to be for the best because it forced me to grow up and realize the only wedding bells in my future are the ones I orchestrate for clients. For six years I’ve been perfectly content with meaningless, short-lived flings and running from anything that resembles a real relationship. That boy? He’s my best friend’s brother, and he’s no longer the boy I fell for—he’s a man I can’t stand. Oh, and he’s also my new neighbor. DEAN Seemingly overnight, Jasmine Winters went from being my sister’s best friend to being the girl I couldn’t get enough of. But like most good things, it didn’t last. Things fell apart so suddenly, I’m able to convince myself that summer never happened. At least, I was, until the only distance between us is a hallway instead of a time zone. Six years ago, I let Jasmine slip through my fingers without an explanation because I was convinced we’d be better off apart. But now that we’re neighbors, our unspoken vow of apathy has unwittingly been shattered. Our exchanges consist of trading insults and icy stare downs. But in-between, I catch glimpses of the way she used to look at me, glimpses of the girl I fell for years ago. Things are different now, though. This time… I won’t let her walk away without giving me answers. When Light Leads to You is the second full-length novel of the Forget Me Knot series, but can be read as a standalone.

 **Due to strong language and the sexy times between these two, this book is recommended to readers ages 18 and up.** 

Second chance romance is probably my favorite trope. There is something about a rebuilt connection, the pull of knowing both how good things can be, and how bad they can be, with someone you have cared about in the past makes for compelling reading.

Jasmine and Dean, however, had what felt like a friendship and an attraction that, for numerous reasons, wasn't really acted upon. And, in a lot of ways, this felt more like a friends to lovers than it did a second chance, which isn't an issue, there was just less of their past to bring to the present than I was expecting.

This is my first title by this author and I did enjoy her writing style, although there were some places where I felt the reactions of the characters was a little dramatic for the situation. Not enough to ruin the story for me, but enough for me to think that there was an overreaction to a situation that I didn't totally believe.

That said, I enjoyed this title overall. I believed in their connection and in their ability to find that connection again now that they are both older.

I recommend this title.
