***He wants a second chance. I want a divorce. To get what I want, I’ll have to give him what he does.***
From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Nicole Williams:
The only benefit I want from my ex is a divorce.
We got married for all the wrong reasons. The one thing we got right was our separation. I should have known better than to think I could bet on forever with a guy like Canaan Ford. Everything about him screamed impermanent, from his wild eyes to his restless soul.
When I left him and the small town I’d spent my whole life in, I swore I’d never go back. Never only turned out to be five years. Canaan claims he’s changed, but he hasn’t—same knowing smile, same rough demeanor, same body crafted from sin and sinew. And yet, something is different. He thinks this is his chance for redemption. My disagreement comes in the form of divorce papers dropped in his lap. He refuses to sign them. Unless . . .
He wants a month to prove himself to me—that’s his offer. One month to make me fall in love with him again and if I don’t, he’ll sign the papers. As much as I want to say no, I agree. I can suffer my ex for a short amount of time if that’s what it takes to be free of him once and for all. I fell for him once; I won’t make that same mistake twice.
He says we’re not over. I say we were over before we got started. Only one of us can be right, and I can’t let it be him.

My ReviewAhh! What a perfect read! It was reminiscent of the movie Sweet Home Alabama. I adored that movie and I adored this book just as much, if not more!
Welcome back home, the home she left when things just didn't go the way they should've. Married too young, with a husband who lost his way... She left, ran away, only to come back later when her grandmother passes away to find the boy she married has grown and matured into one hell of man.
I couldn't put this book down!!!!!
I've loved everything that Nicole Williams has published but this one definitely ran up towards the top of my favorites list for her work. It was such an emotional read. A story I wanted to keep reading on and on just to see what happens in their life after the story ended. Canaan and Maggie are precious. Yes, they had a rough start but, lord, he's trying his best to make amends and right all his wrongs. She's tough but absolutely in denial through most of the book. I wanted to reach in and smack her on more than one occasion.
Great characters, emotional plot, twists that I loved. Romance for an age group that I just can't find often enough! I loved it!
Overall, huge 5 stars. Nicole Williams continues to show me why she's one of my favorites!
