Review: Save My Heart by Rhonda James

Publication Date: March 16, 2017

Series: Sticks & Hearts #3
Rating: 5 Stars 

I’ve spent my entire life protecting something.

The net
My teammates
My sister

I’ve played hockey my entire life. Had many girlfriends. Slept with more women than I care to mention. Been in love twice.

While one woman tried to control me by changing me into someone I no longer recognized, the other loved me not for who I could be, but for who I already was. She was my high school sweetheart but, like a fool, I walked away and let someone else take my place.

Now she’s back and even more beautiful than I remembered. But one glance tells me she’s guarded. At seventeen, I asked for something she wasn’t ready to give away. Today… I’d settle for holding her hand.

At one time she trusted me with her heart and I broke it. Now, I’ll do whatever it takes to convince her to let down her guard and give me a chance to prove I’m worthy of being trusted with it again. 

I was the first boy she ever kissed. And after all these years, I want to be the man she kisses for the rest of her life.

Review: Whew I have to say out of all the books I have read in this series, this one is by far the most emotional for me. BUT it’s also my favorite and holds a lot of sentimental value for me because I married my high school sweetheart so I was emotionally connected more to the characters.

I am so glad we finally get to see the true side to Scott because I knew he had a story to tell and boy was it a good one. Scott and Skylar’s story is very emotional, heartbreaking, and soul shattering, but it’s also beautiful and redeeming. Scott and Skylar were high school sweethearts, but their relationship ended on bad terms. Scott made a choice that affected them both for the next several years. Now after 4 years, they are going to be face to face. Can Skylar forgive Scott for the mistakes of the past? Can Scott prove to Skylar that he was young and naïve and made the wrong choices?

Let me tell you… at first I had a love/ hate relationship with Scott. I was so pissed off at him for what he did, but as the story progressed I understand why. Yes, he was dumb for making those choices, but I believed he learned from his mistakes. Scott and Skylar really are soul mates and destined to be together. If you love second chance romances, this is definitely the book for you. I loved it and can’t wait to see what Ms. James brings next!
