Synopsis from Goodreads: Sam Brandis was Tate Jones’s first: Her first love. Her first everything. Including her first heartbreak. 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 to. 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.

My Review: Another solid book from Christina Lauren and while I really enjoyed, it was lacking in the level of sass that I loved from the last couple of books. This one was more about love and heartbreak, both in romantic relationships and family ones. It was moving and a lovely story but there wasn’t the parts that make me laugh out loud. It was well written and with characters I loved though so it is still very much worth reading if you are a fan of their other novels! It was a little unbelievable toward the end but honestly, love can make people do crazy things so I didn’t find it too out of the realm of normal.
