You Again by Amanda Waters: Review Tour with JustRead Publicity Tours

So happy to be a part of this JustRead Reviewer Tour!


The summer before her senior year of high school, Rosalee fell in love with George. By the next summer, George had broken her heart, and Rosalee was sure she'd never see him again.

Forty years and a lifetime later, Rosalee's quiet, predictable life is turned upside down when she runs into George at a restaurant and discovers he's moved to town. George wants to reconnect, and while Rosalee's head isn't so sure that's a good idea, her heart is saying something different.

It's a story about first love and second chances, family, friendship, and living life to the fullest.


'The kiss was almost tentative. A first kiss. But it made her smile, and when she didn't pull back, George slid an arm around her waist and kissed her again. This kiss was warmer, deeper. It was a kiss between lips that had met before. It was hello again.'

I think we've all heard of high school sweethearts who are reunited after spending years apart, but can this relationship really work? Author Amanda Waters explores this scenario in an intriguing story that alternates between 1973 and 2018. Rosalee is a high school senior who believes that she's found the man of her dreams, but instead faces heartache when he marries someone else. Fast forward forty years, and their chance meeting rekindles some long buried feelings. Rosalee and George are both free to explore what might have been, but can they accept the changes that have occurred over the years?

This is an intriguing look at second chance love, and Waters paints a powerful picture of the hurdles that Rosalee and George face. They've enjoyed marriage with their respective spouses, they each have adult children, and they both have a lifetime of memories that don't include the other. The biggest obstacle, however, is the question of trust. Rosalee may be able to forgive George, but can she truly believe that he won't hurt her again?

This enjoyable look at love the second time around is an encouraging reminder that love and romance are possible at any age. You Again shows us that life events may alter our plans, but they don't have to steal our joy. Middle-aged love can be both sweet and fulfilling!

I voluntarily accepted a digital copy of this book. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
