    Do you remember your first love back when you weren t quite an adult You know the one, you thought you would never get over it Nicole was seventeen when she met the love she would never get over Jake was a little older, a little damaged, but Nicole actually believed in him, made him smile as she brought blue skies and sunshine into his lonely days The summer they met was like a perfect dream, except for the secrets, the misunderstandings and their youthful inability to realize what real love entailed They made a promise and one of them would break it and shatter the heart of the other and someone else would ensure they never learned the truth Years went by, Nicole married her best friend and Jake went on to make something of himself, to quiet the darkness of his past and never be helpless again Their paths never converged, by design or by fate, who knows.Fast forward over twenty years, past the confessions of others, past the defeat of a marriage of companionship and respect, but not all consuming love and Nicole finds herself single, a successful artist and in the company of Jake one time Will the years and life experiences put what they had in perspective or will they discover that they were right, they were meant to be together When we are young we are told we are not mature enough to understand love, to work at getting past the hurt and anger, but Nicole and Jake seem to be trapped in a time warp, desperate to be with the other, but repeating the same mistakes over again Wealthy, successful, a business mogul now, Jake reverts to the damaged mechanic he was when he met Nicole and she becomes the insecure teen with doubts This is their one chance to face true love head on, scars and all, the chance to act like an adult and talk, listen, trust and believe, no secrets, no misunderstandings, are they strong enough to risk the future and accept the past as it is Susan Hammond s Unfinished is a heartbreaking tale of mistakes, misunderstandings, heartbreak and never letting go The heart knows what the heart wants and even a wonderful life that one wouldn t change doesn t fill that empty need for that one special person Not many people get a second chance to finish their story, but even if you have never been a romantic, this tale will wrench you deep within your soul Feel the frustration of being the fly on the wall, rage at the mistakes you see happening, cry when the devastation is the worst Relish in watching Nicole and Jake coming to terms with the hand life dealt them and moving past the muck and mire of the past, all while hoping they find a happy ever after.I received this copy from Susan Hammond in exchange for my honest review.Publisher Saturday Edition BooksPublication Date November 16, 2015Genre Contemporary Romance Women s FictionPrint Length 481 pagesAvailable from Barnes Noble For Reviews More

    What a lovely surprise this book was, a second chance romance and beautifully written.The story starts off after a short prologue that gives you a hint of what s to come and it s worth a look back after you have finished the book Nicole is a gifted painter and she often would spend time with her mum down at the old boathouse watching her sketch and paint Her mum has not long passed away through illness and Nicole back home for graduation is taking time to paint on the deck overlooking the lake once .It s here we are introduced to Jake, he s working for Nicole s father for the summer and staying in the boathouse Niki s brother Rob has arranged this but as you get into the story you will find out why I loved the sweet build up of young love between Nicole and Jake and it wasn t rushed so that you really felt how much they cared for each other When the major thing happens that tears them apart for twenty three years you want to scream if only but Susan Hammond has written a heartwarming romance that love prevails no matter what is thrown at our two lovers When they meet again lots of past secrets are revealed, both of them have to fight for the truth and each other.I m looking forward to the next book by this author a superb read and I highly recommend it.

    I absolutely loved Unfinished A First Love, Second Chance Romance by Susan Hammond The title indicates the general plot line but there is so much to the book and it delves so much deeper into the trials and tribulations of a lost first love rekindled over 20 years later.The book is broken into three parts, including a prologue, which I strongly suggest the reader re read at the end of the book I did and am glad I did In Part One, the action takes place over the course of one summer Nicole s mother has died a few months ago and this is the summer before she goes to college She meets Jake, a young man with a troubled past who her brother, Rob, has taken under his wing in hopes of turning around his destiny Jake and Nicole are instantly drawn to each other The book does a good job of having their relationship progress slowly and steadily over the course of the summer They separate at the end of summer with a promise to meet on Memorial Day not quite two years later Through a bit of a plot contrivance, they don t meet and go their separate ways Jake is an honorable young man in his dealings with Nicole as well as his job, but he is secretive, which costs him in the end.Nicole is basically sweet, sassy, uncomplicated, unspoiled, and inexperienced.She was written against the stereotype of the spoiled rich girl a very good thing I appreciated that she was just a nice young woman who though sad about the loss of her mother and dealing with her grief, was not unreasonably full of angst Part II fast forwards over twenty years and finds Michael, one of Nicole s two best friends, now her husband, but he asks her to leave him He realizes that she still has feelings for Jake and can t continue to live with that knowledge, knowing that half his life, 2 3 s of his adult life is still ahead of him Jake hears about the divorce and instantly puts in motion plans to move back to Austin from Chicago, his home of many years Eventually Jake and Nicole hook up the love, passion and fire, buried by both of them for so may years flames anew, hotter than ever That said, it isn t easy for them and they have to deal with many issues, buried emotions and heavy baggage from their pasts to work towards a happily ever after I appreciated the dichotomy between their early lives, which added considerably to the issues they needed to resolve This is the compelling nuts and bolts of the book and I loved it and I loved this book, which kept me awake at all hours of the night and early morning hours It was how this road was written that, for me, made this book superior to many other romance novels Besides Nicole and Jake, there is a strong supporting cast, most noteworthy their siblings, Rob and Grace Rob is pertinent to both Nicole s and Jake s individual stories Rob is a truly decent human being Each sibling offers unwavering love, support and counsel.I highly recommend this book.I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Though this is a glowing review, I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions stated are solely my own..

    Holy only, this was a marathon book I m usually of a 5K, occasionally a 10K book reader, but this one was like running 26.2 when I ve only trained for less than one quarter of that Please don t get me wrong I loved most everything about this book, from the characters to the plot The second chance romance thing is my favorite sub genre in romance, and this one seems to get most everything right.I can t gush enough at the lack of Texas stereotypes in the book, which is set in and around the Austin area I can always tell when authors are from here, and I love reading their work I wish people would write realistic portrayals of Texas life I also loved the fact that the second half of the book centered around characters that were older, proving that romance doesn t have to be a new adult twenties theme Were there some unnecessary details in the book Yep, there sure we re, but nothing felt draggy or completely tedious as I was reading it It just took forever I m normally a pretty fast reader When over the course of an hour, I only had about 5% of the book read, and it wasn t moving as fast as I wanted, I got a little frustrated.But I did enjoy it For a first novel, I m impressed I would have really liked an epilogue, but the way it ended was nice I can t wait to read from this author.

    WOW What an amazing emotional read this one is A story of young love, misunderstandings, lost opportunities, and a beautiful reunification This is the perfect story of meeting the person at makes up the other part of your heart at the wrong time in your life Thankfully for Jake and Nicole, they get a second chance even if it does take 20 years If they can see beyond past hurts, secrets, and misunderstandings a bright future awaits That s sometimes easier said than done.I highly recommend this one.

    A great book about first love This is my first time reading a book by this author, and it won t be the last This is a great epic love story about first love that transcends time, angst, doubts and uncertainties Imagine the years in between the past twenty three years, can anyone endure the pains of heartaches, the bitterness and wishing of what might have been said or done to change the events of your life I admire the the exceptional talent of this author, she successfully created a GREAT book about SECOND CHANCES that s quite believable it could happen in real life My great admiration of Jake is phenomenal Nicole, too is fantastic in her role as a 17year old virgin, too much in love, but her heart wrenching disappointments has led her towards a fruitful family life while still loving Jake They were meant for each other, they could not escape their own destiny I wish there s an Epilogue or a continuation of this exceptional book
