Publication date: June 15th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
It’s been nearly a decade since Elle Sloan last saw Luke Hutchins. Close to ten years since she broke up with him over a single phone call, providing him with little explanation. Since the end of their relationship, Elle has done everything she could do to move on, marrying, proceeding forward with her life, almost allowing herself to completely forget about Luke.
Out of nowhere, Elle receives a phone call from Luke’s mother. Luke has been in a horrific car accident and, a month later, has just awoken from a coma. However, instead of celebrating, his family is stunned to learn that Luke is suffering from amnesia and only remembers his life as it was before his breakup with Elle. Not wanting to tell Luke that he and Elle aren’t together anymore for fear it may compromise his recovery, Elle is asked by Luke’s family to come to the hospital to see him. Their hope is that she will slowly be able to jog his memory and cushion the blow.
Guilt-ridden over how their relationship ended, Elle readily agrees, finding herself transported back in time with Luke to the life they once shared and the future they could have had together.
This is an inventive second chance romance with a difference. To receive a phone call ten years after the end of a relationship, and to drop everything and to come running proves the feelings are still there.
Poor Luke woke up after being in a coma, with retrograde amnesia taking him back ten years to when he was happy and in love with Elle. Elle finds the feeling are still there, but it was her fault they broke up.
This is a story where love does finally conquer all, both Elle and Luke are still in love and were meant to be. Even with the obstacles standing in their way. This is a loving romance that perhaps Elle didn’t think she deserved Luke, especially with her upbringing and her mother’s manipulations.
Now ten years later and wiser, love is as strong as ever. So sometimes love does conquers all.
