How many characters or even people in real life actually say:
“I never thought I would return to the town I grew up in”
“I wanted to leave there so fast after graduation”
“I always imagined bigger and better things for myself.”
It seems like many second chance romance stories start with this same ideal. The main character is coming home after trying to live life somewhere else, usually a big city. Say Something starts out that way but quickly turns into something more! Not just one main character is returning to the small hometown they grew up in, but both of them are! Danny and Jess are high school sweethearts who grew up together, got married, moved away, divorced, and returned home to the small town that brought them together. Where family means everything. Where love always win.
“Nothing in love is unforgivable”
I love these characters so much. Their heartaches, their frustration, their growing up moments.
“If there was one thing I had learned over the years, it was that one of the most crucial parts of adulthood was recognizing and then admitting when you needed help.”
This author and book is new to me so I cannot wait to read more from this author. I highly recommend this story.
