Review by Sara Steven:

At fifteen, I knew I had found the girl I would one day marry.

At seventeen, I was forced to move across the country and leave her behind, breaking both of our hearts.

Now, I'm back in Everton and ready to live the life I always wanted. I only hope that after so much time, Faith is willing to give me a second chance.

She still takes my breath away, and I’m going to prove to her that things are different this time around. She has always been the one who got away, and nothing will stand in our way. I’ll make sure of it.

Until my family needs me, and I have to choose between them and the woman I love.  (Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads)

I’m sad that this will be my last trip to Everton, but ending on the story of Easton and Faith had been the perfect way for Francisco to say goodbye.

Who doesn’t want a second chance at love, particularly when it involves a first love? That’s where Easton finds himself, when he finally has the opportunity to move back to Everton. Having been born and raised there before moving away to big city life when he was a teen, the hardest part for him in those days was parting ways with Faith, a girl who he felt he’d given his heart to. I really enjoyed the premise behind a long-lost love that hasn’t been seen in several years, suddenly reappearing. 

For Faith, that’s what it is for her; a long lost love suddenly reappearing out of the blue. It’s obvious that she has had a very hard time forgetting Easton, so much so that it has dictated her love life, or lack thereof. It seems most of her friends in Everton have somebody, and she’s often been the odd man out. Yet with Easton back, it’s hard not to have the old feelings she’d had back when they were teenagers, yet at the same time, she’s cautious. So much time has passed, not to mention that they are both adults now. Are they two entirely different people, and too different, to even consider making a go of things?

As with the rest of the Love in Everton crew and their own stories, we get to see struggles surface between Easton and Faith, particularly when it comes to Faith’s trust in Easton, and Easton’s need to protect his family, at all cost. So much so, it could be a detriment for him and for the life he wants to live in Everton and with Faith. I thought Francisco did a great job of showing those issues, in a way that felt honest and real, careful to show it in a way that makes sense and is fitting for both characters. And, this wouldn’t be a Francisco experience, if there weren't amazingly written steamy scenes sprinkled throughout. If readers have only scratched the surface with one or two books from this series, I highly recommend diving head first into all of them. And if you’ve never read one yet? You really should. All good things must come to an end, and I’ve enjoyed every single one of the Love in Everton books. So long, wonderful Everton!
