There's Only Been You
Sara Jamison has done a pretty good job convincing herself she’s completely over Mike Andrews. Years ago, he ripped out her heart by accusing her of cheating, which totally devastated Sara. Without even listening to what she had to say, Mike disappeared from her life. Not only did his desertion cut her to the core, but Sara also discovered she was pregnant with their son.
Over time, she builds her whole life around her son, her brothers and uncle, and her thriving bakery. Now, eight years later, Mike is back in town and Sara convinces herself she wants nothing to do with him. But how will she explain why her son looks just like Mike if he happens to get a glimpse of him while in town?
Why does Mike show up again in Green Bay after all these years? What does he have to say for himself once he comes face-to-face with Sara again? Could there be a slim chance that Mike still has feelings for her? Does he ever find out about his son?
I have to say Ms. Rogers outdid herself yet again. From the first page, I was pulled into the story and I remained hooked right until the last sentence. I absolutely fell in love with Sara because she’s a survivor, turning a bad situation around and creating a happy home for herself and for her young son. On the flip side, Mike definitely pulled at my heart strings. I hated the fact he left Sara high and dry, but as you read along you realize every puzzle piece falls into place. As I understand it, this is the first book in the Jamison trilogy and I have no doubt Ms. Rogers will knock our socks off with book two. This author has a way of telling a story and pulling you in as if you’re a character in the book seeing everything firsthand. I highly recommend this book and promise you won’t be disappointed! But don’t take my word for it. Pick it up and see for yourself.
Book Blurb for There's Only Been You
Malicious lies, drugs and a videotape are the reasons young lovers Sara Jamison and Mike Andrews have spent the last eight years apart, each believing the other betrayed them.
Sara has no clue where Mike's been all these years, but she knows where she's been--busy raising their son. Two weeks after he accused her of cheating and disappeared from her life, Sara discovered she was something she never expected to be--an unwed pregnant teenager. But with the love and support of her annoyingly alpha-male family, she's managed to make a good life for herself and her young son. She even owns her own business, Sara's Bakery, which she's built into a thriving success. Sure, she works too hard and her social life is nonexistent, but for the most part, she’s content.
Until the day Mike walks into her bakery and back into her life.
Now a detective on the southside of Chicago, Mike returns to Green Bay for one reason--to bury the father he's despised his entire life, severing his last tie to the city that holds nothing but heartache for him thanks to the deceitful Sara Jamison. But after a couple of strange run-ins with Sara’s brothers, Mike is conflicted. Does he stay and try to figure out exactly what happened that night so long ago--or race back to Chicago as fast as he can?
