When heiress Simone Duvalier sashays back into Rafael Alexander's life, Rafe can't wait for her to head back home and leave him to his empire-building in Australia. They once shared so much, but all that remains are memories and the desire to bed her....

Simone has never forgotten fiercely ambitious, achingly sexy Rafael--and neither has her traitorous body! But when a princely secret and an unplanned pregnancy threaten to change everything...can this dark-hearted bad boy become a prince and a father?
I've been on a kick of reading the smaller romance books in my collection this month, and this is the second book I've read that was a second chance romance with fun, and strong female characters.  Normally when you read these even if they are fun romances, the woman is at some sort of disadvantage to the man, even if it's just financial or social class. This time they are on even footing, they grew up together and fell in love and when faced with moving into a new part of their relationship fears ruled and they broke up.

Now there is a wedding and their siblings are getting married and they have to be civil with each other.  Simone would like to make amends and either get back with Rafael as friends, she misses the companionship they always had.  Rafael hasn't quite healed from their break years ago and can't be int eh same room as her much less be friends again.  And as their meddling siblings, time and circumstances work together Rafael and Simone find themselves fighting to discover if they can make another go of it.

I loved this second chance romance. I loved that they both were successful in their own right, but in this one place, and for the first time in a long time the man isn't a manwhore 9nothing wrong with it but sometimes it would be nice to have a nice guy and we got him here).   I loved that they could admire each other and their successes and that when they tried to get back together they had a few kinks to work out but they had a common goal.  I loved their conversations and their journey to their HEA. I loved that even if it meant losing him Simone was willing to stand in and defend him, even if he repaid that loyalty with his foolish attitude. 
This was a great story even with the crazy reveal that leads them to come together. I really enjoyed their adventures and am going to read their siblings' story as well. 
Happy Reading my loves,
