Sam Brandis was Tate Jones’s first: Her first love. Her first everything. Including her first heartbreak.
During a whirlwind two-week vacation abroad, Sam and Tate fell for each other in only the way that first loves do: sharing all of their hopes, dreams, and deepest secrets along the way. Sam was the first, and only, person that Tate—the long-lost daughter of one of the world’s biggest film stars—ever revealed her identity to. So when it became clear her trust was misplaced, her world shattered for good.
Fourteen years later, Tate, now an up-and-coming actress, only thinks about her first love every once in a blue moon. When she steps onto the set of her first big break, he’s the last person she expects to see. Yet here Sam is, the same charming, confident man she knew, but even more alluring than she remembered. Forced to confront the man who betrayed her, Tate must ask herself if it’s possible to do the wrong thing for the right reason… and whether “once in a lifetime” can come around twice.
Twice in a Blue Moon was my first read on 2021, and I picked a good one! I throughly enjoyed this read. I love Christina Lauren books, their writing style is very much a favourite of mine. I’ve almost ticked all of their books of my TBR.
This one was great, it wasn’t at all what I expected, the first part of the book being when Tate and Sam, the main characters meet at a young age, I loved their meeting and the initial flirting and getting to know each other stage, they were so cute.
But then, bomb a bit of an unexpected bombshell twist, oh I was raging with it. I honestly had no clue how this book was going to go.
Fast forward to over ten years later abs oaths cross in a different way, each of them leading a very different life, I hadn’t expected them to turn out how they did, but I loved it. They meet and must work together, while trying to remain professional, which is hard, considering.
I loved the dynamic between them, even after so many years. The way they were written was fantastic, the story was fast paced and interesting, and the romance was typical CLo, they totally know how to write a really fantastic romance that keeps you hooked. If you love romance or if this has interested you, I’d urge you to pick it up or another CLo book!
