Book: The Man She Knew (By Way of the Lighthouse)
Author: Loree Lough
Genre: Contemporary Romance
My Rating: ★★★★★
Fourteen years ago, one reckless act cost Ian Sylvestry everything, including the girl he planned to marry. Since then, he has fought hard to turn his life around. Returning to his Baltimore town after serving a prison term was the first step. Winning back Maleah Turner's trust is a far more daunting challenge. From their first sparks-flying reunion, it's obvious they still have powerful feelings for each other. In fact, they might be even stronger together now. But if their second chance is going to work, Maleah has to believe that Ian is a changed man. She really wants to believe…but she simply isn't convinced.
A heartwarming second chance romance!
The Man She Knew is a contemporary romance of two high school lovers that were torn apart by one night and one bad decision. Now years later, the feelings of years ago still running high, they are forced to work together on a project. While Maleah receives constant conflict from her family about the no good ex-con Ian Sylvestry, she sees another side to him that everybody seems to love and talk high praises of. For an ex-con, Ian has connections with many influential individuals.
The Man She Knew was a charming and well-written story. There were many twists and turns that formed a believable plot. There was a lot of action and romance to keep my interest piqued. This author really knows how to build up the story and keep your attention to the very end. The characters were well developed and engaging. Loree Lough did a great job of bringing out several feelings throughout this story – heartache, laughter, love, and hope.
This is the first book that I have read by Loree Lough and will certainly not be my last. I was not disappointed at all. I recommend The Man She Knew to anyone that enjoys reading a heartwarming romance that will give you the all the feelings and put a smile on your face.
