This was a very realistic second chance romance.
Oliver and Lucy had a strong bond since they were 15 but after Oliver gets a job offer in Australia he accepts and leave Lucy behind. Now he’s a famous chef but he’s also the one that killed their happily ever after. Does he get another one or he lost his chance in forever? Lucy’s reactions to Oliver’s actions were at times immature. That’s a fact that made her even more realistic. I mean everyone gets to be immature at times, especially when someone hurts us deeply. Oliver didn’t give me many reasons to root for him. One time he was sweet and considerate and then he did something that made me change my mind. It was really good to see what really happens after the happily ever after in a story. After all not everything works out the first time!!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Belinda Missen is an award-winning and best-selling author, screenwriter, and freelance writer from Geelong, Australia.
A reader from an early age, Belinda began writing her own stories shortly after her love affair with Steven Spielberg’s film Jurassic Park began. What began as fan-fiction soon took deeper root, and she was scribbling out strange little stories in empty notebooks she found laying around the house.
With qualifications in transport and office administration, and a combined career of fifteen years in these industries, Belinda decided to uproot everything in 2013 and return to her first love of writing. She now writes full-time, between cups of coffee, binge watching television, and feeding her cats and husband.
In April 2016, she was awarded the JOLT Courthouse Youth Arts Award in the Inspire 26+ Category for her piece Obsession.
In February 2017, her book Love And Other Midnight Theories clawed its way to the top of the Amazon charts in its category of Performing Arts, beating JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. True story – she has the screenshots to prove it.
