NBA star Chase Alexander, with all of his success, never realizes his greatest failure... that is until the woman of his dreams crosses his path. After years of doctoring on her best friend when they were kids, Kendal Winters is now a neurosurgeon and married with children of her own. Recently realizing everything is not always fair in love and war, she must decide to make peace with her cheating husband or to get even—if not both.

Will Kendal and Jason succumb or succeed in marriage if failure is not an option, or will Chase remind her that any love which starts to fade didn't really exist in the first place? Can they stop what never ended decades ago, or will they begin what never really started the Second Time Around?

Thanks @Sean for the transparency and kindred heart: “Brought me to tears. If only life was easy.”

Thanks @Fairytale for the kind words of encouragement: “You’ve truly captured the Rom-Com vibe, which I haven’t seen done well in a while. I like where you started things--in medias res--and look forward to hearing more backstory. I felt bad for the actual groom, but then I re-read your summary and decided he may just get what he deserves.” (New York)

Thanks @Rachael for the love and support: “Absolutely love this! Can’t wait to read more. You have me feeling all these emotions! I don’t know whether to cry for him or slap him silly!” (England)
