Fourteen years earlier Lorelei Parker gave her innocence and heart to her best friend, Cole Williams, but instead of a forever love she ended up heartbroken and losing him. After a long absences Cole, now a local football hero, has returned to his hometown hoping to garner Lorelei's forgiveness. For them absences has not made the heart fonder but the divide greater. The unresolved manner in which their relationship ended makes healing and moving forward seem insurmountable. If they can put their past behind them, Lorelei and Cole may find a second chance at a future together.

Needed a quick short story and this did deliver. 

The story follows Lorelei and Cole. The two broke up 14 years ago. Years have past and Cole is coming back home for two reasons: work in town and get Lorelei's forgiveness for leaving. Time does not heal all wounds and it will not be an easy task to get her forgiveness and love. 

This was a sad story especially after learning about the BIG reason why they broke up. It was so sad. Nearly got a tear out of me. I hated Cole at first....but then after he could explain I felt for him too. It was rough for both parties. So sad. 

I'm glad this wasn't an insta-love and forgiveness. It took until pretty much the end. It was needed. I honestly wish this had been longer because I feel like their road to forgiveness and love needed to be fleshed out more. I think it would've been an even better story and I I would have loved it even more. 

The narrator was pretty good. I wouldn't mind listening to more. 

But yes - I liked this and it did work. But I think it would've been WAYYYYYYYYYY better longer. I for sure recommend this if you need something quick and has a touch of feels. A pretty good narrator. I'll give this 4 stars.
