Everyone lies around the holidays. We lie about the money we’re spending. We lie that we’re following our diets.

Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to spend a few months on a concert tour traveling the country? Did I mention that the famous musician headlining it is the ex-husband who walked out on you?

When I met Levi Truin, we were young, rich, famous, and beautiful. Nothing could go wrong, we had the world at our fingertips. Except millions of dollars, marriage and a baby all before twenty two isn’t all fun and games. And when my indiscretion caused it to come crashing down, we were just another Hollywood couple on the cutting room floor.

Seven years later, Levi and I are the poster-children for exemplary co-parenting. Attending red carpet events in support of each other, Sunday night dinners for the sake of our daughter, and her private school functions where we save seats and make polite conversation. The articles paint us in the healthiest of lights, because none of them know the truth.

So when he wants to take our daughter on tour, I have a decision to make. Let her traipse around venues with a nanny, or tag along and somehow survive sleeping in a bunk below my ex for months.

We go on the road, taking our demons and heartbreaks with us. And as we spend nights together with the highway lights flashing past the windows, that familiar spark reignites. Old hurts are discussed, wounds I guard tight are exposed, and my ex-husband makes confessions I’ve been waiting years for. Against all odds, he might just be able to love me again.

But then the dirty details of our long ago breakup get leaked to the press, and the newly fledgling relationship might be doomed from the start.

Lies, silence, and miscommunication are the things that ripped us apart. Can we push past our scars to reunite our family after everything we’ve been through?

Say You Love Me Again is a standalone Romance about Sophie and Levi.

When I started reading Say You Love Me Again, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t read the synopsis and just started reading. I didn’t expect this story to be so heartbreaking, emotional, painful and beautiful. This book isn’t just a Second Chance Romance, it’s so much more. This book talks about miscommunication, about postpartum depression, and about heartbreak. I’m really happy that Carrie Aarons decided to write this book because I just know so many people will relate to the main character, Sophie and her postpartum experience.

Say You Love Me Again is a book about Sophie and Levi. You read in the present, but you also get to know what happened 7 years ago and why Sophie and Levi got a divorce. I really liked both characters and getting to know both sides of the story. As I mentioned before, this isn’t just a regular Second Chance Romance. Carrie Aarons took the time to fully explain how Sophie dealt with her postpartum depression and what caused certain things, … I liked that the characters got a second chance, and that they could share it with their daughter Hart. Hart is just so adorable!

Say You Love Me was such a good book, but to me it started a bit slow. It was a bit hard to get into the story, but once I read more about Sophie and Levi, I wanted to know how their story was going to end. But besides the slow start, I really enjoyed reading Sophie and Levi’s story, and there were a few times when I was smiling while reading. Carrie Aarons wrote another amazing book and I’m looking forward to her next one!
