This time, she's calling the shots.

Peggy Clarkson is returning to her alma mater with one goal in mind: confront Elliott Brooks, the man who ruined her for all others, and remind him of what he's been missing. Even after three years, seeing him again is like a punch in the gut, but Peggy's determined to stick to her plan. Maybe then, once she has the upper hand, she'll finally be able to move on.

In the years since Peggy left Cincinnati, Elliott has kept his focus on football. No distractions and no complications. But when Peggy walks back onto his practice field and into his life, he knows she could unravel everything in his carefully controlled world. Because the girl who was hard to forget is now a woman impossible to resist.

Okay so I have to admit that I’m not really a fan of second chance romances so I had a little misgivings going into reading but this story did second chance romance so damn right, it was so on point! And I was a very, very happy reader. I loved the intensity and depth of the story and it was that instensity that pulled me in and held my attention throughout with the multiple issues raised.

Even though the characters were typical, college coach and popular cheerleader, their situation was filled with complications, depth and heat that made it super interesting. Peaking my curiosity to want to know more and see how their lives would change for the better. The author did such a great job evolving the characters and keeping me along for the ride.

The romance was super blazing and complex and I loved how even though they had an instant connection things was far from easy for them and they really struggled through dealing with the issues of their past about themselves as well as their relationship. What I enjoyed the most was the flash backs of the beginning of their relationship alongside the story since this was a second chance romance with strong history between them. Being given the full scope of their relationship with scenes that were super intense and packed with information, made the story much more enjoyable for me.

I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this story as much as the past stories and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Overall I loved reading Too Hard To Forget by Tessa Bailey and can’t wait for the final story to unfold.
