Product Description

~ "It is heartbreaking to read the story of their separation, two people who never got over each other no matter the involvements in between...and swooningly, gorgeously romantic to see them working their way back to each other through poem and song." --LeeAnn, Goodreads reviewer and bookseller

She was the girl.
The only girl.
The only girl I ever wanted.
The only girl I ever loved.
The only girl I could ever love.

And I killed it.
I destroyed it.
I threw her love away.

For nine years, I've kept the memory of her locked in the deepest corner of my heart...all the while hating myself for what I did to her.
To us.

Now, without warning, she's walked back into my life.

I'm covered in tats.
She's covered in Polo.
I write heavy metal songs.
She writes chick-lit.
My eyes are angry.
Her eyes are sad.

I still long for her with every fiber of my being.
But I have no idea if she feels the same.

I guess it's time to find out.

After We Break is a standalone novel previously published as Playing for Love at Deep Haven.

**NOTE: This book contains scenes of detailed intimacy and liberal use of profanity. It is intended for readers 18+**

Format: Kindle Edition
28y.o. writer is dismayed to have a mix-up of her vacation lease with 28y.o. songwriter-band guitarist Hero. She hasn't seen him since he left Yale for Julliard, after their ill-fated summer romance 9 years ago. As in love as she still is with him, she doesn't know how much she can trust his promises to love her forever. He broke her heart badly in the past and they've both changed a lot since then. When she finds out that he deceived her about her book contract, what hope do they have of a future together?

This book didn't come alive until about page 50. The first 50 was a slow introduction to Hero and heroine's current circumstances. After about page 50, the romance became more focused, the writing more emotionally-pulling, and the main characters more exciting. It more than made up for the tepid 1st 50 pages. It's a second-chance romance with Hero trying to atone for the big mistake of letting heroine go 9 years ago. He consistently showed her how much he loved her in word and deed. And he made some big and secret sacrifices to do so.** His reasons for doing so and heroine's subsequent responses to him dumping her were also wrangled out. And it was poignant to see the long-term effect of their big misunderstandings. I loved how we saw their character growth in process, especially heroine's. It conveyed how love heals and transforms for the better.

Playing for Love at Deep Haven
Enchanted Places Book One
Kate Regnery
This story was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review by Net Galley.
Nine years ago Violet Smith was going to Yale and writing poetry, Zach Aubrey was also going to Yale and studying music, they lived on the same floor at the dorm, they spent all their free time together. They spent an unforgettable weekend together where the young first time lovers learned everything about each other. She professed her love, he ran.
Nine years later, he is writing music for heavy metal bands, and she is trying to write her second novel. Only thing is , her first novel was the story of their love. Serious writer's block now.
She has a friend that offers her a place to stay in Maine, He has a friend that offers him a place to stay in Maine, Two lovers from long ago that have not gotten over each other are now thrown together once more. He has changed, he has multiple piercings, many muscles and multiple tattoes, even if one of them is a flower in honour of her. She has changed, she is more preppy, snobby, has the illusion of being high maintenance instead of the carefree girl he remembers.
But oh, the chemistry is still there, they try to ignore it, but it sizzles, he broke her heart throwing her declarations of love back at her saying she was only a friend. He removes his piercings to try to make her happy. I just want to get to know you again.
There is so much hurt still there, so much that still needs to be talked about, that needs to be settled. They vow to explore these new feelings, to be honest with one another but it is hard. He has never had anyone besides her tell him that they loved him. She has never said the words to anyone else. He is eager to admit his mistakes and move on.

When I started reading this book, I could see the formulaic aspect of it immediately and I worried that the book would be impossible to finish. Once I put aside that thought and allowed myself to enjoy the book, I actually finished it in one evening. The writing is well done. While not needing a dictionary beside me to look up unknown words, it did not talk down to me. The interspersion of poetry is a really nice touch, as is the addition of lyrics from a variety of musicians. For many of the references I ended up looking up the songs that were mentioned to listen to later and I really feel they added a depth to the book that was otherwise missing. The music references also helped to tie the story line together.

The romantic scenes fit in well to the story line, and did not feel uncomfortable like some other books I've read. The dialog and words used conveyed the actions but still left enough to the imagination.

The character development was clear and I felt that with a few changes, I could be Violet. I appreciated learning more about Zach from his point of view and found myself growing attached to him. I cheered for him when he made a smart move, and grumbled at him when he took a mis-step. Admittedly I have a fondness for bad boys and was really hoping for the best and I was not disappointed.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading more from Katy Regnery.
