Blurb as per Goodreads
When Farrah walked into her lunch meeting, she didn’t expect to see him.
Her first love.
Her first heartbreak.
And now, her first client as a freelance interior designer.
It’s been five years, but she’ll never forget the way he shattered her.
He whispers pretty words, but she’ll never believe him.
Her body craves his, but she’ll never give him her heart.
Money. Looks. A booming sports bar empire.
On the surface, Blake has it all.
But inside, he’s haunted—both by nightmares of a tragic loss, and dreams of the girl he once betrayed.
When fate reunites them, he sees it as a sign:
It’s time to get the love of his life back.
No matter what it takes.
If the Sun Never Sets is book two of the If Love duet. It’s a steamy, angsty second chance romance with plenty of groveling and an HEA.
Story between Farrah and Blake continues after 5 years of their breakup in Shanghai. There paths have been crossed again in most unexpected way in New York. Now, Blake is successful businessman and has worked and succeeded in building his dream sports bar. This book has a backdrop of New York, different than that of Shanghai.
Farrah and Blake start with business relationship in this. Farrah accepts Blake offer as an interior designer to his apartment. This book delves more on Blakes past. Farrah struggles with trust issue which is acceptable but she fell, fast and hard than I expected. The mix of past, present and future of the couple is explained and written in perfect blend of drama and emotion.
Personally, I felt Blake’s action, reaction to situation as immature in this. At the end of Book 1, when Blake explains Sam about the situation and instances which led to his break up, Farrah listens to it. I just assumed, Farrah knew the whole story, but somehow that wasn’t the case here. There were some contradictions in terms of timelines on how long she worked in Kelly group vs she being freelancer.
Plot moved in steady pace. Secondary characters were still wonderful. I loved knowing what happened to them over the years. Writing style is easy and simple.
Overall, it’s a good sequel with nice conclusion. if you are a fan of HEA with lots of drama, emotions, angst and lots of colleague fun then this series is for you. Enjoy reading.
I volunteered to provide an honest review on an advance copy of this book.
