Book Blurb
Tapping into the notion that some women continue to attract the same type of men, This Time Will Be Different" explores what happens when a woman against her better judgement, dates the same unavailable man from her past, with the hope that this time will be different.

It's been a year since Ireland Jamison's heart was broken by Jay Evers, the man who refused to commit to her because of his on-again-off-again relationship with his high-school sweetheart. After licking her wounds, Ireland is ready and eager to fall in love once again, living by only one rule--never date an unavailable man.

On the evening of Ireland's birthday, she stumbles upon a chance encounter with no one other than Jay Evers, and he is just as charming and irresistible as ever. There's just one problem--he is still semi-involved with his ex-girlfriend, and Ireland knows that giving in to him again could cost her yet another broken heart.

This romantic drama serves up something sexy and provocative, proving that the road to love can be paved with many painful lessons and memorable moments. It's a story about paying attention to your past so that you don't always have to repeat it.

My Thoughts      
This Time Will Be Different is one of those books that one could easily relate to. The story is a familiar one.  At one point in time, who hasn’t found themselves second guessing the possibilities of rekindling a past romance?  Especially if you thought that person may have been The One.   If my time had not have been so limited, I would have read this book in one setting.

I was not fond of the main character Ireland because of the way the relationship ended.  In her case, I felt like she should have been going forward instead of backwards.  I’m all for second chances, but only if it’s worth it.  As sexy and charismatic as Jay was, he just wasn’t worth the energy.

Although the book was a little predictable at times, I still think it’s worth a read.  I think I mainly wanted to read it to see what Ireland would do.  I rolled my eyes and shook my head at every decision she made, but I was happy with her final decision.

Overall, I liked the story because it’s all about second chances and even though you want something bad, it’s not always good for you.  And I love it when the good guy gets the girl.

I have to be in the mood for books like this since the main character will likely get on my nerves
