A reissue from her 1989 book by the same title. I prefer her Romantic susupense books, but she writes so well, I'll read anything of hers.

This was a very quick, light read therefore I would recommend it if you like those types. A very sweet and simple love story.

Great book for quick reading in-between a series or good light reading after a heavy novel. Simple romance and story line. I like Tami Hoag.

Yes, it's your typical romance book, but it's fun to read. Hoag's characters, Jace and Rebecca have great chemistry, and you root for them from the beginning of the book to the end as Jace tries to make up for hurting Rebecca years ago. Hoag has added some rather interesting supporting characters to the book like Rebecca's father and their neighbor, Muriel, who are also on Jaces side. A fun romance to relax with.

Seven years before, a handsome ball player had broken Becca's heart, and now he was back. Injured in a car wreck, Jace returned to rehab--and to Becca. Could she ever trust the reckless playboy who had showed her the way to passion?

Tami Hoag started her writing career writing romances and this is one of those early stories. I can certainly understand why she changed to mysteries this book plodded along slowly.

Seven years ago, Jace Cooper and Becca Bradshaw defined hot couple. However, Jace had a chance at one of the major league baseball teams and he left Becca to follow his dream. Now hes back with a serious knee injury that could sideline him forever and he wants his former physical therapist to work her magic again.

Becca is not of a mind to walk down that path; once was enough. Jace promises that he has changed but Becca has a long memory and clearly remembers Jaces trail of broken promises.

I just felt there weren't enough subplots to keep the story interesting. The story was predictable and slow moving.

They say that each of us becomes an entirely new person every seven years. But Rebecca Bradshaw doesn't feel any different when an old lover shows up severely injured at the hospital where she runs the physical therapy department. Seven years ago baseball player Jace Cooper left her without a second thought or the chance to share the life=changing secret she swore she'd keep from him forever. Now he was back, wanting both her help and a second chance. Becca hadn't changed, and she didn't believe Jace had either, but as she helped him repair his broken body and his fractured past, she would find she was wrong on both counts. The only thing that had stayed the same was the most important thing of all-and now suddenly time was running out.
