The Choices I’ve Made by J.L. Berg

Release Date: October 1st
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Death is easy.

Surviving it? That’s the hard part.

Dr. Jake Jameson knows this all too well. Losing his mother at the age of eighteen, he walks away from his small hometown and the painful memories it holds, vowing to never return again.

Twelve years later, he finds himself driving back down the coast of North Carolina. When his father leaves him a small medical practice, he has no choice but to heed the call until he can find someone else to take it off his hands.

But coming back home means facing everything he left behind, including the one woman who might make it impossible to leave again.

Molly McIntyre has spent her entire life in one town. Taking over her parents’ small inn, she’s settled into a quiet, happy life. But all of that comes to an abrupt halt when Jake shows up at her door in need of a place to stay.

Molly loathes everything about this man, but she can’t find it in her heart to refuse his request.

After over a decade, these former lovers quickly discover what once burned brightly between them has only grown in their time apart. Soon they must decide if the choices they’ve made have led them back to each other for a second chance or one final goodbye.

About the Author:

I’m a California native, who lives in the South – Virginia to be exact. I still prefer sushi to fried chicken, avocados to okra, and I absolutely loathe humidity. I do love watching the seasons change though. My husband and I have been here for over a decade, and I still get giddy like a school girl every time it snows. It’s magical!

I’m married to my high school sweetheart, and we’ve been blessed with two beautiful daughters and two rescue pups I like to call my “coworkers”. I’m obsessed with chocolate, minions, anything Harry Potter and I love to watch re-runs of Friends and Gilmore Girls!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Choices I’ve Made by J.L. Berg was one of those books that sticks with you. I love books that have the what-if factor and this one has it in spades.

This was a new-to-me author so I wasn’t sure what to expect reading this book. I went into this blind and I was completely enamored from the first page to the very last.

It was a beautifully written story full of truths, heartbreak and healing. When a man broken by grief twelve years earlier comes back to his hometown, he’s not only faced with the ghosts of the past, but also with the what-ifs of the now broken woman he left behind.

“I love you, Jake Jameson, for a day, a month, and a thousand lifetimes. Welcome home.”

It speaks of true love, but sometimes that’s not enough. Jake and Molly had a complicated love that even after their years apart, it was like the were always together. Their love for one another never died.

Can two broken souls heal each other or are they forever doomed to be apart.

Was such an emotional read, the last part of the book almost broke me. Both had to find themselves to be whole before finding one another again to be truly happy and content.

I highly recommend this second change romance and can’t wait to read more from this author.
