As an adventurous send-off to her childhood, eighteen-year-old Tate Jones travels with her grandmother from their small town in Northern California to London. But the vacation of a lifetime is wonderfully derailed by the appearance of two charming Vermont farmers: grandfather Luther and his handsome grandson Sam.
Sam and Tate fall hard and fast. For two glorious weeks, the couple share their hopes, dreams, and secrets. Sam admits he suspects his grandfather is dying and that this could be the last trip they take together, and Tate reveals that she is the hidden daughter of one of the biggest film stars in the world—a secret she’s never told anyone before.
But when Tate is exposed by a crush of cameras and reporters, she knows she’s been betrayed by the one person she thought she could trust. She is forced to decide whether she will return to her quiet life or embrace being in the public eye. So when Sam reappears in her world more than a decade later, can Tate forgive the past and rekindle the passion they shared on their magical trip abroad? And does she even want to?

“Shock is a cold hand on my shoulder, a complete standstill in my brain and chest and veins.”-Twice In A Blue Moon
Not my first read by the author but I think my official blog review. I haven’t read enough to remember the style very well, so I was kind of going in blind-ish! I will say on a side note that it did take me a little to pick up on this one.
Tate & Sam met during a vacation in London. When they met it was at unhappy times, see Sam was going through something and Tate well she was just being the 18 year old self. [Sam is 21] so when they spend 2 beautiful and sweet weeks together where secrets, passion and kisses were shared. Only, when Tate feels betrayed…she blames the only person who could have done it. Sam. Where do they go from there? Well, more then a decade later when they cross path’s again…it is when Tate is a famous actress on a rise to more stardom. Forced to work together, old feelings come boiling up and they both have no other choice then to address the big elephant in the room. Which sounds like a great idea right? Well, some things are better meant to stay under the rug.
Things that drove me nuts a little: a lot of side characters that were sort of thrown in, I wasn’t sure why and what they contributed to the story at times. It didn’t pick up for me until later, but I really did enjoy the ending. Again, I think mainly the side characters that kind of threw me off at times. Other then that, I enjoyed the story line and the main characters.
