What do you do when your past comes knocking?
Six hundred and ninety-five days. That’s how long it’s been since Jude’s fiancé broke off their engagement. With the help of his brother, Jude glued the broken pieces of his heart back together, but when his ex shows up on his doorstep late one evening, Jude fears it will fall apart again.
Two years ago, Vincent made a terrible mistake. He left the love of his life for stupid, ill-advised reasons. It took a traumatic event to bring what was truly important in his life into focus. Older and wiser, he’s now ready to do whatever it takes to win Jude back.
Their chemistry is as explosive as ever, but will they be able to work through the real issues? Can trust once broken be rebuilt?

What did the reviewers think?
Sarina at Love Bytes gave it 4 out of 5 hearts:
“The story itself was fairly laid back and despite its shorter length, made me feel as though I was reading something quite a bit longer. There was a lot packed into this one without things feeling rushed or shorted in some way, which was nice.”
Angela at Wicked Reads gave it 4 out of 5 stars:
“While this is only my third book by this author, Nell Iris writes the kind of romance novellas I adore – stories that make me feel, that make me hope, and that let me imagine the couple’s happily ever after because I’ve gotten to see into their lives and their hearts long enough to feel like I know them.”
Michelle at Joyfully Jay gave it 4 out of 5 stars:
There is music layered in as Jude is a music teacher, as well as a proficient pianist, and it adds to their story. This book offers an overall good read with two characters learning from their mistakes while getting back on track and will leave you smiling by the last page.
