Synopsis from Goodreads:

As a teenager, Samantha Carlton used a career in modeling to break free from her painful childhood—walking away from her reckless twin sister, an alcoholic mother, and the boy she loved. Yet she never outran the guilt of abandoning her family. When the past shows up on her doorstep in the form of her late sister’s daughter, Sam opens her home and her heart to the girl she never knew existed. But it’s not so easy to face the man she left behind…

Sam had shattered Trevor Kincaid’s heart, and he’d sought comfort in her sister’s arms. But he’d pledged to shield his daughter, Grace, from the drama that followed the Carlton women. Now Grace has tracked down Sam, and Trevor is forced to deal with the one woman he wanted to forget.

History has a way of repeating itself, and the sparks between Sam and Trevor reignite an old flame. But as much as Sam wants a new future, is walking away again easier than risking her heart for a second chance at love?

My review:

I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way alters my opinion of the work.

This book was kind of funny. The main characters are in their early thirties (I think), but it felt like I was reading about a couple of 17-year-olds. It was really just a YA novel with YA characters in “adult” situations, haha. Does that make sense?

There was nothing necessarily wrong with the story. The romance was kind of cute. I’m just a little bit over reading about these ridiculously good-looking people with outrageously sad histories and family problems. I’m sure there are real people like this out there, but I’m simply not interested in reading about them anymore.

Predictability aside, the book was fairly fast-paced and easy to read. I still wanted to know how it would end (even though there were no surprises), and I did manage to finish the book in one sitting. That’s saying something.

Tell Me Again was not my cup of tea. Or maybe it was, but there was a little too much milk and not enough sugar?
