SYNOPSIS:

“Hindi titibok at magwawala ang puso ko kapag nakikita at nakakasama kita if I don’t want you badly. And if my heart doesn’t love you. Iyon lang ang tanging paliwanag sa nararamdaman ko. Mahal kita. Mahal na mahal kita.”

Tinagurian ni Lenie si Gwynn—her playboy ex-boyfriend— bilang si Mr. Right-Now dahil lahat ng babaeng dumadaan sa palad nito ay agad na gustong makuha. Kahit minahal niya ito noong mga panahong gaga-in-love pa siya ay nagtanim pa rin ito ng sakit sa puso niya kaya naman nang muli silang magkita at magparamdam na naman sa kanya na tila ba gusto siyang magbalik sa buhay nito ay pinahirapan niya. Hindi kasi siya naniniwala na nagbago na si Gwynn. Subalit ipinakita at ipinaramdam sa kanya ng binata na ito na ang Mr. Right para sa kanya. Totoo kayang love is sweeter the second time around kung sakaling sagutin niyang muli ang nanunuyong binata? Dapat pa nga ba niyang ipagkatiwala sa ikalawang pagkakataon ang kanyang puso na hindi naman pala tumigil sa pagmamahal kay Gwynn?

MY THOUGHTS:
Gwynn and Leine’s story was all about second chances. They were a couple but separated ways because of Gwynn. After some time, they met again in a wedding. It was an awkward situation for Lenie because she still had a hard time getting over Gwynn. This was because their relationship did not have the proper closure it needed. On the other hand, Gwynn realised that he was still attracted to Lenie as he was interacting with her in the wedding. Out of all the girls he had a relationship, Lenie was the only woman he was considering going back to.Both were veterinarians and Gwynn used this as leverage to try and get Lenie’s affections back. He also asked his friends to help him win Lenie’s heart again. Eventually, he was able to win the love of Lenie again. As their renewed relationship blossomed Lenie was able to know more about Gwynn’s past and somehow this disappointed her. However,in the end this did not prevent them from having happy ending. Love still prevailed and as a bonus they got engaged.

I gave it a three hearts rating because i just liked the story. However, it had a small plot twist that was not life altering if seen in a different perspective. This is the third book which I read by Venus Franz and I liked the other two more than this story, but it also does not mean that I did not like this one.
