From childhood best friends to high school sweethearts…to a relationship so broken it seems impossible to fix…
I’ve loved Sofie Copewell for as long as I can remember.
She was all I ever wanted.
We said someday we’d have a family together and raise them on our ranch in Landmark Mountain.
She was my home. My forever.
I spent my whole life chasing her, hanging on her every word, and lighting up when she smiled at me.
And I never had a single doubt that she felt the same way.
Until she left and didn’t come back…
For eight years.
Now she’s returned, and I’m resentful and want answers.
Answers to why she left without a goodbye, taking all our dreams with her.
But as angry as I am and as much as I fight it, the electricity between us is still as strong as it was before.
And when I get the answers I’m looking for, I realize that she never stopped loving me either.
I want to believe our someday is now, but can I trust her not to leave again?
Someday is book two in the Landmark Mountain series, but each book can be read as a standalone.
The content warnings for Someday are the discussion of child and domestic abuse, and the death of a parent.
Here is the sensitive content I experienced while reading:

Someday was so sweet! I have been craving a childhood friends-to-lovers story that actually made me feel something! This book broke my heart and then made it so much better again! After being separated for 8 years, Sofie is back in town. Theo refuses to let her back into his life and his heart when she’s been gone without a trace since they were younger. Sofie’s past kept her from happiness with Theo before but everything is different now and she’s determined to be with him again.
First, I just want to say that I am a huge fan of Theo! Omgoodness I love him so much! A cute vet who’s considerate and compassionate, that’s him. After Sofie leaves, he’s left trying to figure out what went wrong and he becomes jaded and bitter. I admittedly still loved jaded, grumpy Theo just as much as I love sweet, thoughtful Theo. There was so much adoration in his words and his actions when it comes to Sofie. His big, big heart made me swoon over this man!
Second, Sofie is so strong for enduring all that she dealt with growing up! She made a new life for herself and finds a way to go after what she wants most, Theo. I can feel her pain because it was so clear that she loves him so much! She opens her heart and her pain up to him with a vulnerability I don’t think I could muster. I wanted her redemption more than I’ve wanted redemption for any character before! I was rooting for Sofie and Theo from the beginning!
Finally, the chemistry between these two characters was high and that spice was HOT! I loved them together! This couple is perfect for each other and I loved their HEA! I was definitely misty-eyed in that epilogue!
I cannot wait for the next book but first I’m gonna have to go back to read book one! I highly recommend this book to all my second chance romance readers and small town romance lovers! Thank you to the author and Valentine PR for the advanced copy!
There are several open door scenes in this book. Minimal innuendo throughout.
