Romance Reviews Top Pick! “…the chemistry between [Cal and Delaney] ignites when they’re together. Like fire and water, the two created such steam that it was almost palpable.”
Does heartbreak really make you stronger or does it simply make it impossible to resist her the second time around?
After losing a love as big as Texas, he’s moved on…
After ten years in the military, Cal Maddox knows exactly what he wants: a quiet life in his hometown, a little piece of land, and the love of a good woman. Nothing on that list describes Delaney Shields, the woman who once jilted him. Now, she’s back in town, and with one kiss, their past attraction flames from teenage infatuation to full-fledged lust.
…but she’s back, sexier and sassier than ever…
Delaney never expects to see her first love, but a run-in with sexy-as-sin Cal sets off her craving for a second chance at the passion they once shared. Acting on those naughty fantasies would be disastrous, because she’s not the sticking kind, and Cal has roots a mile deep.
…and they’re both hiding heart-breaking secrets…
When Delaney is backed into a corner, her first instinct is to bolt. But with every kiss, every touch, she finds herself falling for the man she once believed was her soul mate. Will Cal be able to seduce his way back into her heart, or will her secrets from the past tear them apart for good?

Second chance romance perfection
When I started reading A Love to Last by Kelsey Browning, I thought I would enjoy it. I've always loved everything Kelsey has written, but this book went above and beyond that. Right from the start, it felt like this book was the one...like I needed to read it....like my own prophecy was being fulfilled.
Delaney and Cal (sigh...just saying their names makes my heart sigh!) are the perfect second chance love story. Laney has always been running. She's terrified of facing life with her heart and her emotions exposed. Cal spent some time running, too, but has come back home to help his father, Whit. Cal knows it's time to settle down...to allow love into his heart again. But knowing it and allowing it are two separate things.
I get all emotional trying to describe her perfectly written this book is. The characters could not have been any better. They were absolutely flawed, and absolutely perfect at the same time. I am so thrilled to have read this story, and to know that it is the first in a series. It was an honor to follow along with Laney and Cal. I really enjoyed the boot-making side of the story. I learned a lot and I think the prophecy aspect really kicked the story up a notch.
A Love to Last by Kelsey Browning has everything you could ever want in a sexy, contemporary romance. My heart laughed...cried...and laughed again. This is one of those books that you finish and you feel right in your heart that you've just experienced something incredible - what loving reading is all about. I received an advance copy for review purposes, but was not required to write a positive review. This review contains my honest opinion of this book. Well done, Kelsey. Thank you for the chance to read such a beautiful story.
