Now and Then by Mira Lyn Kelly

Brynn Ahearn is gorgeous, fun, and not just a sports nut but an NBA camera woman whose work takes her all over the country. In other words, she’s a walking male fantasy—or at least, she would be if she weren’t so busy keeping the guys at bay. The fact is, with Brynn’s con-man father fresh out of jail and back in her life, dating is just too risky. Haunted by memories of her past, she couldn’t ask any man to gamble with his life for love—even one as addictive as Ford Meyers.

Ford can’t believe his luck when he walks into a bar in Chicago’s Wicker Park and gets an eyeful of Brynn, the one that got away. After the gorgeous redhead blew him off in college, Ford got on with his life and made his fortune as a bestselling game designer, but he’s never found a woman who compared to Brynn. No stranger to success, Ford is used to getting what he wants—and after a scorching stolen kiss, what he wants is a second shot with his first love. To get it, he just has to convince her that he’s man enough to take on the past she can’t leave behind.

This is the third book in the series – and Ford definitely deserves a happily ever after, having watched the rest of the gang succeed in the earlier books in the series. He even had to 'kiss as a fake date' in book one, so it is time. However, he has been hung up on the one that got away for ten years...until she reappears and this time he will fight for what he loves. I do recommend that you read them all, as they are fun, and link together, but this is a good story in its own right too.

Ford is without a doubt fabulous! He makes some mistakes, but then faced with a woman who will not be honest with him, they are forgivable. Brynn was a more difficult character to like – and given her past, it wasn't difficult to see why. I think Ms. Kelly wrote Brynn's awkwardness beautifully. And as things unravel, and develop, we get to see what she could be like, if only she believed she had a chance. As the relationship breaks the boundary of sex only – not that there were many boundaries left on that front – we see how protective they both are, and how once again communication would reduce drama!

There are also some fun bits, especially when we get to see the rest of gang and how they are getting on, with even a new baby to coo over. There were a few points when I did actually think that this wasn't going to be the happily ever after I had grown to rely on, but thankfully I was not disappointed.

Having spent her twenties working and playing in the Windy City, she’s now settled with her husband in rural Minnesota, where their four beautiful children and naughty dog provide an excess of action and entertainment.
