Love You Again by Julia Kent Release Blitz

Love You Again. New York Times Bestselling Author. Julia Kent.

An unexpected rescue rekindles an old romance between a single dad widower and a woman caught in a small town scandal that made her flee the one place where she belongs. Can a second chance at first love end in a happily ever after?

Luke Luview has given up on love. Finally ready to let go of his late wife’s clothes, the grieving small-town police officer and single dad thinks he’s hearing things when he opens the charity box door. Who knocks from the inside of a donation bin?

The raccoon he assumes is in there turns out to be way prettier – and very familiar. Rescuing the first girl he ever kissed means life has dealt him a wild card with Kylie Hood, his late wife’s best friend who left town suddenly fifteen years ago under a cloud of scandal.

Kylie Hood will never depend on a man again. Dumped by her boyfriend and fired by his parents from her children’s programming job at their ski resort in rural Maine, she hits rock bottom while throwing out her ex’s clothes — along with her phone and car keys.

Being rescued by Luke Luview, of all people, is a gift and a curse. The boy she once loved is now all grown up, everything her ex wasn’t – and absolutely off limits.

Accepting his offer to be his temporary nanny while she job searches in New York City, Kylie falls hard for his sweet daughter, and even harder for Luke. A clause in her employment contract means they can’t fraternize, but fate has other plans, and forbidden fruit is twice as sweet.

As the town she reluctantly left years ago accepts her more and more, and Luke makes it clear he wants ta second chance with her in their close-knit community, Kylie has to decide: an exciting new career in Manhattan on her own, or an instant family and a sense of belonging in her small hometown?

And as Luke wrestles with the pain of being left behind by his wife’s accidental death, he has to balance his responsibilities to his daughter with his own needs. Needs he’s ignored for far too long.

Needs only Kylie can meet.

But not if she leaves.

Can Luke and Kylie rekindle their first love and find a new future together in a place where love conquers all?

If you’re looking for a fun read about first kisses and second chances, featuring a hot single-dad police officer and his accidental nanny, set in a small town in New England, with a golden retriever named Jester, a heroine whose dream in life is to run a fairy camp, and a hero who wants to build a place where everyone belongs–then this is your book.

Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and maybe some edible glitter, and get your happy meter ready as you read the second book in the Love You, Maine, series–where love isn’t just a feeling… it’s a way of life.

A loud, grumbly groan was unmistakable, the sound setting off all the anger inside that she had suppressed for the last three months.

And then the hinged door creaked open, cold air blowing in. A head appeared, eyes dark in the shadows.

“What did you say your name is?” he asked sharply, as if he expected compliance.


“How long have you been living in there?”


“I just got stuck! Maybe a half hour ago?”

“You know these aren’t good places to sleep.”

“Why would I want to sleep in here?”


Bang bang bang

The hard knock to her left made her jump.

“Anyone else in there with you?”


“Are you in there with a man?”

“Why would I be in here with a man?”

“Or a woman?”


“Ma’am, I am not one to judge, but plenty of people use these donation bins for less than legal reasons, so I have to ask: Are you in there with a john?”

“Who is John?” she squeaked.

He cleared his throat with meaning. “A john. You know. A paying customer.”

Horror washed over Kylie as she realized what he was implying.

No. Not implying.

Outright saying.

“YOU THINK I AM A PROSTITUTE?” she bellowed, mustering every ounce of diaphragmatic energy to unleash whatever demons resided inside her vocal cords.

“I’m not judging, ma’am.”



You make the empty spaces in my heart stop echoing.

M/F Second-Chance Romance

Love You Again is the second book in the series, set in small-town Luview "Love You", Maine. The town that loves everything red or heart. Even the police cars are pink to show their love.

The opening of this story is both hilarious and sweet, all wrapped in a warm poncho. You meet Kylie. She's back in the town where she feels like she grew up. After a disastrous breakup and consequential firing from her job, Kylie is back to figure out what she truly wants now. Kylie knows that she wants to find someone to love but feels like that's a million miles away for her.

When Luke, the local police officer, finally decides that it's time to start moving forward instead of just existing, he finds himself at a clothing donation box. His wife had a tragic accident and he's been slightly lost without her. But his daughter, Harriet, needs him. She's hilarious, fun, energetic, and he loves her dearly. His family has done all they can to help out in his time of grief, but with a little push from them, he knows that it's time to move forward in his life. What he doesn't expect is to find Kylie.

Now that Kylie and Luke have seen each other, it's sparks all over again. But with a past that hurts still and unanswered questions looming, can Luke and Kylie make their professional relationship work?

Harriet and Kylie form a bond that is so sweet. And while the past is still out there, Kylie hopes that she can forge a new path forward. With her eye on the prize, will she get side-tracked back in her hometown?

You'll be cheering for this couple to find a way. Secrets are discovered, love is in the air, but can Luview work its magic with these two? You won't be disappointed and I can't wait for more Luview couples.

I have been waiting for Luke's story since I read the first book in this series. Losing his wife in the way he did was painful to read, so he needed to get his happily ever after.

After several months of waiting for her ex-boyfriend to come get his stuff, Kylie takes his belongings to the closest donation drop-off bin. While dropping a bag through the door, her phone and keys fall in too. Now she is stuck in the cold with no phone to call for help and no keys to crank her car and stay warm. She falls into the dark and nasty bin when she tries to reach through the drop-off door. Now she has her phone and keys but no cell signal. After waiting a while, someone finally comes along.

Luke didn't expect someone to answer when he drops the clothes from the day his wife died in the donation bin. He is surprised to find Kylie stuck in the bin.

Kylie is now back in the town where she grew up and she can't believe Luke is still here. Luke offers her a job as his nanny, and she accepts, telling him she is only in town for a few months. He plans on changing her mind and she stays in town and with him. And what better place for a second chance than in Luview (Love You), Maine.

I loved everything about this story, it was filled with funny scenes, heartbreaking past pain, love, and a happily ever after. Luke, Kylie, and Harriet were the main characters, but you have to love his family and friends and her sister. Everyone was all for them getting together, including the whole town. I cannot wait for Luke's sister, Colleen's, story in Love You More.



I refuse to do this halfway, Kylie. It’s all or nothing with me, and I’ll give you nothing less than my all.
