Stronghold by Ana Ashley

A second chance at love? Or a second chance to ruin everything?

When Skyler spots the new bartender at Vino and Veritas, his body responds before the guy even turns around. But when he does, it takes only a heartbeat for recognition to set in and for sparks to fly. Judson’s been gone for ten years, but he’s the man Skyler never forgot. Or forgave.

The last place Judson wants to be is back home in Burlington, living with family. Not so long ago he was a world-class chef with the lifestyle to prove it. Now he’s serving drinks and flying under the radar until he can get the hell out again. But when his childhood best friend reenters his life, looking finer than any entree at a five-star restaurant, he wonders if it’s time to update his menu of life choices.

Working through past wounds with Skyler won’t be easy, though, especially with family obligations--and the occasional dairy cow--interfering. When their loyalty is tested, will their newly built stronghold be sturdy enough to withstand the storm?


Skyler and Judson were childhood friends but they don't see each other for ten years.
When Judson comes back after his culinary studies and chef experience in Europe he is fascinated from this grown up version of his old friend and even if he is still heartbroken he can't stay away from Skyler. Will they give each other a second chance and start anew? Or the past disappointments are still too painful to forget?

I really liked the main characters, and their mums, Skyler and Judson are as sweet as the maple syrup and they deserve to be happy and successful.

Stronghold kept me interested even if I felt like it was a bit rushed in the middle but I loved the ending.
