#BillionaireRomance #WidowRomance #SecondChanceRomance #SmallTownRomance
USA Today Bestselling author Claudia Burgoa presents a heartwarming, sexy romance about second chances and starting over. After a week off the grid, I finally get reception and the first voicemail I hear stuns me. “You’re summoned to Baker’s Creek by the late William Tower Alderidge.” Twelve Years. It’s been twelve years since the last time I heard from the Alderidge family. That one voicemail changes everything—I need the money the late William offers. In exchange, I have to live eighteen months in Baker’s Creek. I’ve survived cancer, the jungle, and the plague. This should be easy compared to all that, right? Or so I think until...I see him. Confident, charismatic, bitter, sexy as hell, Doctor Hayes Benjamin Aldrige. My first love, my first kiss—my late husband’s brother. He hates me. He still hasn’t forgiven me for walking out on him, and I can’t blame him. It’s been over ten years, and I still have feelings for him. But I faked it once and I can fake it twice. I can survive eighteen months and that’ll be the last time I see the Alderidge brothers. Isn’t it? The Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers series is a romantic comedy saga packed with the perfect mix of angst, tears, and laughs. If you like strong heroines & alpha males, steamy romances and witty love stories, this series is for you!

Momma Says: 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Terrific start to a promising series! Loved You Once is a great second chance romance with more chemistry than you can shake a stick at. It's also a brilliant introduction to the Alderidge brothers, and with a cast of characters like this, there's no way I'm missing out on any part of this series. Claudia Burgoa always mixes just the right amount of angst with fabulous wit and humor, but she's really outdone herself with this one. Normally, I shy away from the sibling's ex because of the ick factor - just my personal opinion of the trope, but more often than not, it doesn't work for me. This one has none of that, and it's done differently than most of the ones I've read in its shared romance trope, plus the characters are too good together not to want more of them. Blaire and Hayes are likable both together and separately, and Hayes pulls out all the stops to win Blaire back, which just endears him that much more. I'm a sucker for second chance romances anyway, and the small town angle makes it that much better. Then you add in the family dynamic between these brothers, and I was quickly fully invested in not just this couple but the whole family. Witty banter, all the feels romance, engaging characters, and a fast-paced story, this one has it all, and I can't wait for whatever comes next in this series. Claudia Burgoa has started the Baker's Creek Billionaire Brothers out with a bang, and if this first book is any indication, it's going to be a terrific ride.
