Always Mine by T. Ashleigh

What happens when you have to face your past and atone for those mistakes? ALWAYS MINE is a small town second chance romance showing with time all wounds can be repaired. 

From the blurb:

I had it all. An amazing boyfriend, a full-ride scholarship, and so close to achieving my NFL dream. The future was headed my way, like a perfect spiral, straight down the field.
Until I fumbled the ball.
Everything I cared about was ripped away, and now my life has turned into something I no longer recognize. When I’m forced to move back home, I find myself face-to-face with the reminder of my own self-destruction.
Wyatt Clayton.
He wants nothing to do with me and I don’t blame him. I irrevocably broke us, and he made it clear there's nothing I can do to change the past. But I've lost too much to add him to the pile, and I’ll do anything it takes to get him back.
I need him. He’s my rock, my true dream, my everything.
My Wyatt.

I thought I was done feeling pain like this.
When Paxton left--turning his back on me and everything we'd shared--I shattered. It took years to put the jagged edges of myself back together, but I managed to create something whole, if not imperfect.
Then he came back, and the shaky foundation I was standing on crumbled.
Now I’m adrift, drowning in the memories, while choking on his presence. He says he wants me back in his life--but my heart won't survive another break.
I have to resist him, and my long-buried emotions, but it's starting to feel impossible. How can I stay strong when he’s the same boy I fell in love with.
My Paxton.

Molly Otto's Review:

Well, T. Ashleigh has shown us again why she does second chance romance with the best of them. Paxton & Wyatt have loved each other their whole dang lives, and when one stupid night of self-doubt tears them apart for three long years, it's no surprise it will be a rough ride to redemption. 

The side characters are what makes this small town novel a tier above others showing a meddling town will do whatever is necessary for love. The support system of these men is so full stop you hope they too get their HEA. They all deserve it as much as Paxton & Wyatt.

When giving this second chance, Paxton shows Wyatt he has grown from the scared teen to a man who will stick up for what he loves, he will fight and they can get through anything as long as they're together. It is not a quick fix. Thankfully, it takes time and perseverance to show how much the past will not repeat itself.

Always Mine is truly an amazing heartfelt read, and I can't wait to see what is brought next to us from this small town.
