I wanted to conquer the world.

She wanted to gaze at the stars.

It’s been twelve years since I last saw Scottie Rucker. A grim prognosis has upended my life, and no amount of my hard-earned money can fix it. So, after leaving a note on the nightstand, I search for my first love
I search for life.

When I find her in Austin, working at a quaint general store and living in an RV behind it, those twelve years vanish. She’s exactly how I remember her.

Scottie thinks our reunion is a small-world coincidence, and I’m not ready to tell her the truth. After we rekindle our friendship, she convinces me to work part-time at the store while she pursues her budding relationship with Koen, a welder and the grandson of a customer.

Scottie’s ability to live in the moment is exactly what I need. But how do I convince her new boyfriend that I’m not his competition?

And what happens if my heart changes its mind?

Price + Scottie + Koen

Scottie and Price dated twelve years ago while he was in college in Philadelphia.
But they wanted different things from life. Price wanted everything and Scottie just had her little dreams. So they parted ways.
And now - the week Scottie has a blind date with Koen - a customer's grandson - Price shows up at her store. Out of the blue after 12 years!
But he doesn't want her back - he just wants to be near her.
And Scottie is really falling fast for Koen.

What will happen with those three?
Will there be a HEA???

WELL ....

Why am I always reading those heartbreaking books?
I hate love triangles and I hate sick main characters.
I don't read those books. So why am I here?
Ugh. Idiot.
I loved this. I loved all three of them and I loved the locations and the dog and the funny moments and the sad moments. But I also hated those sad moments so much!

It was a beautiful book. 'Nough said.

I need to read a super funny rom-com after this!

Wouldn't mind seeing this on TV one day soon!

I THOUGHT OF YOU was such a sweet and heartbreaking and beautiful first love and second chance and ... so much more love story. Read it!

Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor.

With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.

After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.

When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.
