Old flames burn bright. When a disgraced starlet returns home to lick her wounds, she discovers that her high school sweetheart is just as tempting as ever.
Allison: When I left for California, I gave myself a new name and never looked back. Now my carefully crafted good-girl image is getting torn to shreds in the press thanks to my Oscar-winning A-hole of an ex-boyfriend. So I escape to the only safe haven I know and trust—my hometown—to take a breather while I plot my triumphant Hollywood comeback. However, when I arrive at my parents’ house, Jackson Burke answers the door instead. And suddenly the past comes rushing back . . .
Jackson: First kiss. First time. First love. Yep, Allison Murphy and I shared a lot of firsts back in the day. When she left, she took half my heart with her. Now she’s back in town, and even though I swore I’d keep my distance, her parents hired me to remodel their house, and I’m going to finish the job. But one hot kiss later, suddenly the press is calling us the next big celebrity couple. Sure, I’ll play the part, for Allison’s sake—but I refuse to let her close enough to break my heart all over again . . .
A former job-hopper, Jessica Lemmon resides in Ohio with her husband and rescue dog. She holds a degree in graphic design currently gathering dust in an impressive frame. When she’s not writing about super-sexy heroes, she can be found cooking, drawing, drinking coffee (okay, wine), and eating potato chips. She firmly believes God gifts us with talents for a purpose, and with His help, you can create the life you want.

Second chance stories are one of my favorite to read at the moment. So when I had the chance to read America’s Sweetheart by Jessica Lemon, I jumped at the chance. Allison left her hometown ten years ago and made it big in Hollywood. But a scandal sends her back home for a brief escape, but running into her first love was not part of the plan.
Jackson was left heartbroken when Alison left, but he moved on. Now she is back and old feelings are resurfacing. He is determined to keep his heart secure from her this time around, especially since he knows she will leave again. But when it comes to matters of the heart, it does as it pleases!
I loved Jackson. He was sweet, honest and caring. I did not always like Alison, however, as the story went on, we saw how much he truly meant to her. America’s Sweetheart by Jessica Lemon was a sweet and charming second chance romance and through part of series, it can be read as a standalone.
