REVIEW:  THIS TIME FOR KEEPS by Rochelle Alers is the 6th installment in her popular Wickham Falls Wedding Series. This book brings to life the love story of Nicole Campos and Fletcher Austen. THIS TIME FOR KEEPS begins when Nicole comes back to Wickham Falls to take custody of her twin nephews when her car breaks down in town. Nicole is an attorney and had to leave her firm when she found out that her brother needed her. Before becoming an attorney, Nicole was in the Army. Austen was in the Army as Special Forces and now he’s a mechanic with his own shop. Austen comes to Nicole’s rescue when her car breaks down.

Austen is glad that Nicole is back in Wickham Falls because he wants her forgiveness for how he treated her and their friendship in high school. Nicole and Austen have a past, and Austen wants to apologize and make amends to her because he didn’t have the courage to tell Nicole all those years ago. Nicole knows that she is only going to be in town for a short while because her brother is away getting treatment for substance abuse and she doesn’t want to relive the past with Austen. When the pair sees each, the chemistry is still there between the pair.

THIS TIME FOR KEEPS. I was hooked from the first chapter and, I couldn’t put my kindle down! The book has everything that I love to read as an avid romance reader. It has a great storyline, romance, some love scenes, and some conflict. Ms. Alers is one of my favorite authors, so I was so happy to read this book.
