When the third book in this loosely connected trilogy gets moving, there is no stopping the roller coaster of emotion, sexual tension and belly laughs. O’Keefe excels in creating flawed characters who readers will root for on every page. Despite very serious subjects and tear-worthy emotion, the tone of the novel is a perfect balance of fun and heart.

Dallas TV morning show host Madelyn Cornish is not the girl who grew up in Pittsburgh and married her childhood sweetheart, hockey bad boy Billy Wilkins. Since their divorce, she’s changed her name and her future. No one knows about her past with Billy, and when he becomes the subject of a makeover show, her boss is convinced it will be a hit. Billy only agrees to the program to be close to Maddy, with hopes of winning her back. Then a betrayal that involves Billy’s troubled family threatens to ruin his career and his budding closeness with Maddy. Figuring out how to move beyond their shared past makes them realize they’ve changed, even if their love has not. (BALLANTINE, Feb., 368 pp., $7.99)
