Hey y’all…it’s been a super busy week, sorry for the late post! Today’s FRIDAY FAVES is all about Reunion Romance. Now, when I planned this month’s faves, I thought it’d be cool to highlight stories about class reunions. You know, seeing your old high school boyfriend in a class reunion setting and falling in love again ten years later or something?? BUT, when I went back through the books I’ve read, I really could only find ONE!! Aye yi yi!! So, I kinda cheated and am going to use books that are more like second chance romance but maybe the MC had began their relationship in high school. Enjoy!

Rock Star (Bad Boy Homecoming Book 5) by Stacey Kennedy
A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new erotic romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy.

The love of her life, Travis Walker, has returned to Catfish Creek, and the now-famous rock star wants only three things: Her. Naked. And screaming his name.
Fresh off his last world tour, Travis has returned to town to get a dose of reality. With fame casting a superficial cloud over Travis’s life, he’s scrambling to stay afloat. He needs an anchor, and Rae is that for him. But as he finds himself, he’s determined to remind Rae of the heat that once burned between them.
Before they know it, their one hot night is three, and soon, just like ten years ago, Travis holds the strings to Rae’s heart. But Rae’s not that young girl who watched her high school sweetheart race off to become famous. She’s a woman who knows what she wants and realizes when a man needs her. She just has to decide if she should put the past on repeat, or walk away from it forever.

Second Chance Charmer by Brighton Walsh
He was the resident bad boy. She’s small town royalty. Their love was doomed from the start.
Finn spent his childhood living so far on the wrong side of the tracks, he couldn’t even see them through his trailer window. When he moves back to his small, southern hometown to open the first bar in a formerly dry county, he’s no longer the boy who left—he’s a man with something to prove. As long as he doesn’t allow himself to get sidetracked by the only girl he’s ever loved.
Willow learned a long time ago to protect her heart at all costs, so her walls are firmly in place when her ex comes strolling back into town, all cockiness and charm. When they’re thrown together on the job, she knows better than to give in to the tug of attraction that still simmers between them. She might be drawn to him, but she certainly doesn’t trust him. It’s time for her to prove she’s not the brokenhearted girl he left behind.
There’s no room for second chances in Havenbrook. And Willow’s daddy—the mayor—will do anything to keep it that way.
