Death is easy.
Surviving it? That’s the hard part.
Dr. Jake Jameson knows this all too well. Losing his mother at the age of eighteen, he walks away from his small hometown and the painful memories it holds, vowing to never return again.
Twelve years later, he finds himself driving back down the coast of North Carolina. When his father leaves him a small medical practice, he has no choice but to heed the call until he can find someone else to take it off his hands.
But coming back home means facing everything he left behind, including the one woman who might make it impossible to leave again.
Molly McIntyre has spent her entire life in one town. Taking over her parents’ small inn, she’s settled into a quiet, happy life. But all of that comes to an abrupt halt when Jake shows up at her door in need of a place to stay.
Molly loathes everything about this man, but she can’t find it in her heart to refuse his request.
After over a decade, these former lovers quickly discover what once burned brightly between them has only grown in their time apart. Soon they must decide if the choices they’ve made have led them back to each other for a second chance or one final goodbye.

The Choices I’ve Made is a second chance or third chance Romance which I always enjoy because the couples are usually older but not necessarily wiser.
This is the story of Jake and Molly, childhood sweethearts who always loved each other. When Jake’s mother died, he left at 18 for college and has not been back in 12 years. Now he has come back for his father’s funeral and to sort out the small practice his father left him. It was evident that nothing had changed in regards to love between them. Except that Molly was engaged to his best friend while growing up.
This is the first book by J.L.Berg I read and it won’t be the last. It may be a romance novel, and this couple found their love each other was not always enough. This book didn’t go the same route most go so it was nice change.
I love Jake and Molly together, but I must say I was disappointed in Molly’s fear of leaving the Island. I was amazed at the change in Jake and Molly after they both admitted that love is not enough.This is a standalone with HEA even if the story went a different route.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review
