New Release Review: I Wish I Knew Then by Jessica Peterson

I Wish I Knew Then by Jessica Peterson is now live!

My grandmother has a saying: what’s done in the dark always comes to light, especially in small towns with big secrets. And I was hiding the biggest secret of them all.

Every summer I spent growing up at my grandparents’ coastal estate was the same. Same cousins. Same chaos. Same long golf cart rides along the beach.

But everything changed the summer I turned eighteen, when my grandparents’ new housekeeper moved in with her son, Riley. With his big personality and head-turning looks, he was the local heartthrob.

We fell in love instantly. Riley was my first everything. First love. First time.

And my first heartbreak when he dumped me at the end of the summer.

Ten years later, I’m back on the island for my best friend’s wedding as her maid of honor. Who’s the first person I literally stumble into?

Riley Dixon. Even worse? He’s the groom’s best man, and a self-made billionaire to boot.

Being forced to spend an entire week together for wedding festivities quickly leads to more: hot hate sex, late nights of sneaking out, and unexpected revelations. The boy I knew a decade ago is gone, and the hate becomes…something else entirely. And I begin to wonder if Riley is hiding some secrets of his own.

I WISH I KNEW THEN is a small town, standalone romance. It is the first book in the Harbour Village Series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yay for a new series from Jessica Peterson! From the get-go I loved Riley and Lu together and their small-town second chance romance was FANTASTIC! Riley is pretty darn dreamy and I adored Lu's spunkiness and they were just so darn good together. The steam, the swoon, it was just perfection. All of the secondary characters were great, especially Lu's Aunt Lady who was a hoot and I so hope that Riley's friends will get their stories told in future books in the series.
