#Review: Passion Rekindled (Brooks Family Book 2) by Delaney Diamond

The Blurb
This is a short story.

As far as Sylvie Johnson is concerned, her ex-husband used her and left her and she cannot stand the sight of him. Fifteen years after their divorce, her feelings haven’t changed. She wants nothing to do with him—no matter what her beating heart suggests.

Oscar Brooks has always assumed that his ex-wife hates him, but after an unplanned kiss, he’s not so sure. Why does she always have such a hostile response to his presence? Is it love, or is it hate? He’s determined to find out.

My Review
Passion Rekindled is a second chance romance (as the title suggests) between an older couple that were married for years and then divorced for 15 years.

I liked the focus on a couple in their fifties.
Their new-found romance forces them to confront the reasons they fell apart the first time. Despite starting out as enemies, they've both matured over the years and are able to work through their conflicts in a way their hot-headed younger versions couldn't.

Although this story can be read as a standalone, I feel it was more fulfilling reading it after book 1, since the timeline overlaps at some point, and events in book 1 actually trigger the meeting between Sylvie and Oscar, which led to the unplanned kiss (see blurb).
