Alone With You: The Walker Brothers Book 2 by Amanda Adams

Date of Publication: May 5, 2017


Claire Miller fell in love with Jake in the third grade. One hot night of reckless passion changed things between them forever. Jake rocked her world, but Claire had plans for her life. Knowing she could never be what he needed, she let him go and has missed him every day since.

Jake Walker knew the first time he saw Claire, when he was nine years old, that he wanted to marry her. At seventeen, he let her go. But seven years later, the sight of her hit him like a punch to the gut. Every cell in his body demanded that she was ‘The One'. But can he convince Claire?

My Thoughts…

This is the 2nd book in The Walker Brothers series by Amanda Adams.     Claire and Jake have been best friends and in love since third grade.    The Claire leaves town to live her dreams and leaves Jake behind.   Jake stays in town and works the ranch as his father did before him.   He knows that this is his destiny.  Yet, Claire and Jake are destine to be together also. 

I guess at 17 you know what you want but you don’t always know how to get it.   That is the problem for Claire and Jake.    They know they want each other but they also know their dreams don’t jive with what the other wants.       My thought is if it is meant to be it will be…sometimes you just need a gentle push (or full on shove) to get back to each other.     

The small town setting is wonderful.   I could picture the ranch, the gravel roads, and the quaint shops.   It is a town that every teenager can’t wait to leave, except Jake, but loves to return to.    It is a town that everyone knows everyone and there are no secrets.    It is an amazing setting that never fails to pull me in.  

The secondary characters, specifically the Walker Brothers, are so sexy, fun, supportive, and wonderful.   The relationships between the brothers is one of true family.    They fight, argue, love, support, and push each other out of their comfort zones.   It is true family love.

About Amanda Adams

Amanda Adams fell in love with books at a very early age. Her earliest memories are of sitting on her mother's lap reading Cinderella and Snow White and Rose Red over, and over, and over again until she had them memorized –- she was too young to know the alphabet.
Amanda started writing stories in big, sloppy handwriting in a wide-rule notebook when she was bored, during class (of course) in the fifth grade. Her favorite stories always include excitement, adventure and a handsome hero guaranteed to sweep her off her feet.
Amanda lives in beautiful Colorado with her husband (her high-school sweetheart who proved the reality of "love at first sight") and three teenagers whom she reminds, repeatedly… "If it's not in my phone, it's not happening," because her mind is oh-so-often far away living a fairy tale. (That's code for – if an alarm doesn't go off, she forgets to pick up her kids from school…)
