Never Too Late by Micalea Smeltzer

 Book 2 in the Willow Creek series Never Too Late is out today! The story of Mathias Wade and Remy Parker, it’s time to catch up with the Willow Creek boys.


I’d never met anyone quite like Mathias Wade.

He was brooding and arrogant, but I loved him anyway.

Together we were wild and uncontained—a hurricane raging.

Then I had to leave, and words were exchanged that could never be undone.

But now I was back, and Mathias better watch out, because this bitch wasn’t finished with him.

Game. Set. Match.

All is fair in love and war, right?

Mathias Wade, the lead singer of Willow Creek, is used to getting everything he wants. Except for Remy Parker—the one that got away. Childhood friends that grew into more, Remy was the one constant in his life until she moved away. In anger, he lashed out and broke the only girl he ever loved. With temptation around every corner Mathias drowns his sorrow in women and alcohol. When the band returns to their hometown for the holidays the last thing Mathias expects is to run into Remy—but she’s back, and she’s not done with him.

Remy never forgot Mathias or the pain he caused her. When she moves back to the place she grew up to take care of her ailing grandma her heart is set on revenge. She’s determined to make Mathias fall in love with her all over again—only this time she’s going to break his heart.

But Mathias never stopped loving Remy—and she soon discovers that her feelings haven’t disappeared either.

Can two people too stubborn for their own good overcome their own demons and find the love they always deserved?


Remy and Mathias were childhood sweethearts – well their own kind of sweethearts anyway. When Remy had to move away, devastating lies were told which broke them completely. Now years later Remy is back to take care of her Grandma whose as feisty and mischievous as her. Knowing that Mathias and the band are back in town she’s aware they will undoubtedly see each other at some point – the longer she can put that off though the better.

Remy starts to build her life again and gets herself a job. But she isn’t prepared for her first look at Mathias again. Together they are a force of nature; they are fire and passion…but beneath it all there are still the lies.

Remy can’t forget the way they parted all those years ago and Mathias is still in the dark about Remy’s life when she left. Can they overcome the past and all the lies to be stronger together? Will they get their HEA after everything that’s passed?

I love this series! The first book was brilliant, I loved Maddox and Emma but couldn’t wait to read about what happened to Mathias with this mysterious Remy from all those years ago. Their relationship is passionate and fiery as hell, which I couldn’t get enough of! These Willow Creek boys are truly something special! Can’t wait to read more!

I jumped up on the counter and he moved to stand in front of me, bracing his hands beside my hips. I kicked my legs against the cabinets like a little kid as he stared down at me intensely.

I wasn’t sure what he was looking for in my eyes, but he must have found it, because he cupped my cheek and leaned in.

“This feels like when we were younger,” he whispered. “Like no time at all has passed.” His words echoed my previous thoughts.

I closed my eyes, feeling his breath fan across my lips.

God, I’d missed him.

It didn’t seem possible to miss someone I’d grown to hate, but I did.

I was pretty sure that when someone like Mathias came into your life they were impossible to forget.

He was like the sun, burning so bright that even once he was gone I was still blinded.

“Did you ever miss me?” I asked.

“Even once?” I held my breath, waiting for him to explode—because that was

Mathias. He could be nice one minute and an asshole the next. I wouldn’t put it

past him to kick me out for my question.

Instead he surprised me by leaning in impossibly

closer and nuzzling my neck. “Always.”
