Second Chance at First Love by Zoe Allison - Book Blitz

Second Chance at First Love

Eva Mathers is a successful woman, except for when it comes to matters of the heart. When she returns home to Yorkshire as a pending divorcee, she realises her childhood friend and first love Damon Evans is also newly single. It’s a pity he’s never noticed her romantically and had no idea that she was in love with him at school. But at least they can support each other as friends again.

Damon is attempting to adjust to life sharing the kids with his ex. His reconnection with Eva is strong, but she was always too good for him and made her indifference clear after they drifted apart during their younger years. In any case, she still seems to be hung up on her charismatic ex-husband. Eva is hiding things from Damon, secrets from her past. He wants to be there for her, so why can’t she let him in?

Eva is dealing with trauma, but she won’t confide in her loved ones. Can Damon help her break down her walls before it’s too late and they miss their second chance at first love?

Intro: Eva has just arrived home to her parents’ house in Yorkshire after the trauma of her divorce from her cheating Scottish ex-husband, Callum.

Meena entered the room carrying a tray containing yet more tea. She cleared her throat loudly as she placed it on the coffee table. “Matthew, that was Lily on the phone. She says Damon and Sarah are definitely splitting up.”

Eva was only half listening as she studied the messages on her cell phone. Her friends back in Scotland were texting to ask if she’d gotten there safely, and her best friend here in Oakcastle had contacted her to suggest meeting up. She glanced at Meena. Funny, I didn’t hear the landline ring. Her mum’s best friend Lily always called the house phone, rather than Meena’s mobile.

Matthew raised his eyebrows. “Oh yes? She just called, did she?”

Eva gave them her full attention. Her dad used that tone when mum was up to something.

Meena nodded. “She was on the phone a moment ago.” She sat in an armchair and gazed at the ceiling. “It’s such a shame, isn’t it?” She let out a loud sigh. “We were hoping they’d manage to work out their problems for the sake of the children. But Sarah said it had to end, that they seemed more like brother and sister than a couple. Poor Damon is heartbroken.”

“Damon?” said Eva, finally realizing who they were talking about. Her mum’s best friend’s son was someone she hadn’t thought about in a while. They’d been in the same year at school and Damon had been Eva’s first love. Though it was a shame that she hadn’t been his—and that he hadn’t noticed her at all.

Author Bio –

Zoe lives in Scotland with her husband and two children. A medic by day, she

started writing in her spare time as a means to counter burn out and found that this was a

balm for the soul.


She is a fan of the romantic genre and its ‘happy ever after’ ethos. A sharp contrast to what she can, at times, see in her day job. Zoe is keen for the female lead in romantic fiction to disabuse stereotypes and walk on an equal footing with her male counterparts. She prefers male leads

who do not display signs of toxic masculinity and believes that positive masculinity is

much more attractive to women and healthier for men.
