Review: Kismet by Carly Phillips (e-book)

First line:  On a mission, Elisabetta Gardelli walked into Consign or Design, a small shop off Main Street in downtown Serendipity known for high-end outfits bought on consignment and unique items crafted by the owner, April Mancini.

Synopsis from GoodReads: Elisabetta Gardelli thought she'd spend her days serving coffee and writing obits for the town paper. But then an unexpected opportunity results in her dream job as a real journalist for the News Journal. Now, divorced and determined to make it on her own, Lissa is assigned to write a series of interviews about entrepreneurs who’ve made their mark at an impressively young age. First up? Wall Street mogul Trevor Dane - Lissa's first love. Lissa hasn't seen Trevor since he left the small town of Serendipity to earn his spot on the right side of the tracks. Ten years have passed but neither has really moved from their super-passionate teenage affair - or the heartbreak that followed. This reunion can be their second chance or it can provide much needed closure. It all depends on Trevor. Can he forgive Lissa or will the past continue to stand in their way?

My Thoughts: This novella is part of Carly Phillips' newest series, Serendipity. It is a story about second-chance love and even though it is a story story, it is still filled with the steaminess that I have come to love and expect when reading Carly Phillips.

Finally making a name for herself as a journalist, Elisabetta starts a new series about entrepreneurs who have made it to the top at a young age. The one thing she wasn't expecting was to have to interview her very first love Trevor Dane. Elisabetta and Trevor were an item in high school and then fate stepped in the way and things ended. Neither has seen or heard from the other since then and when they are face-to-face again for that first time, sparks fly. Will they be able to get past what happened in high school and find a way to be together now? 

Carly Phillips gives us an emotional story about love, heartbreak and forgiveness and despite the fact that the story was a short one, it is still easy to get wrapped up in the characters. This was a fun, short visit to Serendipity and I cannot wait to visit again with the next book in the series, Destiny.
