When Jenna Gaines was five she was separated from her two siblings as each was placed in different foster homes. Her life goal has been to be reunited with her twin sister Lena and their older brother by one year Lincoln. Meanwhile over the two decades and a half, she worked hard to obtain her Ph.D., succeeded on Wall St in a job she hated, and now at thirty one is returning to Detroit to teach economics at the University of Detroit-Mercy. Jenna also plans to hire a private investigator to locate her siblings.

Her former fiancé Scott Hendricks is back in Detroit seeking a degree after a career with the NBA. He is going to attend the U D at Mercy. The pair meets up and realize though they went their separate ways, they remain in love with one another. Neither are quite comfortable with the idea, but he is there for her as her detective Mr. Collagen believes he found Linc in Cleveland, which renews her hopes for reconnecting with her sister too though her images remain in the distant past.

This is a fun second chance in two ways as the siblings reunite though not quite as Jenna expected and the former lovers also reunite though not quite what either expected. Although a rather straightforward no dunks tale, fans will enjoy Bette Ford’s solid contemporary romance as a woman seeking her family and a former NBA star (see Can’t Say No for Ms. Ford’s previously retired professional basketball player) finding love for the second time with each other.
