My Thoughts - Love Again Author: Ann Marie Bryan

About the Book

Book: Love Again

Author: Ann Marie Bryan

Genre: Christian fiction (Romance)

Release date: December 8, 2022

Sometimes, all you need is a second chance at love.

Let the adventure begin …

Rylan McIntosh was twenty-three years old when Savannah McKenzie shattered his world. Everything was almost perfect … until she disappeared. Nearly seven years later, Savannah stands before him with not a hint of remorse. The naive young girl is gone and the woman in her place is at the top of her game. She’s all glam in a tailored suit, acting like they were nothing more than mere acquaintances. But she’s forgotten something—how relentless he can be.

Having experienced more than her fair share of tragedy, the last thing Savannah wants is to contend with Rylan. Back then, she’d surrendered to her feelings for him and conceded to his request for a relationship … well, until she was forced to flee. Seeing Rylan again stirs up buried memories she has no intention of reviving.

All bets are off as they battle through the hurt and pain of their shared past. Savannah begs for a truce and, surprisingly, Rylan agrees. That’s until he discovers a web of secrets and lies that run deeper than he could have ever imagined. Still, some connections are too powerful to ignore. Will Rylan and Savannah develop the courage to leave the past behind? Will they allow God to restore what has been broken?

More from Ann Marie

I am thankful that you are a part of this amazing Love Again tour. It was a pleasure to write Love Again, the highly anticipated second installment in the McIntosh Brothers Series. Intensely emotional yet beautifully romantic, Love Again is a deeply moving story about faith, courage, a second chance at love… and what it really means to be a family.


In this novel, you’ll witnessed the growing relationship between Rylan McIntosh and Savannah McKenzie as they deal with the pain of the past and develop the courage to leave it all behind. While romance and drama are happening in this novel, the central message is to stay the course as you pursue your purpose.


I pray Love Again strengthens your faith in the Lord, and that you will be “… confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6 (NKJV). God has a way of moving through time to ensure that all things work for our good. Whatever season you’re in, may God continue to bless and keep you.


Thank you for touring with me and for taking the time to read Love Again. Stay victorious.

My Thoughts

Love Again is book two in the McIntosh Brother series. The series is written by Ann Marie Bryan. I have read the first book in the series, but they can be read as stand alone stories. The book has some great lessons in forgiveness and understanding. 

Savannah McKenzie has not seen Rylan McIntosh in over seven years. She broke his heart when she left abruptly with no explanation. She is trying to act like nothing happened between the two of them, but Rylan will continue to pursue. She has shoved those feelings for Rylan so far down that she does not want to see them arise again. 

The book is well written with a second chance at love theme. The characters are realistic. There were a few parts of their journey that made me a bit uncomfortable - but I was able to pray and continue to read. By this I mean that there were some scenes that were more lustful in my opinion. Thank you to the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
