From Kelly Siskind comes a slow-burn romantic comedy about one man’s creative attempt to win back his high school sweetheart after a change in fortune gives them a second chance at love.

Growing up, I had it all—my art, close friends, a gorgeous girlfriend who owned my heart—but then my life exploded.

Turns out my father was laundering money, and my whole family got shoved into witness protection. No notice. No chance to explain. I was ripped away from beautiful, blue-eyed Delilah Moon, shattering both our worlds.

A decade later, fate has given us a second chance.

The cartel my father worked for has been wiped out. I’ve returned to my hometown, determined to win back the love of my life. But Delilah is engaged.

Or . . . is she?

I’m almost positive she’s lying about her fiancĂ© to protect her heart. Which means I need to up my game.

I’ve made a list of fifty ways to prove we’re meant to be. Except Delilah’s barely looking at me, never mind swooning. I have a feeling my disappearance scarred her more than she’s admitting, and no one in town will tell me what happened . . .


I first came across Kelly Siskind's books with her Showmen series, and I've thoroughly loved the ones that I've read, so as soon as I heard about her upcoming Bower Boys series, and about 50 WAYS TO WIN BACK YOUR LOVER, I was sold! I read the adorable prequel, 5 TRICKS TO SEDUCING YOUR ENEMY (shared in her newsletter), and was eagerly waiting for E and Delilah's story! It was everything that I hoped it would be and I absolutely LOVED it!

E and Delilah were lovely characters, they were so fantastic together, and I loved getting to know them and thought that their second chance love story was so wonderful! Their history was beautiful...and also heartwrenching. I especially loved the chemistry between them--it was steamy, but also felt incredibly realistic, and their banter and inside jokes made their relationship even more lovely! I was constantly laughing, smiling, and tearing up, and I didn't want to put it down.

Storywise, I thought the premise was so interesting and couldn't wait to see how everything with witness protection and E's return to Windfall would unfold...and it was done so well! I adored the town of Windfall, and the cast of amazing side characters! I'm extremely glad that we'll get to see more of them all, and am especially curious about E's brothers...the other Bower boys...and about what's going to happen in Windfall next!

Overall, I absolutely loved 50 WAYS TO WIN BACK YOUR LOVER—it was hilarious, packed full of amazing banter, and kept me riveted! I loved the romance, the writing, and I really loved the characters! I'm so excited to see where this series goes next! I'm a sucker for small town romances, and I don't tend to gravitate towards second chance romances very often, but this was, without a doubt, one of my fave second chance romances, and I highly recommend it to contemporary romance fans, especially if you're also a fan of steamy, heartwarming, and funny stories! Extra special bonus points for their being an adorable dog in the story, too. ;)

Star Rating: ★★★★★
