Sands of Time is a contemporary romance set in a small Upstate New York town called Heart Falls, a town where heroes are born and passion is bred. This spicy romance tests the boundaries of trust, forgiveness, strength, passion, and most of all…love.
Once again, single mom Jade Santiago is trapped under her father’s firm hand. If her existence wasn’t complicated enough, her son’s father, John Sands, has popped back into her life. John doesn’t know JT is his son, and Jade plans to keep it that way. John’s ignorance ensures his protection from her abusive, vindictive father. Especially now that John works for him. Bad-boy-turned-cop John Sands loves women, but hates relationships. At least, that was, until Jade Santiago came back to town. Now he wants things. Things like family and commitment. Not to mention hot sex. For her, he’s ready to change his priorities. If he can only get past her stubborn indifference and the chief of police, who happens to be her father and his boss, she’ll end up right where she belongs—in his arms and his bed Keeping JT’s dad a secret for all these years seemed like a good idea, but the more John proves himself a genuine friend and an honorable man, the more Jade struggles with her intense attraction and undeniable guilt. He deserves the truth. A truth that will ultimately destroy all she has worked to protect. A truth that will shatter the trust of the only man she has ever loved. A truth that will change their lives forever.

This is my first KD Friedrich book, I did not read the first in this series but I'm definitely going back for it. Each book can be read as a standalone but after you read this one your going to want to go back and start with book one.
Sands of Time is a second chance at love. Jade quit school and left home years ago, escaping a horrific home life that no one but her aunt knew about, she also carried another secret with her when she left.
John Sands was the boy she loved, he now works for her father as a police officer. He's not one to settle down, love em an leave em has been his style. But there's one girl from his past, one that made him want more but she disappeared long ago.
It's been six years and Jade is coming home, bringing JT with her she worries that John will figure out he's his father, but she's alone in the world now that her aunt is gone and her father has apologized and swears he want's a relationship with his daughter and grandson so she's walking back into the hell she ran from hoping for a better life.
A few weeks in things go back to the way they were before, Jade is scared to breathe without her father's consent and this time JT is being targeted as well. Coming face to face with John was not in her plans, especially not with his son at her feet.
John sees Jade and realizes what he's always wanted, what he's been missing, and he's on a mission to get her back. She keeps pushing him away and he doesn't know why but he's not giving up.
When John sees the truth of what's been happening to Jade he's furious, can he handle another truth? The fact that he's a father and she never told him?
I love second chance romances and this one hit all the marks. KD Friedrich tells a great story that flows, is steadily paced and well written. I've found a new to me author to love.
