This is a second chance love story that warms the cockles of your heart. Set in a small town, we meet Jason Koster and Delilah Noelle who were high school sweethearts torn apart my misunderstandings and Lies. Readers that are familiar with Jason Koster will remember him as a character in another S.L.Scott novel. That time he was a badass, this book shows you that he actually does have feelings and a heart.
Delilah Noelle is a sweet and gentle young woman who every day lives with regret and fear. Fearful of an abusive ex husband and the regret of a love lost. 3 years ago she was totally in love with her high school sweetheart and thought she would spend her life with him, how wrong could she have been. Listening to the lies of others she decided to let him go.

Delilah and Jason were a couple that were meant to be. As soon as they saw each other again, the feelings were still very much alive. Would both their pasts come back to haunt them? Will they get there happy ever after ? Or will we see Jason ride off into the sunset. Questions,questions questions. Read and seek and you will find the answers.
I have become a really big fan of S.L.Scott and her style of writing. Her stories are interesting, in depth and easy to read and enjoy. Solace is so beautifully written and i fell in love with both characters. Congratulations on a well deserved 5 stars.
I used to think she couldn’t resist me, but she had no problem earlier this week. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve when it comes to Ms. Noelle. Let’s see if she still can. “I’ll be right back.”
“What?” my mom asks, watching me get out of the car. “Where are you going? The light’s going to turn green any second.”
I keep walking.
She sees me. Even though her pretty eyes are hidden behind big sunglasses, I can figure they’re probably damn wide right now. Reaching for the truck door lock, her finger pushes it down just as I arrive. She can kid herself like that. She knows deep down that I’ll never hurt her, but I might pressure her into giving me a little of her time.
Standing on the other side of her door, I knock. Delilah finally looks up and points at the light. It’s green. I shrug. I make the lame twist of the wrist roll down your window motion with my hand because I have a feeling she might not understand if I pretend to push a button to roll it down.
“Get back in your car, Jason,” she says through the glass.
“No. Roll down your window.” To sugarcoat it, I add, “Please.”
“What do you mean why? I want to talk to you and I don’t want shout through the glass.”
Huffing, the glass slides down slowly. “What is it?” She keeps her hands on the steering wheel and her grip seems to tighten just a bit.
She glances my way, so I say, “I want to see you.”
“You’re seeing me, Jason, so if that’s all there is, I’ll be going no—”
The glass starts to roll up, but I clamp my palm over it. She releases the button and looks up at me. “I don’t know what happened the other day, what turned your mood so quickly, but I’d like another chance for us to talk this time.”
“It’s not a good idea.”
“It’s a great idea, actually. All you have to say is yes.”
My smile tilts into a smirk. “You haven’t changed much.”
“Then you haven’t been paying attention.”
