This is the emotional story of Paul Bentley, a detective who has let his marriage fall to pieces as a consequence of his job. Paul has tried to shield his wife from the ugliness of his working in the Vice unit. He has closed himself off from her emotionally. When she files for a legal separation he finally gets the kick in the butt he needs to face his mistakes and try to repair the damage before it is too late.

Kayla Bentley has been holding on to her marriage, though she sees Paul becoming more and more closed off from her every day. Working as a Drug Counselor pits her on the opposite side of the fence from Paul as she defends her clients need for therapy instead of jail time. Though this has caused a few arguments over time, it is no reason for Paul to become so remote. When she finally makes the heartbreaking decision to file for separation, it has unexpected consequences.

An emotional and heartwarming novella from Jenna Allen, ON AGAIN is short but very straightforward. Focusing on the things that are most important to a marriage, Paul and Kayla’s story has some valuable lessons. The chemistry between the couple is poignant; it is romantic as well as sultry. Though short in pages, ON AGAIN is a story that was thoroughly satisfying nonetheless.
