Hagen Wylie has it all figured out. He’s going to live in his hometown, be everybody’s friend, explore new relationships, and rebuild his life after the horrors of war. No muss, no fuss is the plan. He’s well on his way—until he finds out his first love has come home too. Hagen says it’s no big deal, but a chance encounter with Mitch Thayer’s two cute sons puts him directly in the path of the only guy he’s never gotten out of his head.

Mitch returned for three reasons: to raise his sons where he grew up, to move his furniture business and encourage it to thrive, and to win Hagen back. Years away made it perfectly clear the young man he loved in high school is the only one for him. The problem? He left town and they have not talked since.

If Hagen’s going to trust him again, Mitch needs to show him how he’s grown up and isn’t going to let go. They could have a new chance at love… but Hagen is insistent he’s not reviving a relationship with Mitch. Then again, you never know.

You Never Know by Mary Calmes is a beautifully written love story about best friends, growing up, and a love that never died.
Hagen he lives in his old home town. He is everyone’s friend. He was in the military and saw war.  He has some PSTD due to that. He has changed some fundamental things about himself because of this. Right now he is trying to just find himself. He is not looking for love.
Mitch he has 2 young sons. They are adorable little boys!! Loved meeting them. he has a furniture business.  He used to date Hagen and he has come to rectify the biggest mistake of his life, leaving Hagen.  Only thing is Hagen is not ready to forgive and forget the reasons why Mitch left him to begin with.
Hagen really needs Mitch. He needs the trust he has with Mitch despite all of the hurt in this life. 
These two have a very intense love story. I could not stop re reading this particular story. There is emotional angst, love, and lots of adorable moments that made me smile.
I highly recommend this story to anyone who is a true romantic at heart. This book is one for my keeper shelf.
