Chapter 39 had my heart melting with Ryder’s on-air confession. Lovely, sexy, funny and utterly romantic story of two lonely cynics falling irrevocably for each other.
You don’t expect me to leave Cole’s story alone, do you? Having gotten a resolution to Carter’s future with Emma, of course it’s time to give Cole a happy ending.
Of course more secrets were revealed … a different puzzle piece to the whole mystery of how the feud started. Held me enthralled till the very last page!
I simply had to read this after having read Carter Reed in the anthology. Every bit as gripping as the first book, this sequel explained so much and revealed more secrets and layers behind Carter’s actions.
What I like about this is the glimpse into Cole’s character and an idea of the impact he has on Carter and Emma. Liked the way the author resolve the couple’s future.
Ms Harlow and her emotional romances found a place on virtual bookshelf ever since I first read If You Were Mine. Although the plot and narrative are always centered around the lovers, their families, friends and other recurring secondary characters often play pivotal roles in assisting them to a happy ending.
If it takes a proverbial village to raise a child, then it’ll definitely take a small town to bring together a couple in love. This book is linked to After We Fall and I couldn’t have asked for a more well written second chance romance and ending for the protagonists. Another satisfying read which brightened the week for me.
This awesome story of a woman’s journey to self actualization and a happy-ever-after was made all the more entertaining by light humour, relatable characters and emotional scenes.
There were shades of the author’s real life and the heroine’s book blogger to published author success story that was quite inspiring. The only thing that stopped me for giving this a 5-star was the slightly lame misunderstand towards the last portion of the book, especially the second guessing and self doubting.
Overall, a well-written feel-good romance with sound plot development and enough twists and drama to keep me well occupied over a slow week.
A very sensitively written story of a heartbreaking and somewhat taboo topic, with young love, self discovery, budding friendships, standing up to bullies and dealing with grief underpinning the poignant healing of a family torn apart by tragedy.
Not what I expected, but which made me love it all the more.
