My knees grow weak for second chance romance so it wasn’t really a surprise that this caught my eye. This was my first J. Sterling book and now I’m actually excited to read more from her.
This book made me smiling like a fool while reading because it was a really good second chance romance story. Both were mature enough to talk about everything that happened to them in the past. What went wrong, why they gave up on each other, and what happens now that they finally laid every misunderstandings in the open. There were no dilly-dallying and beating around the bush of what they want now. They were given a second chance and therefore was jumping up immediately on the chance of being together again.
The predictability of the story, and the underlying conflict of the characters, didn’t hinder the beauty of the story. Instead of expecting a complex twist, you’ll look forward more to the stability of the story and how feel-good it was. It seemed like a story anyone could like because of its simplicity.
I especially liked the 10 years later version of Dalton. He’s character was obviously different from who he was 10 years ago, and gone was the teenager who walked away and avoided talk. He was very lovable and really dreamy. It makes me wonder if guys like Dalton exists in real life because if he does I will find him and kidnap him into marrying me.
Cammie was a good representation of THE girl. She showed that although a girl matures into a woman, the girl she was before will always be inside her no matter what. But she wasn’t whiny or irritating, she was just being a girl(if you know what I mean). It may not be a good excuse to being a little dramatic, but in reality women really does tend to act like a girl when actually all she needs is a little nudge from someone who knows better.
I would’ve liked this more if there was a bit more about the main character’s bestfriends. I know that this story is about Dalton and Cammie, but we know that a good secondary couple wouldn’t hurt right? I was thinking how awesome it would be if they found out that their bestfriends were ex-lovers too. Isn’t that a good story for a potential second book?
For clarification, I’m giving this a 3.5 rating. I did like this book, it just feels so short for me and there were parts that I feel happened too fast. Yeah maybe the 10 years apart could justify what happened so I’ll let some of it go, but for me I would have preferred if there was more, especially with the minor characters.
Any good second chance romance recommendation?
