The book opens with Brighton Starling literally crashing into her ex/love of her life/the one that got away Sebastian Figures. They had a years-long relationship until it all came to a halt when he lost it all.
Brighton never stopped loving Sebastian and wants to forgive him but after their abrupt ending two years prior, she finds herself short on trust but wants to let him back in. Sebastian will stop at nothing to get his Bright Star back and he shows his love in many ways.
I definitely enjoyed this one! I adored Brighton and Sebastian's banter, their easy love and fun text conversations. A few things were a bit hard for me and I'll let you know what! This book is written in third person; many people don't mind it but as someone who reads a lot, it was hard to get into for me and I feel that's why it took me longer to read this book than normal. Sebastian traded one addiction for another in his ocd-like coping. I kind of wanted that touched on more, if that makes sense? Brighton didn't really know anything about it and I felt like as part of her recovery, it should have been something she was fully aware of and understood.
I loved Sebastian's relationship with his father and friends, his support system was great. Brighton being able to lean on Declan (Sebastian's best friend) and Jade in times of need. Their friendships were easy and fun to read.
Cranford's debut novel was a fun read. I found it a bit hard to connect to the characters but I'm chalking that up to third person POV and my reading preferences. It's emotional, and fun, and I think you'll enjoy it!
I'm excited to read first forays into books and no less from someone whose blog I enjoy. I do love me a good second chance romance with the right amount of tenderness and feels. Brighton and Sebastian torn apart by things out of their hands. Earning trust back is not easy once broken. Sebastian wants a do over and to fix the wrongs. Brighton has always been his light that guided him home and this time he will make sure of it.
What I like about this book is how it tackled addiction, in specific gambling addiction. To be a real close look at it the before and after. Even gambling can be a disease and can ruin lives. It's nice to see someone out from rehab trying to find themselves and continue to fight/maintain what they learned. Sebastian and Brighton's ongoing struggle with it was not glossed over but handled well.
The winning the girl back was not easy but it was light hearted and genuine. I really thought Sebastian was atoning for it all and it was sincere . I also liked him his humor and patience, the way he knew he made mistakes and wanted to change. Persistent and consistent. Their witty banter was charming and playful made ease the sad and tears. Resentment is an funny thing that creeps up on you and it's hard to move past. Dealing with that and regaining trust it's long road ahead. With a love like theirs it's not insurmountable.
I adored this fabulous debut novel, the characters were fresh and story engaging. Second chances, forgiveness and faith things that aren't always easy to give but can be worked for. The writing style flowed well and the timing of the moments was good. The sweet and heartfelt, the little moments that made me cheer and humorous moments that brightened it. It had the fluttery feeling of first love and was a joy to read. I love new authors to follow and this one will leave you with a smile. I vote a follow up with Declan and Jade they were terrific secondary characters that made this story pop. They have a story I can tell.
Thank you so very much Give Me Books Promotions!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! :)
What a fantastic and emotional debut!! I really enjoyed this one!! I wasn't quite sure what to expect at first but i was surprised in the best way by this novel. It was gripping my heart from the very first chapter. I liked the fact that it touched on subjects that I don't really see often in books. It was so unique and refreshing. I was so happy to be inside both of the main characters minds. I just had to know both sides to their story.
Ms.Cranford is an Author to watch!! I couldn't believe that this was her first novel!! I am so looking forward to reading what she comes up with next!! :)
Brighton and Sebastian's have a whole lot of history together. Secrets ripped these two apart. Can the Truth and forgiveness be the glue that brings them back together? Or has too much time passed and the pain has become too much to come back from?
