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.
I want to be Brighton's bff. I want to meet her at my local Panera and have her introduce me to Jade. These ladies are real. The conversations, the interactions, it all felt so natural.
As did the romance. From distrust to chemistry, everything felt almost tangible. That deep knowledge of someone that only comes with such a passionate, long-term relationship, tempered with the time apart and the distance that created. They come together with the hesitance of first time lovers, yet with all the passion and intimacy of old lovers. Magic.
Nothing felt to angsty, yet nothing was easily earned either. The plot didn't drag on, yet there was no instant magical resolution. It felt worked for, earned, and honest.
I loved every minute of the time spent reading (and let's be honest, re-reading it) because it was more than time well spent. I could crawl into those pages with Bright and Seb and stay forever.
Now if we can just get some more low down on Jade and Declan...

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?
If you haven't already One-Clicked, What are you waiting for exactly?!?! Check out this awesome debut Today!! You do NOT want to miss out on this one!! Also, the story will definitely take your breath away as much as the cover does, believe me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did my fellow book lovers!! 4.5 Stars all around!! :)
I couldn't put this book down. I was drawn in, rooting for these two. The narrative flowed so eloquently. I laughed at their banter, cheered for them and wished them the best when it hit THE END.
B.Cranford, I don't know what you have going on in your head but I sure hope those voices are still speaking.
