Joy and Dawson made it through high school together and had huge plans to quit town and start their lives together somewhere else but what they want and what they get is two completely different things.
I liked the fact that they both got the opportunity to express themselves in this story, that eth authors gave them both a voice and let them tell their story in their own words, I find that it is the most comfortable way of reading story like this that is multi-facetted.
Life gets in their way and not only scuppers their plans but drive a wedge between the two of them and in they end they have no dreams to move forward with because they are not together anymore.
Now I was a little confused about some of the events that unfolded and about the fact that Dawson was so determined to keep his distance from Joy, no matter the fact that he had contact with family and friends.
I didn’t take to Donnie, although I am not sure why.
Joining Maverick Defence, may have been the smart move for Dawson but it wasn’t doing anything to bring him any closer to Joy, he is constant taking on tasks that put paid to any chance they may have had of getting what they had back.
There were so any secrets that I was at a loss as to how their journey was ever going to turn around.
I got the feeling that Joy was almost drowning with the enormity of the situation with her and Dawson but rather that remedy what is going on, mind you how can you address something when the man you need to talk to is never around?
And rather than completely retreat into her shell, she is wallows her way from day to day, struggling to find anything that can lift her despair, even her half-hearted relationship (of sorts) with Dawson’s best friend Donnie. I really wanted to give her a good hard shake, I really struggle with weak willed women and I thought she was selling herself short!
So what happens when Dawson finally gets his backside back into town, will they be able to handle being in the same town?
Will they be able to talk their issues through?
Can they see past the hurt and mistrust to put their friendship back on track and what about Donnie?
I had so many questions and I know I am leaving you with so many of them still unanswered but where would be the fun in me telling you what happens!
Overall I would say I liked the story but I think I liked the secondary characters more than the primary ones, not that I hated either Joy or Dawson but more that I loved Mikey, Sherri. Lex and of course Ari.
The book was well written and engaging, I definitely wanted to keep turning the pages but I am left waiting for the next book to discover whether the hopes that I have accumulated in my head for the characters will actually come to fruition.
This book is about second chances at love.
We meet the main characters Joy Matthews and Dawson Spencer.
Joy and Dawson were the perfect high school sweethearts and have their whole life's mapped out together. But life has a habit of a being unkind as something happens that leads to the sweethearts separating and both their life's changing.
Dawson has no interest in returning to the town of Chancing but he has to return for his mum's funeral.
Dawson assumes that Joy has moved on and move away Chancing to fulfill her dreams. He soon gets the shock of his life when he walks past the towns local diner and see's Joy working in there just like she did when she was 16 years old. All the feelings he had for Joy come flooding back as do Joy's. Dawson quickly realises that Joy make look like Joy on the outside but she not the same girl that he left behind.
When Dawson went away Jot was left with his best friend Donnie. Donnie has a dark side that comes out now and again and when he is he's not a very nice man to be around. Joy ends up trapped in a dark world with Donnie where alot of drink and drugs are heavily involved. Joy feels trapped as both her and Donnie know that she has no way of leaving him.
After seeing his one true love that he's left her behind before and he's not willing to do it again for the second time. He's prepared to do whatever it takes to get Joy back and the love that's never gone between the two of them.
**Received this book as a ARC in return for my honest opinion * *
I have read Chastity Falls series of L.A. Cotton's before and she drew me into each and every book in the series. I have not read any books from Jenny Siegel. So I was really curious to how these two author would write together.
This book is about second chance romance between Dawson Spencer and Joy Mathers. A incident happened in their past that pulls them apart. Dawson is sent to prison and he thinks that Joy went to college. Little does he knows that Joy got stuck in her hometown, Chancing when she didn’t get a full scholarship to college. Now she is dating Dawson best friend Donnie. Who is slowly pulling her into drinking and doing drugs.
Dawson is back for his mom's funeral and to see his brother Mikey. When Dawson and Lex (his ex-cell mate) stop at the diner. He is shocked to see the only girl he has ever loved, Joy still working there since she was supposed to be in college. This was not the Joy he left behind but a empty, tortured and hard-fought version of herself. After talking with his brother he realizes that not all is right with their lives and the town of Chancing. He decides after leaving her once, he will not leave her again. Dawson just needs to get rid of his biggest obstacle,Donnie, before he can claim Joy as his once again!
Let me tell you that as soon as I finished reading Deliverance. I was ready to read the next book in this series. Now I am patiently waiting for it to come out. I'm hoping it will fill in a lot of details about Maverick Defense & Lex.
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for a honest review. Review by Melissa K for HEA Fanatics.
