When two people who live their lives in the smallest way possible meet cute, you’d think they would avoid eye contact and go their separate ways. But we’re talking about Sean Kinney here. Sean Kinney with two brothers who have what Sean wants. Love, and lives fully lived. So, Sean takes a big scary leap with the lovely Lindsey. But Lindsey may be even more scared of living than Sean is.
Seeing Lindsey and Sean tentatively tiptoe into love was the sweetest thing I’d ever read. If you like your Heroes sweet, sexy, sensitive, and poetic, you will adore Sean Kinney!
Lindsey also lived in fear. She discovered her long time boyfriend cheating and finally decided to take a risk... She meets Sean after ordering a rather expensive mattress using her ex-boyfriends credit card.... she "disposed" of the old bed they shared after discovering she wasn't the only one sleeping with him in it. She and Sean are two people afraid to live until they meet each other. Lindsey asks Sean what he's afraid of, and it's ice cream! (lactose intolerance you know) so she challenges him to trust her and have some ice cream. What follows is a week of "what if today was your last day" challenges.
Sean falls hard for Lindsey, but she has fears of her own and whether or not she can finally let go of those and live will be up to her.
Sean and Lindsey were a great couple, even though they fell quickly it was sweet and full of challenges and firsts. The story here is about living to your fullest, however that looks! Don't be afraid, because being afraid prevents you from living your best life.
Bonus here, you got to see Ryan and Snow and Patrick and Kinsey settling in to their lives too.
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this to review, but I made sure to buy a copy because author's work hard and deserve to have their books read!
“As long as you’re alive, you can be whatever the hell you want to be, Sean Kinney. Nobody is stopping you, except you.”
Kelsey Kingsley’s third Kinney brother book may just be my favorite yet. Sean is the timid and “good” brother out of the three. His family and his own fears keep him on the straight and narrow yet have stunted his existence. The man is afraid of ice cream, for goodness sake. Yet he has a yearning for the love that both of his brothers have found in the previous books while carrying the weight of his family’s expectations. This paralyzes Sean, and he seems to be unable to move beyond it.
Enter Lindsey. She encounters Sean when she attempts to purchase a replacement mattress for the one she burned after finding it occupied by her man and someone else. Alone in the north and away from her wealthy southern family, Lindsey is a mirror for much of Sean’s fear. She has her own baggage (or full set of luggage, in this case), and she jumps at the chance to get Sean to really live for the first time.
Add in two nosey brothers, a hilarious best friend, and all the other characters I love from Kingsley’s lovely Connecticut community, and you have a richly populated story of stepping outside your boundaries to find your own truth.
Sean’s vulnerability and male sensitivity may be interpreted as weakness, but you’d be so wrong. It’s these things and his open heart that make Sean the bravest Kinney of the bunch. Lindsey frustrated me sometimes, as I found her almost manipulative of Sean, but that’s part of her journey as well. There is a twist in the book, and I was so happy to see this fledgling author not take the obvious path. There is, of course, the requisite blossoming romance (which is hot) and happy ending, and I couldn’t be any happier for these characters.
One of my favorite aspects of Kingsley’s writing is that she refuses to vilify the exes in her books. Yes, they are flawed, as are the heroes and heroines. It lends such realness to them, and it shows a mature understanding of relationships and human nature. We get a glimpse into Sean’s brother’s ex-wife in this book, and it is as awkward as I’d imagine it would be in real life. The same goes with Lindsey’s ex. I just find it refreshing and honest to read about adults choosing to behave as such, and owning their part in things.
If I had my way, Last Chance To Fall would be even longer. I would have loved to learned more about Lindsey’s family, her life in NC, and I always will take more of The Kinney clan. I’d also love to see where they end up farther in the future. Hint, hint, Kelsey!
Overall, Kingsley’s writing gets stronger each book, and her characters are real and lovely. Highly recommend!
