In the meantime, Navy decides to sign up for an online course to help her find herself, to get outside her shell. But when someone from her past, someone she had very strong feelings for a decade ago, returns she’s not ready to let go of the hurt that she caused. Carrick’s ready to fight for her, but is Navy ready to hear the truth?
The book is a fun second chance romance with quirky characters. From the “interesting” men that Navy is paired up with to the former friend that is pursuing the career Navy wish she had, they each in some way help Navy on the journey to find herself. The book did move a little slow and if you’re looking for a steamy read this might not be the one for you as it is fade to black (which in no way detracts from the story), but it is sweet and you can’t help but cheer for Navy and Carrick.
I was a little underwhelmed as to the WHY the relationship between Navy and Carrick blew up the way it did. It just seems that things could have been a little more dramatic, or that ten years later, when Navy is nearing thirty, that maybe she realizes how holding a grudge for something like that was a little juvenile.
The book is mostly told through Navy’s POV but there are a couple of chapters from Carrick’s POV. I honestly would rather have seen more from him, at times Navy’s pessimism got a bit annoying. In all, to use one of Navy’s terms, this is a great beach read and fans of romcom will eat this one up.
I received a copy of this book for review purposes.
“Love is paradox. Love is contrast. Love is complicated.”
This was a cute second romance. Navy and her roommate Kat were living life and having a good time. Unlike her roommate, Navy is little shy and not at all a serial dater. But things are about to change when Kat challenges Navy with a dare to go on five dates, picking one lucky winner for her Valentine. Navy is not too keen on it but she recently ran into her ex Carrick… well, literally ran like bat out of hell into her apartment. So with nothing to lose and at the same time wanting to prove that she is way over Carrick, Navy reluctantly agrees to her roommate’s bet. Navy goes on to date all these interesting men but she soon realizes they all pale compared to Carrick. Can Navy find it in her heart to let go of the past and find happiness with the one guy she is meant to be with?
This book was a sweet, cute, heartfelt read. Most of the story is told in Navy’s POV so I felt like the story sort of focused more on Navy and her journey of finding herself and finding love again. Navy is sweet and a little quirky. She has had a jaded view of men since high school. She thinks men lie and crush all hopes which might have to do with how things were left with Carrick. She is scared to take a leap again.
I like Carrick – handsome, persistent, a Marine – I always love men in uniform . Carrick’s got secrets in his closet but he is ready tell the truth in the form of a book – did I mention he is an author? This hot man is all kind of talent… Carrick is willing to do what it takes to win Navy’s heart again.
The story was a slow steady read – nothing too hot, angsty, or dramatic. If you are looking for a little sweet, second chance romance this is the one for you. I have to say I do love all the letters from Carrick though – the man is super sweet and swoony <3
“Love is comfort. Love is understanding. Love is forgiveness. Love is home. And when you love someone, no matter what happens between you, love can become something else, something more.”
Cheers to “something more”! And happy reading!
