Do you believe in second chances? In Theresa Troutman’s By My Side, she uses finding a second chance as her platform for her characters, Alicia and Hunter. They are both damaged by things that have taken place in their past and when they meet a spark is ignited. Maybe a second chance can heal their damaged souls.
Changing your home from America to New Zealand may seem drastic but for Alicia it is a way to start a new life and leave the past behind. A past of deceit and unfaithfulness by the man that had promised to love, honor and cleave to her until death parted them was a hard pill to swallow for Alicia. She left her ex behind and vowed never to let a man have that kind of power over her again. When she meets Hunter in an unexpected encounter, Alicia is not prepared for her reaction to him. Should she give him a chance?
One night stands and no commitment is the norm for Hunter since the death of his fiancé. He is haunted by her death and does not seem to be able to move past his lost. His time is spent playing with a band and avoiding relationships. Alicia walks into his life and things begin to change. Is this a second chance for love and HEA for them? Read and find out!

Would I recommend this book: Yes! When you have a story of two damaged souls that find a second chance it is bound to be read worthy.
Would I recommend this author: Yes! This is my first read by Ms. Troutman. Her setting, plot and character development insures that it will not be my last. She is an amazing author that writes unforgettable stories about love, romance and finding HEA!
***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***
The character development was excellent I enjoyed each character very much. I think what threw me off was the timeline, and how fast everything happened.
I loved Alicia right from the beginning; she didn’t take no gruff from anyone. I would have done exactly what she did. High Five!
‘I walked right past him, my head held high with all the dignity I could muster and walked out the front door. He didn’t even follow me and somehow, I felt relief.’ – Alicia – you go girl
I wouldn’t say having the guts to move was a strong point, I think it was a must. She loved it in New Zealand before and now that she had nothing holding her to the States why not take a job somewhere you love.
Meeting Tia like that was perfect she needed it.
Now here is where we get to my uncomfortable parts. Hunter is a great character; don’t get me wrong I swooned like nobody business. But she just went through this emotional time, he is healing and POW. Not the relationship I think that was great it was everything else.
Over all I enjoyed this book would I read more from this author YES, she the story flowed very well. I just didn’t happen to like how fast everything happened. Especially with all that happened before. =8o)
*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion and I am allowed to have it.*
Alicia gets great news about a promotion at work, when she goes to tell her husband (who is 10 yrs older), she finds him banging a chick on his desk at work. Alicia divorces him and moves to New Zealand for her promotion.
Second day there, and she meets Hunter, one of neighbors. Instant mutual love at first sight. Eventually we learn that Hunter's fiance drowned while surfing. We also learn that he's an alpha type male who goes after what he wants. And gets it. ;)
After a whirlwind courtship and LOTS of steamy sex, Alicia and Hunter get married. This book is somewhat open-ended, and I'm hoping that the author will turn this into a series, so that we can follow Alicia and Hunter's story, but that both Tia's and Mick's stories will be told.
I am reviewing this for Kylie's Fiction Addiction. I received this for free in exchange for an honest review.
This book will make for an excellent read as your finish up these last week of summer. I encourage you to one click your copy today.
By My Side by Theresa Troutman is the first book I have read from her and I enjoyed it. Alicia thought she had the perfect life. She just found out she got the big promotion at her job and she go to the college to tell her husband about it. She finds out her husband is cheating on her and now she wants to just leave everything behind. She moves to New Zealand and meets her neighbors. Hunter is one of those and he is a bartender and in a band. The Last thing she wanted was to fall in love. But love waits for no one. Can Alicia and Hunter both get over their past for a chance of happiness?
