Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
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!

Hero: 4.5 stars
Heroine: 4.5 stars
Steam: 4.5 stars
Plot: 4.5 stars
Cliffhanger: No

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!

Loved this story. It took me a little bit to get into it but once I did, I fell in love with the characters. Hunter is gorgeous but not egotistical. Alice is a little bit shy but Hunter brings out her fun side. Loved to see these two get it right!

Wow...I read this book on a recommendation from my book bestie. This book starts off with a bang, literally. I was hooked from the first page. Alicia finds her world suddenly being turned upside down. She needs a fresh start and to break free from current life. Now most people might move to a new town, maybe leave the state. Not Alicia, she goes half way around the globe, down under baby, to New Zealand. Alicia wants to reinvent herself, start anew - lose herself in a new world. She is about to be swept away by New Zealand in the best possible way.

Settling in to her new cozy cottage, I gotta say, I was for just that moment envious of Alicia's new life. It is exactly what she needs to begin this new chapter. That is until she meets Hunter. Clad only in boxers when she first lays eye's on him, she is about to discover that just when you think you have control of your path in life, it suddenly veer's of the road like a run away train. Hunter, the Adonis, is quite the beauty to be hold. He is confident, stunning and wants to know more about his new neighbor. Still feeling the sting from her previous life, Alicia proceeds with caution. Never mind the crazy mixed up dizzying emotions he brings out her, there is no way Alicia is going to get caught up in some 1 night stand with someone she barely knows.. okay maybe that wouldn't be *so* bad with Hunter. Alicia is determine to get settled and grounded in her new life. Hunter is relentless and can't shake how Alicia makes him feel from the moment he almost bumped into her half naked at his house. Working his way thought is own past tragedies, Hunter lives on the theory that men and women can simply have platonic friendships - no strings attached. Why bring emotions into all this? Emotions only get people hurt.

This was a perfectly sweet book about two perfect people who have perfect sex, fall in love and marry. No drama, no problems. Everyone is super nice to them and they are all so super happy.

A nice read if you want the perfect relationship as unbelievable as it might be, but I found it a bit too sweet.

I loved the NZ setting, though.

"Love isn't a train that runs on time."
Who loves a nice HEA?!
I do.
Sometimes..you just want to read a good short story that is nothing but a happily ever after..because sometimes people just deserve it.
Alicia surely did...and Hunter did too. Good thing Theresa Troutman * took a try at writing a little erotica, it was hot & sweet!
"I let out a languid sigh as I admired my Adonis. Who needed an Italian marble sculpture when I had a living breathing Kiwi standing in my bedroom?"
I want to visit New Zealand now <3
