Kris leaves his small town, best friend and his family-including his girlfriend-behind to seek his career in acting. Athena, his ex goes on with her life but trouble strikes after college and she comes back to her home town. Meeting up again is monumental in more than one way and not just for the leading characters. Enough said!
Both Athena and Kris are very easy to like because of their friendly natures and honesty, with themselves as well. Kris I was worried might be the arrogant star but I was pleasantly surprised. Athena has a secret that certainly is a doozy and explains a lot about why she is like she is and my heart went out to her. Together they had such amazing chemistry, their passion nearly lit the pages on fire. 😉
The secondary characters were terrific too and really supported the story well. I would love to know Shannon’s story actually, what a live wire she is in the story. As usual there is a nice dose of mystery and I’m already looking forward to reading the next book. I absolutely love the slight crossover into another series written by this author, even if by mention alone, very clever!
Great descriptions, some light hearted humour with fun banter, a sprinkling of suspense in an absorbing and fast paced storyline, and some quality writing make this an outstanding story that I recommend to everyone.
Both main characters have things they need to deal with, and overcome. Athena has tucked herself away from the world to keep herself safe, but with Kris' return she is forced to deal with her past in a way she simply hadn't before. I truly wanted Sophia to go away...for a long time... She sure managed to show her true self to everyone. I adore Athena's bestfriend, Todd, and want him for myself!
Athena's not ready to face her ex, but she has no choice. He's her brother's best friend and best man, so he's coming home to be in her brother's wedding. Thank God for her best friend, who agrees to be her fake boyfriend so she can save face when Kris and his plastic girlfriend show up.
Kris may have moved on from missing Athena (or so he thinks), but that doesn't mean the sight of her doesn't make his heart miss a few beats. Will his stay in their hometown make him feel like he never should have left? Will Athena give him the second chance it seems his heart wants?
I'm a bit torn about how to rate Powerful. On one hand, I like the world Powerful presented and found the story entertaining. On the other hand, I failed to sense a strong connection between Athena and Kris, and I hated how easily she forgave him and gave him a second chance. I wanted him to GROVEL his rear off, feel at least half the pain she felt when he ghosted her. But nope. And he had the nerve to show up with a girlfriend, a very unpleasant girlfriend at that. If he had really respected her and his best friend, he would not have shown up with a woman he knew would be ridiculously rude, wouldn't have shown up with another woman at all. Sigh...still, I basically liked Powerful, and it's well-written, so 3.5 stars seems to be as fair as I can rate it.

Oh this story hit me in the FEELS from the very start! Athena and Kris, the shared emotional baggage, the CHEMISTRY, the history, all of it made for a story that packed a punch!
Oh TB, best friend and older brother, I ADORED him! His insights really helped me connect and fall even more in love with Athena and Kris. And Todd? Todd is precious, and everyone NEEDS a Todd in their life. Seriously, can that be law?
HOLY MOLY but this story took me on one HECK of an emotional rollercoaster ride of a journey and I loved every single second of it!
Second chances, miscommunications, a heavy history and lots of baggage, well, it definitely kept me on tenterhooks as I greedily devoured the pages.
Athena and Kris had me SWOONING, and I desperately want more of their story! If you're looking for a driven, emotional, action packed story with twists and turns galore, Powerful is absolutely the book you need to read next!
