RECLAIMING US by Nicole Richard is a SWOONY second chance romance with ALL THE FEELS!!
I was immediately swept up in this CAPTIVATING New Adult tale, set in quaint Savannah, GA, from the moment beautiful, brainy cheerleader Addilyn Mae Montgomery first locks eyes with her crush, high school heartthrob RJ Watson during a football game. For the next three and a half years these high school sweethearts are inseparable. Addie and RJ are madly, hopelessly in love, forever promises are made and their dreams come true one moonlit night when Addie joyously gives her virginity to the only boy she’ll ever loved. But everything changes in the summer after graduation when MONUMENTAL CHOICES are about to change both their lives forever, propelling them on separate paths that would SHATTER both their hearts.
Nicole Richard, a new to me author, really captures the giddy butterflies, endearing awkwardness, bittersweet pangs and pure-hearted bliss of first love. There is a rich poignancy and homespun charm to this author’s prose and I felt all the searing emotions that our starry-eyed couple experienced. LONGING. SADNESS. LOVE. REGRET. HEARTACHE.
And boy is their angst!!!
Addie Mae makes the ultimate sacrifice so she would not stand in the way of her truelove RJ pursuing his OWN life’s dreams, and while I understood her rationale for leaving him behind, it tore my heart to shreds that they were forced to spend the next seven years apart because of one pivotal choice that had devastating ramifications. But oh my how I rejoiced when they were brought back together again, albeit under tragic circumstances. But Addie and RJ are not the same people they once were, though their love still BURNS hotter than ever. Can they heal the painful wounds of the past and start anew? Or was forgiveness forever out of their reach?
The tumultuous journey these two take together was brimming with sizzling passion, breathtaking tenderness, intense, fiery emotion and FEEEEELS GALORE! I loved the sparkling chemistry and infectious banter between this star crossed duo, and I rooted for them EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
RJ is guaranteed to be you next SWOONALICOUS bff! He is strong and sexy, sweet and caring, exquisitely gentle, fiercely protective, and 100 percent devoted to the only girl he will EVER love. He is the TOTAL PACKAGE wrapped up in one smoking hot bod! But this hunka burning love feels like his choices for the future are limited and worries he will never be worthy of a beautiful, smart, ambitious girl like Addie Mae. And his girl is fully deserving of his never ending adoration. Addilyn is beautiful and kind-hearted, giving and self-sacrificing. Yes she made some life alerting choices that forever impacted both their lives but her love for RJ was never in question. I positively ACHED for these two soulmates to reclaim what they’d once lost and find their way back together! It is not an easy road for this beleaguered couple but the ending was SIGHWORTHY and definitely had me blinking back tears.
My only one quibble with an otherwise FLAWLESS and REFRESHINGLY UNIQUE plot was a trite, and in my opinion, woefully overdone plot thread involving a jerky character that kind of had me rolling my eyes. I wish the author had not gone down this predictable path but I will forgive her this one tiny hiccup because this plot point is really just a blip in the storyline, and does not in any way the diminish the love between the hero and heroine.
Ultimately, RECLAIMING US is a tender-hearted story of TRUE LOVE and SOUL-SHATTERING sacrifice, of PROMISES broken and HEARTS RECLAIMED, of fighting for happiness AGAINST ALL ODDS!!! Nicole Richard is an author to watch and I highly recommend this book to all fans of passionate second chance tales with heartachy feels!!!
RJ and Addie were high school sweethearts. They had one of those loves that they both knew would last forever. They wanted and planed a future together. They made promises to each other that they both had every intention of keeping. They promised to only love each other forever. But making the promise and keeping it are not quite the same thing. As the summer is coming to an end they both need to face the reality of what comes next. Addie will be going away to college while RJ will be staying home and working for his father. They love each other so much but sometimes when you love someone as much as Addie loves RJ you need to make sacrifices in order to let that person live, even if it breaks your heart in the process.
It has been seven years since they have seen each other. So much has changed, but one thing still remains. No matter how much hurt and pain that they have been carrying around, they still love each other. But they both agree that they cannot be more than friends. Well maybe that isn’t true. I think RJ has other plans to get back the girl that he never stopped loving. When a tragic incident brings them closer together, they both find comfort in each other. They keep drifting closer and closer towards each other, towards that line of friendship. It is only a matter of time before they cross it and after that moment everything will change. Will they get their second chance at love?
I loved this book so much. RJ is just this amazing man who is caring, loving, sweet, sexy and has a really big heart. He has had his own struggles throughout the years and while Addie may have destroyed his heart he still loved her. He still held onto that promise that they made and I loved that about him.
Nicole Richard did an amazing job with this story. There were moments that were completely unexpected. I swear I did not see those twists coming but they did and it is what made tis story even better. Because those twists and turns is what brought two people back together. Reclaiming Us will made you laugh, swoon but will also at times bring out so many more emotions. Yes it had it’s sad moments but it also had those moments that will just make you smile. And in the end that is exactly what I was left doing, smiling.
I loved Addie and RJ from the moment we were introduced to them. They had an amazing connection and you could feel how very much in love they were with each other even at a young age. I loved how caring, thoughtful and respectful RJ was towards Addie, these traits just endeared me to him even more. Addie was an equally lovable character. She was smart, loving and fun. The sweet promises these two lovers made to each other simply made my heart smile.
Unfortunate circumstances do find these characters separated for 7 years. When they finally meet again they are now young adults in their mid-twenties. The attraction and connection is still there and the love that never went away is just bubbling below the surface. I enjoyed going along with them in their journey to find their way back to one another.
This is a great read. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good love story. I look forward to whatever comes next from Nicole Richard!
