This here was a good ole sappy romance novel. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but once I got into the story, I didn't want to stop reading it. I really liked the characters and was invested in their relationship; I wanted to know where it was going and if it was going to survive secrets, painful pasts, and fear of the unknown. As I got closer to the end, I was worried about where the story would stop--I'm not a big fan of cliffy endings. Mareta chose a good ending spot and I'm curious to see where Julia and Derick go in book two.
As a debut, this was well delivered. There were some structural things that bothered me and certain areas where I thought more development would be beneficial. However, nothing was so distracting that I wanted to abandon the story. My attention was held and that's what a good book is supposed to do!
This is the first book I've read by this author and it's the first time I've heard of it . . . but I was truly pleasantly surprised. I loved the cover from the get go and I hoped I wouldn't be disappointed and I wasn't. It was a feel good type of book even if the start wasn't all flowers and rainbows.
Told in dual POV the book mainly follows our heroine, Julia and how she's trying to get her life back on track after a heart shattering event. She's one strong leading lady - one thing I always appreciate in my heroines. Although she has suffered great loss early in her life, she doesn't let that define her. Julia fights for what she wants and learns to move forwards in the memory of those she's loved and lost. After 6 years of grieving she doesn't know if she's ready to let go of her past, but along comes Derick and he shows her it's ok to let go and enjoy life again.
Derick is a great hero. He's one of the good guys - he's a hard working man with a wonderful soul who has suffered heartbreak at the hands of his ex-wife, but he's ready to get back onto the dating scene. and in Julia he has found the perfect person to do that with.
Although the book is a bit short, I did love that the author didn't force their relationship - it moved at a slow and steady pace, a truly believable one. They started off as friends and moved on to lovers; I adored seeing them together - they went on sweet dates, revealed their selves before jumping into 'more'.
Although I really liked the book - I'm a sucker for second chance romance - I did wish their story would've ended in this book. I will definitely read the next one as I want to see where the author is going to take Julia and Derick's romance and because I enjoyed her writing style. The writing flows naturally, it's easy to keep up with and the plot moves forward effortlessly. The author did a great job at capturing my attention from the get go and didn't lose me along the way. Kudos to that.
I recommend this book to second chance romance lovers. I hope Julia and Derick will capture your heart like they did mine.
