Alex Fontaine was introduced in Hope Over Fear as Sara's close friend. She's an artist with her own gallery and she grew up in a wealthy and privileged lifestyle. It's obvious from the previous book that there is someone in Alex's life that she had a connection with and is still looking for, without success. In the meantime, all of her dates are epic failures and Alex is unable to move forward.

The guy happens to be West Adler, someone Alex met during her high school years and he works on the golf course, employed by Alex's dad. I really liked West right away, I could see how much he cared about Alex but tried to keep her at arm's length for both of their sakes. It became apparent that they wouldn't be able to ignore their chemistry for much longer, yet they both had separate paths for the future.

Alex finally tracks West down, and with a million scenarios playing out in her head, she definitely did not anticipate the reaction she got from him when they meet again. West is a completely different person, hardened and cold with very little warmth in his reception towards Alex, basically telling her to go away. I decided that maybe I had judged too soon in liking West because no matter what he was thinking on the inside, there's just no way he could justify such callous and insensitive behavior towards an old girlfriend whom he never wanted to be apart from.

Fortunately, West's POV is also shared in this book and delves into his thoughts. West is suffering a lot on the inside for so many reasons. Alex, deciding to take her chances, attempts to break through his exterior with little success. I applaud Alex for trying because I would've warned her away. Yet she persisted and wasn't easily deterred.

Wow! The books in this series keep getting better! As you can see on the cover this is a story about unfinished love. High school lovers that were separated and you are left to wonder if they will make it back to each other. I don’t want to give anything away in this review because I hate that but I will say that in the end you will be happy.
The books in this series can be read as standalones as well. It was nice to hear from all the other characters from book one. You meet Alexandra from book one and she was a little mysterious with what was going on in her life. You get to be in her head this whole book and hear about her heartbreaking but beautiful story. This is a second chance love story at its best. J.A.’s writing is beautiful. The way she writes her characters is almost real life.
I highly recommend this book. If you are a fan of second chance romance this one is for you. If you want to read about flawed characters that are so lovable you want to jump into the pages, this one is for you. I can’t wait to continue to read this series. The covers are just gorgeous and the writing just sucks you right in. 4.5 stunning stars.

5+ stars! Beautiful read, just beautiful.

Alex comes from a well to do family; money, privilege, society...and expectations. Alex is an artist, a free spirit, determined to not live the predetermined life her parents have planned out for her. West is a struggling college golfer trying to make ends meet while bearing the brunt of his family's finances. His daddy left and his sister has many medical problems, and therefore, many medical bills. Alex and West meet at the golf course and their attraction is instant. West fights it once he finds out who Alex is, who her family is, determined he's not worthy of her, not what she deserves. Struggling with money, West enlists for the army. Alex gets accepted to an art school in NYC. With only a few months remaining together they make the most of the time they have left.

6 years passes. Although she wrote to him often, Alex never heard from West again. Is he alive? Has he moved on? She discovers, shockingly, not only is he alive, he lives in the same town where she lives and runs her gallery. When she seeks him out, she finds he has changed, in more ways than one and is given the cold shoulder. Can she prove to West once and for all, he's everything she's ever wanted, everything she is.

This story is beautiful from start to finish. The writing is just exquisite. It makes you feel, makes you hopeful, makes you proud. This is the second book in the Over series, and although I knew I liked Alex is book 1, I love her in this story. She's got such a pure and good heart, with drive and determination. West is a fixer, a selfless man who would shoulder the world for the people he loves. You also get a dose of all the other great characters from Hope Over Fear, giving you the humor and camaraderie that made that book so great. I enjoyed this one very much, highly recommend.

I loved this book. I thought it was a amazingly beautiful love story that gives you an inside look on how relationships are changed when one person is dealing with PTSD. It becomes a group effort just to get through the day to day interactions and how isolating it can be until you make the decision to fight the battle together. West and Alex are one of my favorite book couples that I've read this year and after reading almost 130 books so far this year it was tough competition haha. Their story is unorthodox but classic romance all at the same time. I love the attention to detail especially when we get to the description of the locket. It's the small details that help the reader really immerse themselves in the story and that is one of the major strengths of this novel. Along with the devotion to keeping the characters relatable and the situations believable. This is the true reality of a lot of couples and seeing these situations dealt with with compassion and truth makes this a can't miss book! I have a version on my kindle and a print copy- yes, it's that good to where you need two copies!
