This is not an easy review to write but not for the usual reasons.
What was the book about?
Kari and Kacey are meant to be. They met in college, fell in love immediately, were really good together until the day Kacey left out of the blue, with no more explanation than some obscure family problem she needed to deal with, and never came back. Ten years later, she moves in the house next door to Kari, with her nine-year-old daughter. The attraction is still as strong as it was when they were twenty, but Kari is terrified of being hurt again.
Second chance; Children and family
I loved what I read. I liked the characters a lot (despite Kari needing to chill a little, especially when it comes to her sister’s love life), I liked the story, I liked the amount of angst, I liked the writing. The story is very sweet and Erica Lee does a very good job of conveying feelings and emotions.
The narrative is too thin, it needs a little more fat here and there. What’s there is really good and makes me regret what’s missing even more. I don’t want to make it sound as if it wasn’t good. It was, I’m giving it 4*. But I wish there was more. Not more to the story, more in the story. So a frustrated 4*.
The chemistry between Kari and Kacey is so intense, I’m amazed Kari manages to resist it for so long.
This is the second book I read by Erica Lee, and I can’t wait to read more.
