Aubreé Pynn makes readers believe love is all-encompassing and that they need to handle it like a treasured commodity. Her latest book is a testament to that statement. The love story was nice. Here’s the thing, I was not certain the guy would get his girl with the drama he put her through in their past dealings. Jaxon was home to celebrate the holidays with family and friends, but the one thing he wanted most was to reclaim his girl, Kinsley. His first task was to get Kinsley to agree to be his friend again; then he would take steps to be more. The steps to get them there took a great deal of time because both had secrets neither wanted to reveal to the other. Then to make matters worse, the couple’s issues of trust and past hurts stymied much of their progress throughout this story.
What I liked about the story: It was a second chance romance story. Getting the chance for a do-over is my romantic side always peeking out from under the books’ covers to say hello. I am a firm believer in giving the guy a chance to redeem himself for his previous actions—barring abuse of any kind. Luckily that was not the case here. In the end, Jaxon was able to win his way back (with drastic measures) to show his heart belonged to Kinsley. A good read worth 4.0 stars. This author will be one to watch in the coming months.
