I received a copy via author in exchange for an honest review.
“You make me braver, you challenge me, and you force me to face the things I’m afraid of. You push back when I push everyone away. You didn’t let me get away with it.”
This made me emotional in a good way! This was my first book by Allison Mullinax and I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next. I couldn’t put this down once I started reading. The southern bits weren’t overdone and thank goodness for that!
This book is about healing and letting people in. It’s about opening up yourself up and learning to move on after something terrible happens. I’m not going to go too much into the plot because I don’t want to spoil anything for ya’ll.
Now I really wasn’t a fan of Danni Rose at the beginning. It was a bit too much attitude. I understood her and empathized with her, but I did get frustrated with her from time to time. Benson had my heart from day one and was a damn sweetheart. Anybody that could put up with Danni Rose deserved a medal! He was patient and never not pursued her. Whatever she threw at him he caught it and never stopped being by her side when she needed him.
I loved the connection between these two so much. It was beautiful to see Danni Rose open up and let Benson into her heart. She was a fighter and so strong. She learned to move on and allow herself to be happy.
Overall this is a good first book! I enjoyed the writing and can’t believe how emotional I became. If you are a fan of contemporary romance, then pick this one up.
