Nice 2nd chance romance
2 February 2018
This review is for the main title only - there was a bonus novel included, so while full length, the main title finished at 50%.
This was a nice second chance romance. The story was delivered in 2 parts - the first being their high school years, the 2nd 10yrs later when Nevada moves back to town. I found the first part was well written and captured the sweet high school romance between Nevada and Yardley. The character development was good, however I did feel it didn't need to be as long - we got the idea and if it had been shorter perhaps the 2nd part would have been longer. The 2nd half I felt was rushed. They went from being at odds to working it all out very quickly - like in the course of a car ride. I felt Nevada needed more time to really absorb what Yardley had revealed, especially seeing as his wife who he had loved dearly had only passed away 6mths prior. I did like that they acknowledged that the things they did and said when in high school could have been done differently and resulted in a completely different life for them, but that it happened because that was all they knew when they were 18/19.
If the 2nd half had been longer and played out on their reconciliation a little more this could gave been a 5 star read. But it was missing the challenge and time for things to settle. Still a nice read though.
