I found that the characters were relatable and endearing, there was a good hook, and I found myself invested in Quinn's life, both personal and professional. The story is also quite well written, easy to get into and I read it within a few hours, my kindle practically glued to me.
I do wish it had been a full length novel, I think it would have good to see more about their relationship, and also hear about Liam's grief, and Quinn's trauma because I don't think the complexity of the trauma was addressed. However, while often novellas can seem rushed, I don't believe this one was; as much as I wish it was longer, it was written successfully as a novella.
I think this book can be classed as somewhere in between a YA and NA novel, it was light, funny, a really wonderful summer read. For people that prefer clean romance, this could be a book for you. Unfortunately, I didn't quite feel chemistry between Quinn and Liam, I felt like something was missing slightly.
However, the bullying aspect of this book is something I'm really happy was included. It's often assumed that bullying is exclusively experienced by teenagers. But showing bullying in the workplace is a really important issue that Lauren K. McKellar explores. And I really love how Madison handles it.
Overall, while this may not have been a 'blown my mind' kind of read, I enjoyed it and I'll definitely be reading the next book in the series (which is already out *squeak*). If you want a 'reading on a white sandy beach' kind of book, or a 'reading by the pool' kind of book, or a 'reading in the garden on a lounge chair' kind of book- then I'd recommend this book. It's a perfect summer afternoon read. Happy reading and thank you Lauren McKellar.

The story is relatively simple and yet the feelings are so strong they will jump out from the pages and surround you. If you've lost a loved one, you will immediately connect with the heroine and you will understand her struggle to return to a normal life and to allow herself to be happy and feel again.
It's a sort of second chance romance, even though, technically Quinn and Liam were never a couple. I enjoyed watching them reconnect and fall in love, but I had one small issue with how the book ended. I'm not sure if it's because they will be starring in other books in the series, but when I reached the end, I was left wanting more and I was a bit sad that I wouldn't see get to see them together, even if only for one chapter. I would have loved to read an epilogue a few months later, that would show what happened to them and how they lived their happily ever after.
Apart from this, though, I really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance without graphic sex and with emotions playing a big part in the story. Yes, there is the occasional curse word but there are no descriptions of "the Deed".
The book works as a standalone, even though it's a part of a series.
that the characters have felt right along side of them.
That is exactly what I got with this book.
I feel it should have come with a warning something like this “Do not read while you are at a kids birthday party because you may get teary
causing a parent you have never met before to approach you and ask if everything is ok putting you in a position of having to explain you are
reading a book..”
Anyway, Quinn & Liam.. I fell in love with these characters straight away. They were very easy to connect with & the empathy that emerged
towards them was at times overwhelming.
They have actually not been in each others lives for a number of years but when they unexpectedly reconnect it is a second chance for them
to decide if under these new circumstances they are willing to take a chance on each other.
Quinn is an intelligent articulate young woman who has something from her past holding her back. She is stuck in a limbo and isn’t sure she
ever wants to leave it. Reconnecting with Liam has her questioning everything she though she knew about herself. She is finding for the first
time in years she has been able to make friends and smile. There is one person that can’t stand to see her happy and takes every opportunity
to knock her down testing her strength & resilience. As well as being intelligent she has word vomit syndrome (no it’s not a real thing!) and the
stuff that comes out of her mouth is so damn funny!
Liam is an absolute sweetheart & he knows Quinn needs time to adjust to having him back in her life. He is her perfect match & spends his time
Making her happy. His life hasn’t turned out the way he planned either but he has learnt to adapt & make the best of what he has.
This is a short book, but don’t be fooled by the number of pages between start and finish. This book packs a huge punch and will have you feeling
so emotional all the way through. The story is well written the characters likeable, relatable and well developed and the plot flowed seamlessly.
I will say that the ending was not what I expected, but it was perfect for Liam and Quinn. I really hope we get to read more about this couple as
This really was just the beginning of their journey.
If you want to read a book that makes you feel the raw vulnerability of the characters and has you reaching for the tissues one minute and laughing
Out loud the next, then you seriously need to get your one click finger out for this one!
Quinn's dreams to work for her favorite magazine, Lola, were forgotten as she felt she needed to stay in town close to her Mom and the memories of her brother. But, her Mom knows her well, and after almost two years of nudging, convinced Quinn to reach for her dreams once more. However, Quinn is sure she's just biding her time until she can return home, to the little comfort zone she's created for herself there. Thankfully, fate has other plans as she runs into Liam while handling an errand for her boss, Madison.
She can't get over how good Liam looks, the boy she loved has become a sexy man, and yeah, just seeing him still impacts her. Liam approaches her, and it's obvious he's happy to see her, even if it's a little awkward at first considering their history. Liam wants to catch up, and judging by the look in his eyes, do so much more at some point. But Quinn turns him down, believing it's better to just leave him in the past, yet she sees the hurt her refusal caused.
Liam and Quinn continually run into each other and the attraction between the two is hard to miss, plus, they're actually talking, confessing their feelings for one another and the desire to spend time together. As they do, their connection only strengthens, as does their craving for one another.
Will Liam and Quinn give accept their feelings and desires? Can Quinn move forward with her life, never forgetting Braden, but beginning the process of letting him go? Or will she run from hope, scared of where it may lead? Can Liam make her see that she is not at fault for what happened that night? Can he convince her that her scar doesn't define her nor detract from her beauty? Is there a HEA for them?
One-click now and follow along as two people who've both suffered a tragedy begin to live again, fighting for the future they've always wanted together. Based upon the numbering of this book in the series, I'm assuming it's a prequel and hope we see more of Liam and Quinn because we aren't actually given a HEA for them, just the illusion that there will be one. I wish more time had been spent on them as a couple.
On a purely personal note, there's a scene in the beginning, after she and Liam have seen each other again and he's started making his interest known, when Quinn is out with her fellow interns and sees Liam, who happens to have a beautiful blonde talking to him, and said blonde then kisses Liam's cheek before walking away, at which time Liam immediately makes his way to Quinn. I really wish something would've been said in regards to who she is and what that situation was. It was never referred to again. Why show something like that, allowing Quinn to see it, and then never resolve it, so to speak? No, we never saw Liam do anything other than stand there while this was going on, but it seems unnecessary to even have that play out and then we never get an explanation on who she is and why she kissed Liam on the cheek. I would think Quinn would ask him at some point.
