This one picks up on the cliffhanger left in WHEN WE WERE YOUNG, so you absolutely have to read that one first to understand what's going on.
If there's one thing I love, it's strong female characters, and Rainey shapes up to be one of the strongest, as she battles herself and everything she's known in an effort to figure out who she's living her life for.
Rainey Matthews had her life change on her in an instant and all her dreams were gone when her husband, Parker Matthews, said their marriage was over. Yet she slowly began to find herself again with the help of Levi Hayes.
But now Parker has changed his mind and wants Rainey back. Will she allow him a second chance like she has always done or will she find that it is time to live for herself?
This was such a great book and really addresses what so many women go through or have gone through.
I loved how Rainey finally followed her own path and did what was right for her - independent of both Parker and Levi. I loved her friendship with Ava and how when Rainey needed her the most she showed up to support her with everything.
I was amazed at how much Parker grew up in this book and changed. I loved seeing the change.
Levi was such a great guy and really truly listened to Rainey and was aware of what she liked and didn't like. He had to face his own past in this book and I loved how he handled it.
I loved the chemistry in the book and how Rainey chose the one who made her the happiest.
Such a great book and it makes you think about living your life for you! - By Rebecca
Rainey put her heart and soul into her marriage with Parker. Parker, however, didn’t give her the love she needed and, often didn’t show her the respect she deserved. The final straw is the way he broke up with her is so cowardly and hurtful. The character of Rainey is beautifully crafted. She doesn’t know her own strength. She spends most of her married life as the backbone of the relationship. She fights hard for her husband and herself. After Parker went on his last deployment, Rainey looks for ways to be happy without Parker as her center.
Levi knows about cheating spouses and has a lot of baggage too. He must figure out how to love Rainey while giving her room to come to grips with her feelings for Parker. Rainey also needs to deal with her depression, a disorder that has dictated her life for a long time. Levi is a strong character too. He is in a lot of pain after his divorce. He didn’t know if he wants another relationship, but Rainey is an exceptional woman. Is it possible that Rainey could give him a future? In Out of Goodbyes, Levi deals with his past and Rainey finds that she must be happy with herself before she can be with someone else and be what they need.
Taking a step back to When We Were Young; when I closed the book, I said to myself that I didn’t know what direction I wanted the story to travel. There are pros and cons for both Levi and Parker, in my opinion. However, over the couple months that I waited for Out of Goodbye, I did pray that Gen would consider forgiveness and healing for Parker. It is apparent that he is in pain and didn’t know how to handle his pain from his past, PTSD, and sharing with Rainey. Levi, on the other hand, is in a better place and knows how to love and listen to Rainey’s needs.
Anyway, since Out of Goodbyes is Gen Ryan’s story to tell (she didn't ask me for suggestions) she used her excellent writing skills to give us a realistic story that is one of my favorites so far this year. Out of Goodbyes is a beautiful story of love, growth, more love, and an HEA. I highly recommend Out of Goodbyes with the first book When We Were Young. This is not a standalone novel but trust me you will have a wonderful time with these characters. It takes the reader through a wide range of emotions and come out happy at the end.
