Review: Smoky Rooms by Laura Braley (Life is More Than Candy Hearts)

Review: Smoky Rooms by Laura Braley
IN A GLANCE: Girl meets boy in a bar, but Smoky Rooms isn't your every day Fairy Tale. Each of them have a troubled past. Will they both be able to move beyond their pain and love again?

Chance Lassiter is a former rock star on the verge of a new start, after he let the excesses of the music industry lure him into ruin the first time around.

Lindsay Brandon is a former actress trying to rediscover the person she once was before a change of circumstances forced her to make a decision that destroyed her spirit.

A series of mistakes and bad choices have brought their lives to where they are. Can a chance meeting filled with introspection, one lonely night in a smoke-filled corner bar, help them accept the mistakes from their pasts and move toward the future together?


Smoky Rooms is the second story in Life is More Than Candy Hearts.  This great story is written by a wonderful author by the name of Laura Braley.  Her great characters pull you in with their back stories, each of them are filled with hurt, pain, and mistakes.

I enjoyed reading about these characters and rooting for it all to work out.  The only thing I didn't like about this short story is that its way to short, I needed to see their love grow.  This story mainly happens over a few months, but they only talk one night and fall in love.  I would have really enjoyed seeing their love grow and see what happened after that one night in the bar.  It just seemed a bit rushed, but that's because it is a short story.  Other than that I really enjoyed reading this story!


Great story for anyone who has struggled to overcome their past.
