After a bitter divorce, aquarist Katie Rodriquez and her nine-year-old son move to California to start over. A fateful stroll on a Carmel beach turns Katie’s world upside down when she meets a handsome doctor and his troubled family. Chase O’Donnell had everything a man could ask for when a tragic accident changed his life forever. Tortured by his past, he locks away his grief, refusing to face what his loss has done to him and the people he loves most. Katie and Chase must find the strength to rebuild their lives while juggling the demands of careers and single parenthood. When Chase’s daughter lashes out, they soon discover that the price of their romance is too high. To heal his family’s pain, they both must risk losing each other. Facing unresolved guilt and anger, will they have the courage to learn to love again?
First off I want to say how much I enjoyed this book and connected with these characters. I myself went through a divorce, so I understand not only going through it but watching kids go through it as well. I also understand taking that chance on someone and opening your heart back up to love. So yes I connected very well to these characters.
Now with all that being said I want to talk about the writing, plot, characters and all that jazz. I have read this book twice as of today, I enjoyed it that much. Like I said above it really hit home for me and I can't wait to read more by Annalyse. The first time I picked up my Kindle to read this one I was hooked after the first page turn and read it straight through staying up all night long to finish it. I couldn't close my eyes without thinking about the story and the characters so I ended up turning back on the light and read more till there was no more to read.
The emotions of these characters were so overwhelming at times that, okay I admit it I cried...a lot. And if I'm being honest it's because I connected with them so much that it was like watching it on the big screen. The emotions were like a roller-coaster ride at times, one minute I was giggling like a little school girl and others, like I said above, I was in tears.
Something else I really loved about this book was that you could see how much each and everyone of the characters grew from the beginning to the end. I enjoyed Annalyse's writing so much and her style of showing a story through her words is an art that every author strives to bring out. I need more of this author's books. Like now!
So if you are looking for a book filled with romance, love, emotion, amazing characters and one that will make you both laugh and cry, then Ready To Love Again is the book for you!
Rating this book was pretty simple for me, I loved it so much that I read the book twice so yeah.
Oh and I must talk about this cover for a few, I love this cover and think it might just be one of the best covers I've seen from The Writers Coffee Shop. I also want to thank TWCS for sending me this one for review and for letting me be part of this tour.
