When Love Wins Out
When a book grabs me in the first chapter, I'm hooked into wanting to read it. When a book grabs me in the first few paragraphs, well then, it's a done deal... no way I want to put it down. That's what happened in Never Too Late. It started out heart wrenching. I began right away to form strong opinions of characters and began to 'take sides' and began wanting to see certain people get their 'comeuppance'.
I requested a read 4-review copy as I love second change romances. This one did not disappoint. I must admit I began to detest Brian immediately and found Molly a little too naive. At times I asked myself just 'where is her pride'? However, little by little she quit being such a pushover.
This is a very good read. I kept wanting to turn the page and get a sneak peak of what lie ahead ... but I didn't allow myself to do that. I kept wanting to see if Brian, and even Jake, would ever 'get a grip. I especially wanted to see Brian have to eventually look himself in the mirror and see his choices were HIS choices and to quit blaming Molly for everything.
Both Molly and Jake were damaged people. Both had tragic events follow them from childhood on up and they both reacted differently to how to they handled life. It was interesting and gut wrenching at times 'watching' them grow. The book's title was spot on and the cover a perfect fit.
Sweet love story
Never too late was a sweet love story. I stayed up well late into the night to finish it. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. The characters were great and had chemistry. And everything flowed. Can’t wait to read more by this author!
