I received a copy from the author for an honest review.
Holy cow! START AGAIN just shredded my heart from the very first page. My heart broke for Katie and what she went through. Her husband Eric and her daughter Maggie are tragically killed by a drunk driver and obviously, Katie’s life is destroyed. When a story has me in tears in the first chapter, I just know it is going to be like being on an emotional roller coaster and START AGAIN is just that.
J. Saman does a beautiful job with descriptions of places and peoples feelings and I was instantly sucked into Katie’s life. She decides that she needs a change of scenery and goes on a cross country trip with the son of one of her mother’s friends. Okay I’m not going to lie, Ryan became my hero almost from the very start. I wanted him to fall in love with Katie and show her that she still had a lot of living to do. She needed to move on and begin to be happy again and I truly believed Ryan was the one to show her that.
Wow wow wow!! I really loved START AGAIN. From the very first page I was emotionally invested in Katie and I just wanted her to be happy and to smile again. She was so young when her life was turned upside down and I cried when she cried and I love when an author does that to me. I felt like I was right there with her and I was holding my breath at the end of START AGAIN, praying nothing bad was going to happen. Please, you have to give J. Saman a try! You won’t be sorry. I can’t wait to read more by her and I’m praying she is busy writing Luke’s story because I’m sure it will be just as awesome as START AGAIN is.
