BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Second Wind by Aimee Nicole Walker
Second Wind - Aimee Nicole Walker

Second Wind is a feel good book, with plenty of sweetness, but without that sickly feeling you sometimes get with a sweetness overload.

Both men are wonderfully enough in their forties - which makes a nice change from twenty-somethings lol. However, through a series of memories, you find out about their youth, and the decisions they made, bringing you up to the current day. This is a complete story, without anything being missed out, but all necessary to the story.

This is a low-angst story that is very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pacing was smooth, and all the characters were well fleshed out and completely believable. If you are looking for a sweet story about second chances, then I can definitely recommend this one.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy
The Perfect Mother - Aimee Molloy The Perfect Mother - Aimee Molloy

A special thank you to Edelweiss and Harper for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

 

A mommy group dubbed as the May Mothers meet at a park twice a week to discuss being new mothers, swap stories, alleviate their anxieties, and offer advice and support.

 

It is one of the hottest summers on record.  As a break from the heat, and the babies, the members decide a night out is in order at the local hip bar.  Winnie, a single mother, had never left her six-week-old infant, Midas.  One of the May Mothers offers up her babysitter so that Winnie can join them, insisting everything would be fine.  On this stifling Fourth of July, something goes terrifyingly wrong: one of the babies is abducted right from his home.  Midas is missing and the police are asking disturbing questions that are putting Winnie's private life on display and the media can't get enough.

 

None of the other members are particularly close to the guarded Winnie, yet three of them will go to great lengths to help find her baby.  Secrets are exposes, relationships are tested, and the mothers are scrutinized.  

 

All I can say is, what a surprise!  Apparently this book will be adapted for the big screen and will star Kerry Washington (um...yes, please).  Molloy's novel is also eagerly anticipated as one of this coming summer's must reads and I would definitely recommend it as well.

A Willa Pennington Mystery - a one and done for me
What Doesn't Kill You (A Willa Pennington, PI Mystery) - Aimee Hix

I'm always on the lookout for a good mystery or thriller and the blurb for this one sounded quite promising. Unfortunately, the reality didn't quite live up to that promise. The story starts out mysterious enough with our main character finding a dead body, but it quickly becomes more about Willa and Seth's relationship than anything else. I like romance and may have been okay with that part had I cared enough about these characters to want to see them together. Willa turned me off from the beginning when she views finding the body as more inconvenience than anything else and seemed to only use the I'm sorry, this is my first time finding a dead body and I'm upset reasoning when it suited her. I can appreciate sarcasm and even gallows humor. In fact, I often like it in a story, but it just didn't work here. Willa comes off more crass and uncaring than anything else. I also realize that this is fiction and a certain amount of leeway can be given, but the idea that an ex-police officer would be allowed to walk through a crime scene and be that involved in an active investigation was a bit much for me. We do get a decent bit of action toward the end, but it just wasn't enough to save this one for me. The author does show some potential, but in the end, this character and story just wasn't for me and I don't think I'll explore the series further.

No Regrets Book 1 - Aimee Noalane No Regrets Book 1 - Aimee Noalane

Now and then, I would come across a story, which tugs at heart, and bring little tears to my eyes. (No ugly crying) Now this is not an easy feat, few books have ever elicited that feeling. When a book leaves me feeling as if I was on an emotional roller coaster, I know I have found a winner. No Regrets by Aimee Noalane was one of those books.

No Regrets is a story about friendship, love and heartbreak.  This story will gut you and leave you raw. The character’s emotions leapt off the pages, pulling me in and allowing me to connect every facet of their lives. What I loved most about this story is that it demonstrated the emotions of the protagonists. I experienced everything they both went through.   The story was honest, poignant and raw.  It delivered a powerful message about love, loss and friendship.

I loved the characters. Oliver and Abbygail have been best friends since they were both eight years old.  I got a glimpse into this part of their lives, which paved the way to a better understanding of the depth of their friendship. Their actions were what one would expect from the typical teenager.  Sometimes I wished I could knock some sense into them.  Of the two, I found Oliver to be the least mature. I understood he had a lot dealing with, but instead of relying on his best friend, he pushed her away.  Then there were the moments where he toyed with her feelings, which was unacceptable.  One moment he made her feel that all would be well and the next he treats her with indifference.

For someone who struggles with abandonment issues, Abbygail proved to be a strong character.  Never did she think to give up on her friendship with Oliver even though she would be justified if she did.  She believed their friendship was worth saving and was determined to keep fanning the dying flames, with the hope it would revive.

I should warn you, the story ended on a cliff-hanger, but rest assured the remaining books are currently available. Therefore, there is no need for a long wait before jumping into the next installment. I cannot wait to see the outcome Oliver and Abbygails’ journey into adulthood.
I have no regret reading this story.  I found the writing enjoyable; the story engaging and the characters relatable.
