A Life With No Regrets Review
A Life With No Regrets (Fairhope Book 5) - Sarra Cannon

 

 

A Trip to Fairhope and again I was not disappointed with the story, I have loved every single story that is the Fairhope series, the great thing out this series is that each book can be read as a stand alone and you can still understand what it is happening because they don't follow. 

 

This book gave me so many emotions it was unbelievable, like all of Sarra Cannon's books the characters where well developed and I felt so connected to each character I wanted to cry, laugh and be angry at time with the characters. I felt the pain and joy they were going through. This book approached a sensitive subject and I respect Sarra Cannon for approaching the subject with grace and respect.

 

I don't really read romance but I love this series and its helped me brach out to romance genre. I love all of Sarra books and I Highly recommend ALL of her books.

The Trouble with Goodbye by Sarra Cannon Review
The Trouble with Goodbye - Sarra Cannon

Goodreads Synopsis:

 

One night can change everything…

Two years ago, Leigh Anne Davis shocked everyone in tiny Fairhope, Georgia when she broke up with her wealthy boyfriend to attend an Ivy League university a thousand miles away. At school, she finds a happiness and independence she’s never known.

Until one terrifying night takes it all away from her.

With no place else to go, Leigh Anne heads home to reclaim her old life. A life she worked so hard to escape. On the outside, she seems like the same girl everyone has always known. But deep inside, she’s hiding a terrible secret.

That’s when she meets Knox Warner, a troubled newcomer to Fairhope. His eyes have the same haunted look she sees every day in the mirror, and when she’s near him, the rest of the world fades away. But being with Knox would mean disappointing everyone all over again. If she wants to save what’s left of her old life, she has no choice but to say goodbye to him forever.

Only, the trouble with goodbye is that sometimes it’s about courage and sometimes it’s about fear. And sometimes you’re too broken to know the difference until it’s too late.

 

 

Review:

 

I enjoyed this book but felt the end left it down a lot for me.

 

Stories where the main character are hiding a secret just pull me in. I loved Leigh Ann's character and although she had been through a lot she learned to stand up for herself and what she wants. I can't begin to understand how people in her situation feel, especially once the media get involved. I wanted her to let Knox stand by her but understood her hesitation as the media would use his past against her, It was an all round sticky situation. Knox was just so sweet and supportive as he knew how hard of a decision it was for her which made me really love him.

 

Overall this was an enjoyable read, However the ending was really abrupt and rushed. I would have preferred to have seen how Leigh Ann dealt with all the media attention, how the trial went and the verdict. If the author had continued on and expanded the story it would have made the book a lot better as we could have gotten to know some of the secondary characters a lot more.

 

I gave it a 3/5 stars as although I enjoyed it, I did feel the author could have gone into more depth with the story as the ending was a bit up in the air for me.

1. A Noble Masquerade (Hawthorne House Book #1) by Kristi Ann Hunter

 

Lady Miranda Hawthorne acts every inch the lady, but inside she longs to be bold and carefree. Approaching spinsterhood in the eyes of society, she pours her innermost feelings out not in a diary but in letters to her brother's old school friend, the Duke of Marshington. Since she's never actually met the man she has no intention of ever sending the letters and is mortified when her brother's mysterious new valet, Marlow, mistakenly mails one of the letters to the unsuspecting duke.

Shockingly, this breach of etiquette results in a reply from the duke that soon leads to a lively correspondence. Insecurity about her previous lack of suitors soon becomes confusion as Miranda finds herself equally intrigued by Marlow, a man she has come to depend upon but whose behavior grows more suspicious by the day. As the secret goings-on at her family's estate come to light, one thing is certain: Miranda's heart is far from all that's at risk for the Hawthornes and those they love.

There’s just one problem: the town’s sexy sheriff knows she’s hiding something.

Falling for the opposition was never in his plans, but Nick will give anything to earn Katherine's forgiveness and renew their love.

 

8. 'Til Dragons Do Us Part by Lorenda Christensen

 

Savannah Cavenaugh became a top art thief thanks to a secret ability—a dragonmorph, she can literally fly away from the scene of the crime. Next up: stealing a priceless painting out from under the snout of Lord Relobu, North America's fearsome dragon ruler. True, she's never had to work in the midst of Earth's most polarizing nuptials before. Keeping her identity hidden will demand she get creative, to say the least.

 

Cameron Shaw has one last chance to prove himself. As Lord Relobu's interim security head, he'll ensure the world's first interspecies wedding happens without a hitch. That means keeping an extraclose eye on the wedding planner's pretty young assistant. She's adorable, but something's not quite right.

 

Fumbling her way through bouquets and linens turns out to be the least of Savannah's problems. Crushing on Relobu's hottest human henchman was not part of the plan, and neither was revealing her—ahem—ferocious side. But when her archrival shows up to nab the very same painting she's after, all bets are off…

 

9. Love and Oreos by Elizabeth Bemis

 

Katherine Mendoza is curvy advertising exec whose passion for Oreos is tempered only by her career-driven, workaholic lifestyle. If it weren't for her sisters, both of them also single women, she wouldn't have any fun at all. But when an invitation to her high school reunion lands on her doorstep the same day she takes on the obscenely attractive owner of a chain of fitness centers as a client, she decides it’s a sign from the gods. Who better to get her backside into shape than the guy whose backside she’s about to save? 

Fitness-master Quinn Mitchell is more than happy to help Katherine slim down, but keeping his hands off her curves is proving to be the bigger challenge. Unfortunately, he’s got oversized problems of his own: his fitness centers are coming under fire from a reporter with a vendetta, he’s behind schedule and losing backers, and his business partner insists that being seen with anyone who’s not model-thin is bad for business. 

In an epic clash of wits, wagers–and Oreos–Katherine and Quinn put everything on the line to succeed… but can they win it all without losing their hearts?

 

10. Scandalous Summer Nights by Anne Barton

 

Lady Olivia Sherbourne isn't shy about speaking her mind, except when it comes to James Averill. For ten long years he has been her brother's best friend and her heart's only desire. But when Olivia hears James will soon set sail for an expedition to Egypt, she knows the time has come to make her move. It's now or never . . . 

James has always found Olivia bewitchingly attractive, but what kind of gentleman takes up with his best friend's sister? Not that he's thinking particularly gentlemanly thoughts when she appears on his exploratory trip-three hundred miles from home!-and incites a tavern fight. No matter what the devil she's doing there, it's his duty to see her safely back to her family. But how safe will she be when every starlit night brings wicked temptation . . . ?
