One More Time, the second book in the Ruby Falls series is finally here and can be read as stand-alone.
One More Time
Back in her hometown of Ruby Falls, Aria Heart is determined to find herself and the happiness that has always felt just out of reach. Something that would be a lot easier to do if her parents weren’t so close by, reminding her just why she left town as soon as she could, and if the house she just purchased wasn’t already giving her problems.
Just when Aria starts to second guess her decision, Tide Goodman knocks on her door and shoves his way under her defenses. Is it possible that the happiness she’s been searching for is attached to a man like Tide, the guy she crushed on in high school who didn’t even seem to know she existed? A man with an adorable daughter and baggage of his own?
In order to find out, she’ll have to put everything, including her heart, on the line one more time.
A nearly four Review:
I’ve wanted Tide’s story ever since I read Falling Fast. He was one of those characters that made an impression, and you just wanted to know more about him. So when news of this book got out I was so excited!
Despite coming from completely different backgrounds Tide and Aria just fit. They start out as friends (sort of), and it just evolves from there. The one thing it never is is casual though. The drama and/or misunderstandings they have are quickly and easily resolved – making this a quick and fun read.
I really wanted to LOVE this story. The writing is good, it’s a sweet story and it’s definitely a book I will re-read at some point – but I just think my expectations were too high for this one.
I sometimes compare books to the line in a graph – some books have very definitive high, lows and movement through the graph, and others are mostly flat (linear) with a few bumps here and there – and for me this story had some movement but mostly followed the line from start to finish. Perhaps not the best description in the world, but to sum it up:I LIKED this book a lot, it had everything I’ve come to expect from a book from this author and it was a sweet, fun and sexy read. And I’m very happy to finally have Tide on my bookshelf 🙂
