My Review for Reaching Rachel by L.L. Collins
Wow!! What a great follow up to Living Again!! L.L. Collins hit the mark again!! From the very beginning, I was sucked in and could not put it down! Heck, I even remember staying up until 3am just to finish reading and I had to go to work the next day! But, it was worth it.
The story begins with Rachel who is living life “under the radar”. She is a runaway living with a deep secret and a hidden past. She doesn’t open up to any of her friends and has a string of meaningless relationships with men to avoid attachment and emotions. Her heart is forever locked away because she can only love one man; Devin. But Devin is gone; nowhere near her. She hasn’t seen or heard from him in 5 years. Her life is sad, lonely, full of heartbreak and regret. But on that day, that Devin finally returns, can Rachel let go of the past and overcome her fears of heartbreak? Can Devin reach Rachel and show her how to live again?
Let me just say that Rachel goes through a lot of traumatic and heart-wrenching experiences in this book and I absolutely love her strength. No matter what happened, she never gave up and always fought back. She didn’t try to hide herself from others. She is independent, sexy, smart, funny as hell, and empowering. Her character developed so much in this story and you can really tell that L.L. Collins put a lot of heart and soul into this story. The plot was great, the writing was superb, and the dialogue between the characters was on point. There is also some suspenseful scenes and I was on the edge of my seat. Devin is amazing! He is such a good compliment to Rachel. He is her protector and I loved it! He is also smokin hot and very “commanding” in the bedroom! HELLO!!!
I also loved the fact that we got to see some of the previous characters from Living Again. Umm..Ben aka Dr. Yummy! Yes, I will never forget him! LOL. Overall, this was a great story and I loved it! What a great way to start 2014! I highly recommend this book to everyone!
