After losing the future that was promised to her, Kelsey O’Neil says goodbye to her old life and sets out on a journey to capture her own independence, find happiness, and maybe even true love.
A cozy cottage in a quaint Irish town seems the perfect place to start again. And Shaun Brannon, the sexy but mysterious author next door, could be her second chance at love. But Shaun is incapable of opening his heart to any woman. Can Kelsey find out why before she falls too hard?
Ten years ago, Shaun Brannon stopped believing in love, or marriage. His only belief now is in lust. The demons he wrestles with daily are too dark to let him get close to a woman without breaking her heart. Then along comes Kelsey, who makes him wonder how it might feel to give love another chance. Is he brave enough to show her his deepest scars?
I have read four books by Dori Lavelle so far and absolutely loved them all and needless to say, To Live Again also falls in that same awesome category. I loved the blurb and instantly felt that I should read the book. The cover brings a smile to the reader's face and captivates him enough to pick up the book.
The story is well conceived and expertly executed. It is about finding your place in life and I felt connected with the characters. Kelsey felt like a friend and I became her champion, praying for a happily-ever-after for her.
The story flows smoothly and takes us to a quaint, quiet and very beautiful town of Dreara in Ireland. This is the first part of Shaun and Kelsey's story and is a quick read. The introductions to characters, sub-characters and settings is made here with the first installment of the romance between Kelsey and Shaun.
The settings and characters are realistic and the story feels like it is being played right in front of our eyes. I could visualize each and every scene and without having visited Ireland, I feel like I know the place already.
