We all deserve one.
But what happens after the happily ever after.
Is it really happily ever after?
Recovery by L.B. Simmons picks up right where Running on Empty leaves off. Alex and Blake are getting married. They’re finally moving forward with their happily ever after.
On their wedding day Alex gets big news. News that makes Blake thrilled! He’s in heaven. He’s getting it all!
After the wedding and honeymoon, things are quite how Alex thought they would be. Blake is tense and not talking. Alex can’t figure out what’s wrong. It all comes to head one night.
Then, things go from bad to worse in the blink of an eye. They realize what’s really important, but will Blake and Alex survive?
I loved getting a glimpse into what happens after the Happily Ever After. Alex and Blake are a dynamic couple who have been through hell in order to be together. We should all be so lucky to get our Blake. He’s perfect.
Watching them work through the problems couples face when they first move in together was awesome. Not everyone reacts the same way and I enjoyed watching how they worked things out. They’re problems were compounded by Alex having children. The girls were great, but it just adds to the adjustments, for both Blake and Alex.
I’m excited there is going to be third one in the series. This time with Tatum. So we get a new story! Yay! L.B. Simmons did a great job of setting up the story for Tatum. I think it’s going to be as interesting as Running on Empty!
L.B. Simmons is a graduate of Texas A&M University and holds a degree in Biomedical Science. She has been a practicing Chemist for the last 11 years. She lives with her husband and three daughters in Texas and writes every chance she gets.
Running on Empty: (Book #1 Mending Hearts Series)
I had the perfect life.
Beautiful and loving husband.
Three gorgeous little girls.
The only thing missing was the white picket fence. I really wanted that fence.
Three years ago, I lost that life. I lost my husband. And I lost myself. But, eventually, I found my way through the darkness. I’ve made peace with my new life. I have my girls, and that’s all that matters. They are my world. I have no illusions of ever falling in love again or getting whisked away on a white horse.
But then he came back into my life. On a freakin’ motorcycle.
There’s no way I’ll let him turn my life completely upside down. Absolutely no way.
The question is…
How long can I keep pretending that I’m happy with my life being right-side up?
