Title: Max’s Redemption
Author: L. Wilder
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: November 5, 2017
Harper Campbell was beautiful, smart, and innocent.
I’d loved her even before I knew I did.
There was just one problem. She was my best friend’s sister.
She was off-limits in ways I couldn’t begin to explain, but I couldn’t help myself.
We were just kids when we fell in love—young and carefree. The world was right there at our fingertips. Then tragedy struck, and I felt I was to blame.
Knowing I would be a constant reminder of the heartbreak I’d caused, I did the only thing I thought I could—I left.
I’d loved him for as long as I could remember, and losing him almost broke me.
I tried to move on.
I tried to forget.
But how do you forget the one person you love with all your heart and soul?
I never thought I’d see him again, but with one unexpected encounter, he was back.
I never believed in second chances. I’d always thought there was no way to go back and fix the mistakes we’d made, but I learned that it wasn’t about changing the past. Second chances are for proving that we can be better—even after we’ve failed.
This is my first L. Wilder novel and I must say… I’m not a convert. YET.
I felt like this book had so much potential until it went downhill for me.
The first half of the book, I was hooked. I was excited, giddy and restless for more… by the end of the first half, I was a blubbering mess. oh! the saddness! my heart literally broke into millions of tiny pieces…..then… the second half started and I noticed a decline. Nope. It just didn’t do it for me anymore. And the climax was so anti-climactic. I was promised a ‘wild ride’!!! where the hell is it?!
But I will say this, this is a spoiler of sorts, the climax? granted it wasn’t who we thought it was but still… come on! I don’t want to be harsh but I could hear crickets chirping in the background after that ‘revelation’.
Maybe I am being harsh because others seem to love this book. And, I know the star rating might confuse some but the truth is, I loved the first half, it’s the second half that ruined it for me.
Why don’t you give it a try and let me know… Maybe you guys will like it.
