Natasha Madison was another author on my authors I need to try this year, and I’m so glad that I did! Let me start with Hailey. This girl takes mega hit after mega hit. But she’s super resilient. Then we have the broody Jensen, who has taken some hits of his own. I really enjoyed how they both helped each other move forward. This was a pleasant love after loss story, and I loved the beachfront setting. I did have some issues on the writing front. There were some editing issues, sometimes it was hard to tell who was talking, and there was no warning for many scene changes. Overall, this was a fun read after an emotional start, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.
