I love second chance stories. I read a little excerpt and was really excited to find out what went wrong between Regan and Lucas. I really love it when the universe conspires to give me something I'd like.
Chasing Forever Synopsis:
Regan Pierce’s life is finally on right path . . .
She’s on track to graduate at the top of her class. She’s just been offered a summer associate position with one of the largest law firms in San Francisco. She’s in control of her future and the painful secrets of her past are long forgotten.
Her life is perfect . . . until Lucas Evanston, sexy former college baseball star turned lawyer extraordinaire, her boss for the summer, walks back into her life.
Six years ago, Lucas thought he’d met the woman of his dreams. Regan was everything he never knew he wanted until he ruined it all and left her broken and unable to trust.
Just like six years ago, the chemistry between them is as explosive as it is unexpected, but Regan wants nothing to do with the man who turned her life upside down and trampled her heart.Lucas has other plans. Regan owns him, heart, body and soul and he’ll do whatever it takes to win the heart of the woman who haunts his dreams.
Review: ★★★1/2 stars
I loved the premise of this book; lovers reunite unexpectedly. I even liked Regan. I enjoyed her chemistry with Lucas as well. I didn't like Lucas as much as I'd hoped and even though he grew on me, I still didn't feel the level of connection I usually do. It really had to do with Lucas's actions when he first met Regan. I really would like to tell you exactly why, but that could spoil the book for those who haven't read it yet. There was a chat later that cleared up some of my questions but I didn't feel like they were strong answers.
I read it quickly but did have to put it down at the 55% mark because of Lucas. I was also expecting more resistance from Regan regarding giving in to her feelings for Lucas. I was also hoping for more clarification regarding Regan's parents. There were somethings mentioned at the beginning of the book that had bearing on Regan but then nothing afterwards.
I really felt as if Chasing Forever had a lot of promise. It was a quick and short enjoyable read. I haven't read anything by Lisa Cardiff in the past and look forward to seeing what else she's written/will write.
