Second chance anyone?
Reviewed in the United States on October 31, 2018
What can I say about a clueless hero that has a heart of gold, but had feet of clay as a teen? That’s Drew Lovato – hometown golden boy. Or what to say about a heroine who has no idea what she is worth – to herself and others – because she has been badly…bruised is a good word…when life has knocked her down? Considering she has gotten up, brushed herself off, and made something of herself, she should be proud. Only there are some that keep reminding her which side of the tracks she came from…
Drew has a lot to learn about life and Silver; most of his “schooling” comes from a pint sized whirlwind by the name of Autumn. What a fantastic journey he has! It made me smile, it made me want to smack him upside the head sometimes, and most of all it put me firmly in his corner, cheering him on. Even though he grew up with money and family prestige, he needed to face some pretty strong characters in his family in order to grow up and fight for what he wanted.
And Silver… She is strong and smart and beautiful and sassy as all get-out. Underneath it all, she is still hurting from her teenage love and breakup with Drew but she has made something of herself. When she finally realizes no one can take that away from her, she opens herself to many possibilities.
As with most of Ms. Mallery’s characters, there is love, and snootiness, and down-to-earthness (I know it’s not a word but it fits!), and fun, and snark. Gotta have snark. Seriously, Not Quite Over You was a great read, with ups and downs, fun and tears, but most of all, love. I really enjoyed this book and it has become one of my favorites of this author.
