Love this Second Chance at Love Series Starter
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 31, 2022
I absolutely loved Mine to Have by Natasha Madison; it is an incredible second chance at first love story. It is the first book in her Southern Wedding series. I loved Mine to Have and am looking forward to reading the other books in the series. Natasha Madison showed that she is an amazing storyteller. I could not put Mine to Have down, and I loved every moment on every page. Who does not love hot sexy men, strong females, loving families, and friends, who always support one another? My favorite part is how the title of the book is incorporated into the story by a simple statement from the blurb. I really enjoy how the book is told in the first person from the perspective of the main characters. I love getting the insight and feelings from the different characters. Mine to Have is filled with heartbreaking and heartwarming moments. Mine to Have is filled with so much emotion. It is filled with all those things that we have come to love and expect in a love story, Natasha Madison did not disappoint, especially with the poignant and bittersweet moments that filled this page turner. Mine to Have is the story of Travis Baker and Harlow Barnes, veterinarians, who met and fell in love when they were students in veterinarian school. Travis broke up with Harlow because he did not want to have a long-distance relationship and did not want to Harlow to move away from her family, fearing that she would come to regret that decision. When they were together, Travis asked Harlow to promise that she would be by his side on the happiest day of his life. So, when Harlow receives an invitation to Travis wedding to Jennifer Garner, she responds that will attend. Multiple mishaps happen the day of the wedding, the worst being an allergic reaction to Jennifer and a trip to the emergency room where Jennifer confesses that she cannot marry Travis. Travis returns to the venue and announces the cancellation of his wedding and finds Harlow tending bar with his best friend, Bennett. I love the chemistry between Harlow and Travis. Seeing Harlow, Travis realizes that his heart has always belonged to her. They spend his wedding night together, and the following morning his sisters Shelby, Clarabella, and Presley interrupt their together time and Clarabella offers to take Harlow to get her car. After they broke up following veterinary school, Harlow deleted Travis’s contact information and blocked him on her phone. Since she is not responding to his texts or phone calls, Travis shows up at her veterinary clinic. They decide to try the long-distance relationship, but life keeps getting in the way of their time together. I love the decisions that both Harlow and Travis make to have a life with one another. My favorite part of Mine to Have are the two epilogues that go above and beyond the happily ever after, and that one is told from Travis’s perspective and the other from Harlow. I especially love how the second epilogue hints at the identity of the next Baker sibling who will walk down the aisle, or not. I love the characters in Mine to Have, the characters feel like family and friends. I enjoyed all the interactions between the Baker siblings, especially their teasing that made me laugh. I loved all the characters in Mine to Have and I am looking forward to reading the other books in the series. Who does not love family that always have each other’s backs? I thoroughly enjoyed Mine to Have, who does not love second chance at first love story. Highly recommend this incredible love story and am so looking forward to reading the other books in the series.
