RECOVERY by L.B. Simmons Review & Giveaway!!!

 Recovery: (Book #1.5 Mending Hearts Series) - Novella

 I have the perfect life.
I’ve finally found my happy ending. 
I fought through the loss of one husband, lucky enough to be given a second chance at a lifetime of happiness.  Settling into our new lives, however, may not be as easy as it seems. 
What really happens after the fairytale ending?  What happens after the prince rescues the princess?  After he sweeps her off her feet and carries her off into the sunset? Do they truly live happily ever after?
This is our story.

Wendy's Review 
I'm not sure I can justify a review without 2 words: BLAKE MORGAN!
I've been completely and utterly enthralled with this man since the beginning of 
Running on Empty. There is just something about him that makes my heart do a 
big ol' jive. I love him I say!
So, we start out with a bathroom visit and lots of laughter, because 
let's be honest here, if you read RoE, you know that Alex and Harlow are 
freakin hilarious and seriously what every
friendship should look like. I know something is coming, but really, it wasn't THIS. ha!
Had me floored. Job well done, L.B. well done indeed. I figured it would happen, just 
not right out of the gate, and boy was it a good way to start the "game".
Next comes a ceremony. One that may I say, I was dying for. STUNNING! 
Once again, I'm back to being obsessed with a fictional character, uhhmm...Blake....
The way that he is with these girls...*swoon*....I feel like THIS is the guy that all little 
girls dream of. And why wouldn't they? He's, there are just no reasonable words 
to describe the type of man that Blake Morgan is. Strong, sexy, capable, dependable, 
reliable, sexy, a little on the naughty side, emotional, manly, trusting, did I mention Sexy?
So, fast forward and there's a bit of a rift between Alex and Blake. 
SON OF A BITCH!!! I wanted to scream at both of them START FUCKING TALKING TO EACH OTHER!!! 
Finally, it all comes out, and man...I'm so happy! Alex is finally learning. But of course
when you think that things are just starting to be simple and work out, HEART WRENCHING PAIN. I thought for sure that I was gonna lose my shit when the BIG thing happens. 
I mean, come on, they're finally getting settled in and making a "me/mine" sort of 
thing turn into an "our" thing. Thank God for Blake and of course Harlow. I would have 
pulled out my hair if not for her. 
Needless to say, Alex and Blake are a beautiful couple and I adored every minute spent with them and their story. Which in the end is one big HEA that I was so ready for.
I give this novella 4.5 BIG SLOPPY WHORE-DER BJ'S

Steph's Review
This little novella captured my heart. I was so excited about spending more time with Alex, her girls and of course, Blake! It is a wonderful continuation of “Running On Empty”. We get to experience the emotional hardships of trying to successfully blend together not only a family, but a couple, who have to essentially rediscover one another after years apart and a devastating past. Alex is still adorable. I find her so charming and fucking funny. Her interactions with Blake and her girls are priceless! But, she is still a work in progress in “Recovery”. This novella is short, sweet, and full of emotion.
I recommend this book to anyone that enjoyed reading “Running On Empty” because this novella is the icing on the cake! A definite one click’er…

 Running on Empty: (Book #1 Mending Hearts Series)

I had the perfect life.  
Beautiful and loving husband.  
Three gorgeous little girls.
Successful career.
The only thing missing was the white picket fence.  I really wanted that fence.
Three years ago, I lost that life.  I lost my husband.  And I lost myself.  But, eventually, I found my way through the darkness.  I’ve made peace with my new life. I have my girls, and that’s all that matters. They are my world.  I have no illusions of ever falling in love again or getting whisked away on a white horse.
But then he came back into my life. On a freakin’ motorcycle.
There’s no way I’ll let him turn my life completely upside down.  Absolutely no way.
The question is…
How long can I keep pretending that I’m happy with my life being right-side up?
