Love struck me at a young age. Bertie Cooper owned my heart from the second grade right up until the moment I ruined everything.
I didn’t deserve her, not after what I did, so I lied and pushed her away. I took the coward’s way out and I broke her heart. Little did I know, I sentenced the rest of my days to an internal prison of hell.
I now find myself at a crossroads with the blonde beauty before me once more. And she still takes my breath away. Life just keeps on torturing me…
I’ve never believed in second chances, but I’d give anything for one with her.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This has been a good month for me with finding new authors to read. Let’s face it, no matter how fast we can read, there is only so much time in our lives where we find ourselves with a lot of extra time. Especially those of us with children or those who work full time. Being a blogger I find myself overwhelmed sometimes with signups. And then there is the obligation to read and review in a timely manner. The truth is that sometimes I just want to read and forget blogging for awhile. Hey, reading is what started my path into the book community.
That said, this past month I’ve decided to reduce what I sign up to read, and read something that I choose. Don’t misunderstand because blogging is a great way to find new books. As this H.J. Bellus book came across my emails yesterday. After reading the blurb, I knew I wanted to read it. So instead of adding it, I #onclicked from Amazon. I’m so glad I did because I enjoyed this book so much. Now I have a new author to look forward to reading more of.
Yesterday Is Our was emotional. There were some dark and intense moments that brought up the angst factor. There was also so much love and an adorable little girl who, very often, stole the show. This is a second chance romance between two people who have know each other since second grade. A bad decision on the hero’s part tore them apart when they were in college. I’m going to be honest here, I was a bit confused about that situation and thought Cody could have handled it differently. One other small aspect that I didn’t much like about the book is the Cody, Cody…Junior scenario. To say it got a bit confusing is an understatement. There were several moments where I had to reread scenes because I wasn’t sure whose dialogue it was. Let me explain…..The hero’s name is Cody and the heroine’s daughter is named Cody. So little Cody decided big Cody should be called Junior. However, the heroine, Bertie, stilled called him Cody. See where I’m going here? It was a bit confusing. But that is really my only complaint because other than that I enjoyed the book. A lot. Since H.J. Bellus is new to me, I haven’t read the prior books in The Yesterday Series. I plan to though. For sure!
All that said, this was an angsty, slightly suspensuful, sweet story of second chance love.
This is my honest review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
