Paige’s Review – Survivor (Sweet Home Dixie # 2) by Kayla Marie

The author takes us on an emotional journey of sadness, hope, love and healing. ~ Paige, Guilty Pleasures

Can love heal all wounds,
or do some scars never fade?

After a tragic accident took everything from her, Avery is left broken, struggling to find her place in the world again. Now back home in Mason, Alabama, she goes through the motions, carrying on for the people who love her yet longing for the life she lost.

Her future seems bleak until Reid, a handsome mechanic and ladies’ man, charms his way into her life. Though he screams trouble, he sparks something inside her too tempting to ignore: the desire to live.

Reid is tired of meaningless flings and one-night stands, but after betrayal left him with major trust issues, anything more is beyond his reach.

When Avery, the enticing and mysterious new bartender in town, awakens emotions he never thought possible, Reid has to decide if she’s a chance worth taking or if some risks are better left avoided.

Will love be their second chance,
or will the past consume their future?

Survivor is the second stand-alone novel in the Sweet Home Dixie contemporary romance series.

I knew the author was going to bring me on an emotional journey before I started reading. I prepared myself for the obvious storyline of the book however I’m still coping with others.

Avery is a upcoming Nashville star when the unthinkable tragedy touches her life. With the help of her sister she’s able to heal physically but still has emotional scars. With her guard down Reid strolls into her life.

Reid hasn’t been lucky in love but that’s about to change. He fits easily into Avery’s life. The pair enter into a quick relationship. They are at a comfortable stage in their relationship when the author drops an emotional bomb.

I found myself yelling quite a bit at the last half of the book. I couldn’t believe the author went there. While I am still trying to put my emotions in check, I found the book worth the read and enjoyed this new to me author.

4.5 stars
