REVIEW - Say it Again - S. Moose




TITLE - Say it Again
AUTHOR - S. Moose










BLURB:



People always leave. 

After graduating from college, Cameron Pratt’s spending the summer with her best friend, Grace Shea. There’s only one problem. Her brother, Jacob, will be there too.

Jacob Shea. Only one word describes him. Douchebag. 

His touch doesn’t make her body tremble.

His eyes don’t see her heart.

He’s nothing to her and she wants nothing to do with him. 

When Jacob finds out Cameron’s in town, he’s doing everything he can to win back her trust and make her see how good they’ll be together. 

Will Jacob be able to open Cameron’s eyes, or will the walls around her heart be too high and unbreakable?





REVIEW:



Say it Again is a great second chance story. This book has some humor and lighthearted fun. This story also goes over some more serious topics as well. This book has a lot of interesting characters. I really enjoyed the overall theme of this book.

The plot of this book I really enjoyed. I really like second chance romances. There is something about past lovers finding their way back to each other that warms the heart. I loved that about this book. These characters spent years a part but the chemistry is still tangible when they meet up again.

The characters were wonderful as well. I loved Cameron. She seemed like a real girl with real baggage. I loved how she said that trust had to be earned and that once trust was broken it was hard to get back. That really resonated with me.  She is a wonderful character. Jacob was a pretty good character as well. Jacob has a lot going on in his life, but he still makes time for Cameron. I really liked that about him.

The heat in this book is palpable. These two characters have a lot of tension between them. I loved watching their interactions with each other. Cameron was especially interesting because she was playing hard to get even though she could feel the chemistry between the two. Jacob, on the other hand, is a strong alpha male who knows what he wants. This translates into some delicious heat on the pages.

The writing style is really the only area I felt could be improved. The pace of this book was a bit fast. I also felt there was some parts of the story that occurred a little quicker than I feel would be natural. I also found Jacob to be a little bit much sometimes. While an alpha male can be hot, you don’t want it venturing too far into the possessiveness because then it can come off as controlling. With that being said, mostly I enjoyed this book.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. There could have been improvements, but the book is fairly well as it is now. I would recommend this book to friends who love a good second chance romance. I also would like to see another book about two of the minor characters. I feel it would give us an update on these characters while also exploring these minor characters as main characters.
