Soaring by Kristen Ashley
If you’re looking for a nice new adult story, this is not for you. This is about finding that second chance at love late in life, about blending 2 families, about a mother finding herself and reclaiming her life, and I’m pretty sure Kristen Ashley was inside my head while I read this. It was eery the things I was reading about, the feelings I had while reading Soaring, they seemed to describe exactly what I’ve encountered in my life. Don’t worry, you still get your KA Alpha and strong heroine, even if it does take her a bit to find her strength again. P.S. She threw in a tiny reference to Fairytale Come Alive which had me smiling so hard since it’s a favorite story of mine. [March 2015]
One of the many things I love about Kristen Ashley is the fact that she writes about older characters. Grown-ups who have screwed up and are trying to learn from their mistakes and move on. That sums up Soaring. It's about second chances. At life. At love. It's about starting over. New Town, new friends, new outlook on life. With all of that, we get the Alpha Man, the sassy heroine, the detailed descriptions and the hot sex we always get from Kristen Ashley. Fantastic.
