The Life We Almost Had by Laura Miller & GIVEAWAY

Genre: Small-town, second-chance romance (contemporary, new adult)
Pages: 290
Release Date: September 19, 2017

Back before everyone left the little town of Sweet Home to the ghosts, she was the girl next door. And he was the boy, who could never get on her father’s good side. But none of that mattered. The only thing that mattered was that her heart had picked him.

But that was years ago. And now, Berlin’s sister is praying for someone to show up to take her brother’s mind off the girl from his past. And surely enough, that someone does. But will this girl be able to cut the chains of his first love or will she just make him fall harder for that little girl he left behind in Sweet Home, Missouri?

One week is all they have. 

My Thoughts…

Laura Miller has a way of writing.   The Life We Almost Had is a story of second chance, overcoming the odds, and following your heart.      Iva and Berlin were teenage neighbors.   From their first meeting as teenagers you could feel a connection between them.    It was interesting and entertaining seeing how they would navigate having a “friend” of the opposite sex and how long it would take them to realize what they had was definitely more than just a friendship.

I really like that there were parents in the story and they had their own little story happening but the story revolved around the teenagers.      There was guidance, grounding, yelling, silence, and love between the parents and the teenagers but the parents did not take over the story.   They were in the background just making sure that things did not get out of hand between Iva and Berlin.     This just made the story seem more realistic.

Onto the good stuff… many years after Berlin moves away and Iva loses touch with him they have a chance meeting and instantly the sparks are there again.   There was absolutely no doubt these two had to be together but how?    Berlin has a 2 year contract and Iva is headed overseas to pursue her dreams once again they are torn apart.   But true love is strong, things can change, fate can step in.  

I cannot possible rave enough about this book.   As with every Laura Miller book my heart was tugged at, broken, and put back together.      I know that when I start a book from her I will not be able to put it down.    I recommend picking up your own copy ASAP. 

Thank you Laura Miller for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
