Changing Lanes by Leaona Luxx
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Change. It's change and how well you handle it which defines a person.
Three times in my life, I have been faced with such changes. Once when I was fourteen. Again, at eighteen. And now again at twenty-eight.
Twice, she was there.
Ten years ago, I gave up everything, including her. At the time, it was the right thing to do, for both of our sakes. Walking away from her isn't what I wanted, it's what had to be done.
Now, she's here. People like me don't always get second chances, this happens to be mine. That's if she'll have me. If she'll accept why I left and the fact, she'll always be second.
You see, I have a secret. It could change everything when she learns the truth. She may be the one walking away this time.
We're about to find out.
I actually wasn't asked to review this book from anyone...I just picked it up because I wanted to read something that was different from what I'd been reading. I was intrigued by the blurb and after reading the intro that they give you on kindle unlimited, I decided to buy it. I did not know that the same book I was getting ready to read was from the same author I would meet a couple of weeks from then. OMG!! I held myself together but really y'all...I was astounded that I didn't hop over her table and mob her. I wanted to buy ALL her books but I reserved myself to this one because it was the first one and only one I've read so far. It holds a very special place in my heart because it was not only my first book from this author (who by the way is awesome!!) but my first conference. I cried, I laughed, and I even wanted to throw my kindle at the wall a couple of times because of the absolute stupidity of Torrie sometimes...hindsight is always 20/20. I wanted to reach through and shake her and go "GIRL....please just ask Brannon about what happened!!! For the love of God, if you don't stop throwing it up in his face every 5 seconds - He needs to run yo tail over." I was seriously saying that and a bunch of people who know me so well are shaking their heads because....they know me.
Brannon - Dude had the patience and heart of a saint. I think I would have seriously buried her body on my ranch...probably halfway through and called it a day. But, then that would have been the end of the book! I hated Torrie's dad - I kind of kept hoping that he'd get hit by a semi, but that just NEVER happens or a bird would just crap on his head at the closing ceremony at the Hotel opening but nada...no poop!!
As a side note, working in mental health has taught me about women like Ava...Jesus help us for those types of women and y'all know if you're reading this and you've read the book if you're an Ava. I have this mental pic in my head of her and it's just crazzzy eyes lol. Leaona did this book an awesome justice and I'll definitely be reading her other books!! Pick it up and if you don't...then you're crazy!!
