Book Review – True Abandon by Jeannine Colette


** Provided on behalf of the author for an honest review **
** Review by Kylie from Bloggers From Down Under **

I had been eagerly waiting for this novel to drop into my kindle ever since I agreed to read and give an honest review. Each and every teaser that was released to social media, had me hoping that True Abandon lived up to the hype.

And in a simple answer……..hell yeah it did. It held me captive from cover to cover. Annoying daily things like work and running a family was keeping me from devouring this novel. Instead I took it nice and slow, getting to completely understand the characters.

“It astounds me that one man could leave a scar so deep that I’m still affected. It’s not just the dreams; it’s the way I live my day to day life, straddling the past and the present, unable to see the future”

Trish and Jax used to be a “thing” in high school. Until the fateful day a video emerges. An intimate moment shared between the two of them, has now done the rounds on social media.

Fast forward nine years later, during the worst hurricane her home state has seen, a message will stop Trish in her tracks. Jax has been in some sort of accident, and it doesn’t look good.

Should she just let sleeping dogs lie, or face her past and open up old wounds again?

Starting a new life in Hawaii is exactly what Trish needed. She’s happy, in a job she loves, and the friendships she’s made she knows will last a lifetime.

What will happen when Jax shows up at the resort to win her back?

And just like Jeannine says “While there are do-overs in life, there are second chances to be had. We’ve all made mistakes – some bigger than others. But it begs to ask the question: Is our character based on the mistakes we made in high school? Can we right a wrong from the past with the actions of today?”

Did this novel touch a nerve with me?

Yes it did….

I too have made mistakes, but the person I am today is because of the mistakes I did make.

So Jeannine, thank you.
Thank you for trusting me with this wonderful story.
I loved the story, I loved the characters, I loved the location details and I love your ability to make us love a character even when they are being a jerk!!!
