Fix You (Second Chances #1) by Mari Carr is a sweet romance.
What if love can’t heal all wounds?
After too many years of secretly loving her best friend, Zoey realizes she’s been shortchanging herself. It’s time to take action. This New Year’s Eve heralds the year she’s going to tell Rob the truth. Even if he is on the road, reaching for musical stardom with his band.
Her plan is derailed when she discovers a lump in her breast—and it’s not “nothing to worry about”. How can she ask Rob to take a chance on love when her future is so uncertain?
Rob has spent his entire life chasing his dream, but the moment he hears Zoey’s voice on the phone, he realizes he’s been running the wrong race. Zoey never sounds like she’s been crying. Ever. Without a second thought, he books a flight for home, determined to give her everything she needs. A shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold…and nights of intensely emotional, passionate sex.
His biggest challenge, though, is convincing his best friend that he’s in it for the long haul. Because he finally knows what he wants, and it’s not fame and fortune. It’s her—and her love.
This book runs the emotional gamut between scorching-hot passion and the pain and fear associated with cancer. Keep a box of tissues next to your glass of ice water.
Fix You is a sweet love story that dips into the waters of friendship and love ever so gently. The characters are likable, each set up in the prologue for their own book in the series. The flow was smooth, making the book a quick read. The main characters obviously have a deep connection so it felt right that they finally got together and the flashbacks helped build their relationship.
Since I'm more of a jump-into-the-rough-waters reader girl, I was disappointed by the level of emotion. There was so much potential to go deeper, to dig down into all that gripping reality of their situation, that was just skimmed over. Fix You was good, don't get me wrong - readers will enjoy the book and likely want to continue reading the series.
Fix You is a good read.
