Review: November Rain

For this review, I chose November Rain by T.J. West and is my first book I have read by this author.  This book is a part of a series called Rain.  Book #2 is called Purple Rain and Book #3 is called Rain Street.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Marty Mayfield fell in love at the tender age of 16 to Matt Cooper. He was her world until the day he left to go into the Air Force. From many letters she had written and mailed, responses from Matt never came. Her world felt destroyed and lonely. After graduating high school she moved to Paris and lived there for 12 years. During her years of living there she met the man she thought could replace Matt. Turned out her years in Paris brought nothing but pain, loss and suffering.
Making a fresh start from her wounded past she makes her way to San Diego, California where she ends up finding the one person who had always made her feel whole. Will she be able to get past her scars and give Matt her whole heart again? Will she be able to forgive him for leaving her hopeless? Denying her love for him will be a struggle, sexually and emotionally.

Matt Cooper was the black sheep of his family. He wanted nothing more than to play music and live outside his father’s influence within the Air Force. Having no other choice, he took that road and left the one girl who loved him unconditionally. Regretting his decision for not writing Marty back, he continued to serve his country. Years later, after retiring, he started living his dream in San Diego, but the loneliness was always there. His heart had always been with Marty. He couldn’t get past the thought of ever living without her. Feeling like he came out of years of a coma she enters his life again. He felt his love for her immediately and more stronger than ever. Getting her to trust him again will be a battle, but he was never going to give up. He was determined to keep her in his life forever

Matt and Marty met in high school.  At 16, she loved Matt, but he broke her heart when he left for the Air Force because it is already decided by his dad.  Would you allow one of your parents to tell you how to live your life?  Or would you stick up for yourself and live your life your way?  

Do you think Fate brought them back together after all these years?  What are the chances that they both are in the same town at the same time?  Yes, I do believe in fate.

I love the theme of second chances.  It is one of my favorite themes.  Both Marty and Matt realize that they still love one another.  It is such a sweet romance.

The reason for 4 stars is due to language.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
