Sweet Forty-Two by Andrea Randall Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

November Blue Series #3
Release Date: December 11, 2013


Regan Kane arrived in San Diego with nothing but a violin, his car and what feels like a lifetime of grief. Although he’s surrounded by friends and music, one delivery from the post office reminds him that the past is always just around the corner. When he befriends a local bartender, Regan wonders if letting go is what he wants to do at all.
Georgia Hall has spent most of her life in the shadows of her mother’s mental illness. Pushing away those around her ensures they won’t get hurt when she succumbs to the same fate.
All of that unravels when she meets Regan. As her life spins out of control and the line between reality and fairytale blurs, she has to make a choice to trust or fall.
Regan and Georgia are searching for healing among the wreckage. Will doing so together make moving on all the more sweet?
Or will the secrets and darkness of the past drive them apart?

NOTICE: If you have not read the first two books in the series, please do not continue on to read my review. As major events occurred in book 2 that shaped EVERYTHING that happened in book 3, you should not read on unless you want a MASSIVE spoiler. Seriously, I love this series and I don’t want to spoil it for anyone but it is literally impossible to write a review on Sweet Forty-Two without spoilers for the second book in the series. I.E. I personally do not believe this book should be read as a standalone as you would miss out on an amazing story by not reading at least the second book in the series.

Mini warning rant over! I absolutely adored this book! If you’re looking for a steamy sexy read, go somewhere else. This is a story about a man that fell deeply & hopelessly in love and then tragedy struck and he lost her! As you know, we experienced that loss in Reckless Abandon (if you didn’t know, I warned you before not to read on)!! This was such a beautiful story to follow one of the most heart breaking surprises I’ve ever read.

I wanted so badly for Regan to find his happily ever after, he is such a kind hearted and talented soul that has infinite amounts of love to spread. After his hiatus (running away) in Ireland he takes the chance and moves to California with Bo and Ember to record with Ember’s parents. While in California he meets a sexy and utterly confusing woman named Georgia.

I really wouldn’t have pictured Regan being interested in someone like Georgia who has had so many life altering things happen to her and has the hardest time being an open person. She keeps so many secrets from Regan as he has so willingly poured his heart out to her, I just wanted to punch her in the face!! I really really wanted to hate Georgia but ended up loving her in the end! This was a great story for Regan and I loved being able to experience more Bo and Ember as well. I absolutely love the November Blue series!

If you’ve read the first two books (which I hope you have since I told you not to read this review if you haven’t yet) then you definitely need to read the rest of Regan’s story!
