Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway - "Still the One" by Robin Wells


I am pleased to be able to be part of Robin Wells Blog Tour. Today, I am posting my review of "Still the One" and am pleased to be able to offer 5 copies of Robin's book (see below). On Sunday, May 16th, I will be hosting Robin's guest post, so please make sure to mark your calendars for a return visit!

Still the One
Author: Robin Wells
Publisher: Forever Hachette Books
ISBN: 9780446555982
Genre: Adult fiction, romance

Synopsis: (from publisher's website)

"After Katie Charmaine's husband is killed in Iraq, all she has left is a closet full of his clothes, a few pictures, and fond memories. She not only lost her love, but her last chance to have the children she's always wanted. Until Zack Ferguson shows up in town . . . with the daughter Katie gave up for adoption nearly seventeen years ago.

Zack Ferguson has never forgotten Katie, or the one magical night they spent together. Seeing her again brings up a tidal wave of emotions: regret over the way he left her, anger at the secret she kept, and desire he hasn't felt in years. But he's in town for Gracie. Their daughter is sixteen, angry at the world, and-worst of all-pregnant. She needs the love of her two parents now more than ever. Can these three forgive the hurts of the past and open their hearts to each other?"



My Thoughts:

For those that enjoy a good romance, I promise this novel will tug on your heart. Take a widow of a Troop in Iraq, a visitor and memories from the past, a secret revealed, and mix it all up, and you have a wonderful story to get lost in.

I really enjoyed this book. The story was heartwarming with a touch of humor and a serious side that makes one look back to teen and summer romances, choices and dreams. The characters were lovable, sassy, funny, and at the same time very serious, causing them to pull you into their lives and making you want to know more about them.

"Still the One" is a wonderful book about love lost, forgiveness, second chances, hope, and new life. A brilliant and heart-tugging escape that will leave you smiling when you finish the story.

Parental note: contains some offensive language and descriptive sex

  4. Thanks for the great review! This book dealt with some pretty deep issues. One of the topics that comes up with an older couple in the book (I always have a secondary romance in my novels-- you get two for the price of one!) is infidelity. It's been in the news a lot lately with Tiger Woods and Sandra Bullock.

    Do you all think that cheating is a deal-breaker for a marriage? I sure do!

    Robin, I think it would be a deal-breaker for me. I’d try to work it out but I don’t know if I could make my heart forgive. Thankfully my hubby is a gem and hopefully it will never be an issue ;)

  9. Great review!! This one looks really good! I was hesitant about it at first b/c I thought it would be sad, but it sounds more uplifting than sad.
