I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a review and to participate in this blog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours.
Two people. One chance to let it all go.
Seeking redemption, Beverly Morgan has spent the last four years building an empire that was someone else’s dream. Devoted to her work, a handful of friends, and an array of charities, she’s been able to lock away her heart and convince herself it’s dead. After an unthinkable tragedy, Beverly should know by now that a single day can change everything.
She can’t run from love forever.
Gavin has it all, a thriving business, phenomenal family, supportive friends, but an hour with Beverly Morgan makes him question his entire life and his own happiness.
She could be exactly what he needs, if she’s brave enough to open up again.
My Review – 4 stars
I don’t usually read books very quickly but I sped through this one! I found the novel very fast paced and was connected to the characters. I really felt for the main character, Beverley, as she was very likeable – she was career driven and intelligent and I felt we saw her character develop as the story progressed.
This book is your obligatory romantic read where you will really fall for the characters. As Beverley is getting back on her feet and learning to trust again, I feel that a lot of women (and men!) can relate to this feeling. Perhaps not in the same way as this character as she had a tragic accident but most of us know exactly what it’s like to lose trust and have to grow and develop that again.
The reason why I dropped my rating from 5 stars was merely due to the ending of the book. I did not expect it to end how it did, which I suppose is a good thing but I wasn’t loving the cliffhanger that it finished with as it felt like it all happened a little too quickly and was quite an abrupt way to conclude an otherwise good novel.
I really enjoyed this book on the whole and felt like it was a romantic, speedy read so I’d be happy to read it again.
Ashlynn Cubbison is a goal-oriented, driven woman, who owns and operates four companies with her husband. They have two beautiful sons together, and although her life is chaotic, fun, full of love and never the same each day, somehow she finds room for writing as well.
Growing up Ashlynn struggled with reading. Then, in her sophomore year of high school, a small seed was planted. After acing a literary test, her teacher looked her square in the eye and said “you’ve been selling yourself short all year. I wonder what you could achieve with some effort.” After delving deeper into books, she discovered Pride and Prejudice, and has been an obsessive reader ever since.
Eventually her love of books translated into writing. She hopes to inspire others, especially children, to find their passion as she did.
I hope you enjoyed reading my review on Chasing Beverley. Be sure to check out this upcoming author, and good luck in the giveaway!
