Eliza's Review: Reach Me (Wrecked) by J.L. Mac

Reach Me

Title: Reach Me
Series: Yes
Author: J.L. Mac
Release Date: 31st July , 2014
Rating: 3 "You know how to reach me" Stars

It’s a well-known fact that single parenting doesn’t allow for much dating. Over the past nine years, Lindsay Fuller’s heart has been monopolized by her son, Trey, and she’s perfectly content with that. But with her 30th birthday looming like a black cloud, Lindsay worries that her chances at a happily ever after are next to nil. After all, she’s no sorority girl. She’s no supermodel, either. She’s a Plain Jane single mom with a less than desirable career, a pen pal obsession, and an extremely overbearing younger brother. Financial trouble sends Lindsay’s already hectic life into a tailspin, setting events in motion that will change everything, namely her “single” status. Learning to reach for what she wants catalyzes an epic internal struggle that she has no hopes of overcoming. The question is, will Lindsay give love a shot; and, more importantly, will it be worth it?

Ask single mother Lindsay Fuller what she thinks of Happiness and she'll tell you it doesn't exist. It's an illusion, a sleight of the hand, like magic.

To be fair to her she does have a pretty strong case. After falling pregnant and being abandoned by her college boyfriend she had no choice but to drop out and return home. For the last nine years she's been raising her son Trey; with some help her brother Brian, her father and best friend Maggie. And if all that wasn't hard enough she's facing impending unemployment and the threat of eviction.

But there are something's in her life she can count on, or rather someone... Russ. Her pen pal, friend, confidant of the last 10 years. Not through Russ' lack of trying they communicate through chat rooms, emails and texts only. Reluctant to potentially ruin what they have Lindsay refuses Russ' attempts to take their relationship further.

I'm too scared. Scared of heartbreak, of course, but scared of ruining one of the most meaningful relationships I've ever been lucky enough to hold on to.

Fear of the past repeating itself holds her back from moving forward, until one day fate has other plans for her. I won't spoil how they meet... even though it was a little predictable, they do and Russ has a proposition for her. He wants 30 days.. 30 days to take care of her, to show her how good they can be. As much as Lindsay resists she finds herself swept up in the fairy tale she thought she'd never have, Russ is charming and every part as wonderful as she dared to imagine.

Although I sympathise with Lindsay, her actions at the end just *sigh* annoyed me and whilst I enjoyed the last 50% much better than the first; As I said it was a little predictable. But hey, every story has to start somewhere and I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of Lindsay and Russ'.
