Synopsis

Tragedy ripped the security from her life. Left a single mother, Alexis’s fear of loss insulates her from the rest of the world. Her best friends from college and close family are the only people she keeps close.

A man from her past has always been in love with Alexis. He’s never met anyone that measures up to her. Garrett is a musician, who never really imagined he’d have the fame and fortune that he’s found. But, even with that, what he’s always wanted is out of reach… or is it?

When Garrett and Alexis meet up by chance a relationship begins. Neither expected what happens. She can’t be sure she’s ready for the complications a relationship brings. He will have to work overtime to win her heart without any assurances it will be successful.

Alexis is learning about life without Jed, and is feeling more secure with parenting on her own. Garrett appreciates his fans and is enjoying his life on the road but misses having a private life. The lives they have built separately leave little room for a budding relationship, but their hearts won’t take that into consideration.

Will the cards they’ve been dealt get in the way of a love that is meant to be? Is love enough to overcome loss and heartbreak? Can they accept all that the other is, without feeling like they are living in the shadow of their former lives?

Amanda’s Review

Felicia Lynn has done some tricky things with this story. Let’s start with the cover as it’s the first thing you see: It is intriguing, yet points toward a typical love story. The title, almost knot and almost infinity symbol is interesting and suggests something long term. When you get into the story you get the feeling of Alexis needing to be saved, pulled out of depression and back to learning how to love. Then you get slapped with the gorgeous cowboy country singer, Garrett. When introduced you think he’s going to be a spoilt superstar probably needs a bit of ‘saving’ himself. Instead he is… incredible, amazing and every woman’s perfection. He shares so much in common with Alexis and wants nothing more than to love her, help her, provide what she can’t for her daughter Sierra and most of all just be a part in her life without changing it, her or any part of the way Alexis and Sierra live, love and behave.

Throughout the novel I constantly found myself getting annoyed at Alexis as she just has no confidence in herself worth and the effect she has on those surrounding her.  Also I could not help but laugh at Sierra and Garrett’s antics at times and swoon at the very sweet things Garrett comes up with.

There’s not really any big issue or trouble that you find in many books. This is an easy couple day read that explores a relationship and the problems that crop up and how they are fixed or diverted or avoided in the future. Garrett works damn hard in the book and you can’t help but love him and Sierra.

The one thing I loved is that the title was used in the dialogue. When you see the meaning it affects you emotionally.
