Rising from the Ashes

Book Title: Rising from the Ashes 
Author: Jessica Prince 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: February 25, 2014 


People make mistakes when they're young, but how they choose to come back from those mistakes is what matters in the end. Savannah Morgan found true love at a very early age, but one rash decision — one that she would regret for the rest of her life — was all it took to end her relationship with the love of her life. For seven years, Jeremy Matthews has accepted being ""just friends"" with the only woman he's ever loved. Finally deciding that enough is enough, Jeremy relentlessly pursues Savannah until he forces her to see just how right they are for each other. When Savannah's past mistake is revealed, threatening the future she so desperately wants, the fate of their relationship lies in Jeremy’s hands. Will he be able to forgive Savannah, or is the relationship truly over? When struggles and obstacles threaten the foundation of Savannah and Jeremy's relationship, will they choose to let each other go, or rise from the ashes of the past to claim their  happiness?


I looked back out my window at Jeremy, taking in the broad chest, ripped abs, and muscular arms pushing the mower around my front lawn. Sweat was running down his sexy-as-sin torso, pulling my eyes to the worn out jeans that were resting low on his hips. The white T-shirt he’d shown up in earlier had been discarded and was hanging out the waistband of the back of his pants. He was a walking advertisement for sex, and even my neighbors couldn’t help but come outside to appreciate him.
I let out a sexually repressed sigh and went back to my conversation with Lizzy. “He’s bulked up a bit over the years, but yeah, for the most part, he’s always been pretty cut.”
She was silent for several seconds. “No offense, babe, but how in the ever-living hell did you give up having sex with that for the past seven years?”
I leaned my head against the glass and squeezed my eyes shut. “With an iron will.”
She started laughing on the other end of the phone. “How’s that working out for ya right now?”
“Well, considering I’m two seconds from knocking his ass out just so I can take advantage of him, I’d say not so good.”
Do you need more, or will these work, or do you need a few more?

~My Review~

Within the first chapter, I was immediately hooked! You automatically connect with Savannah, and Jeremy. Especially if you ever had your heart broken, when you were a teenager. Living in the same small town as your ex would not be easy, would be even harder, if you had the same group of friends. For the past 7 years, Savannah has been keeping a secret from everyone, except for one of her friends. Later on, when you find out what her secret is, you might be upset with her…..but in all honestly, I think she had the right intentions, and didn’t want to hurt anyone. Savvy (Savannah) has been punishing herself for so many years, I just wanted to jump into the book and hug her! But then there were times when I wanted to slap her, because she is so STUBBORN! When the secret comes out, Savvy learns how to stick up for herself, and actually put herself first. 

Since Rising from the Ashes, is told in dual POV’s, you learn a lot about Jeremy. He is dating Charlotte, who is probably the most delusional person! She just not take a hint, when Jeremy doesn’t want to be with her anymore. Of course, she thinks that she is better than Savvy, so she tries make things worse for Savvy. After ending it with Charlotte, Jeremy is determined to win Savvy back, showing her what she could have, if she gave him another chance. Jeremy, is so sweet!! I think I need to move to a small town, to find a guy like that! ;) 

Yes, this book will make you cry, but it will also make you laugh! Also this book can be as a stand-alone. I definitely recommend this book!!!!!
