Book Review: Rough Edges by Kimberly Krey





Rough Edges Allie’s Story, A Companion to the Sweet Montana Bride Series (Second Chances #1)



Divorced mother, Allie Emerson, never imagined she’d be raising two teenage girls on her own. Between parenting and paying the bills, she hasn’t even thought about meeting a man. That changes once she hears local carpenter, Braden Fox, is in need of a secretary. Back in high school, Allie had done all she could to deny the sparks burning between her and Braden; but would the chemistry still be there after all this time?

Braden has heard all about what Terrance did to Allie and the girls, has been planning to stop by and see how she’s getting along, but Allie beats him to it by showing up at his shop in search of a job. Her unexpected visit reignites the old flame Braden used to torch for her; trouble is, old feelings of resentment return as well. Allie did choose Terrance over him, after all. And as much as Braden wants Allie in his life, he’s not sure he can open his heart to her again.

With this second chance at romance, will the
bumps in their relationship be too much to get over,
or will this carpenter learn to smooth out the past?

My Review

Can you get a second chance at love? After getting a divorce from her husband, Allie was now a single divorcee with two daughters to raise.

Deciding she need to get a job her mother suggested that she heard that

Braden was looking for a secretary.
She knew him from High School and was her
EX husbands best friend back in the day.
I really enjoyed this story, it is a positive and clean romance to read.

Sometimes it is hard to find a good clean romance and this book is it.

I liked the way the author written the issue with the daughters and their Dad

and the positive words Allie had said. I think more people need to not drag their kids through their own issues.

This book made me happy and of course there was some intense times during this story.

But in the end, it worked out and just felt great reading this story.I also liked that this story was geared for a little older, not young adults and was written well and enjoyable.

I did receive this book for an honest opinion and cant wait to read more of this series.

There was a quote that I liked in this book:

Allie was speaking to her daughters and she quoted her father:

“dont love someone for who you think they ought to be,

or what you hope they’ll become. 

Love them the way they are or let them go. 

I just think this is an awesome quote to remember.

I hope you check out this book if your looking for a clean romance book.

I love this quote, Diana

    Great review have seen this book on your page before and it does sound good. Speaking as a divorce parent it’s never fair to the kid or kids keep them out of it I no it’s hard but you have to try hard for the kids they need both parents even if the parents can’t be together.
