Summary: When two worlds collide, it can only be fate.
Collin knows trouble when he sees it. A beautiful girl crashing into his car? She should be flashing a neon DANGER sign. He knows better than to get involved with a fresh-faced babe who could break his already-tattered heart. After graduating from college, he’s on track to start over in a new place. He’s discovering what he wants from life, away from the shadow of his overbearing father and the betrayal of his cheating ex-fiancé.
Veronica’s home life morphs from trailer park to homeless after a bloody fight between her brother and her ex. She’s on the run from a situation that promises to be deadly. Without a home, money, or friends, she’s at Collin’s mercy.
Fate brought them together. Will a secret from her past tear them apart? -Goodreads
My Thoughts: I graciously received a copy through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I am a complete sucker for tragedy pushing two people together, so I was really excited to read this book. You have two people from completely different worlds being shoved together in a twist of crazy circumstances and oh boy were they crazy! From hit and runs, to hitch-hiking and so on! Even the secondary characters had me grinning and wish for more!
Both Collin and Veronica have their quirks and are hiding from their pasts. Collin has been burnt, badly, from a previous relationship and so when Veronica comes into his life he struggles with his past controlling his future. I really enjoyed reading from his point of view. I found him a really interesting character! His internal struggles as he let go of the past and tried to move forward to Veronica was endearing to read.
I think what I loved about Veronica and her story is that while she had grown up poor, she was not what you expected. She had stuff going for her and her brother was keeping them from becoming the proverbial trailer park story. She was not what I was expecting and I loved that! Unexpectedness makes me happy!
I never read the first book, Chasing Luck but this is a stand-alone series. I do want to read the first book though. I enjoy Brinda Berry’s writing!
