* REVIEW * - Reaching Rachel (Living Again #2) by L.L. Collins

Reviewer : Angie
Rating : 5 Stars

Have you ever gone to a movie that EVERYONE is telling you is the best, but when you get 
there, you can't help but be let down? That's how I thought this might be, but boy, was I wrong. I 
had heard so many great things about this book that I was a little worried it couldn't live up to the 
hype. It DID! It's a love story, but it is also a story about abuse and survival that draws you in 
from the first word.

L.L. did a wonderful job of letting me feel what it might be like to enter into an abusive 
relationship, even as a strong woman, and how hard it could be to get out. I never quite 
understood it, but now I feel as if I have a much better understanding. Rachel and Devin's love 
story is one you will laugh, cry, and swoon over. Does it get any sexier than a good guy SWAT 

I highly recommend this book. I haven't read Living Again, but it is now at the top of my TBR. 
Thank you, L.L., for taking the time to write such amazing characters into a love story I won't 
soon forget. 

**Disclaimer:** This book contains difficult topics that may be hard for some readers and is suggested for a mature audience only. It contains strong language, sexual situations, abuse, and other content that may be problematic for some to read. Please keep this in mind when choosing to read this book.

Rachel has always been seen as a wild child, never committing or settling down. She wants it that way, so that no one ever finds out the truth. Deep down, she is crushed over something that happened years ago that resulted in losing the only man she ever loved. Then she meets someone who tries to convince her that she’s ready to commit again. But some things are not what they seem. Realizing too late that she’s in over her head, and with her life on the line, she comes face to face with her past in a way she never thought possible.

Devin was in love once, and it destroyed him, making him swear off love forever. After a promotion and subsequent move unexpectedly brings him into the middle of her dangerous situation, he must come face to face with his past and to the woman who broke him into pieces. But she needs help. Desperately. And maybe, just maybe, he didn't know the real truth of their past. Can he help her survive the terrible ordeal she's been through, and during it all, can he safeguard his heart from her? Or will the truth of the pain that has kept them apart show him that he can't live without her after all?
