Author: Sarah Goodman
Published: January 22, 2014
Dr. Kate Caldwell strives to be the best in everything she does. Except her best wasn't good enough for her ex-husband, Keith. Keith crashed her dream of a fairy tale life when she caught him cheating on her. She is determined to focus on her new project and to giving her twin daughters a normal, happy childhood. Kate has plans to remodel the veterinary clinic her Granddaddy passed down to her. To fulfill one of her dreams she hires an architect and design firm to remodel the out dated practice and horse boarding stable. What Kate doesn't realize is her Life's Next Chapter will be mere yards away, remodeling her clinic.
Luke Ashton is the general contractor for his cousin’s company, Ashton Architecture and Design . Luke has been assigned to remodel Dr. Caldwell’s clinic, and he doesn't expect his latest project to include the woman who could knock his world off it's axis and set it right again. He finds himself working longer hours around her property, spending time to get to know Kate better. Luke is handsome, with his striking green eyes, rugged physique, and a body that would make any woman weak in the knees. He certainly turns Kate’s head.
Kate and Luke feel the chemistry and tension between them, but both are skeptical about moving forward. Kate is terrified to let anyone into her life, let alone her heart. Luke has a past that easily scares women away. He’s struggled since he was eighteen, when unexpected circumstances turned him into a man. Luke is also a veteran with nightmares that follow him all day—every day.
Do Kate and Luke give into one another’s baggage and avoid each other, like their heads tell them, or do they fight for the happily ever after they both want? When ‘life’ gives them more battles to fight, will they be strong enough to fight for each other?
“Luke, my life story is crazy and complicated, why would you want to attempt this?” – Kate
“Sunshine, we can’t erase our past, but we sure as hell can turn the page in your story and create our own crazy happy life together.” - Luke
Does Life’s Next Chapter give Kate her fairy tale ever after, or will it be the chapter she quickly skips through?
5 WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR STARS! I have been waiting for this book since I read the first one and knew there was going to be a second one! Sarah did it again! She pulls you into the story and makes you fall in love with the characters. You laugh when they laugh, cry when they cry, and every other emotion! This book was funny, sweet, suspenseful, romantic, heartbreaking, hot, and everything you could hope to experience while reading a book. I loved Kate in Life's Perfects Plan and couldn't wait to read her story in Life's Next Chapter. She is strong, sassy, brilliant, caring, and loyal. Luke is DREAMY! He is a tall strong hot man. He is a hero who served in the army and now does construction. His tattoo'd body is just icing on the cake. The supporting characters were great in this one and some of them were of the four legged variety! This is definitely one to not only add to your TBR but to actually read! ~ Leslie
