Review Tour- Accepting The Fall by Meg Harding

Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK
Length: 61,000 words

Cover: Black Jazz Design

Confronting the past is never easy.
Cole Whitaker is happy. He has the job and boyfriend he always wanted. His heart’s in no danger of being broken, and he can’t ask for more from life. As a kindergarten teacher, he sees it all; however, one troublesome student has him reaching out to the parent, wanting to help. There’s something about Savanah that tugs at his heartstrings.
He never expected her father.
Zander Brooks hasn’t had an easy life, and he’s made some mistakes. Freshly retired from the military and working as a firefighter, Zander thought he’d left Cole in the rearview mirror. He’s not expecting him to appear in St. Petersburg, Florida, of all places, teaching his daughter’s kindergarten class. Suddenly, his biggest mistake is being shoved in his face.
This is Zander’s chance to close a door he’d never fully shut, but time with his former flame might change his mind.

Wendy's Review:
Oh man I wanted so much to love this book, I think second-chance books are one of my favorites, but something didn't click with me with this book. The writing was really good, this was my first Meg Harding book. I yo-yo'd back and forth with my like for Cole, on one hand he was such a sweet character who cared about everyone and animals. On the other hand he had too much internal dialogue going on about what he thought of Zander and pretty much everything else. Then we get to Savannah, while some of her actions were funny, I think her character actually took over the book. Cole and Zander were side characters to her most of the time. Zander, his internal dialogue was just as bad as Cole's. The author did a good job describing how and why he felt the way he did, explained his actions and explained the backstory but it took almost 80% of the book to get there. While I understand I might be in the minority with my review I do want to make it clear, I did like the book, I just did not love it like I hoped I would.
