{Blog Tour & GIVEAWAY} Living Again by L.L. Collins



Kayley Carson thought she had it all...married to the love of her life, a great job, and a baby on the way. Then one day, her life changes forever when she loses her husband in a tragic accident. No longer sure how to navigate life after her enormous loss, Kayley clings to her newborn baby, her family, and her friends to keep herself living.

When she meets someone that challenges her belief that she's better off alone, she has to decide if she is capable of letting him in after swearing she was never going to love anyone the same way again.

She's not the only one with a painful past. He is struggling with trust issues after a previous relationship went horribly wrong. After a terrible misunderstanding brings out both of their insecurities, will the painful memories of the past keep them both from living again?


***Kleenex is a must for this book and happy tears will outweigh the sad ones***

Kayley and Alex had this fairytale romance. They really were best friends and took it to another level, which turned out perfect. Kayley found out she was pregnant and both of their lives were going to change for the better. Life had other plans for them.

They faced a tragedy that turns Kayley’s life upside down. She went from this happy person to a person who barely hung on. She did live, she was lost and broken at the same time.

Kayley had to start “Living Again” and she did that with the help of her family and friends. Life’s struggles made her stronger but it took time to get there.  At a moment in her life when she felt she may not be able to hold on, she met Ben, a pediatric ER doctor.

When Alexis was ill, he was one of the doctors who treated her. To him, it was love at first sight. He felt the “current” between him and Kayley and would do anything to get to her.

Heartbreak was a killer for anything that could have happened between Kayley and Ben but both had things that made them was to live again and start their lives again with each other.

"I understand you're scared. You lost a lot. You thought you were with the one man you were going to stay with forever and he's gone. I get that. But please, baby. Please. Give me a chance to show you he wasn't the only one that can love you."

L.L. Collins opened us up to a Whirlwind fairy love story and took us on a wonderful road. I cried with Kayley and laughed a lot with everyone. This book has you on a roller coaster but it was a ride that you couldn’t get off of. Life has so many obstacles and we were given a chance  to see how one was overcome.

Book two, Reaching Rachel, will be on Kayley’s friend and her struggle to be happy.
