Reaching Rachel - Review

Review by Darcey Pickett

She is his past, seeing her through one of the most difficult times of her life is his present.  Can he move past all the hurt of the past and present to create a beautiful future?

Reaching Rachel is an emotionally charged story of Rachel, who we first meet in Living Again.  Rachel is a strong, sexy, fun loving fiery red head who has always been viewed as a wild child.  For her, this is the way it has to be.  The truth is far too painful for her to face.  Finally she lets her guard down, only to realize it was a costly mistake.

Devin is a funny, loving, and beast of a man who has been hurt in the past and uses that pain as a reminder so it never happens again.  He takes a job where he is put in the middle of his worst nightmare.

Reaching Rachel was a beautifully written story and I will not be that reviewer that spoils it for you.  The story is powerful and at times difficult to read, but the message is strong – love can conquer all.  It was wonderful to see some of my favorite people from Living Again so closely intertwined in this story, but not to the point where you will be lost because you did not read it – YET! 

This story will stay with me for a very long time.  The characters were strong and engaging.  I found myself hoping that the pages would flow forever and that this story would not come to an end.  I was sneaking into my book at every chance I could and reading well past my bed time.  Ms. Collins’s Reaching Rachel was everything I could have hoped for and well worth the missed hours of sleep.  I highly recommend Reaching Rachel to you all; I promise it will be worth a few hours of missed sleep and all the stolen moments.

LL Collins, having written two books that I adore, has climbed her way in to my top five authors and I am anxious to read what she has coming out next.  I find myself hoping it is sooner than later!
