The author has done it again.  We have the next chapters in the story of Olivia and Ash as they have become engaged and now plan their future.  Of course they can’t have an easy ride to the I do’s; they will have to overcome some hurdles that are placed in their way by both of their pasts.
Olivia realizes that just walking away from her former marriage isn’t that simple as people from the past will demand her attention and she will come face to face with the lies that went on behind her back.  She will also have to face the future of her ex-husband and be strong enough to not get sucked back into his games and disaster of a life he has created now.
Ash realizes that Olivia deserves the truth about his life but he isn’t going to succumb to that need easily.  Things in his past and in his career will be better left in the dark, if only he can keep Olivia from asking the right questions backing him into a corner that will force him to tell the truth or lose her.

 

We watch as Todd and Tommy take steps into their future with their women and the band.  Big adventures for the band will take them away from the support system they have built with Olivia and Ash.  A big event happens to the band while on the road that will either bring them together or tear them apart.
Jennifer Theriot gives us another book of watching Olivia crawl out of her middle aged box that she seemed to have been placed in and discover herself as more than a wife and mom but as a woman.  She is realizing it is okay to accept her sexual needs and explore her sensual side in life, not only to Ash but to the world in general.  She is more than what the labels she wears, she is woman and we hear her roar in this book.

 

I wasn’t at all sure about having regifted in the title until I read this book.  The author explains that in life we have to bandage our past wounds, heal the breaks in our heart and find that strength that is buried in our souls and present our new selves to the world in hopes that one person will see our beauty and worth and treasure us as the gift we were meant to be.  This is the story of Ash and Olivia, both have been through the regifting process and both realize the treasure they have been granted by having each other in their lives.
I highly recommend this series, it is full of love, redemption and the never say die attitude.  It is also proof that life doesn’t give us one shot at happiness; we just have to be aware of the doors that provide it and have the courage to step through those doors.  Well done Jennifer.
