Review: Not Over You by Heather B. Moore

My rating: 4 stars / I really liked it



He left her behind. She's spent years ignoring him. But some things can never be forgotten.

Knox Prosper knows he can never go back in time and correct his mistakes, so he has to find a way to move forward, and start a new life. Become a better man, and a father, if only for his young daughter. His regrets have taught him to simplify and to focus on what’s real and important. Returning to his hometown to ride in the rodeo gives him a chance to spend time with his daughter and to continue mending bridges with the rest of his family. But what he doesn’t expect is to run into Jana Harris—the first woman he loved—the woman who faded from his life years before because Knox continued to mess up one thing after another. Someone as good and as sweet as Jana is the last person he deserves. Hope is dangerous. And hope can break his heart once again. Yet Jana might be the one person with the power to redeem his past once and for all.

My Review

I'm not a fan of the bad boy type, but am always up for a good redemption story. Knox plays the part of the cheating ex-husband in the first book, but by the second book he had started to make amends to his family, so it was gratifying to see the rest of his journey to becoming a better man. The author did a great job of making his transformation genuine and sincere, while still staying true to his personality. Knox has so many regrets, but the one person he feels wronged by is Jana. I loved their reconciliation and the revealing of unknown secrets that caused the rift between them so many years before. I think I would have struggled with being as forgiving as Jana, and I admired her compassion and understanding, without trying to excuse or justify. They have a strong chemistry which quickly reignited their romantic relationship, and they are easy together, able to be their true selves. Small-town gossip, strained family relationships, and trust come into play to challenge their happiness, and I was rooting for them to stay strong and find solutions to their challenges together. A wonderful addition to the Prosperity Ranch series! This book can easily be read on its own but I recommend reading the series in order if you can to better understand the background between Knox and his family.
