I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review Silver Linings is the second novella in the Ripple Effect romance series, and it s every bit as enjoyable as Home Matters Remember poor, disillusioned Drew from the cafe toward the end of Home Matters Well, he has a staring role in Silver Linings It s Drew minus the family wealth, prestige, and trust fund Some people have to go to great lengths to find happiness, and fortunately for Drew, it s waiting for him in tiny Bridger, CO.
Eden is far and away one of the sweetest characters I ve read about She s given up so much for others, and always puts them ahead of herself I fell in love with her, desperately wanting her to find happiness She is one of those people you a I absolutely loved this book We briefly met Drew in Home Matters and we learn his story in Silver Linings When he first arrives in Bridger, Colorado, he has a string of bad luck so when he first meets Eden at the Silver Linings Assisted Living facility, he appears to be homeless Drew has given away his trust fund and is here to spend some time with his friend, Jace, who happens to be Eden s boyfriend.
There was a lot of humor in this book, which I enjoyed Drew and Eden had some funny encounters Then, when the residents of Silver Linings decided they were right for each other, it got even funnier They kept trapping them places where they would be in close contact and hinting that they were meant to be together Eden was torn She loved Jace but they didn t have a lot of passion and would go weeks without really seeing each ot I really wanted to like this one, but I had some issues with the plot that made it hard for me to connect with the love story Drew is introduced in the last book Home Matters when his character decides to give up all his wealth and start out on his own His story picks up in this one when he arrives in Bridger, CO to stay with his best friend Jace On his way there is gets in an accident and meets Eden Jace s girlfriend and they havechemistry Okay, so for the majority of the book Eden and Jace are still together although their relationship is a bitsketchy so while I wanted to root for Drew and Eden, I just couldn t get Jace out of my head Even knowing his story and what will happen in Righting a Wrong, I still just felt bad for him And while Drew and Eden didn t technically do any cheating nothingthan holding hands I was lucky enough to read an earlier draft of this book even before I d finished writing Righting a Wrong The story sucked me in from the get go, and I couldn t put it down until I d finished The characters, the fun plot, the message it was all so beautifully written I laughed, I cried, and I sighed But mostly, I smiled I loved this book, and I couldn t have asked for a better prequel to Jace s story Thank you, Kaylee Drew who we meet briefly in Home Matters gets his story in Silver Lining We meet him under much different circumstances than we did two weeks ago in Savannah Drew has cut ties with his wealthy, greedy, controlling and cold family from Denver Drew is on his own on his way to Jace s house when he hits black ice and crashes his new to him car He finds himself walking to the first place that looks like someone is home and that is Silver linings Eden works at silver linings and has made many friends with all the elderly people They are worried for Eden and her lack of social life and that Eden s boyfriend Jace has no time for her Oh and is not doing a proper job of romancing her Eden walks out to reception to see Drew in
What can I say about this story except that I loved every single minute of it Both main characters were kind and caring, and I just wanted them to be together The secondary characters were equally as endearing I mean, who doesn t love meddling old people So much fun This novella made me laugh and cry, and feel just about every emotion in between Really great read D ê Silver Linings (Ripple Effect Romance #2) ↠´ WHAT IT S ABOUTDrew Westfall wants nothingthan to forget what he had to do in the name of smart business Cutting off all ties with his parents including handing over the entire contents of his trust fund to a charity he takes off for Bridger, Colorado where his best friend has an extra room for him It doesn t take long for him to realize that his business degree won t do him much good in a town as small as Bridger, but he s broke and has nowhere else to go.
