Happy Sunday! I think I’m going to devote Sunday’s to throwback reviews aka books I loved before bookstagram + the blog. Abby Jimenez is an auto-buy author for me, I literally didn’t even read the summary before buying Life’s Too Short because I LOVED Happy Ever After Playlist. Also, if you didn’t know this already there’s an actually playlist and it is fantastic.
In saying this, I read this book a year ago and I was a little hazy on some of the finer details so of course, I re-read the book…It was the only logical option. And I still loved it, I did find a few things minorly problematic but overall a solid read and I’m still suggesting everyone read this series.
Summary: Two years after losing her fiancé, Sloan Monroe still can’t seem to get her life back on track. But one trouble-making pup with a “take me home” look in his eyes is about to change everything. With her new pet by her side, Sloan finally starts to feel more like herself. Then, after weeks of unanswered texts, Tucker’s owner reaches out. He’s a musician on tour in Australia. And bottom line: He wants Tucker back.
Well, Sloan’s not about to give up her dog without a fight. As their flirty texts turn into long calls, Sloan can’t deny a connection. There’s no telling what could happen when they meet in person. The question is: With his music career on the rise, how long will Jason really stick around? And is it possible for Sloan to survive another heartbreak?
Things I loved: Tucker is the real star of this book. Witty banter mixed with depth of processing loss. Jason accepted Sloan who she was in her loss of Brandon. Foodie moments. I loved how close Jason was to his family and how they welcomed Sloan with open arms. Kristen per usual killed the humor. I was so invested in them by the end and the ending really did it for me!
Things I didn’t care for: The whole leaving your life for a guy thing…it’s a bit problematic but also I get it. Jason could have been more upfront with some things.
