I’m not sure what I love more Melissa Browns writing or her love of 80’s movies. I was given the gift of one of the best movie scene ever (insert one large boom box and one love sick John Cusack) in The Bouquet Toss and now I am gifted with The Breakfast Club (Sweet). Throw in a NKOTB reference and I knew that this book had “The Right Stuff”.
In the follow up to The Bouquet Toss, The Champagne Toast brings us Evan!
“Evan Maxwell and Kate Armour fell hard and fast for each other while attending college. Their once passionate and loving relationship ended when old scars eventually tore them apart. Two years after their breakup, they’re each struggling to piece together what went wrong in an attempt to move forward.
Kate, a no-nonsense bartender, must face her past while attempting to focus on her future.
Evan is stifled by his bitter heart, which threatens each and every relationship he attempts after walking away from Kate. Will life offer them a second chance at love or are old patterns simply too hard to break.”
Starting this book I knew that I would fall in love with Evan. When I was introduced to him in The Bouquet Toss I knew he would be hard to forget and boy was I right. Evan is sweet, caring, loving and attentive. Though out his relationship with Kate love grows but its not always easy.
When Kate entered the picture I knew that love was not going to be easy for these two. After denying it they both fell for each other, hard. I was drawn into this story. Melissa Brown painted a picture with her words that shows love, pain and sorrow. “Real love is the most possible thing in the world”. Now I did find myself wanting to yell at my Kindle at multiple parts! “Sweets. You couldn’t ignore me if you tried”. If everything in life could be solved via a cheesy 80’s the world would be a better place but it is never that easy.
With a mix of well written characters and a believable story line Champagne Toast holds your attention from beginning to end. Will Evan and Kate be able to fight the war that is love and come out on top…you will have to download your copy today to find out. Melissa Brown did not disappoint with this follow up and this book would be a great add to your bookshelf. For me this was a 5 star!
