Book Review: Down to You by Addison Kline

Title: Down to You
Author: Addison Kline
Genre: Romance


Holly Edgemont used to love celebrating Christmas, that is, until her whole world was turned upside down by an unexpected divorce from her college sweetheart Brant. This year, not only is she divorced, but the kids are going out of state with her ex Brant, leaving her utterly alone. Holly's party-girl friend Sloane tries to break her out of her frump by dragging her along to holiday parties where Holly meets cute and available Chris. But when Holly realizes that she still has feelings for Brant, she has a decision to make: Learn to trust her long time love who broke her heart, or move on for good.

Brant Edgemont is a divorced father of three, and hopelessly in love with his ex-wife, Holly. He made the biggest mistake of his life walking out two years ago. Despite his pleas to reconnect, Holly still resists him. Is it too late to rekindle their love? Or will Holly move on for good, leaving Brant himself heartbroken and alone?

Down To You is not just a romantic love story. It is a story of familial love, friendship, betrayal, redemption, and the magic that can happen at Christmas time when friends and family join together.

My Review:

** I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. **

I really enjoyed this story even though it took me a couple of chapters to get interested. I was scared at first that I was going to hate it but I was pleasantly surprised as the story moved along.

We are introduced to the female head character who was recently divorced from her husband after he did something horrible to the family. She was sending her kids away with her ex for the holidays and was sad at the thought of being alone. However, both are still in love with the other. Through the rest of the book, we learn what Brant did that ended the marriage. And will Holly and Brant rekindle their romance or finally be able to move on from each other?

** "There is no such thing as a fairy tale life." **

A very important lesson in life. There is no fairy tale life. And the sooner Holly and Brant realize it, maybe the sooner they can make the decision of where their lives and relationship is going. 

** "Romance is not a constant byproduct of love. Real love is standing by one another and supporting each other through the good times and the bad. We all make mistakes, but the important thing is that we learn from them and move onto a more positive path." **

Down to You is a heartwarming story that focuses on understanding and forgiveness.
