Book Review and Giveaway -Love, Again Author: Tamara G. Cooper On Tour with Celebrate Lit


About the Book

Book:  Love, Again

Author: Tamara G. Cooper

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: September 11, 2020

Jake Barrett is devastated when he loses his wife and toddler son in a terrible, fiery accident. What made it even more painful is that an unidentified man was found in the car with them. The police suggest that his wife was having an affair. Since that horrible day two years ago, Jake has questioned everything about himself and his marriage and found no answers. He returns home to his family’s Texas ranch to try to find healing there and maybe learn to trust again.

Twice, Honor McKee was engaged to be married, and twice, she was stood up just days before the wedding. Adding to her embarrassment is the fact that she is a marriage counselor, someone who gives advice to others about love and relationships. Ashamed and deeply hurt, she loses faith in herself and her ability to choose a man willing to commit.

Although they are both wounded and disappointed in love, Jake and Honor meet and manage to stumble their way toward friendship and, quite possibly, more. But their lives are turned upside down when trust in each other is needed the most, and neither has it to give.

Will they learn that there is more to life than living in past failures, that it really is possible to find love again?

More from Tamara

When I thought of writing “Love, Again”, I wanted to find out what would happen between two very-hurt people who stumbled into the beginnings of a friendship but didn’t have the trust it took for the relationship to go any further. What would help them see their flaws? What did they need to learn to become more than the past had let them be?

I loved getting to know Jake and Honor. Without giving anything away, I walked with them through their discoveries about themselves and each other. I hope you enjoy their journey!

My Thoughts

Love, Again by  Tamara G. Cooper is the first book that I have read by this author. I enjoyed reading this Contemporary Romance book. The book is an easy read that can be completed in a few hours.  I hope to read more from this author. I enjoyed getting to know Jake and Honor. I love that they were realistic characters, with real feeling situations and not a fairytale ending.  Oh how my heart broke for Jake. I can't imagine losing my spouse and child and finding out that the spouse was having an affair. That is a tough pill to swallow. I loved how he worked through it. I also love how he knew he could return to his hometown to help heal. 
Honor McKee is a likeable character. She has had a string of bad luck with being a marriage counselor. Twice she has been left days before the wedding. Honor and Jake meet and they both are so broken. They both need each other - but there is so much hurt and pain from the past. I love the characters faith and how that tied into it also. The characters are well written, the story line is engaging and unique. I smiled, I laughed, and my heart broke in some parts. This is a great read.

  1. It sounds like this book has some bombshells right from the beginning.

  2. Thank you for sharing the review, sounds good.

  3. Connie, thank you for the wonderful review. I know what you mean about your heart breaking with Jake's heartache... I know that I've written it correctly when I cry, too. You know the one scene I'm talking about, on the porch. Every time I read that (to edit), I cried. He's such a thoughtful man, but so much in pain. I appreciate your review so much! Thank you again.
