Release Blitz & Book Review | A Little Too Late – Sarina Bowen


Sarina has teamed up again with Rebecca Yarros and Devney Perry to bring you a trilogy of standalones late this year! 


How to behave when the guy who broke your heart two thousand miles away turns up in your office:

One: Don’t drop your lucky coffee cup in shock, even though it’s been ten years.

Two: Don’t get defensive when he asks how you ended up working his family’s ski mountain… and why you kept it a secret.

Three: Give him the worst room in the resort. He deserves it for suddenly waltzing back in like he owns the place. (Which he kind of does.)

Four, five, six, seven, eight and nine: Do not kiss him in the hot tub.

Ten: Try to keep your heart intact after you break all of your rules.

Because Reed is leaving again. Hate can’t turn back into love. And it’s a little too late

Every book I have read by Sarina Bowen, I have loved! She has a way with grasping her reader’s attention and pulling them into the story. Every aspect has feeling, every high is extreme and every low is devastating. It comes as no surprise that Sarina Bowen has brought her A-Game to A Little Too Late. I honestly couldn’t put Reed and Ava’s story down! I was constantly on the edge of my seat, second guessing the outcome of this novel. Whew, I think it’s time to sit back and take a bit of a breather now.

I loved the fact that this novel took place at a ski resort, I can say with an honest heart, I haven’t read many novels with this setting. I also loved the fact, due to this being a second chance romance, we are given glimpses into Ava and Reed’s past. There were moments where I thought my heart was going to beat right out of my chest….

Another small reason why I loved this novel was not only the characters but the story itself. This story is about forgiveness and the many different ways forgiveness is brought into a persons life. You see, Reed had a great childhood with his mother, his father, his two brothers and himself. And then the unthinkable happened, Reeds mother passed away. Reed’s life changed for the worse. What was once a strong family unit, began to dismantle right before his eyes and his father started to become angry and bitter. Throughout this novel, Reed struggles with finding forgiveness. He comes back, ten years later, and finds his father has moved on, sought help with a therapist, and found a second chance at love. But Reed can’t let go of the bitter man he last knew his father to be. My heart fell to my feet every time Reed would discover something knew about his father. I loved watching the relationship morph and grow between this son and his father. So that’s one level of forgiveness.. and then we have the moment between him and Ava in college. Life was brutal for the both of them, but instead of staying and working through the trauma, Reed took the easy way out and ended things. So I loved the fact that Reed experienced both sides of forgiveness, giving and receiving. Moral of the story, time isn’t promised in life, and if there’s an ability to talk through shit and forgive you should take it.

Now let’s talk about Ava! I loved the fact that she made Reed work for her forgiveness…. OH jeeeez, there’s that F word again. But hey, it’s the truth. Here’s a woman who experienced a traumatic loss, and then soon after she experiences another at the hands of Reed. If ever there was a time to crawl on your hands and knees and beg, it was now and then.

What I love more than an epic love story, is an epic second chance love story. I think it’s the moment of redemption that really hooks me. I love the moment when a man sees the woman he loved so many years ago, and all those feelings come rushing back. And the moment of ‘wow, I f*cked up* sets in. I love witnessing the man do everything in his power to prove to his one true love that he’s in it for real and for good this time. And I love watching the iron clad wall the woman built up around her heart start to shatter and fall to the ground. And yes, I love the forgiveness aspect. And everything I just said I loved, is everything within Reed and Ava’s story. My heart loved every facet of this beautiful story. Sarina Bowen stole my heart with this one.

Bottom line, if you all love second chance romances with heart, heat, and a lot of swoon don’t hesitate to pick this one up!
