Second chances...

Does one take it?

Avery Poindexter never expected to take another chance at love...actually, she had planned on remaining invisible for the rest of her life.
Growing up in a family that would put Cinderella's to shame, Avery Poindexter watched as her sister withstood years of abuse while she was sidelined to the staff quarters unable to fight for her own.

However, she had a plan...

On her eighteenth birthday, with the signed paperwork from her malicious grandmother, Avery and her sister make their escape and never look back, but Avery should have guessed that her change in luck was too good to be true.

After unexpected deaths, Avery finds herself simply passing through life....alone.

Banishing herself to a life of loneliness and solitude, Avery jumps at the chance to start over somewhere new: Carson, North Carolina. As Avery adjusts to a new beginning and a new life, she's thrown a curve ball she wasn't expecting - him - a man that has his own secrets and demons shrouded in the darkness of his past. He also happens to be one of her bosses and Avery finds herself drawn to him in a way she never anticipated, torn between wanting to wrap him in her arms and push him away in hopes to save his life.

Logan doesn't trust women. Period. They play on your emotional vulnerability and use you if they can. They chew you up and spit you out. He should know; his family has a long history of lying, cheating, manipulating, and leaving women.

Growing up in a trailer park, kicking post to his dad's vicious temper, Logan made a vow to make something of himself. Determination and scholarships got him through medical school; women got him through lonely nights.

A one-night stand cut short exposes Logan to a mysterious woman that flips his world upside down. Logan never expected to meet her; the one that would make him question everything. Undeterred by her need to keep him at an arm's length, he goes against everything he believes in the quest to prove that they're worth fighting for.

Will Logan be able to breathe life back into Avery's heart and offer her the things she Love? Or will their devastating pasts force them apart?

Growing up, Renee always found a way to pursue her creativity. It began by watching endless runs of White Christmas- yes even in the summer – and learning every word and dance from the movie.

After marrying the man of her dreams and moving from her hometown she sought out a different artistic outlet – writing.

To say that Renee is a romance addict would be an understatement. When she isn’t chasing her toddler around the house, working her day job, or writing, she jumps head first into a romance novel.

Here Is My Review Of Coming Alive:

After too many heartbreaking losses in her life Avery Poindexter has taken more of a sheltered approach to life as of late, mainly because she has this fear that every time she lets someone in, they are destined to leave her in death. But little by little her friends are starting to pull her out of her protective little bubble, and getting her to rejoin the outside world again, even convincing her to move to a new town for a fresh start. She is hoping her new start, in a new town, will give her a chance to heal without the constant reminders of her past at every turn, and give her a chance to rebuild a new life for herself... what she doesn't expect it to give her is love!

After a bad history with women Logan has developed a mistrust for them that runs deep, he has no trouble spending the night with them, but that is where is ends. No strings, relationships, feelings, or attachments, unless there sex related of course, one night of fun and then the good doctor is gone. But when he meets the alluring new nurse at his office, his little plan takes a hit, she is beautiful, and has this special way of pulling him into her orbit. And before long he is doing everything he can to be near her, even if it goes against everything he believes in...

The moment I started this heart-wrenching read I was completely hooked, it grabbed a hold of me and had me flying through the pages, in search of what I hoped to be a well deserved happily ever after for Avery, and I have to say I am happy with what I found. This well crafted story line was engaging, passionate, and packed with raw emotion that literally took my breath away! It's one of those reads that will hit you deep, and have you feeling the punch intended behind every word printed on the page, and is sure to linger in your thoughts long after the last page is turned!! I highly recommend you give this read a try, it is sure to take you on one truly exceptional literary escape, and renew your faith in happily ever afters!!
