True Abandon by Jeannine Colette • FMR REVIEW


Trish Hogan's life was destroyed when she gave her trust to her high school boyfriend, Jackson, and he ripped it away, changing the course of her life.
A decade later she’s living in Manhattan -- she has a roommate, a steady boyfriend and a career. When a hurricane puts the city on lock down, Trish gets a message she never thought she’d receive: Jackson is dying and alone. In a city of millions, she is the only person who can sit by his side.
Jackson Davis was once the golden child of a senator who went against his father’s plans and became a musician. Tatted up and broken, he wakes up in a hospital only to see Trish -- the one person he needs to atone his sins to -- standing before him. He will recover from his injuries, but not from the pain he caused in the past.
Trapped by the storm, they embark on a night of reckoning that has one running away to Hawaii and the other following in her steps. As the victim becomes the villain, the two are forced to face the past, live in the present and find a way to navigate into the future.
True Abandon is a second chance romance and the fifth installment in the Abandon Collection – a series of STAND ALONE novels about dynamic heroines who abandon their reality in order to discover themselves . . . and love along the way. Each book contains a new couple, exciting new city and rose of a different color.


Review by Tati:

I was so torn about this story in the beginning. I had mixed feelings about the heroine, but yet kind of understood why the hero was acting the way he was. It was all twisted and honestly, I had to take a break from it and read something else before finishing. But once I started back reading True Abandon, it's like everything clicked into place. I was suddenly sucked in and had a fresh new take on it. Once the heroine found her "home" that spoke to her in calming ways that others hadn't, she relaxed and really found a new side to herself. Then the hero comes back into the picture, and while he Way of going about things was wrong to begin with, he soon saw the error in his ways and put a new spin on his approach. A second chance story that really found both characters growing and maturing in ways that were needed, this story brought much growth, change, and even truth that was inevitable for this outcome.
