Reading any story written by Tamsyn Bester leaves me speechless and with a goofy smile, and Begin Again is no less different. I was hooked with the story from the very first page and, although, I had a hard time remembering Huntley and Grayson's story, once I did, I loved it even more!
Begin Again, with its gorgeous cover, is full of romance, forgiveness and definitely second chances. This time is the story of Brody and Demetria, Demi. They were one of those couples that had everything and thought that loving each other was enough, until they had different dreams that meant that they would have to be apart.
Begin Again tells us their story, what happened to break this sweet and loving couple and their journey to find themselves once again. But in order to start again, they have to leave the past behind and Brody and Demi's past is beyond painful.
Tamsyn Bester did a brilliant job. Once again I was so hooked into the story that I felt everything the characters felt and even worried about the possibility of them not getting their happy ending. It has to be a great story to accomplish that. And Begin Again is.
I like that the author focuses on the two main character's love story, but at the same time doesn't forget about the other characters that are very important for the story to feel real. I loved to see Huntley and Grayson again and how their "life" continued after their story in Beneath Your Beautiful.
The only warning I give to all the potential readers out there is that this book might cause a lot of feelings. You'll suffer an emotional rollercoaster that might lead to your family to think you're crazy. Because I could't stop laughing, smiling like a lunatic, crying, be angry when things seemed to go down and smile again, specially when Huntley went all "Mama-Bear" on Brody.
Begin Again is the perfect continuation to a sweet an lovable series like the Beautiful series is. You cannot help but fall madly in love with the characters and live through them their story. For all Tamsyn Bester fans, Begin Again won't disappoint you at all. And for those who haven't read any of her stories, you should start like right now 'cause one thing I know for sure: when you end the book you'll still believe in happy endings and sweet romantic relationships. And all with a goofy smile in your face!
