BOOK 1: Skyscrapers & Camelot
Keegan was my world since I was six years old. When he walked out of my life, I was certain I would never see him again. He broke my heart, but truthfully I only have myself to blame. Now I'm looking into his incredibly beautiful blue eyes. He came back into my life as quickly as he left. Both of us have changed over the years, but I can't imagine living another day without him. My name is Aimee, and this is the story of how I lost and found my best friend and love of my life. The journey may be tough but there is no denying that Keegan, and I were destined to be together. He rescued me the day we met and had always been my prince charming. One thing I'm sure of, I'm not letting my happily ever after get away this time.
I am so in love with this modern day fairy tale romance story of childhood friends, who were 6 and 7 when they came into each others lives and form a friendship and a sort of love that would last forever.
Aimee a writer takes on a assignment for the magazine she works for and her subject is none other than her best friend Keegan James, the young man that walked out of her life and broke her heart after high school. In Skyscrapers and Camelot, the story takes you to Aimee's point of view. Aimee realizes that after seeing Keegan again her feelings for him have never changed and she is still in love with him .
Keegan James, is a wealthy bachelor and is owner to a very impressive architect firm. His encounter with Aimee is more than he expected, he knows that the day he walked away from her was his biggest mistake and she is and always has been the woman he loves.
With the characters that Mindy A. Carter has given us in this story it brings together the James brothers that have a very strong family bond, who both love Aimee, one as a sister and the other with all his being. I also enjoyed the friendship she shares with her roommate
and best friend Renee. Every character seems to play a important role and adds humor, love, anger and a glimpse of deceit. The love between Aimee and Keegan is inevitable but one person in Keegan's life will do anything to tear them apart. What secret does this person hold and how big of a part does she play in Keegan's life? The ending left me crazy and with a need to continue reading the second story Restoration and Forgiveness review for book 2 will come soon.
BOOK 2: Restoration & Forgiveness When I ran back home, I wasn’t prepared for the reminders of him everywhere I turned. I certainly never expected Keegan to follow. I thought I made myself clear - we were through. I didn’t want anything to do with him. But, he inserted himself back into my life, and there was nothing I could do. I pushed he pulled. I ran and he chased me. I cried and he wiped away the tears. He just wouldn’t give up, and the battle my head and my heart are waging, is one I don’t want to be a part of. You see my head says be strong, but my heart is saying I belong to him, and always will. What does one do when her heart can easily forgive, yet her head refuses to. Can Keegan, and I restore our fairy tale, or will our story be closed for good?
What can I say? Restoration & Forgiveness did not disappoint, it left me frustrated as a reader but did not disappoint. This is the second story in The Renovate Series and a modern day fairy tale love story of Keegan and Aimee. In Restoration & Forgiveness it picks up from the aftermath of Keegan's secrets being revealed and Aimee being needed home to take care of her father, it's also a great time for Aimee to runaway from her problems. The only problem is Keegan was not to far behind and had no intentions of giving up on her and letting her give up on him.They realize that the connection and love they have is just too strong to allow anyone to break them apart. Their future has already been written in the stars, the problem is facing the evil "witch" who seems to hold all of Keegan's manly parts.
In book one Keegan's strength and his need to always protect Aimee was evident, so I was at a loss as to why this gorgeous man that I had added to my book boyfriend list would at times find himself powerless and willing to give up. Keegan visualized this perfect fantasy to gift the woman that he loves more than life everything she ever wanted, What will he do when his dreams no longer seem a reality?
Aimee's love and commitment is tested in every way once they arrive back home. When life with Keegan is good it's really good all her dreams start falling into place and that future that they have planned for seems attainable. It takes one moment in time to have her life crashing down all around her. The emotion that Aimee felt had me in tears and seriously frustrated with Keegan. How could the night in shining armor in the story feel so defeated? This is where Aimee's love and strength comes into place and as far as Aimee can remember Keegan protected her. Will Aimee be able to stand up and fight for the man that she loves or let him walk away for good?
Restoration & Forgiveness is just a perfect read, it's that sweet forever love with the right amount of hot passion that I like in a story. The characters are so memorable and perfect that I not only fell for one male character but also Keegan's brother Kaleb, I was so happy to find that Kaleb and Reese's story will be the 3rd book Construction and Devotion.
