(Renovate #2)

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.

My review for this book will be very short, not that the book is very long actually, but I don't really have many things to say.

This book was and wasn't what I was expecting, because I hoped for a short, fast, easy and lovely read, that would grip me from the first page, that will blow my mind and then I will recommend it to everyone as my new favorite fluffy read. But I didn't enjoy it so much. Yes, it is fast, easy, fluffy and romantic, but it wasn't spectacu

I have been waiting to get my hands on this book since the dramatic cliffhanger in the first that left me absolutely reeling! And once again Mindy Carter does not disappoint! Although I found it to be a little bit slow in the beginning, I was thoroughly captivated with the characters and the plot to where I couldn't put it down for anything.

Once again I completely fell in love with Aimee and Keegan, although I did hate Keegan a little bit for what went down between him and Gretchen and keeping a

When I first met Keegan, I didn’t understand the importance of having a best friend. I learned early on that friends come and go, but a true best friend is one who will be there for you through it all. I thought he was it; even through the hurt, he was always my best friend, and honestly, no one could ever replace him. He didn’t fill my mother’s absence as a friend, but became someone entirely different. He became my other half, the piece of me that always fit w

Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars!!

“I know this isn’t easy, but I’m going to keep reminding you what you are to me, and who you have always been. You are my everything; no one could mean to me what you do. As long as we live I’ll remind you that loving you is as effortless for me as breathing.”

Ever since I finished Skyscrapers & Camelot, I have been dying to get my hands on this book. I had to see what would happen next for Aimee and Keegan. And I have to tell you, Mindy A. Carter does not disappoint!

First awesome awesome awesome. so amazing. The writing is incredible. Keegan is just swoon swoon swoon. He made a mistake and pays for it everyday of his life and is still paying for it with Aimee but he is trying to show her she is his fairytale. His one and only the one he builds a castle for and gives her everything. He is willing to give up his career and world for her.

Aimee I have to say I agreed she should be mad at first but she went a wee bit to far with the riotous indignation of anger.

RESTORATION AND FORGIVENESS is the second book in the Renovate Series and concludes the love story of Keegan James and Aimee Brennan. Will there be a happy ending? Kaleb and Reese's romance also continues and holds a lot of surprises.

Nothing could have prepared me for the drama and romance in this sequel. Mindy does an extremely great job of making you feel every emotion throughout this book. You will laugh, squeal with delight, and then cry, in no special order.

Keegan is the perfect, chivalrous

This series is my first by Mindy Carter and after reading the first I was dying to get my hands on this one. I HAD to know what would happen next. Would he let her go? Would Gretchen win and get Keegan? Would Aimee and Keegan find their happily ever after finally? I can say I honestly enjoyed reading this series. I was a bit disappointed by Keegan's choices towards the end of this but I get why she wrote it this way. I still was irritated at Keegan and especially Gretchen. If I could have jumped ...more

This picked right back up from the end of the first book Skyscrapers and Camelot and sees Aimee back home.
Dealing with her father being in hospital is enough for Aimee, not only on a familial level but also on an emotional level because it gives her a reason almost to turn her back on the pain that she has suffered at Keegan’s hand, no not physically but yet again her heart has been broken by him, she needs this space and time to get her head around what has happened and to concentrate on her da

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

Restoration and Forgiveness is the second book in Mindy Carter's Renovate Series. It is the continuation of Keegan and Aimee's story. It is also their conclusion.

Aimee has gone back home to be with her father. She is also running from Keegan. Things have fallen apart in a big way and she just wants as far away from Keegan as possible. Keegan however is not giving up on Aimee He has promised her forever

You have to read Skyscrapers and Camelot before you read Restoration and Forgiveness. You will be lost and not really understand the issues in the book without reading in order. You can see my review of Skyscrapers and Camelot below.

Restoration and Forgiveness is pretty good. It was a very quick and easy read for me. You see Aimee going home to her father because he has had a heart attack. She just got flattened once again by Gretchen. I want to love Keegan. I mean for all intents and purposes

I could not wait for this book, especially after the first one ended in the cliffhanger that it did. And this was well worth the wait.

This book picks up where the first one left off, Aimee is back in Pa, tending to her father, and Keegan is plotting to get her back.

There were quite a few times Aimee frustrated me to no end. That girl is stubborn! But, unlike me, she held in there and didn't give in at the first apology. She makes him work for it. Keegan puts his heart on the line. He is the perf

I received an ARC of this book from Between The Sheets PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's release promotions.

I couldn't wait to read this book the moment I finished the first one. I think it was because of the cliffhanger at the end. Anyway, I wanted to read how Aimee and Keegan's story ended. In a way, I'm glad that they had the ending they both deserved. However, I am still not Keegan's biggest fan. I'm sorry. I know a lot of female readers are staking their claim ov

You know it's a good series when you can't be bothered to leave a review for the previous book because you just have to know what happens. I devoured this series in the span of twenty-four hours. If it hadn't been for that pesky little thing called 'sleep', I could have finished this faster. Damn those early mornings and late nights catching up to me! I digress.

Part 2 in the series is as well written as the 1st. Aimee and Keegan seem to run when they are hit with major problems and although this flight response seems crazy, in this story it works! I loved how when they return back to where it all began that they seem to be able to get to the place they need to in order to get their perspective back. You can feel the love between them and you find yourself pulling for them when the outside forces start working against them. Then add in Reese and Kaleb a ...more

After the cliffhanger the first book finished on, I couldn't wait to delve into this book and I was not dissapointed. I loved how Aimed made Keegan work hard to get her back, though he did redeem himself in the end. (can you say castle!) I hated that Keegan kept secrets from Aimee, if only he had told her sooner. Gretchen..... Ahhhhh, what a nasty, manipulative b@#*h! she was the perfect baddy! This book takes you on a roller coaster of emotions right till the end, it's a beautifully written lov ...more

After finding out truths and finding that your love has more than enough to make it last forever, Aimee realizes that no matter how much she fights the love in her heart will always win. Her heart only beats for Keegan. The fairy tale that he promises is till with in her grasp if only she stops pushing and start listening to both her heart and him.

Keegan and Aimee final story is awesome. It was very intense and with the wait to read. I am glad there was no cliff hanger however at the end we were just kind of ended when there could have been more. Gretchen is as vindictive as ever in this book. Keegan still falls for her crap till the end. It is amazing the hold she has. I am glad Aimee won out and was so strong through it all.

This is a must read and cannot wait for the next book to come out.

I LOVED this book. I am totally head over heels in love with Keegan James. Yes the man is easily fooled. I felt so bad for what that bitch Gretchen did to Keegan and Aimee, the bitch was like a starving dog going after a bone.
I think the thing I loved the best about the book was how determined Keegan was about getting Aimee not only to take him back, but to for give him as well.

Restoration & Forgiveness picks right up where Skyscrapers & Camelot ended. Carter has us turning the pages, eager to see how Keegan and Aimee with work their way back together. We see how the secrets and manipulations play out. Carter gives readers an enjoyable sweet second chance romance with her Renovate series.

Restoration picks up right where Skyscrapers left off. We catch back up with Aimee with her father as he recovers from a heart attack. She is in pain and feeling scared and alone. Even when she is assured her dad will recover, the pain from the betrayal from Keegan keeps her down. Reece checks in with her as a best friend would but also to let her know that despite her best efforts, Keegan is in town as well.

I will just keep my review short because I really am disappointed with this one. After reading the first book, I thought, “Yeah, this book is promising. I might give book 2 a chance.” I was sad with how it turned out.

There were a lot of love scenes in there that makes me cringe and I don’t exactly get the point of Aimee forgiving Keegan that fast. I mean, she got mad, Keegan went to her, explained and then she forgives. That easy???? They were adults b

I was a little let down with this book. Book one left me wanting to follow this couple to see how or if they would reach their happily ever after, but this book was rather flat and uneven.

What I Did Not Like:
Keegan went from strong and confident to ridiculously lacking, in my opinion. Yeah, yeah, he said beautiful things, but he confused me with his pulling away.

Aimee was almost like a pushover when it came to how she dealt with Gretchen regarding self, but she got some grit when it came time

The writing style and editing were good. The characters just annoyed me. The storyline was predictable, which isn't necessarily bad. I generally love modern grown up fairy tales. The H, despite his insistence to the contrary, seemed a bit naive. The h continued to keep blinders on and was weak. My questions from the first book were answered but the character flaws just seemed to compound.

Overall, I just found the characters irritated me as much as anything. But there have been other books which

I loved the first book in the series and was so excited when I was offered to review this.
Unfortunately it just didn't do it for me. Don't get me wrong, love the characters. But how many times do these guys have to run away from each other because of some stupid reason? Even the best friend in the story said it's cute the first time, but now you're just making everyone dizzy.
Too much angst for me this time.
