This is the second book in the series and thus time we get Alexa and Tappers story.

After Alexa met him again at the end of book one and she can’t stop thinking about him and what might have been. For Tapper he’s struggling to adjust to the changes in his life and he’s bitter about how things ended between them.

I liked watching Alexa work through all her hang ups and finally let someone in. Tapper coming to terms with his limitations was easy for me to identify with for personal reasons. There

I enjoyed this second book in the NYC Series, A Beautiful Acceptance; it is an emotional and hopeful story. It’s Tapper and Alexa’s story, which also continues the love story between Prescott and Ki. It is tangled and somewhat tense, as well as funny and sweet, with great characters that I love.

After Alexa Tanner gets some unexpected worrisome information it gets a little twisted. I feel like she just figured out what she wanted with Tapper and then so many surprises popped up threatening their

I have read a number of Alora Kate’s books and they all have one common thread, once I start them I can’t put them down until I’ve read to the last page! A Beautiful Acceptance, book two in her NYC series, is no different. We went from Ki and Prescot’s story in book 1 to Alexa and Tanner’s story in this book.
A Beautiful Acceptance was a tough read for me and yet it was an utter joy. In some respects I cannot relate to someone like Alexa. Alexa is the kind of woman who can enter a room and all

A Beautiful Acceptance is where we get Alexa's story with Tapper Low. They run into each other in A Beautiful Heartbreak and it sets Alexa's mind racing about him constantly. She can't get him out of her mind and she has to talk to him. Tapper wants nothing to do with her. He's currently learning how to live his new life and let go of his old life, including Alexa, although it hasn't happened in the year they've been a part.
You get all of the same characters from A Beautiful Heartbreak and get

Alexa seems more down to earth in this second novel of the series.
We meet the whole gang in book one, that was about Ki and Prescot.
This book was about Alexa and Tapper. I had an easier time connecting with Ki however Alexa comes out of her shell. Their relationship is still unique..
I wasn't sure how I would connect to Alexa diving in but she manages to surprise the reader.
Her whole life she has been trying to be something she is not, just to get her mom's attention. Her childhood was an

Really enjoyed A beautiful acceptance after reading A beautiful heartbreak I couldn't wait to get my hands on Alexa and Tappers story to see what happened for Tapper to show such anger towards the heroine and I understood the way he felt . Alexa doesn't let any one in after the things she's been through the only person she ever let break through her wall is Ki and once faced with tragedy she's starts to reevaluate her life . My heart broke for Tapper and the things he is going through such a ...more

Sometimes life knocks before it throws a curve ball your way & sometimes
it wheels by in a wheelchair. That is exactly what happens to Alexa. Can there
really be a second chance at the greatest love of your life? Or, will the challenges
of life end everything as it is just beginning? Challenges that could easily beat
any one person are thrown at them & force each of them to open up & face their
own demons...demons which neither want to admit exist. Sometimes, the best thing we can do for

As I read through this book, I was impressed with the way the emotions were described. I felt as though I was experiencing the confusion and hurt right along with Alexa and Tapper.
Their struggles were perhaps not relatable to me specifically but were described with such intensity that my empathy felt real as I watched it all unfold.
Just as in book one, coupled with the love story is a bit of action and suspense that allows the reader to have a wide variety of things to cling to as the story

~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's Review~~~~~~~~~~

I loved how this book continues on from A Beautiful Heartbreak. In this second book in the series we follow Alexa and Tapper's story all the while we still get more of Prescot and Ki's story. Alexa left Tapper a year ago and during that time his entire life changed but he never forgot her. Alexa's life is about to get very complicated and the person she is going to need is the one person she pushed and ran away from. OMG Alora Kate is

Book 2 in the NYC series, A Beautiful Acceptance, struck a deep chord with me for very personal reasons. Alora Kate nailed it with this book! The emotions that Tapper feels are spot on. A story like this could go either way, and I was overjoyed watching Alexa grow with every page.

Alora Kate just keeps getting better and better! I can’t wait for Book 3!

I received and voluntary reviewed an ARC of this book. This book was read and reviewed by Stacy Aube for Cutting Muse Blog Review.

Another work of art. Topper and Lexi have an interesting and remarkable connection. The devastation in this book will play tricks with your feelings. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

This is book two in the series. This one is Lexi’s book, and I've got to say she's my favourite! I loved Ki but Lexi I love more! She’s independent and she's made something of her life despite having a rubbish start to it. Tapper, an old flame is back in her life but after she screwed up with him originally he's doesn't want anything to do with her.

I really enjoyed this book and it had the bonus of still having Ki and Prescott from the first book!

A Beautiful Acceptance had quite a few twists
A Beautiful Acceptance is book two in the NYC series and after finishing A Beautiful Heartbreak I could not wait to get my hands on Alexa's and Tapper's story!

This was another fantastic instalment that had me engrossed from start to finish. The story flowed with effortless ease. I really enjoyed the fact that even though it is wrote with such emotive words the Author has still managed to write humorous undertones mixed with witty banter while still keeping the character's true to themselves.

we catch back up with Tapper and Alexa who featured in book one of the series.

Alexa works with Ki who we met in book one and is the other half of the private investigation team.

Alexa doesn't love? She has no time for it. She feels that if she loves them and leaves them then she can't get hurt. Which is exactly why happened with Tapper. When Tapper dared show feelings for her she upped and left.

little did either of them realise that a chance encounter bring them back together again. It isn't

A Beautiful Acceptance is book two in the NYC series. This is witty, fun Alexa's story and I loved it. The story was easy to follow and well written. It had some twists and turns that keep you guessing till the end. The characters Alexa and Tapper, were likeable and so good together. I'm so glad they got their second chance together. Loved seeing past characters too. Really excited to see what book three holds for me, as I'm realy enjoying this series.

Alexa Tanner owns a PI firm with her best friend Ki Nicolson and they also serve court papers as well. When Alexa ends up serving the grandmother of her ex-boyfriend, Tapper Low she is brought back to a past that she ran from.

Tapper Low has never gotten over Alexa. He is a former MMA fighter but when he was attacked he wound up in a wheelchair and no longer able to use his legs. He has a lot of pain from everything that has happened but is still in love with Alexa after all these years.

This is another beautifully written book by the author that again tackles some difficult subject matters but shows the beauty of true love.

Alexa did not have an easy go growing up with a mother that was more into drugs than her. She grew up having to fend for herself and that made her extremely wary of love and relationships. Yet she was able to have an amazing friendship with Ki and that showed her that she could be loved and deserved it.

Tapper was a MMA fighter and lost the use of everything
I’ve been a huge fan of Alora’s for some time now, and with every book she puts out she gets better and better! I love the fact that she just doesn’t stay with a genre that is in her comfort zone. Instead, she reaches out to twist things a little bit. For example her books, The Price We Pay, A Flaw So Beautiful and Crash.Burn.Sting. Which are all fantastic books and I encourage you to check them out!

I was super excited to see that she was returning to a series!!!! I love this as I love to know

A Beautiful Acceptance is the second installment for Alora Kate’s The NYC Series. It picks up from the first book A Beautiful Heartbreak but tells the story of Ki’s best friend Alexa Tanner.

As cliché as it may seem, I still enjoyed reading Alexa’s story. A typical second chance love story but for some reason, they were able to reach a part of my heart. Although it wasn’t really enough to make me cry, it still felt something. I was able to connect with the characters even though I wasn’t really

This second book in the NYC series picks up where book 1 left off and gives us Alexa's story. Much like the first book, we get some suspense and action, but the wonderful thing about this series lies in the character development. I have fallen for this odd mix of people and can't get enough of them and their interactions. Alexa and Tapper get a second chance at love and we get more details on why Alexa is so opposed to commitment as well as things from her past that she didn't even know about. ...more

A sweet adventure with twists and turns to keep you captivated until the very last page!

I LOVE this series! I love these characters and this story line!! Alora Kate has done a great job with this story! She makes you fall in love with the characters immediately and then you fall in love with the story. It was so hard to put this book down!

I have to squeeze in reading between classes, kids, and work and it was hard to do that with this book because I just wanted to keep reading and forget about

Loved this story even more than the first in the series. This is Alexa and Tappers story. It took a while for me to warm up to Alexa, to me she was standoffish and not likeable, but you get to see why she is like she is, and you peel back layers and you start to understand her. I loved Tapper from the beginning, I don't know what it was, but yeah, he is pretty awesome. You get to revisit the characters from book one, and I always like that. Alora Kate has a writing style that just makes you fall ...more
