Out of Goodbyes is the second book in Gen Ryan’s Hopelessly Devoted series. It picks up immediately after When We Were Young with Parker showing up on Rainey’s doorstep to beg for another chance. Ms. Ryan is an excellent writer who uses alternating points of view to take the reader inside the head of her characters. When We Were Young is Rainey deciding what is the best decision to go back to Parker or more forward with Levi.

Rainey put her heart and soul into her marriage with Parker. Parker

You MUST read When We Were Young first! This story picks up right where the cliffhanger left off at. It’s a novella, so it’s a quick read and an emotional story.

After the cliffhanger from WWWY, I was dying to know who Rainey would end up with. And she did the best thing, she chose herself. She decided she was putting herself and her happiness first. Which is a lesson I think lots of people need to learn, especially while going through heartbreak.

Another great story from Gen Ryan!! I have absol

Gen Ryan is brilliant, let me start of by saying that. This series leaves me at a loss for words to adequately describe how I feel about Out of Goodbyes. I loved everything about it. Rainey deserves to be happy and the way that Gen has written this following on from When We Were Young was perfect. I am happy with the direction that this story took. There are a lot of raw emotion within this book which Gen captures beautifully. I look forward to the next book in the series.

4 1/2 Stars!

Out of Goodbyes is book two in the Hopelessly Devoted. It can not be read as a standalone, you must read When We Were Young first. This one picks up where the last one left off. Rainey is just ready to move on from Parker when he shows back up. My heart went out to Rainey. She's worked so hard to get to where is she. I was kind of mad at Parker for coming back. I really liked Levi and was so hoping that Levi would be the one for Rainey. Levi has had he relationship issues too. He's v

I absolutely loved this second part in the series. Just went Book one tore me up, the second one filled my heart. Rainey has finally realized that she’s worth finding her own happiness. After everything Parker and her had been through.
While struggling with depression and a life changing event.
Levi is an absolutely amazing man. Having gone through so much and losing what he thought was his true love to someone else. He tries to move on without much success. Until now.

Out of Goodbyes is second in the series so be sure to read book one so you can meet the characters and not be confused. I’m happy with the way Rainey’s story ended. Out of Goodbyes is a sweet read of her finally surrendering to herself and allowing her to just be happy. I enjoyed it and look forward to the next in the series.

Holy Lord, I loved this book! Levi is everything!
I loved the all encompassing love Gen captured here. I also loved how it covered all the bad stuff too. Life isn’t perfect and neither is any of the relationships featured, but I love how it was all handled here.
This was a great end to the duo and I canNOT wait for the next two books!

This picks up where the other one left off with another very emotional read that is a big roller-coaster ride as much as the first one was. This is a very talented author that really knows how to pull on your heart strings. We start off with Parker going to Rainey’s home and begging for another chance, he will do anything to get back the woman he loves. Will Rainey’s give that chance and will Parker be willing to give her what she needs or could there be someone else putting a tailspin on the ou ...more

This is the second book in the series and book one, When We Were Young, needs to be read first.
Rainey Matthews had her life change on her in an instant and all her dreams were gone when her husband, Parker Matthews, said their marriage was over. Yet she slowly began to find herself again with the help of Levi Hayes.
But now Parker has changed his mind and wants Rainey back. Will she allow him a second chance like she has always done or will she find that it is time to live for herself?

A beautifully emotional realistic look at relationships. I wanted another story but that doesn't mean this isn't perfect as is.

She is finally getting her life together and here he comes. So typical, isn't it. Just as you clear your mind and move on here they come back to remind you. There is so much going on in this story and Rainey is feeling it all. It's up to her to decide if there is anything left. While Rainey battles with her decisions things are happening that make the decision easier. How do you choose between the man who has helped you heal and the one that you thought was your soul mate and lifelong partner. R ...more

This was such a great book and really addresses what so many women go through or have gone through.

I loved how Rainey finally followed her own path and did what was right for her - independent of both Parker and Levi. I loved her friendship with Ava and how when Rainey needed her the most she showed up to support her with everything.

I was amazed at how much Parker grew up in this book and changed. I loved seeing the change.

Levi was such a great guy and really truly listened to Rainey and was aw

Out of Goodbyes is so well written you will need a box of Kleenex by your side for the sheer emotional weight of this story. Gen Ryan has written the perfect ending to When We Were Young. Rainey has a decision to make about her own happiness and she makes the right one for the first time in a long time she picks her. Her happiness, her future and her joy. That is the hardest decision for most of us to make. You have to give past whatever negative thoughts and forces are in your life to find happ ...more

Wow the conclusion to Rainey’s story had me in tears in some of it she had the guy that she has been in love with since she was 16 back In her life than she had Levi! We got to see some of Levi’s background of why his heart was broke but can Rainey fix it, such an amazing book and I can’t wait to read Parker’s book!

This is another emotionally charged story that had on a rollercoaster of emotions. This is a story about finding one’s self, happiness, and love. The characters are complex, and believable. I highly recommend reading the first book, When We Were Young, before reading this story. This book picks up right after the events of the first book.

This was a great book. It was easy to follow and the storyline was perfect. I loved Rainey and how she came through depression. Although I wanted a different ending for her it was perfect the way it was. I can't wait to read the next book about Parks.

Rainey and Levi were one of my favorite fictional couples so far in 2018. Their story was full of funny, beautiful, heartbreaking, and happy moments. I was sad to get to the end of their story because I never wanted it to end. I loved them both.
