Promise of a New Beginning by Addison Cole is a beautiful and heartfelt read and I really enjoyed it.

Jack and Savannah captured my heart with their story, I loved watching them interact and struggle with the feelings being near each other brought out. Jack has been living a very closed off life, he stepped away from his family and loved ones after losing his wife and after 5 years of not allowing himself to feel having this undeniable attraction/draw to Savannah has him questioning himsel

Jack and Savannah = Perfect for each other.

They have both been hurt by past relationships but in different ways, Jack lost his wife and Savannah's ex cheated on her but they help each other heal.

They meet on a retreat run by Jack and the chemistry between them is obvious from the start even though they both try to fight it. The way Jack is with a little boy who is on the retreat is so heartwarming as he is so closed off from everyone else, including Savannah.

Once they start to heal Jack falls ha

Addison Cole has come out with another great book. Savannah has always been one of my favorite Bradens. She's a tough entertainment lawyer who was raised by her father after her mother died when she was very young. She is also the only female in her family. She has always had to be tough.

I wasn't at all surprised when she signed up for Jack Remington's survival weekend. She definitely needed to get away from the city and away from the client who had been treating her like crap for a long time. O

A Promise of a New Beginning is a very sweet and emotional read. The book made me smile and made me cry.

Savannah Braden is a strong, loyal, and caring woman. Savannah had been stuck in a bad relationship and need a reminder on just how strong she truly can be. Savannah took a step out of her comfort zone to go on the survivor camp.

Jack Remington had suffered a major life change. The once loving husband is full of grief and guilt. He lashes out to keep his walls up and people at a distance.

Jack is the survivalist running the camp, who is hiding from the pain of his wife's death. Jack has an extremely rough manner but a soft spot for a child attending the camp.

As they grate on each other's nerves their interest in each other is flamed, and one kiss is all it takes to start a wildfire between them. But can th

Jack and Savannah are just too perfect together. They're passionate people with broken hearts waiting to be mended. For Jack, Savannah is the one who leads him back to life, with those he's avoided since losing his wife. For Savannah, Jack is the perfect way to move past the latest heartbreak her on-again/off-again boyfriend has left her with. Together they learn that you need love to survive in life. I absolutely fell in love with them and you will too!

I think I found my favorite couple so far. I'm not sure what was it about Jack and Savannah that had me captivated but they held my interest for beginning to end. I couldn't help but to fall in love with Jack. He lost a huge part of his life and it was really hard to read how much he was struggling to cope with everything. Even though it all happens in a space if a week the story didn't seem fast paced. It has all the FEELS one would want in a book about second chances at love and life.

I LOVED the story of Jack and Savannah. They both come from such strong, close knit families but don't always feel the connection. Savannah goes on Jack's survivor camp to get away from everything while Jack has been using his survivor camp to hide away from the painful reality and tragedy that struck his family.

This was an incredibly emotional story. Jack Remington has lost his wife in a car accident 2 years before we meet him. He has been swallowed up by anger, guilt, and grief. He has cut himself off from family and friends - anyone who loves and cares for him. He’s so overwhelmed with feeling that he had been the cause of her death, that he can’t even be in the house they’d shared for 10 years prior. He can’t bring himself to sleep in their bed, or to go into the room they had started decorating for ...more

This was an emotional rollercoaster, I never knew from one chapter to the next which emotion the author was going to play with next.
One second, I had the biggest smile on my face and my heart was practically giddy and the wham! I could feel the tears streaming down my face even before I had the opportunity to completely take stock of the fact. I was totally swept away by this pair, they were totally consuming!

Promise of a New Beginning is where broken hearts go to heal and mend. Neither Jack or Savannah were looking for love but it sure found them. The question is, will love heal what needs to be healed?

 Jack Remington is not looking for love, at all, in anyway. He lives his life hidden away from people as much as possible living with guilt, anger and heavy grief from the loss of his wife a few years ago. His life, twisted upside down hasn’t been the same without her, and he tries his best to avoid e

Addison Cole introduced Savannah Braden to her readers when telling the story of Savannah’s brothers. I have waited to see her find her soul mate and was excited when I learned this was her story. Then I picked up the book and from the very beginning, I knew that it was going to be heartbreaking to read. Jack Remington is broken after losing his wife and there is no easy way to move past that. But Savannah is just the person to help Jack figure out how to start living again.

What a lovely story.

We have Savannah and Jack; she’s going through a rough patch, so going into this survival weekend sounds like a great way to get over her ex; and he’s pretty much constantly torturing himself for the death of his wife, so why not escape society and live alone in the woods?

Anyway, they meet at on of these survival weekends and realize what they feel for each other is much more than simple attraction.

I truly felt for Jack, the poor guy simply is surviving, whatever he’s doing
