Lately, life definitely isn't how I envisioned it. I had it all. The house, the job, the husband. Until one day, I didn't. I don't know when exactly things started to change between us, only that it did, and in a big way. So much so, I found myself standing before a judge and signing off on the end of my marriage. To the only man I've ever loved.

Now, he's back, fighti

I think these two authors mixed their talent of writing together perfectly.
This is a love story like no other but most of all it's about second chances. Winnie and Harrison had lost their way in their marriage but signing a piece a paper didnt stop their love. Harrison was determined to show the love of his life he was ready to reclaim his wife no matter what. Nothing worth having is easy to come by but these two are ready so show Love can win above all else. Such a beautiful and touching story

This book was fantastic!! The writing was seamless. You couldn’t tell where one ended and the other began. I cried sad and happy, heartfelt tears! Harrison will make you swoon! His love for Gwen was beautiful! Get ready for some twists and turns and lots of love! Kaylee Ryan and Lacey Black definitely need to collaborate again!

Heartfelt. Unique. Insightful. Real. Just a few words that come to mind when I think of It's Not Over. As a married woman, I felt this one in my gut. Kaylee and Lacey's writing blends so beautifully. I literally read this one in 2 hours. I couldn't put it down. Let me just say, every woman would kill for a man like Harrison to fight for them. While dreamy, it is not an unrealistic story. I really can't say enough about this one. You will regret NOT reading this one.

Gwen and Harrison are married and going through a divorce at the beginning of this title. In fact, the start of the story is the end of their marriage. Except, it's a marriage that both of them want and a divorce that they are only agreeing to because they think it's what the other wants.

And, when you follow your ex-wife home after the divorce meeting to get a couple of shirts? Well, sometimes things happen, and then other things happen.

Amazing! Totally Swoon-worthy!
Incredible, fantastic read!

This book tugged at all my heartstrings. From the very first page I was invested. I needed to see this amazing couple get there happily-ever-after. They deserved it so much!

Harrison and Winnie were happily married at one time. But lately, Harrison let his job come first. He didn't mean to, though. All Harrison wanted was to create a future for him and his precious Winnie. They had made so many dreams over the decade they were together. And

Kaylee Ryan and Lacey Black have teamed up to deliver one second chance romance that is kindle meltworthy. Ryan and Black are two of my most favorite romance authors. Both are known for delivering the ultimate guy that you can’t help but falling hard and fast for. By combining their efforts, these two ensured for one fabulous love story that you just can’t put down.

I really liked this book and honestly couldn't tell that it was written by two different authors! I love anything Lacey Black and have read and loved quite a bit of Kaylee's books so I was excited to know that they were collaborating!

Kaylee Ryan and Lacey Black finally gave us all what we wanted and co-wrote a story together, and it couldn’t be better!

It’s not over is a second chance romance and Winnie and Harrison are very recently divorced, but with the sparks between these two, even after the divorce decide to have one more night together, little did they know fate had something else in mind for this couple.

It’s Not Over is the first novel by the duo of Lacey Black and Kaylee Ryan. I have read every word Lacey has written and loved each and every one of them. And this is actually the first piece of work I have read by Kaylee and I know it won’t be my last. Together, these two have made co-writing look easy, from the reader’s point of view. They blended perfectly. I don’t want to spoil anything so I will try to make this quick.

When your two favorite authors say “hey we are writing a book together”, you jump for joy and wait anxiously for it to release. The fact that I got the chance to read this as an ARC just made my day. But seriously this book was everything!!! I’m a huge fan of Kaylee’s books. She writes with fierce family connections whether that is the one her characters are born into or the one they create with f

I've read many of Kaylee Ryan's published books but this is my introduction to Lacey Black. It's Not Over is their first co-authored novel and their writing styles blended well together.

The main characters are Gwen (aka Winnie) and Harrison. Winnie is a kind and caring woman. Harrison is a faithful and very protective (ex)husband. They love each other but seem to have lost their way and find themselves signing on the dotted lines of their divorce papers.

Almost immediately, Harris

It's Not Over is by far, one of the best collaborations of all time. I have read from both authors before, and with this mashup, I could not tell who wrote what, that is how well this story flowed. It's Not Over is a second-chance romance at it's best. I loved how this duo of authors created such an intense, yet all consuming story about the ups and downs of what a real marriage entails. It's not easy, but when you love someone, it is not a hardship. These authors gave such great detail within t ...more

Kaylee Ryan and Lacey Black are my modern day Emily and Charlotte Bronte Sisters - Their collaboration together in 'It's Not Over' is truly special!

This was a sweet second chance romance with a good dose of steam.

Gwen and Harrison have lost their way in their marriage. Hours after signing divorce papers, they end up in bed together. Here’s where I started to struggle a bit. I couldn’t figure out why they divorced in the first place. I mean, I know that they’ve hit a bump or two, but they are still passionately in love. And they aren’t shy about expressing it to e

After reading the blurb, I knew I had to get my hands on this book. I love a good grovel, and what's better than a husband who agrees to a divorce he doesn't want, and then goes full force at getting his wife back. This book checked all my boxes.

Harrison was the perfect possessive and protective man I was hoping he would be. He never took no for an answer but did it in a way that was not controlling or demeaning. Harrison loves Winnie in a fierce, all-consuming way. His

Finally the day has come that my two favorite authors collaborated on a book. Reading them both, I wondered if I would be able to figure out who wrote what, but it was so seamless there were times I forgot there were two authors. Winnie and Harrison are such a beautiful couple and I love that the story follows a different arc than any other that I’ve read before. It was definitely a new experience and I had no idea where it was going to go. The secondary characters are also very interesting. As ...more

It's Not Over is a wonderful and heartfelt second chance love story. I have read these two authors separately, and have loved and enjoyed their stories and characters. Needless to say, I was excited when I heard they were doing this joint collaboration. This story was easy reading, full of emotion and had an effortless flow.

Harrison and Gwyn have a strong love and that’s evident from page one even when they aren’t sure how to make their marriage work. Once these two start to focus on all of the

Harrison and Gwen met in college and followed the typical path of getting married and starting their careers, but throughout all that, things got a little lost by the wayside and forgotten and they somewhat drifted apart. With Gwen thinking that the solution was a divorce and Harrison just going along thinking it is a phase, after signing the papers they have one last night of passion.

With a cover like this, and the fact that Kaylee Ryan wrote it, there was little chance I was not going to love this book. Lacey Black is a new author for me so I was excited to read this collaboration with Kaylee Ryan.

It's Not Over is a fierce love story. It's a story of a second chances and fighting for what is most important. It's about realizing what matters and ensuring nothing gets in your way from getting or keeping it...again. swoon. Harrison was everything.

I have read these two authors individually over the years and enjoyed each book I read. This book is the perfect mixture of their writing and I absolutely loved it!

Harrison and Gwen are two people in love that experience what a lot of married couples do. A failure in communication. Once that breaks down both have to fight to fix it but when that doesn’t happen you find yourself in a scenario like they do.

You can feel the love between Gwen and Harrison from page 1. You will be rooting for them t

We start off with Harrison, he and his wife Winnie (Gwen but only he calls her Winnie) have been together since their sophomore year of college. They were joined at the hip, even though their studies and schedules were different they made it work.

This story begins with the end, and then continues with the real life struggles we all face in our relationships and friendships. There is no exaggeration, or fantasy feelings, it's just real.

This is not my first read by either author, I am familiar with their writing styles. That said, let’s jump right in because not only is the cover GORGEOUS but this story is a bit different than your usual!
Not your usual because it kind of starts from the end...
