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

Loved this story

I was kind of a seed to read this but I am so glad I did. It was very good. It's about a couple that are divorced but had sex on the day of the decree. I don't understand why they divorced. He truly loved her and was trying to show her that he knew he had messed up by working so much but she let it go through. And she annoyed me a lot for a couple of chapters because in reality a guy like him would be dream man material. Not once in the book, did I ever doubt his love for her. He

Winnie and Harrison

Winnie and Harrison were young and in love. They dated and got married. There business and life got in the way. Then on her 30 th birthday Winnie is in a terrible accident. Life is about to change.
This was DEFINITELY over. Over before it even began.
Spoilers ahead

Husband and wife divorced, immediately after the decree they had a last round of sex
He wants her back, she loves him but feels it's better to cut the cord
She gets into an accident and they find out she's pregnant
He decides he'll win her back, they start by dating each other to rediscover their love and the sacrifices necessary to making a marriage work

This was good but not my type of read, to me the H's need for a successful business so he could provide for his family wasn't a good

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

***4.75 Stars***

What a great love story. Harrison and Winnie met in college, married shortly after graduation and have been inseparable since then. They are now about to turn thirty but Winnie wants a divorce. Harrison made a grave error in not fighting for her. He wanted to give her what she seemed to want a divorce thinking that would make her happy, but what she really wanted was for Harrison to fight for her, for them. Harrison is absolutely sick to lose the love of his life, the only woman

3 ⭐⭐⭐ - OK decent reads.
safe - faithful - unexpected pregnancy - divorce - wannabe ow causing problems - interesting side characters - love each other
2 stars.

Nonsense drama and miscommunication do not make a good love story. And of course the heroine had to have her life in danger for the hero to get off his ass and go after 'the woman he loves.'

I thought this was going to be interesting. It starts or with a couple getting divorced, immediately regrets it, and how they find their way back to each other. All that happened, but the road to the end was boring AF!

It's Not Over is a good read. Don't think that a three star rating means it's not. I typically give 3-3.5 stars to a book I liked even though there were a few things that didn't jive with me. I would still recommend a 3 star read I just don't think it's a book I would personally read again. I am saying all this because these days there seems to be a big debate when it comes to book ratings and I wanted to clari

3.5 Stars

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.

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. blog~

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

I absolutely loved this story. A second chance at a once in a lifetime love. I couldn’t put this book down.

Winnie and Harrison never stopped loving one another but the lack of effort in their relationship caused it to crumble. Now that the divorce papers are signed, they need to find their way back to each other and to the love they share. Their connection was undeniable and their journey was captivating. I loved the way they rebuilt their life together, bit by bit throughout the 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!

I returned this book. It was not worth $3. Let me just lay that out there. I saw a post on a book IG account, read the blurb and it was intriguing enough to make me get the sample. Fine, I liked the first couple of chapters, had me in tears, so I figured ok, let's just get the damn book because I need to know how this plays out.

I have certain things that are knows as my major book pet peeves. They're pretty cut and dry, and I find that when an author doesn't commit more than one of these, I ten

"I'm honored you've chosen me for this gift. This life with you. The fact that I get to call you my wife. I get to live each day with you by my side, and this little one."

I love second chance romance with accidental pregnancy and a little bit of angst, so the beginning of "It's Not Over" was just perfect for me. From the very first page you can see how much Harrison and Gwen love each other, so reading about what led them to decide to divorce was heart breaking.

Decent marriage in trouble book, but it wasn't very believable. The reason for the split was stupid considering their love for each other.

Overall an okay story, but nothing I'd read again.

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 made a BIG mistake and he's ready to make it right. Letting Winnie walk away without a fight wasn't what he had planned for their life. Now it's his time to show her she's his number one priority.

I loved this story about second-chances and showing the love of your life they are it for you. Harrison and Winnie's story was heartbreaking. Love was never the problem and so Harrison had is work cut out for him to gain back the trust lost leading to their separation.

But life gets in the way
Sissy's Romance Book Review
It's Not Over by Kaylee Ryan is book One in the Fair Lakes Series. This is the story of Harrison and Gwen/Winnie. This book starts with the ending of their marriage. We learn that they both are still in love with the other but work, time and thinking this is what the other wanted took them to this point. Gwen and Harrison were College Sweethearts and fell in love almost immediately. They had a good marriage until Harrison started working long hours and forgetting things like her birthday.

I absolutely loved this read and started reading it again already. I loved the premise of this story and felt it was an original premise (at least to me). THe authors did a fantastic job of developing the characters and their story that had my heart and feels completely invested in this couple.

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!
Ok the book: The character development in this novel was really great! Harrison was my favorite and I enjoyed his point of view more than I liked Winnie's. I felt that Winnie could have used a little bit more depth but overall they were both great characters! The l

harisson and gwen never stopped loving each other. falling out of love wasn’t the reason they got a divorce. it was a heartfelt story of two people who were still irrevocably in love with each other but couldn’t seem to work it out. they thought that separation and divorce were what the other person wanted but that’s far from the truth.

the couple’s really cute, and their love for each other is overwhelming. when gwen found out that they were going to be parents, she was at a lost. once harisson
