Review: A LONG TIME COMING by Heather Van Fleet *giveaway*
Abigail Orson has a problem. A love problem to be precise; and she
has absolutely no idea how to go about fixing it.
For years now, she has been chasing her best friend’s
brother—demanding things from him that he’s never wanted to give. For one? A
real relationship that surpasses well beyond that dreaded ‘just friends’ zone.
You see, David Anderson is her idea of perfection to a T. The one and only guy
who has ever had the ability to make her heart beat faster; make her toes curl
with the simple blink of his long, girly lashes. But David is also a recovering
amputee, and the only thing he really wants from Abigail is to be left alone.
Abigail is a fighter though, and losing the one guy who has ruined her for
every other is no longer an option.
A guy with one leg who has lost his motivation to live—to
love—to actually be a man. David believes he’s a waste of space. If only the
beautiful girl of his unattainable dreams would get that through her perfect,
blonde, stubborn head! He’s not the right guy for Abigail. He’ll never be
worthy of what she deserves. However, staying away is almost impossible,
especially when he’s just as in love with her as she is with him. But Abigail
has a life ahead of her, one that’s definitely livable without a
nineteen–year–old gimp like him holding her down. What makes her want to stick
around is beyond questionable to David’s mind.
Choices will be made. Lines will be drawn. And together,
they will face challenges that nobody saw coming. David and Abigail may have
had almost fourteen years to fall in love, but the thing is, timing and love
have never exactly worked in their favor.
It has been years in the making, and definitely A Long Time
for David and Abigail. Let’s hope they don’t screw it up before they
I adore Heather's writing, I could read it all the time. This
book took me 7 hours flat to read,I
didn't want to put it down. I read it while eating. Ha.
This book has the
perfect amount of everything between David and Abigail. They are both so
stubborn that they fight everything. As much emotion as I felt during this
book, it's just really hard to write everything.I fan-girled, cried, screamed and screeched
through out this book.
I love how Heather incorporated characters from the
first book in this series, which I loved as well! But I think Ms. Van Fleet out
did herself with this book. I have butterflies and I'm all giddy from reading.
I really can't express enough, my love for this book.
There are twists and turns that I
didn't expect, which made me fall in love with it even more! Gahh! Everyone
seriously needs to read this book and own a copy. This was seriously worth the
wait. I can say that my life is now complete. Thank you for making me an even
bigger hopeless romantic . Perfect Christmas for any reader of any age on your
Thank you for this phenomenal book, Heather, definitely worth 5
leaves!! And a huge hug!! :)
