Thoughts:

My feelings are a little mixed on this one. It seems a little unrealistic and they don’t really seem to know each other that well when he starts talking about falling for her and not having a future without her. It really comes off more as infatuation bordering on obsession than love, at least at first. However, while it moved a little fast, it was overall very sweet and heartwarming to see Maisie find happiness after the tragedy she endured.

Bottom Line:

Begin Again is a story about surviving and finding happiness where you least expect it. It’s worth checking out.

~EXCERPT~

Abaddon’s eyes met mine, and I turned to head down the dark street toward a quieter spot, a less public place. I wasn’t sure what Abaddon had in mind, but I knew it wasn’t going to be pleasant. I didn’t want anyone to accidentally find us or to valiantly step in, trying to be a hero.

As I headed farther away from the commotion of Bourbon Street, into the darkness, I didn’t need to turn to make sure they were following me.

I could feel them.

As we got farther from safety, my radar grew more and more intense, as if it was sensing their anticipation of what was to come.

I approached a dark alleyway and figured this would be as good a place as any to do it. Only the hazy illumination of a streetlight reached here, and no doors or windows could be seen, just the back sides of two buildings.

An efficient place to die.

It was here and now. I turned to face Abaddon, startled to find him leaning down, merely an inch away.
