    Resplendent shocked me but in really good ways It started off in the past with Savannah, a teenager who has lost her parents After the terrible accident, that claimed their lives, she has to move in with her Godmother who has a daughter, Carmin, and she is the same age as Savannah They become like family sisters only there is some typical jealousy there and later we learn how that can rear it s ugly head and make people do mean, selfish things.Then we spring forward into the present where Sa Resplendent shocked me but in really good ways It started off in the past with Savannah, a teenager who has lost her parents After the terrible accident, that claimed their lives, she has to move in with her Godmother who has a daughter, Carmin, and she is the same age as Savannah They become like family sisters only there is some typical jealousy there and later we learn how that can rear it s ugly head and make people do mean, selfish things.Then we spring forward into the present where Savannah has come back to Florida to visit and get away from Boston While in Florida she runs into none other than Andres Savannah and Andres also grew up together and over the years formed a very special friendship only to turn into a love so strong 10 years down the road but not without some trials and tribulations along the way.In the beginning it was sweet revisiting their teenage years as we learned how things came to be with each and every one of them I loved Savannah she was beautiful and sweet, never wanting to hurt anyone and Andres was also sweet and caring You just knew they were meant to be together Unfortunately I had a nagging feeling about Carmin because of her jealousy towards Savannah and quite frankly I just didn t trust her.The story is told from the past and present and once I got the swing of how it was written it sucked me in There was some heartbreak and a lot to keep up with and that was what hooked me It seemed that no matter what separated Andres and Savannah their bond was so strong that it just couldn t be broken no.matter.what The author got me good with her little twist and turns and I really enjoyed this story very much What had started out sweet and endearing turned sexy and hot between Savannah and Andres and watching their relationship change was wonderful.It is a very quick read and has a best friends to lovers feel, that I recommend you check out This is the second book by MJ Abraham and it can be read as a standalone It also has an HEA 0

    4.5 starsI adored the first book in this series It was everything I love in a book I had been desperate to read this book since I finished the first one so when the author emailed me to ask if I would like to be on the Blog Tour I got really excited She did tell me that this book was very different to the first book in the series though Resplendent was so different to Happenstance I wasn t really expecting it to be as different, but it was I didn t really enjoy it as much as the first book 4.5 starsI adored the first book in this series It was everything I love in a book I had been desperate to read this book since I finished the first one so when the author emailed me to ask if I would like to be on the Blog Tour I got really excited She did tell me that this book was very different to the first book in the series though Resplendent was so different to Happenstance I wasn t really expecting it to be as different, but it was I didn t really enjoy it as much as the first book if I m honest, but it was still amazing I found the plot of this book a little hard to follow at the beginning of it I think it was maybe because some chapters went backwards in time and they didn t really have a lot of backstory as to how they related to the present After a few chapters like this I was able to understand what was going on and who was who in the story I did have to pay close attention though The plot was still amazing and it had me gripped I found it hard to put down It was written well and I thought the twists that were thrown in were unexpected and added so much to the story The twists were so amazing I especially loved the one near the end That changed the outcome of the entire story The characters were amazing Savannah was a character that I loved She had been through a lot with the main guy character and then she went through evenwith him during the course of this book She was such an easy character for me to connect with though She was strong even when she wanted to break and there was a point in this book where I didn t think that I was going to like her, but in the end I loved her She was a strong character I adored Andres He was the guy that I could tell had always had feelings for Savannah When she walked into a room he was the first one to find her It was so sweet I could completely understand why he felt the need to break things off with Savannah when they were younger He felt it was the right thing and although I think that they should have just talked about it in the long run it was the right thing to do I also loved how protective he was of her Savannah and Andres made such an amazing couple They came so far together I really enjoyed this book being told from both Savannah and Andres s point of views It made itinteresting and I enjoyed going into both of their heads I m not sure if there s going to be another book in this series with other characters, but if there is I will definitely be first in line to read it I m loving this series and I hope that there sto come from it The cover for this book is pretty different to the one for the first book, but it s a completely different story so I understand that The cover for Resplendent is stunning though Big thank you to M.J for an ARC of Resplendent and to Angie from Angie s Dreamy Reads for having me on the Blog Tour
