Still The One - Robin Wells {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY}

I am a huge fan of romance novels. Just to be able to escape to a different world where there is a guaranteed happy ending is something that I like to do every now and again.  This book seemed to fit all of my favorite things about romance novels so I was thrilled to be able to read it and review it for you!
_________
Still the One
 
After Katie Charmaine’s husband is killed in Iraq, all she has left is a closet full of his clothes, a few pictures, and fond memories.  She not only lost her love, but her last chance to have the children she’s always wanted.  Until Zack Ferguson shows up in town...with the daughter Katie gave up for adoption nearly seventeen years ago.
           
 Zack Ferguson has never forgotten Katie, or the one magical night they spend together.  Seeing her again brings up a tidal wave of emotions:  regret over the way he left her, anger at the secret she kept, and desire he hasn’t felt in years.  But he’s in town for Gracie.  Their daughter is seventeen, angry at the world and....pregnant.  She needs the love of her two parents now more than ever.  Can these three forgive the hurts of the past and open their hearts to one another?

What did I think?

I really enjoyed this story!  It is a tale of lost love, forgiveness and renewing old loves.  There are some parts that are very sad and will make you cry and then there are funny times where you are laughing out loud!  I loved the town characters and I hear that one of Robin's earlier books, Between the Sheets, is the prequel to Still The One.  I plan on reading Between The Sheets as soon as I'm done with Still The One.  Robin's ability to paint the characters in a realistic light while adding in some of the typical romance novel elements makes you not want to put this book down.  If you are a romance novel lover, this is one that you must read!

Where can you buy a copy?

Robin's books are sold at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Target and Wal-Mart.  However, Robin has agreed to give one copy of Still The One to five (5!) Giveaways and More readers!
