52 Week Reading Challenge Week 2: Then, Now, Always by Mona Shroff

52 Week reading Mona Shroff 300x300 52 Week Reading Challenge Week 2: Then, Now, Always by Mona ShroffAnother week, another new book. I hope you are all finding your groove with the challenge and enjoying the process. It’s not a competition, so if you are still reading keep going.

After all, the ultimate goal is to expand your literary library and hopefully find new authors and interests along the way.

For my debut author selection I chose Then, Now, Always by Mona Shroff. This debut book from Harlequin is a second chance romance, a celebration of family, passion for life and career, and dealing with difficult challenges.

Then Now Always 189x300 52 Week Reading Challenge Week 2: Then, Now, Always by Mona ShroffSam Hutcherson fell in love and knew Maya Rao was the one. Suddenly faced with having to choose between his family’s dreams and his own, he’s forced to make a choice. An unexpected moment changes everything and he wonders what went wrong. When life presents a second chance, will he find out the truth? One flip is all he needs, will he get it?

Maya Rao vowed to live her life differently and not depend on anyone else. If only her heart could be convinced. Family influences, expectations and family traditions will influence her hopes of finding love. Baking her heart into every bite she lives with purpose, but can she truly move forward from the one man who still has her heart?

From the moment I had the pleasure of witnessing Mona Shroff see and hold her book in person, I knew this book would be special. The details the publisher took to accurately reflect the book via the cover won me over. Folks, it’s beautiful and captures so, so much.

After reading this story I have a desire to learn so much about the world Maya and Sam shared, the one Mona created, the one I want to dive into. The details were infused, rich, and full of all the things. I enjoyed the pace and development of the characters and the way Mona used dual timelines kept the story moving between the past and present with precision and ease.

If you’re looking for a love story that is every bit satisfying and will be talked about for a long time, one-click and pre-order today. I can’t wait to see what Mona brings us next. I received an ARC from Harlequin for a fair and honest review. I can’t wait to share with family and friends, I hope you will too.

1 Sweet Larger Image Final 300x300 52 Week Reading Challenge Week 2: Then, Now, Always by Mona ShroffThis sweet romance is behind closed doors with enough sweetness to put a pink blush on your cheeks and leave your heart full of joy.

Happy New Year.

I hope that 2020 is a year of hope, friendship, adventure, and success for you in achieving your goals. Taking the first step towards a goal can be difficult and challenging for many. If you find yourself unable to make a list, don’t panic. There is plenty of time to organize your list and take that first step.

No journey is the same. There are multiple paths to completing your journey and I hope that whatever road you take leads you to your final destination.

If one of those goals is to read more books, I hope you’ll join the 52 Week Reading Challenge with The Book Baristas. If you’re reading this for the first time I’m including the tools you’ll need to participate. While I’m following the list in order, feel free to tick the boxes as you wish.

I hope you’ve selected a book and are enjoying it, if not I hope you’ll share as we gather to chat in the group later this weekend.

The beauty of discussing books is that it’s subjective and everyone is going to have a unique spin on the message and meaning. For this weeks selection I decided to read Not Your Usual Boob by MK Meredith. The reason I chose this book is because many people I know are either survivors, or currently going through treatment now. I wanted to read this book and share the information to those who might find it helpful.¬† I will be reading other self-help books if time permits.
