Blog Tour -- Finding Forever by L.L. Collins ~V~

Lacey Russell has had enough heartbreak and loss for one lifetime. Turning tragedy into motivation, she becomes a veterinarian to honor her mother’s memory. She knows the path her life is on and she decided long ago that falling in love is not part of that plan. She’s seen firsthand that all it does is cause sorrow and pain.
Brantley Tucker is the heir to Tucker Ranch, the most well-known ranch in all of Nashville. Much to the dismay of his parents, he doesn’t want it. It’s always been his dream to model, and he’s worked hard to achieve success. All he wants is to be supported and loved, but he wonders if that will ever happen for him.
After many chance encounters throw Lacey and Brant together, it feels like something bigger than them is at work. When Lacey gets news that shatters her entire world, can she accept the support and love that Brant offers, or will the fear of the unknown make her turn down the chance at finding her forever?

“She knew next to nothing about him, but he had make her feel more emotion than she had felt with a man in…well, forever.”

Lacey Russell has spent the last fourteen years convincing herself that being alone is okay.  That she doesn’t need anyone, nor does she want anyone because in the end it will only make things worse once the inevitable happens.  It’s a fear that cripples her completely…a fear that she will end up just like her mother. 

Doctor Lacey Russell is terrified of the Big C…and it’s only a matter of time before she realizes that she cannot be controlled by something she isn’t even sure she’s going to have.

That is, until she meets Brantley Tucker. 

In just one day, the worst day Lacey experiences every year; Brantley changes something inside of her.  And fight as she may, her mind is no match for her heart.  And the heart wants what the heart wants…sadly, the rest of her body doesn’t agree.

“Lacey, come on.  Just because your mom had cancer doesn’t mean it’s ever going to happen to you!  You can’t live your life shut off from the possibility of being happy just because there’s a threat there that you could get sick.  The threat is the same for all of us….It happens every day.  But I can’t walk around all day pushing them all away because I’m afraid to lose them.”

Brantley Tucker is one hot piece of man…and he just found his ONE.  It’s not every day that you walk into the veterinarians’ office and lock eyes with your soul mate.   Never did Brant ever think he would meet the girl of his dreams on what could’ve been the worst day of his life.  He also never anticipated her needing him the way she did, even if she tried to deny it by pushing him away. 

Somehow, he was going to get through to Doctor Lacey Russell…and there was nothing that would change that for him. Ever.

“He knew what was happening to him, and while he thought it would terrify him, it didn’t.  He was ready.  The question was, was she?”

And Lacey is going to need all the support she can get…

“Everyone is put in your life for a reason, Lacey.  He’s a good man.  Stop shutting people out.  When people love you, you have to let them.”

Wow.  Once again I am floored by Collins ability to pull me in, rip my heart out, and put it all back together again.  I can honestly say, Lacey and Brantley’s story pulled at every single heartstring.  I am seriously dehydrated from all of the tears I shed reading this book…

It was fabulous.  And I don’t use that word lightly when it comes to the written word, especially later in a series.  Usually by this time, you figure you’ve experienced everything you possibly could with the characters.  Even meeting new ones you think it could very much carry the same nuances from previous tales; nope, not this one.  This book gripped me from page one, had me sobbing intermittently along the way and damn near gave me a heart attack around 71%.  That’s when I knew this would a 5-star read.  There are very few people that can “humpty-dumpty” me and Collins has done it yet again…for the 4th time in a row.  *claps hands* Brava L.L., you have successfully shared a heartbreaking story in the most beautiful way.  I look forward to any and everything you have to say next…
