Unchosen (Chosen Series #2) by Alisa Mullen
Unchosen: Book #2 The Chosen Series
Lizzie O’Malley is back with a purpose in life. Still flighty and unpredictable, she knows that loving and losing Teagan Gallagher has changed her life forever. As she navigates her new life in Boston as a full time working mother, she promises herself she will never fall in love again.
But can she keep that promise after meeting Nick Sawyer, the gorgeous Texan who has fallen for her?
Follow Lizzie to Ireland where she struggles with tragedy and rediscovers herself all over again.
Wow okay. So Unchosen, the second in this series, picks up close to where the first book ended. Lizzie has her son and has an amazing job as a financial broker (yeah that I don't buy that so much, but eh whatever). She is eating lunch one day and meets Nick. Beautiful, sweet Nick. Lizzie has told herself she will never fall in love again. After horrible Teagan she just can't do it again. She has her son and her job and her family and that is enough.
When Nick joins her for lunch they are kind of awkward at times, but you can see he is interested. They start hanging out as friends, but you can tell they both want more. Lizzie is too afraid to give more, she hasn't really dealt with Teagan leaving even though it has been over a year since he left, and so she is not ready for a new relationship. Nick and Lizzie were rocky at times, but he was always there for her. When heartbreaking things happen late in the book Nick is there for her. Man they were so sweet together. I did a little cheer when they finally, finally got together.
Yes there is some drama and at one point I was like really? Again? But at least it was better this time. The epilogue sets up the next book, from Sam's point of view, but really I just hope it doesn't work. I know Lizzie is the weak link in this relationship. When she finds out who Nick is and where he comes from she is not very happy as she doesn't think she fits into his lifestyle. It is obvious that he doesn't care and just wants to be with her so hopefully his love for her will stop there from being lots of drama rama. We shall see. Even if it is full of drama I know they can work it out. I mean they are meant to be! They have to be together forever. Alright, off to read book three!
