Book Review: The Fear of Letting Go by Sarra Cannon

A Fairhope Novel
New Adult Contemporary Romance
Released November 7, 2014

Jenna and Preston's story:
She'll have to let go of the past in order to find a love that could last a lifetime.
All I wanted when I moved to Fairhope was to disappear. I wanted to become a ghost. A stranger to everyone who knew me before, including my parents. Especially my parents. I never expected to become someone. A friend. A faithful employee. A scholar. And least of all, a lover. Love is a word I never truly understood until I moved here and witnessed it with my own eyes. My own heart.
I always believed love was a fairy tale, and now that I'm starting to fall for Fairhope's most eligible billionaire, Preston Wright, it all feels like some cruel joke. A dream I need to shake myself out of before it's too late. Before I make the same mistakes my mother made and end up right back where I started.
I know I should stay as far away from him as possible, but fate keeps pulling us back together. I've never been so afraid of something in my life. And I've never wanted someone more.
This is book 4 in the Fairhope series, but each book can be read as a stand alone.

My Review:

I have a confession.  I haven't read the other books in this series yet, so I went into this not knowing any kind of history of any of the characters...but since this could be read as a standalone, I wasn't worried that I'd be missing anything.  At first when the story starts out, it does feel like there's things I don't know, but the further into the book I got the more I was able to pick up regarding background.

Jenna's character was good, though sometimes a bit frustrating with her mentality towards those who have money.  She did feel like a strong character, though during her trip back home you could see her falter a bit.  Preston on the other hand, he's one I really liked-regardless of hearing about his actions when he was younger.  You can tell he's done a lot of growing up from when he was in high school, and he seems to have turned into a sensitive, caring and protective man-and one that I immediately added to my book boyfriend list.

The story flows along quite well and even with Jenna not quite going along the whole time, you can clearly see that she and Preston fit perfectly together, and you can't help but cheer them on.  One thing I really enjoyed were the serious, deep conversations between the two of them-I thought they added a nice, dramatic touch to the story.

4 strong stars for this totally fated couple, I'd definitely recommend this book for those who like the new adult romance genre.
