Leigh Ann Lunsford has written a hit with Not Enough which is the first book in the Parker Siblings Series. There is so much depth and emotions in each of the characters and within this story and the world in which Leigh as woven. In particular the feelings and emotions behind Brielle, the one person who has never felt enough.
I loved Brielle from the very beginning, she is smart, sassy, loving, funny and gorgeous but that is not how she sees herself. It is not how everyone else sees her. All she sees is the girl who is never enough. Not enough for anyone to ever truly love and accept who she is. Not even her parents chose her. Brielle and her siblings were raised by their grandparents because of something that happened in Brielle’s past. Nobody knows her secret except for her best friend Cooper who helped her escape that terrible night. Brielle hides her secrets well enough that her family doesn’t see. That is until one man catches her eye. With him she can’t hide anything and decides that he just might be the man to save her. But in the end will he be the one to truly break her, giving credence to the fact she is not enough?
Colby James needed a change and decided to come to town to start a business with his cousin, Tyler. Since he being in town Colby has been spending time with the Parker siblings, as Tyler is dating Addy. When Colby sets eyes on Brielle he finds himself attracted to her, from just one look he finds himself instantly wanting to protect her, to find out everything about this girl. Colby just melts your heart when she shows Brielle that she is enough, enough for him. But heartache finds it’s way to them and Brielle’s heart is ripped from her and torn to shreds.
This is crazy, funny and loving family that are there for one another no matter what and their antics will keep you wanting more. There is also overwhelming heartache and sadness that will have you sobbing right along with them which made me want to slap the hell out of Colby and hang on to Brielle and never let her go..
