Not So Far (Love Grows series Book 3) by Renee Regent

I really wanted to savor this book and and tried to read it a bit slower than I normally do. There was something about Audrey and her life that called to me and I felt a connection. We really don’t have much in common and I haven’t been able to figure it out.

Silas made his mistakes but when he finds himself back home after almost twenty years he decides to meet up with someone from his past. He has no idea what to expect, but what he does find out is beyond even a wild thought.

I really liked the way Audrey and Silas were together, could have been their age or the fact that they have learned how precious everything is.

I hope to see more of this series. I have really enjoyed each of the books and hope to enjoy more.

Second chance romances are my favorite and this was no exception. Audrey and Silas had a crazy summer and then Silas left abruptly and Audrey was heart broken. 18 years later and Silas is back in town for a funeral and decides to try and find her again.
While I understand it’s a book and an escape from reality, this just happened WAY too fast especially with kids involved. That honestly is my only negative take away from this. Answers are finally given for all of the past they couldn’t say back then and it ends beautifully.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not So Far is the 3rd book in the Love Grows series by Renee Regent. I have read the other 2 books before this and they were great. This book did not disappoint. The story follows Silas and Audrey, two people who dated one summer in high school, and haven’t spoken for 18 years. Fate seems to have brought them back together, but they both need to own up to their secrets, in order to move on. Fate can be a tricky thing, but so can love. Is it time to lay everything on the table and see where they stand? He split town without so much as a warning. How will things unfold? Read to find out. This could be a stand alone, but I highly recommend all 3 in order.

Not So Far is the 3rd book in the Love Grows series by Renee Regent. It is the first book I read in the series, and the first by this author. It can be read as a stand alone, and I enjoyed it. It is a sweet romance about fate, love and second chances. The story is well written, and the characters are solid. It is predictable, but I still enjoyed reading it and would like to go back and read book 1 and 2.

This is a go-to author for me so it was no brainer that I picked up book 3 in the Love Grows Series By Renee Regent.

I absolutely loved this read, and it was made even better by the fact I had read the two previous reads in this series, which I highly recommend you do as you wouldn’t want to miss out on this author’s incredible writing style, epic storyline and brilliant characters.
This was a captivating read from the get-go, I was hooked on Audrey’s story and couldn’t wait to find out more!
This is a second chance read that has all the emotions. With Silas back in Audrey’s life, what impact will it make to her?
These two have amazing chemistry that I loved reading develop and watching their relationship grow throughout the read!

I can’t wait to see what else this author brings, I highly recommend her and this series!

Not So Far is the 3rd book in the Love Grows Series by Renee Regent. I had read, and loved, the first 2 books in the series and was looking forward to reading another. Not So Wrong is a great second chance romance with characters that you can’t help but fall in love with.
Audrey Colebank is a recently widowed mother of 3 with a huge secret eating away at her. Silas was the love of her life as a teenager and she was devastated when he left and has never forgiven him. Silas has returned to town after the death of his grandfather and his arrival throws Audrey into turmoil. She hates Silas for what he did to her but her body can’t help but still be attracted to him. Silas also has a huge secret of his own as to why he left.
Will either of them divulge the huge secrets that would cause even more turmoil to the other? Can Silas win back Audrey, the love of his life? Can Audrey put the past behind her and make a future with Silas? I’m not going to answer any of these questions. I urge you to read this great book and get the answers for yourself.
This is a great second chance romance that will pull at your heartstrings and drag you through a range of emotions. 100% recommend.

By 5 out of 5

Not So Far is the third book in the love grows series by Renee Regent and I have loved all three books. The characters are well written and strong minded. I just love their quirkiness that the characters share.

Audrey and Silas where teenage lovers for a summer. She thought they had true love, but he left and she doesn’t know why. Now he is back in town and her feelings are just as strong but there is so much water under the bridge, so much anger, so much pain, so much lost, so many secrets.

Silas wants to tell Audrey why he left but he can’t. Will she believe him when he comes clean? Will Audrey tell Silas her secrets? Will Silas forgive Audrey for her secrets?

I enjoyed this standalone story in Renee Regent’s ‘Love Grows’ series, it is a lovely second chance at love story. Silas and Audrey were young when they first fell in love and came from very different backgrounds when Silas just disappeared they were both left heartbroken. When fate brings Silas back to Atlanta, Georgia he is determined to have a second chance at love with Audrey, the only girl he has ever loved. However telling Audrey why he left will devastate her and Silas is not the only one with a secret. I loved the two main characters and the attraction between them was obvious as was the hurt and distrust. I found this an enjoyable read and although this is the first book I’ve read by Renee Regent it will not be the last.

What happens when your life is finally on track and then a blast from the past who you truly loved comes back into your life to threaten everything, well that’s the dilemma Audrey has when Silas comes back into her life to see if the love they had years ago still there.

Audrey has never really forgotten about her first love Silas but when he up and left she was heartbroken but when a chance meeting again threatens to stir all those emotion back up but does she want to go back and put her heart on the line to have it broken all over again.

Silas has thought about the love he lost all those years ago and going back to Atalanta seems the best option to try and re-kindle the love he felt with Audrey but will a secret from his past throw that relationship out of the water or will she be able to forgive him and have want they should have always deserved all those years ago.

I really enjoyed this story, it was full of emotion and a beautiful woven story, I have not read the other two books and felt although the book flowed I would have been better getting more information from the two stories before but that did not deflect from this book, I am greedy and wanted to know more about other characters and Silas and Audrey.

The characters were well developed, you were taken into the story and held all through. The female lead Audrey was sassy and independent, Silas was a great counter to this wonderful female character. I recommend this book and this wonderful story but I would try to read the first two books first just to give some background. I certainly will be reading them shortly.

In an effort to regain the love of his life, Silas must return to Atlanta, Georgia to pick up where he left off with a lover turned enemy, Audrey Colebank. She’s never forgave him for ghosting her years ago. Silas is withholding a secret that someone close to her ran him off in the first place but he doesn’t want to risk hurting Audrey all over again. Silas’ fire still burns deep for Audrey and he can’t extinguish it but the real question is whether or not to rekindle the flame or let it die down by leaving well enough alone.
Audrey has finally created the life she’s always wanted except life threw her a curve ball, the man she once loved: Silas Vance. The same flame he holds for her, she holds for him but she also holds a secret dear to her heart without losing him again. They’re drawn to one another the closer they are in proximity to one another. Will their worlds collide and they face their demons head on?
This is a beautiful read as you can’t help but want these characters to get it together and face their fears to let love win, secrets and all. This is a pleasant read that’s original and entertaining, steamy and romantic. Pick it up and invest in a great story!
