    I have read all of Evan's books but this is my favourite. We met Cash in his sisters book therefore we know his backstory and his struggles but four years later he is really making something of himself.Tessa now what a strong girl...appears younger than her years in lots of ways...naive in some ways but so very worldly in others...a tragic life and innocent in the way of men.Now often when we meet females that innocent it feels contrived but this time...no...Tessa was a beautiful soul and it was I have read all of Evan's books but this is my favourite.

I have never felt such connection between characters before and their friendship and subsequent relationship was truly an amazing thing...Cash had demons but it didn't turn him into the proverbial manwhore that we see so frequently...if anything he had 'issues' and this was realistic and a refreshing change. Their relationship hit stumbling blocks and following this was something that I felt may happen but it still took my breath away when it did...I hurt...I cried,no sobbed and I wanted to hug Tessa but she had an amazing support network and Cash...and they all came through for her. A truly breathtaking book and I devoured every last word. Oh and by the way Evan...Jonathon...I so want his story and how he got his HEA...even a teeny novella would be fineby me Lol!

Then when Cash started his little breakdown and started talking about Abby... it was odd that Tessa didn't seem surprised at about anything he shared. It really seemed like a part was missing. Abby was a HUGE part of this story and I wanted to see this roll out differently. The reveal and discussion of the past should have been more elaborate. I would have liked to have seen less time spent on when they were separated and unhappy. This despressing stage lasted too long and became a little boring. And I am left a tad confused... it really seemed like the author was preparing for Jonathan's story to be told in a follow up book. But then epilogue shared details about his future. How can I enjoy reading his story when I already know the ending? (hide spoiler)]

    4.5 stars I loved Tessa. There are people that just radiate kindness and light and she was definitely one of them; just ask anyone who came in contact with her. Cash has worked really hard to get where he is in life, but takes each day as it comes. This was a great story. I loved seeing more of Journey and Dylan. I hope the author is thinking of giving us Jonathan and Shannon story.

    One Day at a Time was such a sweet story! I literally read this book in one sitting and could not put it down, I was doing cooking, doing dishes and putting the kids to bed reading this book. Tessa is the picture of innocence, so sweet and caring even through what she endured as a child. As if the abuse wasn't enough also going through life with a speech impediment that made her an easy target to bullies.

I literally read this book in one sitting and could not put it down, I was doing cooking, doing dishes and putting the kids to bed reading this book. Tessa is the picture of innocence, so sweet and caring even through what she endured as a child. As if the abuse wasn't enough also going through life with a speech impediment that made her an easy target to bullies. She has been dealt a crap hand all of her life and finally stumbled upon her little piece of happiness when she meets Cash. Cash is not without his own demons. He is a recovering addict who is literally taking his sobriety one day at a time and those days happen to get easier once he meets sweet Tessa. This story follows along their courtship and yes, they actually court, the struggles to get through their own insecurities in order to open up and trust another. It is beautiful and sad and heartbreaking at times but it is so worth it! I spent most of the book fighting back tears as so much of this book hit home with me. You could FEEL the struggle and emotions that each of the characters were going through and it will change you. NOTE** This is book 4 in the Starting Over series but it can also be read as a standalone. I didn't realize it when I signed up for the ARC but I was able to read and keep up with the story without a problem. This book actually made me want to go back and read the first three!

    I love this interlocking series. I really enjoy getting a new story line and also getting to catch up on characters that I've already read about and getting an update on their lives. Cash had a past full of grief and wrong choices that he has spent the last 4 years sobering up from and making it up to the people around him that were hurt by his actions. Now that he is getting his life on the right track and things are finally looking up for him he finally starts thinking about a future with poss I love this interlocking series.

Now that he is getting his life on the right track and things are finally looking up for him he finally starts thinking about a future with possibilities and possibly some happiness. Although no matter how much good he does now or how straight his life is he can never get back the one thing that means more to him then anything, his daughter, who is now being raised by his sister and calls her and her husband mommy and daddy. Tessa has lived her life in fear until she turned 18 and her older brother came and saved her from the daily hell she was living in at the hands of her father. From that day on she lived with her brother and helped him raise his daughter after they lost her mother to cancer. Until the day that Cash strolls into her life and makes her want something for herself for a change. They both have demons in their past but they both find in each other the happiness and hope for a great future. All they have to do is admit their demons to each other and find a way to keep them in the past and out of their future...

    This was the book that drew me to the series with its cover.

There was a clear progression in the author's writing over the series and I found this book to be paced better, kept me hooked the most, and felt most engaging. I thought things flowed better and the writing felt more natural and realistic. I found the characters easy to engage with and their dark pasts that seeped into their present broke my heart. There are some quite brutal scenes that weren't easy to read, but I think the author dealt with the tough subjects well. There is only one criticism I have with this series and that's the characters don't vary in their speech and mannerisms that much. A lot of the same phrases are used throughout all four books and I just wanted a bit more originality in their personality. Overall though, I loved Cash and Tessa's story. It's my favourite so far and was the most emotionally engaging. I'm hoping that Jonathon get a book next.

    The title certainly fits the storyline. Both characters have to take each day as it comes. Cash is a former drug addict. He has been drug free for a while, but still has to be aware of everything that he does. Thank goodness the author doesn't let him go back to his addiction even when things get tough. Tessa has some demons of her own. She has been abused by her father and she has a lisp that people make fun of. The story is sweet for about 60 % of the book. Then, wham!! The angst comes.

I needed a Kleenex or two as I finished this story. This book is part of a series, but I feel as if you can read it as a stand alone. I had a very hard time remembering the other story lines to the other books. I had to go back and read the blurbs and my reviews. Therefore, you don't have to read the others to be touched by this story. Dual point of view. No cliffhanger.

    A heart melting book. Even though I was doubtful about this book specially after Begin Again,which did not impress me much. But, I ended up loving Cash and his attitude of one day at a time, but I was also hurt by seeing him punishing himself for his past. The scenes of him with Violet were too painful. At the same time Tessa was an amazing woman. She had the courage to move forward in life by defeating her demons. I loved how she never gave up on Cash and how forgiving and understanding she was A heart melting book.

    Another hit(spoiler alert) Evan Grace has done it again! This is a great addition in this series. I'm glad Cash found his true love who accepted him and loved him for all his flaws. His past was really bad but that is the life of a drug addict. That was written beautifully and in the best light. Tessa who was basically an angel had her own hardships. Child abuse can really scar a child and an adult. I hope I get a book 5 in the series maybe Luke's brother?? Just saying Evan Grace. Another hit(spoiler alert) Evan Grace has done it again!

    This book is by far one of the best stories I have ever read. It made me cry quite a few times but it is such a heart wrenching story. Emotions are in high gear in this one. This author has been the reason I read at all, she has taught me how important it is to make time for yourself and relax with a great book. She has introduced me to so many authors I love to read. Thank You Evan Grace!!!

    Nice! I was hoping the series didn't end before Cash got his story and I wasn't disappointed! As with the other stories in this series, the character development was great for the main characters as well as the supporting cast. The story arc was pretty engaging and the sexy times were pretty hot. Definitely worth the purchase price :) Nice!

    I have loved this series so far. Seeing these unique families and their love stories is amazing. Cash is amazing now that he's sober- it was so hard when he wasn't, and I didn't like him at all. But now that he's sober he's a great guy. I'm glad he's repaired his relationship with Journey, that he is friends with Dylan now and that he gets to get to know Abby. I love Tessa- she's so strong and great, she knew what she wanted and she put all of her heart into it. She's the perfect mate for Cash. I have loved this series so far.
