Perchance by Lila Felix-YA Contemporary Romance
Kindle format given by author for review
The first word that comes to mind when I think about Perchance, is sweet. This is truly a sweet and tender love story. Things weren't always perfect or easy for Remi and Cooper, but their love for each other was true.
I really felt for Remi. She's the oldest of four kids of a single mother. Her father left them when she was younger and her mom has struggled balancing two jobs. That left Remi to help with her siblings and leave little time to be a kid/teenager herself. When it gets to be too much, Remi goes to live with a relative. Remi doesn't want to turn out like her mom. She will not rely on a man to support her. So, she's determined to get through school and follow a plan. The problem is....she met Cooper.
Cooper is perfect. Seriously, perfect. He moves to the same town as Remi to live with his estranged father. Cooper sees Remi on her first day in town and is captivated. Flirtation begins, but Remi is hesitant about taking it further. Not because she doesn't feel the same way, but because falling for Cooper isn't part of her plan. Cooper doesn't give up on her though. I loved his determination to make her see that he can be a part of her life, encourage her to succeed, and most important...will stand by her always.
These two both had some distorted views on family life. Neither one had a great model to follow. Even though Remi was the one that was so reluctant about the relationship, Cooper had some of his own issues to overcome. I was glad to see how is relationship with his father developed. I also loved the subtle interference from Edith.
Overall, Perchance was a pleasant, easy read. It sends a good message by showing the value of learning to include and rely on others to love and support you in your dreams. Lila Felix has created another story that I would definitely recommend. This is a mild romance and is appropriate for 15 and older readers.
