Blog Tour: You Turn by Marion Croslydon

"I was the little girl who loved you from afar. I was the woman who gave herself away for you and ended up losing a lot of who she was."

"Then allow me to give back some of what I stole."

After being dumped by her fiancé, Eleanor Carrington flees to Paris to stay with her self-medicated mother. While keeping her mom from popping pills like gummy bears, Eleanor launches a new, no-strings-attached life plan with absolutely NO falling in love whatsoever. On her part at least, because her self-esteem could do with one or two Frenchmen going un peu crazy for her.

What she doesn’t need is for her first Grand Amour to burst back into her life. What she doesn’t need is all-American Zachary Murdoch—or a more mature and sensitive version of him—to schmooze his way into her heart again. She grew up loving the/this/that man until he dumped her five summers ago. Whatever shit-show/life drama she’s just been through was a stroll. What Zach put her though was a climb up Mount Everest. Barefoot. In a bikini.

Now a club-owner in Paris, Zach is intrigued by the troubled woman who was once the sweet girl he had to give up. Offering a shoulder for her to cry on is what he owes her. Loving her is what he lost the right to. Because there’s a reason he broke up with Lenor and that reason is why she’s in Paris.

But Paris is called the City of Love…

Will he be her turn at love?

*** You Turn is a contemporary adult romance and part of the Second Chances series. However, Lenor’s story can be read as a stand-alone novel. There is no cliffhanger. ***
You Turn is available for purchase:

So I read You Turn as a stand-alone without having reading the other Second Chances series and it definitely held it's own. I was actually surprised as to how much I enjoyed it. Though you knew that Lenor and Zach were, inevitably, going to end up together in the end, their story was not at all boring. There was a lot of history with the two of them and that just added to the chemistry that was evidently still bubbling away.

You have Lenor who's trying to jump-start her life after being dumped by her fiance and then you have Zach who's more than made a life for himself in Paris. Even though they are old friends/neighbours, you get a foreboding feeling that something odd is going on in the background with their family history. Maybe it was just me but I found Zach's "reappearance" in Lenor's life a bit fishy from the get-go. Even still, it was nice to see a first love rekindle itself. I was pleasantly surprised as the story unfolded. Definitely worth the read if you're a romantic and you like lovers redeeming themselves the second time around!
