NEW REVIEW! Not Enough by Leigh Ann Lunsford


Brielle Parker has her life in front of her; she just does not know how to live it. After years of not being enough for her parents, or the dreams she once had, how did one man Colby James show her she was actually more than enough?

Raised by her grandparents with her three siblings, Brielle was loved, no doubt. However, her grandparents were taken too soon, and she was left with her older sibling to try to raise her younger ones. She couldn’t help but let the doubts take over her life. Would she ever be enough? Then Colby walked in and changed everything, and just when she was facing her fears and falling in love for the first time, Colby ripped her heart out. 

Will they be able to get past their mistakes to live the life they both want? Did Colby finally break Brielle when all he wanted to do was protect and love her? You can rebound from some mistakes, but some you just have to learn from and walk away. The love they have is true and pure, but will they finally be enough for each other

There are three things that to me make a great book, characters, story line and a happy ending! Well I was not disappointed with reading this book.

Not everyone has a perfect childhood or perfect parents, and although Brielle loved her siblings and grandparents her parents were another story. Never being able to measure up in their eyes she was turned on by her parents in the worst way. People who were supposed to love you and believe in you no matter what. They were not those parents for Brielle. She learned early on at the age of 12 that to them she wasn't special or good enough, so with the love and support of her grandparents Brielle was able to grow up and graduate college and return home to her siblings she loved unconditionally.

This was where she met the to be one person that did think she was enough Colby. He is in love from the first moment he laid eyes on her. After a lot of convincing and reassurances Brielle let's Colby in, finally decides she can love someone and have them love her back like she deserves. This of course does not go off without a hitch and Colby does some really shitty stuff and breaks Brielle's fragile heart even more. (He is a man after all so they do stupid shit) 

Knowing that staying in town and being broken over Colby isn't helping Brielle heal nor letting her be there for her siblings like she wants to so she takes off for a few months to do some soul searching and working on her demons. Finally finally FINALLY she comes home and is ready to give her everything to not only her family but the love of her life Colby as well...

The dynamic of this book and the crazy ass family that Brielle has is awesome! I love them all and can't wait for the rest of their stories because I know it can only get better

4 Stars!

Brielle Parker has had a tough life. From the time she was 12 years old, Brielle has had the notion that she's not enough. Not for her parents. Not for herself. Not for anyone. 

But she had accepted that. 

All Brielle wanted was to finish school, and head back home to her family that she loved unconditionally. And so she did. What she didn't expect when she got back home was Colby James. 

It was an instant attraction for the both of them. And while Brielle tried her damnedest to resist Colby out of fear that he would be another person in her life that she wasn't enough for, her attempts were futile. She couldn't get him out of her mind. And the same went for Colby. Except he knew he loved her, basically from the beginning.

As with any relationship, Brielle and Colby have their ups and downs. And the downs are definitely pretty pretty DOWN....Like...Someone should be kicked in the shin... *COUGH COUGH* Colby *COUGH COUGH!* But I won't get into all that...Ya'll can read the book yourselves and determine what part of Colby's anatomy ya'll wanna kick.

I loved this book. I loved the entire dynamic of all the characters throughout the whole book! Brielle's relationship with her family is absolutely admirable and there isn't a damn thing she wouldn't do for them. Colby is almost perfect, and would be if it weren't for his serious indiscretion, but he's perfect for Brielle. He's the first person who's ever been able to get through to Brielle and prove to her that she is in fact enough

I hated what Brielle had to deal with when she was younger, and I hate even more that she's dealt with it all these years without any help. My heart broke for her and I just wanted her to tell someone, anyone, what had happened to her.

I LOVED this book, and I recommend it to all! I can't wait to read the next installment in the Parker Siblings Series!
