On the outside August has it all. He's handsome and wealthy and he has several homes and great cars. August is successful in everything he does. Not many people know the grief that August has to deal with on the inside. Losing his mother in a car accident left him and his father broken. August's father also hurt other people in that same accident, but managed to walk away from any legal obligations. When August found out he was determined to pay the dues for the wrongs his father did. August doesn't let anyone come close when it comes to a romantic relationship. He feels that he is too damaged to be the person a woman needs. That is until he meets Nashville.
Nashville, or Nash for short, is a nurse and a country girl at heart. She works long hours and sends as much money as she can to her parents. Her parents own a ranch in Nashville and are struggling to keep up with all the bills. Nash lives together with her best friend Anna, who is also a nurse. They love to go rock climbing together. At the top of a climbed rock Nash meets August. Nash is instantly drawn to him and when August hurts his hand on the way down she doesn't hesitate to tell him to go to the hospital, so Nash can take care of him.
August is such a sweet and kind man and he gives more than he takes. He spends a lot of money to make the lives of other people better. He feels guilty about the accident which killed his mother. Because of his guilt he still takes care of his father who is in a catatonic state after a stroke. August can be stubborn, dominant and controlling but he needs this for his own survival. He's a person I instantly loved and who captured my heart with his kindness.
Nash has always been a good daughter to her parents. She works hard and is loyal. Nash is also funny and feisty. August's millions don't faze her. She's her own person and manages to take care of herself really well. I loved the fact that Nash didn't let August dominate her. She isn't a pushover and demands to be treated well. Nash has a good heart and is willing to do what needs to be done to save the people she loves.
Next August is an amazing story about grief, love and finding the strength to let people in again. Kelly Moore never lets you down with her strong and deep characters. August is an Alpha male who finds his equal in Nash. They truly complete each other. This story captivated me from the beginning and the twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat. Kelly Moore's writing style flows so naturally that I flew through the pages. Next August is an emotional read with so much love, I'll remember this story for a very long time. Kelly Moore is one of my favorite authors and I highly recommend any book written by her.
If you're looking for an intense story about finding true love Next August would be a perfect choice.
