REVIEW: Resilience By Amanda Shelley Book 1 Of A Duet

Book One


Samantha never saw Enzo coming.

As the dust settles from her divorce, her life is full. She doesn’t have time for distractions. She’s too busy running her own company and checking off numerous items from her kids’ demanding schedule to have a life of her own.

Then he walks into her kitchen with his breathtaking green eyes and a mischievous grin. He’s there to surprise his father – her contractor, but his presence makes everything off kilter.

Enzo’s perfectly content with his adventurous life as an elite rescue pilot, until a harmless prank turns on him. Instead of surprising his father, he finds his world thrown off course by the beautiful woman with a sexy smile, wicked sass and the mouthwatering ability to keep him on his toes.

With his limited time on leave, is she worth the risk to his heart? 



I love Single parent tropes and I love realistic but not stale interpretation on those relationships and how they grow. 

This is my first Amanda Shelley book and I fell in love!! This book is sweet, instalove, and amazingly steamy! He had his heart broken and never felt that connection again.

She was still recovering and finding herself after a marriage that created 3 beautiful and funny kiddos! 

Then the decision to add more chaos to her life and renovate her kitchen, was one of the best she ever made. 

Sam is who I wish I could be as a single mom (I am a mom just not a single one), she is strong balanced and generous. She does have a mildly shaky relationship with her ex, but is strong enough to rise above all their issues and pettiness so her kids can have an amazing relationship with their dad. 

Enzo is in his late 30s and just discovering who is he is after 20 years of bachelorhood and military life stationed so far away over seas disconnected from family and hometown friends. His time is coming to a close should he choose, but will that help him find himself, or settle down like his Mom and Dad want, or will he find adjusting to civilian life to hard to manage. 

Enzo is slowing overtaking all other boyfriends in my Book Boyfriend List, and I really want to be mommy friends with Samantha so she can teach me the balance she has found. 

This is my very first 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review of 2020!! 

I cannot wait to see what book two of this duet hold in store!!!

Seriously…. I cannot wait! Lol
