Book Review: Not Enough (Parker Siblings #1) by Leigh Ann Lunsford




Title: Not Enough (Parker Siblings #1

Author: by Leigh Ann Lunsford 

Genre: New Adult


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?



My Rating:
4.5


Favorite Quotes:

“Brielle, I am in no way, shape, or form a boy.  If you need me to demonstrate that at any given time, I am up for it.” 

“I want to take you home and worship you tonight, tomorrow, and every day until my life is over.”

“He is a few colors short of a rainbow, if you get what I am saying.  He has no filter.  I am not sure he even understands half of what comes out of his mouth, so I don’t know how in the hell anyone around him is expected to.”

“I want to bend him in ways Gumby would be jealous of.  I wonder if there is a pill or a shot for these feelings.”


My Review:


This is my first exposure to Leigh Ann Lunsford, and luckily, for once, I have started at the beginning.  I adored her characters and their frenetic energy, sassy mouths, and scrappy personalities.  What fun.  Her writing style and dialog are casual, breezy, and wicked funny.  I was instantly sucked in and had difficulty disentangling myself from the story when I had to put my precious kindle down.  I plan to read her entire catalog as I want to see what she has planned for the rest of the Parker clan.

Leigh Ann Lunsford is stay at home mom turned author. She writes Romance/New Adult and loves her happily ever after in all books and movies. She lives with her husband, son, and four dogs in Fleming Island, Florida. When she isn’t writing or reading you can find her stuck in front of really bad reality shows or watching Sons of Anarchy. Leigh Ann has a filthy mouth and a huge amount of sarcasm that knows no end. She hopes to give the voices in her head an outlet with many more novels to come.
