Review - By Another Name by Ashley Elizabeth Ludwig
Title: By Another Name
Author: Ashley Elizabeth Ludwig
Publisher: White Rose Publishing
Rating: You Need to Read
Blurb: What happens when a reformed high school bully falls for the girl he tormented seven years earlier? When Kade Sinclair crashes into the girl of his dreams, she quickly wrecks his heart. Not one to take no for an answer, he pulls out all the stops to win her over. What he learns changes his life forever. Rosalee Timmons is coming home. A single mother, new business owner, and the object of the most popular guy in town’s attention--starting over will be the biggest hurdle of her life. She may be hiding behind a new name, but that doesn't heal the old scars on her wounded heart. When Kade realizes that confident, aloof Lee is actually little Rosalee Timmons all grownup, it seems he hasn’t a snowball’s chance. But when opportunity knocks, he finds a way back into her life. Will Lee accept an apology seven years in the making, or will Kade give up before she finally gives in?
By Another Name is such a touching and pleasurable read. I don't think there is one person who wasn't taunted in one form or another in high school. High school prepares you for the person you are to become and Rosalee was no different. Rosalee's character is a survivor and has fought to make her own way in life. Her main goal in life is taking care of her daughter. She is forced to confront her past and those who ridiculed her. I really felt for Kade's character because no matter what he did, or how many times he apologized, the fact that he could not take it back made him guilt-ridden and ashamed for what he had done. Directly or indirectly, he was responsible for some of her past and he would do anything in his power to fix what had been done. From the moment he meets Lee, his heart belongs to her and his character was so adorable and unsure of himself, unlike 7 years earlier.
Ashley Elizabeth Ludwig did an exceptional job relating to the reader. The story had characters that I really enjoyed and the message was perfect especially during the Easter holidays. I recommend this book to all those who love to read a super sweet love story with very real emotions. It's a story of forgiveness, love and the fact that when you get older, yes, you really can have what you desire.
