Title: Resplendent
Release Date: July 28, 2013
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Chicklit

Savannah Martinez and Andres Rivera have been friends since high school.
She knew him better than anyone else, and he was the only one she ever confided in.
Their friendship was the one brilliant thing they each cherished that wasn’t tarnished by outside forces that wanted them apart. 

But fate wasn’t on their side. When she gave him the chance to turn their relationship into something more, he let her go.
Heartbroken and alone, she kept her distance in more ways than one. Now, years later, Savannah is back in town for good and Andres realizes just how empty his life has been without her.

When a secret comes to light, forcing a deeper wedge between them, Andres finds himself fighting for the only woman he has ever loved. Determined to fix the past and make things right, he will go to any length to prove to Savannah that they were meant to be together. 

Will fate give them a second chance? Or will those secrets and betrayals ruin the one last chance Andres has of being with the woman of his dreams?

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review*
I want more Andres and Savannah!!! Don’t get me wrong, I liked Veronica and Jared’s story in Happenstance (book 1, yet both books are complete stand alones) but I LOVED Andres and Savannah’s story!!! I love when characters have a history together and get a second chance at making things right. 
MJ gives us a dual POV through the entire book as well as a past/present story telling in the beginning where we see how they met and the challenges that kept them apart. MJ definitely kicked up the angst to a fantastic level; I wasn’t quite sweating bullets needing calm down juice but I definitely destroyed my cuticles wondering if Andres and Savannah would overcome the roadblock thrown at them courtesy of her jealous bi*ch face cousin Carmin…

Carmin is also…
I HATED Carmin but every good angsty book needs an antagonist and MJ nailed it with this one so I guess I kind of liked her too. There was also a BIG surprise I was happy/excited for at the end which made me 😀

MJ Abraham is one author you really should check out, after two solid books IMO I look forward to whatever future projects she has in store.

Resplendent was a solid 4 star for me
