Life’s Turned Upside Down is a sweet romance full of heart and emotions. Gabriella is the youngest of her family. She has witnessed so many around her find their HEA. She wonders if she will ever find hers. She really wants to find it, but she finds it hard after her ex broke her heart. She’s not sure she can trust anyone completely with her heart again.
Ashton is a doctor in her family’s medical practice, and he and Gabriella have never gotten along. He’s not the friendliest person, and she has no problem letting him know exactly how she feels. However, her brother thinks he sees some passion behind her harsh words. Neither Ashton nor Gabriella realize how each of them will turn the other’s life upside down. Their lives will never be the same again.
There is no doubt in the beginning that Gabriella doesn’t like Ashton AT ALL! Her family has come to accept him, and as she spends more time around him, she discovers why he has acted the way he has. Through her acceptance and love for him, I got to see what a special person she really was. When she discovers a secret about his past, she will run the risk of losing him. But, I love that she goes forward with eventually revealing the truth to him despite possibly losing him…she feels like the truth will ultimately free him from his painful past even if his future might not include her.
Ashton was a complex character. I, like Gabriella, wasn’t a huge fan of his. As I got to know him, I came to love him. I could completely understand why he acted the way he did. Underneath his tough exterior was still the little boy who wanted a family to love and accept him. I loved watching the walls around his heart completely shatter to let Gabriella in.
While this is a standalone in the series, I do wish I had begun at the beginning. There are a lot of characters, and I would have loved to have gotten to know them from the beginning. But, I can download the earlier books and start over! I recommend reading if you are looking for a romance that will definitely pull at your heartstrings.
