Review: A Long Time Coming by Heather Van Fleet

Abigail Orson has a problem. A love problem to be precise; and she has absolutely no idea how to go about fixing it.

For years now, she has been chasing her best friend’s brother—demanding things from him that he’s never wanted to give. For one? A real relationship that surpasses well beyond that dreaded ‘just friends’ zone. You see, David Anderson is her idea of perfection to a T. The one and only guy who has ever had the ability to make her heart beat faster; make her toes curl with the simple blink of his long, girly lashes. But David is also a recovering amputee, and the only thing he really wants from Abigail is to be left alone. Abigail is a fighter though, and losing the one guy who has ruined her for every other is no longer an option.

A guy with one leg who has lost his motivation to live—to love—to actually be a man. David believes he’s a waste of space. If only the beautiful girl of his unattainable dreams would get that through her perfect, blonde, stubborn head! He’s not the right guy for Abigail. He’ll never be worthy of what she deserves. However, staying away is almost impossible, especially when he’s just as in love with her as she is with him. But Abigail has a life ahead of her, one that’s definitely livable without a nineteen–year–old gimp like him holding her down. What makes her want to stick around is beyond questionable to David’s mind.

Choices will be made. Lines will be drawn. And together, they will face challenges that nobody saw coming. David and Abigail may have had almost fourteen years to fall in love, but the thing is, timing and love have never exactly worked in their favor. 

It has been years in the making, and definitely A Long Time Coming for David and Abigail. Let’s hope they don’t screw it up before they actually have the chance to get it right…

A Long Time Coming holds true to the title. This is the second book in the Perfect Timing Series and we were introduced to David and Abigail in When It’s Least Expected. Now the author is giving us the story of two young adults, both with dreams and desires, along with the heart breaks that life has planned for them. Be prepared to laugh at times and sob ugly tears while you see how they will end up after a bumpy ride. For the 19 year olds, Abigail dreams of being with David, while David wants her plus a football career. The plans were destroyed after a life changing event leaving David handicapped and emotionally damaged. Abigail lost as to how to help David has to make a choice. How strong is she really going to be in the face of David’s pain and recovery? She is going to have to depend on her sassy attitude and determination to bring David out of the dark tunnel he finds himself in. The author gives us both POV and did a great job at keeping it true to how 19 year olds would talk and act. Their love was slow to build in actions but was clear their hearts needed to be bonded together. Along with the first book, the author gives us a well-developed story line and characters that makes it easy for the readers to invest their time and hearts. This could be a stand-alone book but I would highly recommend that you read the series.
