David Hawthorne made a huge mistake a year ago. His college friends had decided on a private reunion in Florida and while there, the party got out of control and he cheated on his fiancée, Evie Matthews. As soon as he returned from Florida, he confessed all to Evie.

Evie would never have believed that David would betray her, so when he confessed, he completely broke her heart and made it impossible for her to continue with their engagement. Although she was dying inside, she gave him back his ring and told him she never wanted to see him again. Now a year has passed and David’s life has gone from bad to worse. It takes seeing Evie with another man to snap him out of his funk and make him realize that he’s willing to do whatever it takes to get another chance with the love of his life.

I had read and enjoyed Red Garnier’s Spin Devil and so I knew that David had messed up in that book. I was driven by curiosity to find out if he managed to hang on to the woman he loved and if he could redeem himself after his betrayal. But I’m afraid to say that Spin It Again left me frustrated. Ms. Garnier does a superb job emotionally drawing the reader into the story. You can literally feel the emotions from betrayal to devastation to anger and finally to love and forgiveness. However, as a reader my frustration stemmed from David’s continuing statements that if Evie truly loved him she’d forgive him. He kept repeating that over and over and it made him an extremely hard character to like, let alone forgive. Ms. Garnier is a writer who I will definitely be reading again, but as a romantic hero, David left me cold and made me wish I’d given Spin It Again a pass.
