5 wonderful Stars


Brielle Parker has her life in front of her, she just does not know how to live it. After years of not being enough for her parents, or the dreams she once had, how did one man Colby James show her she was actually more than enough?

Raised by her grandparents with her three siblings, Brielle was loved, no doubt. However, her grandparents were taken too soon, and she was left with her older sibling to try and raise her younger ones. She couldn't help but let the doubts take over her life. Would she ever be enough? Then Colby walked in and changed everything, and just when she facing her fears and falling in love for the first time, Colby ripped her heart out.

Will they be able to get past their mistakes to live the life they both want? Did Colby finally break Brielle when all he wanted to do was protect and love her? You can rebound from some mistakes, but some you just have to learn from and walk away. The love they have is true and pure, but will they finally be enough for each other?



I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review

You know sometimes you read a book and wonder when does the title start to make sense, when do you get to that moment when you say “ ah ha”!. 'Not Enough' does not give you any doubts or leave you asking questions. The title of the book says it all in it's wonderful glory. From the Prologue to the Epilogue the story was well put together and  the characters drew me in. It was so easy to love all the characters; Dustin, Cambree, Addison, Tyler all added to my many laughs and the overall enjoyment of the book.

The story mostly revolved around Brielle Parker and Colby James.
Brielle was a funny, strong headed, talented in cheering and singing along with kicking ass and taking notes later kind of girl. A fire cracker was an understatement for this girl.
"How many times have I told you never to call me Brie? I am not a damn piece of moldy cheese"

I loved Brielle from the beginning. Everyone seemed to be in love with her but also feared her. I loved the name and I am seriously thinking of naming my future daughter 'Brielle'. Even though Brielle appears to be strong she is also broken. I will not use the term 'weak' because I believe despite all the she went through she kept pushing through for herself and for her family. She may have constantly question if she was enough for anyone and that was something her alone could have answered.

I loved that even though she had a kick ass attitude that she was also so caring, loving towards her family and a great friend.
We see all the craziness that surrounds her life. A horrible ex-boyfriend, parents who are non-exist because of a traumatic experience she went through as a child and losing her grandparents was a lot to handle. My heart broke for this poor girl. When she thought that everything and everyone around her was either hiding something or behaving out of control in walks Colby, calm and smooth.........
Oh man,  Colby James from the first time he was introduced I felt that he was the one. There was a connection the minute he saw Brielle and we saw him instantly become intrigued in getting to know her despite being warned off. 
Colby was calm, romantic, successful, caring, and determine to break down Brielle's wall.

“ I will tell you one more time. One day Brielle, I will be yours and you will be mine”<<<why can't I find a guy like this *swoon*

I really enjoyed that Colby had his head on his shoulder. He knew he wanted Brielle and he stopped at nothing to get her. I must admit that Colby drove me mad at one point in the book. Leigh Ann did an excellent job in showing that everyone is not perfect. Everyone makes mistakes and everyone deserves forgiveness.
I always enjoy when a story is told in alternating point of views. We got the POV's from Brielle, Colby, Tyler and Addison.

You won't be disappointed when you purchase this book. It is filled with everything that you would need in an excellent story.  I cried myself to sleep, so many heart breaks *sigh*. I also laughed until my belly hurt.  You know when a story is great when you read the last page and still feel like you could read another book about the main characters.
I am honestly going through a serious Colby withdrawal but I am looking forward to reading 'Not Leaving' after that ending  that Leigh Ann gave us in 'Not Enough' OMG!!!!
