Sunny Shelly’s Review: Best I Ever Had by S.L. Scott

Release Date: February 25


The storm.

The man.


Both come without warning.


My heart opens to Cooper Haywood the moment we meet. How can it resist? He’s charming, devastatingly handsome, and sweeps me off my feet before I realize the impact he’s making. And then it’s too late.


We fall too fast to worry about the consequences.


We love so hard that we ache when we’re apart.


Even though I have a past that still haunts me and he has a future that could put us at risk, none of that matters when we’re together.


Until it does.


And then everything changes.


Although the best thing he ever gave me now calls me Mommy, I can’t help but wonder if Cooper Haywood and that fateful storm were one and the same.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Oh, my heart! SL Scott again delivers a powerful, angst-filled second chance romance that packs a whopper of an emotional punch. I was up into the wee hours of the morning reading because I could not put Best I Ever Had down!

Cooper and Story lived completely different lives, yet there are so many threads that connect them. Threads that they didn’t even know existed even after they met. Cooper lives the life of a prince, but in many ways, he is an emotional pauper, used as a pawn in his family’s game of success and fortune. I felt so badly for him during the scenes with his parents. They are such vile people, and they treated Story (and Cooper for that matter!) absolutely horribly.

Cooper and Story’s story was nothing short of amazing, despite the time, secrets, and unfortunate circumstances that pulled them apart. But just like they were destined to meet six years ago, when they cross paths again in New York City years later, it’s like no time has passed. Except that so much has actually happened to each of them. It was beautiful to see them pick up where they left off, talk through their issues, realized where they went wrong, and forge a new relationship with their little boy, Reed.

Cooper and Story loved fast, loved hard, and fell even harder. Best I Ever Had is full of angst and big emotions, but it has the most wonderful HEA! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Meet S.L. Scott
New York Times and USA Bestselling Author, S. L. Scott, was always interested in the arts. She grew up painting, writing poetry and short stories, and wiling her days away lost in a good book and the movies.
With a degree in Journalism, she continued her love of the written word by reading American authors like Salinger and Fitzgerald. 
She was intrigued by their flawed characters living in picture perfect worlds, but could still debate that the worlds those characters lived in were actually the flawed ones. 
This dynamic of leaving the reader invested in the words, inspired Scott to start writing with emotion while interjecting an underlying passion into her own stories.
Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. She dreams of seeing one of her own books made into a movie one day as well as returning to Europe. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she’s a pro.
