Review Tour: Feel Again by Faith Andrews



A dare.

A dying wish.


After years of loneliness, widowed Gabriella is ready to fill the void—as long as she doesn't have to give her heart to another man.

Caleb's screwed himself right into a dead-end existence. Faced with an ultimatum, he's hell-bound on changing his reckless ways.

A chance meeting has these two instantly attracted to one another, but when their paths cross again—this time as professor and student—the roles reverse on Professor Edwards as Caleb teaches her how to feel again.

4 Star Review by Jen Skewes

I love Faith Andrews writing and was so excited to read Feel Again.  I loved the idea of a forbidden romance between a teach and student.  And I love that the heroine, widow with grown woman falls in love with a younger man, especially when that man is Caleb.  But what I loved most of all is that this is a second chance love story.  And I don’t men a second chance for the two main characters but a second chance for the heroine.  

Gabby lost the love of her life 10 years ago and has never opened herself up to another man since then.  After her husband dies she moved across the country with her 10 year old twin girls.  Staying in NY was too much of a reminder of what she lost and the life she had with her husband. She needed to get away from it all and in a way start over.  It is now 10 years later and her girls are all grown up.  Since losing her husband she has not been able to be with another man.  Tommy was the love of her life and she just did not feel right moving on.  Gabby’s sister and her daughters dare her to go our on a date, just one date and see what happens.  Gabby decides to go out with them that night and she meets Caleb.  There was an instant connection between the two of them but after that night she has no contact with him.    And that is when fate steps in and bring these two together.  Just in a way that makes anything between them completely forbidden and of limits.

Caleb was basically raised by his grandmother whom he loved an adored.  He has no job, has sex with many woman and basically had no direction in life at all.  But when he is faced with an ultimatum he has no choice but to try to do something with his life.  He wants to be a better person, for himself and for his grandmother.  He is done with sex with random girls.  He needs to go to school, find a job, happiness and love.  He meets Gabby one night at a bar and she is the most beautiful girl that he has ever seen.  He feels the connection.  But after that first night that they met he can’t stop thinking about her but hasn’t seen her since.  Until he steps foot in his classroom and realizes that he is his teacher.  Dating your teacher is completely off limits.  But Caleb isn’t having it.  He knows that there is something between them and he will prove it to Gabby.  But is Gabby willing to take the risk and open up her heart to another man.  

I really enjoyed this book.  It gave you all of the feels that I love in a book.  The prologue completely sucked me in.  My heart just broke for Gabby.  The scene was so real and so well written.  You felt the emotions that she was going through.  After her husband died her life was her and her daughters.  The guilt of moving on, of thinking that she would forget her love if she did stopped her from finding love again.  She raised her daughter and took care of them for the past ten years but they are all gown up and it is her time.  It is time for Gabby to see that it is ok to move on.  And that just because you move on does not mean that you forget.  Caleb is the perfect person to help her realize that.  He fell for her and fell hard.  Not only was he her student but he was also much younger than her and in ways he taught her how to live.  He helped her heal and move on.  They faced some obstacles along the way, in the form of one crazy bitch, and let’s not forget the age difference, the guilt of  moving on from a deceased husband oh and the fact that she is Caleb’s teacher.  But there was nothing that would keep these two apart.  Caleb and Gabby were adorable together and I was rooting for them all the way.  Feel Again is a beautiful story of loss, love, second chances and learning how to love again.  A fantastic job by Faith Andrews.


As I stretch my vision past Aubrey, to another group of barely-dressed girls, I notice her. Long, coffee-brown hair falling down her back and almost touching her perfectly rounded ass. The ass that’s encased in a skin-tight black number and silky legs accentuated by heels that look dangerous. It’s a sin that someone who looks like her should have her eyes focused on the ground. Focus them on me, I will her. A package as beautifully put together as she is deserves attention—my attention. If only she knew she blows every woman in this room away. And not just because of how striking she is. There’s something about her, something different. This woman is a rare find in a room full of cookie-cutter imitations.

Her shiny waves cascade over her shoulders, bouncing as she walks in my direction. The deep chocolate hue compliments her radiant olive skin tone and her glistening green eyes. This woman is fucking gorgeous. Not the kind you take home to screw, the kind you take home to Mom . . . or, er, Grandma.

“Caleb. I was talking to you.”

I snap back to find Aubrey’s hands around my waist. “Conversation’s over. There’s someone I need to talk to.” I walk away, not even glancing back at Aubrey. I need to know who this woman is. I’m not a spiritual man, but she just might be sent from heaven. She’s the type of woman who could change the whole game. At least that’s the vibe I’m getting.

As I escape Aubrey, it’s as if I’m being magnetically pulled toward the woman now sitting at the bar. I watch her from afar at first, gauging her body language. Her fingers tap on the marble bar top as she waits for the bartender’s attention. She’s new to this. No regular waits for her order to be taken when she looks the way she does. Dude, I want to scream at the bartender, how can you not see her? She’s . . . God, not only is she gorgeous but there’s something about the way she’s fidgeting that tells me she’s completely out of her element. How could this sophisticated beauty be out of her element in a club full of women who wish they had half her class? And why is she here alone? If she were my girl, everyone would know it. My arms would be wrapped around her, my fingers settling on the small of her back, claiming her as mine.

I watch this classy creature as she plays with the curled edges of her hair, twisting the strands around her index finger. I play with my hair when I’m nervous. Is she nervous or just timid? Either way, I want to know. I want to know everything about this damn woman, starting with her name.

When she orders herself a Ketel and Seven I decide to be brave. “Make that two,” I add, getting comfortable in my stool.

At first she eyes me like I’m some creep, but then . . . shit! When our eyes meet it’s as if the universe has made up for every shitty thing that ever came my way.
