Review Blitz: Best I Ever Had by S.L Scott

February 26, 2022


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.

This was a long journey!! These characters who had no business being together, found something pure and genuine in each other and fell in love. I love those kinds of stories and even though I was expecting something entirely different from this, it still held my attention.

With a storm rolling in, Story has no idea that the customer entering the coffee shop is going to turn her life upside down and change her in ways that she never expected. What starts as a chance encounter, quickly turns into a whirlwind romance that is filled with passion, love and heartbreak. But can they survive the storm?


I really liked that these characters found ways to do what was best for them early on in their relationship and they made time to explore things. This was an extremely instant romance and if I'm being honest, I'm not a fan of those. Things moved too quickly for my liking and I wanted them to slow down a bit and just enjoy the relationship more.

This story is told in three parts where we have the past which is the majority of the book, the present, and a bit of time jump into the future. I really liked seeing the past from both pov's with the main characters but I felt like a lot of things were too much and unnecessary and that hindered my reading experience. I could've done without some of the drama and secrets that felt like it was more of a shock value to stir up even MORE drama. I think of some of those things were left out, I would've enjoyed the story much more.

If you're looking for second chance new adult romance, you might enjoy this one. What didn't work for me, might just be the thing that makes you love it even more.

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.
