Not Enough
Leigh Ann Lunsford


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 to 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 was 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?

Wow! This book was so Awesome.
The story is about a girl who is so sassy, smart, stubborn and a smart ass. She is totally devoted to her family. Raised by her social laddering climbing parents till the age of 12 until the "incident". Brielle thought from then on she was never "Not Enough".

Brielle has graduated early from college just to be with her siblings. They are her whole reason of being. She has an older sister Addison and a younger sister Cambree and younger brother Dustin. Her and Addy are very close and both were into cheering and competitions.

Her parents wanted her to become a famous singer since she had such a beautiful voice. This was not what Brielle wanted. Her parents tried to use her to further their life in the social ladder they tried to maintain. After the "incident", grandfather came to get her right away with gun in hand. The other children came a short time later. Brielle and her grandfather were very close to one another and she cherished them both dearly.

After their grandparents died, Addy had built her house on the many acres that were left to them along with several other business's. She and Brielle, Cambree and Dustin all live together and they both handle the other business's. So they have no need for money since their grandparents left it to all of them. Brielle comes back home after school and procedes to help raise the other 2. She is especially worried about her younger brother Dustin and his allergy that is so very life threatening to him. She is the one who takes him the doctors and monitors his allergy closely. Brielle has had one true boyfriend and that didnt work out well for her. She focused on her family and decided to fore go the boys and remained a virgin. Till....Colby!

Addy has her boyfriend of 6 years, Tyler, and he has his cousin Colby come to town to help him in his parts business expansion. Colby is from North Carolina and is a physical therapist. He is one hot man that Brielle cant take her eyes off of him. He is eyecandy as hell to her and AMBITIOUS! And...hes going to start working at the gym Addy and Brielle own! (Brielle doesnt know this as of yet). Brielle stays active in the cheering after she comes home because of Cambree's interest in it and it gives her the feeling of control of her own life.

Even after Tylers warnings of her being a firecracker. But Colby doesnt listen to Tylers warnings and procedes with this feeling he has for Brielle and the feeling is mutual.

Will Brielle ever feel like she is enough? Will Colby tell her she will always be enough?
You gotta read this to find out. The story of Brielle and Colby is pure love. I love Brielle! She stands on her own 2 feet and no one will mess with her. She tells you just how she feels and dont care what anyone thinks. She is so strong willed but yet broken from her past as a child. Colby is so tender and gentle with her and very patient. But will that be enough for Brielle to maintain a relationship with him?

I give this 5 stars because I love the hell fire Brielle is and the story is so loving and romantic and Brielles commitment to her siblings. Im really hoping there is a story of Addy next! This would be perfect. And would I recommend this book... Hell Yes I would!
