REVIEW - Balance Check - M.E. Carter

TITLE - Balance Check 

AUTHOR - M.E. Carter 


Life has a funny way of throwing you off balance.

Take me for example. I spent years in a bad marriage with a self-serving ass, only to have the love of my life show up when I least expected him. Greg helped me on my journey of self discovery and taught me that, no, I’m not perfect. But I’m perfectly me. It was an amazing journey.

We laughed hard. We loved even harder. 

And then he was suddenly and cruelly ripped away from me by the unclenching jaws of fate.

Ok, so it wasn’t that dramatic. And I really need to stop watching the Investigation Channel.

But now Greg is back and as it turns out, re-incorporating someone into your life isn’t that easy. Between jobs, kids, and barely-there friendships, life and love can be messy. Making it all work is a balancing act.

But we’re determined to get it in check.


Balance Check is the second book in #mynewlife series. I'm happy to say that this book is done because in book 1 I felt that it ended with a cliffy. Plus I wanted to know what was going to happen!

We continue on with the lives of Elena and Greg. It's been 9 months since Greg moved away and Elena is still a mess. She has to get it together and get a job first, so she becomes receptionist at the elementary school. 

She still takes her kid to the gym and she gets shocked by Greg being there. She is full of emotions, mainly mad at him for at least not letting her know. 

Greg couldn't get Elena out of his mind. He thought it was too late with coming back. 

Elena tried to cut off all ties with Greg but it was hard. She was afraid of getting her heart broken again with Libby moving and having to take Payton which forces Greg to follow them. 

This story was a short , quick read. You have to read Get a Grip first. I had questions in book 1 and they are answered with reading this book so thank you M.E. Carter! Greg and Elena have a second chance at love!! 

A few quotes I loved:

"A balance check is a way of taking a pause in the middle of your routine so you can re adjust so you don't fall."

"Do I want to open my heart to a teeny bopper?"
