Summary

Fire captain Carson Sullivan swore off love long ago. After the love of his life broke his heart and left him, he gave up on the idea of commitment and settled for the playboy lifestyle. He’s a devoted son, a loyal friend, and a dedicated firefighter. That’s all he needs. Until the one woman with the power to light a fire in his heart walks back into his life bringing with her the memories of heartache he thought he'd buried. 

Sloan Thomas left Golden Beach with a shattered heart and a big secret. After the death of her grandfather brings her home, she decides a fresh start is exactly what she needs. But first love never dies, and Carson Sullivan isn’t a man easily forgotten. Now they’re left with the remnants of a life not lived and the possibility of so much more.

Remnants

This is the perfect second chance love story. The pain these two went through because of a few different misunderstandings is heartbreaking to listen to. To see the hits keep coming even when you think you know what’s going on kept me on my toes the whole book. I wasn’t able to put this book down it was written and narrated so well. Definitely a must read!

Sweetly Sappy

Sloan struggles with emotions as she moves into her grandfather's house. He left it to her when she passed away. Moving into his house will force her to face a past she ran away from. Sully couldn't believe that Sloan had returned after all this time. He holds many emotions and resentments about their relationship. So does she. I really enjoyed this book. It was very sweet and very sappy. I felt connected to the characters in the book. Especially one that I won't talk about because bringing him up will create a lot of spoiler type content in my review. I try to keep spoilers out. It's definitely a feel good type of book. I didn't realize this was the sixth book in a series until after I'd started the book. I'll have to track down the first five. The only thing I really had an issue with was that most of the time the secondary characters were more in the background than anything. I feel like they should have been in the story a bit more. I also feel like there were scenes in the book that could have been drawn out a bit more. There were others that could have been explained better too. All in all this was a beautiful story. It was very sweet and frustrating. It's a story that brings hope and warm feelings. It's just an amazing story. I loved it. I fully recommend.

Bittersweet Romance

Well here’s a story of what being rubbish at communication deals you in life! Kim Loraine certainly made this a rollercoaster of emotions and guessing! Will they? Won’t they? With loads of twists and turns and unexpected plot changes, Such a strong storyline and if you ever wanted to bash 2 peoples heads together!!
Narration was great! Zachary Webber and Lacy Laurel we’re perfect (I actually thought there were 3 narrators) The characterisation was fantastic.
A great listen that had me hooked!
Definitely recommend by me.

Sully & Sloan!

I have been waiting for Sully's story, and finally get my chance to hear it! This second chance romance stole my heart. Carson and Sloan were high school sweethearts. Circumstances and poor communication tore them apart, and left both broken. Now that Sloan is back in Golden Beach, will she and Sully reconcile? I love their story. It's not an easy journey for them to find their way back and their struggle tugged at my heart. Yes, I was frustrated at times, angry and caught up in their drama, but it was a . So much miscommunication and speculation took us on the emotional roller coaster and finished the series with a beautiful ending. I am so sad to see it end! Kim Loraine is one of my favorites, and this contemporary series is one I have thoroughly enjoyed.

The narration of this book is wonderful. With Zachary Webber as Sully, we get his pain and emotional turmoil so clearly and can feel his love shining through. Lacy Laurel gives us Sloan with her hesitancy and push-pull with Sully. I loved the way their voices compliment each other how the feels just come through. This is a great team to end the series with bringing the culmination of Golden Beach together and giving me all the feels and love.

Loved it!

This was a fabulous 2nd chance romance. I loved the characters and their Chemistry. I found the characters very relatable and easy to fall in love with. I felt for them and their journey. Kim has this way of making you fall in love yet still ripping tears from you sooner or later. I loved it.

Narration was great. Lacy and Zachary gave a fabulous performance. They add so much feeling to their narrations. I was quite impressed with the editing and splicing of the narrations. you would never have guessed the narrators were not in the same room. This was a beautiful performance.

Sully and Sloan!

Kim Loraine has brought us Sully's (aka Carson Sullivan) story in Remnants. I love how he and Sloan reconnected after 15 years. Second chances at love are so rare, and with your soulmate its even better. This listen is full of so many emotions and endearing characters. I love the glimpses into other couples from Golden Beach, the sweetness Sully has for his mom, Zeus the dog, and the shocking twist in this book! I won't give away spoilers, but I never saw that coming. Both Zachary Webber and Lacy Laurel were brilliant in this book. I loved their distinguishable voices for various characters from Sloan, Sully, to the little kids, the British new neighbors, and everyone else. They brought them all to life with their voices and emotions. I could envision so many details in this book. I loved it! This may be my favorite Golden Beach book.

Great 2nd chance romance!

This story is fantastic! What more is there to say besides that? The drama of a 2nd chance romance is always the best and Remnants takes it to a whole new level. I ended the book with a smile on my face and a happy sigh coming off my lips. Kim Loraine did an amazing job with this book!

The narration was perfect! The duet with Lacy Laurel and Zachary Webber was done perfectly. It was seamless and made you feel you were right there with the two.

I'm Ready For The Beach Are You?

Sloan had me wanting to listen to her story again while I either sit in a bookstore or at the library. Even better if there was a beach close by. Her story was one that you'll love to get lost in. And it doesn't hurt that we have a couple of narrators that I love to listen to. They did a great job at bringing this story to life.

Sully seems to fit his name - he seems a little sullen. He lets us see that he has a soft spot but doesn't want others to know. His past is a sore spot but it's come back to bite him in the a**. I liked how Mr. Webber and Ms. Laurel told us the story as a duet. It makes the experience more pleasant. As if we are actually hearing the characters talk to each other. All that was missing was the smell-a-vision.

Ms. Loraine creates characters that the reader can relate to. Each scene moves seamlessly as the story unfolds. She also will make you sad - especially if you are taking care of an elderly parent. There's no way you can't feel sorry for those involved. Our author includes a mystery but doesn't let it overtake everything else that's going on. Listening to a rekindling romance was a treat - just needed to get my chocolate.

I found myself wanting to know more about The Golden Beach series. Good thing that I realized that this can be considered a standalone because i have a lot of catching up to do - other people I want to meet and get to know. After enjoying listening to this one, I don't know that I would read the book. Having someone read to me added to my enjoyment and I think I'd like that to continue. And listening to Mr. Webber do a British accent - fan self.

I voluntarily reviewed an Audiobook copy of this book.

3.75 stars overall but (5🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 for Zachary Webber)

I enjoyed this book for the most part. Zachary Webber is always a super star and this was my first book with Lacy Laurel in a duet fashion. I like duet narration although this one was a tad bit jilted. The story was solid and the characters were defined so it’s hard to say what was missing but something didn’t bring it full circle for me. Overall it was a good book and fun story with just a slightl component missing to make it all that.

An angsty, realistic, second chance romance

Remnants is the most recent addition to the Golden Beach series, which consists of a total of 8 interconnected books/novellas. I have not read any of the other books in this series, but that did not affect my enjoyment of this book at all. During the course of the book, there are several couples that make appearances. I could tell that they were featured in other books in this series, but I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything by not having read the other books. Remnants is a second chance romance between two characters that have a 15 year history between them. Carson and Sloan were high school sweethearts who ended up breaking up after a stressful discovery and when Sloan's family moved to another state. Fifteen years later, Sloan moves back to Golden Beach, Virginia and moves into her deceased grandfather's home. Soon after she moves back, she has a run in with Carson. During the course of the book, the reader learns more about Sloan and Carson's relationship in high school and all of the factors that contributed to their break-up. The reader also sees the two of them trying to adjust to the presence of the other in a relatively small town where they continuously run into each other, eventually they try to navigate a new relationship without letting their past issues affect their present. Eventually, their avoidance of the past results in big blow-up between Carson and Sloan. The author does a great job of gradually revealing all of the issues between Sloan and Carson and revealing the truth about what really happened fifteen years ago. I have to admit that I didn't really expect the twists that occurred in this book. At times, I got frustrated with both Sloan and Carson because it seemed like it took them forever to really talk about what happened when they were teenagers. This book is written in 3rd person POV, from the perspective of both Sloan and Carson, in alternating sections. It also ends with a HEA and features an epilogue that takes place approximately 6 months after the last chapter. Overall, I really enjoyed following Sloan and Carson's journey back to each other. I recommend this book to anyone that is looking for an angsty, second chance romance with realistic characters. This audiobook features duet narration, which is becoming one of my favorite narration styles for audiobooks. Both narrators do a great job of narrating this book.

Amazing Second Chance to Love!

This is the book 6 in the Golden Beach Series. This is a second chance love, and I absolutely loved Sully (Carson) and Sloan's story. Both are complex characters. Their chemistry is really strong. How not to fall in love with Sully? Really! He's a firefighter, handsome, strong and protective. Sloan is a strong and beautiful woman. The storyline goes back and forth, from the past to the present, and is filled with angst, unpredictable twists and turns and so much love! I was hooked from the first page to the end. Lacy Laurel and Zachary Webber did an amazing job with this duet narration.

Angsty 2nd chance romance

Firefighter Captain, Carson ‘Sully’ Sullivan has only ever loved one woman...but she walked out of his life 15y ago. Now that she’s back, can he forgive the past hurt and become friends? Sloan Carmichael had to walk away from Carson all those years ago, except she thought that he would come after her...he never did. Now she’s back in Golden Beach to inherit her grandfather’s house and deciding to have a fresh start. She’s moved on with her life, after all she was married for a few years, but seeing Carson is a lot harder than she had anticipated. Can she make peace with her past and Carson?
We met Sully in earlier books and I was really looking forward to his story. There were so many emotional elements packed in this book that I was a sobbing mess! Yes, it’s that good and is worthy of many ‘relistens’!

Completely amazing narrators!!

There wasn't one thing I didn't love about this book! Honestly as the events unravelled through the story,my heart was shattering for Sully and Sloane . Each twist and turn brought such an emotional journey with these characters. The narration was phenomenal! Two of the most incredible narrators that make you just fall in love with the story even more!
