It's Simple by Michelle Richardson




It's Simple by Michelle Richardson 

Goodreads:
 
The general consensus is that relationships are easy to start but challenging to maintain. Although we may not think so, our choices ultimately determine the types of relationships we have. It's truly funny how after we've contributed to the chaotic state of the relationship, we hire therapists to fix us, to tell us it's not our fault when it typically is. The truth? Therapists don't fix us; they provide tools that guide us. Ultimately, we find the solutions ourselves and, for the most part, we really need to forget what we've heard. Relationships can be complicated, littered with challenges and that preventable thing called drama. Just ask Tia and Chase.
 
They met as teenagers. Upon graduation from college, things got complicated. Chase was drafted to the Los Angeles Lakers; Tia was offered a position in the Obama administration. Despite the geographical distance, Tia and Chase stayed together.
 
But how easy is it to make love last? It's simple-if we can be honest, forgiving, and patient with each other. Here's a unique look at a progressive couple and how their choices impact their journey; providing a truthful and sometimes painful look at real life scenarios and how two fiercely driven and stubborn lovers choose to handle them. Experience life from a different perspective.



Review:

When Tia and Chase were in high school, they had no idea that their young love would last forever. They went their separate ways during the college years, but time and distance proved no match for their love. While their lives and careers took them in two very different directions, they found comfort in the arms of each other and the strength to make their relationship work, no matter what obstacles they faced.

It's Simple was such a refreshing read. We all know that no relationship is free of the stress and strain of daily living. Often times people love one another but collapse under the pressure of life's challenges. Tia and Chase were different. They approached their relationship with an open mind, they accepted their flaws, without judgement. With the love and support of their family and friends, they weathered the storms and remained focused on what was important - each other.

I was so impressed by the way that they handled the difficulties in their relationship. I must say that this book gives renewed hope to romance! Although there is no promise of a problem free relationship, I am convinced that it is entirely possible to have a healthy one. Every chapter ends with a little something extra to help you in your own life, I thought that was a great touch! Hats off to Michelle Richardson for writing a fiction novel that read like a book of motivation. I loved it!
