Heartbroken by her fiancé only days before their wedding, she finds herself needing to escape, needing to hide from reality. Though Alani knows that Ryan lives in Grand Forks, North Dakota, she never thought their paths would cross again while she is there. Their friendship changes to something more with a good night kiss. Needing to be with Ryan, she leaves her old life in New Jersey behind and moves halfway across the country. As they journey together in a new relationship Alani has to adapt to life in a new city, new job, as well as dealing with Ryan's ex-girlfriend Stephanie, who is waiting for the perfect moment to get Ryan back. But will her fiancé let Alani walk away from him without a fight? Will Alani's love for Ryan be enough for her to stay with him through turmoil? Or will Stephanie’s secret tear them apart?
I absolutely loved this book, it was a great read. There were so many twists and turns that there was never an oh I know what's coming next, because as soon as I thought I knew what was about to happen BAM something else happens to steer it again.This book is about a woman whose getting married and runs off for her bachelorette party, ends up meeting a guy that she has a great connection with, and they laugh, they dance, they flirt, but she doesn't cheat, but she just can't seem to forget him. Will she call off her wedding for him? Or will she just live with the fact that she has a thing for someone other than her husband?For a debut book this author has done such a good job with a romance, that isn't really your typical I met this guy and I am marrying him, the woman is already taken and finds a connection with someone else. Want to find out how it ends? Then you better grab it up while you can!I give this book 4.5 Stars
Excerpt“Ally baby please. I fucked up but please, I can do better. Please forgive me.” He begged “Marco, there is nothing between us anymore. I’m done. We are done. Shouldn’t you be off with Trish somewhere?” Her name was like bile in my mouth. “Ally it’s not like that with her, I was just scared.” I raised my hand to stop him; I didn’t want to go through this with him all over again. “Stop. Just Stop. There is nothing between us anymore Marco, please just leave.” I swallowed back any tears that were threating to show. Stepping back I closed the door and leaned my back on it, slowly sliding down to the ground. Inhaling deep I tried to calm my nerves and heard the flower arrangement being placed on the ground as Marco spoke. “I know you can still hear me Ally, and I want you to know that I’ll never give up on us. Never! You hear me? I fucked up. I know I did but I love you.” As the tears dripped from my eyes I wiped them away as quickly as I could. I wasn’t crying because I was sad. I was just so tired of repeating the past five years in my head and seeing it end like this. “Marco, please just leave me alone.” I shouted from behind the door
“I’ll always fight for you. I’ll find a way to make you mine again. Mark my words Alani, you will spend the rest of your life with me.”
