An all new second chance love story by the New York Times Bestselling author of the
beloved Driven series.
It all started with the invitation. To my ex-fiance’s new wedding.
I should have ignored it. Thrown it away. Set it afire. But I didn’t. I replied.
With a plus one.
And then my assistant accidentally mailed it.
Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye.
When he showed up out of the blue ten years later, I should have known to steer clear of him. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex’s wedding. I should have never let him kiss me.
But I didn’t.
And now we’re left wondering if the pieces of the life we once shared still fit together somehow. First loves are hard to forget. The question is, do we want to forget? Or do we risk the chance and see what happens next?
I love a good second chance at love story and this one is on my short list of favorites I've read. I'm sure we've all had a temporary bout of insanity when confronted with an ex (although I've never received a wedding invite!), so it's understandable that Saylor filled out the RSVP card.
Let me back up a bit: how tacky is it with the whole wedding scenario to begin with? Who does that? I won't give up spoilers, so you'll have to read it to know what I'm talking about.
Hayes Whitley has been a friend to Saylor and her older brother Ryder since they were kids, and over time their relationship evolved to a romantic relationship, until Hayes rolled out to chase his dreams. Nothing wrong about that, except the way he did it was craptastic. So it's no wonder that Saylor isn't exactly a happy camper when he shows up a decade later.
Saylor reluctantly accepts Hayes' help once she realizes the level of treachery aimed her way on behalf of the ex-fiance's family. And that is when the story really begins to take off. As much as she wants to resist, the more time she spends with Hayes the more she imagines how it would be for them back in the real world. But Saylor's not the only one having those thoughts.
Hayes Whitley is positively swoon-worthy, and he realizes pretty quickly that he's never gotten over his feelings for Saylor, and spending that time with her has only intensified those feelings. If it wasn't clear to Saylor, he does everything he can to right the wrongs of the backlash aimed her way after the trip and the subsequent fallout. And the way he does it? A-MAZ-ING! I absolutely loved the 10-day countdown and the tweets back and forth between @HayesWhitOfcl and @SweetChks! Cheesy pick-up lines and all.
