Official Book Blurb:
3,000 miles, TWO secrets, ONE man who can change everything. Samantha Smiles and Renee Montgomery have been best friends for over a decade. They’ve shared laughs, secrets, and a mutual hatred for one person: Tristan Montgomery, Renee's older brother. He was the guy every girl wanted, and every guy wanted to be, and it wasn't uncommon they'd befriend his little sister just to get closer to him. Which was exactly how Samantha became Renee’s saving grace. She was the only girl Renee could trust not to fall in love with her older brother. Until the one night Samantha spent with him alone, leaving her questioning everything she’d ever known about the blond headed heart-throb. Years later, Renee asks Samantha to be her maid of honor. After being one-upped by her boyfriend's career, and with no other option, Samantha is forced to drive cross-country with the focus of their teenage ire. He was her first kiss. Her only secret. Can Samantha survive the trip cross-country with the reckless Tristan Montgomery? The guy who did what he wanted, whenever he wanted, without worry for tomorrow? Or will she discover a different side of him. One that’s sweet, funny, and maybe a little bit vulnerable. And fall completely and helplessly in love for the first time in her adult life with the one man who could cause her to lose her best friend forever?
My Thoughts:I didn’t really enjoy this, I mean it passed the time, and it was a bit of harmless fluff, but the protagonist was just unlikeable. She didn’t feel anything romantically for Steven, yet she had a SIX-year relationship with him and strung him along for that long and moaned about him letting HER down all the time when it was obvious he was trying to build a life and future for them. Then the text!! With not even a follow-up phone call which a six-year relationship would have deserved! Hmmmm not a nice person yet we are supposed to follow her story, her tears and feel sorry for her, worry about her and root for her to get the guy! Nope sorry! Tristan wasn’t the bad guy either, yes he could have expressed himself a little bit more, and there would have been no confusion over a few matters, but then I suppose there would have been no story at all (would that have been a bad thing?) And did the author not have any proofreaders, there were so many typos! A guy called Devon, one paragraph later was called Devin and then toward the end ‘vulnerably was a sign of weakness!’ I think you’ll find that it’s ‘vulnerability!’ and that’s just two examples! I except the odd typo in a book but the amount that was in this book was unacceptable and made it hard to read!
