Why did I pick this book: I participated in the blog tour hosted by AToMR Tours. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)
Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I read it every free chance I had because I wanted to know what happened.
Cassie and Josh were high school sweethearts, childhood friends, and soon-to-be ex-spouses. Cassie hid a secret from Josh for 6 years and now it must be revealed. Along with that secret, many other memories and feelings are revealed as well. This review will not be very detailed because I don’t want to give away any of the major plot points. With that said, here we go.
Cassie is strong. She doesn’t seem like it all of the time but she is. What she did for Josh, her grandmother, and all those she truly cares about is amazing and commendable. What she did is also unforgivable in some respects. I don’t blame Josh for feeling the way he does. Josh is intelligent and trying to get out of his small-town background and away from Cassie, his true love that broke his heart. She breaks it even more when she surprises him in England. His reactions are not the best. His actions towards those he loves are not the best nor well-intentioned. He loves Cassie though – always has, always will.
This review is difficult because while the book kept me interested and I wanted to see how it ended, I can’t say much without ruining the whole story. Also, it had a cliffhanger ending! WHY????? I didn’t need that. I want to know what happens.
Would I recommend it: Yes, it was a good read.
Will I read it again: I will not but I will read the next book in the series. And I will probably have to read Ms. Croslydon’s other series, The Oxford Trilogy.
About the book: A girl who needs to undo the past.
A boy who wants to forget it.
In love, there’s no way back.
At high school in Steep Hill, Kansas, Cassie O’Malley and Josh MacBride were the poster couple for quarterback/cheerleader romance until they starred in their own tale of teen pregnancy. No need to say: their shotgun wedding was low-key. But when there was no baby anymore, they went their separate ways.
Five years later, Josh has breezed through Georgetown and is about to finish his post-grad degree at Oxford University. He is set to join a lobbying group on Capitol Hill, owned by his new fiancée’s father. For Josh, the sky is now the limit… only he must first take care of a tiny legal matter: technically, he’s still married to the girl who broke his heart.
Meanwhile, Cassie has been waiting tables in Steep Hill to pay for her sick grandmother’s care. On the day of the old lady’s funeral, Cassie is served with two sets of papers. Josh is asking for a divorce. Her heart squeezes, but, well, he moved on a long time ago. But the second envelope shakes Cassie to the core. So, for the first time, she leaves Kansas and heads to good ol’ England.
There, Cassie finds that Josh has not just “moved on,” he’s freakin’ engaged to some blue-blooded heiress. The feelings Cassie had buried deep rush back to her. But no matter if he keeps thrusting the divorce papers under her nose, she needs him to save the only person she loves more than Josh, more than life itself…
About the author: Marion’s parents are terribly disappointed with her…
They wanted her to have a serious job, providing financial stability and social standing. For years, she really tried to make them happy; she studied hard, got into top schools, graduated with honors and found a high-achieving job.
But deep down, Marion was miserable. She never wanted to be a top executive, brokering deals in New York, London or Tokyo. Marion wanted to be… a ROMANCE WRITER. She wanted to spend her days in that good ol’ tracksuit of hers, in front of her laptop, popping down Oreos like there was no tomorrow. She wanted to fall in love with a different man each time she wrote the first line of a new book (while being happily married to the most handsome man in Great Britain).
That’s exactly what Marion does these days, and it makes her incredibly happy. She loves to share these happy vibes, talk book crush, fictional boyfriends and sexual chemistry with like-minded people. And because she spends most of her days on her own deep inside her writing cave, you are welcome to come and say “hello” from time to time. Just to make sure she doesn’t sink into insanity.
Her friends, family and arch-enemies (there are quite a few) will be forever grateful for your help.
