Emi has an issue that most of us have been able to relate to, at one time or another: a broken heart with unresolved issues. She thought that she had put that behind her, when she moved halfway across the country from Jack, the reason for the aforementioned broken heart. That is until her twin brother’s wedding, which happens to be to Jack’s little sister. Emi is now thrown in to a wedding party with Jack, in a bad bridesmaid’s dress, and to make matters worse, he is engaged to her arch enemy. What’s a girl to do? Get drunk, and hoof it to the nearest bar, of course! Enter Liam. Could he be the one to help Emi get over Jack? Does she really want to get over him at all?

Where to start?! You all know by now how I feel about romance, but this one worked for me. The pace was fast enough, and the characters engaging enough, that it didn’t drag me down in to the romance death spiral that some regular romances do. Brown did a wonderful job in character development, especially for a debut author. The characters were all well fleshed out, well rounded, and played off of one another very well. The plot was also very well thought out, and didn’t seem to lag much, if at all. It jumps back and forth between “present day” and before Emi and Jack’s break-up, but the time jump work’s in this case. It doesn’t give you whiplash, and isn’t confusing to follow. It’s well thought out, and gives a much needed backstory. Honestly, the only negative thing at all that I found were a couple of proofreading errors, which can (and does!) happen in any author’s book. It certainly wasn’t enough to detract from the enjoyment of the book. If you’re looking for a fun contemporary romance and/or a great beach read, give this one a try!

It releases tomorrow, so you can pre-order here:
