First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes a—
Hold up. You’re joking right? As if life works off a neat little list like that, moving down, checking things off before jumping to the next task. We’re not married. We’re not lovers. Hell, we’re hardly even friends. Noah Wilson isn’t exactly “life partner” material, and he sure as hell isn’t “father material”. He’s my older brother’s best friend, and has been off limits, sworn off, locked in the highest tower and out of reach since we met over ten years ago. With his devilish good looks, tattoos, motorcycle, and trail of broken hearts and tears, I’ve had good reason to stay away from the bad boy my mother warned me about.
Until one night. One stupid, regrettable night that changed both of our lives forever. And now I only have nine months to decide our fate, to see if Noah’s rebel heart is capable of anything more than a one night stand.
This isn’t a love story. This is a life story. And life doesn’t go according to plan.
This is a really great new adult romance! And, being the first book I have read by the author I know I will be picking up more of her books in the future (as well as reading the ones of hers that I already own). With that being said, I found this one to be very sweet and charming. This is especially true as the books hero; Noah, is first shown to be a tattooed bad boy that loves to break hearts. However, instead of growing into the kind of man that uses women and disposes of them when he is done (like many romances show us), he ends up being with the woman he has always dreamed of and loves her fully and completely. The beauty in this is that the author makes it all feel so real to us readers. I absolutely loved this! What I also loved about this story is how the author portrays the character’s journey to love. Instead of rushing things they take their time and really get to know one another (even though they have rushed their relationship in other parts). So, if you’re looking for a fast paced and sweet read- one that will make you smile and swoon, I would surely recommend this one! It is definitely a story about finding love and going through the journey with a special someone even though life throws you curve balls!
