Once Rose Fisher makes a decision, that’s it. End of story.
Like when her ex, Patrick, dumped her out of the blue, then showed up with a super hot, tatted up sex kitten on his arm. Then it was over for good. The end. Poof. Dead to her. Except he was everywhere — down the hall, at the bar with their friends, worming his way into her dreams.
But with their friends paired off, they’re left alone more and more. Rose is determined to keep him friendzoned — doesn’t matter that he stares at her with a smolder that drops all panties in a ten foot radius. She’s over him, and she’ll prove it by getting back into the dating game, Patrick be damned.
Patrick Evans is no stranger to consequences. When your mother walks out, your dad drifts away. When you leave home, you’re on your own. And when you run away from the girl you love, you lose her. He finally has an opportunity to rebuild the bridge he burned, and it’s not one he’ll take for granted. But he’ll have to fight for her, even if it hurts. Even if it means he’ll walk away brokenhearted. Because deep down, he knows that she’s it for him.
The trick will be to get her to admit she feels it too.
REVIEW: This book had me laughing out loud at parts. I love a book that can me laugh and this one definitely did! Thankfully I was at home when I would start giggling otherwise I would be getting "The Look" from people.
Rose is trying to get over Patrick (Tricky) and the more she tries to get over him the more she realizes she doesn't want to. Patrick broke her heart but she didn't fight for them. She let him walk away.
Watching Rose go on her dates is hilarious. It's like a train wreck and you can't help but laugh at what she goes through, the guys she meets. (Makes me happy that I'm married and don't have to go through all of that!)
I literally gasped at one part of this book. It felt like my heart stopped. Once you read the book, I'm sure you'll know what part of the book I'm talking about. I was dumbfounded and was like WHAT??? WHY???? NO!!!!!
I love the interaction between all of the couples in the book. Since this is the first book that I've read by this author I will definitely be going back and reading the beginning of this series.
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom; she has three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife; even though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.
From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
