Publisher:

Entangled Publishing, LLC

Goodreads Synopsis:

How far will one man go for the woman he’s loved since high school?

Jamie Kingston has been Brynn Chandler’s best friend since middle school. Only once was their friendship tested—when Brynn gave Jamie a single kiss. Since then, they’ve had an unspoken agreement never to cross that line again, and she’s ready to let go of the past and move on.

But Jamie has loved Brynn for as long as he can remember, and now that he’s ready to tell her, she has her sights set on someone else. Knowing this is his last chance, he asks Brynn to go on a two-week road trip. But their time alone brings old hurts to the surface, and Brynn has to decide if the one that got away lies at the end of the journey or if he’s been by her side all along.

Review:

*I was provided a copy by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

I know, you’re tired of reading this and I should have a permanent disclaimer somewhere but I read this book as a buddy read with Cristina @ My Tiny Obsessions so you should click HERE and read her review :).

Can I just start by talking about that gorgeous cover?? Look at that amazingness. This cover is beautiful and I’m really happy that I loved the story as much as I loved this amazing cover. I really like the best-friends fall in love kind of story but I liked this one even more because these two were already in love, for 10 years (okay, I don’t like the 10 years part that much but I’ll talk about that later). I really enjoyed this story and the characters. I loved to see Brynn and Jamie’s friendship. It was really great to see they helping each other and how they’ve been like this for almost 15 years. I really liked both Brynn and Jamie as characters and Jamie was kind of perfect. I want a best-friend like him (and a boyfriend too if it’s possible). Also, the side characters (and future main characters in the series) were amazing and this group of friends was goals. I also want a group of friends like this. I loved that the story was told in a dual POV. By now you know that I’m a sucker for dual POVs and I really enjoyed to see the story in both perspectives. This book was beyond cute and funny and I loved to see Brynn and Jamie’s roadtrip.

But, as I said before, I had a little problem with this book, I would get frustrated too easily. I couldn’t understand why Brynn and Jamie didn’t talk about them and how that lead them to a lot of problems that could have been avoided. These two had a big miscommunication problem and if I was their friend I would have locked them in an empty room a long time ago so they could have talked about them and everything that happened and I would only let them leave the empty room when they really talked.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a good contemporary story and while I had a little problem with this book I still can’t wait to read the next three books and get to know better Holly, Annie and Jeremy. If you enjoy these type of books you should give this one a try.
