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…
If I have the time and patience like some of my amazing fellow reviewers who used GIF right here would be one of something exploding - and that explosion would be my emotions.
Reading the description of this book I knew it was going to affect me I just didn't know how, Books that deal with a death or illness are something if written write will really effect me and I mean that in the best way possible - If a book can make you feel and not just entertain you then you are onto a winner and let me tell you this book effected me.
Cassie and Josh where the poster children for young love, he was the sports star and son of the local mayor and she was the girl 'from the other side of the tracks' living with her grandmother - You couldn't really get two people more different but its true what they say opposites do attract and in a fact paced relationship fuelled by young love they married in a shot gun ceremony only to go their separate ways not long after.
Fast foward 6 years and things have changed dramatically Cassie is still living with her grandmother but is now caring for her - I really connected with Cassie not only is she spending her time looking after her Grandmother but she also has a secret, the baby she was supposed to have but miscarried she actually gave away to give Josh the future he was destined to have, Personally I don't agree with keeping a secret that huge but I can see and understand why she did it and who knows what would happen if I was in the situation.
Josh is now set to be engaged to the daughter of a politician who has just filed for divorce from Cassie - But what will happen when she flies to the UK and they meet again, will sparks fly or will the truth ruin everything between them and what they have so far achieved?
Oh did I also mention there is a hot British Bartender in the Mix? Mhmm I would body shot with him - but then again I would body shot with Josh BOOK SLUT AND PROUD.
This was a really enjoyable read and I highly recommend it!
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.
