A USA TODAY bestseller.
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward comes an epic standalone, friends-to-lovers story…with a jaw-dropping twist you won't see coming.
Skylar has been my best friend since childhood, but I secretly pine for her. One thing after another has kept us apart, and I've spent the last decade in fear of losing her forever.
Because of me, she left town. For years, I thought I'd never see her again.
But now she's back…and living with him.
I don't deserve her after everything I've put her through, but I can't live without her. This is my last chance, because she's about to make the biggest mistake of her life. I can see it her eyes: she doesn't love the man she's set to marry. She still loves me...which is why I have to stop her before it's too late.
A STANDALONE novel.

This book was so so sad!! But I loved every second of it. 100% worth reading
Loved it...but then...
I really like this author, I enjoy her other books, but I felt the need to comment on this one as it's very misleading. I was hooked from the beginning, great start and great characters, great story to be told, very real and easy to connect to...BUT the fact that the summary makes you believe Mitch did this huge horrendous act of betrayal or cruelty to Skylar is not what I picked up on. If anything, I fault Skylar.
Mitch is there for Skylar through her illness and through thin and thin, but when he tries to move on he can't really, even after Skylar orchestrated a fake date that she knew would get back to him, he still loves her, but when he needs her after finding out about Henry, she can't handle it and abandons him. I don't get that. I'm sure it would be hard to watch him go through everything with Charisma, but he wouldn't even have had to if she didn't break up with him in the first place. I'm trying hard not to spoil or reveal too much, but I had to say this because I enjoyed the book yes, but I didn't get why he had to prove he wouldn't hurt HER again when he did nothing but be there for her and show her how much he loved her. I get it makes a good story, but the spell the book had over me broke when this part occured because it just didn't make sense. Of course, people can suggest otherwise, but that's how I felt and had to say my two cents. Still love the author, really love 'Stepbrother Dearest' but this one just is a love/hate feeling.
Loved this book, the ups and the downs. Had me laughing and crying. Couldn't put it down.
