Before you get down on bended knee…
…you should be pretty darn sure the answer will be yes. For ten years, Connor O'Rourke has been waiting for Jessica Dunn to take their on-again, off-again relationship public, and he thinks the time has come. His restaurant is thriving, she's got her dream job at Blue Heron Vineyard—it's the perfect time to get married.
When he pops the question, however, her answer is a fond but firm no. If it ain't broke, why fix it? Jess has her hands full with her younger brother, who's now living with her full-time, and a great career after years of waitressing. What she and Connor have is perfect: friends with an excellent benefits package. Besides, with her difficult past (and reputation), she's positive married life isn't for her.
But this time, Connor says it's all or nothing. If she doesn't want to marry him, he'll find someone who does. Easier said than done, given that he's never loved anyone but her. And maybe Jessica isn't quite as sure as she thinks…
Never giving up
Another Blue Heron story to melt your heart. It is a roller coaster of a ride for Connor and Jessica. Their story had me holding my breath in true Kristan Higgins fashion. I didn't let it out until the last page. She likes to keep you on the edge begging for the happily ever after.
Connor and Jessica's on again off again relationship is exhausting but worth the effort. Their childhoods, their parents and their close bonds with their siblings effect their interactions with each other and their family and friends. Appearances by the Holland family, Jeremy and the rest the town keep you current on their lives as well.
I had to read the last two chapters twice!
My favorite author let me down this time. So boring and didn't even want to finish. Totally lost my interest.:. As it feels like the author did, too.
