Wearing the nicest suit I own, I stand in the very back with a flask full of whiskey in my inner pocket. I put on a brave face as I watch her walk down the aisle.
Because it’s too late.
I refuse to be the bastard who makes her cry on her wedding day, but I’m dying to tell her what I’ve always known. She’s my best friend, but she doesn’t realize she owns my f*cking heart and soul, too.
Each step down that aisle takes her farther away from me and brings her closer to him, forcing me to face the truth: I’ve fallen in love with someone who can’t be mine. If she’d just turn around, maybe she’d realize I love her more than he ever could.
I won’t ruin her perfect day, but my broken heart begs me to try and convince her.

Amazing, honestly couldn’t put it down and was so touched with the way the book progressed and the story came together
Review: Choose Me
Choose Me by R.C. Boldt is a standalone second-chance contemporary romance. Told in a unique way, beginning with just before the wedding of Magnolia to someone else and Hollis leaving before the nuptuals begin. Then we are taken through the years of their friendship from their first meeting and leading up to that moment at the beginning of the book.
From best friends at eight years old to teenagers dealing with a difference in social class that has never been an issue for either of them but it most certainly has for both of their mothers. Being told throughout his whole friendship that he is not worthy of Magnolia, Hollis ends up believing this to his soul. Magnolia is too much of a yes-girl where her mother is concerned to dare to go to far beyond her mothers wishes so despite her attraction to Hollis, the boundary never gets pushed. A slow build, somewhat painful at times with the way Hollis was put down, especially by his own mother, but the ending is happy and hard won. Angsty and emotional and not overly sexual (most of the book is young kids to teenagers to new adults). Enjoy!
Just expect not to want to put it down
Y’all this book is so good! I literally finished it in 3 days. If it had been a weekend when I started it would have been 2. But yea it’s a page turner because you are constantly waiting for what you want to happen, and when it does you get crazily disappointed and then the story just turns and throws you around. If you like love stories, this one is for you
