Divorce attorney Harper James can't catch a break. Bad enough that she runs into her ex-hubby, Nick, at her sister's destination wedding, but now, by a cruel twist of fate, she's being forced to make a cross-country road trip with him. And her almost-fiancé back at home is not likely to be sympathetic.
Harper can't help that Nick has come blazing back into her life in all of his frustratingly appealing, gorgeous architect glory. But in Nick's eyes, Harper's always been the one. If they can only get it right this time, forever might be waiting—just around the bend.
Higgins gives likable divorce attorney Harper James a second chance at love in this funny, poignant romance. Harper is horrified when her stepsister, Willa, announces that she's marrying the brother of Harper's ex-husband, Nick Lowery. Harper and Nick married young, and while their relationship quickly flamed out, the spark between them never really died. Due to a travel snafu after Willa's wedding, Harper and Nick are forced to journey across the country together. Soon, Harper is examining the reasons their marriage failed, her unresolved feelings for Nick, and her abandonment issues. Harper's jaded views on love and marriage add both humor and pathos, as do several secondary characters struggling with their own relationship troubles. Readers will be cheering for Harper all the way to the cutesy rom-com ending.

Enjoyable, Quick Read
Kristan Higgins is on of my favorite romance authors. I've read all of her books so far and enjoyed this one as well.
I liked how Harper and Nick were flawed in their own ways that lead to the end of their marriage. It was hard at first accepting Harper's reasons for her inability to allow anyone to be close to her, but seeing her resolve her issues with her mom and hence her dad and Beverlee was satisfying.
I did find it a bit convenient at the end that Nick was already on the island when she finally decided to go fight for him. I would've liked to see a little bit more build up, so it felt rushed to me but seeing as that the book was at 400+ pages at that point, I think the author was ready to finish.
All and all it was enjoyable and I'm looking forward to the next book.
Loved this book, finished it in a day! Although the word crotch was abused, I could not put this book down!
This is by far my favorite Kristan Higgins book! I have read most of her books and none of them top this one. This book made me laugh and cry. I absolutely love Harper and Nick. They have amazing chemistry and they are so funny together. Pick this book up, you will not be disappointed.
