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.
Loved this book, finished it in a day! Although the word crotch was abused, I could not put this book down!
My only love
Harper and Nick run into one another at their siblings wedding. Yes, you heard that right. Her sister is marrying his brother. It is a weird situation all around.
Harper is begging her sister to stop getting married. To wait and see how things go. They have not known each other long. It worries Harper, since for her sister it is her 3rd marriage already.
Nick admits to her he still loves her. Even when she brings a soon to be ex-boyfriend to the shindig with her. He saves her when tragedy strikes, and she realizes that her feeling for him may still be there.
Nick and Harper married young themselves, and had a misunderstanding that grand slammed its way into a divorce. If only they had a good example, or strength and trust in one another - they would have made it.
This visit gets prolonged since, she cannot get home and has to road-trip it with Nick or wait several days for a flight. They seem to get along pretty well and it helps smooth over some ruffled feathers on the way back. I enjoyed the character development and I am glad how it turns out.
This is one of the best romance books I have ever read. Loved the characters and their past seemed so relatable and real. Not to mention clever humor and a well developed romance. A must read!
