A USA TODAY bestselling second chance romance about a young woman who reunites with a soulful artist after their magical one-night stand, from the bestselling author of Swear on this Life and Before We Were Strangers.
Charlotte has spent her twenties adrift, searching for a spark to jump-start her life and give her a sense of purpose. She’s had as many jobs as she’s had bad relationships, and now she’s feeling especially lost in her less-than-glamorous gig at a pie-and-fry joint in Los Angeles, where the uniforms are bad and the tips are even worse.
Then she collides—literally—with Adam, an intriguing, handsome, and mysterious painter. Their serendipitous meeting on the street turns into a whirlwind one-night stand that has Charlotte feeling enchanted by Adam’s spontaneity and joy for life. There’s promise in both his words and actions, but in the harsh light of morning, Adam’s tune changes, leaving Charlotte to wonder if her notorious bad luck with men is really just her own bad judgment.
Months later, a new relationship with Seth, a charming baseball player, is turning into something more meaningful, but Charlotte’s still having trouble moving past her one enthralling night with Adam. Why? When she searches for answers, she finds the situation with Adam is far more complicated than she ever imagined. Faced with the decision to write a new story with Seth or finish the one started with Adam, Charlotte embarks on a life-altering journey, one that takes her across the world and back again, bringing a lifetime’s worth of pain, joy, and wisdom.
Omg I couldn’t put it down! I loved it so much!! Amazing read
Leading Lady Hard to Root For
Charlotte is initially a hard character to really like or root for. She seems selfish, dismissive and low key not very nice. But she grew on me over time. I’m not sure Renee always does the best job with making the female protagonist as compelling at the male protagonist in her stories. Definitely not her best work IMO
