Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.
Be somebody’s hero.
That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.
My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.
I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.
And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.
Focus. Resolve. Determination.
But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.
One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.
Smart. Charming. Beautiful.
Rory changed everything.
Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.
Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.
And with one single incident, I fly off course.
Author Meghan Quinn is a genius at romantic comedy but she shows time and again, and reminds us with this book that she is just as talented with a serious book. This isn’t a light book, but it will snag you from the very beginning and you will willingly hop on this emotional roller coaster as you get to know Colby, get to know why Colby is the way he is, and you meet Rory and want to be friends with her. And I fell in love with Colby’s grandfather. I wish I had one like him. Then the book takes a turn I didn’t see coming, and I’ll be straight up with you, it leaves you with a cliffhanger where you want to yell, “WTF?!!”
But I trust Meghan Quinn. I trust her to drag me off the ledge when I get the second half of the duet and I trust her to leave me whole once again when I’ve finished reading part II.
