Disappointing

This book seemed like a 3 star story for most of it. An alright, albeit entirely forgettable, romance story. However, what was going on with that ending?!?!!! That brought it down a star with a bang. It’s like the author crammed what should have been a whole book into the last hour and you are left feeling completely dissatisfied and with so many questions. Definitely not a ‘happy ever after’, but it’s barely even a ‘happy for now’. There should be a few chapters at least after that point to tie it up. I don’t think it’s part of a series but it feels like it must be because it makes no sense for it to be like that. Maybe the series will continue following other characters and you’ll find out what these guys are up to.

Simple and Realistic

This is a slow-paced, intricate, intimate and realistic love story. It doesn't rush into anything, including the fact that they don't particularly like each other initially, when you kind of think - having read the blurb - that they will. That makes this book so realistic so intriguing and so enjoyable. It wouldn't be a J. J. book without a plot twist, and of course, you don't see it coming! You really don't!

This is another wonderful book. It's a standalone, but if she ever wrote a sequel I'd get it in a heartbeat. Enjoy!

The fight between art and science

Who better to console you than the boyfriend of the woman your boyfriend ran away with?

Except he is a doctor and thrives on science and you are an artist that sees the world in abstract color.

This book was push and pull and heart break and healing. I absolutely loved it. Eli and Gwen had a relationship that is so true to life and not over the top romantic. More realistic and I appreciated that.

Veronica Pace is amazing. She was perfect for the quirky Gwen. And Fred Blogs was a great Eli. This story is told through dual narration and not duet, which is most definitely my preference.

Definitely 5 star and credit worthy.

OMG Dumped at the altar!!! And the bride runs away with your boyfriend. SMH

OMG I can't imagine what it would feel like to be left at the alter! Even just as bad I can't imagine what it would feel like to be one of the guest at that wedding and your boyfriend is who the bride leaves with! That is the premise of the story Eli is the groom that was left at the alter. And Gwen is the girlfriend of the man the bride ran off with. These two have a unique relationship because of that. These to find in each other what they should've had with their original partners. These two eventually become friends. After not liking each other very much. They both find out that they have more in common than that one big embarrassing moment and they eventually fall in love. Beautiful story nicely told with a HEA ending. I totally recommend the story to you.
