Why? Why does he have to magically appear in my life? Moving back to Binghamton, I thought about the possibility of maybe running into him, but I thought it unlikely, something that would never really happen.
Boy, was I wrong.
What a sick joke life is playing on me.
Aaron Walters, the boy who broke me into pieces is my neighbor.
I can’t fathom the impact I feel already.
Seeing him in hip-hugging jeans and a tight, plain shirt did a number on me. It kept me up all night as memories of what we used to have flooded my mind.
The way he used to kiss my neck.
The way I felt so protected in his arms.
Too bad his arms couldn’t protect me from his devastating, heart-breaking self.
And hell, he looked good. Too good.
He’s always been tall with handsome features and a chiseled jaw, but now he’s bulked up to the point that I could see his abs flexing under his shirt, the same shirt that stretched over his biceps.
But it wasn’t his muscles or handsome features that once again made my heart ache, it was those eyes. So bright, so blue, so kind, but still so sad. It reminded me of the first day I met him, of the day he stole my heart from every other man on the market.
Broken, unsure, yet yearning for love. It was all there, and like experiencing a moment of déjà vu, I was transported back into a time when I felt invisible, like I could conquer anything with him at my side.
Once again, I was wrong.
Six million stars for this one by Meghan Quinn! I had to break this book up into different days (I did have to sleep – stupid day job). But after diving through almost 80% of the book today, I can say this might be one (if not THE) favorite of Meghan Quinn’s books. At least in my opinion.
My one overarching thought as I read this: I’m SO glad book bestie Julie (aka Ginger Snaps) read this book before me so I could talk it over with her as I read it! And I might have even PM’d Meghan Quinn herself and telling her that I love this book! And Aaron! And everything about this book!
A quick rundown for those that want to read a reviewer’s synopsis: Amelia gets a call home because her dad wasn’t doing well. So she packs up her life away from her live-in boyfriend to move home and be close to her dad. One snag; her neighbor is her ex boyfriend and unknowingly, her current BF’s brother. Imagine all the craziness.
And that’s all I’m saying about that. This book made me laugh, snort, tear up and fall so far into love with Aaron it’s not even funny. This book had a personal link for me but I won’t say what in this review. You will recognize some of Aaron’s friends from previous MQ books, so you get to see them again and their hilarity.
Totally a book I will re-read and always recommend to people when they need a truly good story.
