Synopsis

Nobody ever said life was easy…

People pleaser, Jane Skylar wants nothing more than to earn her art degree, start her life, and bask in the bliss of living with her boyfriend. 

But things don’t always go as planned…

Struggling with her creative side, Jane finds herself in turmoil, often confiding in her roommate – another, more talented art student, Keith Hale. Keith just so happens to be her boyfriend’s older, brooding brother. After a devastating breakup, Jane turns to Keith for comfort. But when the lines blur between roommate and lover, Jane’s life becomes more complicated than ever before.

When Keith’s past comes back to haunt him, their lives all get turned upside down, forcing the truth to surface. Now Jane must fight for what she wants–even if it hurts everyone she loves.

*It’s a standalone*

This was the authors second book published, but the first book I read. I absolutely adored this story! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review back in July and I loved every single aspect of the story from the cover to the last words on the page. Although this is considered to be a standalone novel I am super excited to read the second book in the series and can’t wait to start seeing details about it! I recommend checking this book out especially since you can’t beat the price at $0.99!

Synopsis

The last thing Vaughan Hewson expects to find when he returns to his childhood home is a broken hearted bride in his shower, let alone the drama and chaos that comes with her.

Lydia Green doesn’t know whether to burn down the church or sit and cry in a corner. Discovering the love of your life is having an affair on your wedding day is bad enough. Finding out it’s with his best man is another thing all together. She narrowly escapes tying the knot and meets Vaughan only hours later.

Vaughan is the exact opposite of the picture perfect, respected businessman she thought she’d marry. This former musician-turned-bartender is rough around the edges and unsettled. But she already tried Mr. Right and discovered he’s all wrong-maybe it’s time to give Mr. Right Now a chance.

After all, what’s wrong with getting dirty?

If you’ve read Kylie Scott’s Stage Dive Series then you know just how amazing her writing style is. This story starts off with a runaway bride who leaves her fiancé at the alter when she discovers his affair…with his best man. Sneaking into a house near by she plans to hide out from her fiancé or should I say ex-fiancé’s family. What she didn’t plan on was Vaughan Hewson discovering her hiding away in his shower. Since I don’t want to give away too much of the story that is all I will tell you about the beginning. However, I will say that we get to see a few of our Stage Dive buddies when they make a brief appearance! 🙂
