I wasn’t expecting to find you. The night was only supposed to be a celebration for my friend, but I couldn’t stop my heart, or body, from being drawn to you.
Then I got to know you, and you chipped away every wall I’d built around my heart.
You don’t know how many times I found reasons to talk to you. To see you.
It has to stop.
There’s distance between us I can’t control.
Damn you and your dimple for being so irresistible.
I wish I wasn’t so Gone for You.
I knew I wouldn’t be able to let you go the night you walked into my bar. Everything in me screams to keep you close.
I’m ready to move forward, to stop making excuses to see you, but I know you need more time.
You’ve created this distance between us to protect your heart, but you have to know it’s safe with me.
The moments you give me aren’t enough.
I want you forever and I’ll stop at nothing to make it happen.
After all, I’m so Gone for You.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
Oh my happy heart. Gone For You was ridiculously addicting. So good that I read it in a day. From the first comical meeting, I knew I was going to be rooting for Liv (and Ethan too).
I liked Liv. A lot. She was smart and witty and scared. The relationships in her past had left her burned and skeptical to give love a try again. But the she stumbled into Ethan's bar. Ethan- her brother's friend. The guy she met years ago that captivated her young heart. The guy who made her doubt all her fears. But Ethan wasn't without his own demons. However, a lifetime of loss didn't make him shy away from Liv. He handled her with care. He knew she needed it. But he had needs too. And the biggest one was a future with her. In his home and heart.
There was more than one revelation that rocked Liv to her core as the story unfolded. But they only proved to show her how right her and Ethan were for one another. And Ethan had some making up to do too. Thankfully, he had Owen and Rex to help him wake up and see the error of his ways.
Gone For You was smartly written, funny, steamy and a fresh take on the brothers friend, second-chance romance. And though the chemistry between Ethan and Liv was instant the build of the relationship was nice and slow. The entire cast of characters that Jennifer Van Wyk crafted for this series played a part in getting these two to fight for what they wanted. And I can't wait to see what is in store for this crew next.
