He was my everything.
I loved him.
For over twenty years.
And everyone knew, including him.
But he never loved me back.
So I moved on.
Now he's back, and wants to make me his.
He's everything I've ever wanted.
I should be happy.
But there's one problem.
Review by Lorena
Okay, this book really had me with the blurb and I just had to read it and boy I have to say that I am sooooooo glad that I did because I absolutely loved it!!
Kacey, Jake and Heath -- what a combination right!! Kacey has been in head over heels in love with Jake since she was a little kid but she was just that, a kid so Jake only saw her as a little sister. Kacey hung out all the time with Jake's sister and would swoon every time she would see him. She would embarrass herself in front of this guy at all times but it still wouldn't stop her from loving him. He found everything she did cute but never thought in a million years that she would be THAT much in love with him.
Jake has always been the good big brother. He looked out for his little sister after his grandparents did and he has been working his butt off to help get her through college and paying off his grandparent's debt. He lives and breathes the oil rig and has no time for himself. He only visits here and there and now it's come that Kacey must move on and forget about Jake.
Except, Jake kissed a girl once at a party and he was drunk out of his rear end and all he remembers is that she was blonde. He's been going crazy trying to find out who this blonde girl is. Well he finally comes to find out that that blonde happened to have been Kacey (not her natural color) so she went back to being her redhaired self again.
Now that Jake knows that Kacey is his mystery girl, he wants a chance with her but Kacey has moved on and is now engaged (oh no!!)
So what will Kacey do??? Will she marry their long time friend Heath -- he is super hot too but for some reason she just can't shake Jake out of her system no matter how hard she tries.
Can she really move on and marry Heath or will she welcome Jake with open arms?
This book had my gaze attached to my device throughout the whole time. I loved the concept of the story and I really love how Kacey became a strong-willed girl who wasn't going to jump at any chance she got with Jake, she really had him work it!!!!
This book will make you swoon and make you want to bite your nails because you won't know who to choose since they're both freaking hot and yummy and you will want to have them both --- ahhhhh what to do, what to do!!
Total 4.5 star review for this awesome book, now I must go back and read her other books as this is the first book I read from this author.
