synopsis

Genevieve MacKenzie has her life completely under control. About to wed the charming Chief doctor at the local hospital, she’s an up-and-coming surgeon with everything she could ever want. Until an escape through the church window on the day of her wedding sends her life into a tailspin…and flings her right into her best friend’s arms.

When Wolfe catches his best friend falling out a window on her wedding day, he doesn’t ask questions. He whisks her away, determined to watch over her and discover the truth behind her desperate escape. But when his feelings turn more than platonic, he realizes he may risk his most important relationship in order to protect his damaged heart, and the woman he loves.

Can Genevieve and Wolfe’s friendship turn into something deeper—or is it already too late for true love?

review

“You haven’t asked why.”

Bride Genevieve gets a case of cold feet at the very last minute. She’s panicking and with her gut telling her to run, she does just that. Ditching her poor groom at the altar.

“Don’t need to.”

“Don’t you want to know?”

Her best friend, Wolfe, sees her less than graceful attempt and wastes no time to aid her in her escape plan. But what started out as just a quest to help Gen en maybe revive their friendship, turned into something much deeper. Something neither of them are really ready for.

“Hell, yes. You’re my best friend and I had no idea you were struggling. But you’re not ready. When you want to talk, I’ll be here.”

Just like with the rest of the series I really enjoyed myself while reading this book. It’s funny and romantic without losing that serious and emotional edge. And the characters are so relatable. I do have to say that while you can read it as a standalone, you’re going to be lost character wise if you haven’t read the previous books. As a lot of characters from the previous books make a reappearance.

Gen is the good girl with such a bubbly personality and she always follows up on the decisions she makes. Even when the odds aren’t in her favor or when things aren’t going as she has expected. I can’t believe how much her fiancee attempted to change her, good thing she decides to choose herself. But at the same time she’s doubting herself, for what she considers, taking the coward’s way out. That’s just not in her nature.

It doesn’t help that everyone thinks David is the perfect fiancee. He’s loved by almost everyone. Almost. Wolfe knows something is off about him, but can’t put his finger on it. But he does see the man who alienated his friend from him. A man who installed such fear into her that she decides to run. That is enough for Wolfe to dislike David.

Such protectiveness. If that doesn’t make you fall head over heels for Wolfe, maybe his charm and personality will (trust me, he’s nothing like David). Not to forget the tats and piercings. Wolfe has been through so much, and yet he’s still standing. Better yet, he completely turned his life around.

I just enjoyed reading about these two so much. The way they interact with each other, have fun and know when to say the right thing to get the other out of their funk. And finally I found a male character who fears spiders just as much as I do. Ugh, Wolfe, I feel your troubles dude.

The only thing that feels unfinished is the whole situation with David…and the ones who are starstruck on him. How will they treat Gen from now on and is David truly out of the picture…I have my doubts…

Anyway I’m more excited about the upcoming book in the series than to be stuck on David. Arilyn’s story is next. I read the sneak peak at the end and I can’t wait! I want to know the release date.
