Many thanks to Victoria Joss and publisherAria for my invitation in this blog tour
A cute book from beginning to the end. The story hit me, not because it was a love story but because it was a story where people in love were real. The made mistakes, they got scared, they hurt each other even when they didn’t want to.
Ambri and Henry had a connection, they bonded from the first day, they seemed to complement each other. Till Henry fell for Ambri’s sister and married her before her death. A year on, they discovered their romantic connection, made love, and Henry left as he was still in depression and scared.
My first book by Aimee Brown, it saw me wavering between hating and loving Henry. I could understand his reasons for leaving, I hated his way of leaving. The love between the two was palpable, and it found its place even when they were in a relationship with others. Ambri was cute in the entire book, her heart was way more generous than mine would have been in the same circumstances.
Then came my niggles, a little more backstory would have given the book a depth and more emotions would have helped me connect better. I understand the pain of when a guy leaves suddenly without an explanation, I couldn’t feel Ambri’s.
But love found its way in the book and they lived happily ever after. A fun love story.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Aria, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!!

Aimee Brown is a writer of romantic comedies set in Portland, Oregon, and an avid reader. She spends much of her time writing, raising three teenagers, binge-watching shows on Netflix and obsessively cleaning and redecorating her house. She’s fluent in sarcasm and has been known to utter profanities like she’s competing for a medal.
Aimee grew up in Oregon, but is now a transplant living in cold Montana with her husband of twenty years, three teenage children, and far too many pets. She is a lot older than she looks and yes, that is a tattoo across her chest. (In the Portlandia spirit, yes, I lived many years in PDX and I do indeed have a bird tattooed on me (2!)) Aimee is very active on social media. You can find her at any of the networks below. Stop by and say hello!
Ambri and Henry have been best friends forever. They’ve been through the highs and lows of life with each other by their sides. The worst? When Henry’s wife, and Ambri’s sister, died. Together, they can face it all. Until one night destroys everything.
Two years after he stepped out of it Henry walks back into Ambri’s life and she’s more than a little shocked. But as old friends fall into even older habits they need to decide whether they can forget the past and embrace their future.

Love your review and the author is of interest as well. Your reviews highlight what would help strengthen the book. Good job!
Aww… You are so cute. Thank you Gin. Did I tell you how much I love you ❤️
I read this one too. Too much “sighing” for me. 😂
Hahahaha… 😂 😂 😂 I understand
Lovely review, Shalini! Your niggles are very constructive. ♥️
Hahaha thank you so much ❤️
Interesting plot, but I don’t think I could like Henry. Your review must have been good to stir up that ambivalence in me.🤷🏻♀️
I wouldn’t be with Henry if he left the town the very next after making love without telling me 🤦♀️
Lovely review, Shalini. This sounds like a cute story that could have been even better with a little more depth.
It was there, but I needed something more, to uplift it❤️
A wonderful review for a deep going love story. Thank you, Shalini! Best wishes, Michael
