My fiancé is officially a married man. The only problem is that he isn’t married to me. . .
Addison Peacock has been stuck in the same seaside town her entire life. When her college boyfriend proposes the night before graduation, she can finally see the future she’d always dreamt about. But the sudden illness of her father causes her to put that future on hold, and her soon-to-be husband leaves, with nothing but a promise that one day he’ll return.
Now, five years later, he’s kept that promise. There’s only one problem . . . he’s already married. Crushed twice by the same man, Addison needs a distraction, someone to get her back on her feet and mend her broken heart. As luck would have it, Damian Walker has just moved in next door.
Having rebuilt his own life after a drunk driver stole his career, his heart . . . everything, Damian knows what it’s going to take to get Addison’s life back on track. But he’s not going to be anyone’s rebound. His life is complicated . . . there’s no room for one-night stands. Until Addison knows what she’s looking for, neighbors are all they’ll ever be.
One shared wall, two sun-kissed balconies, and a chance at love…a twist of fate. Could the possibility of a future be right next door?
Let’s talk characters for a moment. There’s Addison: she’s a lawyer working hard to pay off mountains of debt and has no time for fun or distractions. What I enjoyed about Addison is that she is incredibly strong and independent. She’s very well developed as a character and she grows throughout the book. Addison learns more about herself during her journey and you can’t help but want her to have that happy ending she craves.
Then there’s Damian. Damaged soccer player turned entrepreneur. He’s also Addison’s new neighbor and eye candy (yummy). This man has the patience of a saint when it comes to a relationship with Addison. But he’s got secrets that may tear them apart. You’ll enjoy how strong he is, but also how sensitive to others he can be. I loved that no matter what Addison threw at him, he fought to make her see that she belongs with him. He also does some growing and while it’s not drastic, I feel the way he grew works for the story and his character.
Matt. I don’t like Matt. He was Addison’s fiance and a complete moron. My only complaint about Matt is that I noticed after a certain part in the book, he just kind of disappeared with no explanation. While I’m glad he was gone, I would have liked to know if Damian confronted him or if Addison said something to him to make him leave.
The story itself was absolutely wonderful and entertaining. Minus Matt’s disappearance, you get answers to your questions. You’ll need some tissues at certain parts and you’ll laugh at others. You get a fantastic story with a great ending..and if you’re like me, you’ll be disappointed when you get to the end. The book is out now so go and one click it!
