Editorial Reviews


"Ken and Van's story will hit your feelings like a freight train. It is angsty, delicious and original. Everything I look for in an epic romance." LJ Shen, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author

"Get ready to feel ALL the feels and go on one doozy of a ride. I fully admit I wasn't 100% sold on the theme of the book, but FAST changed my mind after I began reading. WOW, what an epic read!!!"

"I had to make myself savor this book and not devour it in one sitting. It was spectacular and completely unique! I have never read anything like it and I was obsessed! I love the way Siobhan really brought life into these characters. I felt them in my soul."
Meg B Book Loner

"What an angsty, gut-wrenching, emotionally charged story! I loved Kendall and Vander's chemistry and connection, and their age difference didn't matter at all to me!!"
Bookworm Angel

"If there is one book you read this year, please make it this one. It's a can't miss, one of a kind read! An emotionally charged forbidden romance that will leave its mark on your heart."
Reds Romance Reviews

Always Meant to Be is a truly unique read full of all the emotions and second chances. Siobhan has given us a story unlike anything she's written before, and I loved the deep connection I felt with the characters." Kay Daniels Romance

"WOW! Proof that Siobhan Davis can write from one of my least favorite tropes and her writing can still captivate me. Siobhan writes some of the most angsty & heartbreaking romances out there."
The Masque Reader

"This love story had me reeling right from the start. Emotional, devastating, exciting, and full of surprises throughout."
Beyond the Covers

"Kendall and Vander will have you rooting for them from the start. They will break your heart and then slowly rebuild it. I can't even put into words how much I loved this one!!"
Night Owl Brandie

"This book has taken my number one spot for Siobhan. The way this story was pieced together, perfection doesn't even begin to describe it. 5 stars is not enough. I have no doubt this will remain my top read in 2022."
B.reads711. Goodreads reviewer

"Age gap books are my jam. I love everything about them, but they have to be done right, and Siobhan Davis did this one perfectly. I was hooked from the beginning until the very last page."
Shannon. Goodreads reviewer

"All the feels. Every. Single. One. There were moments when I felt I couldn't breathe...the chemistry and angst is so RAW!!! Just perfect."
Emma. Goodreads reviewer

"Siobhan Davis has a way of writing stories that completely break your heart. This book destroyed every single part of me by 20% and I was ugly crying in the best way."
Lenor. Goodreads reviewer

"What a beautiful book with raw emotion. You want to slow down, but then you don't want to stop because you have to know how it ends."
Jennifer. Goodreads reviewer

"Just wow. This is such a different read from Siobhan, but I absolutely loved every page. It was an emotional roller coaster of a ride."
Lisa. Goodreads reviewer

"I wasn't sure if this was going to be a story I was into, yet I was taken by surprise. I was five chapters in when I realized Siobhan Davis was going to break my heart. I devoured it in one day and I full-on ugly cried many times."
Lena. Goodreads reviewer

"Siobhan has a way of introducing me to tropes I may not read otherwise, and this age gap romance was no different. You definitely don't want to miss out!"
Lori. Goodreads reviewer

"An epic read with incredible characters and a captivating storyline. This was filled with angst, drama, intrigue, suspense, heartbreak, desire, passion, hurt, betrayal, abuse and love."
E.C. Britton-Farnsworth. Goodreads reviewer

"Such a heartbreakingly beautiful story! The writing is fantastic and it pulled every emotion out of me! It gets pretty deep at times and makes your heart crumble."
Brittany. Goodreads reviewer

"This was EVERYTHING! Absolutely totally hooked from the start to the finish. The journey to each other was breathtaking & heartbreaking!"
Liz. Goodreads reviewer

From the Inside Flap


I chew on the inside of my mouth as I start walking again. "What happened Saturday night proves us hanging out is risky."

"But you were enjoying yourself, right?" He takes my elbow, forcing me to stop. "I didn't just imagine it. We had a good time."

Since Saturday night, I have been trying to convince myself to let him go. Believing the West incident was a sign that continuing this friendship will only end in disaster. But, for reasons even I don't understand, I can't let him go.

I should, but I can't.

"We did," I reluctantly admit. "But West almost caught us. What would you have told him if he did discover us together?"

"The truth." He tucks a stray piece of my hair back into my ponytail. "That nothing happened. I cooked you dinner, and we talked about philosophy over a glass of wine and a beer." He shoves his hand back in the pocket of his sweats. "He wouldn't have read any more into it. His brain would never go there. You're making this out to be something more than it is."

I arch a brow because come on. He knows I know he still wants more than friendship, and we have admitted our feelings are stronger than that. I honestly don't know what I'm doing or why I can't just shut this down—whatever the hell
this is.

His lips twitch. "Focus on the facts, Kendall. Nothing has happened. It's innocent."

Brushing his lips against mine was hardly innocent although it stopped short of a kiss. "Let's not kid ourselves. We both know our feelings for one another are far from innocent."

He leans down, pressing his mouth up against my ear. "But we haven't acted on those feelings," he whispers, and I shiver all over. "
Yet." He straightens up and flashes me a grin. "Whenever you change your mind, I'll be more than happy to act out my every fantasy with you."

My jaw slackens, and my mouth drops open. He chuckles before waggling his fingers and jogging away, leaving me dumbstruck and tingling with anticipation in the middle of the park.
