"I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a laugh-out-loud comedy that also warms your heart." -Books, Chocolate and Wine
"I thoroughly enjoyed the story with all of its twists and turns, and I really connected with the author's writing. I can't wait to read her other novels and I highly recommend you get a copy of all of them for yourself too!" -Arielle Deltoro, Living Life with Joy
"From the beginning I got caught up in the story and the heartbreak that is Amelia and Noah's relationship ... A super cute beach read!" -Samantha March, Chick Lit Plus
"I thoroughly enjoyed this slow-burning light romance by Stacey Wiedower ... I found myself on the edge of my seat throughout most of the book because while you think you know what's going to eventually happen, and you want it to happen, the author wrote the story in such a way that you were never really certain. Looking forward to reading more from this budding author!" -Meredith Schorr, author of Blogger Girl
About the Author
Stacey had barely blown out the candles on her 21st birthday cake when she took her first job as a reporter at a daily newspaper. She later followed her passion to interior design school and spent three years working at a firm with bizarre similarities to the set of Designing Women. Today she funnels that experience into her work as a full-time freelance writer, penning everything from magazine articles to website copy to a bi-weekly column called Inside Design. She also writes romantic comedy, and the zany characters she's met poke their heads into her stories from time to time. Stacey lives in Memphis, Tenn., with her husband, also a writer, and a son who's inherited their overactive imaginations.

I read this book within a two day span because I wanted so badly for the two main characters to get back together. I was a little taken back by the fact that they spent 8 years not moving on from each other and pining for one another but that was the real plot driver for this book so I went with it. After all, if an author makes me sit through all this build up of emotions between two main characters that spend 80% of the book inside thier own head thinking about the other, then the reunion and subsequent relationship will be amazing. Right? Wrong! The main reason that I failed to give the book a better rating is that the ending was so anticlimactic that I left the last page angry and wanting my two days back. The authors note said that she spent late nights writing this book and sometimes had a toddler on her lap as she wrote and I am inclined to believe her. At least for the last chapter anyway. I can only imagine that a toddler pressed delete just before she saved the "real" last chapter that would give me any satisfaction after reading an entire book that the two main characters only spent 2 pages together outside of flashbacks. I was so frustrated with the ending that I had to write a review that expressed my complete disappointment. If you are looking for a good love story, this is not it. There was only 2 pages of almost love and it was mostly descriptions of tears. The last chapter made me hate this book. I was ok with everything before that because I thought that I would see this decades long love reunite with a wonderfully fulfilling chapter that tied a bow on everything and warmed my heart. It didn't. The hero didn't even get to react to the fact that the single moment that had defined his life for the last 10 years was not his fault. We didn't get the satisfaction of seeing him love the heroine without reserve. All we got was his last ditch effort to get her back into his life and her agreeing to marry him after 5 minutes of crying. I'm done with this author even though I had such high hopes.
But, I couldn't imagine how Stacey would get these two back together, and they obviously had a love as strong as Romeo/Juliet without our hating them for hurting the other two players, but she managed it with grace and believability!
I also loved reading about the glamourous aspects of the movie business and was educated too, as to how an interior designer office would work.
I will read all of her books from now on, and say kudos to this up and coming writer for her wonderful storyline and interesting characters.
As an aside, I wish I could meet men like both of the male love interests in this novel - intelligent, funny, sweet, patient, genuine. Wow.
Looking forward to reading more from this budding author!
My only complaint is that I do wish I had read this one first. It was difficult for me to distance myself from Erin's and Noah's story knowing the outcome. However, that being said, it didn't really affect the novel as it was not about Erin and her friends.
Loved it, recommending it, can't wait to read the next one!
