Finley and Brody live in their own little bubble of “us.” Instead of, “I love you,” they say, “I love us.” It’s their own perfect endearment to each other. Finley’s quirky ways are the perfect contrast to Brody’s scandalously sexy passion. But Finley’s picture-perfect world gets pummeled when she gets a hard dose of reality from her doctor that changes everything. Crippled with the fear of Brody’s reaction, Finley does what she does best—she runs. She breaks his heart and leaves behind a life that is just too painful to live. One international flight later, Finley’s best friend welcomes her with open arms in London and she is immersed in a new country with new experiences and eccentric roommates. Nursing a broken heart, Finley grieves for the life she left behind and attempts to embrace the new one she is creating. When a cheeky Brit named Liam, a self proclaimed “fixer” catches her eye, she hopes it’s exactly what she needs to forget. But when Liam wants to help Finley unpack her bags for good, she realizes that her heart is still back home…with Brody.

Overall Rating **** ½ Stars
WOW!!! This is was a wonderful book, I really LOVED it. It is very emotional and I was choked up early on in the book.!! It was really well written and the story-line was fresh. This is the first book I’ve read from this brilliant author and I will be reading more from her.
Finley and Brody are amazing. They are great characters and as I was reading this book I felt as if I was there with them. Finley gets some upsetting news and I cried so hard. I don’t want to give any of the story away. This is a MUST read. Make sure you have tissues handy you will need them. Thank you Amy for a wonderful book! I can’t wait to read more from you!
CHAPTER 21: I shake my head and move past him to head downstairs. He grabs my hand and pulls me backwards into his chest. “Hey,” he breathes into my ear. “I haven’t even had a chance to say hello to you yet.” “Hello,” I reply lightly, enjoying the feel of his warm breath on my neck. He smells awesome, like a fresh laundry detergent. I feel his lips gently kissing my shoulder and moving their way up my neck. “Liam,” I shake my head back and forth, feeling a shiver prickle all over my skin. “Finley,” he growls into my neck and nips at my ear. Goosebumps crawl straight out from the spot he nips me and I break away from his grasp. “Friends, remember?” I say, holding my hands up defensively toward him. He scrunches his lips to the side, “I don’t like the sound of that.” “I know, I’m sorry, but it is what it is. Let’s go downstairs. It’s family flick night for goodness’ sake.” I start to make my way down the steps and Liam rushes up behind me, throwing his arm around my shoulders playfully. He growls in my ear, nipping at it again. I giggle into his touch and my heart hits the floor as my eyes glance down to the foyer. Dead in my tracks, I stop. Everything around me blurs as Liam continues his descent and looks up at me, grabbing my hand. When he takes in the frozen expression on my face, I hear him say my name, barely. I can barely hear him because blood is rushing in my head. I can feel my heart beat pulsing in my eyes as I begin to feel faint. Brody is standing in the foyer with a small suitcase in hand. Brody. In. London. Liam drops my hand and turns to look at what I’m looking at. I hear Leslie and Theo come down the steps behind me. They stop beside me when they see me frozen in place. Leslie gasps as she sees Brody.
