**I received a free e-copy of this book from the author but this has not affected my review in any way. **
The synopsis on goodreads caught my interest in this book and thought I might like this one.
Avery and Rhett had been best friends since they were kids. As they were preparing for college, they made a promise to be in touch with each other even after college. They even made a pact that on their 30th birthday if they're both still not married, they will marry each other. Things didn't turn out as what they promised, their communication eventually stopped. 10 years later, both successful in their careers, their paths crossed again when Rhett was in trouble of being sued of sexual harassment........
Anyone could easily relate with the characters whether you're a teenager who's excited to be on your own to make your own rules, in a relationship with someone who loves you but you're still unhappy, a workaholic who's work is more important than love life and friendships, a boss who could hardly resist his sexy secretaries, a divorced wife who still couldn't move on with your ex husband, or a product of divorced parents who still couldn't accept your step mom/ step dad.
I love the characters and the unexpected situations in the story. I found myself smiling most of the time while reading this book. The plot and the characters were interesting even the minor characters like Rhett's father. I wish there was a bit more about him and his new inspiration. I really thought it was Avery's mom he was talking about who made him change for the better. I really thought they might both end up together since they're both divorced. I was left almost breathless in the last few pages in this book with the scene between the lunatic woman and Avery.
This is not just about the romance between two childhood best friends, but also about family issues.
Though I found some typo errors and I still don't get what's with the “I was 30 years old when I died. I was 30 years old when she died.” in the synopsis on goodreads, I still enjoyed this book since what i read must be the unedited version.
This is an entertaining book with sexy scenes. A worth checking out read.
