About the Book

Samantha Smiles and Renee Montgomery have been best friends for over a decade. They’ve shared laughs, secrets, and a mutual hatred for one person: Tristan Montgomery, Renee’s older brother. He was the guy every girl wanted, and every guy wanted to be, and it wasn’t uncommon they’d befriend his little sister just to get closer to him. Which was exactly how Samantha became Renee’s saving grace. She was the only girl Renee could trust not to fall in love with her older brother.

Until the one night Samantha spent with him alone, leaving her questioning everything she’d ever known about the blond headed heart-throb.

Years later, Renee asks Samantha to be her maid of honor. With no other option, Samantha is forced to drive cross-country with the focus of their teenage ire.

He was her first kiss.

Her only secret.
Can Samantha survive the trip cross-country with the reckless Tristan Montgomery? The guy who did what he wanted, whenever he wanted, without worry for tomorrow? Or will she discover a different side of him. One that’s sweet, funny, and maybe a little bit vulnerable. And fall completely and helplessly in love for the first time in her adult life with the one man who could cause her to lose her best friend forever?

My Review

Ratings: 4 stars!

I voluntarily read and reviewed a free copy of this book provided by Xpresso Book Tours and the author. Thank you for the reviewing opportunity!

Road trip with my best friend's irresistibly handsome older brother? Heck yeah! Where do I sign up?!

I haven't read any of Taylor's books but she has totally captivated me with Samantha and Tristan's story. It was a slow burn romance with lots of flashbacks and angst, but the underlying passion and attraction were sizzling off the pages and it was scorching hot!

I loved every second of it. While I'm not a huge fan of Samantha as I think she was whiny and perhaps a little selfish at times, I do love how much she valued her friendship with Renee and how she was passionate about her own dream. Tristan may be a man of a few words, but he has a big heart and a softness to him that drew you in quickly, to be honest, I couldn't get enough of him. Although the story was predictable and perhaps a little cliched at times, every twist and turns was wonderfully written and the ending was so perfect.

Recommended read to all romance lovers!
