I smiled. “Don’t be scared. I want all those things too.”
“But what if I fuck it up?” He kissed his way up the center of my chest and braced himself above me. “What if I’m not good at it? What if I don’t deserve it?”
“Tyler.” I took his face in my hands. “You deserve it. Do you hear me? You deserve to be loved the way I’m going to love you.”
Then his mouth was crushing mine and we were pressed chest to chest, rolling sideways with our arms and legs tangled as we tried to get under each other’s skin. He left my side only for the twenty seconds it took to put a condom on, and then he was back, easing into my body. When he was buried deep, he stopped and looked down at me. “I don’t know what the second act of my life is going to look like, but I know you’re the best part of it.”
My heart, already beating hard, threatened to burst right out of my chest. “Really?”

I kind of had a feeling that this was part of a series or at least a spin-off of Eve and Preston’s story. The beginning chapter made allusions to their story without actually divulging details about their rough patch. I do appreciate the author’s restraint in not telling too much about the hardships that Eve and Preston had to endure to get their happy ending. But I would have liked to know that there was a book that had Eve and Preston’s story before reading Jace and Sydney’s in ab-so-lu-tion. I would have still read this novel because I love Jace’s dark, broody and slightly depressed side. Sydney’s happy go-lucky personality. The character have the perfect balance of flaws. Sydney knows that she never dates men who are available to her.
Sydney has a type–unavailable men. The last loser was literally unavailable–he’s married. Of course, she didn’t know that until later which is why she broke up with him. Then there was Richard, her boss–the man who meant more to her than he should have. He is also the man who took a chance and hired her. Oh and the married ex, William is still calling her trying to win her back. She only wants to focus on her best friend, Eve making Eve’s wedding the best wedding possible. But there is a dark cloud hanging over the wedding–his name is Jace Montgomery, Eve’s future brother-in-law and best man.
Jace Montgomery is a widower with two children. His wife was tragically taken from him a little over a year ago. He still hasn’t properly grieved her death.
I loved Brent and Audrey in Book 1. I was looking forward to reading this latest installment from the series. Of course with the reappearance of Area 51 at the most inopportune moments–meeting Brent’s super conservative aunt with young twins! Audrey’s dress is lost in the mail…oh and Brent hurts himself simply skating at his childhood home. How can we forget the bachelorette party that Lainey planned which didn’t end until after 6 am the next day.
Whitney Wheeler has been dreaming about and planning her wedding since her grandmother gave her a wedding scrapbook as a teen. Well, the thing with well laid plans…they never–I mean ever work out. With Whitney, it came in the form of walking into her McMansion that she shared with her fiance, finding his secretary servicing her soon-to-be husband. Instead of discussing the situation, Whitney goes on a road trip with Lucas DeCosta, her high school crush that she reconnected with the previous night at the local strip club…where he was working. Her friends paid him to give her special attention…on stage in front of the entire club. The real problem is the electric current that runs through her veins every time Lucas touches her. Why can’t Trenton stop calling and texting me? Do I still love Trenton? Did I ever really love him?
