Forever is a heartbeat away . . .
Kerris Moreton knows how to make things work. Bounced from foster home to foster home as a kid, she adapted; when opportunity arose, she thrived. Now, about to open her own business and accept a marriage proposal, Kerris is ready to build the life she's always wanted. The only thing missing? A passionate connection with her would-be fiancé, Cam. Kerris wants to believe that sparks are overrated-until Walsh Bennett lights her up like the Fourth of July.
. . . but what about love?
As one of the East Coast's most eligible bachelors, Walsh enjoys financial independence, fulfilling work with his family's nonprofit, and plenty of female attention. But lately he's been distracted by the one woman he can't have. Lovely to look at and even sweeter to know, Kerris is the soul mate Walsh never thought he would find. The problem is, his best friend found her first . . .
WOW...just wow!! This is really more of a 4.5 star for me. An incredible debut novel for Kennedy Ryan.
The basis for this story is a love triangle between Walsh, his best friend Cam, and Kerris. But there is so much more packed into the pages of this story. Each of the characters in this book has a story and you can't wait to find out what happens. I would have given a five star rating but I feel the writing needs just a bit more polish but it will be so exciting to see how this writers work evolves over the course of the series and what is sure to be a very long writing career. If you absolutely have to have your HEA, you won't get it in this book. This story is not complete. It will be continued in the next installment of the series. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it. I can't wait for the next one.
Oh the feels!
Kerris and Walsh meet when he returns to his hometown after a long trip abroad. He finally meets th woman his mother has been bragging about. The woman about to marry his best friend. Just one little problem...
She is the only woman he has ever thought about forever with. He sees the same feelings mirrored in her eyes. She just cannot past the promise of a future with his best friend. Regardless of his warnings, they marry anyway.
Walsh knows he must stay away. They look at each other and it shows on their faces. Too many people could get hurt. He learns about the business from his father and tries to go on with his life. Nothing dulls the pain. Nothing.
Kerris is a woman of her word. She has promised her husband she wants a future with him and she means to be faithful. They have so much in common from the past. They have scars others would not understand. If only she did not dream of Walsh.
Such a heart wrenching story with an open and raw, almost gaping wound. I felt the emotions right down to my soul. It just makes you want to take the characters and smack 'em up side of the head.
