Maya McKay's heart is as big as Jack Rhodes's shoulders are broad. Their chemistry is out of control, but it could never work between them because Jack is more than just best friends with her cheating ex-husband—they're like brothers. Maya, the sensitive, practical florist, has given up on love and is ready to settle for like. But now that Jack's around again, he's stirring up old feelings—and turning Maya's fantasies into irresistible reality.
Jack blew his chance with Maya years ago when he stepped aside for his best friend, Will, and he's still kicking himself about it. Maya was promised forever once before, and she got burned. But when Jack realizes that second chances aren't going to fall out of the sky, he seizes the moment—and the woman he's always loved—to show her how forever truly feels.
How Forever Feels by Laura Drewry (Friends First, #4)
Just another second chance romance? On the surface, Maya and Jack are both the victims of a drive-by romantic disaster, several years and one heartbreaking marriage ago. Now Maya has given up on love, at least for her and Jack is regretting letting his best friend cut in on his chance to win Maya’s heart. When their paths cross again, Jack is determined that this time, Maya will know he wants to be more than a friend, but how does he tell her when he is a reminder of the worst betrayal of her life?
How Forever Feels by Laura Drewry is about the pain, the mystery and the packing away of the memories of a lost love. It is also about forgiveness, understanding and opening your heart to what could be your forever love, the one that should have been. Best part, it actually involves more than one couple as well as finding true love, although in a roundabout way.
Maya wants the fairytale marriage, as it turns out, so do three other people. Maya needs to move on, forget the past and stop blaming everyone else but herself. Jack is a bear of man, good looking in his own right, but not the suave charmer than his best friend is, but he is sincere and wears his heart on his sleeve. Will it be enough to heal Maya?
Laura Drewry makes her characters feel real, flawed and human enough to make mistakes, often devastating ones. She knows how to open their hearts, as well as their eyes to what stands before them. Filled with supportive best friends, some humor and some very revealing moments, this is a quick read for anytime when you just need to have some sweet romance with a little tart undertone. Heck, I can’t even read the title without mentally singing a popular country song, and it fits this romance perfectly!
I received an ARC edition from Loveswept in exchange for my honest review.
