Synopsis

Regret . . . she's a snarky little bitch. I’ve tried several times to regret the events that took place on June 5, 2008, but for the life of me, I can’t. I'd never regret the pain, the suffering, or the heartache because they ultimately led me to the place I am now. And I can’t regret the place I am now. What I still can't figure out is this: how is it possible that the single worst day of my life inadvertently became the very best day? Five years ago my life was irrevocably changed. Seventeen minutes was all it took— to lose my best friend… to lose the love of my life… Seventeen minutes was all it took for the seeds of hope—the seeds of my future—to be planted in the worst possible way. My name is Harley Thompson, and this is my story.

Favorite Quotes:

I swear, I’m blinded by her sparkling blue eyes.  I, on the other hand, was gifted with an unruly brown rat’s nest on top of my head and a pair of mossy green eyes with a tiny button nose.  Side by side, we are the princess and the frog.”

“I’ve loved that boy since I was nine years old.  The minute he punched Jimmy Tallen in the nose for calling me ugly, my heart belonged to him.”

“She was new and exciting, and she looked at me like I was a shiny toy that she couldn’t wait to play with.  And I wanted to be played with.”

“I’m a full-fledged, panties-in-a-bunch, Type A personality, ‘nervous Nelly.’  I think first and act second.” 

“Fuck me running.  This guy is sex on a stick.”

My Review:

 I adored this book, it is near perfection.  I enjoyed it beginning to end, but I love stories with second chances and epic love.  It was funny, irreverent, steamy, insightful, contemporary, moving, sweet, heartbreaking, and emotionally aerobic.  I haven’t had this much fun in quite a while.  Well written and enthralling, I was sucked in from the very beginning and couldn’t put it down… I read it in a day.   I cared for and about each character, even the ones I didn’t expect to like.  I found this book so enchanting that I had to give it one of my rare Big 5 Star ratings.  I have only one thing to say to Ms. Grayson… more please!
