It’s not every day you’re invited to attend your wife’s wedding . . . as a guest.
The first time I saw Brinley Knox, she was crying, draped in a ridiculous pink tulle dress for her sweet sixteen, and cursing the boy who’d broken her heart.
I was the hired help, a teenage charity case.
She was the daughter of the wealthiest family in Orchid Valley.
I knew a girl like Brinley was off-limits. That didn’t stop me from kissing her. Or from deciding that if she were ever mine, I’d never let her go.
The last time I saw Brinley, she was sleeping, tangled in the sheets of my Vegas penthouse, my diamond glittering on her finger.
I returned three hours later to an empty bed, the ring on the dresser, and a goodbye note.
We haven’t spoken in the six months since, but I’m not the kind of guy who’d file for a divorce he doesn’t want.
Until I got this damn invitation, it never occurred to me that Brinley didn’t remember our impulsive Vegas nuptials.
It’s time to return to Orchid Valley and remind the bride-to-be that I promised her forever. And I’m a man who keeps his promises.
I guess it’s time to return to Orchid Valley and remind my wife that I’m a man who keeps his promises.
ARC REVIEW ➼
If you are looking for an emotional second chance romance then this is the one for you.
Ever since I read the prequal, Every Little Promise, I fell in love with these characters and this new world that Lexi Ryan has created. I knew this would be emotional, it would be a wild ride. I couldn’t put it down. I DEVOURED this book.
Marston was the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. The boy who was different from everyone else in Orchid Valley growing up. Brinley was the girl from the wealthy family. The princess. These two couldn’t be any more different, however, they bonded. They were each other’s everything growing up. Until Brinley told Marston to leave for good. He is back in Orchid Valley but will he be able to convince his wife that what they have is real and worth the risk?
Marston and Brinley have loads of chemistry. You can feel the tension oozing from the pages of their story. Their story was full of so many different emotions and ups and downs. I love Marston. He struggled his whole life growing up, however, he worked hard and made something of himself when so many expected him to fail. Brinley took some getting used to, but I admired the fact she wanted her independence, she wanted to do things for herself instead of relying on her family or someone else.
I LOVED their group of friends though. They were hilarious and added so much to the entire story. I can’t wait to see more of the Orchid Valley crew in the future. This one is a MUST READ!
