My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book just goes to show, you don’t really know what is going on in someone’s life, unless they want you to know. Derek has always been a funny side character. Always one to give advice, give a funny one liner, make someone laugh. But in this story, we find out that there is so much more to him, so much he is hiding, hurt that he is keeping to himself.
Olivia has a good life, but a traumatic past, that keeps her from being everything she could be. She takes the safe road, always holding back part of herself, trying to keep from getting hurt. What started out as something simple, is getting complicated, and she doesn’t know what to do about it.
When the past meets the present, and simple becomes complicated, everything starts to fall apart. Derek and Olivia have to step outside of their comfort zone, either giving up something that could be amazing, or deciding to grab on and not let go.
There were times, I didn’t think a HEA was possible, given the circumstances of their relationship, and the events of the past. With every twist and turn, I was constantly surprised and amazed at how great they were together. I was cheering for them, and hoping they could find a way to be together. I love all of the Montgomery characters, and am glad that Derek has found his place!
