With a big anniversary party in the works for her parents, Ryan will pretend to be Abby’s husband for just one last weekend.
Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He’s sulked, he’s gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake. Living alone in the massive 2-story has only made him miss her more. When her parents call him out of the blue about their anniversary party in Summer Harbor, Maine, Ryan believes God has dropped a golden opportunity straight in his lap.
Abby McKinley never exactly told her parents about the divorce. A strained relationship with her dad has culminated in a distant relationship with her parents, but she’s finally succumbed to her mom’s pressure to make the drive for their 35th-anniversary party.
Then Ryan shows up on her doorstep, looking as devastatingly handsome as ever. When he insists he’s going to Seabrook, with or without her, Abby knows she can’t say no. Her parents still think they’re married and now Ryan knows it too. Besides, he only wants to check in with his best friend from college—her cousin Beau, who just lost his dad. It’s just a one-week road-trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?
I have to say I love these stories that have been coming out with couples that are already married and working through issues. It is such a welcome change from the constant love and first sight books! I loved how this book not only shows that there is hope when there are major issues. Also, how it is not always one sided, but it can be some major one sided issues that cause big issues. If you hate self help books, but need to look at some issues going on in your life, this is one I would recommend. Or if you just want a good book to read..this is one you will not regret buying and reading. This is a real romance.
