Once upon a time they had been more than friends….
Ever since she was a little girl, thirty-year-old Rose dreamed of the day Harley would carry her across the threshold on their honeymoon. So what if this isn’t her actual wedding day, and that she’s only here because Harley was left at the altar just a few hours earlier?
Trading San Francisco for paradise and swapping her bridesmaid’s bouquet for a Blue Hawaii, Rose hopes she can finally escape the friend zone.
Once upon a time they had been more than friends, but life got in the way. She’s spent every day since wishing Harley would get a clue.
She’s always been his best friend.
He’s always been hers.
She’s in love with him.
He’s … not in love with her.
He’s … marrying someone else.
He’s … hiding something.
He’s … well—it’s complicated.

Well... where to start...
How do you put into words a story that is so beautiful, devestating and heartbreaking all at the same time?
This a story about a girl and a boy who have been neighbour's and best friends almost all of their lives. Theirs is a timeless love that survives being together and breaking up, the teenage years, young adulthood, seeing each other with other partners, romantic non honeymoons and the list could go on forever.. because that is how long their love lasts.
She is truly the Wendy to his Pan.
Rose loves Harley, Harley loves Rose but life just keeps getting in the way of them being together. When they do finally look like they are getting it together something huge is stopping them, but only one of them knows what it is.
These characters are both fantastic. I never at any time felt like I didn't like either of them. The way their lives progress as the story goes on is nothing short of amazing. They both forge ahead in their chosen career paths and even though something is always in the way of them being together their bond and friendship goes from strength to strength. It never falters. Neither can stay mad at the other for long and this is what gets them through some of their toughest challenges.
There isn't a huge support cast of characters in this story because quite frankly it doesn't need it. The story really revolves solely around Harley and Rose and their relationship. There are a couple of other people involved but none that really change the outcome of the story or the course their life journey is destined to take them on.
There is no cheating involved in this story line, there are no cheesy moments or anything that makes you screw up your nose in distaste, but, there is a bucket load of emotion backed up by a damn good storyline that will keep you enthralled and enchanted from beginning to end.
You will need tissues and possibly shed bucket loads of tears and you will have moments that have you laughing so much you start to look like a crazy person,but as we all know that is part of the attraction of sinking your teeth into such a fabulous story.
This book has all the feels and then some. If you like stories that draw out every emotion you never knew you had then you definitely do not want to miss Carmen Jenner latest release. It is well worth your time and money to grab yourself a copy and escape into the world of Harley and Rose for a few hours!
“Do you love her?”
Harley’s temper flares as he meets my gaze. “Rose—”
“I don’t know.” He rakes a hand through his hair. A beat later it falls right back in his face. I long to reach out and touch it, but that isn’t my place anymore. “Yeah. I think so. When I’m with her I’m a different man, but when I’m here with you, I’m … I’m me.”
“God,” I breathe. “That’s so much worse.” Fresh tears prick my eyes. I cover my face, as if I could hide my torment or the despair that I feel in this moment.
As if I could hide anything from this man.
“I know.” Sadness chokes his voice, making the words almost impossible to hear. Harley pulls me close, folding me in his arms, holding me the way he has a thousand times before, but this time it’s infinitely different.
This time, it’s the end of us.
