“There is not a moment that passes where you don’t make me feel more alive than I ever thought I could, and today you gave me something I thought was lost a long time ago for the both of us. You’ve given me peace, babe. You’ve given me everything.”


This novella about Joss and Braden just fed my hunger for the two characters who have been at the foremost in this series. I really liked them in On Dublin Street. I am just so glad I get to read about them again.

I am giving this book five red hearts because this book balances out the first book in the series. In On Dublin Street, Braden was the one who pursued a terrified Joss. Here, Joss is still terrified; however, she is much stronger and braver now.

The pregnancy news hit her by surprise and instead of talking to her, Braden jumped into the wrong conclusion and thus began their biggest argument as a couple. I thought that Braden was a dick the entire book.

First, past or no past, a man should never pressure his wife to have kids, no matter how ready he is. The same goes that women should never pressure their husbands as well, even if their biological clock is not only ticking but is on snooze mode and keeps on waking them up every five minutes.

Braden, however, was redeemed when he and Joss finally had a conversation and he said that they were both going to fuck up eventually, but that they will never stop loving each other, which, of course, is the way all marriages are. Contrary to popular opinion, the wedding day does not usher in a happily ever after. It’s actually the start of a lifetime of having to work at things to be okay. People who believe that love should be easy are wrong. Love should never be easy. It should be something everyone has to work for.

So… in the end, this book gave me just exactly what I was looking for in Joss and Braden, two people who loved each other so much, and even if they mess things up every now and then, the way they loved each other was the one thing that stayed the same.

“I love you, you love me, our family loves us and they’re right here beside us. Nothing else matters . So no fears for the future, no fear that you’ll fuck it up beyond repair. Life isn’t perfect, we aren’t perfect, but I’m telling you now, Jocelyn, we’re indestructible. Stop shaking, and just marry me.”

“Jocelyn,” his voice was rough, like he was struggling to get the words out. “You’re my best friend. My everything. I love you and I want to be with you always. Marry me. I promise to try not to fuck it up if you promise to try not to fuck it up.”
