~ Synopsis ~
From the moment Nolan Pratt walked into Alexa Arnold's life everything was forever changed. After a year of dating, the ring was on her finger, the house was purchased, and life was heading down Pleasantville lane. Everything was perfect.
Or so they thought.
With help from his parent's inheritance, Nolan takes on a new business adventure, utilizing all his free time. What was once their life - carefree with minimal responsibilities, is no more. When Alexa starts to feel the pressure from school, wedding planning, and lack of help from Nolan, exhaustion kicks in and feelings get hurt, testing the strength of their relationship. But, if there is one thing that Nolan will never compromise, it's Alexa's happiness. There's nothing Nolan Pratt won't do to make sure Alexa is well taken care of, loved, and happy.
When Nolan's past resurfaces - a past that Alexa didn't know existed - will it all be too much? Will Nolan's devotion to Alexa's happiness cost him their relationship and lose him the only thing that has ever mattered in his life? Or will Nolan discover that his past doesn't determine his future and he is worth the happiness he doesn't think he deserves?
~ My Thoughts ~
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This was the first book I've read in this series, and while it can be read as a standalone, I might have have liked Nolan more if I had read the previous books. I didn't end up liking him, though, and was close to wishing Alexa would find someone more worthy of her. They're written as being perfect for each other, but Nolan has an ugly temper and can be rude. I wouldn't be as understanding as Alexa if my fiance was downright rude to people while we were out in public together. Not to mention the way he treated her friend.
While the issues they faced in their relationship were completely realistic, I had a hard time buying that after three years they were still going at it like rabbits. Don't get me wrong - the sex scenes were smoking hot - but it seemed like every two seconds they were ripping each other's clothes off. I was worn out, and I was just reading the book!!
I did enjoy the author's writing style, I loved Alexa, and like I said earlier, the love scenes were hot! I loved the way Alexa fit in so well with Nolan's family, and there were twists in the story I didn't see coming. I plan on reading the other books in this series. I'm interested to see how Nolan and Alexa's relationship began and what it was like back then.
