Sometimes love needs a second chance…
I never looked back after skipping out on my own wedding, even if it did leave me estranged from most of my family. Eight years later, I have the life I’ve always wanted. As an advertising account executive, my world is damn near perfect.
Until I come face-to-face with my past. With the man I once loved. The man who holds my future in his hands. The man who’s hell-bent on getting even with me for leaving him at the altar.
Even with all the unfinished business between us, I still love Knox Montgomery. The only problem?
He loves me…KNOT.

This book has the entirety of my heart and soul…right down to the daisies on the cover and the “he loves me, he loves me knot” saying all throughout the book. I’ll tell a little of why I love it so much. This book gives so much hope to those of us that have loved and lost so much – it’s not a tremendously sad book, so don’t think that. As a matter of fact, it’s more of an uplifting book that will leave you laughing out loud in some places and feeling warmhearted in others with a smile on your face.

My heart belongs to Becket and it always will…he’s just so yummy. I really loved his brother Brantley and a part of my heart was crushed because he bats for the other team. I know the book is about EJ (Emma Jane and Knox) but I read it for Becket. I fell for him in Hendy’s book and if you haven’t read Out of the Ashes (Shameless plug I know, but it’s the best book!!!) then you really should. 

Anyhow, this book is about Emma Jane or Blue as Becket calls her, who after being engaged and getting ready to walk down the aisle overhears her fiancé talking to her father about where a woman's place should be and runs out of her wedding. From there, she meets Becket and they form an unlikely friendship, one that is beneficial to each of them in their own ways.

Fast forward eight years and we meet Knox, EJ’s ex, who is the buyer of the company where EJ works. To say that she’s in shock is an understatement. To say he’s not in a good place is the understatement of the year. Watching the two together was explosive, but watching Becket and Wells (Knox’s best friend) throw EJ and Knox together was hilarious. I wanted to slap Knox a couple of times because of his hardheadedness, but I understood it. There was a part of the book where there is a reveal that I felt needed longer than the allotted time that was used, however, it didn’t slow the book down and it didn’t impede the storyline in any way. I thought the author did a wonderful job of building the story up and then letting us as the readers experience the fallout of the plot. Another thing that was profound to me was the lack of cussing in this book as opposed to the other works of this genre and yet the plot and the storyline never suffered!! That’s always been one of my critiques when reading a book is the language, and the other is extreme sexual content that can sometimes lead away from a dramatic storyline…this book didn’t do either. It was a pleasure to be able to pass this to my mom and not have to warn her ahead of time. She, of course, skipped over the sex scenes that were in the book, but there weren’t quite as many as usual and the storyline stood on its own. Next up is Becket’s book and I’m all over it.

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own and do not reflect anyone else's.

Barely a minute passes before the din of light conversation ebbs to complete silence when a man enters the room and heads straight for the opposite end of the table. I can only see the back of him as he takes long, powerful strides, one hand grasping a thick binder. Something seems so familiar about him... My eyes track his movements, and my forehead creases as I try to place him.
His suit is well tailored and it’s evident the man works out because even beneath the black pinstriped dress pants, his backside is firm, the fabric doing nothing to mask his powerful, muscled thighs. When he moves to set the binder down, his suit jacket shifts and hints at a firm, flat stomach beneath the button-down shirt. My appraisal continues down to his hands when he draws one hand back from the binder.
An odd sensation overtakes me, and a rousing awareness crackles within the air, causing me to immediately grow still.
Then he turns, fully facing everyone in the room, and it’s in this moment my breath is completely robbed from me.
As if in shock, my mind refuses to operate on all cylinders, acting sluggish. I continue to take in the sight before me, cataloguing my observations. The square jawline that used to remain clean-shaven now has a short, neatly trimmed beard of the same dark shade of brown as his hair. My eyes skim over the straight nose that has the faintest bump on the bridge from the time when he was five and fel—
Sweet Lord, no.
As the man’s identity dawns on me, my eyes flicker over my coworkers seated around the large table before I return my panicked gaze to the individual who’s garnering attention with his commanding presence.
He surveys everyone in attendance and those piercing green eyes, framed by dark lashes, scan each person and slowly travel around the table. My heart skips a beat when his eyes lands on me. If I weren’t scrutinizing so intently, I wouldn’t have caught the slight pause, the faint shift in depth of his gaze, as it grows frigid before he continues his perusal of the remainder of the staff members.
My throat grows dry and I immediately wish I’d brought my water bottle along. A stick of gum, even. Anything.
I should’ve known better than to think my past wouldn’t catch up to me at some point.
In my case, however, it seems my past is the new owner of my place of employment.
Knox Montgomery. The man I left at the altar.
