Alani LaBelle has it all. A great job, amazing friends, and a loving fiancé. Traveling to Las Vegas for her bachelorette party, she never expects to come across someone who rocks her world the way Ryan Kraft does. Though they only share a few hours together, the connection she feels with him is undeniable. Thinking that her feelings for him may be cold feet she brushes it off and attempts to focus on her fiancé and their impending nuptials.
Heartbroken by her fiancé only days before their wedding, she finds herself needing to escape, needing to hide from reality. Though Alani knows that Ryan lives in Grand Forks, North Dakota, she never thought their paths would cross again while she is there.
Their friendship changes to something more with a good night kiss. Needing to be with Ryan, she leaves her old life in New Jersey behind and moves halfway across the country. As they journey together in a new relationship Alani has to adapt to life in a new city, new job, as well as dealing with Ryan's ex-girlfriend Stephanie, who is waiting for the perfect moment to get Ryan back.
But will her fiancé let Alani walk away from him without a fight? Will Alani's love for Ryan be enough for her to stay with him through turmoil? Or will Stephanie’s secret tear them apart?
So not only did I have the great pleasure of introducing the release of this book but I also get to review it as well. Please feel free to check it out, there are also teaser's in case you don't already own this book J Ok, so with that being said when I signed up for this review, I was unfamiliar with the author but I am so thankful I get the chance to see what more Livia has in store. This story is incredibly sweet and made me wish I had a Ryan in my life!! Livia is a great writer and I look forward to seeing more. Enough with the praise, let's get to the review ;)
We find Alani Labelle in Vegas celebrating her bacherlotte party which is where she meets Ryan Kraft. While having a great night out filled with shots, Ryan comes up and immediately Alani is struck by how incredibly handsome he is. After confessing his attraction to her, all she wants to do is spend time getting to know him, talking although she very much wants to kiss him and see what he has to offer ;) Over time she keeps thinking about her connection with Ryan and realizes just how wrong her fiancé Marco is for her.
Alani and Ryan's chemistry is just undeniable, from their conversations in the very beginning, you find yourself smiling. I definitely will be reading it again.
Livia Jamerlan is a hopeless romantic she is always looking for her next love story to pop in her head. Though Livia kept a journal throughout her early life, she never thought about pursuing a career in writing, she always used it as form of therapy, pouring her heart out into words. It wasn’t until a story developed in her head that she decided that maybe she could write a book. At first it was just an escape from reality but now she use it as a power to put all her feelings, hopes, and fears on paper. Deciding it was time to tell her story she began to write, with each passing day the story grew, characters we formed, and what seemed like a hobby at first has now become a passion for Livia.
When Livia is not writing she is spending time with her husband and their two dogs, she might also be curled up with a new book, or she is out traveling the country to support indie authors at their book signings.
