Book Synopsis

We all get one true love in our lives, and it’s up to us to find it. Fate will act and try to push us together, but ultimately it’s up to us to recognize who that one person is when he’s standing in front of us.

It turns out that I recognized who my one person was when I was separated from my husband.

On the same day I determined that I was finally going to file for divorce, I confessed my secret to Jesse Drake, my swoon-worthy colleague known for his womanizing ways. Jesse invited me to crash with him, and with each new piece of the enigmatic Jesse puzzle that I started to fit into place, I found myself wondering if Fate had pushed us together for a reason.

If only my husband would stop getting in the way of the man with whom I was meant to be.



4.5 pennies

4.5 Pennies out of 5

Jessie Drake is the epitome of sexy.  He is every single girls dream.  Veronica Thomas is living in an in-between state of being separated from her husband but still living in the same house.  Veronica and Jessie work together.  He is the guidance counselor and she is an English teacher.  They are best friends.

Veronica had met her husband shortly after beginning her job at the school.  She had no idea that he might not be her forever.  Veronica met Jessie Drake after starting her new job and after she was dating Richard her future husband.  This is what Veronica has to say about Jessie:

“Jessie Drake was gorgeous.  He had these mysterious, dark brown eyes and this perfect silky and thick, dark hair that was always manscaped in that beautiful way that looked at once like he didn’t bother and like he ran his hands through it a million times a day.  He had that look of a healthy, lean athlete….He was that kind of good looking that caused me to take the long route to the office copiers just do I could swing by his office and catch a glance.  He was that kind of good looking that made my heart skip a beat when I saw his big black truck in the school parking lot when I pulled into my space each morning.  And he was the kind of good looking that set the flutters on fire in my belly when I saw that he was at the bar from our weekly happy hour.”

Veronica was living with her life secret and it was eating at her soul.  She finally broke down and confided in Jessie.

I loved this book; the only thing that held me back from giving it 5 pennies was the story with Richard.  It had me on my seat and guessing what was to come, but nothing much came from him.  That being said Jessie and Veronica were amazing.  I loved learning about the many sides of Jessie.  He is definitely a dream of a husband and friend to have in your life.  The struggles that were overcome, the happiness, the heartache and the drama made this one of my favorite books so far for 2014…
