I have been waiting for Brad's story ever since I read Love Surfaced. I had Brad as the bad boy in my mind. But, he also was a different guy then. This story picks up 2 yrs after we finished the previous book. I was hooked from the very first sentence.

Brad has had a hard 2 yrs. His lifelong dream was to be in the Olympics and win the gold. When his dream was gone he didn't know who he was anymore. Brad ended up slipping in a dark hole. He ended up drinking and doing drugs. But, the worst mistake he's made was he ended up cheating on Taylor. The love of his life.

It's 2 yrs later and Brad has sobered up. But, he's miserable. He's working in an office where he's completely uncomfortable. What is the hardest part is he's missing Taylor. He tried leaving her alone thinking she'd be better off without him. But, he can't live without her anymore. He's planning on doing anything to win her back.

Taylor has always loved Brad. Even though he spiraled out of control and ended up cheating on her. She still loves Brad more then anything, She's reminded of him everyday. When he showed up at her job she was shocked and was in a rush to get out of there. So fast she ran his foot over lol! Taylor knows she can't run and hide from Brad. She's been keeping  a huge secret from him. One she's not sure how Brad will react too.

 I went from not thinking to highly of Brad. To loving him. Brad isn't like many. He never came up with excuses for the things he did. Instead, Brad owned up to every single one. Including doing everything possible to keep swimming a part of his life. As well as using his business degree. Helping out his friends while doing it all. Brad is so in love with Taylor that he'll give her as much time she needs. Taylor. I loved Taylor. Taylor has had a hard life. Both her father and sister are addicts. She is a nurse and doing her best  for her family. Taylor doesn't want to just jump right back in with Brad. She can try to fight it all day long. But, her heart won't allow it.

Michelle definitely gave us a fantastic love story. I never knew if I was going to laugh, scream or cry next. She gave us 2 strong people. That are not only strong when they're alone but even stronger when together. They're so in love with each other. This was such a fantastic book from Michelle. I can not wait for Dylan's book.

Excerpt:

I'm a cheater. There. I said it. Two years ago, I fell into a hole, and as fast as my fingers clawed to escape, the dirt continued to pile on me. I'm not saying it's an excuse. I'm not even saying she should forgive me. Although, I hope she does. But I can't live without her anymore. I tried. I found a girl and proposed to her, while imagining the delicate finger I slid the ring on belonged to someone else. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't go through with marrying anyone but her. For sure, I never thought I'd say this, but I'm nothing without her. She brings out the good in me. That's why I'm here, in some small-ass town, to grovel my way back into her heart.

She's different now, and I'm not referring to the disappearance of her bleached blonde hair back to her natural brown. I loved her as a blonde, but the dark suits her better. I wouldn't care if she had rainbow-colored hair. I'm not sitting outside the hospital where she works, watching her walk to her car like some stalker, because she’s gorgeous. I’m here because of her heart and kindness. That’s what I’m fighting to get back. The package it comes in is just an added bonus.

Her ponytail swings back and forth as she laughs with what I hope is a co-worker, unless she's turned lesbian in the last two years. She waves good-bye to the girl and throws her purse into the passenger seat of her Jetta. The car has a little more rust than it did back in the day, but it's held up well. Still, it’s old and she deserves something newer. 

She pulls out of her parking space, and my heart constricts as I watch her drive away from me again. I should duck down so she doesn’t see me, but my eyes won't veer from her. The beat-up Jetta passes and my stomach clenches. My hand itches to yank the car handle open. My feet beg to disobey and run to her. I don't have to, because she slams on the breaks and her eyes are locked on mine. Hope pours from mine while hers fume with anger.









Love Surfaced (Love Surfaced Series, Book 1)

Synopsis:

The equations are simple.

Piper Ashby + Brad Ashby = Twin Siblings
Brad Ashby + Tanner McCain = Best Friends
Piper Ashby + Tanner McCain = Off limits

Tanner and I abided by the rules. We stayed on our designated sides of the relationship circle.

Ignoring swarming butterflies.
Brushing off skipped heartbeats.
Settling on lingering stares.

Here’s the secret … a hand extended over that invisible line once, exponentially changing the equation. I was convinced we could make our relationship work until Tanner broke the trust he embedded in me from the age of seven.

One deceit of mega proportions and the relationship we built for that short month vanished. I swore never to speak to him again and it’s worked. Until now—two years later, when my brother’s wedding places me face-to-face with the best man—Tanner McCain.
Leaving one equation to be solved. Can love surface twice?
