Ever​ ​since​ ​she​ ​was​ ​a​ ​little​ ​girl,​ ​thirty-year-old​ ​Rose​​ ​​dreamed​ ​of​ ​the​ ​day​ ​Harley
would​ ​carry​ ​her​ ​across​ ​the​ ​threshold​ ​on​ ​their​ ​honeymoon.​ ​So​ ​what​ ​if​ ​this​ ​isn’t​ ​her
actual​ ​wedding​ ​day,​ ​and​ ​that​ ​she’s​ ​only​ ​here​ ​because​ ​Harley​ ​was​ ​left​ ​at​ ​the​ ​altar
just​ ​a​ ​few​ ​hours​ ​earlier?
Trading​ ​San​ ​Francisco​ ​for​ ​paradise​ ​and​ ​swapping​ ​her​ ​bridesmaid’s​ ​bouquet​ ​for​ ​a
Blue​ ​Hawaii,​ ​Rose​ ​hopes​ ​she​ ​can​ ​finally​ ​escape​ ​the​ ​friend​ ​zone.
Once​ ​upon​ ​a​ ​time​ ​they​ ​had​ ​been​ ​more​ ​than​ ​friends,​ ​but​ ​life​ ​got​ ​in​ ​the​ ​way.​ ​She’s
spent​ ​every​ ​day​ ​since​ ​wishing​ ​Harley​ ​would​ ​get​ ​a​ ​clue.
She’s​ ​always​ ​been​ ​his​ ​best​ ​friend.
He’s​ ​always​ ​been​ ​hers.
She’s​ ​in​ ​love​ ​with​ ​him.
He’s​ ​…​ ​not​ ​in​ ​love​ ​with​ ​her.
He’s​ ​…​ ​marrying​ ​someone​ ​else.
He’s​ ​…​ ​hiding​ ​something.
He’s​ ​…​ ​well—it’s​ ​complicated.

Exclusive Excerpt

“Do​ ​you​ ​love​ ​her?”
Harley’s​ ​temper​ ​flares​ ​as​ ​he​ ​meets​ ​my​ ​gaze.​ ​“Rose—”
“Do​ ​you?”
“I​ ​don’t​ ​know.”​ ​He​ ​rakes​ ​a​ ​hand​ ​through​ ​his​ ​hair.​ ​A​ ​beat​ ​later​ ​it​ ​falls​ ​right
back​ ​in​ ​his​ ​face.​ ​I​ ​long​ ​to​ ​reach​ ​out​ ​and​ ​touch​ ​it,​ ​but​ ​that​ ​isn’t​ ​my​ ​place​ ​anymore.
“Yeah.​ ​I​ ​think​ ​so.​ ​When​ ​I’m​ ​with​ ​her​ ​I’m​ ​a​ ​different​ ​man,​ ​but​ ​when​ ​I’m​ ​here​ ​with
you,​ ​I’m​ ​…​ ​I’m​ ​me.”
“God,”​ ​I​ ​breathe.​ ​“That’s​ ​so​ ​much​ ​worse.”​ ​Fresh​ ​tears​ ​prick​ ​my​ ​eyes.​ ​I​ ​cover
my​ ​face,​ ​as​ ​if​ ​I​ ​could​ ​hide​ ​my​ ​torment​ ​or​ ​the​ ​despair​ ​that​ ​I​ ​feel​ ​in​ ​this​ ​moment.
As​ ​if​ ​I​ ​could​ ​hide​ ​anything​ ​from​ ​this​ ​man​.
“I​ ​know.”​ ​Sadness​ ​chokes​ ​his​ ​voice,​ ​making​ ​the​ ​words​ ​almost​ ​impossible​ ​to
hear.​ ​Harley​ ​pulls​ ​me​ ​close,​ ​folding​ ​me​ ​in​ ​his​ ​arms,​ ​holding​ ​me​ ​the​ ​way​ ​he​ ​has​ ​a
thousand​ ​times​ ​before,​ ​but​ ​this​ ​time​ ​it’s​ ​infinitely​ ​different.
This​ ​time,​ ​it’s​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​us.

Title: Harley & Rose
Author: Carmen Jenner
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series or Standalone: Standalone
Rating: ★★★★
Reviewer: Diane

When I start a new book, usually after a few chapters in, I can pretty much say if I'll relate to a story or not. In this case I wasn't sure, so I kept on reading. At first it looked kind of a predictable friends to lover kind of story. Midway throughout, there was a major shift in the story that threw me completely off course. One that I never saw coming what's so ever. From then on it was mind blowing twists until the very end. I basically spent the remainder of the story an emotional mess.

I don't want to reveal anything about this story except that it's a best friends to lover, with a second chance. Harley and Rose have been in each other's lives since they were children and years later they get a second chance.

This story really pulled real tight on my heartstrings where I was left a sobbing mess but with a smile on my face. This is an amazingly written storyline with a seamless plot. It's unlike anything I've read before.

This is a 4 star standalone that is mostly told in Rose's POV that goes back in time a few times. I recommend this story.
