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 … well—it’s complicated.
“Do you love her?”
Harley’s temper flares as he meets my gaze. “Rose—”
“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
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.
