Sierra Ward seems like the perfect college student, she studies hard and works harder. When the death of her best friend causes her to question her life choices, she does what anyone would do; she hits a bar and has a one night stand with a dark and handsome stranger who may just turn out to be her soulmate, but all she promised him was one night. Burdening Dylan with all of her baggage is the last thing Sierra wants to do, so she skips out with the morning light well aware that she may never see him again. Months later she has a new major and a new career; but none of that matters when he reappears in the most unexpected place, and before she knows it, he's everywhere. Now Sierra's wondering if there really is such a thing as soulmates, and if there is, will she get a second chance to do it right, or will she be fated to wander incomplete for the rest of her life.

Let me just break it down why this book is so good:
For one, Sierra is just so gosh darn authentic, she’s real on a level you rarely get to feel with characters, and you feel that right away. She has confidence issues and loneliness issues and struggles with work and school, even friendship. Then here comes Dylan, this dream guy who seems like her every wish come true, but she doesn’t pursue him, she instead focuses on her life and herself which is what people really should do.
The same goes for the book, it has an authenticity to it that these people could be living in your city, struggling with these issues common to a lot of people.
How on earth can you argue with love like this? Spoiler alert! You are going to fall in love with these characters! They are real. They are quirky. They like to drink a lot of whiskey. Don’t fight it, just accept that this crazy cast of binge drinking bestie’s and all their issues are going to have you in knots while you pray for everything to just work out!
Is anyone else pissed off at the fact that every day after Dylan and our heroine met up again, he chose his fiancé over her? That he was emotionally cheating and lying to his fiancé every day that he made his "friendship" with sierra a priority while not in fact making sierra a priority? Anyone else pissed about the fact that he "acted" completely clueless to the fact that she was in love with him and he kept insisting on inserting himself in her life, in spite of the fact that he had chosen to remain with his fiancé!!!! Anyone else pissed at the author that we never actually got a satisfactory answer from the author about why Dylan did in fact stay with his fiancé! The whole he met her in the hospital when he was down and out, is a really insufficient explanation. No mention of love...no mention of a feeling of responsibility, or maybe it was just great sex...also, the limited ability for the reader to see any real sign of affection portrayed towards her.... Dylan is a piece of sh!t, because it seems as though he accepted a marriage proposal from a girl he didn't seem to love, much less care much about and then proceeded to drag both women through months and months and months of stringing both of them along this tortuous road, that neither of them deserved and that he was the prime person to perpetuate it (not to discount sierra's responsibility in all of this).....but Dylan was the prime asshole. Why did no one ever just come out and ask the guy why the hell he was with her and what the hell he was thinking hurting sierra!!! Not Dylan's family, not sierra's friends, not the fiancé, not sierra herself....and certainly Dylan never so much as volunteered the information, much less apologize to sierra for putting everyone through a completely unnecessary hell. He selfishly turned her into the side piece and figured what....that she'd happily stand by while he went home to the arms of another woman each night? Also, he sure as hell should have gottten a better taste of his own medicine than that one initial scene with Vaughn. I am super super pissed at Dylan, the author and even just the freakin title....does anyone ever recall Dylan ever being in a suit? I pretty much just recall him in construction gear, motorcycle gear or thanksgiving casual wear. Whatever.... sigh....
A girl with a heart of gold, a guy with his own demons to battle, can we say match made in heaven?
Sierra is sweet, she’s awkward, she’s got no clue how sexy she really is; always staying in the background, just watching life go by.
Until she meets sexy and broody Dylan, who opens up to her and has just what it takes to get her to open up. So what does she do but run, that is, until there isn’t anywhere she can go. When the sparks go flying, can these two deny the draw? Who is going to break first?
It’s an ending that will leave your pulse pounding and your temperature rising!
