Review Submitted By: Korena, Reviewer for Alpha Book Review
At 24 years old, Holly Scallanger has the perfect life. Everything a girl could want; a beautiful man, a stunning home, as well as being in the midst of preparing for the wedding of her dreams. This all vanishes the night she catches her fiancé, Brandon Morgan, in bed with her worst nightmare, Donna Sinclair, just a week before Holly is set to walk down the aisle.
Attempting to recover from his betrayal, Holly swears off the affections of men in order to pick up the pieces of her crumbling life. Unfortunately, meeting Jake ‘Hooligan’ Peters is not part of her plan. The tall, dark-haired and handsome as hell med student, sweeps Holly away from the pain of her past and reveals to her the bright future that lays ahead. That is, until she falls pregnant just as Jake begins his internship at P&E; his family’s hospital.
Will this love at first sight lead her to the fairytale she has always craved? Or, will she fall victim to a betrayal of the heart yet again?
(Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for our honest review.)
This is my first book from Isabella White and I am quite pleased with the reading. She gets you in the story and you don’t want to stop reading. At one point I thought another romance and a twist and turn and the story is upside down along with your emotions. I want the second installment , NOW!!
Holly Scallanger is no stranger to heartache. She lost her twin, Jamie, at a young age. Her mother couldn’t handle the death of the twin so she resorted to alcohol. Holly also had to cancel her wedding due to her ex-fiancé infidelity.
Holly found happiness with Jake Peters. Jake was studying to be a doctor. Holly and Jake spent weekends only together, so Jake could concentrate on his studies during the week. Holly and Jake had a chemistry that they only knew each other’s bodies. Holly becomes pregnant and Jake is over the top about the pregnancy. From this point on all hell breaks lose—you need to read to see what happens! You will not be disappointed. Mind you, have a box of tissues available.
I need book two. I don’t like cliffhangers. At least I was introduced to chapter one of the next book- NOW I MUST HAVE!
