Happy Release Day!
Just when she thought things were going up…
Two years after a devastating breakup, Brittni Mitchell has moved on from Justin Avery—or so she tells herself. But when she returns to Seattle for her best friend’s engagement party, Brittni finds herself the victim of a disastrously timed elevator breakdown. She’s trapped with the last person she wants to face, and forced to recount the past she desperately wants to forget.
She’s going to have to look back…
When Brittni left her podunk hometown for a big city college experience at the University of Washington, hooking up with a guy like Justin Avery was not part of her plan. Between Justin’s attention-grabbing tattoos, cigarette smoking, and bad boy attitude Brittni quickly chalked him up as “Mr. Wrong.” But his charm was unrelenting, and Brittni’s decision to give Justin a chance quickly turned into the worst choice she ever made.
So that she might be able to move forward.
Now she’s stuck with Justin—literally—and the complicated web of misunderstandings that tied up the truth for two years is about to unravel.
It’s no secret that No Attachments was one of my favorite books read last year and I love Tiffany King’s writing. Imagine how excited I was to read the next installment to the Woodfalls Girls series! And I was not disappointed. A very emotional and wonderful story that I enjoyed immensely!
What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator for hours with your ex? An ex who you were hopelessly in love with, possibly still are, and who crushed you completely and still openly hates you.
Over the course of several hours while Brittni and Justin are stuck in an elevator together, Tiffany King tells us the story of how they met and what led them to the situation they’re in today. She takes us back and forth from past to present giving us just enough insight to keep us hooked and wanting more. Each chapter leaves us in suspense, waiting for the big misunderstanding that tore these two apart and caused so much pain and heartbreak. I loved the buildup and how the story unfolded – it was brilliant!
I was an emotional wreck while reading this book – I’d go from swooning over Justin’s sweetness to rage and heartbreak over their gut-wrenching situation. And the sexy times – although very understated – had my heart racing! Tiffany King has a way with words and her books just flow seamlessly.
I really fell for both Justin and Brittni. Justin is the tattooed misunderstood guy who’s actually a complete sweetheart, while Brittni is witty and snarky and someone I could totally relate to. Together they are an amazing couple and as the pieces of their story come together, you start questioning everything – constantly wondering if these two will be able to find forgiveness and how they move on from here. The suspense of the unknown is what kept me glued to the pages of this book.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading a book by Tiffany King and are in need of a good New Adult read – I highly recommend adding her books to your list!
