Synopsis: My fiancé is officially a married man. The only problem is that he isn’t married to me. . . Addison Peacock has been stuck in the same seaside town her entire life. When her college boyfriend proposes the night before graduation, she can finally see the future she’d always dreamt about. But the sudden illness of her father causes her to put that future on hold, and her soon-to-be husband leaves, with nothing but a promise that one day he’ll return. Now, five years later, he’s kept that promise. There’s only one problem . . . he’s already married. Crushed twice by the same man, Addison needs a distraction, someone to get her back on her feet and mend her broken heart. As luck would have it, Damian Walker has just moved in next door. Having rebuilt his own life after a drunk driver stole his career, his heart . . . everything, Damian knows what it’s going to take to get Addison’s life back on track. But he’s not going to be anyone’s rebound. His life is complicated . . . there’s no room for one-night stands. Until Addison knows what she’s looking for, neighbors are all they’ll ever be. One shared wall, two sun-kissed balconies, and a chance at love...a twist of fate. Could the possibility of a future be right next door?
My Thoughts: This was a sweet book with likable characters. Addison hasn't had an easy time in life, five years ago her boyfriend proposed and then took off and her dad died of cancer leaving her a pile of debt. Fast forward five years later and the guy that ran off is suddenly back, and he's married.
Addison "Green eyes" Peacock is witty and funny. I loved her in this book. She just needed someone to show her that she was worth staying for and worth loving. Damien "Offisides" Walker is just the man to do that. Damien was in a terrible accident that ended is soccer career and killed the woman in the car with him. He knows what he wants and he wants Addison. This book was about letting go of the past and letting someone love you. All in all, a good read. I'll be reading more from this author for sure.
