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
*I received this eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.*
This was my first Tiffany King book. I enjoyed her writing and the story
was definitely relateable. Brittni and Justin's story alternates
between the now and two years prior, following the journey of how they
met, fell in love and ultimately, fell apart. The now scenes are equal
parts humorous and heartbreaking but there is also some hostility and I
wasn't entirely sure if I wanted them to have a happily-ever-after.
In fact, there were several moments when I wanted to tell Justin to put
his big boy briefs on, or maybe take them off because they seemed to be
bunching in areas that made him cranky. But that's just me.
What ends up being at the core of their "misunderstanding" is
devastating and not something that is easy to get over. (I speak from
personal experience) Once Brittni and Justin reconcile was really
happened, forgiveness is given and things between them move pretty fast.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for second chances and new beginnings, but I
would've expected Brittni to be more wary and less willing to forgive
Justin so quickly. Or at least, not so eager to jump back into a
relationship with him.
However, I did like how it all ended and MISUNDERSTANDINGS makes a nice addition to the NA genre. Check it out.
