About Book

Skye Whitcomb is running from her troubles, and where better to run than Europe? Fresh out of college, she makes quick plans with her best friend Paige and hops on a plane.

Of course, nothing ever goes as planned—at least not for her. First, Paige has to bail, and Skye’s left to travel alone. Then she meets sweet and sexy Asher Benedict in Paris, and sparks fly after a night together on the train to Rome. He’s all kinds of perfect for her, but the timing couldn’t be worse since she was running from the altar when she left—so the last thing she wants right now is a relationship. 
But Skye’s about to discover that no matter how far you run, love can find you anywhere.

Our Review

This is one of the sweetest, tenderest, most heartfelt, touching, moving books I have ever read. Skye was finally going to follow a dream she has had for years to backpack across Europe, the timing wasn't good for some. Mainly her mother and the fiance she left behind. At the last minute her friend has to go home. Skye decides to stay and fulfill her dream. Standing in the station trying to decide where to begin her journey, a journey to find herself again, she meets Asher and the story begins. 

This book is a journey of honoring lost loved ones, finding your courage, enjoying life, and falling in love. Skye and Asher end up taking this journey together. Asher is backpacking across Europe in honor of his brother and as they travel he opens up more to Skye as she does with him. He is tender and gentle and kind with Skye something she is not used to. And she finds herself falling for him even as she fights it. 

The banter and playfulness between them is so fun to read and Asher is just down right charming, whitty, caring, calming, friendly, sweet and tender and all of that wrapped up into one hot bundle of a man. He takes Skye on the backpack journey of a lifetime and before they know it, earlier than expected their time comes to an end. She stands there at the train station watching him leave her heart broken. She was in love and didn't tell him. 

But OMG that video - you have to read the book I wont spoil it, OMG the video I had huge alligator tears, you need tissue for this moment. Oh and for her arrival back to the states you will need them then to. She is heading home to the lionesses den (mother dearest) but what is waiting for her.....
I gave this book 5 Hearts it is by far one of the best contemporary romance novels I have ever read. J Meyers has outdone herself. I am a huge fan of her writing and have read every single one of her books. Her Young Adult Paranormal are truly amazing pieces of work. Her step into this genre is sealed with this book. Well done.
