An ARC was provided for an honest review.
I loved this book!! I must admit, I was a teensy bit wary of this book. This is the first one I have read courtesy of budget bookworm, it's an author unknown to me and the book was 458 pages and I am not a fan of silly romances. Well colour me surprised, this was a fantastic book. The characters and dialogue were real, no silly romance at all. There is plenty of laughs, but there is betrayal, suspense and danger, some a little implausible perhaps but I would love to see this book made into a movie.
When Lily's no good husband dies in a car accident, she thinks she is supposed to feel sadness when the biggest emotion she feels is relief. Enter Gavin, the husband of the famous woman in the other car who was also killed. Definitely not the best set up for a romance, especially since their spouses are barely cold, but due to the peril surrounding her husband's death, they are thrown together for days and despite themselves, they find themselves attracted to each other. They were both in disastrous marriages, why not find happiness where you can?
I loved these characters. Lily, while not always the brightest crayon in the box, is feisty, enchanting and so much fun, I laughed out loud over her smart mouth and sarcasm, even when her outcome wasn't looking great. I would love Em to be my friend, and Max too and while Gavin was the one who had Lily's heart, part of me did wish she would find her way to Max, I found him more likeable.
While this book could perhaps have been a little shorter, it's a fast read and I found myself flying through it. And I liked it so much, as soon as I finished it, I instantly went onto Amazon and purchased the second part of Gavin and Lily's story. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692379525, Paperback)

Life can change in the blink of an eye. One moment, Lily is trapped in a loveless marriage. In a split second, she is free, but at what cost? Her mundane life is set into a freefall of tragedy and terror. Her husband may be out of her life, but he left a storm of collateral damage behind, and the burden is on Lily to sort it out. Fate connects Lily with Gavin, a charmingly handsome British gentleman who has been drawn into her tangled circumstance. Gavin is everything Lily’s husband wasn’t and gives her hope that love really does exist. Gavin wants nothing more than to carry Lily off into the sunset, far away from the devastation left behind by her husband, but she isn’t looking to be saved. She needs to clean up her husband’s mess and find a way to save herself in the process. Should she throw caution to the wind and open her heart? Or listen to her head which tells her and go it alone until she’s found herself again?
