Scarlet is used to creating happy endings as a romance author. Ryker is used to fixing things as a mechanic. What happens, however, when this couple can’t repair their relationship to find their own happy ever after?
I adored young Ryker and Scarlet as a couple. They were a super sweet and perfect opposites attract couple. When Ryker breaks things off fully believing he was giving Scarlet what she needed to succeed in life, she was left feeling betrayed. Both are left devastated until fate brings them together again 14 long years later.
I’ll be honest, I had a bit of trouble with the fact that neither moved on in any way relationship wise in 14 years while they also didn’t try to contact one another. Their communication skills are non existent. It felt slightly ridiculous. But, once I suspended belief, I was able to fall more into their story, especially when the author tossed a great twist into the plot that really turned things around for me and gave the couple more depth.
I’m looking forward to learning more about Scarlet’s bff Elise and Kieran in the next book. 4 stars

Scarlet Morgan knows all about happy endings. As a best-selling romance author, it’s her job to be an expert on the subject. It’s just too bad her own story doesn’t write so well.
Ryker Holt can build a car from the ground up. While there isn’t much the highly-skilled mechanic can’t fix when it comes to his profession, it’s Ryker’s personal life that’s still in pieces.
Scarlet thought she found forever in Ryker until, one day, he broke her heart and walked away.
Years later, filled with regret, Ryker wants Scarlet back. But he’s worried the damage is already done, and what they had between them is far beyond repair.
A.K. Evans is a contemporary romance author of over twenty published novels. While she enjoys writing a good romantic suspense novel, Andrea’s favorite books to write have been her extreme sports romances. That might have something to do with the fact that she, along with her husband and two sons, can’t get enough of extreme sports.
Before becoming a writer, Andrea did a brief stint in the insurance and financial services industry and managed her husband’s performance automotive business. That love of extreme sports? She used to drive race cars!
When Andrea isn’t writing, she can be found homeschooling her two sons, doing yoga, snowboarding, reading, or traveling with her family. She and her husband are currently taking road trips throughout the country to visit all 50 states with their boys.
