Mara Applegate thought she had it all: A high-end, lucrative career she loved and a handsome man who loved her.
It was the start of a happily ever after until it all fell apart and slipped between her fingers. It’s one thing to find out her fiancé never loved her. It’s another to have him throw that misplaced love in her face. His choices were now her fault.
Needing a safe place to recollect herself, Mara calls her long-time best friend and takes a road trip to Oregon. Brenna was now the only person she had in the world. The one person that, no matter what, would never abandon her.
Two friends, once separated by distance and life, set out on a new adventure. They’re on a search to find themselves and maybe, just maybe, find happiness.
Can the men they encounter handle their brand of crazy, or are they doomed to be a passing fling?
Mara is getting out of town as her life has just fallen apart. The man she loved, she caught cheating. No second chances here. She heads to her best friend Brenna and a trip to Seaside for girl time. Whilst these two find a couple of pretty gorgeous men whilst there, the focus of this was really on the friendship between the two girls.
These two will do anything for each other and the obvious place for Mara to go when things go wrong. Brenna was willing to go to battle and does go to battle when the ex doesn't take a hint and leave her alone.
I loved the relationship between these two girls and this is what made this one of my favourite's in the collection so far. The strength of friendship can help overcome the obstacles of life.

Barb is a Carolina girl by right and a Texan by birth. By day she’s a desk jockey for a rural transportation company and a book lover, reading through as many books as she can. At night, though, she turns into her alter ego: a writer—cape optional, depending on her mood.
Her stories are a mix of real-life events, personal experiences, and the craziness of her own imagination and those of her best friends. And when their imaginations blend together, it can be crazy. Barb writes in multiple genres, encounters new adventures, creates new worlds, and has a fantastic time breathing life into new stories, creating something she hopes inspires anyone who reads to fall in love with them as she has.
Barb lives by one little rule: tomorrow is never guaranteed, so make sure you live each day to its fullest.
