I went against all I believed in and fell in love with what should have been a one-night stand! I fought it, tried to make up rules to prevent the inevitable, but somehow, he knew all along. He understood what I wanted and was willing to comply. I was the one who took him for granted. I was the one who made him walk away. And now, he’s gone and I’m left with nothing but my thoughts and regrets.
He was never supposed to be my happily ever after. But my favorite love story ends in tragedy, so why wouldn’t mine?
I played the white knight, doing what every woman dreams of to win her over, yet it still got me nowhere! But what did I expect? I wasn’t the man she wanted! Nothing I could have done would have landed me the girl. I guess love is funny that way.
One minute, you think you have the girl, and the next, you realize you were blinded. Walking away was hard, but watching her with another man was harder.
Sometimes you have to pick your battles, and I know when I’ve lost. Love shouldn’t be a game, but I learned someone always loses. For once, I wasn’t the one being selfish, but I was the one who paid the price.
This is the conclusion to Ryder and Ashlyn’s story, it is important that you read Selfish before you read this book. After the jaw dropping conclusion in book 1 I was so happy I had this book waiting for me. I really enjoyed it. There was so many emotional moments between these characters and there was also plenty of laugh out loud moments as well it.
Ryder didn’t have a stellar reputation when we first were introduced to him but Ashlyn did bring changes in him. So naturally thinking the worst happens he’s left a mess. Ryder is literally lost without Ashlyn and the author developed his journey well in detailing his emotions and the turmoil he faced. Ashlyn is a great character. She made a mistake but Ryder believed the worst of her. She also took it hard but she also picks herself up and brings her A game.
Communication is key in a relationship without it their is chaos and this book was the perfect example of this. When these two finally get things together we see how much they’ve growth they have since being apart. They both fight for their relationship not only between themselves but also against those who will do anything to tear them apart. I loved the added twists this author added to this story and I loved how everything was tied up nicely. This was a great ending to Ryder and Ashlyn story. Highly recommend.
