You know those fights you have in high school with your sweetheart? The earth shattering variety that changes everything? I instigated one, and it started me on a course that would change the rest of my life.

After seeing Brody with so many girls, I turned to Sebastian --the new kid in town-- to help me forget. When he enlisted after graduation, I married him. Then one day a knock on the door changed my world.

I stayed in that little Army town in Alaska for five more years, sleeping in our bed, washing our dishes in the same house that he last walked out of, until my gran called me home.

Imagine my surprise when the first thing I see after stepping out of my minivan, is Brody Denton.



about Brandace || I am a full time mom of four, and stationed overseas with my sexy soldier. My current obsessions are Maroon 5, rum and coke, and reading in no particular order. Despite being terribly awkward with social media, I'm everywhere. Frequently subjecting the public to pictures of my minion's messes, and everything that is Momdom in my house.

Welcome back to Los Rancheros -- but this time, instead of rockstars and media people, we have two normal individuals.

Can I remind you how much I loved Sadie and Finn? Because I really, really loved them. I wasn't sure that I would love another Brandace Morrow coupling but my goodness gracious, my heart is so full for Brody and Jules.

Brody and Jules have been friends since the womb. Their mothers were best friends and vowed to name their children after Shakespeare characters -- and thus came about Juliet and Brody Romeo. Their mothers truly believed these two would be together forever. When dating in high school, Jules decided they needed to take a break before college and in tears and yelling, they agreed to see other people.

...then Jules ended up pregnant and moved away with Sebastian. Sebastian went into the Army and Jules entered a world of deployment and raising her children along. When she became the recipient of that terrible knock on the door, she decided to stay in Alaska because it was the only home her children knew.

Now it's been five years and she's going back home. The first non-family member she sees is Brody, and right away you can't help but feel for the man.

Brody and Jules's first conversation, free of an audience? My goodness gracious, my heart broke for the man. Brody still harbors hard feelings towards Jules for her decisions and for leaving him, but the two of them fall back into their comfortable selves rather quickly. 


There were parts that should have deemed this title a 4.5 on my rating scale, things such as:

  • Brody and Jules fell back into one another quickly
  • He was always around and she didn't question it right away
  • ...again, they fell back into one another quickly: eleven years is a long time and things/people change, so it shouldn't have been so seamless...
...but I was so engrossed in the emotion and the love, Brody's willingness to be there for her kids... I just loved Brody and Jules. Just loved them. And the epilogue? My goodness, Brody sure could evoke the tears in me.

This book could easily standalone -- no need for extra parts. But the fact that Brandace ends it's with "The End.... Maybe" and hints towards another part in Brody and Jules's life made me go all fan-girl (no pun). This is a coupling that I want to see again and again, and was rather sad that their's was a story told in only 118 pages.
