Have you ever thought of packing up everything you own and moving halfway across the country?

I’m talking about leaving your entire life behind—friends, family, school—with no turning back. No? Me either, but that was before a week of spring break changed my life forever. Before I did something I never thought I’d do at twenty-two. Before I fell in love with Grey.

Sometimes happily ever after isn't always what you think it will be.



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story starts off after the first book in this series Kissing Eden.
Eden is driving down from Chapel Hill to South Padre to now begin living with Grey at the Palm. She expects nothing to go without a few bumps on the road, but what she doesn't prepare for is a whole ditch, making things definitely go awry. With newcomers at the Palm, out-of-the-blue relatives, and a wedding to attend, will Grey and Eden ever get to live there intended life together?

This book is one of those that are quaint and simplistic in story-telling. Less is more. This book is, in a way, a bunch of goodness with less material which I think is a great feat to accomplish as a writer. The plot in itself was not all that out there, it was a bit practical, although not all that predictable in some cases. There was conflict, but not enough to actually cause total chaos. Everything seemed totally fine and dandy even when things didn't go quite as planned, according to the characters' perspective.

Eden's persona was definitely something to envy, and cherish, and never taken for granted. She was in a way realistic in her choices, but very naive in others. But when it comes to love, there are no rules. Grey is much older, literally, but in the way he acts makes him seem much older. Take his position with the Palm for instance. Very manly, a bit of rough edges, good with his hands, smart, loyal, and a high sex drive are very promising attributes.

A bunch of things were brought to light. Under pressure, a lot of the characters had a moment, or two, when they just bugged out. Not uncommon. Many obstacles were overcome, and set upright. After Grey found about about his Grandfather and Uncle, it was obvious that Grey was effected, as was his Uncle. They both sort of felt the same but for different reasons that were practically two sides of the same coin.

Overall, this was a great read that I could not put down. Although this wasn't my favorite, considering I read Foster's Fly first, which is my favorite, it was nonetheless still very enjoyable and had tons of laughs and squeals throughout reading. I will always be looking forward to reading more of Foster's work.
