About the Book

What would you do if the love of your life doesn’t want the same life you do?

Hadley Beckett has failed in not only her career, but as a daughter, friend, and girlfriend. Hadley’s longtime boyfriend, Finn Wilder, who is Richmond, Virginia’s local daredevil and favorite sportscaster, isn’t afraid of anything…almost. Hadley desperately wants a marriage and kids with him, the two things Finn infamously dreads.

Finn pressures Hadley into moving in with him, but being traditional, she wants to be married first and she wants to stick to her beliefs, just as he clings to his own. On the other hand, Finn has tolerated Hadley’s stubbornness long enough and he’s reaching his breaking point.

Fearing at 33 that she will soon be too old to have kids, Hadley wants Finn to change his mind and marry her, yet her insecurities about his public life and from his constant rebuffs have her questioning her aspirations. With conflicting advice from her friends, Hadley concludes she should take things into her own hands.

But then again, Finn Wilder has his own story to tell.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "Absolutely could not put this book down!!! Ren had me hooked from the very first page, I loved the different relationship dynamics between all of the characters [...]" - Trista Baldwin

- "[...] I fell in love with both Hadley AND Finn, and the supporting characters are just phenomenal. I cheered for them, cursed at them, wanted to throw things, and begged and pleaded. I neglected many, many things while reading this series. I can't wait for more from Ren. Fan for life." - LL Collins

- "Finn and Hadley are both in pursuit of a happily ever after with each other, although they have different ideas about what exactly their forever together should entail. I really fell in love with the couple, because of their genuine love for each other. I also enjoyed Hadley's two friends Morgan and Rod. Those two cracked me up many times while I was reading. I literally laughed out loud a few times.[...]" - Molly (Amazon)

- "[...] If you are looking for a great story with lots of laughs this is the perfect book for you. You will fall in love with Finn and Becks and quickly turn the pages trying to anticipate what their crazy friends will do. " - Trisha Ann

- "Finn and Hadley are chasing their happily ever after. It is hard to catch when that happily ever after doesn't look the same. They however genuinely love each other. I loved this story line and dual point of views. Ren did a wonderful job of developing characters that I could fall in love with. I highly recommend this book." - LovingNate (Amazon)
