Cora Renfro is trying to get over the fact that her boyfriend, Blake, just packed up one afternoon and walked away from her and their relationship without a word, note, or reason. She is miserable; she thought that they were going to have the happily ever after in life. When a hot and sexy coworker, Charlie, asks her out on a date, she decides it’s time to pick up the pieces of her shattered heart and move on with her life. What will happen though when Blake makes a surprise reappearance in Cora’s life? Will she allow him back into her life, or will she tell him to go to hell?
I loved the connection between Cora and Charlie when they started dating. She needed Charlie to not only heal her heart, but to also show what a true relationship is about. When Blake shows up unannounced I was yelling “No don’t even think of going back to that loser douchebag!!!”
This is a very short Novella;once I started it, I read it straight through with no breaks. The progression of the book was pretty fast, but it does not take away from the book. This is a good debut novel for Ms. Boyd and it shows that sometimes walking away is the best thing that can ever happen.
