This was a sweet book.  Kind of a weird way to categorize this one I know.  Long lost love, being a widow at 23.  But it was kind of a sad book at the same time. See, it was kind of that bad boy in love with the good girl book, but you really don’t even get that many elements of that.  It was truly a relationship book. The book focused on Sawyer, who, when she lived in Willowhaven was totally in love with Dean.  But Dean never felt totally worthy of Sawyer, so he left and Sawyer had to get on with her life. Fast forward six years and Sawyer is back in Willowhaven and putting her life back together after the brutal death of her husband and running into her ex all over the small town. I really liked the readability of this book.  I sat down and read this one in about two and a half hours.  Again, it was focused on the relationships that Sawyer had.  It is told in alternating viewpoints between Dean and Sawyer with flashbacks to the past to fill us in on the stories that had happened. I enjoyed the sequencing and the pace of the story. I found it easy to follow and well told. I also loved the side characters of Aiden and Alix or Felix as Sawyer calls her.  The tension between them is great and I can’t wait to read the book between them! Overall the book is fun and cute and just a great story!

Me After You by Mindy Hayes is an amazing book. Filled with angst and regret and guilt and first true love. Oh I was so hooked. I love when a book literally has me in its grip when the emotions run high. You know, that grip on your heart squeezing a little at the pain of your characters. Sawyer is back home much to her dismay. It's been weeks and nothing is getting easier. Nothing. Her husband is dead. ointlessly dead and he's never coming back. Now she' sback in Willowhaven where she swore she'd never be again and she's just learned Dean is back too. she's the only one that didn't know. Her mom, her best friend, they never said anything! Dean is her one that didn't just get away, he practically ran away screaming. She thought him leaving her was going to kill her but she picked up and moved to Seattle and met Grayson. But now he's gone too. Dean didn't think he'd ever see Sawyer again, but now maybe he has a chance to set things right. If she will let him. Oh, and while he's doing that he should probably decide what to do with his girlfriend Lily. What a mess. He left for a reason but never told her why. He didn't mean to come back to Willowhaven but perhaps it's fate that they both be here now. Or maybe it's just a dandelion wish. A beautiful must-read (pack your own tissues, chocolate and wine)!

I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Itching for Books and Mindy Hayes for giving me the opportunity to read Me After You. Started reading this story and my first questions was: Is the author trying to make me cry or what? The beginning of the book was so sad I was sobbing and I couldn’t stop. I was afraid to keep reading; I thought I couldn’t handle such a sad story. But it get’s better and I loved the entire story. The roller coaster the author created was perfect! Sawyer Hartwell needs to get back home in Willowhaven. She has lived the last couple of years in Seattle with her husband Grayson. Unfortunately, she becomes a widow at the age of 25 years old, because her husband gets killed. As if loosing the one she loves wasn’t enough, she is practically forced to move because she in over head buried in debt. So, she packs everything up and leaves everything behind, thinking she can make another life home. Sawyer didn’t realize that back home was where she met Grayson and it’s full of memories. She promises herself she will never love again, she won’t open her heart again just to me broken. Dean Preston it’s another troubled soul. He regrets even now after all these years, they day he hoped on his bike and left his town, his family and his one true love, Sawyer. Returning home wasn’t easy for him, but he tries to start a new life, possibly a family with a new girl, Lily. But, Dean doesn’t feel like Lily is the one and only for him. After a while he ends up bumping into Sawyer and his feelings get even stranger. Is he still in love with Sawyer? Can he ever love Lily the way he loves Sawyer? Getting to read and to know Dean and Sawyer was an interesting journey. The first couple of times they have accidentally met, Sawyer tried to keep her distance, being scared she is going to suffer again. I understood her, but at the same time, I thought she was really struggling too much to keep away from Dean. I sensed the connection and the love between this two from the start, although I could sense the pain, the sorrow and the regrets as well. This was the perfect book for me, especially because it was from alternative points of view! It was a combination that leads to real life stories. Loved it! I highly recommend this book!

He takes a step toward me and I bolt. This can't be happening. I can't handle any more bombs right now. And Dean Preston is a bomb with the power to decimate my entire world. What's left of it, anyway. *** Forced to go home to the one place she swore to never return, Sawyer comes face to face with her past. A past full of pain and secrets. A past that is confronting her at every turn. Will Sawyer be able to move on and get past the hurt? Or will it end up consuming all of her? *** I don't want you. Those were his last words before he walked out of my life completely. You don't realize what damage those four words can have until you hear them aimed at you from the person you love the most in the world. *** I hate how long it took for every truth to come out. More than half the book I am wracking my brain to know what it was that made Dean drive Sawyer away and him out of Willowhaven. But I can happily say that it was a love-hate. Because I also loved that it happened. I know it had to happen. Had the author told us from the get go the story would have been done and over. Sort of. Because more secrets spill from the pages when we learn of Dean's mystery send off. Secrets he isn’t prepared to be dealt. It was a book full of secrets, pain and heartbreaks. I loved Sawyer. I loved that she never discounted her love for either man in her life. She owned up to her feelings and that made her such a wonderful person in my eyes. Had she have told us that her feelings for her husband were never really there I would have quit the book at the moment it was revealed. But I whole heartedly love her for the person she was. This book pushed and pulled at me. It took and it gave. And when I finished the last sentence I had a smile on my face. ME AFTER YOU was wonderfully written and had such a clean, yet beautiful romance that peppered the pages. This was such an amazing story for any and all. 5 Stars!
