From the New York Times bestselling author of Jake Undone, comes a friends-to-lovers story of longing, passion, betrayal and redemption...

Skylar was my best friend, but I secretly pined for her. One thing after another kept us apart, and I've spent the last decade in fear of losing her forever.

Because of me, she left town. For years, I thought I'd never see her again.

But now she's back...and living with him.

I don't deserve her after everything I've put her through, but I can't live without her. This is my last chance because she's about to make the biggest mistake of her life. I can see it her eyes: she doesn't love him. She still loves me...which is why I have to stop her before it's too late.

My Skylar is a STANDALONE story.

**5 Stars** I really enjoyed "Jake Undone" & didn't know if I would like "My Skylar" (just knew it would be so sad..& it is a tear jerker) I'm so glad I borrowed it/read it in 2 days! These characters are amazing...Skylar is so much like my best friend LoL says whats on her mine & just a all around wonderful character. Mitch is WoW what a man! I also liked how some of the chapters ended w/ a peak at what was going to happen next..."I didn't know then that the worst was yet to come" **Explicit Language & Love Scenes** **288 pages w/ a good Epilogue**

This was a very interesting story of second chances showing that true love will overcome all obstacles, trials and tribulations. Each person makes very stupid mistakes, so they both need a second chance to find real happiness.

Mitch and Skylar have a rocky road to travel. Twists and turns in their story finally bring about a HEA ending. Henry is special and Seamus is hilarious! I will be reading more from this author.

This was really good and so much drama! I loved how Mitch and Skylar meet and fall in love. Their love was really tested over time. I think what really bothers me was that Skylar was the one that caused every obstacle and trouble they went through. The leaving Mitch and then years later in the present time, she's with Kevin but still hangs out with Mitch. She has a hard time making a decision and here is Mitch laying his heart on the line. I understand that they both made mistakes and felt guilty for what they did to each other. Mitch just tried harder to fight for the girl he loves while Skylar is on the fence. I understand her situation too. I just hated how undecisive she was. Great story though!

A stunningly beautiful read. Eloquently and powerfully written, Mitch and Skylar's story will take you on a truly emotional journey, full of heartwrenching emotions, tears, laughter, joy, pain and, ultimately, redemption. It is a master class in contemporary romantic literature, beautifully crafted, designed to carry you along on the emotional journey of all the characters. Mitch and Skylar are two of the strongest leads I have read in a while. Ms. Ward is now one of my new favorite authors.

I got this book as a freebie on the Romance Read of the month Club and loved it! thesecretworldofbooklovers.blogspot I couldn't put it down, it's a heartbreaking story about two people that met when they didn't even know what love was, but have been in love with each other ever since. Mitch and Sky were best friends and then life got in the way and they had to part. But lucky for them the universe still had some plans for the two and they kept meeting through life, but the timing was always off. I found myself feeling sorry for them, life can't seem to give them a break and even though some might think of this story as a tragedy, it's really a Love story. Real life love, where there's pain, illness and overall things are not fair. The world tried to break them down but their love was always there, even through the unthinkable, when they thought there was nothing left, love found a way back. I connected with the characters in such a deep level, that I was unhappy when they were and I couldn't wait to keep reading to see if they were going to find their way back to each other. Even when they were doing the wrong thing, I still understood. Their love couldn't abide by the rules, it was timeless and couldn't be limited. They fought to do the right thing but they both realised in the end how miserable that made them. They couldn't breathe without the other, it was like leaving half a life. I'm in love with their story!

Loved this book! It was an emotional story. Mitch and Skylar meet when they're kids about 10 and 11, They become friends but after a few months Mitch has to move away. She sees him again when they are around 15 or 16 at a party. She does not like the person he has become but still stays his friends. Skylar becomes sick with cancer he sticks by her side. Eventually she is okay and they move on with their lives. This story has so many twists and turns. They finally try to be together but he finds out he got a girl pregnant and Skylar takes off. When they finally meet again Mitch is a dad with an Autism boy and Skylar is an engaged Interior Decorator. In the end they finally get together and have the life they always dreamed about.

I don't typically have such strong emotions to books that make me ugly cry. But, with this book, the story drew me in, kept me there, and then ripped every emotion out of me that I went through am entire box of tissues. I took my time with this book, savored each chapter, re-read when I had to stop, and was completely and totally wrapped into the story. Amazing read by an amazing author.

Unbelievable! This story was so touching and heart wrenching. I wanted to scream, cry and laugh all at the same time. I can't even articulate how wonderful the storytelling was in Skylar and Mitch's story. No lie, I wanted to throw my ereader more than a few times. Such a great story.

Unfortunately, I couldn't connect with these characters or the writing. The majority of the plot was told through internal dialogue that tended to slow the pacing.

I read it in one day so what does that tell you. P-dubs (I hope it's okay to call you was amazed by Skylar & Mitch's story from start to finish. The writing that went into intricately telling this heart-wrenching tale about finding the Love you'd never thought you'd have not once, but twice in a lifetime was amazing & felt so real as I was reading. You have definitely been added to my top newly discovered authors & I can't wait to read more by you! Happy Reading!!
