It’s a destination wedding, Fate, Texas style, and the thermostat isn’t the only thing about to hit its boiling point.
Lulu Nichols has lost the love of her life.
Her best friend, Derek, proposed to someone else. He’s marrying someone else. And oblivious to her feelings, he’s asked her to play best man at his wedding. She can’t say no, not without admitting her secret and ruining everything, so she pastes on a smile and heads to Mexico to watch the man of her dreams get his happily ever after, even if it isn’t with her.
Connor Shaw is finally ready to claim the love of his life.
He wants Lulu. He’s always wanted her. Even though she’s slightly crazy and seriously delusional about her relationship with Derek. Connor is the one that brings out her fire and matches it with his own. He’s the one that drives her just as crazy as she drives him and it’s way past time for her to admit that all their fighting is really just foreplay.
Together they’re like gasoline and a match; a powder keg destined to blow, but oh how satisfying an explosion it will be.
But is their spark the kind that burns fast and then out? Is the heat going to Lulu’s head or is there more to Connor than she’s ever realized? Could they possibly be meant for forever or are they destined to always be a should’ve been?

This has to be one of the best books that I have read in a long time – it strays away from my typical book that I read, but I am so glad that I did. I absolutely loved the way that the book began and I instantly felt a connection to Lulu. My heart broke for her that she was dealing with the loss of the man she loved – as she had to watch him marry someone else. As soon as Connor walked into the bar – I knew, you could feel the chemistry sizzling out of the book and the connection the two had. I knew that he had this unrequited love for her – and felt the same way she felt for Derek, it must have killed him all this time watching her pine for someone else. I loved the chemistry and the heat between the two – you knew the first time that they would be together would be electric – the heat sizzling off the blankets – and it was. I loved the way the two feed off of each other, the banter, the silliness and how much Connor really did “love” her. If you are looking for something sweet, genuine, funny and romantic – then Should’ve Been Us is the book for you. I absolutely adored this book and definitely recommend it as a MUST read. It by far is one of the best books that I have ever read – and probably the best book that I have read this year. I loved Lulu and Connor and all the other characters who make up this sweet, charming book. Jess Bryant has a new fan – I must read more of her works, as this one was such a great read. I am so happy that I took a chance on this book and I absolutely enjoyed it. Make sure you add Should’ve Been Us to your To-Be-Read shelf, as you wont be disappointed.
