Blurb

Ever since she was a little girl, thirty-year-old Rose dreamed of the day Harley would carry her across the threshold on their honeymoon. So what if this isn’t her actual wedding day, and that she’s only here because Harley was left at the altar just a few hours earlier?

Trading San Francisco for paradise and swapping her bridesmaid’s bouquet for a Blue Hawaii, Rose hopes she can finally escape the friend zone.

Once upon a time they had been more than friends, but life got in the way. She’s spent every day since wishing Harley would get a clue.

She’s always been his best friend.

He’s always been hers.

She’s in love with him.

He’s … not in love with her.

He’s … marrying someone else.

He’s … hiding something.

He’s … well—it’s complicated.

my-review

This is my first book by Carmen – I know, I know.  Where have I been?  I do have her books on my TBR list, I just have never had the opportunity to read any of them. Til now.

“He holds me, but he doesn’t promise a thing, because we both know it’s one he can’t keep.”

Harley & Rose has left me slightly conflicted.  I love Carmen’s writing – no problems there.  I enjoyed going from the past to present and watching Harley and Rose grow. I liked watching things blossom between Harley and Rose.  What sort of irked me was it didn’t really seem like either grew up,  Yes, they became adults and got jobs and both are successful in that right.  But they still acted like they did in high school and college – very juvenile.  And that just ate at me.

Thankfully that didn’t take away from the heart of the story.  These two deeply love each other but they also hurt one another just as much.  They’re both selfish in that way but also didn’t want to hurt the other by holding one another back.  Harley and Rose go through a lot together and yet they still always came back to one another.  And that’s what I loved most.  Plus the added Peter Pan references really had me loving this book.

“I’ll be waiting, Wendy. Second star to the right.  I’ll be waiting.”

The ending  – yea.  Some people are going to hate it and some will love it.  And some will be like me and go, “huh.”  Yes, I had a pretty good idea what was going to happen but I still felt everything that characters went through.  However, again, I just felt Harley and Rose were not acting their age up to this point.  In the end, I felt they were finally acting like the adults they should have been the whole time.

“Pan finally grew up, and the world is a lonelier place because of it.”

Overall, I know people will enjoy this book.  It’s a great story and Carmen’s writing really keeps you drawn to the story.  And yes, I will be reading more from her in the future.

excerpt

He doesn’t make it five yards before the truck slams to a stop, its red taillights hovering, taunting me in the early SF morning. He isn’t moving, but I’m on autopilot. One step, two steps, my feet swallow the ground between us, and then he’s out of the truck, catching me up in his big arms as I wrap myself around him and smash my lips down on his, kissing him in a way that the parentals probably wished they weren’t privy to.

When our kisses return to gentle sorrowful pecks I pull back and whisper, “I love you, Pan.”

“Wendy, my Wendy,” he says breathlessly. “You wait for me. You wait for me or I’m going to come back and gut the asshole who takes my place.”

“No one ever could take your place,” I tell him. He nods, setting me on my feet and smoothing the hair back from my forehead.
