They wanted her to have a serious job, providing financial stability and social standing. For years, she really tried to make them happy; she studied hard, got into top schools, graduated with honors and found a high-achieving job.
But deep down, Marion was miserable. She never wanted to be a top executive, brokering deals in New York, London or Tokyo. Marion wanted to be… a ROMANCE WRITER. She wanted to spend her days in that good ol’ tracksuit of hers, in front of her laptop, popping down Oreos like there was no tomorrow. She wanted to fall in love with a different man each time she wrote the first line of a new book (while being happily married to the most handsome man in Great Britain).
That’s exactly what Marion does these days, and it makes her incredibly happy. She loves to share these happy vibes, talk book crush, fictional boyfriends and sexual chemistry with like-minded people. And because she spends most of her days on her own deep inside her writing cave, you are welcome to come and say “hello” from time to time. Just to make sure she doesn’t sink into insanity.
Her friends, family and arch-enemies (there are quite a few) will be forever grateful for your help.
A girl who needs to undo the past.
A boy who wants to forget it.
In love, there’s no way back.
At high school in Steep Hill, Kansas, Cassie O’Malley and Josh MacBride were the poster couple for quarterback/cheerleader romance until they starred in their own tale of teen pregnancy. No need to say: their shotgun wedding was low-key. But when there was no baby anymore, they went their separate ways.
Five years later, Josh has breezed through Georgetown and is about to finish his post-grad degree at Oxford University. He is set to join a lobbying group on Capitol Hill, owned by his new fiancée’s father. For Josh, the sky is now the limit… only he must first take care of a tiny legal matter: technically, he’s still married to the girl who broke his heart.
Meanwhile, Cassie has been waiting tables in Steep Hill to pay for her sick grandmother’s care. On the day of the old lady’s funeral, Cassie is served with two sets of papers. Josh is asking for a divorce. Her heart squeezes, but, well, he moved on a long time ago. But the second envelope shakes Cassie to the core. So, for the first time, she leaves Kansas and heads to good ol’ England.
There, Cassie finds that Josh has not just “moved on,” he’s freakin’ engaged to some blue-blooded heiress. The feelings Cassie had buried deep rush back to her. But no matter if he keeps thrusting the divorce papers under her nose, she needs him to save the only person she loves more than Josh, more than life itself…
No Reverse is a story about second chances, the beauty and ugliness of love, and sacrifice. Cassie and Josh were high school sweethearts. They were that popular couple that everybody knew and secretly wished to be. Then they got pregnant and everything changed. Josh is the kind of guy that is always going to do the right thing no matter what. He loved Cassie and was not going to leave her to raise their child alone. So they get married. Cassie loved Josh so much, and the fact that he gave up his dreams to stay with her and their baby was killing her inside, but fate steps in and they lose the baby.
Five years later both have moved on from that painful part of their lives. Josh is engaged and Cassie is still in their home town waiting tables. When she receives the divorce papers her heart breaks a little more. She had always known that this day would come, but it did not make it hurt any less. When she receives another shocking letter she seeks Josh out, and life changes for them once again.
This story grabs you right from the beginning. The love that Cassie and Josh have, even at an early age, is beautiful and strong. When they part ways you start to think it was not as strong as you were thinking, but one thing that this author does is so the good and the bad that comes with love. Even though they loved so fiercely, sometimes that love just isn’t enough.
This story will make you laugh, cry, yell in frustration, and sigh with contentment. Fans of Nicholas Sparks will love No Reverse. A must read that will touch your heart and make you believe in a love that can endure anything!
