An Unexpected Journey
by Taryn Plendl
Four years ago I lost my best friend. Abby was the only girl I’d ever loved and she just walked away without so much as a goodbye.
It’s taken four year to get her in the same place as me. I love her still. My heart belongs to her. She owns me. Now I’m going to get the answers I’ve always needed and hopefully win her heart back in the process.
This time she can’t run. She is stuck with me at sea. She doesn’t know it yet, but she will soon.
Our journey is just beginning, and I’m going to get my girl.
This is such a sweet, yet steamy second chance romance. A misinterpreted kiss sends Abby running for college and away from Jay, the boy who’d had her heart since they met as kids. When she runs, she takes a broken heart and a very big secret with her. She doesn’t speak to Jay for four years, but never forgets him.
Jay hasn’t forgotten Abby either and goes to great lengths to be around her again, so he can finally find out what drove her away, and make her his again….for good, this time.
I liked Jay and Abby a lot. Their renewed courtship was a pleasure to watch. I thought Mellie was a spunky addition, and the perfect voice of reason – how many of us have older family members who have lost their filter with age? I felt like Abby’s little freak out during their time on the cruise might not have been necessary, but that’s a minor gripe.
If you’re looking for a hot little beachy read, Ms. Plendl’s got one for you!
It wasn’t until well into adult hood that she discovered, late at night while the house was quiet, that she had just as many stories inside her just waiting to be let out. Writing has been a way for her to step away from reality and live a bit through her fun and sometimes damaged characters. You will almost always find a Happy Ever After at the end of her stories. She can’t help it, it’s an addiction.
She’s a Southwestern girl living a Mid-Atlantic life with her husband of seventeen years and two incredible daughters who inspire her daily. She is proud to be an advocate for her child with autism, and feels incredibly blessed to be able to see the world through her eyes. Her daughters teach her more than she could ever teach them.
She enjoys reading, writing and spending time with her family, but cherishes those quiet nights after everyone is asleep when she can curl up on the couch with her sixteen year old dog. (Shh, don’t tell…He’s not supposed to be on the couch.)
Keep an eye out for more from her!
