Amanda Conrad aka
@BootsMD's cousin Olivia Bloom aka Liv is finally getting married. After a
whirlwind romance and life in the
tabloids as the other woman ever since she fell head over heels and in love
with the lead singer of the band Brightside Berkley. Whisked to South Africa, this is not only the trip of
a lifetime as she is the maid of honor at her cousin's wedding. It is also her
last trip anywhere for a while as she is about to start her residency as a
Doctor and hopefully get the position in Plastics that she has been aiming for.
During the wedding party, Amanda meets Mark. He is the bass player for
Brightside and lately he has been trying to go his way with music and started a
band called Coconut Teazer. During the trip in South Africa and a Safari hunt, Mark and Amanda connect and spend a
glorious night together before reality hits,
and they are both back to their real lives. Months pass and Amanda is working
hard at work and Mark with his band when they run into each other, Amanda never
stopped thinking of him but doesn't know if he feels the same. One thing leads
to another and when a tragedy occurs - it gives Amanda an epiphany to live her
life and do something spontaneous, this
act leads her to head on tour with Mark (
as a friend) but what happens when she knows she feels more and jealousy strikes and she ends up getting hurt.
This part annoyed me as it was like a child tantrum and full-on pity party.
It's like why didn't she tell Mark how she felt as HELLO he cares about her
too. This last leaving pushed them both to the brink, and they left without a word to one another, and we read as they both go along with their lives, but of
course something is missing for both of them. The love they had for one
another. Can Mark prove to Amanda that she isn't just another notch on the
bedpost and that he does love her just like Berkley and Liv do? One of my favorite
parts of this book was near the last chapter when we see the final rise of
Amanda and Mark's relationship. This part filled my heart with glee.
I am now looking forward to heading back to the earlier
two books in the series and reading more about the family and their
