Fate may take its own sweet time, but true love is worth the wait.
Kennedy Simms has grown weary of love passing her by, and she’s tired of her well-meaning but overprotective brother meddling in her life. When fate brings Kennedy a handsome, intelligent, and wealthy boyfriend, she thinks it’s finally her turn. But if William is her one and only, then why can’t she stop thinking about someone else?
Bryce Chambers has liked Kennedy from afar for too many years. She’s smart and beautiful and unfortunately, the sister of his very good friend and boss. Bryce abides by the Guy Code and tries to keep away from Kennedy, but when he can’t suppress his feelings any longer, Kennedy’s with the perfect William. Will Bryce find a way to move on with his life, or will fate finally bring him the love he’s been waiting for?
About Tamra Lassiter
I live outside Washington, D.C. with my wonderfully supportive husband and two daughters, one of which is approaching her teenage years. Help us all! If that isn’t enough, we have a Great Dane and an English Bulldog to keep us on our toes. It’s crazy around here, and I love every minute of it!
Writing is my third career. I didn’t set out to be a writer, it was just meant to be. My Mechanical Engineering degree from Virginia Tech prepared me well for my first career as an Engineer/Program Manager. My second career was in Human Resources. Long story, but I figured it out. I believe the best start for a writing career is to be a reader first, and I’ve been an avid reader my whole life. I’ve loved to read ever since I picked up my first Nancy Drew mystery in the fourth grade. Now, I love reading just about everything, but I don’t read sad books. I don’t watch sad movies either for that matter, no matter how many awards they’ve won. Life’s too short, and who needs all that strife to bring us down?
Many of my words have been penned late into the evening, which explains why I’ve never viewed whatever television show you recommend to me. I would, however, love to hear your recommendations for a great read!

I’m not really sure what to say about this book. The writing was great. The pacing was fine. It was an easy read without a lot of drama. I mean it kept me turning the pages and held my interest.
It’s just the whole scenario of the book didn’t work for me. First, Bryce was a bit of a pussy in my opinion. Too worried about ruining his friendship with Hunter (the heroine’s brother and his boss) to go after Kennedy. He just kisses her and then walks away for a YEAR. A year in which she figures Bryce choose his friendship with her brother over her so she moves on and gets involved with William.
Second, we spend 85% of the book with Kennedy involved with William and Bryce STILL being a pussy and making puppy dog eyes at her every chance he gets. The dude STANDS there when Kennedy’s boyfriend asks her to marry him and STILL doesn’t speak up. He just walks away. I was like WTF dude? Man the hell up!
Then we have an ending SO rushed it gave me whiplash. The “I Loves You’s” were flying, and this couple has NEVER even been on a date. Two kisses and one sex scene do not make a lasting relationship. I honestly felt more of a connection between Kennedy and William than I did her and Bryce. Sure William was a bit of a spoiled douche and I kept waiting for us to find out something about him. The author drops hints that there is something more going on with his family, but NOTHING ever comes out. So ultimately I just sort of ended up feeling bad for the guy.
Like I said, I really am confused on how to rate this. So I am going to go with 3 Stars based on the writing and the fact that it kept me interested and turning the pages. Bryce the pussy gets negative stars, though! *lol*
