Synopsis from Goodreads:

Now that Emma and Layla Carson have landed the men of their dreams, it’s time for happily ever after. Or is it?

Emma’s with childhood crush Cole Marlowe, and Layla finally found Mr. Right in alpha cop Ben Montrose. But both couples face unexpected obstacles that will test their relationships. Layla and Emma find solace in each other as battle lines are drawn, and they rediscover the close friendship they lost over Cole.

It’s all on the line as the sisters struggle to find the answer to the most difficult question they’ve ever faced: is the love they have now meant to last forever?

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

Rothert does a great deal of jumping back and forth between the two storylines. Both of the stories stay straight and separate without detracting from each other, but there’s a whole lot going on. This is one of those cases where the book really could have been split into 2 stories giving the reader a much more in-depth taste of each couple’s trials. That said, the story is presented in a well written, approachable style that is easy to immerse yourself in. Rothert tells the story of a pair of real life, real world romances in a way that allows you to feel for and connect with the characters

I’ve got to say, however. I wanted to beat Em with a pillow a few times in this one. She acts like a spoiled baby too often. She may be the youngest character in the book, but seriously… And all 4 of the main characters had the same basic outlook. It was a case of ‘I’m right, I’m right, I’m right. Fine, I’m wrong.’

Overall, this was a quick, enjoyable read. I’d definitely suggest reading the first two novels in the series first so that you know what’s going on.
