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…

I was given this book awhile ago and kept putting it off then I decided it was time to read it. I'm so glad that I finally did. I didn't get hooked until the 4th chapter then I couldn't put it down.
My heart goes to anyone who has to make such tough life altering decisions at young ages then have to deal with the consequences of those choices.
For Cassie she has always loved Josh MacBride but makes a huge choice thinking it was the right one at the time for it to come back and kick her ass.
For Josh he can't forgive Cassie for what she's done and moves on with a new love.
As Josh is trying to finally move forward, Cassie has to go to Josh to tell him the truth.
With secrets, betrayal and lies hovering over their heads it is hard for Josh and Cassie to find a middle ground.
At times I was so frustrated with Josh moving on and with Cassie always being so selfless but in the end they finally get their second chance of true love.
