Should’ve Been Us by Jess Bryant
It’s a destination wedding, Fate, Texas style, and the thermostat isn’t the only thing about to hit its boiling point. Lulu Nichols has lost the love of her life. Her best friend, Derek, proposed to someone else. He’s marrying someone else. And oblivious to her feelings, he’s asked her to play best man at his wedding. She can’t say no, not without admitting her secret and ruining everything, so she pastes on a smile and heads to Mexico to watch the man of her dreams get his happily ever after, even if it isn’t with her. Connor Shaw is finally ready to claim the love of his life. He wants Lulu. He’s always wanted her. Even though she’s slightly crazy and seriously delusional about her relationship with Derek. Connor is the one that brings out her fire and matches it with his own. He’s the one that drives her just as crazy as she drives him and it’s way past time for her to admit that all their fighting is really just foreplay. Together they’re like gasoline and a match; a powder keg destined to blow, but oh how satisfying an explosion it will be. But is their spark the kind that burns fast and then out? Is the heat going to Lulu’s head or is there more to Connor than she’s ever realized? Could they possibly be meant for forever or are they destined to always be a should’ve been?
