    SO GOOD!!! 😍😍😍 I have got to stop reading teasers for the next book before I write my review for the book I just finished. I’m emotionally wrung out from a couple of pages and DESPERATE for more information about Love for Beginners. The Forever Girl was bloody good but it was also pretty sad. Maze, the troublemaker, Caitlin, the bossy boots, Heather, the terrible secret keeper, and Walker, the Bond … a wee bit James Bond and a lot, bonding agent keeping them all connected. These guys are not blood SO GOOD!!! 😍😍😍 I have got to stop reading teasers for the next book before I write my review for the book I just finished. I’m emotionally wrung out from a couple of pages and DESPERATE for more information about Love for Beginners. The Forever Girl was bloody good but it was also pretty sad. Maze, the troublemaker, Caitlin, the bossy boots, Heather, the terrible secret keeper, and Walker, the Bond … a wee bit James Bond and a lot, bonding agent keeping them all connected. These guys are not blood-related, but they are still family. They have survived a terrible accident and are connected because of the loss of someone they loved. Unfortunately, their survival is also a weighty burden and sometimes they need space to deal with their grief. With Caitlin’s wedding in the town where some of their fondest memories are, they must come together again. Maybe this time they can get past their hurt and learn to forgive each other and themselves for surviving. Sometimes, I find it hard to connect with emotionally unavailable heroines. In this case, though, I completely understood Maze, connected with her, and found myself agreeing with some of her choices. I understood her frustration when the wrong decisions of her youth seemed to taint her future. I felt the burden of her guilt and wished I could lighten her load. I think protecting her heart was the right decision to make until Maze learnt to love herself and accept help from those who love her. It’s time for Maze to stop being emotionally unavailable and accept and give love to her family … especially the one man who has always held her heart. Walker has had a lot of people walk away from him. Sometimes, he keeps following just to make sure they don’t need him. Other times he lets them walk away and hopes they will come back. Honestly, for Walker, he can count on one hand the people he wants in his life. Two, are the only parents who matter to him. Two, are the sisters of his heart, and he will always have their backs. One, is the woman who broke his heart … but, "the heart wants what it wants". Walker has kept an eye on his woman but he also let her walk away hoping she’d come back. Now, it’s time for both Walker and Maze to stop running away from love. Geez, I love the way Jill Shalvis makes me cry. Crazy, I know. She just manages to pull my heartstrings enough to get my emotions up but not too much that a kind word or loving gesture can’t fix it. It has been a long time since I’ve sat down and read a book for a couple of hours straight. I could have finished The Forever Girl last night but I knew that I’d be up until the cows come home trying to write my review. So, I kept an hour’s worth of reading left so I could write my review after a good night’s sleep. It was bloody hard to put it down though but, I was determined to not write gobbledygook. Not sure I accomplished it, but I gave it my best shot. 😉 Wildstone is the kind of series where you don’t have to read each instalment one straight after the other. They are not interconnected except for where they are set. So, if you haven’t tried a Jill Shalvis yet, The Forever Girl could be a good place to start … or, you could start at the very beginning, a very good place to start. I'm a huge fan of this author and I highly recommend all of Jill Shalvis' books. Stacey is Sassy, received an advanced copy of this story.

Last week at the dog park, they’d terrorized a big dog into peeing on them. She’d kept all this bottled in because . . . well, that’s what she did, always. There were lots of corked bottles of emotion deep inside her. “Healthy relationships are about the three Cs.” “Calamity, cluelessness, and catastrophe?” Maze asked. Somewhere along the way, she’d become the sidekick in her own story. Oh my God… I can’t go to jail, who’ll take care of Sammie? And plus there’s scratchy toilet paper in jail, and I’m too short for the orange coveralls they make you wear! You don’t need to be in the beginning of a child’s story to change the ending. My Review: This story carried considerably more angst than any Jill Shalvis book I’ve ever read. Not that I’ve read a lot of them, but it was a noticeable difference when contrasted with the brilliance of her previous works that I’ve been lucky enough to lay my greedy and grubby hands on. The majority of said angst radiated out of the main character of Maze, who was difficult for me to warm up to as Maze took stubbornness to a new level of tenacious obstinance. I grew to care for her, although I still wanted to periodically give her a few smacks with my Kindle to disrupt her egocentrism. As always, Ms. Shalvis’s writing was easy to follow, cleverly nuanced, well-paced, and amusingly engaging with a compelling cast of complex and quirky characters. The storylines and issues combated were relevant and relatable to many regardless of family situation, as every family unit has at least a few obnoxious members if not an entire limb on the family tree, or as in the case of mine, riddled with a plethora of pervasive pestilence starting from the root level and extending to the very top leaf. ;)

Sometimes. Not often. And when I do, Jill Shalvis is my go to. Whenever I'm in the mood for a read with plenty of feels that will give me a butterflies and a satisfied smile in the end, a Jill Shalvis book is a no brainer. The Forever Girl was a beautiful story of a family formed in bond rather than blood, second chances and growth. Maze is an orphan that's seen the ugly side of family before learning the ugly side of foster homes. She's never healed her mental scars and she's never stopped running because leaving is easier than being left behind. She comes back to town for the wedding of her foster sister and gets reunited with her foster family that she left behind but never in her mind. They were once as close as they can get, until tragedy tore them apart. There's Caitlin, the sweet bridezilla, Heather the baby sister, and Walker, the man that held her heart. First of all, if you love swoon heroes, it just doesn't get better than Walker. He's the silent protector. An FBI agent and a man with a heart of gold but with plenty of his own demons. I fell fast and hard for him. And when we start getting more and more insight into his connection with Maze, I couldn't get enough of it. Maze is a runner. She runs from her feelings and she runs from her guilt that she continues to harbor years later. This is a heartfelt and beautiful story of the family you build and forgiveness. It's a story of growth and second chances. It's also a story of a once in a lifetime kind of love. You get multiple POVs including Maze, Walker, and Caitlin. There's also a secondary and incredibly satisfying story for Heather which I absolutely loved. If you're looking for a sweet and incredibly fulfilling read, look no further. This one will bring all of the feels. ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest review Find me on:

Heather, Walker, and Maze were all foster children taken in by Caitlin’s parents, and they were inseparable. Then tragedy tore them apart and they went their separate ways.

Once they were all a family. Heather, Walker, and Maze were all foster children taken in by Caitlin’s parents, and they were inseparable. Then tragedy tore them apart and they went their separate ways. But while some reunited or at least kept tabs on one another, Maze has always kept everyone at arm’s length. Now Caitlin is getting married and she is determined to have the siblings of her heart with her. The reunion is awkward at first, especially for Maze, who carries the burdens of guilt and hurt with her everywhere. But Maze quickly realizes that each of them has secrets and hurts and even resentments they’ve kept to themselves for far too long. And she also realizes her feelings for Walker have never abated. When you’ve always been hurt and disappointed, how do you find the courage to still let people in? How do you know when to trust people that say they love you? When is it time to stop running every time something gets difficult? The Forever Girl was a moving story about chosen family and the bonds of friendship and love. It’s also a story about recognizing that everyone makes mistakes, and sometimes we can’t make decisions based on what we assume people think and feel. I really liked the characters and felt emotionally invested in this story. My only criticism is that everyone tiptoed around their issues and didn’t want to be honest about what they felt about anything. But in many cases you can see why. I’ve been meaning to read a Jill Shalvis book for a long while since so many people rave about her, and now I can go through her backlist!!

Like, really loved it. The Wildstone series is a hybrid of romance and women's fiction, perfect for those who need the romance aspect in their stories. THE FOREVER GIRL gives us Maze, Walker, Heather and Caitlin and while these characters couldn't be more different they have this deeply-rooted love for one another, an almost indestructible connection. Maze, Walker and Heather have one thing in common - they were abandoned by the people that were supposed to love them most. All three of them had their parents turn their backs on them. But they were also so lucky being fostered by Caitlin's parents. From the beginning, they are more family than strangers, filling an empty space inside them with their love for one another. Until tragedy strikes that scatters them in different directions, which leaves their relationship strained. "You guys are the mac to my cheese.” Caitlin wants her family back together so she more or less forces them to stay with her and rebuild what they used to have. Maze has always been the wild child, the one who was up to no good, fearless unless it comes to relationships. A fear Walker, the protector in the group, felt on a deep level, when Maze ran from him after a wild night in Vegas. Heather, now a single mom, was the mischievous one, now trying to survive and make ends meet every single day Every single one in this group puts a lot of work into mending their banged-up ties. I felt that Maze especially made huge progress. She's a master at deflection yet with her people back in her life she learns how to address her issues and work through them. "I’ve been with you, and I’ve been without you. And I learned one thing with absolute certainty: my life’s better with you. You know where I stand. I love you, Maze. There are no doubts for me. All that’s left is for you to get off the fence, on one side or the other.” I adored Walker, who along with Caitlin was the steady rock, reliable and despite the complicated nature of all of their relationships always there to help the others. And I cheered Heather on when she found happiness in her life. Some of my favorite moments were the ones Sammie, Heather's daughter, made an appearance. She stole the show. Jill Shalvis's WILDSTONE series is among my favorites. I love the way she portrays her characters but the way she describes the family dynamics and bond between friends feels so real, heartfelt and visceral. THE FOREVER GIRL was an absolute delight and shows you that blood doesn't always create the strongest bonds. There were so many lovely moments, so many that had me tear up because of the warmth and love between these characters. And some that made me laugh out loud or threw me in fits of giggles. The romance was amazing - complicated, a little angsty and satisfying. Best swoons you'll have this year! Jill Shalvis brings her A-game with this one and I'm really looking forward to the next book in this series! “Turns out, home’s not a place, not for me. It’s you, Maze. You’re my home.” PS. A book for Caitlin would be amazing!

Despite this being the sixth book in the Wildstone series, it works well as a standalone. In this new book, the reader meets Maze, Walker, Caitlin and Heather. The story began with them gathering for their yearly graveside visit, which began after the tragic accident that led to them being separated. Tension and guilt led to a massive blow-up creating a chasm within their relationship. Through it all, they never ceased keeping tabs on each other, though for a distance. Three years later Caitlin is getting married, but her big day would not mean much if her family was not there to celebrate with her. She doesn’t want one day, so she devises a plan to have there for the week leading up to the wedding. Not only does she want them at her wedding, but she hopes to re-establish the bond they once shared before tragedy struck. I had a great time getting to know these characters, who despite their imperfections and emotional scars, demonstrated strength and courage in facing their demons head on. They made mistakes along the way, but they owned it and were bold enough to make amends. The Forever Girl took me on an emotional journey of friendship, family bonding, healing, forgiveness, second chances and rebirth. It dealt with hard-hitting issues, which readers can relate to. This installment came with a lot of anxious moments, however, Shalvis included some humorous situations which helped to lighten things a bit. Maze and Walker’s back and forth as they tried to work through their issues was enough to give the reader a whiplash. It warmed my heart to see them finally getting it right the second time around. The story also delivered a secondary romance, which I found adorable. Overall, I had a good time with this story and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Fans of Shalvis will enjoy her latest offering. This review was originally posted on Totally Addicted to Reading

When I picked this book up, I planned to read about half of it if I could but by the end of the day, I had finished it because it was simply too good to put down. Cat is getting married and she wants her family to be with her in the week leading up to the big day. Maze, Heather, and Walker are the foster kids that lived with her family for one wonderful year until tragedy struck and she considers them to be her family. The group has gone their separate ways during the past three years and they have some catching up to do and some wounds to heal. Cat is determined to bring everyone back together so that they can reestablish the close bond they once shared. Maze and Walker have a little secret that the others don't know about. Nobody knows about that weekend in Vegas that they shared years ago but neither of them can forget. Maze and Walker had fantastic chemistry and I thought that they were absolutely perfect together. I love that they shared a past and had so much in common with each other. All of the characters in this book have been through a lot and while the events from the past have stayed with them, they are working hard to have the best life they can. I loved watching Maze and Walker work through their issues and try for a second chance. This book was very well written. I love the fact that the book dealt with some pretty tough issues but was also able to make me laugh. The relationships between all of the characters changed and grew throughout the book and I loved the way that things progressed in a way that felt authentic. I liked that the relationships between the core group of characters were as much of a focus as the romance between Maze and Walker. There is even a bonus romance to keep things even more interesting. I would highly recommend this book to others. I found this book to be filled with fantastic characters, the perfect dose of humor, and a lot of heart. I cannot wait to read more from this fantastic author. I received an advanced review copy of this book from William Morrow Paperbacks.

I find that especially true with this particular series. The Women’s Fiction mixed with romance usually works for me, but for some reason, I found myself putting this book down very often and it took me quite a long time to finish it. It may be the characters or the concept of this book, but I often find the books of this series to be a bit of a downer. There are some light and funny moments of course. Shalvis’s humor always brings that in, but I don’t always think it fits the situation or the character the way it does with her Romance series. That being said, I guess I will just have to see if the next book will be a hit for me!

Siblings of the heart... There's alot going on in this one, as with all the previous books in the series you get the story from multiple POV's as well as a plethora of characters dealing with their own personal issues as the plot between them all plays out. Maze and Walker's reconnection is the biggest point for me, but Cat and her wedding also take a pivotal part in the story especially in the second half, as well as the thing that binds them all together, the fire that burned Cats parents house down and took her younger brother near onto a decade ago. "We're going to have to talk eventually..." Love, laughs, drama, angst and plenty of characters to keep things moving along steadily The Forever Girl takes you on the journey with Maze, Walker and Cat, towards their new normals, and I really enjoyed being on the rollercoaster with them.

    I’ve had this story read and ready to review for a while now, but I couldn’t quite figure out how to say what I wanted to say without 1) going into details that would give away the plot and 2) sounding like I didn’t like/enjoy the book. But time is up and it is release day so … I’m not to sure this story even comes close to romance fiction, even tho there is a romantic element, because it is overshadowed by everything else that is happening in the book.

If you’re a Shalvis fan and have read this series in particular in the past, then you should know there is going to be at least two main focus journeys with maybe a few other secondary ones floating by in the background. I am one of those fans LOL I don’t think this woman has a published book I haven’t read. The problem I had with this book’s storylines is that in order to be told in depth enough, a novel the size of Moby Dick is needed. If you don’t get the reference, I can’t help you LOL In other words, for me, it felt like too much was happening and not enough was being focused on so everything just seemed to be skimmed. I really loved this story and what it could have been, but what it was, was very disappointing to a super fan like myself. See, it sounds like I didn’t enjoy the read, but I did! It just had the potential to be so much more and quite frankly, Shalvis has the ability for far better.

    The Forever Girl easily became one of my favorite Jill Shalvis books! Secrets came to light, family and friendship were tested and through it all was the most breathtaking bond between this group of people. Watching the story unfold, it felt as though these characters reached into my heart and wouldn't let go. And while I cried three different times, there was so much hope and love splashed across those pages.

Watching the story unfold, it felt as though these characters reached into my heart and wouldn't let go. And while I cried three different times, there was so much hope and love splashed across those pages. If you're a fan of Jill Shalvis, romance or stories where friendship is family, then definitely pick this one up! This story reads like a standalone, so you can definitely start with this book if you haven’t read any of the others in this series. “Don’t you get it?” she whispered. “There is no redemption for me.” Maze, Cat, Walker and Heather were like a family forever ago. Until a horrific tragedy ripped them apart and settled them away from one other. But with Cat's upcoming wedding, they were all going to be together again. The prologue started three years in the past, and we got to see how raw their emotions were. While it alluded to what was the cause of their pain, we didn't know the details just yet. But it all ended with an emotional bang. So when we jumped into the present, a chapter later, I was more than hooked and obsessed. It was stunning how these characters captured my heart so easily. “I wasn’t aware that we were friends.” “Actually, I consider you one of the very few real ones I have.” She sucked in a breath at that. Because in spite of everything, same. This story alternated between Maze, Cat and Walker. Cat was like the big sister to everyone. And she tried her best, over the years, to keep everyone in each other's lives. But the past and hurt was too much, and over time some of them faded apart. With Cat’s upcoming wedding, I thought I'd love her fiancé and wedding activities. But each character had so much more going on than meets the eye. And I found my heart hurting for every single one of them, while silently cheering them on so they would each find their happiness. “Maze, you’re the strongest woman I know.” She blinked, looking so surprised that he grabbed her hand and squeezed it. “Believe it. Because I absolutely do.” She let out a shaky breath. “I wish I could be as confident about that as you.” While I adored them all, my heart connected the deepest with Maze. She blamed herself for something that happened in the past. And because of that, she didn't give herself the grace and love she deserved. But Maze was so much more than her grief. She loved deeply and would do anything to help those she loved. Maze made me laugh, smile and I loved the risks she would take. I was rooting for her to help mend the sisterly relationship she had with Cat and Heather. But most of all, I was rooting for her to face her feelings towards Walker. No matter how hard he tried, he was always left standing alone with no one to count on except himself. But at least now he was choosing to be alone. His choice, his control, and he was okay with that. Or he had been. Until he’d seen Maze again. I loved Walker! I was obsessed that we got his POV! Walker was seductive and there was this darkness that radiated from him, yet he continually pulled me in. And while he loved fiercely and saw through others b.s., he was such a mystery at times. I wanted him to claim Maze as his, because you could feel how strong their connection and attraction was. Plus their banter constantly had me smiling. Yet their past made it not so simple. So the push and pull between the two of them enamored me and I was constantly wondering what was going to happen next. “I’m sorry,” she said softly. “I failed you. I won’t let that happen again.” “We won’t let that happen again,” Caitlin said firmly. Heather nodded, eyes suspiciously bright. “Me either.” With family, friendship and love splashed across the pages, The Forever Girl was an instant favorite. Hearts were broken and mended. Family was pulled apart and put back together. We got to witness their process for healing and it was raw and breathtaking. This story was so beautiful. I loved their hearts to hearts and how deeply they loved each other. From strawberry daiquiri moments, to truth or date, to races and wedding festivities, I couldn't put this story down. And with that epilogue, oh I loved this book so much! If you’re a fan of romance, friendship and family, then definitely want this one! PS I love how Walker called Jace all the wrong names to Maze, I laughed so hard. PPS I looked forward to seeing what was on the to-do list at the beginning of each chapter! Sooooo cute! PPPS I loved, loved, loved Heather and Sammie! Plus I definitely called it! *I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book, provided by the publisher.

    I am a huge Shalvis fan. So when asked to review this book I jumped on it. It can be read as a stand alone but it is the sixth book in the Wildstone series. The writing is wonderful and so realistic and the characters are easy yo connect with. I gave this book 4 stars and I recommend this series.

    Cat was determined to reunite her "family". After years of separation, the foster-siblings were summoned back to Wildstone for Cat's wedding. Once back together, they were flooded with a mix of emotions regarding their past, present, and future together as they worked to rebuild the relationships they previously shared. I know I say this in all my Shalvis reviews, but I have read over 30 of her books, and she never fails to make me laugh, smile, and swoon.

Found family takes center stage in this story, and I was rooting for them to renew those bonds that had weakened for various reasons. I admired Cat's desire to bring the "siblings of her heart" back into her life, but she really did have her work cut out for her. Three of the main characters were foster children, and each walled themselves off in the name of self preservation. It was wonderful and heartwarming seeing them break down those walls, brick by brick and allow those who earned it in. I liked that all four main characters - Maze, Walker, Cat, and Heather, had their own sub-plots, but it was the romance between Maze and Walker that stole my heart. They were dealing with a whole mess of emotions, which prevented them from fully embracing the things in life they really deserved. Maze was drowning in guilt, while Walker wrestled with a his abandonment issues. My heart broke in two for them, but watching them slowly work through their issues and open up was a thing of beauty. The Forever Girl was a beautiful and touching story of family, love, and second chances. As expected, Shalvis packed it with characters I adored, lots of humor, and an overwhelming amount of warmth, which left my heart bursting at the seams. *ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

    *I received a free review copy of The Forever Girl. This has in no way influenced my voluntary review which is honest and unbiased.* The Forever Girl is a feel-good-romance of epic proportions! There are characters that are bent but not broken, relationships that need to be mended, and a family that need to find their way back together.

The Forever Girl is the latest book in the series, they are all able to read on their own as they’re just set in the same town but follow entirely new characters. I started at like book 4 and then went back last year and read the rest because again, they’re that good y’all. This one follows four friends who are family; Maze, Walker and Heather were all foster kids who lived with Caitlin and her family and for them, it was the first time they ever had anything remotely resembling a family unit. Tragedy tore them all apart and things have never really been the same since, but now Caitlin is getting married and she wants everyone back home together. From the moment I first met Maze I liked her, I was invested in her immediately and soon became invested in the rest of the characters as well. They had a super interesting and engaging family dynamic, they’re messy as hell but totally genuine and relatable. This deals with some heavy issues, no one in this story has had an easy life, but by the time I finished I was full of hope and there was a perfect balance between emotional exploration and humor, think tearing up one page and snort laughing the next. Highly recommended by me for romance/women’s fiction lovers!

I didn't take many notes for this book but I noted many quotes that I like so here's a few: "She hadn't needed the shrink from Child Protective Services to tell her it was because she'd never really had a sense of belonging. That's what happened when you were raised like a wild tumbleweed in the wind, tossed in directions against your will." "Walker emitted a sexual pull that was hard to resist. When he entered her field of vision, she got a rush, and up close? He was deadly. The second she caught a hint of his scent or felt his body heat, she was as good as gone." "That long-ago summer spent out here on the lake had brought Walker a happiness he'd never experienced before. It'd taken him years and a trip back here this week to make him realize something: It wasn't the place that made him happy. It was the people in it." "Very few understood that beneath the edgy shell he wore like armor beat a heart that would lay itself down for the people it beat for."

    I am a softy when it comes to a second-chance romance, especially one that also crosses with a reconnection with old friend, who are more like family. Which is just what I got with The Forever Girl and I loved all the time I spent with Maze, Cat, Heather, and Walker. And while The Forever Girl is a wonderful, smart, sexy redo of Maze and Walker’s romance, it’s also so much more. It’s a celebration of friendship and accepting each other’s faults and forgiving each other for past hurts.

    The Forever Girl by Jill Shalvis is a standalone story in the Wildstone series, and a story of second chances. For one year a family took in 3 foster children, Heather, Maze and Walker, and raised them with their own two, Caitlin and Michael, until a fire destroyed their home and took their youngest. Michael’s death broke the family apart. Now years later, they are getting back together for Caitlin’s wedding and there is a lot of apprehension about this reunion from all parties.

Michael’s death broke the family apart. Now years later, they are getting back together for Caitlin’s wedding and there is a lot of apprehension about this reunion from all parties. Cat is on the fence on whether or not she really wants to get married. Getting Maze, Heather and Walker home to Wildstone one week early under false pretenses, is just one way to get her family back and get things out in the open once in for all. Heather brings her secret as her plus one and surprises everyone. Maze also brings a plus one and things aren’t what they seem. Maze is going to do her best to be there for Cat and do what she can to make amends for the way things are between them. What she has to figure out is how to deal with Walker and her feelings for him. I have been reading many stories by this author and her Wildstone stories is one of her best. In this series she has been able to write standalone women’s fiction with complex storylines and add her style of humor and romance, and really show her stuff with each story. The Forever Girl is a story in which she weaves multiple storylines and does a fine job evoking emotions, feelings and romance between these complex characters. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story because it was filled with witty banter, and was a slow build to develop each of her main characters and fully explain the different relationships. A very satisfying read. Review copy provided for a voluntary review.

    4.5 stars. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book early. This is my favorite in the Wildstone series- I enjoyed it so much!! This book is about Maze. She is returning to Wildstone for her estranged sister's wedding. She is one of 3 foster children that were apart of a family with 2 biological children. The biological children were Caitlin (the one getting married) and Michael who died at the age of 9. The foster children all came in at different ages but w 4.5 stars. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book early. This is my favorite in the Wildstone series- I enjoyed it so much!! This book is about Maze. She is returning to Wildstone for her estranged sister's wedding. She is one of 3 foster children that were apart of a family with 2 biological children. The biological children were Caitlin (the one getting married) and Michael who died at the age of 9. The foster children all came in at different ages but were separated when a terrible fire burned their house and killed Michael. Walker (one of the other foster children) and Maze both have a lot of guilt over the incident and we learn why throughout the book. Heather, the 3rd foster child, was a lot younger. They all come together every year (I think) on Michael's birthday and meet at his gravestone, but 3 years ago they had a big fight that severed connection between Maze and her siblings. As the book goes on we learn that Maze and Walker have a past that includes romantic chemistry and we watch them navigate that attraction in present day. We get to see everyone's issues and I loved each and every one. Caitlin was the oldest and only remaining biological child and I loved seeing her perspective on that. She also took responsibility for everyone and did things that she's supposed to do instead of following her heart. She's now about to get married and she's not sure if its for love or because she "should". Walker has been shot, but keeps living on the edge because he feels like he has to protect everyone. Heather has a lot of secrets she's been hiding that come to light when they all get back together. Maze has a "need nobody" attitude and we get to see her walls come down a little bit in this book. We also see her reunite with the foster parents even though she's been avoiding it for years. I LOVE second chance romance, especially when its childhood sweethearts, so this just made me so happy. I also love found family and books about sibling relationships so this checked so many boxes for me! I loved how these were all very real people with messy stories. I highly recommend this book! SPOILERS AHEAD: Caitlin ends up not getting married. Maze helps her ditch the wedding on her wedding day because its just a really bad fit. The guy isn't sure he wants kids, the MIL is the woman from hell, and the only part of the wedding Caitlin has enjoyed is having her family back together. I loved how Maze and Caitlin were so bonded again by the end! Walker feels guilty over Michael's death because he feels like he should've protected him more. He has protected Heather and Caitlin throughout life and Maze was the only one that he really didn't talk to because they had a miscommunication after they got married in Vegas when they were younger. They were both really insecure and felt rejected so all these years they've been married but haven't spoken. In the end they decide to stay married and have a "renewal of vows" ceremony. Heather has a kid that she didn't tell Maze about. Walker knew about her and helped her (even though it was secretly) and Caitlin hadn't met her daughter (Sadie) and Sadie is the one kid who didn't like Caitlin (until the end). Maze has a lot of insecurities because her mom had boyfriends that abused her and she never felt worthy of love. She also felt responsible for the death because she thought it had been her idea to go out and she sort of instigated the whole idea. However, that was not the case. I was so happy to see her and Walker get their HEA!

Caitlin is getting married and has invited all of them to spend time with her the week before her wedding. There is so much emotion in this story. Maze has serious trust issues, Heather is trying to hold her life together, Walker has a career that does not fulfill him and Caitlin is desperate for all of them to connect. Jill Shalvis never fails to make me cry. She also makes me laugh. This book was no exception. From a personal standpoint, my parents were foster parents and I spent my childhood with an array of children in our home. I completely understand the bond that develops between the children. I have "siblings" today that are as close and dear to me as my biological siblings. The story is well crafted and moves along at a great pace. This was definitely a one sitting read as I could not put it down. Each of the characters has secrets that are all laid out before the end of the book. I have skipped around a bit in the Wildstone series but this can certainly be read as a stand alone. I highly recommend this book. 4.5 stars Thank you to NetGalley and William Morrow Books for allowing me the opportunity to read this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I love this series and its seaside setting. In this sixth book we meet Maze, Heather, Walker and Caitlin as they gather graveside. Something they have done yearly since they separated after that fateful night. There is tension and guilt. But we gain a glimpse of their bond, personalities, and love for one another. Fast forward and the group is coming together for Caitlin’s wedding. Cat can’t stand that they have become estranged, but she has a plan to rekindle their bonds.

Heather brings a surprise plus one and Maze hearing Walker will bring a date, brings her boss and friend as her plus one. Walker arrives alone. I adored Walker, who looks, after all, even if he sometimes fumbles. You can feel the chemistry between Maze and Walker. It was interesting getting their backstory, even if I wanted to slap them both for not communicating! This was a heartfelt story of family, second chance romances and new beginnings. I laughed, occasionally pulled my hair out and shed some tears. While the romance focuses on Maze and Walker, we see secondary romances develop and more. Each thread was engaging and added to the overall story. This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Reviewer

    This one was a doozy, lots of drama in this family, drama that split them up when they needed each other the most and when most of them had no other support. It didn't help that they never really dealt with the drama of the past that was at the bottom of everything. I liked that Cat forced everyone to come to her wedding and how she fooled them all into spending more time. During that time everyone seemed to remember how much they loved each other, a great thing.

The girls had a much needed truth talk during a drinks and a truth or dare came where you could only pick truth. It helped the 3 of them get past their issues. Maze and Walker had their own issues, but once the root of them came out to the group it seemed to help. I really liked how this one ended, liked that everyone involved knew they were picked, glad that all the siblings were making an effort to stay together and hopefully they all are at a new beginning.

    A long time ago, Maze, Heather, and Walker were foster kids living with Cat’s family. They were very close, but when tragedy hit their home, they spread out far and wide. They’ve done an okay job keeping up with one another, except for Maze. She feels responsible for what happened and the guilt is heavy, so she has spent her years keeping everyone at a distance. Now, they are all reunited at Cat’s house to celebrate her wedding, and they really have no excuse not to explore what has happened in A long time ago, Maze, Heather, and Walker were foster kids living with Cat’s family. They were very close, but when tragedy hit their home, they spread out far and wide. They’ve done an okay job keeping up with one another, except for Maze. She feels responsible for what happened and the guilt is heavy, so she has spent her years keeping everyone at a distance. Now, they are all reunited at Cat’s house to celebrate her wedding, and they really have no excuse not to explore what has happened in their past and how they all feel about it. As the siblings were all arriving at Cat’s house for their stay, I wondered how this story would unfold. It was such an unusual time among siblings. I could really tell things were tense and that they didn’t know one another as much as I had assumed. It’s almost like they didn’t know what to say to the others, or how to break the ice. But I loved this, because my siblings and I have had awkward, tense moments in our past as we are not particularly close, and it probably looked a lot like this gathering initially did. Some of the siblings have done well in their his/her life, and some haven’t done as well. They all have been burdened with what happened when they were young, and this has impacted them in different ways. Maze seems to have a little more negativity and guilt in her feelings, but I’m sure this is an assumption of mine based on her POV being centered in this story. When Maze actually takes the time to reacquaint herself with her siblings, she realizes that she isn’t the only one with baggage and big things going on in her life. Jill Shalvis is one of the very best at writing character relationships. I particularly love her sibling relationships because they all feel so real. I think a lot of her readers can see themselves in at least some of her characters, and even though most of us probably do not have the same type of family represented in this story, I can still find myself in these characters. A couple of them try so hard to be hard and unaffected by things, but it only takes a little while before these strained relationships start to evolve into something better and stronger. Honestly, I think I really needed to read something like this at exactly this time. Walker is my favorite of all of the siblings. He’s cool, calm, and collected and he doesn’t try to hide his feelings. He is honest, and sometimes his honesty surprises his siblings. Mostly, it is super obvious how much he loves these women. He arguably had a harder time growing up than his sisters did, but each moment in his past has shaped him into who he is today, and I enjoyed the scenes involving him the most. The books in the Wildstone Series can be read in any order. The connecting factor is the setting. Even though I’ve read them in order, I would suggest to anyone interested that they can pick up any of the books and be just fine because there is very little (if any) character overlap in this particular series. Sidenote: There are two sweet puppies in this story: Roly and Poly. I LOVED them! Thank you to William Morrow for sending along a copy for review!
