Many of us are very familiar with, and quite fond of this series, specifically because of how it made us feel. How intensely it had us connecting with our emotions. How distraught we became, how connected we were to the characters and how much we were rooting for… a certain outcome. These may not necessarily be heartwarming, soul-moving, or transcending, but they are a PURE GUILTY PLEASURE!!! On the other end of the emotional spectrum. These books will have you swooning, and screaming at your e-reader. You might want to chain it to your wrist, friends. When it comes to the books in this series, I’ve heard every exhausted, yet elated exultation imaginable:
Molly: “… my emotions were everywhere.”
Nicky: “AR and AC are my number 1 most angsty reads ever!”
Gudy: “… its sad, happy, tragic, hearbreaking, agonizngly amazing!!! loved it!!!”
Tania: “Grrrrrr! The angst.”
Krista: “… UGH I am not sure if I love or HATE these books or BOTH ”
Jennifer: “Get ready to wanna slam your kindles against the WALL!!!!” <—sidenote from Maryse: *snort* I hear that one a lot!
Oh you know you’re curious! And lucky you, both books are now finally available, ready and waiting to be read. Some readers had to suffer after book #1′s sort of… cliffhanger, with no relief! Can you imagine the agony? Oh yes. There was agony. Little warning: This series may not be for everybody. It is pure angst, and drama, and over-the-top situations that will have you reeling. I was running on pure adrenaline by the end of ‘em. But if you’re into that sort of thing, and willing to possibly have your heart ripped out in the process, then this is for you!
About book #1:
Jack and Lexi never had a typical relationship. After 2 years without speaking, she receives a phone call that changes everything. He unexpectedly asks her to convince the new girl, Bekah, that he’s ready to commit. Jack is calling now after everything they had been through because there is another woman. She can’t believe it. Follow Lexi in this heart wrenching drama as she relives her past relationship, or lack thereof, with Jack, and not just in her own mind, but to his fiance-to-be. Throw in Bekah’s hot brother who always seems to be in the right place at the right time, a past with more secrets to unravel than you can even imagine, and you get a recipe for disaster. Find out what happens to Lexi as she travels to Atlanta to get the closure she so desperately desires from Jack, and how the bumps of life seem to keep getting in the way.

“You checkin’ me out?” he drawled as if he hadn’t come out of the bathroom like that on purpose.
“Yep. Wondering how late I can be without getting yelled at,” she said.
He chuckled, wrapping the towel around his waist to cover up some of the distraction. “I don’t want you to get yelled at.”
“It might be worth it,” she murmured.
