From Here To You by Jamie McGuire

If you have been following my blog for a while then you know the love I have for Jamie McGuire. Beautiful Disaster is one of my favorite books. It's incredible. I was hooked on her writing from the second I opened that first book.

For my birthday I went to a bookstore (yes, that's what I asked to do for my birthday) and I found From Here To You on sale for $4! I know! Crazy. So of course I bought it.

Then the stay home orders started happening.

Because of this I've really been reading a lot and this was one of the first books I picked up.

You. Guys.

This book follows Darby who on her wedding day finds out she's pregnant. Mhm. Preggers. And her nearly betrothed is an abusive a-hole. To give her baby and herself a good life she runs to the bus station and catches a ride to the farthest place she can afford: Colorado Springs. Upon arrival at the Colorado Springs Hotel, she not only gets a room but also manages to score a job as a front desk clerk.

Trex takes a new job with the Cheyenne Mountain Complex which is a top-secret military installation. Single and gorgeous, Trex has always felt that "the one" is out there, and when he finds her he'll instantly know. Staying at the Colorado Springs Hotel he has no idea the one might be so close.

The second Trex lays eyes on Darby he's hooked. Now, I did read some reviews on this and some people complained of "insta love." This is a topic I've touched on a few times, but in case you haven't read those posts I'll fill you in. I have a love hate relationship with "insta love." Sometimes I'm happy because I don't want to wait the whole freaking book for the couple to get together. But I can't stand it when 10 pages in they're desperately in love. That drives me mad. I didn't feel like From Here To You was rushed. Now, there were times I thought dang Trex you just met this girl, but I mean, who am I to judge?

The other best part of this book is we get to see characters from Jamie's previous novels....and by that I mean we get to see some of the Maddox brothers! Yay!!

I loved Trex and Darby's relationship and I also really enjoyed the suspenseful aspect that was woven in. All in all I had a great time reading this - I stayed up until 4 am to finish - and I would definitely recommend.

"But as wildfires rage on the mountain and Darby's ex-fiance shows he isn't so willing to let her go, both she and Trex are soon to find out that what you don't know absolutely can hurt you."
