I was given an ARC for an Honest Review.

I think we have all had something we don't want others to know about,that we hide.Enter Ruby.Ruby has long since been the adult her family.Taking care of her dad and somewhat just giving up on him.She doesnt let people know whats going on in her home life.Why would she want too?She is able to get away from it with her friends.She has closed herself off due to this.When Brent walks into her life he is pretty much smitten with her from the first time he saw her. Unfortunately like always Ruby will find out that Love isnt all rainbows and flowers...or is it?
I absolutely loved this book,I did want to ring Brent's neck for a short while there.I thought the Alcoholism issues were dealt with well on the Authors part.Not on Ruby's fathers part but Renee did amazing.This story was believable.There were some really really adorably romantic scenes in here and I am very much looking forward to Forgotten Yesterday.Renee is definitely an author to keep your eye on!She will knock your socks off with After Tuesday!
