This was good but unfortunately, I was looking for more. I wanted more grovel, more dialogue between the two MCs. But it didn't happen, especially the grovel part especially since Westin betrayed her not once but thrice. Yes, you read that correctly. Three times:back when they were in high school, the first time they sort of reconciled and then when Scarlett finally had let him in only to find out that everything was a big sham.

I guess I shouldn't blame Westin since Scarlett didn't give him a ch

Scarlett Ryan goes “home” to be a bridesmaid for her best friend and plans to only go to the wedding and get the hell out of town. She doesn’t want to run into her parents, whom she ran away from in the first place. Little does she know, she runs into the one man that broke her back in high school. He up and left one day without a word, Scarlett never knew why.

I really enjoyed this book. Claimed by You was about a girl who needed to make a life for herself. She didn't want her parents to decide her future. Scarlett had been burned before. So her decision to move away from her parents, and the guy that broke her heart, came easy.
All settled in with her Aunt, who was more like a sister, Scarlet finally had a life to call her own. She became a co-owner of a bakery that her and her aunt had opened. She had it all.... Until one quick trip back home for a
The Cover was nice

It started out a little interesting but slowly it became what I call "a cliche" in the romance story. But I did not like the male role in this story. Westin leaves Scarlett with no word or explanation when they was teens. It starts with her seeing him again at a wedding 10 years later, and he wants to see here again. Scar runs from her family to make a life for her self and she doesn't want anything to do with them or Westin. Westin shows up and he feels untrustworthy and secre

I adored this book, I loved everything about it how Scarlett left home to get away from her controlling parents especially her father who has played such a huge role in the hurt she has been caused. thankfully she's has her aunt and best friend to get her through it. Westin her teen sweetheart she has loved since she was 16 has turned up and turned her life upside down, this story has love heartbreak and friendship I loved how it was written and I loved the shock I got when she overhears a

Scarlett Ryan is someone who is determined to leave her past just where it is...When she attends her best friends wedding back in California she runs into the one person that has taken her years to forget about. Westin took everything from Scarlett ten years after the chance meeting at the wedding, does Scarlett have it in her to forgive and forget? This book will take you on an amazing love story that will have you in a book hangover! Well worth it..

This book was so realistic that I felt I knew this couple personally. Love is never perfect and I would like to applaud Ms. Toppen on this incredible book. The fact that she even took the chance to write a book like this really impresses me. I cannot wait to see what else she has written and buy those too!

Don't like leaving bad reviews......

But the cost of this book warrants it. Sorry to the author I know you put a lot of work into it but it did not warrant the cost for the book. hardly any real dialogue, no serious discussions of their situation just other pointless scenes to fill the pages.

I l.o.v.e.d....this book!! it was easy to fall right into the story and stay stuck there! I loved Scarlett ! There was many Shocking moments where I thought something else was going to happen. This book had a great story line and flow and was written amazingly I would definitely recommend everyone to read it! Melissa WRITES LIKE A BEAST! Can't wait to read more of her books!
I won this in a Facebook party.

This book had a good story and great characters but it seems like it was the same thing over and over in the whole book. It finally got good at the end, then the epilogue was really good and then it was over! The epilogue should of been half way through the book and went from there, it would have been better.

Loved it!What an amazing love story. Yes it took 10yrs for them to get back together thanks to your controlling dad. I loved Scarlett and Westin love story. Loved how Melissa took this couple and split them apart and all of a sudden bring them back together. Thanks Melissa. I couldn't put it down
