My English review

I was intrigued by this synopsis and not knowing the author, I told myself that I had here a good opportunity to discover her writings.

The synopsis perfectly describes the story and we discover here Allie, a young woman whose heart was broken 7 years ago. She was the other woman, and the boy she loved did not finally choose her. Now in a relationship with her best friend for 6 years, life goes on. But here she meets with Landon again, Landon who always seems

DNF @ chapter 8.
I couldn't carry on, I didn't like Landon after a few chapters in. Who even says to an ex after years of being apart that their "lips need to touch right now" and not get laughed at or slapped silly? Come on!...' they were together for 9 months...

This was more than just a love triangle.
More than a second chance romance.
It’s about Allie finding herself. Letting go of what she knows isn’t right for her. It’s about love and heartache and pain and truth and happiness

This story is well-written. It felt so REAL.
Great job by the author for making me feel with my heart...and making me understand... and making me smile.

I don't know how to express my feels about this. Sad at the start, pissed in the middle, and the twist between friends I was kind of pissed. I cant say I was happy with what the story became. I guess sometimes in life its reality and plays out as it was meant to be. Heartbreak took over me. Worth reading? Yes.

Allie Vincent thought she was on track to having it all, a special man to share her life with, a career that she loves, and a promising future to look forward to... but then everything in her world comes to a screeching halt when a very special someone unexpectedly wanders back into her life, and beings to make some serious waves! Seeing Landon again was something she didn't anticipate, when he closed the door on them seven years ago she thought that was it, that she'd never see him again. Lando ...more

When a book starts with a heartbreaking scene where the heroine’s life falls apart, you just can’t help but keep on turning the pages. This standalone second chance romance with a love triangle twist is quite an emotional read.

Allie is a successful career woman and is in a stable relationship with her boyfriend of six years. Her calm existence is rocked when she bumps into her ex-boyfriend Landon. He’s the one who broke her heart many years ago

Timing is everything. Those are the words that come to mind after reading Why Not Me?
We begin with Allie and Landon. They have been together for nine months, and Landon breaks things off with her. He was supposed to break up with his girl friend. How did this happen? What made this happen? Why her and not me? These questions haunt Allie every time she thinks about the past. But seven years later, she is in a relationship with Brendan. Though Allie has been questioning the relationship recently.

Why Not Me by Ashley Erin is a story of second chances at love and life. In her story, Erin tells us of a girl who fell in love with a boy. It was a combustive love full of hardships. Timing was never right. But when a car accident results in bringing them back together, Landon and Allie must decide if they can get it right a second time around.

Erin fills this romance full of angst and although it took me a bit to really get into these characters, once I did I was not stopping until the last pag

He wants her back, but she has moved on right? The old connection is there but is she willing to risk all the great in her life for a second try? He wants a second chance, but will it be worth it for her or will she

What a book! I really loved reading it. It was super addictive and the characters were great.
Allie was once in love with Landon before he broke her heart.
Landon always regretted having to lose out with Allie. But the timing wasn’t right. I will leave that for you to read about.
There is a lot of intense parts to this book. But it is also hot and addictive. I really loved the characters and the story that goes with them. It’s got a great pace to it. Making it hard to put down. I really hope the

Why Not Me? is a story of love, of friendship, of passion. The story centers on allie. One man has been there for her when it mattered and he is safe. The other sets her heart afire but also shattered it. Ashley Erin does a great job taking us through Allie's journey and how she lives with the consequences of her ultimate decision.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Ashley Erin creates the perfect balance between a love triangle and second chance. With a different approach, I was captivated by the story and intrigued to see how Allie’s story played out. Erin weaved a story that had me cheering for our heroine and breaking for her. I could feel her pain, guilt, confusion. Honest and real, this is much more than a love triangle. It is a book about life, struggles, and friendship. With a twist I wasn’t expecting, the story took on a depth that added to the rea ...more

I truly connected with this story. I have been in Allie shoes.. having a connection with someone that is so strong it rocks your world. this book really made me truly think about my life. it has left a lasting imprint on my soul.

Things in life can get turned upside down when we least expect them. Allie had choices to make and she took us on that ride. This story has you wondering what will happen at each turn.
So well written that you are always engaged in the story. From start to finish I truly enjoyed each page and was sad when it was finished.
I recommend this book to read now or later and you won’t be disappointed.

This was written with realistic characters. Both Landon and Allie's love reminded me of my first love; No matter where life takes you, you never can get rid of the feelings you felt for your first love. Their connection drew me in. I rooted for both characters although Allie was with someone else and I admire her strength to do things slowly and right. That takes courage and hard work.
I enjoyed this read so much I finished it rather quickly. It's been awhile since I've been able to do that.

WHY NOT ME is a story that I didn't think I would like because of the love triangle aspect of it. This was written in a unique way that the situation with the characters makes sense.

This is one of stories that packs a lot of emotion between two covers.

The characters are well developed. The story has a natural flow and I would absolutely read this author again.

“It’s been an interesting journey as we navigate our relationship in a way we never had a chance to before.”

Well this was quite the introduction to a new author. I had a suspect as to what I was getting into with the synopsis but what I got was a completely different story all together. I had no idea what was going to come from this and I ended up loving it by the end of the book. There were a few moments where I was angry with the way things were turning, but this is REAL life.

The story Why Not Me? By Ashley Erin is a wonderful romance story that I loved reading. It is a book about a woman who begins to analyze her life after someone from her past comes back into her life. Allie Vincent is a woman that some would say has it all. A job she loves, a boyfriend that adores her, and wonderful best friends. While she has memories of the one that left her years ago they become more intense when they run into each other. Allie can’t s

Why Not Me? By Ashley Erin was a great 5 Star read for me. I was hooked from chapter 1. The book was completely relatable to so many people. I loved all characters and they all played an Important role in the book.

Allie and Landon had such a connection to eachother that they couldn't fight it. Landon was 19 and she was 20. However, Landon was dating someone already when they hooked up. That hookup lasted 9 months. 9 long months of sneaking around worried Melissa would find out. When Landon says

Why Not Me? by Ashley Erin
Why Not Me? by Ashley Erin is a wonderful second chance romance. Even more than that, it has a love triangle going on to.
Allie Vincent is happy with her life. She has a great job and a fantastic boyfriend who she’s been with for six years. There’s just one thing holding her back. Seven years ago Allie was ‘the other woman’ in her relationship with Landon. She was gutted when he chose to stay with his girlfriend, instead of leaving her to be with Allie.

Why Not Me? by Ashley Erin is a romance story that I enjoyed. It has some steamy parts, but for the most part isnt overly graphic scenes, but more feelings of love, loss and seconds chances. The book begins with Allie as she is in love, and happy in her relationship, until it abruptly ends one night without warning. She is crushed and it takes her a long time to accept, get over it and move on. She spends the better part of the next 10 years wondering why, and despite being in a long term relati ...more
