RELEASE BLITZ - I Do(n't) by Leddy Harper

Title: I Do(n't)
Author: Leddy Harper
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 11, 2017


I fell in love with Holden York when I was six years old.

Most of my youth came with spiral notebooks filled with doodles, wedding plans, and “Janelle York” looped in bubbly handwriting.

However, one night in Vegas changed everything.

I woke up to more than just a fantasy of my brother’s best friend.

Five years later, I'm standing on his doorstep confronting him about the secret he kept from me.

If you think this is the story of how we rode off into the sunset together…
You’re so wrong.

But if you think this is the story of how Holden blackmailed me into living with him...
You couldn't be more right.

*********MY REVIEW********

I enjoyed this my best friend’s sister/ my brother’s best friend story because of the emotional journey the characters took . It wasn’t the usual story that you normally would have read. There is so much more going on that what you see on the surface- you have to read , no spoilers here.
What I will say is Janelle's love is something she struggled with and when she felt like he betrayed her, she acted out , almost like a spoiled brat which I had some issues with BUT in saying that, I totally got why she acted that way. Holden's love for Janelle was always there but he never let on, especially to Janelle. I think maybe if he did, A LOT of the trouble, angst and issues could have been avoided. Will he finally clue her in to how he feels or will he let her go this time ---for good ? Before admitting to how he truly feels for her and will Janelle not let Holden know how much she truly feels for him and has felt?
This story has so much going on, with two main characters that will definitely try your patience but I can tell you its so worth the time to read this story and invest in these characters. I loved their passion, their intensity, their past which leads to the present. I was hanging on the end of my seat waiting to know if they would get the HEA they really deserved. I do wish that it didn’t take until the end until we finally got an answer and we could have gotten more of an epilogue… otherwise, great writing as always by Leddy Harper.

My Rating:  4.5 stars *****
