Blurb (from Goodreads):
At sixteen, Dee Johnson gambled her heart on her best friend Jed Brown – and lost when he disappeared without a trace.
Ten years on, Dee’s life is uprooted when Jed turns up on her doorstep, asking for her help.
Dee has been left behind by everyone she’s loved: her parents, her close friend Alexia, and a stream of lovers. She moves fast with men and suspects this is why they move on fast. Now that’s Jed’s back in her life, she’s taking no chances. Despite the attraction ripping at her seams, she holds back, knowing she wouldn't recover from being loved and left by him a second time.
A constant traveler, Jed has only felt at home once in his life – with Dee. Now that he’s found her again, he's determined to make up for lost time. He'll never leave her again.
Until an unexpectedly royal revelation threatens to strip Jed of his freedom and future – including his place by Dee’s side.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“Some people don’t think boys can be just friends with girls.”
(I love 'When Harry met Sally'!)
This was an okay adult contemporary romance, but I lost interest really.
I didn’t really love either of the characters in this book. I felt sorry for the way they were separated at the start of the book, but I just couldn’t relate to them, and I found that I didn’t really care what happened to them.
The storyline in this felt quite predictable, and the title and prologue totally gave away the only real twist in the story. I likewise found the romance to be quite predictable too, and I wasn’t expecting there to be quite such detailed sex scenes, I kind-of expected there to be maybe closed-door sex, but that wasn’t the case.
The ending was a ‘happily ever after’ as expected, and I found (highlight to view spoiler - the wedding) really unnecessary and sudden.[ the wedding (hide spoiler)]
