Story Overview:
You know the universe is trying to tell you something when you get struck by lightning, but only after getting hit on by the elderly, almost getting ran over by a semi, and running into the one who got away. 
Why do they say it like that anyway? 
Like I accidentally lost her when she was the one that got in the car with my best friend and left me. 
The day after I proposed. 
We were eighteen. 
I wanted forever. 
She didn't. 
It's been ten years. 
I tried to move on, tried to get married, had that same wedding crashed by my now best friend who says the only way for me to stop pissing off the universe, is to gain closure with the one woman I can't forget. 
So I do it. 
I embark on a journey down memory lane that not only lands me in prison but on the receiving end of a fist fight in front of the entire town, this naturally happens after drunken pool sex, climbing the same girls window, and getting threatened at gunpoint by her father.
To say the universe is trying to tell me something anything, is a giant understatement. 
I just hope I survive the message. 
And then, I hope I survive her--again.

My Review:
I adored this book! I haven't read any of the other books in the series, but I didn't even miss them, so you can easily read this one by itself. This is the story of Maddy and Jason and their second chance at love.

Maddy and Jason were each other's everything in this small town and were engaged to be married, but they were so young...only 18, and Maddy could see the future and it wasn't all that she hoped. She didn't want to never spread her wings and try new things. She didn't want to be Jason's little housewife always fading into the background behind Jason. She didn't want to lose herself to this small town life. So she broke it off with Jason and ran, breaking his heart. 

But now she's back and Jason realizes that he never got over her. The thing is...Maddy never got over him either. 

And in the background of all this is the fact that Jason has done something to tick off the world and now appears to be cursed. It's almost comical at just how bad his luck is at the beginning of this book. He realizes he needs to fix things with Maddy... at least that he can move on and live a normal life. 

I really enjoyed the book. It was extremely entertaining and fun to read and fully engaging. I loved Maddy and Jason and the group of friends surrounding them. Second chance at love is one of my favorite tropes and this one was a great one. 

I definitely recommend it.
