Author: Katherine Hastings
Genre: Romantic Comedy (standalone)
Release Date: May 22, 2019
When Ellie awoke with an epic hangover the day after she caught her boyfriend cheating, it wasn’t the pounding in her head causing her to scream… it was the discovery of the late-night incoherent message she sent to the boy she loved twelve years ago. The one she hadn’t seen since their week-long whirlwind summer romance when they were only eighteen. The one she gave her heart to and forgot to take it back. You know… the big one.
After they reconnect online and the years hadn’t diminished their chemistry one bit, a few martinis and her meddling wingmen convince her to hop on a plane and surprise him… in Italy. After sobering up somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, she regrets her decision to drop in on him unannounced, but when she arrives and she sees the boy she loved standing before her as a gorgeous man, she puts aside her fears to see if he’s still the one. She ends up on the journey of a lifetime finding out if it’s possible she met her soulmate at the ripe old age of eighteen, or if she needs to swear off the trouble-inducing booze for good.
Katherine Hastings loves love. It’s why she writes romance novels. Getting lost writing a romantic adventure is one of her favorite pastimes. When she’s not on an adventure with her characters, she can be found at her home in Wisconsin snuggling her husband, two Boston Terriers, and the world’s naughtiest cat. Two things make Katherine want to leave her happy home these days... going for rides on her dressage pony or floating at the beach in her big inflatable raft. Writing her novels while floating in the lake is one of her ultimate pleasures... that and Fried Wisconsin Cheese Curds, of course.
