I’d never met anyone quite like Mathias Wade.
He was brooding and arrogant, but I loved him anyway.
Together we were wild and uncontained—a hurricane raging.
Then I had to leave, and words were exchanged that could never be undone.
But now I was back, and Mathias better watch out, because this bitch wasn’t finished with him.
Game. Set. Match.
All is fair in love and war, right?
Mathias Wade, the lead singer of Willow Creek, is used to getting everything he wants. Except for Remy Parker—the one that got away. Childhood friends that grew into more, Remy was the one constant in his life until she moved away. In anger, he lashed out and broke the only girl he ever loved. With temptation around every corner Mathias drowns his sorrow in women and alcohol. When the band returns to their hometown for the holidays the last thing Mathias expects is to run into Remy—but she’s back, and she’s not done with him.
Remy never forgot Mathias or the pain he caused her. When she moves back to the place she grew up to take care of her ailing grandma her heart is set on revenge. She’s determined to make Mathias fall in love with her all over again—only this time she’s going to break his heart.
But Mathias never stopped loving Remy—and she soon discovers that her feelings haven’t disappeared either.
Can two people too stubborn for their own good overcome their own demons and find the love they always deserved?
This book, holy guacamole was it an emotional ride! I absolutely loved it! After reading Last to Know I was so excited to get to know Mathias a little bit better and I am so glad we got that chance! Mathias Wade is one the best bad boys I’ve read in a long time. You can’t help but love him. He’s rude, brooding, a pain in your behind and has the attitude to match, but deep down he’s the sweetest guy you could ever meet. My heart literally was in a puddle of tears seeing him worry so much over his sweet little pitbull puppy, Shiloh. Leave it to Micalea Smeltzer to really make you fall in love with the character’s pets. Remy was a great character as well. I admit I didn’t like her too much in the beginning because I hated that she just wanted to hurt Mathias so badly, but I really learned to like her when she let her guard down and saw why she was so bitter. She was just as sassy and strong as Mathias and these two are made for each other. I am so wrapped up in these characters and their stories that I am sad that I have to wait for the next one to come out! The Willow Creek series is written beautifully and so vibrant with lovable characters that you too will get wrapped up in their world. I really do love it and I am so thankful to be involved in bookstagram or else I wouldn’t have heard known about these books.
Never Too Late is a great story. It has pretty much everything you want in a contemporary NA novel. It will have you laughing, crying, and crying from laughing! Seriously, I don’t know how many times I was laughing out loud because Remy’s grandma was such a hoot. But be warned, there are a lot of “sexy times” in this novel (sometimes a little too much).
I loved the way these two messed up kids grew into such strong individuals and were able to find each other again to finally have their happy ending! Such a touching feeling. And! I absolutely LOVED seeing Maddox and Emma again! Oh my goody goody gumdrops! I loved loved Maddox and Emma in this novel and seriously started crying at the end (‘:
I am so glad I was given an ARC from the author because I had to dive in straightaway! She has truly captivated my heart with her characters and I can’t wait for more!
