Ever since she was a little girl, thirty-year-old Rose dreamed of the day Harley would carry her across the threshold on their honeymoon. So what if this isn’t her actual wedding day, and that she’s only here because Harley was left at the altar just a few hours earlier?
Trading San Francisco for paradise and swapping her bridesmaid’s bouquet for a Blue Hawaii, Rose hopes she can finally escape the friend zone.
Once upon a time they had been more than friends, but life got in the way. She’s spent every day since wishing Harley would get a clue.
She’s always been his best friend.
He’s always been hers.
She’s in love with him.
He’s … marrying someone else.
He’s … hiding something
He’s … well—it’s complicated.
I finished this book earlier today and I have not stopped crying since. Which has made it a bitch of a time to not only write this review but others as well because my heart is still crying out and tears are clouding my vision. Let me put it to you all this way, I haven’t cried this hard and this much over a book since Taking Chances, and I cry when I read but nothing like how that book and now this one have caused me to do. Seriously have a ton of tissues close by, have someone who can just hold you and allow you to grieve, but most importantly allow yourself to feel the emotions that Harley & Rose will bring out of you.
I can’t go into a ton of details because I won’t spoil it but this is one of the most emotionally heart breaking books I have read in a while. Harley & Rose, Pan to his Wendy will at times have you happy, pissed off, and for me at least balling your eyes out uncontrollably. Hell even know I am crying again which means it is going to take me forever to get this review finished but those tears, the puffy eyes and red face (let’s face it I am an UGLY crier) are all worth it. I know some people may not agree with that but in reality I think Harley & Rose opens our eyes that sometimes even though the outcome isn’t always what we want it is closer to reality than we want to admit. Even that ending was fitting, and beautiful in a heart breaking way.
Carmen Jenner you have destroyed this book whore’s heart, I will be feeling this book hangover for days to come if the amount of tears I have already shed today are any indication of how this book will stay with me. This is a book that will always have a part of my soul.

He pulls me in again and presses a soft kiss to my lips. For a beat I’m stunned, and then I begin to understand. It isn’t a romantic kiss—it’s a goodbye.
It rings in a new dawn, one where Harley isn’t the center of my Earth and I’m not the center of his, and just like that, I’m lost. I’m no longer tethered to this man. I’m no longer his future—I’m his past, and he’s mine. But that’s all we are. Ex-lovers. Friends? Maybe one day, but for now are just two people who’ve clung to one another for so long we forgot we weren’t the only two to exist. We forgot we weren’t a whole, but two separate pieces.
It will kill me, but I have to let go of Harley Hamilton, because he’s already let go of me. And there is nothing sadder than a woman clinging to a ghost.
