Ellie Carmichael had a crush on Adam Sutherland, her brother, Braden’s, best friend, for years, and although Adam treated her with proprietary concern he made it clear he thought of her only as a little sister.
Over the years, as Ellie’s crush develops into love, her romantic idealism makes it difficult for her to move on. To make matters worse, as she’s gotten older, Adam’s attitude has changed toward her. His affection for her is now joined by attraction, but his loyalty to Braden, and his fear of losing the only family he has, stops him from claiming Ellie the way she wishes he would.
But one night his attraction is put to the test, and as much as Adam would like things to remain the same everything changes between them in a simple brush of the lips.
Soon lust, love, jealousy and heartbreak combine to force change upon their relationship… and Adam discovers the hard way that life is too damn short to spend it on regret.
I think this one is by far my favorite out of all the books and novellas so far. This novella takes the reader on a journey. You’ll get to experience Ellie’s take on her and Adams relationship from the time she first met him at a young 14 years old.
I love the way this novella is written. It captured my attention on page one and held it until the very end. It’s a given that since it’s a novella it’s a quick read, but I was just so drawn in I couldn’t stop reading. I loved everything about this story. The characters, the setting, the “first love” aspect of the story. It’s truly an incredible read.
Overall, I think Until Fountain Bridge is a great addition to this wonderful series. It’s one of my favorites! I can’t wait to start the next book. If you haven’t read this series yet you need too!
