Blog Tour: If Only by AJ Pine

I Do Tour Banner

Buy: Amazon • Print • Amazon UK • Amazon CA • B&N • Kobo • iBooks

Synopsis: A new adult romance from Entangled’s Embrace imprint…

Sometimes you have to trust your heart to find out what home really means.

Duncan McAllister is marrying Elaina Tripoli tomorrow. Except–he’s missing. Jordan, Noah, Griffin, Maggie, and Miles arrive in Greece for the festivities to find frantic messages from both the bride and groom. Noah and Griffin set off to find Duncan while Jordan, Maggie, and Miles try to salvage what should be a day of celebration before the wedding.

But the Americans have their own baggage. Noah’s got a surprise planned for Jordan that has to go perfectly. Griffin’s keeping life-changing news from Maggie. And Miles–well, he wasn’t looking for love on this trip until a Greek sous chef named Alex rocks his world.

The race is on for Duncan to make it back to Elaina before she decides not to take him back at all. For Noah to make sure his monumental plan goes off without a hitch. For Griffin to tell Maggie the truth without losing her. For Miles to admit that letting himself fall in love is worth the risk.

Happily Ever After waits at the finish line…if the four couples can make it on time.

My review:

This is a brilliant culmination of multiple romances told from multiple points of view, a fitting ending to a superb series.

If you’ve read any other books in this series, you’ll recognise many of the characters in this story which brings them together for the planned wedding of Duncan McAllister and Elaina Tripoli in Greece but nothing is going right for any of them! The groom has disappeared and the other couples all have plans, expectations and things to work through! If it could go wrong, for these couples it is likely to do so!

It is a fun read, with great characters moving on with their lives from the previous stories but also highly entertaining. The author makes brilliant, skilled use of the different points of view to relate events and making it easy to empathise with them all. There’s plenty of drama and turmoil throughout the story, keeping the reader enthralled right to the very end. The epilogue is endearing and left me smiling.

If you like romances, this has four couples! It is a lovely ending to the series and also works well as a standalone. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it!

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.

Other Books in the If Only series…

If Only #1 Cover

Buy: Amazon • Print • Amazon UK • Amazon CA • B&N • Kobo • iBooks

Synopsis: Sometimes it takes crossing an ocean to figure out where you belong.

It’s been two years since twenty-year-old Jordan had a boyfriend—which means it’s been forever since she, well, you know. But now she’s off to spend her junior year in Aberdeen, Scotland, the perfect place to stop waiting for Mr. Right and just enjoy Mr. Right Now.

Sexy, sweet (and possible player) Griffin may be her perfect, no-strings-attached match. He’s fun, gorgeous, and makes her laugh. So why can’t she stop thinking about Noah who, minutes after being trapped together outside the train’s loo, kisses Jordan like she’s never been kissed before? Never mind his impossible blue eyes, his weathered, annotated copy of The Great Gatsby (total English-major porn)…oh, and his girlfriend.

Jordan knows everything this year has an expiration date. Aberdeen is supposed to be about fun rather than waiting for life to happen. But E. M. Forster, Shakespeare, and mistletoe on Valentine’s Day make her reconsider what love is and how far she’s willing to go for the right guy.

What If #2 Cover

Buy: Amazon • Print  • Amazon UK • Amazon CA • B&N • Kobo • iBooks

Synopsis: Sometimes it takes letting go of the past to find out who you want to be.

During his semester abroad, Griffin Reed almost gave his heart to a girl who loved someone else. Lesson learned. Now he’s home, where following in his father’s footsteps may not be what he wants, but it’s what his parents expect. It might be taking the easy road, but he doesn’t see a way out.

Something that could have killed Maggie Kendall took away the person she used to be instead. Her condition makes her dependent on sticky notes, photos, and medication just to get through each day. The last thing she needs is a distraction—or someone new to disappoint.

What they refuse to see is they are perfect for each other. Maggie makes Griffin want to be a better man, and he makes her believe a future is possible. But these two have to find a way to share the secrets ripping them apart, if they’re ever going to have a chance at happiness.
