and her complicated constant.
Despite her best efforts, she finds herself falling for him, but what will happen if Tyler learns the truth about her past and realizes just how deep the damage is?
The risk might be too much...

Laura's Review: 

I've been reading a lot of YA and New Adult books lately that deal with "damaged" heroes or heroines that I was a little wary of reading this one. But, it had a decidedly more "grown up" feel to it, which gave a bit of new light to a slightly overdone theme.
I loved that Ms. Michaels didn't feel the need to occupy huge chunks of the book with flashbacks and that it basically started with Brooke and Tyler already in the thick of their established friendship, but I do think it took a little away with the connection and understanding I had of the characters. While Brooke is understandably "broken" over her past, it seemed odd that so many years later she wasn't even working a part time job. This may be me being judge-y, but I respected her less for that.
Tyler, on the other hand, was amazingly great - exactly what anyone would want in a boyfriend IRL, but a little dull for a romance novel hero. There were a couple of moments that made me think we were going to see another layer to him besides the sweet, thoughtful, caring guy he is on the surface, but they were unfortunately fleeting. Still, he and Brooke deserved the happy ending they got, and it was a really great way to end a nice romance.

What Happens Tomorrow: 3.5/5 stars

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
