Career goals in mind and life long
dreams at stake, Alexa Kirkwood decided leaving the love of
her life was best after receiving an offer for the job of
her dreams. Darius Riverside was a broken man when Alexa
walked out the door without an explanation or backward
Nine years later with lots of living
behind them Alexa and Darius meet again at their best
friendís renewal ceremony. A love thought to be long
forgotten seems unwilling to stay silent. Not even hurt
feelings and long standing anger can stop Alexa and Darius
from rekindling their relationship. Soon the two are moving
full speed ahead back into each otherís arms throwing
caution to the wind.
Living in different parts of the
country with separate goals, it will take a lot for two long
lost lovers to find the balance necessary in their lives and
careers if they want to prevent losing out on a second
chance at love.
When you have two career minded
individuals trying to find a delicate balance sometimes life
doesnít quite work on the schedule we would like.
Finally, You and Me is a great example how sometimes
young professionals have to really access where their
priorities lie. Lisa Harrison Jacksonís heroine Alexa was
single minded in her focus of making it big in the
publishing industry. Time and time again she allowed her
self-absorption to interfere and cause pain and strife in
her relationship with Darius. A man who knew from the
beginning who he wanted by his side showed true forgiveness
when he allowed their past hurts to be set aside for a new
chance at love.
I will admit to finding it hard to like Alexa and what I
considered to be a totally self-absorbed attitude about her
life, her relationships and her inability to be completely
honest with the man she claimed to love. Iím curious how
other readers will view this relationship because even with
a happily ever after ending I couldnít help but end the
story with the thought Darius deserved better.
