Release Day Review: "You're Still the One" (Ribbon Ridge) by Darcy Burke


USA Today bestseller Darcy Burke concludes her Archer family saga with a second chance at first love…

Everyone thought college sweethearts Bex Holmgren and Hayden Archer were headed for the altar… until a tragic accident sent young Bex running from a future she wasn’t ready to claim. But when she’s offered her dream job at Archer Brewing, Bex can’t pass up the chance to reconnect with the big, crazy family that once welcomed her with open arms—and the one man she’s never stopped loving.

When he returns home after a year in France, Hayden is less than thrilled to find his ex-girlfriend working for his family’s company. He’s finally moved on, and being around her rekindles long-buried feelings he’d rather ignore. But Bex isn’t the same girl he knew—she’s more mature, more beautiful, more tempting than ever—and he can’t resist the pull of the intense passion he’s only ever shared with her.

Have five years changed them enough, or are they doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past? The only thing Bex knows for sure is that for her, Hayden is still the one.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
My Review:

Just when I thought the Ribbon Ridge series couldn't get more emotional, Darcy Burke gives us You're Still the One. I love how the author gives us a family that may look perfect from the outside but is full of flaws, and personality conflicts, and issues like every family. It makes the Archers real to the reader. It's fitting that the last of the Archer children to get his happily-ever-after is the one who felt most left out his entire life, and we experience that emotion with him in this book. My heart ached for him as he worked through his issues with his family and feeling like the "odd man out".

You're Still the One is a wonderful "second chance at love" story, with Bex and Hayden having a relationship that ended with Bex left town five years ago. The dynamic of Bex's relationship with Hayden's family brought an interesting twist to their romantic relationship and complicated their separate returns to town. But when it counted, Hayden's family rallied behind him and beside him.

The emotions were riveting, the humor laugh-out-loud funny, and the sex was steamy in this "last" book in the Archer saga. But not to fear-- the author teases the reader with some new personalities that you want to get to know better--so while we are leaving Ribbon Ridge right now, I'm confident it's only temporary.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
