First and foremost, I appreciate the series’ uniqueness. I’ve never read a series that was centered on weddings. Seeing those beloved characters from the Southern series and knowing that this new series would be just as exceptional in its own right.
Madison has a way of making you feel at home with her novels from the first few words. The love she instills in the family dynamics makes you feel like you’re a part of them. The heartfelt moments between family members, loving exchanges, and parental advice; every word feels as if it’s being said to you. It’s this genuine feeling that distinguishes Madison’s dialogue from others.
Harlow was happy with her life until she received an invitation to her ex’s wedding. She was attending the wedding of the man who had broken her heart, fulfilling a promise made a lifetime ago. Harlow was charming and quick with a sassy retort. Her life had been turned upside down by a man, and she came knowing it would hurt just to keep a promise.
Travis made a decision to walk away, not only breaking Harlow’s heart, but his as well. He too had a life he was content with. It was a day of signs, everything that could go wrong did. Travis was swoony, all that southern charm and a smirk. He walked away all those years ago, and while he was an idiot, the motive behind it was heartwarming (and kind of made me want to punch him).
Travis and Harlow had been apart for four years, but it had had no effect on their chemistry. I realized the phrase “the eyes are the window to the soul” the moment they made eye contact. The heartbreak of the past had begun to heal in a way that would not have occurred otherwise.
Madison has woven a beautifully heartwarming story with moments that brought tears to my eyes, as she always does with her novels. Not from pain or heartbreak, but from genuine moments of love that permeate the pages, which brought tears to my eyes.
A few words into Mine to Have, and the words wrap around you like a warm hug, and a sense of peace washes over you, all thanks to Madison’s incredible writing. A heartwarming second chance, a swoony hero, a clever heroine, a heartwarming second chance, and steam. The words envelop you like a warm hug. Genuine love permeates the pages, which brought tears to my eyes.
I promised him I would be there for the best day of his life.
Not thinking I wouldn’t be the one standing next to him.
But here I was attending the love of my life’s wedding day.
I smiled when I saw him and pushed back the tears that wanted to come out.
This was his day and I was going to fulfill my promise.
It was supposed to be the best day of my life.
But the second I got up, things started to fall apart.
The kitchen just caught on fire.
Flowers were from a funeral.
My bride-to-be just had an allergic reaction leaving by ambulance.
Oh and my ex-girlfriend just walked into the church.
They say you have to see the signs when they are right in front of you.
Maybe she was just mine to have.
