Review: From Here To You by Jamie McGuire

Posted on

As Darby Dixon sits in a tiny Texas church bathroom on her wedding day holding a positive pregnancy test, she realizes that of all the bad decisions she’s made in her life, marrying her abusive fiancé would be the worst. She’s never been able to stand up for herself, but she’ll sure as hell stand up for her baby. With just the cash she has on hand, she runs to get a bus ticket to the farthest place she can afford. Between her sheer grit and pageant-queen smile, she lands a job as a front desk clerk at the Colorado Springs Hotel. It’s not a glamorous life, but she and her baby are all that matters.

A former Marine, Scott “Trex” Trexler has worked in the most dangerous, corrupt, war-torn places on earth. Now he finally has a chance to return to the last place he’d felt at peace–Colorado Springs, Colorado, to take a new job with the Cheyenne Mountain Complex, a top-secret military installation buried deep within the granite.

The moment Trex walks into the inn, Darby knows he’s dangerous. There’s no way she wants to get involved with another man who seems to be keeping way too many secrets. As charming and devastatingly gorgeous as Trex is, he clearly isn’t telling her everything. But as wildfires rage on the mountain and Darby’s ex-fiancé shows he isn’t so willing to let her go, both she and Trex are soon to find out that what you don’t know absolutely can hurt you.

My Review

From Here to You is an exciting and intriguing new read from author Jamie McGuire. From Here to You follows the story of Darby and Trex. When we first meet Darby, I couldn’t help but be intrigued by her story. We meet her just minutes before her wedding is about to start and she gets some life altering news. This news gives her the strength to get out of a terrible situation and try to create a new life for her and her unborn child. With only the clothes on her back and the cash she has on hand, Darby goes as far as her money will take her. Her new life may not be what she dreamed of, but if anyone deserves a second chance, it’s Darby….

From Here to You pulled me in instantly. I was so intrigued and couldn’t wait to read more. I found Darby really easy to relate to and loved how smart she was. She risked a lot by leaving her fiancee and trying to start over. She is the kind of woman you just want to hug and protect. She may not have been ready for Trex to come into her life, but I gotta tell you, he was just what the doctor ordered. Not only was he good looking, but he was patient, kind and determined. He believed in true love and soul-mates. He didn’t care about Darby’s past and the moment he realized that she was everything he was looking for, he would stop at nothing to protect and win her heart.

Darby and Trex’s road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one. There were definitely some bumps along the way. From secrets to lies and omissions of truth. From a past that just won’t stay buried. This story had turns that left me breathless and on the edge of my seat. Even with all that, this author delivered a heartfelt slow-burning second chance romance that just kept me begging for more.

Overall, I found this story to be a truly enjoyable read. I loved the chemistry between the characters and the friendships built along the way. I loved seeing and spending time with familiar faces. I loved the drama and suspense. I loved the romance and swoon-worthy moments along the way. From Here to You was a terrific read from beginning to end.
