Aubrey is embarking on a bucket list trip around the world, the last wish of her Aunt Ally. It was supposed to be the trip Ally would take when she got better.
 Now it's just a chance for Aubrey to say goodbye.
Adam escapes in his solo trips overseas, working just enough to fund the next one. When the opportunity to circle the globe falls in his lap he can't refuse.
The only catch, he won't be traveling alone this time.
Unable to hide from each other Adam's overprotective nature thwarts Aubrey's desire to find her own way. Can they move past initial assumptions to find something better?
My Review
I love Carey Heywood! I have read Him, Her, and now Better. Carey Heywood this book is simply amazing and I adore this story. I was so happy that I received an ARC for this book. All I can say is WOW! This book touched my soul in the best way possible. The writing, the story, and the characters are perfect. I cried throughout this whole story.
Aubrey is a very strong and selfless young lady, who has so much love for her family. She put college, life, and romance on hold so she can help take care of her aunt. Her aunt who is her best-friend lost her battle. Ally wanted to go on a journey once she beat her illness. So now Aubrey is going to head out and explore the world for her aunt Ally. This journey that Aubrey takes is much needed and it is as if Ally new this is what was needed for her. Aubrey slipped her way into my heart. While reading this book I could feel her pain and her sorrow.
Adam is a young man that Aubrey’s father has hired to accompany her on this journey. Adam is a photographer who is all set to go on this trip, so he can capture his own moments. In his mind Aubrey is just a spoiled rich girl who needs a babysitter to stay out of trouble.  Adam is more than just a pretty face. He is such a gentleman and is trying his hardest to keep Aubrey safe on this trip. There is so much more to Adam and your heart will break for him as well once you figure his story out.
Then something happens on this journey and Aubrey and Adam realize that they have more in common than just this being on this trip. The ending of this book made me so very happy that yes I cried yet again.
Then I got to the last part of this book I literally crawled into my boyfriend’s lap and sobbed like a baby.  I realized that it doesn’t matter how bad you have it, because you never know what someone else is going through. I also learned that if you love someone whether it’s a girlfriend, boyfriend, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, or best-friend you should tell them you love them every chance you get.
This book is now on my Top 5 book list!!!
So please everyone and anyone read this book. I guarantee that this book will touch your heart and soul, like it has mine!
Thank you Carey Heywood for writing such and amazing story! May you never stop writing such inspiring heartfelt stories……
