    ➳Second chances at finding your TRUE soulmate are very rare, but in this compelling romance story by Jamie McGuire there is only perfection and true admiration... ➳I'm not the biggest fan of romance stories with military or army heroes that have a broken heart and need mending from their true mate, but this one has changed my mind in every retrospective of wanting more of the story when it comes down to Darby and Trex. Scott "Trex" is an alph...

    I think I've officially outgrown Jamie McGuire. I read Beautiful Disaster waaaay back in 2011 and enjoyed it, but I haven't read Jamie McGuire since my epic fails with Providence and Walking Disaster in 2013. Now I remember why. From Here to You was tedious, cliched, and, worst of all, boring. God, if you read these books and you think that this is all that the romance world has to offer, I have news for you. First of all, lemme talk about the in...

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKI have no shame in admitting I love a good damsel in distress story, especially when her savior is a military man. So when I saw the blurb for Jamie McGuire's newest book you can bet i jumped at the chance to read it. From Here to You is the story of Darby, a runaway bride who left her abusive fiance on her wedding day, and Trex, a retired Marine trying to start over with a new job in the one place he thinks will bri...

    From Here to You by Jamie McGuire is the first book of the new Crash and Burn contemporary romance series. While this is the opening of a new series apparently the characters in From Here to You were minor players in another series, I believe The Maddox Brothers although I’m not 100% sure as this is my first novel I’ve read from Jamie McGuire myself. Having finished this one and loving it though I can say you don’t need to have read the pre...

    IPADS FLAT WILL WRITE UP REVIEW LATER FROM HERE TO YOU: is the first book, full length, romance novel in J. McGuire's ‘Crash and Burn' series.We’re first introduced to Darby Dixon as she’s contemplating becoming a runaway bride, having taken a pregnancy test in the toilet of the church she’s getting married in where she’s having second thoughts, and for good reason too, a toxic, overbearing fiancé, she knows she doesn’t want to br...

    ⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱*Disappointed*⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱ I am surprised at how little I actually liked the book. How little I liked the story and the characters. Why I'm surprised? Well, Jamie McGuire gave us Travis Maddox, but apparently no one else can live up to him and specially not the former Marine, Scott ‘Scottie’ ‘Trex’ Solomon Trexler (35). He was nice and kind and all that, but there was nothing special about him, nothing that made m...

    ARC provided via NetGalley for an honest review. I was happy to see that Jamie was releasing a new series. However it was very short lived because for majority of the book, nothing happened!Darby leaves her abusive ex at the altar and flees to start over with and hide from him. She swears off dating and just wants to focus on her and her unborn child. She meets Trex at the hotel that she gets a job at and they have an instant connection. I hate t...

    From Here to You has everything I should love in a contemporary romance. A woman, Darby, skips out on her wedding day after finding out she is pregnant. The child gave her the strength to run from an abusive relationship.Trex was in the military, worked for the FBI and now works in a classified security job for a secret government project. He sees Darby working at the hotel he's checked into near his new job and instantly knows she is the woman f...

    Release Date: August 21, 2018 Genre: Romantic Suspense Actual Rating: 3.5-4 starsJamie McGuire has always been one of my favorite authors as I fell in love with Beautiful Disaster. While none of her other books truly stacked up to that one, I think From Here to You is on that track. It's a sweet, single mother/surprise pregnancy romance with suspenseful elements, and a one of a kind alpha hero. Trex is dreamy. He's a special agent, fiercely pr...

    Even though Darby Dixon has made more bad decisions than she can count, she refuses to marry her abusive fiance on the day of their wedding once she figures out she’s pregnant. With a small handful of cash on hand, she escapes from everything she’s ever known on the day of her wedding to start over in Colorado Springs. When she arrives there, she isn’t expecting to meet Scott Trexler. He’s dangerous, mysterious, and she can’t get him ou...

    I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 3 Stars I was hooked from page one when a victim of domestic abuse is ready to set foot down the aisle to be married to her abuser. The runaway bride takes off with precious cargo in her belly, with only the bridal gown on her back. This resonated with me for varying reasons. Darby flees to Colorado Springs, and that was yet another tie linking me to the novel itself, as I visit ...

    ***2.5 Stars***It pains me in so many ways to have to rate a novel by an author that I hold up so high on a pedestal, so low… My heart is legit broken. one thing I learned through my life when it comes to reading. it is humanly impossible to love every book, no matter how bad you want it to happen.About From Here To You:Darby is on the run from her abusive ex-fiance after leaving him at the altar. On the day of her wedding she realized with a p...

    Find this review and others at Carlene Inspired.Darby is no damsel in distress, but that doesn't mean Trex doesn't want to sweep her off her feet and protect her in his castle. A sweet, southern girl from Texas with nothing but the clothes on her back and a hotel job, Darby knows the road will be all uphill, but it's worth it to give her baby something better. She isn't just playing hard to get when she ignores the advances of the hotshots in Col...

    This book! I ate it up in a day! I don't know how but before I knew it was 50% done. Darby is such a strong character. She learned she was pregnant on her wedding day and instead of marrying an abusive man she chose to run and give her and her unborn child the chance at a better life. This decision also made the future scary and unpredictable. By luck and a personality that seems to draw everyone to her she lands a job at a hotel. This is where e...

    DNF 60%Another McGuire that bites the dust.I think it's time for me to give her books up, no matter how appealing the premises are, because I cannot take any more disappointment. I pushed through as long as I could but honestly, there are way too many amazing unread books out there and too little time to waste it around in a book that reads like a draft that was never edited. I swear, paragraphs must have been forgotten or went missing because no...

    Truth: This read like a choppy old western.I had to constantly remind myself this was a contemporary fiction and not based somewhere in the 1800s or whatever.It felt choppy and dislocated, all jagged edges. The fact that this was my first Jamie McGuire turned out to be an issue (when it shouldn't have been) what with all the name dropping. I just couldn't keep track of all the characters that kept showing up. My head's still reeling from that ove...

    "I have a long, bad history with jerks," she said."I can pretend to be one long enough to get your attention.""You have it."The contemporary romance queen is back and armed with your next book boyfriend. From Here To You exceeded all my expectations, and it even brought back the same feelings I experienced while reading Beautiful Disaster.In signature McGuire style, the story picks up right in the middle of a crisis. The struggle is there, the ch...

    "From Here to You" is supposed to be the start to a new series by Jamie McGuire. It's about Darby, who escapes an abusive fiancé on her wedding day. She ends up in a hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado where she works the front desk and meets Scott 'Trex' Trexler. This had the potential to be a great story but unfortunately it fell short. Even though this book is the start of a new series I kept feeling like I was missing something. Characters w...

    3.5/5 starsFrom Here to You is the first book in the new Crash and Burn series. This is a spin-off from the Maddox Brothers series. However, some events from the Maddox Brothers books are actually shown again in this book. And Tyler and Taylor Maddox have minor roles in this story.I like the Maddox Brothers. But I think that I would have preferred to have this series be completely separate from the author's previous books. How many times do we ha...

    When you get a second chance to find your happiness, you don't think twice before grabbing it.What an amazing story! Full of emotions and drama. If you've read the blurb, you'll know we have a pregnant runaway bride as a heroine, determined to leave her abusive fiancé and go as far away as possible from him, to make a better life for her baby and herself. She gets to Colorado, where she meets a former Marine, Trex. He's that kind of hero that be...

    This was one book that I was so excited to read after I received an arc. Something made me wait and push it back on my list. Now I know why. Nothing about this story was appealing, the characters were dull, and it was about two hundred pages too long. No matter how many pages that I’ve read, it felt as if thirty more were added. It was never ending. The first ten pages pulled me in and I couldn’t read that fast enough and that was it for the ...

    From here to You is the newest Jamie McGuire romance and fans of her Maddox brothers will love this! Let me start with the things that bothered me. Why you ask? Because I still loved this book regardless! Darby is one of those girls that is so beautiful, everyone wants her. I'm kind of tired of this too gorgeous heroine. I am over the author constantly pointing out how pretty and desired the heroine is. Its shallow and vapid. Why are characters ...
