When all signs point to heartbreak, can love still be a rule of the road? A poignant and romantic novel from the author of Bittersweet and Twenty Boy Summer.Jude has learned a lot from her older sisters, but the most important thing is this: The Vargas brothers are notorious heartbreakers. She’s seen the tears and disasters that dating a Vargas boy can cause, and she swore an oath—with candles and a contract and everything—to never have anything to do with one. Now Jude is the only sister still living at home, and she’s spending the summer helping her ailing father restore his vintage motorcycle—which means hiring a mechanic to help out. Is it Jude’s fault he happens to be cute? And surprisingly sweet? And a Vargas? Jude tells herself it’s strictly bike business with Emilio. Her sisters will never find out, and Jude can spot those flirty little Vargas tricks a mile away—no way would she fall for them. But Jude’s defenses are crumbling, and if history is destined to repeat itself, she’s speeding toward some serious heartbreak…unless her sisters were wrong? Jude may have taken an oath, but she’s beginning to think that when it comes to love, some promises might be worth breaking.

I haven’t had the greatest track record with Sarah Ockler’s books, so I was quite nervous coming into it. Really, I didn’t know why I gave her another chance, even though her earlier, and also more family focused, Fixing Delilah ended up working out pretty well, but I am glad I did. This is going ...
I expected a light summer read. Summer, motorcycles, hot guy.... Anyone? I got what I asked for, but I got so much more. What started out light and flirty soon become quite sad and serious at some parts. Jude`s dad has Alzheimer and his memory is fading quickly. Jude hopes that restoring dad`s belov...
This novel was powerful and well-written, however, the book didn't stand out from all the other contemporaries. I will try some more Sarah Ockler, as this book did have some good parts and I have heard so much praise. The tragic part was the father's case of Alzheimer's. This frequently left me in ...
This book broke my heart. It made me cry and laugh...at the same time. It is absolutely beautiful, heartbreaking, and soul-crushing...and then it heals you. Seriously, I can't really explain it. But I know I will read this book over and over again. (And I'm not huge on rereading.) In fact, I kind of...
