No Reverse by Marion Croslydon

A girl who needs to undo the past. A boy who wants to forget it. In love, there’s no way back.

At high school in Steep Hill, Kansas, Cassie O’Malley and Josh MacBride were the poster couple for quarterback/cheerleader romance until they starred in their own tale of teen pregnancy. No need to say: their shotgun wedding was low-key. But when there was no baby anymore, they went their separate ways.

Five years later, Josh has breezed through Georgetown and is about to finish his post-grad degree at Oxford University. He is set to join a lobbying group on Capitol Hill, owned by his new fiancée’s father. For Josh, the sky is now the limit… only he must first take care of a tiny legal matter: technically, he’s still married to the girl who broke his heart.

Meanwhile, Cassie has been waiting tables in Steep Hill to pay for her sick grandmother’s care. On the day of the old lady’s funeral, Cassie is served with two sets of papers. Josh is asking for a divorce. Her heart squeezes, but, well, he moved on a long time ago. But the second envelope shakes Cassie to the core. So, for the first time, she leaves Kansas and heads to good ol’ England.

There, Cassie finds that Josh has not just “moved on,” he’s freakin’ engaged to some blue-blooded heiress. The feelings Cassie had buried deep rush back to her. But no matter if he keeps thrusting the divorce papers under her nose, she needs him to save the only person she loves more than Josh, more than life itself…



This was a very different read, in this kind of genre normally you can predict the ending easily but reading this book sometimes I though I knew what the outcome would be but quickly began to doubt my conclusion and so forth (in the end my predictions were right though) 😉 It was a nice read and emotional too, Cassie’s reasons for her actions were completely unselfish, she didn’t want to hinder her husband’s future, but as a mother myself, I can’t help but put myself in her place and conclude that I could Never do what she did. But let’s remember this is a fictional story and on those grounds I have to say I enjoyed reading about Cassie and Josh’s journey and was overjoyed by the ending given to them in this book. If you are thinking about getting this book you should know that Cassie and Josh’s story will carry on. *This is not a standalone
