From Here to You is a cute little romance. It was super easy to get into and read until the end. There were a few things that bothered me, but overall it was a decent read.
I liked the characters, but it had an unrealistic male lead. I mean, it’s great to read and fantasize about and all, but it’s just not realistic. Yes, there are kind men. Yes, there are handsome men. Yes, there are handsome men who are kind. But I’ve never met a guy like this. Maybe they exist rarely, but Trex is just too good to be true. He’s been dreaming about Darby before he met her. He’s been telling all his friends about her, before he even met her. For years before he met her. He refused to settle with anyone else until he found her. He was waiting for her. And then she turns out to be a bit of a mess and oh – surprise! She’s pregnant. And he doesn’t even give it a second thought. They barely know each other – they’ve never even slept together themselves – and he’s taking on the dad role for someone else’s baby. I mean, come on. It’s just a bit much.
The story captivated me right from the start and it was easy to get right back into the story every time I picked it back up like I never left. At a certain point later in the story, it got to a point where I was just like okay when’s the ex showing up to destroy their happiness? I mean, he’s gotta show up eventually, right?
There were a few things about the ending that bothered me too, but I can’t say without spoiling the story.
Overall, everything was decent, with a few minor annoyances to me personally. This story was nothing overly special, but just a nice easy read.
Best Aspect: Captivity
Worst Aspect: Creativity
About the book
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.
