The crossing paths of friendship, family, love, and loss are often complicated.
June Deckert and Caroline Smith sparked a friendship in college that carried them through graduation. Although they are complete opposites in every way, they have spent the last four years inseparable.
That is, until now.
June finds herself falling for a man who seems unattainable. As she works side by side with him on a new media campaign, their feelings for each other come alive. But when his actions start to speak louder than words, she wonders if she’s missing something.
Meanwhile, Caroline is fighting against her feelings for a recent acquaintance, and she decides to keep her new love interest a secret from June. Overwhelmed by these new emotions, her moods change swiftly, swinging up and down like a yo-yo.
While June and Caroline try to maneuver their way through new relationships, Caroline starts lying to June to protect her from a truth that threatens to break her heart and tear them apart.
In the end, Caroline’s deceit will test their friendship, and June will have to decide if her chance at love is worth putting her heart on the line.
My VERY HIGH ****4 STAR**** Review
WOW!! I could not put this one down – literally!! I was up until 3:30am NEEDING to finish this book before I could go on with my life (or sleep).
This book is very unique in that you get 4 peoples perspectives. I’ll have to say that it is rather shocking when you fully understand how their lives are intertwined together! I fully enjoyed each of the characters, and found myself laughing and swooning right along with June and her best friend Caroline over both Cohen and Liam.
When I was very first introduced to June and Caroline, I thought their reactions to the guys were a bit on the silly and/or desperate side. But, I found I didn’t think that way for long at all! It was just a few paragraphs later that I found myself smiling, and then smiling some more, and well, yeah – you get the picture. But, I wasn’t just smiling and swooning, I often had to restrain myself from laughing out loud and waking my sleeping husband beside me. The story of how Cohen and June meet is just stinking hilarious!
“Try to keep your hands to yourself, so you don’t assault me.” ~ Cohen
This isn’t just your average sappy love story or romantic comedy, though. This story packs a serious punch in the gut! There are some major upsets in this story – the heartbreaking kind with twists you NEVER see coming.
“I need to love again. Please, please understand.” ~ Cohen
I’d love to explain that one – but you’ll have to read it for yourself!! You won’t be sorry! This story is one that definitely pulls on your heartstrings!! And, if it wasn’t already obvious, I got quite attached to June & Cohen.
So, a very HIGH four stars – so close to being 5 stars for me (and I RARELY give those!). If you’re like me, and you love a book that speaks to your emotions – this is it! I can’t wait to read more from Melanie!!
Warning: this book contains some strong language.

About the Author ~ MelanieStinnett
I have enjoyed reading and writing since I was very young. Some of my fondest memories from childhood are of spending time with my mom or grandma reading a good book. Over the years, it never crossed my mind that writing my own novel would be an attainable goal. After reading several independently published novels by Jamie McGuire, Colleen Hoover and others, I decided I needed to give that dream a chance. So, I began writing. My debut novel, Crossing Paths released on August 28, 2013.
When I’m not reading and writing, I enjoy spending time with my three favorite guys: my husband and my two little boys.
In addition to being an author, I work as a Speech Language Pathologist to provide therapy to adults who are dealing with speech, language, cognition or voice deficits. My day job is rewarding in many different ways and I love having the opportunity to help others in a time of need
