About WHEN LIGHT LEADS TO YOU
Once upon a time, there was a girl who had a crush on a boy. Eventually, they fell in love. They lived happily ever after.
Except they didn’t. Not even close.
I’m the girl, but that’s not my story.
Once upon a time, I fell for a boy, but we didn’t have a happily ever after. In fact, we crashed and burned. Which turned out to be for the best because it forced me to grow up and realize the only wedding bells in my future are the ones I orchestrate for clients.
For six years I’ve been perfectly content with meaningless, short-lived flings and running from anything that resembles a real relationship.
He’s my best friend’s brother, and he’s no longer the boy I fell for—he’s a man I can’t stand.
Oh, and he’s also my new neighbor.
Seemingly overnight, Jasmine Winters went from being my sister’s best friend to being the girl I couldn’t get enough of. But like most good things, it didn’t last.
Things fell apart so suddenly, I’m able to convince myself that summer never happened. At least, I was, until the only distance between us is a hallway instead of a time zone.
Six years ago, I let Jasmine slip through my fingers without an explanation because I was convinced we’d be better off apart. But now that we’re neighbors, our unspoken vow of apathy has unwittingly been shattered. Our exchanges consist of trading insults and icy stare downs. But in-between, I catch glimpses of the way she used to look at me, glimpses of the girl I fell for years ago.
Things are different now, though. This time… I won’t let her walk away without giving me answers.
When Light Leads to You is the second full-length novel of the Forget Me Knot series, but can be read as a standalone. **Due to strong language and the sexy times between these two, this book is recommended to readers ages 18 and up.**

My rating: 3 1/2 out of 5 stars
Jasmine is a wedding planner, and has had a thing for her best friend’s brother since she was ten years old. She moves to New York for an internship forms a friendship with Dean (the brother). After a little encouragement from her friend, Jasmine goes to tell Dean how she feels, and she overhears Dean telling his roommate that doing anything with Jasmine would be a mistake. Thus begins Jasmine’s “love em and leave em” attitude towards men.
Fast forward six years and Jasmine lives in her hometown of Austin, and Dean has recently moved back to work in private security for his college roommate. Dean moves across the hall from Jasmine, and her hatred of Dean shows through constantly. Dean has no clue why Jasmine hates him so much – until she tells him. He’s devastated that he hurt Jasmine so much, but honestly, how could he have possibly known that Jasmine was in the stairwell and heard something he said 6 years ago.
Dean sets out to win over Jasmine’s heart, but she is resistant. I didn’t love Jasmine at first. Her mother’s death sent her over the edge, and she became a hard person.
Dean, on the other hand, is AMAZING. Dean took charge when his ex-girlfriend died and he made sure her brother, Nate, was taken care of and given the opportunity to finish school and go to college. Dean was also dealing with a crazy ex, Natasha, whom I hated. She was a really awful character.
I liked the side characters in this story. Jade and Emmett, Jasmine’s best friend and her fiancé, were the stars of the first book (which I didn’t read). I liked Elliott, their assistant, and I LOVED Nate. Nate was a great character, who really loved and appreciated everything Dean had done for him.
The story itself was a little long. I felt like it just dragged on, but I liked the ending, and I really liked the epilogue.
Overall, a good read and I would recommend.
