Wanderlust by Kitty French
Amazon * Amazon.de * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads
Ruby has been in love with Ford since their university days, but she hasn't seen her former best friend in years--not since the one unforgettable kiss they shared right before he went off globe-trotting and she stayed behind. When he returns to town unexpectedly for their friends' New Year's Eve wedding, the sparks between them ignite, but can her wanderer ever settle down? Ford has never forgotten Ruby, or the kiss that changed everything between them, despite the many women he has tried to erase her with. His return to England for the wedding means a second chance with Ruby--but will one passion-filled evening with her be enough, or has he finally found his home?
Wanderlust is a short novella, which normally I am just so so on, but this one was really cute. Ruby and Ford had been friends forever, they went to university together and were both in love with the other, but nothing ever happened. Until the night before Ford left when everything changed. Only Ford has been gone for years and Ruby has never really moved on. She can't leave her town, and Ford can't stay so nothing could ever come of the two of them. He didn't even write her on his travels.
Ford loves Ruby, but he didn't want to tie her down. He knows he can't stay in the same town as her, and he just wants what is best for her. So he tries to let her go. Only he can never find anyone who fits him like she does.
When Ford comes home for a mutual friends wedding things heat up between the two of them. But can they make things work? It was so cute, and hot, and fun. A really great, short, quick read.
