Publisher's Summary

Discover a new series from the author of the number-one New York Times best-seller Beautiful Disaster: a "[H]eartbreaking and hopeful, raw and sexy" tale about a woman on the run who encounters a stranger with a secret (Lauren Blakely, author of Part-Time Lover). 

As Darby Dixon sits in a tiny Texas church bathroom on her wedding day holding a positive pregnancy test, she realizes marrying her fiancé would be the worst decision of her life. She's never been very good at standing up for herself, but she'll sure as hell stand up for her baby. With very little cash and a ton of courage, she flees town to take a new name and start a new life.

As a Marine, Scott "Trex" Trexler worked in the most treacherous, corrupt, war-torn places on earth. With his new top-secret security job, he finally has a chance to return to the one place he's felt at peace: Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The moment Trex checks in at the hotel where she's working, Darby knows he's dangerous. He may want her to think he's another hotshot firefighter, along with all the others battling the nearby mountain blaze, but something doesn't add up. No way will she get involved with another man she can't fully trust - and Trex clearly isn't telling her everything. As Darby's ex gets closer and closer to finding her, both she and Trex will soon find out that what you don't know can hurt you.

Love is happy with the truth

#Audible1
Darby's relationship with her ex-fiancee Sean Littlefield was a disgrace. He beat her and treated her worse than a dog, so she leaves him at the altar. Everyone who knew him would have understood because he was a major asshole. The reason Darby left, however, was because she was pregnant and owed it to her future child to have a better life.
Thank heavens Darby got away with the help of a friend and good samaritan. Darby was able to catch a bus out of town with not much money to spare. She headed to the furthest place the bus would take her which was Colorado Springs.

To story progressed very slow per usual with a Jamie McGuire book, but it was well written, and I liked it. Karissa Vacker and Andrew Eiden performed Darby and Trex exceptionally well and held my attention.

Darby kept her pregnancy a secret for reasons I did not know. It just added to the confusion and uncertainty of what she was facing. A single homeless girl alone in an unfamiliar town unsure of where to go, who to trust, and keeping an unborn baby a secret was not a wise decision if you ask me. She was kind of dumb. I mean I guess she was trying to be independent but now was not the time for that and she needed to trust someone to help her. Enter Trex. He could and would help her in all the right ways, but she was still acting like a jerk IMO. She infuriated me.

She could have been a little more concerned when it came to taking care of her and her baby. If you were pregnant and needed a roof over your head, food in your belly, clothes, the essentials of everything you need, would you refuse it out of sheer pride and stubbornness? Hell to the No! Is what I think. Darby was just plain stupid when Trex offered her to live with him. She would also be safe from her ex too. I didn't like that bit. If it was to show that Darby wasn't greedy well there were other ways to do that I suppose. I felt terrible for Trex aka Trexler because he liked her at this point.

Trex had a secret of his own that he was a particular marine soldier masquerading as a fireman.
I fell asleep listening to it around chapter 13 and woke up after 1 a.m in section 22, so sorry I missed it.
It was near Thanksgiving and Darby, and Trex had hot sex. Trexler has his group of soldiers he'd hang with and wanted to introduce them all to Darby now his girlfriend. Naomi, Logan, Martinez, Sloane, Kitch.
Once, they found some dead rabbits piled up in a mound in some front yard and knew it was Sean and that he was here in Colorado Springs. He left a note that said "MINE" on top. Sean's favourite word for Darby was 'bunny.' That is how sick and fucked up this guy was. Darby wasn't her real name either, but I think it was Scottie? Because I can't remember her real name, you are going to have to forgive me.
Well, I would like to say it ended happily ever after but not everything turned up roses. There were a few pushing daisies.
I hope to read more about it though.

not my favorite

struggled with this book, I love this author so I kept trying to read it hoping for a surprise. it was predictable and I didn't feel any connection for the characters. I found the female lead to be a bit of a pushover and the Male character a pathological liar. very disappointed with this book.

Trex gives Travis a run for his money as McGuire’s top leading man. A beautiful love story!

It has taken me a few weeks to write my review but I wanted to do this book justice. I realized that I can never sum this book up perfectly for you.
Here’s what I can say...
Jamie McGuire is back and 100%. If you loved Beautiful Disaster, you’ll love From Here to You. As I read I kept having those same feelings that I did when I read about Travis and Abby. I wanted Trex and Darby to make it, to succeed, to be ok, to love and hold on.
These characters are breathtaking. Darby is the perfect combination of strength and vulnerability. She realizes her worth and is determined to get it. Trex is an ex-military bada** that you fall in love with from the start. He knows what he wants and has had no problem waiting his life for it. He wasn’t going to settle and he won’t give it up now. I’m not a huge love at first sight fan, but Trex made me fall in love with Darby right along with him and I enjoyed every single second of it.

"When you know, you know, and I knew the second I saw Darby Cooke. It was the first-sight nonsense that until that moment I would've said was bullshit. Since that moment, she'd been the center of my universe, and there was so much more to get to know..."

“No one can love you like I do. I’ll make sure it’s impossible.”- Trex (I mean come on with that!)
“Be you, unapologetically.”- Trex

This is one of those books that you’ll “highlight” half of the words, as quotes jump out at you on every page. That’s what draws me to McGuire’s work so much, is her ability to make me feel every word I read in every inch of my bones. This book is no different. Some lines will touch you in your soul and leave you changed, I know some did for me and I couldn’t be happier about it.

You’ll go on highs and lows with Trex and Darby and you’ll thank Jamie McGuire for every single one of them.

Very disappointed.

Story was weak and tried to create drama out of barely anything. I have read many of Jamie McGuire's other books and was very disappointed in this one.

far fetched but enjoyable

this was a good book. I really struggled with (spoiler....) the fact that this guy could so easily fall in love with and want to be with this woman after such a short time. and then him saying he loved her it was just too little 'get to know you' before they were a relationship. 0 to 60.

This book spoke to me! So good! Loved it!

I was curious about Trex from his appearance in the Maddox Brothers books. He was so mysterious and I wondered who the heck “his people” were. I even remember not liking him at one point. Now that I’ve read and listened to it, I have to say that he was NOT what I expected. He was pretty freaking cute, has a great sense of humor and really appealed to me. I absolutely love him! And Darby... Gah! I related to her on so many levels. Both of them spoke to me deeply. There were so many times that I felt like one or both of them were speaking directly to me. I had to pause several times while listening and just let what they said sink in. This book came at just the right time in my life and I absolutely loved and adored it. Amazing read and listen. I highly recommend it. Trex and Darby are definitely high on my list of favorite McGuire couples!

Nope

Ok, I am just going to say that I wasted a credit on this and didn't make it half way through this book. Normally I will stick a book out just to see if it got better or maybe could wrap itself up - but this one, no. The narration was alright, that's the only positive I have for it. Not even 10 minutes in to this book and we are praying. Another half hour or so into it and we are arguing about religion. While I'm not against this subject, I don't want to read about it or talk about it or think about it when I'm just trying to lose myself in a different place. The female character came off as whiny which annoys me to no end. I can't say anything else about the book because I just can't finish it. If this type of story line is for you, give it a go. If you are looking for the strong alpha rescuing a single mom and all that normally comes with it as far as back story goes - look somewhere else. Personally I think this book should be listed in the religious and spiritual category, not where it is now.

Left Me Wanting More

3.5 Stars

I wasn't wowed nor was I completely disappointed in this story there were just a LOT of things that rubbed me wrong. I felt for Darby right from the beginning; however, as the story evolved I just wanted to reach into the story and shake the crap out of her. Trex was an appealing male lead but I didn't completely believe his actions. There was way too many side characters and additional storylines jumbled into the mix. I felt like I really needed to read the previous series of books to get a grasp on when in the time line of the books this one occurred. Then I can't even start to dissect the religious overture that was laced throughout the story. Just not my fave.

This specific video review will be included in the December 2018 wrap-up.
