About this ebook

When my cousin Liv whisked me away to South Africa to be maid of honor in her super-secret celebrity wedding, I was about to begin a five-year residency at NYU and was on my way to becoming a plastic surgeon. My plans definitely did not include a rock-star best man sweeping me off my feet.

But what happened in South Africa needed to stay there—he’d return to his touring and I’d start my residency, with our fond memories of a whirlwind, fairy-tale week. But now nothing feels right—I’m questioning my once solid plans, and I can’t stop thinking about him. Our lives are so different... Am I ready to risk everything I’ve worked for since I was thirteen—and put my heart on the line? To dream bigger than I ever thought possible? To believe I can have it all? That’s the thing about growing up...sometimes you have to be brave enough to redefine happily ever after.

Each book in the Brightside series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

3.5 Stars Amanda "Boots" Conrad is about to start her residency and is on her way to being a plastic surgeon. On a break, she goes to South Africa to maid of honor for her cousin's wedding. While there, she meets Mark, the best man and bassist in Berkeley and the Brightside. After an amazing couple of nights together, it's back to reality and her goal of being accepted into the plastics program at NYU. While both in the same city, Amanda and Mark run into each other several times but it doesn't seem to be the right time. I thought this book was well written but there were definitely parts of the story that felt slow. I loved that Amanda was intelligent, driven, and unwilling to let someone else interfere with her dreams. There were parts of the story that I wished for Mark's POV to know where he stood in this budding relationship. I have not read Liv and Berkeley's story but will be adding it to my TBR! *This is my voluntary review of an Advanced Reader Copy*

About the author

Katie Delahanty is a fashion designer turned novelist. She holds a BA in communication studies from UCLA and a professional designation in fashion design from FIDM. It never occurred to her that she was a writer until an economic crisis–induced career shift from fashion designer to lingerie e-commerce webmistress led her to start the company blog. Not being an expert in lingerie, she decided to write the blog as a fictional serial starring a girl named Olivia Bloom who worked for the lingerie line. And that’s when Katie fell in love with storytelling. She’s been waking before dawn to write ever since.

In addition to writing The Brightside series, Katie is a contributor to Hello Giggles and can be found @katiedelahanty on Twitter and Instagram, posting far too many pictures of her twin daughters. For more info, please visit her website at She loves hearing from you!
