This story is told in the Now and Then

An interesting mix of friends on their way to a mutual friend’s wedding have to combine into one car after they get into a fender bender. This combines two exes that were hoping to show themselves off to each other at the wedding instead they are in close quarters for a long road trip with their friends that are not helping.

The Then shows how these two met and fell in love.

If you don’t relate to these antics sans the wealth, I apologize. Everyone should be young and careless for a bit. But not all of us have the “luxury”. This feels so relatable as not everyone in a friend groups gets along and when break ups happen people always take sides and of course the true story gets skewed.

Can I just say I really don’t like Marcus? He is not helpful at all and is either jealous of Dylan or the time others take from him. (I wrote this halfway through and I will give him credit for the end of the book lol)

I had a friend that acted like the guys I dated didn’t exist and would blank stare and not acknowledge me when I would talk about my now husband, suffice to say we don’t talk anymore. 

Weddings bring out the best and worst in people. At my wedding rehearsal there was major traffic and my whole wedding party was late. Then later I found out my college friends were fighting or at least verbally being mean to each other during the reception but not when I would come up to them they would act all happy.  Lol open bars amirite!

This was told in the way I adore, the slowly revealing the past and how we got to the messed up outcome we find ourselves in.

Addie and her sister are about to embark on an epic road trip to a friend’s wedding in the north of Scotland. The playlist is all planned and the snacks are packed.

But, not long after setting off, a car slams into the back of theirs. The driver is none other than Addie’s ex, Dylan, who she’s avoided since their traumatic break-up two years earlier.

Dylan and his best mate are heading to the wedding too, and they’ve totalled their car, so Addie has no choice but to offer them a ride. The car is soon jam-packed full of luggage and secrets, and with three hundred miles ahead of them, Dylan and Addie can’t avoid confronting the very messy history of their relationship…

Will they make it to the wedding on time? And, more importantly… is this really the end of the road for Addie and Dylan?
