When you're lost, sometimes the only place you can go is home. Broken over the death of her fiancé, Molly leaves law school to return to her childhood home in North Carolina. Expecting to lay low until she can figure out what else to do with her life, she finds herself in the arms of her high school sweetheart, the boy who represents everything from the past she tried to leave behind. Looking for an escape, she instead finds a way back to the girl she almost forgot existed and a future she never dreamed possible.


First, I want to say how much I enjoy anything written by Alyssa Rose Ivy.  Every time I open one of her books I know its going to be fabulous.  So with that being said you pretty much know exactly what I think of this one as well. 

Derailed, is mainly all about second chances and love.  This new adult romance book is one that I would suggest anyone that loves romance and the second chance books to read. 

I will say that I really wanted more of the back story of these great characters in this book.  I needed to know more about their pasts.  I did however love the plot and all the funny yet awkward moments in this book.  I was cheering for the characters the whole time and laughing so hard at the funny parts in this book.  I also love the way Alyssa writes and this book was no exception.  I enjoyed reading every single word. I also loved all the characters, not just the main ones but the secondary characters as well.  It's not every day that I end up loving all the characters in a book and this one I did.  I even liked "the other guy" the one that tried to get into Molly's life, but I only enjoyed the way he was written.  Alyssa does a great way of creating a story that pulls you in and keeps you there.  That is one thing I really enjoy about all her books. 

I can't wait to read more about these characters in this series. I mean come on who wouldn't want to read a book about lovably hot men?
