Something Blue (Adventures of Darcy, Book 2)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
From the New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed comes a novel that shows how someone with a 'perfect life' can lose it all—and then find everything. Darcy Rhone thought she had it all figured out: the more beautiful the girl, the more charmed her life. Never mind substance. Never mind playing by the rules. Never mind karma. But Darcy's neat, perfect world turns upside down when her best friend, Rachel, the plain-Jane "good girl," steals her fiancé, while Darcy finds herself completely alone for the first time in her life...with a baby on the way. Darcy tries to recover, fleeing to her childhood friend living in London and resorting to her tried-and-true methods for getting what she wants. But as she attempts to recreate her glamorous life on a new continent, Darcy finds that her rules no longer apply. It is only then that Darcy can begin her journey toward self-awareness, forgiveness, and motherhood. Something Blue is a novel about one woman's surprising discoveries about the true meaning of friendship, love, and happily-ever-after. It's a novel for anyone who has ever, even secretly, wondered if the last thing you want is really the one thing you need.

Every year at the Christmas party, they get lousy drunk.” “Sounds like a wild and crazy time,” I said. “Do they ever…you know…hook up?” Marcus asked. His first substantive contribution to the conversation was about geriatric sex. Lovely. Lauren giggled and then launched into a story about Walter and Myrtle and their recent escapades in
since I had consulted a calendar or talked to anyone from home. I had yet to call my parents or brother and notify them that I had left New York, and I felt satisfied knowing that I would be a topic of conversation at the dinner table the following day. “What would you like to do?” Ethan asked me. “Well, the stores will all be open, right?” I asked. “Since it’s not a holiday here?” He made a face. “You want to shop more?” “We could shop for you,” I said, trying to entice him. “I love men’s
over—there was no point in watching her mount her high horse as she had done when I cheated on my high school and college boyfriends. After Jack, I was the portrait of the ideal girlfriend for a long stretch, close to a year. But then I met Lair at a launch party thrown by our PR firm for a new line of hip sportswear called Emmeline. Lair was a gorgeous model from South Africa with caramel-colored skin and eyes so blue they nearly matched the aqua sweatsuit he was wearing. After he smiled at me
I’d better not, he leaned over and planted a quick kiss just to the left of my mouth. His breath smelled of Listerine and his mouth left a trace of wet on my skin. I touched the spot as he said, “I’m so glad your babies are okay, Darce. And I’m glad you’re here.” “Me, too, Ethan. Thank you.” In the darkness of his room, I squeezed my eyes shut and made everything black. I pretended that Ethan and I were really together, a permanent we, on the verge of becoming a real family. I awoke the
