Danny and Liv are back...
Danny loves Liv. He knows he loves her more than she loves him because she ran without a word when she saw their future mapped out before her. He knows he will never love anyone like he loved her and this time he doesn’t think he can move on.
Liv loves Danny. She knows she loves him more than he loves her because he broke her heart in the worst possible way, right when things were falling into place. She knows she will never love anyone like she loves him and this time she doesn’t think she can move on.
They needed a second chance because they just weren’t ready for their first, but when events changed everything between them, they discovered they were just human after all. Now Liv and Danny have to find a way to survive being hurt by each other.
Darra's Review:As Sunny says, I heart Danny. He goes above and beyond to be with her. I was pulling my hair out when the first book ended. Yes, I was screaming in my car. And possibly in a bad mood at work. I wanted my happy ever after for Danny and Liv. They deserved it. With any relationship, there are good times and there are bad times. In this book, you see both.
Liv is beyond hurt with what she saw. But after Liv left, Danny finally found out why. And I too would have done the same Liv did with leaving. No matter the distant between the two, they both must be together. Danny will do anything to be by Liv's side. He knows that she is his soul mate and can't live without her(Just like every book should be).
I do not want to give too much away as Sunny says as well. But I laughed, I cried, I felt there pain and was angry at one point. If a book can do that much damage to me, it is a must read.
I give the book a 4.7. Danny and Liv are characters you will not forget(And I am very forgetful). It will always be on my must reread list.
Sunny's Review:I was not going to read this book at first. Most of you know that Darra and I have been swamped and can hardly keep up with work, family and the blog. So a lot of times we will split the books and tours up. Darra picked this series and read Just Human. She wasn't even finished when she told me I was reading it too b/c it was so great. So I read it.
I totally fell in love with Danny from the beginning. I loved in the first book reading the emails between them and getting to see them get to know each other again. It was so amazing. I love it. So I don't want to spoil anything for you if you haven't read the first book. I recommend you stop now and go get it. Danny is so sweet and amazing. Liv is awesome in that she has made a great life and great friends. Danny did too. The way the first book ended was a total WHAT!!??? WHY??!!! I enjoyed the second book and watching them both try to get over their trust issues. I mean they both have abandonment issues with each other stemming from when they were separated as teenagers. Danny is so freaking AMAZING and SWEET and WHERE IS MY DANNY???? I mean we all know that Phillip from That Boy by Jillian Dodd is my #1 but Danny made a run for the 2nd spot!
I am giving this book 4.6 stars out of 5. It is amazing and I am putting this in my I need a pick me up book rotation. I can't believe that Danny actually sat down with Darra and I for an interview and let me tell you...it was SUPER GEEK GIRL FAN MANIA in this place! Check it out.
INTERVIEW WITH DANNY!!!
OMG!! I just saw Danny walk in!!!
Sunny: (deep breath) Ok…calm down! You are going to scare
him away before we get any of the goods.
Darra: Ok Ok…I am calm. (wipes sweaty palms on jeans)
Darra: Hi Danny. We are so excited that you are here!
Danny: Thanks for inviting me!
Sunny: We can’t wait to hear about how you and Liv are doing
so let’s dive in!!
Darra: What is your
absolute favorite childhood memory of Liv?
Danny: So many to chose from. I think it has to be the time when
she fell off her bike and skinned her knees. We weren't all that young maybe
thirteen, so she was past the whole falling off your bike stage that all kids
go through. We were coming home from school and something got caught, a twig or
something. She went down pretty hard and I thought she was going to cry, but
instead she got up and kicked her bike. She was so mad at the bike. I loved her
for that. She was feisty even then. It's my favourite memory because I remember
it was the first time I ever wanted to kiss her. Of course it took me forever
to actually get up the nerve to do it, but that stands out in my mind as the
first time I ever saw her that way. She was beautiful, angry, but beautiful!
Sunny: (both sighing) awww…that is sooooo sweet. Do you think that y’all would have ever
gotten back together if Connie hadn’t contacted you? You both admit you were in
limbo even though you didn’t realize it…do you think you would have ever done
it on your own?
Danny: I'd love to say sure, but the truth is probably no. We had
both accepted life as it was. We'd adapted and were surviving. I can't imagine
after 12 years what it would have taken to push one of us to blindly take the
leap. The desire was always there, somewhere deep down. But Connie's message
gave me the confidence to try, without that I would have just carried on. Liv
was the same.
Darra: So you were
going to propose when you were kids…what was the moment that you knew Liv was
THE ONE for you?
Danny: The moment my parents told me we were moving back to LA. I
hadn't had to think about it until then, but it was like a reflex - I can't
leave her. There was no doubt in my mind. I wanted to yell it at my parents,
either she comes with me or I stay! That was when I knew.
Darra: When you left
for Cali did you know right away that you had to let her go or were you ever
planning on trying to make it work?
Danny: I think I hoped that she would want me to try, but I
had left already thinking that she was ready to let go, so I felt like I had no
choice. I called a few times, but it was too hard to hear her moving on, so I
Sunny: Do you have any new tats to show us?
Danny: We both had 'Willow' added to our trees. I can show
you if you like...*Lifting shirt*
Sunny: (blushing) So
seriously…this is going to be personal…we know that you talked to Jen about
donating to them for their baby…but did you and Scott ever sit down and really
talk about it…just the 2 of you as guys? I feel so awkward asking this…
Danny: It all happened so fast, I offered, and then I was
back in London within a couple of days. I didn't really get the chance to talk
to him about it man to man. But when we came back to LA, when I was in the
process of donating, we did finally go out for a beer and talked it through.
Scotts a pretty relaxed guy and he knows I'll do anything for Jen. His attitude
was that they needed help and rather than take potluck he was happy to take the
help from me. There’s no weirdness between us.
Darra: (shaking her head) Let’s get back to the good
stuff…When you FINALLY proposed(!!!!) did you think there was a chance she
would say no? I mean that is a huge deal that you pulled off!! And then how
nervous were you when you told her that you planned the whole wedding for the
Danny: Obviously I was nervous, who wouldn't be? But by then I was
pretty confident that she would say yes. I just had to go for it. I needed to
make it happen, no matter what. As for the whole next day thing...well I was
nervous about that, control is her thing, I wanted to show her that she could
let go and everything would still be fine. It worked.
Sunny: (sighing) What
made you think to do it at the tree? Did you know how much it meant to her too
or was it just b/c of its meaning to you?
Danny: I went to look at a couple of hotels and wanted to scream.
The whole thing was so not our scene, so Max and I decided we could pull it off
at the bar. But we needed somewhere for the ceremony. I was having a really
hard time coming up with somewhere special enough, so I went for a walk to
think and ended up at the tree. When I got back, Max asked me where I had been
and I told him I had gone to think about a location for the ceremony and ended
up at the tree. We just looked at each other. I could not believe that I hadn't
thought of it before. It was perfect
Darra: Now that you broke all of our hearts and are married with a kid, are you still working in
the bar as well as the computer company?
Danny: Yes, although we both work less. I work from home on my
stuff, I only take a few jobs here and there. We both work at the bar. I love
it and I love that Liv has let go of it a little. Max and I work really well
together and I want Liv to take her time with Willow and not feel like she
can't be away from the bar. It is a family business now!
Sunny: Are there more
kids to come and do we have names yet?
Danny: I hope there will be more, one more. But not yet, we are
enjoying life as it is right now. No names yet. We will have to just see.
Sunny: Please keep in mind Sunny is a great name very
Danny: I agree! I'll make a note, Liv will love it!
Darra (snorts with laughter) Sure (still laughing)
Sunny: (glares) My name is awesome & totally fits me.
Darra: Whatever dude. So we have to
ask…Halloween was last week…did you do the cute couples costumes? Was there a
party at the bar or were out trick or treating with the baby?
Danny: Halloween is not big in the UK. We had a Halloween party at
the bar, which was fun and yes we did dress up. All the staff dressed as super
heroes, Liv was Wonder Woman, naturally and I was Superman. We had a great
Sunny: Thank you so
much for taking the time out of your hectic schedule to visit us.
Danny: It was my pleasure.
Darra: Yes we really do appreciate it and I apologize if we
were a little goofy…
Danny: Thanks for having me.

This song makes me think of Danny and Liv...
Hopefully Kerry doesn't mind that I added this...I mean even the tree at the beginning. LOVE IT.
I shake my head, the gloves are really off. I’m too stunned to speak.
“If she did leave for the reasons you think, then I won’t mention it again. But you have to find out for sure.”
Feeling the anger rising up in me, I grab my keys. “I can’t handle this.” I say as I storm past her and out the door.
I’m fuming as I back my truck out of the parking lot. Who the hell does she think she is? This is emotional blackmail. I expected better of her.
When I get in I slam my keys on the counter and pace back and forth. I really needed to sleep, now Jen has got me so worked up, there is just no way that’s going to happen. It’s not like I didn’t call her, when she was missing I was frantic. She has dozens of messages from me and she didn’t have the decency to put my mind at ease. I had to hear from her family that she had flown home, at least she left them a note! As if I would call her now. She left me. Even as I’m thinking this while pacing around like a caged animal, the idea that she may have left for another reason starts to incubate. I haven’t given it a thought before, I’ve been too angry. I’m still too angry I think, shaking it out of my head.
I sit at my desk and fire up the computer. My fingers drum while they wait for something to do. As soon as I’m in, I start furiously hammering the keys. Work will block this ridiculous chain of thoughts out.
Twenty minutes in, I’ve made so many mistakes and had to retrace my steps too many times. I put my head in my hands. This can’t be happening. Work was the only distraction I had and now, thanks to Jen, Liv has crept into that too.
I drop onto my bed and close my eyes. Not to sleep but just for lack of other inspiration. What if Jen’s crazy notion is right? What if Liv thinks I did something wrong? Surely I would have had a call from someone if they thought I had wronged her? If I thought Scott had cheated on Jen I would have been all over it. Max would have done the same wouldn’t he? Maybe I should call him. Then I don’t have to chase Liv, I can just find out what I need to know from him and put this mess to rest once and for all.
Before I know it I’m dialling his number, I’ve always been slightly impulsive. My stomach is in knots. It rings and I hold my breath.
“Hi,” he answers with a tone of uncertainty.
