Yet when Hayden sees Saylor she looks familiar to him. Hayden’s father then turns up the pressure and gives Hayden has 45 days to find a wife. Saylor’s father then finds out Hayden and Saylor are married.

I really enjoyed it was a fun easy read. This is well written and I really liked the plot. I loved how Saylor remembered getting married to Hayden but she remembers. And she doesn’t tell him yet Hayden knows she looks familiar and he was drawn to her. My heart hurts for Saylor at times for what she had went through. I loved the characters in this story but I do feel Hayden should have stood up to his father . Also Saylor should have told Hayden they were married right away. But I do recommend.
