Gone For You, an all-new small town, second chance romance from Jennifer Van Wyk, is available now!
I wasn’t expecting to find you. The night was only supposed to be a celebration for my friend, but I couldn’t stop my heart, or body, from being drawn to you.
Then I got to know you, and you chipped away every wall I’d built around my heart.
You don’t know how many times I found reasons to talk to you. To see you.
It has to stop.
There’s distance between us I can’t control.
Damn you and your dimple for being so irresistible.
I wish I wasn’t so Gone for You.
I knew I wouldn’t be able to let you go the night you walked into my bar. Everything in me screams to keep you close.
I’m ready to move forward, to stop making excuses to see you, but I know you need more time.
You’ve created this distance between us to protect your heart, but you have to know it’s safe with me.
The moments you give me aren’t enough.
I want you forever and I’ll stop at nothing to make it happen.
After all, I’m so Gone for You.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Jennife Van Wyk starts off a new series of standalones with Gone For You — and it is a real gem! I easily read this book in an evening because I was so taken with Ethan and Olivia’s story.
The pair first meet in the prologue, 10 years earlier, when Liv is on her way to visit her older brother, Owen. She meets “Hotstuff” in the hallway of the apartment building, and their flirty banter follows them all the way up to the third floor… at which point, Ethan discovers that she’s not just his buddy’s younger sister, but only 17 years old. The story picks up a decade later when Liv happens to be in the bar Ethan now owns and runs, and the instant attraction between them has not dimmed over time.
Much of the book is their long-distance romance as they get to know one another through phone calls and text messages. It’s a plot device that I personally love, because I enjoy falling in love with the couple as they are falling in love with one another. The weekends that they do get to spend together are magical, but Liv is hesitant to really go all-in when it comes to the relationship. She’s carrying around some major baggage as a result of being cheated on in the past (as well as the infidelity that lead to her parents’ divorce), and Ethan has the patience of a saint. He’s just that sure of what they have together. So it’s quite shocking when he realizes that HE has some baggage of his own.
I appreciated that there is no outside/ex drama involved in the split that happens between Ethan and Liv. They both need to do some soul-searching and reflection to get their ish together in order to have a healthy relationship. But words hurt, and the things that Ethan says to Liv in a moment of anger may have cut too deep and caused too much damage. Also, since Owen lives far away himself, he’s not a constant presence in their lives. But it’s enough that Liv has reservations in confiding in her brother. Thankfully, Owen is totally supportive, and actually plays a big role in helping Ethan and Liv reunite.
I enjoyed this story so much, and can’t wait to see what happens next with Chloe and Ethan’s buddy, Rex! And I hope that Owen finds someone to help heal his broken heart some day! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

From the Ground Up was Jennifer’s first published novel and now that she was bitten by the writing bug, has no intention of ever stopping. Jennifer makes her home in small town Iowa with her high school sweetheart, three beautiful, hilarious and amazing kids, one crazy Jack Russell terrier. This is where her love for all things reading, baking, and cooking happen. Jennifer’s family enjoys camping, boating, and spending time outside as much as possible. You’ll be her best friend if you can make her laugh and follow up with asking her what to read next. When she’s not writing, you can find her cheering the loudest at her kids’ sporting events (read as: embarrassing them), sipping coffee or iced tea out of a mason jar with her Kindle in her lap or binging on Netflix.
