Then tragedy struck and Dani had to bury those childhood dreams in a pine box along with the love of her young life.
The memory of what she lost haunted her until she disappeared into the night, leaving behind everyone, and everything she’d ever known.
Years later, she returns home to find everything has changed. When she meets Kyler, there is something about him that gets past the walls around her heart. Will she let fear control her, or will she let go of the past and learn to love again?

“Second chance at love, 4 stars”
Dani has had the soul deep forever kind of love. But it was ripped away from her leaving her a shell of who she used to be. She left home to find herself only to come back home and do what she left to do. She never expected Kyler. The question is, will she let him in.
Kyler has heard about Dani for years from his best friend. The mystery sister no one hears from, until one day she decides to come home. What he didn’t expect when she knocked on their door was for her to be so beautiful. Then again time can chance someone. Never could he have imagined that his dream girl would be his best friends’ sister or that she would be hesitant. Will he be able to convince her to take a chance on him?
I really did enjoy Dani and Kyler. I thought their love was beautiful and any story that can actually make me cry deserves a high five. There was just one thing I didn’t like and that was how Dani cut everyone out of her life for years but never did anything to move on and I struggled with that. I could understand being hesitant when it comes to relationships when her and Kyler start off, but I really wish she would have done some sort of self-healing beforehand where she was just stagnant.
Even with that said Jenkins killed it. I Never Planned on You was a beautiful heartbreaking kind of story that will shred you then piece you back together. It is very much so one-click worthy.
