I’m sitting here trying to remember the details of this book, which I clearly loved at the time (May), but all I can do is remember certain scenes and the feelings in general that the book gave me. So pardon the short review, I won’t have much to say beyond: this was a great romance novel and I enjoyed it a lot.
Georgie, our main character, is temporarily moving back home with no clear idea of what her future is going to look like. When she gets there, her parents have forgotten to tell her that they are letting a friend stay in their house while they are out of town, and instead of putting him (and his adorable dog) out 0n the streets, they agree to share the house for a while, and such close quarters provides lots of chances for falling in lurrve. There’s also the complicating factor that Georgie finds an old notebook from high school that prompts here to do some soul searching, and provides the bulk of the material for the plot. I love what Clayborn does with Levi, the love interest. No spoilers, but I’ve never seen a male MC written the way that he is in a mainstream romance.
My only complaint, and why I didn’t give this the full five stars, is that the third-act breakup didn’t work great for me, even though the very end sort of made up for it.
[4.5 stars, rounded up]
