This month was a bit harder to choose a book. I have been in a bit of a reading slump, lots going on in the evenings and therefor cutting down on some reading time. However, with said slump I still have a favorite to share with you.
I bought this through Amazon.ca via Kindle and the price was $2.99, I try to keep my Kindle purchases to no more than that. I like frugal reading, especially sine the majority of my books are read through the library.
But…back to the book! Here is the summary off of Goodreads: When Lauren Monroe first laid eyes on Michael Delaney back in high school, she had every reason to stay away from him; within minutes of their first encounter, his volatile actions confirmed his notorious reputation. But Lauren saw something in him that caused her to question his bad-boy persona, and against her better judgment, she took a chance. She had no way of knowing that the unlikely friendship they formed would become so important to her.
Or that it would end so painfully.
Eight years later, when Lauren begins her new job at Learn and Grow Day Care, Michael is the last person she expects to see. Refusing to revisit the hurt and confusion of their past, Lauren vows to keep her distance from him. But staying away from Michael proves to be more difficult than she thought, despite her lingering grief and her instincts for self-preservation.
As Lauren and Michael recall the friendship that changed them forever and the events that tore them apart, will they finally be able to heal? Or will the ghosts of Michael’s past prove to be too much to overcome?
I love a good story about old relationships being rekindled and all the hurdles that go with that. For a New Adult book it was really good, the main focus was on these characters and what had happened in the past and how they were moving forward in the present. It wasn’t on the physical side; I feel I have to often state this when I talk about New Adult as it is a huge issue I have with the genre, it being way too physical.
My favorite was the flashbacks and in a way I wish we weren’t always pulled from them. It sometimes took a bit to get back into the present storyline. I like reading about these 2 in high school and the various ups and down of their friendship
All in all it was a cute read, I cannot say that it would rank in my top 10 for the year but a perfect beach/summer read.
