Blurb: Most people dream about getting out of Sharon, Nebraska, but after three years away, Lauren Barrett is coming home. She has her reasons–missing her family, losing her college scholarship. But then there’s the reason Lauren can’t admit to anyone: Rob Conrad, her best friend’s older brother.
Football prowess and jaw-dropping good looks made Rob a star in high school. Out in the real world, his job and his relationships are going nowhere. He’s the guy who women love and leave, not the one who makes them think of forever–until Lauren comes back to town, bringing old feelings and new dreams with her.
Because the only thing more important than figuring out where you truly belong is finding the person you were meant to be with.
Review: I really struggled to get into this one as I just wasn’t much of a fan of the characters. Rob bugged me the most as he is like this kicked puppy that will love on anyone for a pat on the head. It isn’t adorable, it is kind of sad.
Lauren is messed up, but is also the absolute perfect person. I so didn’t by the cat fight into insta BFFs with Rob’s ex. Lauren should be submitted for sainthood she is so perfect outside of her anxiety issues. Again, that isn’t adorable or cute or funny or aww inspiring.
I’m all for broken characters that fight through their issues to become better people, but the way this was played out, that scenario just didn’t seem all that genuine to me. So, not much of a fan on this one.
