Most people dream about getting out of Sharon, Nebraska, but after three years away, Lauren Barrett is coming home. There are the justifications she gives to everyone else—missing her family, losing her college scholarship. And 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 can’t pinpoint exactly what’s missing until Lauren comes back to town, bringing old feelings and new dreams with her. But he’s the guy that women love and leave—not the one who makes them think of forever.


Though she’s terrified of opening up, Lauren’s ready to take that chance. Because the only thing more important than figuring out where you truly belong is finding the person you were meant to be with.


“Like, seriously, I cannot begin to go into how much I related to Lauren. Between the quarter-life crisis, the social anxiety, the anal retentive tendencies, and the techiness, I felt like she was my twin.” Book Bumblings “There is no second book in a series slump here. As per usual, I thought Ann Aguirre knocked it out of the park….If you’re looking for a female positive New Adult book and are sick of books where all of the females except for the main character are portrayed as harpys, pick this book up. It won’t disappoint.” April @ Good Books & Good Wine “Basically, I enjoyed this book! I love that Aguirre can create imperfect characters without them being broken, beautiful romances without unnecessary drama, and really great New Adult contemporary romance novels without me vomiting in disgust! That's actually a high compliment. Heh.” Alyssa @ The Eater of Books
