I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Lola West is the queen of sweet, intelligent, silly, sexy romance! She has a Ph.D. in women’s studies and a flair for the dramatic. She likes cotton candy, astronomy, kitten heels, and small-town hunks. Lola is a pen name. The mind behind Lola is just like you – an everyday person living a regular life, happy to daydream about sexy men and the sassy women they love. LONG LIVE THE BOOK BOYFRIEND!
“Maybe I always wanted him.”
Natalie has flourished from the shy girl she used to be. After planning her 10-year high school reunion and knowing it would blow everyone’s minds, the one aspect she is not ready for is Carter. Her first kiss. Also, her bully. Carter is coming home for the reunion, and he’s looking forward to teasing Natalie. He isn’t sure why, but he feels like he has to do anything to get her attention.
I love Lola’s novellas. She can create such a dynamic world in a few pages, and it’s simply delicious.
I loved Natalie; organized, type A, and polite. But also able to maintain her beloved vehicle. She has spunk and charisma that makes her memorable.
Carter starts as your typical jock. He is slightly cocky, with a touch of arrogance, but secretly insecure and desperate to make his feelings known.
This was very cute. I enjoyed the reunion scenes and how Natalie and Carter found their resolution. Lola writes a love story that is so well developed, and she leaves us wanting more.
