Anna Parker’s life disintegrates with one phone call. Her dad’s selling their ritzy New York City condo because her Wall Street banker mom emptied their bank account and ran off with another man. Which means Anna has to drop out of her elite college and move with Dad back to their small Ohio hometown. Anna’s determined to reclaim her life ASAP, so she’ll use the next few months to save money, help Dad get back on his feet, and find and confront her mom.
But Anna doesn’t anticipate things going so wrong. The only job she can get is working as a lunch lady in an elementary school. Their money-pit duplex is falling apart around their feet. And her dad is depressed without her mom, who's proving hard to find.
One bright spot in the chaos is Gavin Metcalf, a kindergarten teacher she dated when they were young teens. With his easy wit and sexy smiles, he makes her forget her stresses—and the fact that her boyfriend Steven back in New York doesn’t know the truth yet about her dire circumstances. When past and present collide, Anna has to decide where her future lies...
I received this book for a honest review! Thanks! :)
I know that the idea of this book is not original, but I wanted something easy to read, a cute story with nice characters, a not so twisted and rollercoaster plot - so I started this.
It was a nice, easy and short read, and kind of a mouth of fresh air. I think that is because of the writing style, you go so fast in the story and you feel the emotions, and you can easily sympathize with the characters. And even if this is a short book it wasn't rushed, or this is my opinion.
For what this book is - a romance, an easy read and with a little bit of moral, because Anna discovers that is not so easy to make money and survive, and leave by yourself, it was good. If you want something fast, short, sweet, then you can read this. If you want something more deep or powerful, then I advise you to try something else.
As I was saying I enjoyed the story and I liked the characters too, Anna and Gavin are nice, not amazing, but good, and they make a nice couple. This books is nice, but just nice, not amazing, special, deep or whatever, is just a summer read, an easy book, something that you can read fast, enjoy and all that.
So, if you want a book like this then grab it.
