First comes love, then comes marriage. . .
Or that was Gracie’s plan, anyway, at the ripe old age of fourteen. She loved eighteen-year-old heartthrob Riley with a desperation that made her a town legend. Even now that she’s all grown up, the locals in sleepy Los Lobos won’t let her forget her youthful crush. . . .but it’s not as easy as it looks.
And how can she, when she’s face-to-face with Riley at every turn? The onetime bad boy has come back to town seeking respectability-but the sparks that fly between them are anything but respectable! Gracie’s determined to keep her distance, but when someone sets out to ruin both their reputations, the two discover that first love is sometimes better the second time around.
REVIEW: I have been on a Susan Mallery kick lately and have been reading all her of books that I can find at the library. Some I have liked and others I haven’t this is one that I LOVED.
There was just something about Gracie and Riley, and the cast of characters that surround them. I really enjoyed how both Gracie and Riley were able to look back on the past and see it for what it was. I really felt bad for the way that Gracie’s family treated her, but was happy that she had Riley to lean on.
I very rarely give a book a 5 but I have to because this book is going into my must buy pile and has become one that I will probably read and reread.
This book gets a 5 out of 5
