“whoa, slow down.  There’s no rush.”- Nathan
“Says you.  I’ve been waiting ten years for this.”- Kelsey
“Only ten?  I’m disappointed.”- Nathan
“Not tonight.  No disappointments allowed tonight.”- Kelsey

Description Via NetGalley:

Book one in The Girls Most Likely to…

Ten years after being voted
Most Likely to Succeed, Kelsey Moore is still living in her hometown, still working in her family's flower shop, and too embarrassed to attend her high school reunion. Only the chance to reconnect with her study buddy—and secret crush—Nathan Barrow tempts her to go.

Nathan isn't sure why he came back for the reunion after spending the past decade working abroad. But when he runs into his former lab partner, Kelsey, he's sure glad he did. The chemistry between them is as potent as ever, and when she offers him a weekend of wild, no-strings-attached sex, Nathan knows he'd be a fool to say no.

Nathan can't be tied to one place for long. But the more time they spend together—
in and out of bed—the more Kelsey wonders if their reunion could become something more permanent. That is, if Nathan is still interested when he finds out she's been less than honest with him about her life since graduation

My Summary:

Kelsey feels like a failure, she has never lived up to everyone’s expectations much less her own.  Upon graduating from high school, this brilliant student could only forego her waiting scholarship for her mother’s security and sanity after her father walked out on them.  Ten years later she’s still tied to her mother and their small flower business. 

Nathan went off to do everything he set out to do after high school.  Everything is going well for him except there’s still no one permanent in his life.   His work brings him to every corner of the world so it is quite difficult to have a relationship.  Then he sees Kelsey.

The reunion goes off without a hitch, especially for Kelsey and Nathan who more than reconnects.  Eventually though Nathan has to know the truth about Kelsey, and when he does, will Kelsey be ready to let him go?

My Review:

Cute and sweet

Obviously with a story like this, there’s barely any complication.  Reading this felt like a ride on a side street, slow and easy, stopping briefly on a hump, then driving full speed past it. 

There’s nothing original nor heart wrenching about this at all.  The characters are likable, the dialogues are ordinary and the writing is capable.  Other than that, it’s nothing you haven’t read before.

Warning:  Some scenes are scorching hot.  So read with caution
