I love you today. I love this story and this series. The blurb says it can be read as a standalone but I don’t think so. If you don’t read book one you will not understand Austin’s heartbreak. I can tell you his heart is broken but you feel it starting in book one. In this book, book 2, we get to see Austin’s heart break heal as he leans on Casey and learns about the difference in his past, his present and his possible future. Casey is introduced in book one as well. She’s Mavis’ best friend. Casey thinks Mavis choose the wrong brother. But at the same time Casey is glad she’s the one that gets to play ball with Austin. Casey is our main girl in this story. Her character in life is a back seat kind of person. Yes, she is living her life, working, trying to go to school, trying to be happy, trying to be better than her upbringing. Casey lives life but not in a crazy obnoxious way. She’s just wild enough to catch Austin’s eye and even his heart!
I really liked this story. The characters are down to earth and real. The writing keeps me engaged and turning those pages.
Book 3 teaser: Austin and Josh’s sister Lauren gets her turn and her story looks like it may be the story with the most needed tissues. Looking forward to reading it.
