Most people dream about getting out of Sharon, Nebraska, but after three years away, Lauren Barrett is coming home. She has her reasons--missing her family, losing her college scholarship. But then there's the reason Lauren can't admit to anyone: Rob Conrad, her best friend's older brother. Football prowess and jaw-dropping good looks made Rob a star in high school. Out in the real world, his job and his relationships are going nowhere. He's the guy who women love and leave, not the one who makes them think of forever--until Lauren comes back to town, bringing old feelings and new dreams with her. Because the only thing more important than figuring out where you truly belong is finding the person you were meant to be with.

28/8 - What is it with modern romances being told from the first person POV?! This is the third romance I've read this month told in the first person, and I would say generally, I'm not a fan. One was okay, one was 'not offensive' and I would describe this one as not good (not the whole book, specifically the first person POV). I did not like Lauren or her internal monologue. She frequently reminds us that she's been in love with Rob since before she knew what her feelings meant, but I don't feel any of that emotion in her 'voice'. She says the words, but to me she comes across like a wooden actor simply repeating the words on the script. Same goes for Rob, but it's possibly worse because of the Lauren POV. We hear what she says and thinks but obviously we can't hear what Rob thinks. We can only hear what he says and have to take it for granted that he's speaking from the heart and telling the truth. And since he's not particularly demonstrative I just didn't feel the love from him either. There is no visible love in this book.

The only thing I did like about this book was Lauren's relationship with Rob's ex-girlfriend, Avery. I liked the way they were able to (mostly) avoid the usual female rivals relationship and actually become friends. But that was only a small part of the book and it certainly couldn't make up for a lacklustre depiction of the hero and heroine's love for each other. I would probably 'impulse borrow' either of the other two books in the series (pick them up without realising that I'd read a book from the series and not enjoyed it), but I definitely won't be searching them out or putting them on hold.
