From the back of the book:
Sometimes All A Girl Needs
Kat Cavanaugh was sixteen when she hitchhiked out of Persuasion, West Virginia, and vowed never to return. Who could blame her? She’d just stumbled upon her father’s adulterous affair, found out she was pregnant, got dumped by her boyfriend, and kicked out of her house and school…all in a single afternoon. Twenty years have gone by and Kat’s back – gorgeous, rich, and looking for an apology from everyone who’d turned their backs on her. First on that list is Riley Bohland, the boy who broke her heart before she could tell him about the baby.
Is A Little Persuasion
But Kat didn’t count on Riley having his own axe to grind, or that he’d be just as delicious as he was at sixteen. She also didn’t count on her heart opening at the sight of him. When their anger ignites a passion intense enough to burn through two decades of secrets and lies, Kat must question everything she thought she knew about her past. And what about her future? The only place to find the answers may be in Riley’s arms…
This book was just okay for me. This wasn’t really what I would consider a romance, even though there is a HEA. This book is more about Kat and her coming to terms with her past. The relationship between Kat and Riley is almost instantly back as if they haven’t spent 20 years apart. It just wasn’t very realistic to me. I liked the romance that bloomed between the secondary characters and would have loved more of their story. The other story line in the book has to do with Riley’s ex-fiance and I didn’t really understand why it was in there, it just didn’t add anything to the story for me. I don’t recommend this book if you are looking for a straight romance, this is more about overcoming your past and dealing with mistakes.
