Over the course of one wild road trip, feuding childhood sweethearts get a second chance at love in this charming rom-coma standalone novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Blurred Lines and Good Girl.
When Lucy Hawkins receives a job offer in San Francisco, she cant wait to spread her wings and leave her small Virginia hometown behind. Her close-knit family supports her as best they can, by handing over the keys to a station wagon that's seen better days. The catch? The cross-country trip comes with a traveling companion: her older brothers best friend, aka the guy who took Lucy's virginity hours before breaking her heart.
After spending the past four years and every last dime caring for his sick father, Reece Sullivan will do just about anything to break free of the painful memorieseven if it means a two-week road trip with the one girl whos ever made it past his carefully guarded exterior. But after long days of bickering in the car turn into steamy nights in secluded motel rooms, Reece learns that, when it comes to Lucy, their story is far from over. And this time, they just might have a shot at a happy ending.
Although listed as a title in the Love Unexpectedly Series, all books in the series stand alone.
Lauren Layne is one of my favorite authors and all her books are on auto-buy for me.I don't think I could ever hate or even dislike anything that she writes.
Her writing and characters are so beautiful!And LL does it again with a second chance romance in Love Story!

But just because you haven't talked to someone or haven't seen them in years, doesn't mean that you don't love them anymore right?
Lucy and Reece were such a great couple!I loved seeing them in the present, along with the flashbacks that showed us what happened previously too!The story flowed beautifully and it had me turning the pages, wishing the characters would just get their heads outta their butts soon.
Reece really tested my patience in this one, but I couldn't not love him you know?
In true LL style, he does mess up, but he is human and has his flaws and his reasons.
I loved the constant push and pull between the characters and the angst.The sexual tension between them just leaped out of the pages!And I was rooting for them every second!
This was a perfect book and I urge you to grab it!Especially because its Lauren Layne and its Valentin's Day!There's no way you couldn't love this book!
