Overview

After years of hard partying, movie star Randall Rowe returns to his small hometown to get his life back together. Yet he is distracted by sassy Kayla Denton, the runaway he'd once helped. He tries to ignore her grown-up looks, but her headstrong ways keep needling his heart.

Likewise, now a responsible schoolteacher, Kayla wants nothing to do with Randall despite her secret crush. She's already been abandoned by one man and refuses to ever feel so vulnerable again. But as circumstances force her closer to the tortured playboy, she starts to realize underneath his devil-may-care persona lies more darkness and pain than she had imagined. With their undeniable chemistry, her resolve will be put to the ultimate test to chance her heart on a love greater than she has ever known... or safe guard it at all costs.

This was a wonderful read! From beginning to end the characters were loveable and relateable. The author allows the characters to control the story beautifully. This was a romantic , charming, and down-to-earth love story that makes you believe in the possibilties of love. Bravo Tiphanie Thomas!!!

4.5 Stars I am shocked that this is a debut from this author. It was such an entertaining and thoroughly satisfying read from the first to last page. Randall looked out for Kayla when meeting her as a runaway teenager, and of course she has a crush on him that developed later into much more years later when Randall now see's her as a woman. Kayla was extremely proud, and would not take gifts from Randall. Often times I wanted to shake her and say just take the darn gifts! Of course they had their share of conflict, but their love was strong enough in the end to overcome it all. If you buy this book dedicate at least six straight hours to reading it because you will not want to put it down. I can't wait to read more about the people in Summerdale.

Loved the story! Though near the end I was just ready for it to be done. I felt that some of the drama Kayla brought to her situation was uneccasary to the story line. Plus she was expecting Randall to know her mind and expectations, when she obviously did't know herself. I like stories to make sense, and have me feel like I haven't wasted hours of my time reading to get to know and understand the people in the story. I like the comforting feeling left once I've finished the story. It was diffused for me by the time I'd completed the book.

When I was about a fourth of the way into the book, I knew I was going to be pleasantly surprised and I was. I LOVED this book. The author wrote such great complex and real characters that I felt what they did as I read along. Kayla was a totally normal person, with no severe issues or over-dramatics which you see a lot in books. And Randall was probably kind of mellow for a movie star, but with the way he was raised it was understandable. I simply adored this book, and the story that unfolded over time. The realization that you love someone, and then the pain of being scared and losing that feeling. What really pulled at me was the grief of being heartbroken. We've all been there and the author again totally captured the feeling to a tee. Even the minor characters were fun, and very vital to the main characters. And the moral of the story is that love can change you, if you want to change. Brandi, The One Hundred Romances Project

A great romance book. I found the characters likable and wanted to see them end up together and happy. The book was romantic and cute without being cheesy.

I believe I read a totally different book than what is described in the ratings that received 5 and 4 stars. I purchased this book off of those reviews and I was very disappointed. I think it started off at a good pace but I soon got bored with it and started skipping 50 pages at a time. Kayla was the most unsettled character and I really got tired of her constant rants about the same things over and over. I also felt uneasy about the references to God, the church, and the minister that finished raising Kayla but Kayla and Randall were have premarital relations while living together. I just felt like the story was all over th place, not really sticking to one position or the other consistently. Sorry but it just wasn't good for me.
