The guy she wants…

Growing up on the coast of Maine with a revolving door of foster siblings, Caitlyn Michaud spent one intense and passionate year falling in love with her foster brother, Heath. Then he left without a word. The betrayal devastated Caitlyn and made her vow to forget the compelling bad boy. But forgetting his sensual touch and their deep all-consuming friendship is easier said than done.

Isn’t the guy she needs…

Determined to move on, in college Caitlyn has risen above her small town impoverished roots and has joined a sorority, reinvented her appearance, and landed the right boyfriend. Pre-law major and frat president, Ethan, is thoughtful and always laughing, and he makes her feel happy, calm. He also gives her the social acceptance she craves.

But the perfect world she tried so hard to attain is ripped apart when Heath appears one night out of nowhere. Caitlyn remembers all the reasons why she loves him, even if they don’t make sense to anyone but her. Out of the military, Heath is as brooding and intense as ever, and he is determined not only to win her back, but to exact revenge on everyone who kept him from her…

And when one love allows her to breathe, but the other feels as essential to her life as air, how does she choose between them?

My Thoughts
This book was okay for me. I mean it was kind of predictable but a so so read nevertheless. Caitlyn was living a good life in school; she has a great boyfriend and recently got engaged when her past comes back and threatens to change everything she has worked hard for. Heath her “foster brother” comes back after years away and decides he wants back in her life. You see they had something briefly but he left without a word and now wants to be a part of her life again.

Personally I didn’t get them as a couple. The whole foster brother thing threw me off, it was just weird. I didn’t get the chemistry at all, maybe it was just me but this wasn’t what I thought it would be.

The storyline is alright but maybe others will like it more than I did. It is a quick read so if anyone wants to check it out it won’t take up much time.
