Charlotte Windham, a nerdy high school prodigy who tutored classmates to earn money for college, escapes her geeky past to become a celebrated novelist. During a chance encounter at a Los Angeles restaurant 15 years after high school, she reconnects with her secret crush, Garrett Stephens, the popular star athlete and teen heart breaker. Garrett, still leaving broken hearts in his wake, is now a successful professional golfer who recently suffered a possible career-ending shoulder injury. As he and Charlotte spend time together, developing a friendship based on mutual respect and comfortable companionship, can Charlotte forgive the past and can Garrett reform his lothario ways for a chance at love?

The One I Fell In Love With

Can I rate this in hearts? It's so cute.

It has been far too long since I read anything like it and it was like falling in love again.
Or for the first time.

I absolutely loved the innocence of it; with most books I'm yelling "Just get together already!" pretty early on, but with this it was a beautiful build up with great anticipation.

I loved the story, I loved the characters, I just loved everything about it so much. I can't remember the last time a book left me with such a sense of content satisfaction. It's the perfect little love story.

1 Month Later (Exactly)


I am so glad I wrote all that after I finished reading it, because I don't know if I would be able to say any of it now; it truly was what I was feeling in that moment.
And what got it to number two on this list.

This book really makes me hate the reading slump I went through over the summer because if it weren't for that slump I would have read it much sooner. And I probably wouldn't have been freaking out about the whole not being able to read thing. (It was turning into a scary couple of months there.)

Thankfully this book reminded me how wonderful it is to fall in love with not only a book, but it's character and the entire idea of it all.
