One class assignment. One second chance at love. The school player is all in. Now he needs to win back the sweet commitment girl who's forever owned his heart.
Justin Carter has a secret. He's not the total player Fairfield Academy believes him to be. Not really. In fact, he used to be a one-woman guy...and his feelings for her never went away. Too bad he broke her heart three years ago and made sure to ruin any chance she'd ever forgive him.
Peyton Williams is a liar. She pretends to be whole, counting down the days until graduation and helping her parents at the family ranch. But the truth is, she's done everything she can to get over Justin, and salvation is just around the corner. With graduation one short month away, she'll soon break free from the painful memories and start her life fresh. Of course, she has to get through working with him on one last assignment first.
For Justin, nothing ever felt as right as being with Peyton, and now that fate's given him a shot at redemption, he's determined to make the most of it. And for Peyton...well, Justin Carter has always been her kryptonite.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
My first thought about “The Natural History of Us” was that it was cute… especially the big ‘ol Texas feel. It definitely had this Ohio girl wanting to travel to Texas, and that rarely happens, except when I’m watching Fixer Upper.
Peyton and Justin were cute together, even when they weren’t “together”– but there were times where I just wanted to smack both of them– Peyton for how she treated Cade (and Faith sometimes), and Justin for … well, Justin had a lot of smack-able moments. I enjoyed seeing the family backgrounds, but I would love more character development in that aspect! I want to hear more about Faith’s crazy family.
Overall, adorable, cute… I loved the dual perspectives (I’m a sucker for duel perspectives!). My biggest complaint is that Justin’s poetry for sure sounded like a high school boy’s poetry 😉 But I’m sure he can work on that in the future 😉
