There’s a difference between falling and letting go.

Lauren has a good life: decent grades, great friends, and a boyfriend every girl lusts after. So why is so unhappy?
It takes the arrival of Evan Kirkland for Lauren to figure out the answer: She’s been holding back. She’s been denying herself a bunch of things because staying with her loyal and gorgeous boyfriend, Dave, is the “right” thing to do. After all, who would give up the perfect guy?
But as Dave starts talking more and more about their life together, planning a future Lauren simply can’t see herself in–and as Lauren’s craving for Evan and, moreover, who she is with Evan becomes all more fierce–Lauren realizes she needs to make a choice… before one is made for her.

I finally finished this book. I had read about half-way through then I stuck it back on my shelf to read some ARC’s and hadn’t had a chance to get it back out. I am glad I finished it.

Very nice writing, I would have to say. It seemed I don’t know not, ohh well I don’t know. This was my first book I have read by Elizabeth Scott. I can’t wait to read the rest of her books, Perfect You is on my shelf already.

Lauren was a nice character, a lot like me because I can’t make decisions either.. but I wouldn’t do some of the things she did, I don’t think though. It has tons of family issues throughout the book, but it wasn’t much tear-jerking. Lauren hardly ever talks to her Dad anymore since he’s always busy working. Her mom walked out on them a long time ago when Lauren was six, if I recall right. Her overall character was pretty easy to get into. Lauren and Dave’s relationship is so “perfect” there is no sparks, no nothing really to Lauren. Then there is Evan who just shows back up in town in one of Lauren’s classes who takes Lauren’s heart before she or him even realize. Evan has an air of mystery throughtout the book, you can get learn some more about him while reading.
