Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: Short novel
Katy Lewis has it all: a sports reporting job she loves, a great roommate, and two brothers who, while nosy, always have her back. But when Conner Roberts, Katy’s unrequited first crush, suddenly shows up—and shows interest—after nine years, she reverts to a sweaty, panicked sixteen-year-old once more.
And if trying to read Conner’s signals isn’t tough enough, Katy’s heart is sending some mixed messages of its own. When a beautiful blonde coworker starts pursuing Katy’s boss, Dylan Sterling—her longtime mentor and friend—she realizes she may have a problem with that. A reunion with Conner is what she’s dreamed of for so long…so why can’t she stop thinking about Dylan?
For the first time ever, Katy must fact-check her heart. Should she go after the guy she thought she always wanted or see if there’s something more with the one who’s been there all along?

This DNF was unexpected. Normally I like to give a book a fair shake before giving up, but right from the off this one just didn’t work for me. I wanted to like it, but nope, couldn’t.
Maybe it was the first person pov. It’s not that I’m adverse to the idea, I even enjoy it at times, but a romance has to work hard to win me over, because I much prefer getting both sides of a story – or at least more of a wider perspective than being in one person’s head the whole time. I really didn’t like Katy’s style. It jarred me from the first page and I just failed to get into it from there. Too much detail about things I just don’t care about, too much waffling, and somehow I doubted it would improve quickly enough to regain my interest.
Sorry, but this one just wasn’t for me.
Something More Than This is Out Now.
