YOURS TO KEEP LAUREN LAYNE
Pro baseball shortstop Carter Ramsey is about to be Citizen magazine’s Man of the Year, but the only title that matters to him is out of reach: World Series MVP. Benched by a recent injury, Carter retreats to his hometown to recover. His ten-year class reunion and a potential reconciliation with the sweetheart he left behind could be perfect distractions. Until another old acquaintance throws Carter a curveball.
Olive Dunn admits that her former high school science partner is still a handsome charmer. But she wasn’t swayed then, and she won’t be swayed now. Because Olive remembers Carter’s little shortcoming: he tends to bail the moment it suits him, without a backward glance. Best to keep her feelings strictly platonic while he’s in town.
Except for the entitled boy she knew is a changed man: solid, reflective, and generous. As they ease back into their familiar friendship, things take a surprising turn, and Carter and Olive must decide if what they have is a passing flirtation or a real shot at love.
|Carter Ramsey is a pro baseball player and is now on the injured list with a broken arm and hurt shoulder. He is talked into going home for his high schools’ ten-year reunion. When he arrives and begins to move into the house he has rented, his neighbor turns out to be his former lab partner from high school Olive Dunn. She really makes this book for me. She is now a high school science teacher.|
Olive begins to take over Carter’s life and he really does not realize it even after he is signing the paperwork for the red truck that he is buying that she picked out. Or when he is chosen to help her with the reunion. As they begin to work together and you see the bond between them you are hoping for a relationship between them. Then his old high school girlfriend shows up and spoils everything. It is in his court if he wants to get Olive back. The rest of the book and the ending is really good and very much worth the read.
