Anna Parker’s life disintegrates with one phone call. Her dad’s selling their ritzy New York City condo because her Wall Street banker mom emptied their bank account and ran off with another man. Which means Anna has to drop out of her elite college and move with Dad back to their small Ohio hometown. Anna’s determined to reclaim her life ASAP, so she’ll use the next few months to save money, help Dad get back on his feet, and find and confront her mom.
But Anna doesn’t anticipate things going so wrong. The only job she can get is working as a lunch lady in an elementary school. Their money-pit duplex is falling apart around their feet. And her dad is depressed without her mom, who’s proving hard to find.
One bright spot in the chaos is Gavin Metcalf, a kindergarten teacher she dated when they were young teens. With his easy wit and sexy smiles, he makes her forget her stresses—and the fact that her boyfriend Steven back in New York doesn’t know the truth yet about her dire circumstances. When past and present collide, Anna has to decide where her future lies…

If you had everything in life , and suddenly it's taken away , What do you do?
It was a very easy story to read, you can take 1 to 2 days reading, depending on your time. It is smooth and goes on the road which is what Anna will do to support herself and her father afloat on your situation. Amid this chaos in the change of life , she encounters Gavin and if his life was about to change, with Gavin involved, will take more thought.
As I said , the story is cute , sweet and romantic , it can be easy to enjoy, give your time and relax with this story, has good supporting characters , and if there is a close second book , I hope you will take more force. The main characters are well defined and the intensity between the two it's very clear.
No doubt Anna is a character you can enjoy and can become one of your favorites and Gavin is a love , a very good shock for Anna , is one of the things I liked about the story , the interaction of this pair.
While reading is short and may have some holes that make you wonder sometimes , the support would have as threads to weave this story or at least 2 other books more .
