Goodreads description--When Lauren Monroe first laid eyes on Michael Delaney back in high school, she had every reason to stay away from him; within minutes of their first encounter, his volatile actions confirmed his notorious reputation. But Lauren saw something in him that caused her to question his bad-boy persona, and against her better judgment, she took a chance. She had no way of knowing that the unlikely friendship they formed would become so important to her.

Or that it would end so painfully.

Eight years later, when Lauren begins her new job at Learn and Grow Day Care, Michael is the last person she expects to see. Refusing to revisit the hurt and confusion of their past, Lauren vows to keep her distance from him. But staying away from Michael proves to be more difficult than she thought, despite her lingering grief and her instincts for self-preservation.

As Lauren and Michael recall the friendship that changed them forever and the events that tore them apart, will they finally be able to heal? Or will the ghosts of Michael’s past prove to be too much to overcome?

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Because I already participate in the In My Mailbox meme (above), I'm just going to use this one as way to recap my week.

So the reason I was MIA last week was because I was on vacation with my husband, sister, and nephew to Disney World for my nephew's birthday! We had a blast! Sorry if I still haven't gotten back to you on comments.

THIS PAST WEEK:

Monday: Review of Making the Cut by Jillian Michaels (3 Stars)

Tuesday: Top 10 Books I Can't Believe I've Never Read

Wednesday: Waiting on Touched

Thursday: Review of Invincible by Sherrilyn Kenyon (4 Stars)

Friday: Mini-Review of Breaking Dawn Part 2

UPCOMING THIS WEEK:

Monday: Review of Covet (The Clann, # 2) by Melissa Darnell

Tuesday: Top 10 Tuesday: Top 10 Books/Authors That I Am Thankful For

  8. How fun to go to Disney! You get a special reward for being a good blog mom and scheduling posts while you were gone. :)

    Hmm. I think I'm going to look into Top Ten Tuesday. This is the only meme I'm doing anymore but that sounds really fun. I loved yours!

    1. We had a blast! I thought about taking that week off, but I just couldn't do it! :) It wasn't so hard to do both! I definitely enjoy Top Ten Tuesday as a meme. Their lists are usually really fun and I've met a lot of people through it! You should try it out. This would be a great week to start! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
