HIM by Carey Heywood – @Careylolo

17668976ABOUT:Sarah Miller hasn’t been home in seven years. She thought she could stay away forever. If it wasn’t for her big brother’s wedding, that is. Part of her even feels silly for staying away this long. It’s not like anyone even knew what happened. Well, except for him.
That guy. The one she compared all others to. The one who set the bar so high no other guy after him could even compete. The one who made her feel like anything was possible. The one she thought she would never be good enough for. The one she spent the last seven years trying to forget.
All she needs to do is make it through the next week without running into him.
MARILYN’S REVIEW:“HIM” has all high school romance and remembrance that any love story could have. Sarah meets “HIM” many years ago and can’t believe later in life when reunited, those feeling never truly left. But they have to go backwards into their pasts to remember things that happened good and bad, that got them to a not being together place now. Sarah hasn’t seen Will in years, and is only going to see him because she is in the upcoming wedding of her bother and soon to be wife’s Christine. Will still being very close to Sarah’s brother Brian is also of course part of the wedding party.
Leaving Denver to go back home for the week prior to the wedding festivities she knows there are many chances that they will run into each other, and she sure she can handle this. The story goes back and fourth with Past and Present, and is indicated very well of that by the author, your never wondering exactly what time frame your in. Sarah and Will have been best friends all through High School and though she fond him very attractive, the return feelings are not there, But know one other person know’s Sarah’s like Will does. During School they do end up dating when Will realizes he has more feeling for his “friend” then his girlfriend Jessica. They are blissfully happy and though Sarah’s parents are on board Will’s parents are not, and feel he could do better the Sarah. It’s first love in it’s purest form, sweet and heartfelt. It reminds you that the first one can be the right one, and even if life gets in the way, you can find your way back to ‘HIM”. I was touched by this story and can wait for ‘HER’ – Carey Heywood has a long career ahead I have no doubt, her writing is just straight forward, simple and real life like. It brings you back in time, loved every minute of it.
Happy Ever Afters do happen… She reminds us of this.
