Gina & Mike is story of 2 high-school sweethearts. They're made for each other & intend to spend their lives together. Unfortunately Gina gets raped by her teacher and in order not to spoil her boyfriend's career doesn't tell anyone about it. But the mental pressure takes a toll on their relationship.
20 years down the line, she meets Mike again at their school reunion.

To be honest, the book was just okay; nothing great. In the beginning of the book, I felt the narration was a bit immature but considering it was supposed to written by a teenager, I thought this was done purposely. However when the story moves on and even a hotshot attorney uses the similar style. Considering the author is already a Journalist & has her own blog, I expected more. Unless you are a teenager & like very easy read, I wouldn't recommend it.

What an amazing and wonderful novel! Be prepared to experience a plethora of feelings as Buffy Andrews grips your heart within the first few pages. You will become intensely drawn into the lives of Gina and Mike and experience their lives through their points of view. It really is an amazing perspective to be in the mind of each character and feel what they feel, see what they see. The book is riveting and engaging as vivid memories of high-school and first love spill off the pages and into your soul. You will quickly turn the pages in anticipation as their journey unfolds.
It is an experience that you will feel a part of and it will leave a tremendous lasting impression. I loved it! - Sharon Kirchoff

The story started off great. The story of Mike and Gina really got me going. I knew the rape was going to cause a lot of PTSD, and it did, of course. Gina can't stand to be too close any more and she forces the relationship to end. Jump 20 years into the future and the 20 year class reunion. The details about other classmates, that did not seem to add anything to the Gina and Mike story, went on and on. I scanned through most of it looking for anything to progress the story further. It was hard. The story itself was good. The characters were great. Their love story was great. I just felt like the book was 70% filler and only 30% story. Just my opinion.

Spoilers**

I found the first half of the book held my interest better than the second half. It seemed like something was missing when they reunited 20 years later. I guess I was expecting more drama when the heroine confessed what the hero's coach had done but the conversation was almost an afterthought and they seemed to move on from it pretty quickly. Actually really quickly...they were already talking marriage a few days after the reunion.

I think that's why I didn't like the second half as much...the story became kind of rushed and cliched for me. A person can change so much in 20 years and I felt like the hero and heroine were so desperate to recreate what they had in high school that they didn't really make an effort to get to know each other in the present. The heroine hadn't even met the hero's kid but she was already talking about all of them moving in together.

Also, for anyone who doesn't like cheating, the hero makes out with another girl while drunk at a party when they're in high school. The heroine never finds out that he cheated though because the heroine's best friend walks in on him and the other girl and stops things from progressing any further. The BFF promises not to tell the heroine he cheated as long as he never does it again. I understand that the hero was young, immature, and feeling sexually frustrated because the heroine kept rebuffing him and he didn't know why but the BFF pissed me off when she agreed not to tell the heroine. Him kissing the other girl was a stupid, one-time thing but the heroine still deserved to know.

I enjoyed reading 'Gina and Mike', it brought back some memories from high school but mostly the thought that I'm glad there wasn't a lot of conflict and sex going on when I was in High School, or at least I wasn't aware of it. The book was a very easy read and each chapter wanted you to read the next chapter before putting the book down. The sexual content is graphic so I would agree with the 17+ age rating on this book.

This is a perfect vacation read, once you start you won't put it down until you're finished! The story keeps you entertained as the plot jumps between an event that happens in high school and the present day. It will make you laugh and make you cry, and realize the importance off friends and family - and how a secret can change your life. Can't wait for the next book to come out!

This was such a fun book to read. Ok so let me rephrase. It was a sad and trying book because the drama was killing me. It was fun because I love how the author switches POV's between the two main characters often. In any given chapter you can go back and forth a couple of times, I happen to really enjoy it. As for the story it was so exhausting. You know from the blurb what happened to Gina and that it tore her and Mike apart. A good chunk of the beginning of this story takes place in the past showing you what happened. Ok so then we jump ahead 20 years and all I can think is wow that is a lot of wasted time. Mike is this fantastic guy who loved his girl and had no clue what happened. Gina was a loving girlfriend whose life was ripped apart and didn't know how to cope. The entire time I'm reading I wanted to scream TELL HIM but life kept getting in the way. It was a sad book but with a very happy ending. The drama just kept coming and I kept wondering when will my HEA come. I enjoyed reading this story, it had humor and sadness but the story was so well done. It was a quick read, at least for me, and I was sad to see it end. I was very excited that I already had book 2 ready to go.
