Book Description

In a small town, everyone knows your damage.

Just out of college, millennial Lacie couldn't seem to get her life started. With a degree in English, she was the pride of the family, until she came back home to work at the family antique store. She had started and stopped a novel a half dozen times, but just couldn't seem to make any serious headway on it. She just felt like she was treading water.

That was until she met Clay.

When she met Clay at a bar, she never expected to end up in his car. She never expected to have a one-night stand with him. And she certainly never expected him to start work at her father's antique store the next day.

Clay also seemed to be going nowhere fast, but Lacie felt herself begin to fall for him. What started as a simple fling began to turn into something so much more. But sometimes, those one-night stands come back to bite you, and nothing ever stays a secret in a small town...

I'm a bit lazy and don't tend to write reviews, but Im putting this one in to balance out the one star. Not that I don't respect the one star review - I do - we all like different things... That review was correct regarding the language etc, but I don't really mind that {sorry) I liked the story line, it had originality - I liked that the people in the story were 'flawed'. This wasn't quite the same formula of so many of the new adult books, it was witty at times and well grounded.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great September 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hope I didn't pay for this book because I wasted my money. This book just jumped around too much for me. I had to keep going back to my dictionary for some of the drug terms and the book kept losing me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way more than expected September 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This one took me by surprise. Maybe it was the nice cover and the nice title and the subtitle describing it as a new adult romance. I expected a sweet little story, a *nice* story with a happy ending counterbalanced by plenty of early adulthood angst.

What I got was way more than this. This is no rose-tinted view of what it's like to be young and uncertain and trying to find your place in life, it's a gripping, heart-rending story about *real* people. Lacie is a young woman who's really struggling: she doesn't know if her writing will ever work out, she's reliant on a job in her father's shop, and she really doesn't know where her life is heading. The only thing going for Clay is that he's seriously hot, but like Lacie he's drifting. When the two hook up, you really fear for them that they're just going to end up wasting their lives, smoking too much dope, and it will all end in fighting and tears. For me, that was a really compelling set-up, and I raced through the story just to see how the two of them would end up.

Maybe not an easy read in places, because of the intensity of emotions, but this is one powerful, gripping and rewarding romantic read!

2.0 out of 5 stars this one was confusing to me February 12, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really hate to write this because I didn't finish the book. I just couldn't waste that amount of time. I have to wonder if I am just too old to appreciate the young and stupid and that is where these characters seemed to be going to me. I am just not impressed to have the heroine "high" in college, or going out on a binge, etc. Just stupid behavior to me. Maybe immature but still stupid. I couldn't keep up with what was going on. I can see that some that gave high starts were a bit confused as well.

I appreciate that the author spent her time creating this book. It just wasn't for me for whatever reasons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jessica Pine is one of my new favorite authors October 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
In Small Town Girl, we see life from the perspective of a post-graduate English major, that is still trying to figure out her life. A night out turns into an adventure for our heroine as she learns that one night stands have a way of staying around. We also meet the other party in this fling turned 'complicated'. He's trying to keep and gain Lacie's attention all the while avoiding being on the business end of motorcycle chain.

I really, really liked this story! It was hilarious! And thrilling, tear jerking, romantic in that off beat kind of a way; just plain amazing! I literally laughed out loud through most of the book. I loved the development of the characters and storyline. I like how the author stayed on task but, also showed us how random life can be. This wasn't some cut and dry cookie cutter romance with cheesy covers and formulated sex scenes. It felt real. Like something that might have happened to someone in really life with crazy stoner friends and a mixed up past. I even like how she developed Clayton. He wasn't some heroic knight with a permanent tan and stacks of muscles. He was a regular dude with a sarcasm that just made me like him even the more.

I really enjoyed this and totally recommend it to anyone. I was reluctant to read it at first but I'm glad I did. I was afraid I'd get a story filled with unrealistic timelines and leading men that don't exist in real life. Boy was I, blissfully, wrong. Truly a MUST READ!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable! December 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Reviewer: Donna
Rating: 3.5 Stars

It was a light, enjoyable read. The story of Clayton and Lacie. Lacie is an English major who is working in her dads shop in a small town, Vermont where she grew up. She ends up having a one night stand with Clayton without even asking him his name and is dumbfounded when he turns up at her dad's shop for an interview for a job. When he gets the job, Lacie's one night stand comes back to haunt her.

They are really cute together but at times i was a bit like Clayton as i didn't know half the time what Lacie was on about. She seemed to talk in riddles about everything. I found the book to drag on in places but other times, the book seemed to jump forward too much that i got confused as to what was happening. At times i found to find the substance behind the story or the moral of the story, so to speak. When i got to about 60% through the book, i begun to enjoy it a bit more as i felt there was more going on. I still had no idea what Lacie was going on about half the time but when a "situation" happens that makes her life take a different turn, i was intrigued to see what was going to happen. It was an enjoyable read to some extent and a light and breezy story.
