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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way more than expected September 3, 2014
By Ruby F
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!

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!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great September 8, 2014

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Skip this one August 29, 2014
By Katie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was about two damaged people. I had a hard time reading it, many times considering putting it down. I just don't like to not finish a book once I've started. This book had way too much profanity for me. I usually don't notice it much, but it seemed like every other word was a curse word and it distracted from the story. The characters were pretty well thought out and the story line was complete. It just was not a story I enjoyed, and I would not recommend it to any of my friends. The two main characters were very immature and just trashy in my opinion. A lot of the book was about smoking pot, drug dealing, and hooking up. I'm sure there are people who are into that sort of thing, but not me. It isn't a feel good kind of book, and if you're looking for a clean read this definitely isn't one.

Small Town Girl, Lacey is fresh out of college and has moved home, unsure what to do with the degree in English. One night she is out with a friend in a bar where she feels out of place and runs into a sexy guy on her way out the door.

Clayton is at the bar with friends and runs into Lacey and gives her the shirt off his back and they go to his car for a one night stand. When she asked him what he did he said he was a stripper.

Rural Vermont is a small place and the next day Clay shows up for the seasonal job at her father's antique workshop (where he stripps furniture). Lacey and Clay are attracted but both have issues from their pasts but as they face them together a relationship develops into a sweet love story in a small town in Vermont.

It isn't easy growing up nowadays. Lacie's got a college degree, but who can find a job right out of school in their field of choice these days? She ends up back working in her father's antique store - but so does town bad boy Clay. And it just so happens, these two have a brief but interesting history. I won't give anything away, but if you're anything like me and like stories that have a little bite, you're going to like the way this one unfolds. This isn't your usual NA fare. Yes, there's drama, yes, there's angst, but Lacie and Clay are real, and you root for them the whole way through. Great read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked it but wanted a better ending
I liked the book and how Lacie was able to express herself in the end to Clayton but it left me wanting a little more in the way of response to her pain.
