Laney left her hometown for medical school and found her true calling, but knew something very precious behind... Her heart, to Kyle Nixon, in her hometown of Wardham. Laney is now a renowned facial reconstruction surgeon, esp. for cleft palette on kids... something a small town could not provide. Laney finally took a brief vacation home, and very quickly Kyle was there, and they picked up where they left off... But she's only back for one week... and Kyle... what will he choose this time?
Sweet, and just slightly angst-y. You know he'll make the "right" choice this time. Thus, nothing too deep.
What Once Was Perfect was a good read. It was hot and continued my theme of holiday stories where the people work through whatever issues and finally get together. The difference was this time they had dated in the past. They both were in love, but they both ended up broken hearted.
Laney and Kyle grew up in the same town and fell in love in college. They have obvious chemistry and they both wanted to be together forever, but Kyle messed that up. It has been twelve years since they broke up, since Laney left for graduate school broken hearted. She has not seen Kyle since then and really she has not let anyone else in. She doesn't want to fall in love again. It hurts too much. She just wants to work and coast through life. She just doesn't want to move on.
Kyle didn't want to wait for Laney to finish her graduate schooling. He didn't want to spend a year apart, and that ended things between them. For a long time he considered Laney the girl who broke his heart when she did not come back after she finished school. It is not until her family sets him straight that he realizes he is not the only one suffering. He has tried to move on, tried to have a life with someone else, but it just doesn't work out. He needs closure with Laney and when she comes home for Christmas he is hoping they might be able to get that.
When Laney first sees Kyle she is not ready for all that she feels. She is still attracted to him, but she can't do anything more. Their mutual attraction is hot! They still go well together, and Kyle definitely wants more. Kyles wants Laney forever if he can just find a way to convince her to give him another chance and figure out how to make it work. After all she does live a good ways away and they don't want a long distance thing.
While I liked both of them together, Kyle can be a bit..he just doesn't think about what he says and how that will come off to Laney. He is not really stupid, but he makes some stupid decisions. I didn't love him, but I did want Laney to be happy so it worked. It was still a good read and I enjoyed watching the two of them work through everything that happened and start a new.
This review was originally posted to Jen in Bookland
Laney was heading back to Canada for her Christmas getaway. She was going to see her family. The only thing she wasn't looking forward to was the small town gossip. Yup, she was still the center of it after all these years... Laney had her heart broken by her high school sweetheart. now till this day she will never have a boyfriend. she only has sexual occasions with no strings attached. For some reason she cannot love. She just had to let her co-worker down. By down I mean break up. Their casual sex thing wasn't fair to him and she saved him a favor.
Now Laney's mother and sister are trying to get Laney to see her ex boyfriend Kyle. They haven't spoken to each other since the break up. they have a lot they need to work out so they can move on. Her mother sets up a great scheme to get the ball rolling. Kyle on the other hand has had relationships, but they never last because they all say he is still not over her. Kyle has no problem trying to work things out because he wants his life back.
Both will realize after one meeting that they are meant to be. Laney wants to be with him, but she lives far away and doesn't want babies and to be tied down. Kyle wants all of this and will try everything he can to convince her otherwise. these two will have great sex and also drama.
this is like a true fairy tale ending
