Now, her Dad, Albin, faces double knee replacement surgery and she agrees to take off three months to nurse him through rehabilitation. But she must face her past.
Aurora Rey has created a lovely story about the value of family, friendships and, most importantly, telling the truth.
As Sutton goes home and faces her history with Kate, much is learned about the real meaning of happiness and the compromises we often make to our own detriment.
I loved the sweetness and light of this book, as well as the ending. So much of life is hard these days, You Again lifted my spirits and brought a smile to my face.
Sutton is returning to her home town after spending the last decade away, leaving for college and only returning the once. Her Dad is having knee replacement surgery and she’s convinced him to let her help, despite the fact she knows she’s going to have to see her ex.
Kate, the aforementioned ex, still lives in their hometown, with her daughter Harper and works in the family business.
I actually really liked both Sutton and Kate, and could even understand why Kate’s family were so against Sutton, if you take familial protectiveness into account.
Harper is a great kid character. She’s well written and has a really sparky personality. Many of the conversations she is involved in had me smiling. Kate’s brother Bryce is also worth a mention, as not only is Bryce a great character, but it was nice to have a trans man be included and have a genuine real place in the storyline, rather than it be tokenism.
It’s hard to review this one without giving away any spoilers as so much of this second chance romance is dependent on the how and why of why they broke up in the first place.
In general terms my issue with the conflict centres around the ownership of the issue, more than the issue itself. Much of the blame seems to be placed on one character, and I felt it should have been shared more equally, both the first time and the time depicted in the last quarter of the book.
I really like Rey’s style of writing, and this certainly hasn’t changed my mind on that front. I’ll definitely be looking forward to her next book.
I received an e-ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I loved the characters, Kate and especially Sutton, along with the family member Bryce. It seems the author brought in different spectrums of the gay community - Kate is bi, Sutton lesbian and Bryce transmale which just made me love the diversity the author gave. I will say one thing I kind of struggled with was on how the author described the MC. I am a reader that I like to get a feel how the characters look in my mind's eye, gives me more vividness inside the story-what I didn't understand is that the author didn't really describe Sutton, just endogenous and muscular, that's it-where Kate was described as green eyes, blonde hair, pale, detail in her sundresses, etc. I just struggled with how I though Sutton looked and the stuck with me through the book.
Also, the author mentioned twice about POC, Josh the physical therapist and Clara a provost at Loyola and nothing really beyond that-I had wished maybe for just a something in the storyline around POC but nothing, just seemed odd to me than I thought the author was inferring Sutton was a POC since there was no real description of her but I looked at the cover of the book and nope...headscratcher to me
The story line was sweet, and as the author pointed out not too much angst, I don't want to go into too much of the story due to spoilers, but I enjoyed it. The pace moved along, through there was a lot of repetitiveness' around how they broke up in the first place in high school and who blamed who and who should forgive who. This may be where I waffled on my rating, much of the blame seemed to be put on Sutton by Kate and her family, and well without giving it away, I don't know what a person would do giving what Kate did, I mean really.
Overall, even with what I struggled with above, I enjoyed the book, I pretty much read it in about a day and a half-I kind of hope maybe there is a tag-along book or novella around Bryce, I would like to see him get a happy ending
I received an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, but would have written the same opinion if I had come across this author on my own.
