Claire Miller fell in love with Jake in the third grade. Life was on the fast track to perfect when he finally moved her out of his ‘friend zone’ their senior year. One hot night of reckless passion changed things between them forever. Jake rocked her world, but Claire had plans for her life. Knowing she could never be what he needed, she let him go and has missed him every day since. That was seven years ago. Plenty of time for Jake to fall in love with someone new, get married, and move on.
Jake Walker knew the first time he saw Claire, when he was nine years old, that he wanted to marry her. At seventeen, he let her go. But seven years later, the sight of her hit him like a punch to the gut. She was more beautiful than ever, and every cell in his body demanded that she was ‘The One’. But can he convince Claire?
Alone With You is a scorching hot, contemporary, new adult romance of 57,000 words. This is a stand alone novel with a HEA.
So, this review has been a long time coming. I adored Michele’s first book in the series (Crash and Burn) SO much. So I was super excited to read this.
Initially I was like, cool, another Love You Like A Love Song book and then I saw that it was about the country brother, and I’m kind of an alternative-y/extremely anti-country girl but I wasn’t about to doubt Michele’s ability to spin a truly amazing story.
BOY WAS I RIGHT TO TRUST HER. This story was absolutely beautiful and very sexy. Jake is freaking awesome and hot. He’s a country boy, but he’s affectionate and admirable and so lovable. And Claire is independent yet torn. Their relationship was so sad because it seems there’s no way for things to work out, but there’s gotta be a way, right!?!?!? Fingers crossed. Michele never fails.
I admire that Claire didn’t let herself stay stuck in a life she didn’t want and went and saw the world, but ultimately, she was still missing something. Neither Jake nor Claire are complete without each other, so we get to see that heartbreakingly sincere, messy, love story.
I’m stoked that there will be a book for each of the 4 brothers (I’m pretty sure) and they’re all already on my tbr.
Happy reading! Get you some Jake and Claire in your life.
