finished reading

The characters are well developed.  And there's a dual timeline narrative of when Annika and Jonathan meet in college and reconnect ten years later.  There's a sweetness to their romance and I was rooting for them.  Their growth when they reconnect was evident and I wanted a happy ever after.  It's poignant and was about friendship and love.  Overall, I laughed and I cried and I will look for more by this author.

From the publisher:
What if you had a second chance at first love?

Annika Rose likes being alone.

She feels lost in social situations, saying the wrong thing or acting the wrong way. She just can't read people. She prefers the quiet solitude of books or playing chess to being around others. Apart from Jonathan. She liked being around him, but she hasn't seen him for ten years. Until now that is. And she's not sure he'll want to see her again after what happened all those years ago.

Annika Rose likes being alone.

Except that, actually, she doesn't like being alone at all.
