Author: Cora Brent
Rating: 3.5 stars
I read this when it was a short story as part of an anthology. However it has since been updated and expanded into a full length novel.
Cess and Bran went to school together but never really connected until school was over. Bran was the football hero of the small town of Hickeyville and Cess is the quiet girl working at the diner after her father ran off and spent her college money.
Following a whirlwind romance they get married at 18, but not everything is roses. Following a misunderstanding they separate only to run into each other seven years later at University.
However, I didn’t like this version as much as the novella and was left a little disappointed.
