We fell in love in a lightning strike, a sudden anomaly in a sea of lost people.
He knew right away, yet I was hesitant. I could have never prepared myself for a love like ours.
No one could.
As a child, I had conjured an amazing story in my mind. It was a story I could retell about a man that would move me like no other; a story about the way we met and how he had swept me off my feet. But, the ending to that fairytale was so far from the reality.
No one will want to hear that story now, but for Grant, I will always tell it.

As I type this, I want you all to know that I am a sloppy mess of snot and tears. Normally i don't lead with my emotions, but i feel its the only way to type this review.
The Mind is book 1.5 in the Reluctant Romantics series. I am ashamed to admit I did not read The Fall (book 1) yet, but it has been on my TBR for a while. (I will be rectifying that as soon as I finish typing this.) It is not necessary to read The Fall before jumping into The Mind but I think it would enhance the experience and explain more about some of the characters. That being said...
Rose is busting her butt to finish this year with a bang and get THE internship with Dr. McGuire. She has worked harder than most and will not allow anything to jeopardize her plans. She has no time for romance after her ex did a number on her.
Football stud body, gorgeous hair, sex god smile, and the eyes...Well, Rose doesn't have time to notice the dream boat who is now sitting right there. She has a future to secure.
A future without ridiculously hot guys saying the most insane things...
A future without random encounters that leave her speechless...
A future, oh hell, who are we kidding, he's smoking and apparently, her brand of crazy.
Enjoy the ride. Their love story is amazingly captivating. I felt more feels in this novella than I do in many full novels. I was so emotional I sent a PM to the author. (P.S. She answered immediately) i love how the writing sweeps you up and carries you along for the ride; and what a ride it is!
I learned (through my sneaky PM) that the next installment is due out soon. It will be titled The Heart. I know I'll be reading it. Will you?
