This week I’m waiting for The Last Time We Were Us by Leah Konen

Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance

last-time-we-were-us_rev-snap.jpgA passionate summer love story about a girl, her childhood best friend recently released from juvie, and the small-town lies that have kept them apart. A teen romance debut with a dark edge.

Liz Grant is about to have the summer of her life. She and her friend MacKenzie are getting invited to all the best parties, and with any luck, Innis Taylor, the most gorgeous guy in Bonneville, will be her boyfriend before the Fourth of July.

Local teen convict released early.

Jason Sullivan wasn’t supposed to come back from juvie. A million years ago, he was her best friend, but that was before he ditched her for a different crowd. Before he attacked Innis’s older brother, leaving Skip’s face burned and their town in shock.

“Everything is not what you think.”

Liz always found it hard to believe what they said about Jason, but all of Bonneville thinks he’s dangerous. If word gets out she’s seeing him, she could lose everything. But what if there’s more to that horrible night than she knows? And how many more people will get hurt when the truth finally comes out?

“You’re the one person who believes in me.”

Leah Konen’s southern romance swelters with passion as it explores the devastating crush of lies, the delicate balance of power and perception, and one girl’s journey to find herself while uncovering the secrets of so many others.

A little back story: Last week, Ms. Leah Konen followed me on Twitter and that’s how I knew about her book. I checked it out on Goodreads and immediately added it to my tbr because duh! I fell in love with the cover and the blurb so I tweeted her something along the lines of “I need this book!” She saw it! Which means it was too late for me to notice I had a typo. I was so embarrassed that I deleted the tweet!

Anyway, it’s been awhile since the last time I read a contemporary romance. I’ve just been not up for it, but when I saw this book I knew that I needed it. I’m really looking forward to this one because, as much as I don’t want to admit, I’m a sucker for bad boiz. I NEED THIS BOOK! 

In other news, look at that cover. And that font! Holy meatballs. Please be mine.

Are you adding it to your tbr? Let me know!
