Gideon and Georgia's storyline was familiar but not.

Nerd grown up into a gorgeous man. Popular girl grown up into, well, she doesn't know. Which was fine. I liked that she was kinda floundering. For all the plans she had, it was nice to see her struggle to find her place now that those plans have fallen through. Her plan to get an old boyfriend to notice her again wasn't all that brilliant but it was understandable, you know? After all those years, did they still have that spark?

Fortunately, I didn't care to know because the heat between Georgia and Gideon was hot enough to engulf that silly thought.

Mind you, Georgia was not nice to Gideon in high school. The reason behind her behavior was surprising and I wanted to go back in time and make it so she didn't have to give in to that kind of behavior.

The present was definitely redemptive for her. Sleeping with Gideon wasn't a hardship she'd ever regret. It was an experience that opened her eyes to what she was missing, to what she needed to feel whole and complete and found.

What I liked the most was this feeling, from both characters, of insecurity. Odd for Gideon given his success and confidence. Not so odd for Georgia given the stalemate she exists in. But it was...eye opening how high school insecurities can carry into present day.

This wasn't just about hooking up with the wrong guy (who turns out to be the right guy) or making a deal of a century with a man you would never consider a friend otherwise. This wasn't so much about sex either, although sex did give them the window they needed to get to know one another, to really get to know each other and finally move past those insecurities.

I enjoyed this story. That was surprising, and I'm glad I was able to read this too. Gideon and Georgia aren't characters I'm likely to forget any time soon. The heated arguments, the passionate sex, the need for completion without really knowing how it would happen. All of that came to a head when they realized how much better they were together, how their insecurities melted in the wake of someone who care for you
