Summary

Grayson Cleary left town before graduation day and never looked back. Most people back home pegged him as a dropout. Over time, he's worked to make something of his life and leave his past behind, so when his 10-year reunion comes up, he has no intention of attending. When his best friend begs him to go, Grayson finds himself confronted with a past he'd rather forget and the one woman he's always craved.

Kate St. Dalton had everything when she left her hometown. Not only was she Valedictorian with a full scholarship, but she was also engaged to the boy of her dreams. Then, life threw a wrench in her plans, and she had to find a way to live the new life fate handed her. The last thing she needs is the hot boy from high school returning to town as the sexy man of her dreams.

When the two take a chance and use the reunion week to burn up the sheets, they'll have to remember that it's only for a few nights - not for a lifetime. And decide if what they have is just a fling...or something far more than a mere reunion.

Grayson & Kate

This is my first Carrie Ann Ryan book, and it certainly won't be my last. If she can pack so much into a novella, I can only imagine what treats she has in store for me with a full length novel! This book features Grayson. He goes home to his 10 year reunion at the request of his best friend. He doesn't want to go, facing his past is not something he is looking forward to. But when he sees his high school crush, Kate, things change. Kate was destined for success, but her path took a turn, and now she is struggling. Will this formerly popular fall for the bad boy? It has situations that are true to life and easy to relate to. The characters are easy to become invested in and I loved every minute of their story. Narrated by Gregory D Salinas, Ryan could not have chosen a better voice. He is perfect in these roles, giving all the emotional value and passion to the characters. He is a wonderful storyteller and I always enjoy his narrations.

Emotional love story

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. This may be a short story but it is jam packed full of hope and love. Kate and Grayson had been high school sweethearts but then their lives took different paths. They are given a second chance and we learn so much more about their previous hardships. Carrie has written an emotional and heart lifting story. It's one of those stories that you just want to know so much more about the characters. Gregory Salinas does an outstanding job of portraying the emotions and personalities of these characters. He brings the author's words to life. I highly recommend this Audible book.

Kate and Grayson

This is a short listen with a lot of meat to the story in my opinion. I enjoyed that the characters had history and not a romance history but the want did not diminish over time for there to be a romance between them. Her ex was a douche canoe. I would have to slap him at some point or something. Gregory Salinas is one of my favs and does a great job with this one!

Reunited again

Could Kate's ex Jason be more of a D bag- NO!!! I wanted to throttle him for being alive. Kate's had her share of mistakes, but Grayson wasn't one of them! I loved their connection and interactions. Both mc had integrity and strength of character that I admired. Looking forward to more. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review. The narrator's voice and expressions added to my enjoyment of this story. Great job. Love, loved the epilogue!!!

Nice novella

Loved Grayson and Kate’s story. I’m glad the found each other at their high school reunion. They both went through a lot of crap to find their HEA. Hope to catch up with them in other books.

Love second chance romance

Kate and Grayson meet up at their high school reunion and Sparks fly. After Kate’s marriage ends and her career goes in the toilet she has to face a class reunion. Bad boy Grayson and Kate make a great couple. The audiobook is great and the narration is excellent
