In a Class By Itself by Sandra Brown
Publisher: Bantam Books
Publishing Date: 2000 (first published in 1984)
Dani Quinn knew Logan Webster would be at her high school reunion. Yet she had come in order to prove to herself that she was not afraid to see him again. Her departure years before from both Logan and the small Texas town where they were sweethearts had been abrupt, painful, and not of her choosing. Worst of all, she'd never had the chance to tell Logal the truth of why she had to leave. Now she would not only have a chance to explain, but to ask him a favor.
Handsome, charming, and dangerously charismatic, Logan exudes all the power and confidence of a self-made success. He listens as Dani describes her work for a charitable foundation and expresses her hope that he will donate one of his properties for a much-needed summer camp. Logan agrees, but with one shocking proviso: that Dani fulfill the intimate promise she made to him years ago. It is meant to be a coldhearted business transaction... but this time when Dani is once again compelled to leave without an explanation, nothing can keep Logan from following.
I love Sandra Brown's novels. She was one of the first adult authors that I started reading back in middle and high school, and I haven't left her since. Though romance novels are not my go-to anymore, I still love going back to them when I need a break from other serious novels. Logan is definitely a charismatic character that you can't help but to like. When he finds out the real reason Dani's work means so much to her, it solidifies their relationship that much more. Dani is a cute character (not the word I'm looking for, but you get it haha). She tries so hard to resist Logan, but can't stop loving him. However, she doesn't want to reveal her secret to anyone, not even him.
One thing I don't like: the title of the book. Yes, I understand they were high school sweethearts, but I don't think the title fits the book. Maybe that doesn't make sense, but I just don't really like it.
