There are two sides to every breakup.

This is Jordan and Courtney, totally in love. Sure, they were an unlikely high school couple. But they clicked; it worked. They're even going to the same college, and driving cross-country together for orientation.

Then Jordan dumps Courtney -- for a girl he met on the Internet.

It's too late to change plans, so the road trip is on. Courtney's heartbroken, but figures she can tough it out for a few days. La la la -- this is Courtney pretending not to care.

But in a strange twist, Jordan cares. A lot.

Turns out, he's got a secret or two that he's not telling Courtney. And it has everything to do with why they broke up, why they can't get back together, and how, in spite of it all, this couple is destined for each other.

My Review

This was a fun, cute book to read! I started it Friday morning and finished it Friday night. It was short and sweet, just how I like my romance novels! I really loved how the story flipped from Jordan to Courtney, and from the present to the past. I thought it was a unique way of portraying the story. If it had just been in the present, and they talked about the past, I don't think it would have been that good. I loved reading about Jordan and Courtney's relationship in the past, and how that affected their present time together. They both struggled with the breakup, and still very much want to be together. But neither knows how the other feels until their road trip puts them to the test. Again, this was a short and sweet read; I would recommend it :)
