Veer (Clayton Falls, #2)
by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Publishing Date: November 29th 2012
Only when you let go can you learn to live.
Between the death of her mother and pushing through law school without her best friend, it's been a tough year for Becca. Needing a break from Boston, she moves to a tiny coastal North Carolina town for a relaxing summer. After bumping heads repeatedly with a local cop, she realizes her summer will be anything but quiet.
Three years after a career ending injury ruins his chance to play Major League Baseball, Gavin has a distrust of northerners and lately girls in general. He wants nothing to do with a girl who is only in town for the summer.
When the two give in to their impossible attraction, they realize that they may just have found the key to freeing themselves from the ghosts of their pasts.
Veer is the second book in Clyton Falls series and I liked it more than I liked the first one, Derailed, but mostly because I really liked Gavin in the first book and was really excited to read his story.
I kinda felt sorry for him in Derailed when Molly picked Ben over him, and when I learned what he had to go through in his past, I felt even more sorry. I just wanted to give him one big bear hug!
The story starts when Molly's friend from Boston, Becca, comes into Clayton Falls for summer. She meets Gavin really quickly but they don't hit it off. They're constantly bickering, arguing and Gavin acts a lot like a jerk in the beginning. He has some fears he can't get over that easiliy which results with him pushing Becca away even though they like each other. After one big mistake, he realises what he lost and trys to make up for it and earn her trust.
The relationship between Becca and Gavin builds up slowly. They are both fighting their fears and they are affraid to jump into relationship. There is a lot of tension in the beginning and a lot of sweet moments later in the book, which makes the romance nearly perfect.
What I really liked in this book is that there was a lot of Jake, Ben's brother. I loved his chatacter in Derailed mostly because he was an ass. In Veer, we see glimpses of his sweet and caring side. I can't wait for the third book to see his story and to really get to know his character.
If you haven't already checked out Clayton Falls series, and you like contemporary romance you should really try Derailed and Veer.
