THE PERFECT COUPLE
✮✮✮ 4 STARS ✮✮✮
The perfect couple.
Nicole Laramie and Chase Pennington would forever be called that in their home town of Rider Springs. Chase’s grandmother, Evelyn, thought her neighbors’ only daughter and her grandson were made for each other ever since the two of them were kids.
When Chase climbed a tree, Nicole climbed it higher.
When Nicole fell from her ten-speed and skinned her knee, Chase carried her home.
And when Chase took the field for Little League, Nicole cheered the loudest.
Until they were strangers.
While Chase climbed the social ladder in high school, Nicole climbed the academic one. Two best friends became enemies. And when the senior class voted them MOST PERFECT COUPLE in the yearbook, it was meant as a joke.
Only Evelyn, she never thought it was funny. She thought it was fate. And she was willing to wait 10 years just to prove she was right.
Everyone who knows me, knows that I love Ginger Scott. She has this way of sucking you into a story and you don’t want to stop until you’re done. What we have here is a novella with a little less than 60 pages. It’s a super quick fix if you’re in need of a comfort read.
Ginger is amazing at characterization. Within a couple of pages you know exactly who the characters are. Nicole and Chase are wonderfully and surprisingly deep characters. Surprisingly because with that page count you can’t really get into much detail.
This story probably worked so well because the main characters were childhood friends who were out of each other’s lives when the reality of growing up and being an adult happened. Both of them are big enough to admit that they were both at fault.
I loved this little story. It was exactly what I needed after a heavy read.
