Before: Reena Montero has loved Sawyer LeGrande for as long as she can remember: as natural as breathing, as endless as time. But he’s never seemed to notice that Reena even exists…until one day, impossibly, he does. Reena and Sawyer fall in messy, complicated love. But then Sawyer disappears from their humid Florida town without a word, leaving a devastated—and pregnant—Reena behind.

After: Almost three years have passed, and there’s a new love in Reena’s life: her daughter, Hannah. Reena’s gotten used to being without Sawyer, and she’s finally getting the hang of this strange, unexpected life. But just as swiftly and suddenly as he disappeared, Sawyer turns up again. Reena doesn’t want anything to do with him, though she’d be lying if she said Sawyer’s being back wasn’t stirring something in her. After everything that’s happened, can Reena really let herself love Sawyer LeGrande again?

In this breathtaking debut, Katie Cotugno weaves together the story of one couple falling in love—twice.

Why I’m waiting?
To be honest, I’m not a big fan of books like this one – where the guy “disappears” from town, having no idea that he’s leaving behind a pregnant girlfriend. It’s a tired and predictable plot. I’m hoping that the plot will go in a different, surprising direction than my expectations. That said, I pick this book for “Waiting On” because I love the cover. It’s very simple and sweet. 

What books are you waiting for on this Wednesday?

  1. I really like this simple cover, too. I agree that the whole “left town” concept can be trite, but I’m looking forward to seeing how she handles them falling in love twice. Great pick!

    I’m looking forward to reviews of this one to find out if it transcends the cliche plot summary or if that is all there is to it.
