Review: As Long As You Love Me by Ann Aguirre
Most people dream about getting out of Sharon, Nebraska, but after three years away, Lauren Barrett is coming home. She has her reasons—missing her family, losing her college scholarship. But then there’s the reason Lauren can’t admit to anyone: Rob Conrad, her best friend’s older brother.
Football prowess and jaw-dropping good looks made Rob a star in high school. Out in the real world, his job and his relationships are going nowhere. He’s the guy who women love and leave, not the one who makes them think of forever—until Lauren comes back to town, bringing old feelings and new dreams with her.
Because the only thing more important than figuring out where you truly belong is finding the person you were meant to be with.
Alright, I don’t really know where to start with this book or how I feel about it. It has been about a week since I completed my ARC, the book doesn’t actually release till September 30, 2014, and I am still feeling rather meh about the story. I want to like this book, and I knew I wanted to read it the instant I saw the cover. The story and the plot just didn’t do it for me. It wasn’t a terrible book there was just no meat to entice me and make me want to continue reading. There was no drama, and let me elaborate on this.
Lauren strikes me as kinda slutty, she messed up at school and basically drops out and comes home. Lauren has had a crush on Rob for ever and suddenly Rob ditches his girlfriend and essentially admits he has wanted Lauren for a long time, yada yada, you get the idea. Now my problem was that there was no huge drama. There was a mild fight between Lauren and Rob’s ex, but then they become best friends and actually roommates at one point? It just was not a believe-able story. So in the end I finished the book, I didn’t love it but I didn’t hate it, it was just okay for me.
