Review: CAUGHT UP IN US by Lauren Blakely

An old romance may be rekindled when two people are thrust together for a business mentorship. Kat just wants to learn the ins and outs so she can grow her homemade jewelry business. She hopes to make enough money to pay off her student loans and help out her struggling parents. Her plans don’t include Bryan, a guy that broke her heart five years ago.

Strictly in the POV of Kat, who goes on and on about Bryan—how he was the first love of her life, how he could’ve been the one, how he totally destroyed her, blah, blah, blah. Mostly it’s about her fawning and pining over Bryan, who is as hot as he could be. Yadda-yadda-yadda. It becomes tiring, and the fact that the two pretend there’s nothing going on is typical and uninspiring.

This is the classic story of mixing business with pleasure with the business end taking precedence and leading the story nowhere.

My rating: 2 stars
