Dropout, by Carrie Ann Ryan is a contemporary romance novel that incorporates unrequited love, second chances, and high school reunions in small towns.
Kate (Williamson) St. Dalton is once again living in her hometown of Catfish Creek, Texas. However, she's ready to move away and start over, due to issues with her ex-husband, parents, and current boss, as well as various townspeople's constant comments regarding her college dropout status.
Grayson Cleary is also considered a dropout by this small town, since he skipped his high school graduation and moved away. With the ten-year high school reunion looming, Grayson is back in Catfish Creek and sees Kate, who was his first crush and the woman he has always wanted, even though nothing happened back in high school. And Grayson still wants Kate, and their re-introduction leads to a fling.
This book is a part of the Bad Boy Homecoming series, which consists of five books each written by a different author: Carrie Ann Ryan, Avery Flynn, Katee Robert, Kennedy Layne, and Stacey Kennedy. Even though Dropout is considered the first book in the Bad Boy Homecoming series, it's not necessary to read the books in order.
Dropout is geared towards those who enjoy reading contemporary romances, especially with several interconnecting stories.
Note: I received this book from the author, who provided ARC copies for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
