Georgie was the only person who knew Will was gay. Will was Georgie’s best friend. Georgie had been telling Will to come out of the closet for months but Will was the Golden Boy of the town and didn’t want a lot of drama about his sexuality. Will and Georgie had known each other since before birth. Will was a Montgomery whose ancestors were the founding family of Cullar. In Cullar everyone knows everything about everybody just the way it was in the small town. Everyone in town had been betting on Georgie and Will eventually getting married. Georgie;s mom is the only party planner in Culler. She was now busy working on Drew Montgomery's wedding. Chloe had become her mother’s assistant. Then Georgie thought about how it used to always be the three of them. Georgie, Will, and Beau. Beau had been Georgie;s first kiss and kind of first boyfriend but then he broke Georgie’s heart. Beau was suppose to take Georgie to the Sweetheart’s dance and they would make it known they were a couple but he never showed up . Beau and his mom Kerri Ann left town and Beau didn’t even say goodbye to Georgie. Beau had called and tried to talk to Georgie after to explain to her but all she said was you broke my heart Beau stopped trying after that. Beau was also the only secret Georgie had ever kept from Will. The Night of The End Of the Year party Will said he had met someone but the other boy also hadn’t come out of the closet either. The young men both wanted to see each other again but they had to figure out how, Beau thought he would never be in Culler again but he would be for the whole summer as he was going to be a groomsman in his cousin Drew’s wedding. Georgie had always been Drew’s fantasy girl and he had screwed that up. Georgie was a tornado as far as Beau is concerned: unpredictable, fierce, and mesmerizing. Or she had been two years ago when Beau had last seen her. Will’s, Georgie;s and Beau’s mom Kerri Ann had been the Trio they had been best friends forever, sorority sisters, neighbors, and partners in crime until Kerri Ann had left with Beau after Beau’s father had lied and cheated on Kerri Ann and then they had divorced. Georgie wants the best for Will and then Will comes up with Georgie being his pretend girlfriend so he could get away without being questioned to meet up with the guy he liked. Beau believes Georgie is seeing Will now. Also his relationship is strained with his father as he hadn’t forgave his father for what he had done that had forced his and his mom to leave. But Beau really wants Georgie to forgive him.
I enjoyed reading this book. I liked how the author displayed Will’s torn feelings about being gay and letting everyone know. I loved how loyal Georgie was to Will. This did drag at little for me at times but not enough to not finish the book. I felt there was a lot of realism in this book. I liked that we got to see both Georgie’s and Beau’s POV s. I also liked how it showed growth in Beau as the book went on. I loved Beau’s determination to make things right with Georgie. I really enjoyed the small town atmosphere of this book. I really enjoyed all the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it
