HIM by Carey Heywood

Sarah Miller hasn’t been home in seven years. She thought she could stay away forever. If it wasn’t for her big brother's wedding, that is. Part of her even feels silly for staying away this long. It's not like anyone even knew what happened. Well, except for him. 
That guy. The one she compared all others to. The one who set the bar so high no other guy after him could even compete. The one who made her feel like anything was possible. The one she thought she would never be good enough for. The one she spent the last seven years trying to forget.
All she needs to do is make it through the next week without running into him.
Author Bio:

Carey Heywood lives in Richmond, Virginia with her husband, three children, and nine-pound attack Yorkie. In her spare time, she transports her children from one extra-curricular activity to another while maintaining her day job in the world of finance. Right now, she is probably eating Swedish Fish.

review by Wendy

Sarah Miller has worked hard to get where she is. Seven years ago she left home to get away from HIM. After his betrayal she threw herself into school and then work. Sarah's dedication to her work has made her successful, but she uses her work to avoid going back and uses it as a crutch to avoid romantic relationships. No one has lived up to bar he set.  Sarah has managed to avoid going home, until now. Her brother Brian is getting married and she can no longer avoid it. All she has to do is avoid seeing HIM for the next week, that shouldn't be that difficult, right?

WOW!  Where do I start.  This story goes between two timelines, what's currently happening and what happened in the past. Each chapter alternates between the two and you get a little more each time. The story progressed at a perfect pace, not to fast or too slow. The characters are engaging, well developed, and you are always guessing what happened. The intimacy level was a happy medium, not too graphic but also no "fade to black." I was thoroughly engrossed in this book and couldn't put it down. One more chapter turned into 4am. 

“What are you playing at, Will?'

"Playing?" He tugs my arm back so I'm facing him. "I promise you this is no game."

"Alright, what do you want from me? Is that better?" I practically spit.

"Everything." He's moved his hands up to hold my biceps. "I want everything from you.”

There is a cliffhanger of sorts and will be continued in HER, due out November 2013. I highly recommend this book and its already on my re-read list!
