SynopsisAre you a hero yet? Her words rang in my head. I wanted to be. For you, I want to be, I told her in my dream, the dream where she kissed me again. A hero-worthy kiss. Stay safe, she had said. Come back to me. My lips tingled. The brush of hers over mine a memory held in the blackest of night, the hottest of desert days, and the cold-evil hell of war against hidden enemies.
I wanted another chance to taste those lips, melt them against mine, and mold her body to me. I wanted to live. For Katie.Goodreads
I have read a few books by this author and I knew from the last book I read from her The Sex Education of Me that The History in Us was going to be a great read. I could just feel it in my bones and I was absolutely right. OMG!!! This story leaves you with a roller coaster of emotions even lasting after you finished reading it. The characters have gone through so much and hold onto more than they should. Starting at a young age they hold onto a fantasy of each other- a kiss that they can't forget.
Katie leaves her small town and heads to the big city to find answers, during that time she works on her dream of becoming a writer. I feel in love with her and her fantasy of knights, castles, a woman who can slay dragons and a hero. Katie is a one of a kind woman with a big heart and sweet as can be, she holds on to the heartbreak of her childhood that has her trying hard to protect her heart. When someone from her past comes back into her life, she realizes that he never left and memories from their past begins a relationship that she always wished for but never saw coming.
Levi's family was the talk of the small town he grew up in, wanting to run away from the bad stories that have tarnished his last name, he joins the service. He takes with him a kiss and the thought of being somebody's hero. It seemed to much to live up to so he pushed back that thought, became a father and fought the memories of those he lost on the battlefield. Levi's life is not easy as a single father with trying to raise a baby and still go after his dream of becoming a photographer. He has a great support team and it gets even better when he runs into Katie, that is until he fights his feelings and every doubt he seems to have bites him in the ass. Katie is everything he has ever wanted but he doesn't feel deserving, will he be able to follow his heart and go after what he truly wants before it's to late?
The History in Us is one story that you will find yourself wanting to talk about but not wanting to spoil anything. The emotions in the story have to be felt by the reader because it's powerful, it's not only powerful it's sexy, heartfelt, heartbreaking, frustrating and just filled with love- A love that started years ago but has too many obstacles in between. I just want to shout... I LOVE THIS STORY!!!
