Only when you let go can you learn to live.

Between the death of her mother and pushing through law school without her best friend, it's been a tough year for Becca. Needing a break from Boston, she moves to a tiny coastal North Carolina town for a relaxing summer. After bumping heads repeatedly with a local cop, she realizes her summer will be anything but quiet.

Three years after a career ending injury ruins his chance to play Major League Baseball, Gavin has a distrust of northerners and lately girls in general. He wants nothing to do with a girl who is only in town for the summer.

When the two give in to their impossible attraction, they realize that they may just have found the key to freeing themselves from the ghosts of their pasts.

I received Veer in return for an honest review from the author. Over the last year life hasn't been easy for Becca her mother has passed away, her best friend moved away and school has been a struggle. Needing to escape the city Becca heads to Clayton Falls, to spend the summer with her best friend Molly. Gavin used to play minor league baseball but has signed his contract to go pro until an injury ended his career forever. Now he’s reinvented himself as a local cop in Clayton Falls it’s been three years since his last serious relationship.
Before she can even make it into town her old VW bug dies on the dark highway leaving her stranded. 

However she can’t get cell service to call Molly for help, when a stranger stops and knocks on her window. Becca isn't thrilled by the thought of being stranded with a strange man knocking on her door but when he flashes her his badge she decides to open the door. He offers her a ride even admitting he’s a friend of Molly’s which is all the pushing she needs. Even though it’s a quick drive the tension in the SUV is anything but pleasant after a few sharp words are said by both.

Since Gavin is friends with Molly it’s impossible for them to avoid each other much less for the whole summer. Both Gavin and Becca can’t deny the attraction to each other so it’s only inevitable that they bump into each other several times. One drunken night ends in an awkward morning for both of them where Gavin tells Becca it’s a mistake let’s forget it happened. Furious about the brush off Becca heads home intent on avoiding Gavin the rest of the summer and ends up avoid everyone. Gavin having realized that their night was more than a one night stand sets out to make it up to Becca and win her heart. However Becca has a dark past will it ruin their chance for happiness?

Veer is the second book in the Clayton Falls series. I have so much love for this series and Veer doesn't disappoint if anything I love it more than Derailed. I love Becca she’s had a rough life but she’s done her best to not let it ruin her life if anything it’s made her more driven. Becca is the kind of girl you can’t help relating to, you want to be there for her when things get tough and cheer her own. I really liked Gavin in Derailed I felt bad for him after everything that happened in the first book so when I learned Veer was his story I was super excited. The story is beautifully written taken from both Becca and Gavin’s point of view giving a unique perspective of each character. I love the way the author creates a realistic story that feels like your right with the characters. I also love that these are clean romances so anyone teenager or adult will enjoy them. Clayton Falls is a amazing series I suggest everyone should read at least once.
