The Natural History of Us - cover

One class assignment. One second chance at love. The school player is all in. Now he needs to win back the sweet commitment girl who's forever owned his heart.
Justin Carter has a secret. He's not the total player Fairfield Academy believes him to be. Not really. In fact, he used to be a one-woman guy...and his feelings for her never went away. Too bad he broke her heart three years ago and made sure to ruin any chance she'd ever forgive him.
Peyton Williams is a liar. She pretends to be whole, counting down the days until graduation and helping her parents at the family ranch. But the truth is, she's done everything she can to get over Justin, and salvation is just around the corner. With graduation one short month away, she'll soon break free from the painful memories and start her life fresh. Of course, she has to get through working with him on one last assignment first.
For Justin, nothing ever felt as right as being with Peyton, and now that fate's given him a shot at redemption, he's determined to make the most of it. And for Peyton...well, Justin Carter has always been her kryptonite.

When I first read "The Fine Art of Pretending" Justin was a character I desperately wanted to know about. If I didn't love the male lead so much already, I would have voted for Justin to win the girl of that book. Alas, I'm so happy that he didn't. Peyton. There's not much to say except I completely adored her. She was sweet yet strong, and she's the only girl to have Justin's heart. 

But Justin did a big no-no push Peyton away - now it's years later, senior year, no less - and the two are paired up for a class project. Justin feels like it's his chance to finally make things right but Peyton isn't having any of it. I liked the fact that we got to see Peyton and Justin fall in love in there freshman year. I only had one tiny problem. 

I hated the fact that Justin waited so damn long to make things right. No matter what his reasons were, he should have explained things sooner. It's like we're expected to believe he's in love with this one girl but since he's too scared to do anything about it, he goes and hooks up with anyone with a vagina. Not cool. I understand the why but I still think it's a lame excuse. 

Other than that, I adored the story. Justin is just as swoonworthy as I remembered him to be. He's sweet, attentive, and I think once we get passed the fact that he's a manwhore, he's actually a decent guy. Overall, I fully and wholeheartedly recommend these books to everyone. Rachel Harris truly knows how to hit the spot when it comes to contemporary romance.
