When you're lost, sometimes the only place you can go is home. Broken over the death of her fiancé, Molly leaves law school to return to her childhood home in North Carolina. Expecting to lay low until she can figure out what else to do with her life, she finds herself in the arms of her high school sweetheart, the boy who represents everything from the past she tried to leave behind. Looking for an escape, she instead finds a way back to the girl she almost forgot existed and a future she never dreamed possible.
I found Derailed an emotional engrossing story that; captured my attention quickly. Molly has suffered the loss of her fiance. She quiets law school in Boston and moves home to North Carolina. Molly meets up with childhood best friend Kelly and sees her high school sweet heart Ben.
Molly has experienced some really some really hard things in her life. I felt that she is trying to find her way and really grows through the story. Alyssa does a excellent job with the plot and character development.
I instantly liked Ben. I felt he has always loved Molly even though the relationship they had ended five years earlier. I found myself rooting for them to get back together. I also liked that Ben has gown and learned what is really important. I found the ending so sweet! Alyssa has crafted a memorable story.
I would have like a little more info on how Molly worked out her issues and a more info on the road trip they took.
Just FYI~ this story does contain swearing and premarital sex behind closed doors, but does have some mildly descriptive foreplay.
