From the Start By Melissa Tagg

Back of the Book

Kate Walker used to believe in true love and happily ever after. While her own love life may have left her brokenhearted, it hasn't kept her from churning out made-for-TV romance movie screenplays...until a major career slump and a longing to do something meaningful send her running back to her hometown of Maple Valley. 

Permanently sidelined by an injury, former NFL quarterback Colton Greene is temporarily hiding out in a friend's hometown to avoid the media and the reminders of all he's lost. Maple Valley seems like the perfect place to learn how to adjust to normal life. The only trouble is he's never really done normal before.

While Kate plays things safe and Colton is all about big risks and grand gestures, they both get what it's like to desperately need direction in life. An unexpected project gives them both a chance to jumpstart their new lives, but old wounds and new dreams are hard to ignore. Starting over wasn't part of the plan, but could it be the best thing that's ever happened to them?

My Thoughts

From the start is one of those perfect books, the one you tell people they must read, but are reluctant to loan out your copy because you're afraid you won't get it back. Every scene in this book is spot on and hilarious, the scene when Colton and Kate met made me laugh so hard I had to go back and read it again.  Kate's family is just that, a family.  They have such normal family dynamics they were easy to understand and relate to. From the Start is clean, entertaining and fun.
