I really tried, but… (from readers choice list)
Jay Wynter wants to be successful on his own merit. That's why he left Sapphire Springs and his family's winery to build a career from scratch. But now that he's successor to Wynter Estate, Jay must return to his small hometown to face everything, and everyone, he left behind-especially his high school sweetheart, who happens to be his stunning new business partner . . .

Leyna Milan knows family legacies come with strings attached, but she's determined to prove that she can run her family's restaurant. Of course, Leyna never expected that honoring her grandfather's wishes meant opening a second location on her ex's property-or having to ignore Jay's sexy grin and guard the heart he shattered years before. But as they work closely together, she begins to discover that maybe first loves deserve a second chance . . .
I hate it when this happens. I see a book that I think I'll enjoy and then I don't. I'm lucky that it doesn't happy very often to me but it does every once in a while. This time it was with Forever with You. 

You all know that I love small-town romance so I couldn't wait to try this new author. 

As soon as I got it I started reading. Oh boy, that's when the trouble started. I don't know why I had such trouble getting into it but I did. I didn't like the feel of the writing. I'm sorry if that doesn't make sense to you but it's the only way I can explain it to you. 

I liked the idea so that wasn't the issue. I also liked Jay, he seemed to be a very nice guy. I think my issue was with Leyna. I really didn't like her at all. I couldn't put my finger on it but it was enough to make me want to stop reading the story. 

I will admit I only got about half the book finished before giving up. I usually only have this happen once a year and this was my book. Since it came out in November I think that isn't too bad. I almost made a full year without it happening. 

After trying to read the book I did go check out the reviews and notice that most people liked it so that made me think that it was my issue. Maybe someday I try it again but for now...

Come back on December 31st "Rehash of the year & what's coming for 2020"
