The Natural History of Us
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Natural History of Us “Paired with the boy who irrevocably broke my heart… Justin Carter.”

This was a YA contemporary romance story, with a bit of mystery.

Peyton seemed like quite a confident girl who wouldn’t let her illness hold her back, Justin on the other hand hadn’t made the best choices when it came to their relationship.

The storyline in this was about Peyton and Justin being thrown together for a class project, and having to work together even though they were once boyfriend and girlfriend. The story kept jumping back and forth between the past and present though, and I felt like I spent most of the book just waiting to find out what happened to split Peyton and Justin up the first time they were together.

The ending to this was okay, and we did get a happy ending eventually, it just seemed to take a long time to get there though.

6 out of 10
