Review for Caught Up in Us by Lauren Blakely

Caught Up In Us
Five years ago, Kat Harper fell into a dizzying summer romance with her brother’s best friend Bryan. It was a mad, crazy love full of kisses all through the night — but he broke her heart and she had to move on.

Five years later, Kat is finishing her graduate degree and building her business as a jewelry designer, when Bryan, head of his own successful company, walks back into her life. Bryan has been assigned to Kat as her new business mentor and the rules are clear. No hanky panky permitted. That works for both of them. Kat needs to grow her business to help her parents; Bryan needs to run a clean operation after his former business partner’s romantic scandal that rocked his firm.

Kat can handle that because she's totally over him... right? Except, he still makes her laugh. And he remembers all the things she likes. And he's more handsome now than he was then. Then there’s the spark between them — the simply undeniable chemistry.

Can they resist each other?
Or are they willing to risk everything for a second chance at first love?
Caught Up in Us is a story about a young love lost and then found again. Kat and Bryan fell in love over the summer. But when summer ended, so did they and Kat was left heartbroken. Five years later, she's finishing up her graduate degree, trying to find a way to help her parents business stay afloat, and has successfully gotten over Bryan and their lost love-- or so she thought. Bryan is paired with Kat as her mentor for her business class and sparks fly all over again. The trouble is, they need to keep their relationship a secret-- students aren't allowed to become romantically involved with their mentors and he needs to keep a low profile because of a lawsuit brought against his company by his former business partner. Easier said than done!
This is a fun story about a young love lost, and then found again. There's none of that crazy angst that we all love so much, it's just a really sweet story. And this one definitely has it's share of steamy moments! I really enjoyed this book, it was a nice, light read for me and I can't wait to read more from Lauren Blakely! 4 stars :)
A few quotes I loved:
“If I were a rock star, I’d have Taylor Swifted him and written one of those anthemic I don’t love you anymore songs.”
“I make jewelry. I drink caramel machiattos. I wear Hello Kitty to bed. Of course I love romantic comedies,' I said with a smile as we neared my house. But I didn’t just love them. I wanted to live within them. I wanted a love like in the movies.”
“Any girl who says she doesn’t keep a list of best kisses ever is lying. She may not have a pen-and-paper list, but she knows in her head who rocked her world and made her more than weak in the knees.”
