About this deal

I must say, I had my skepticism firmly in place for the "going back" element of this story from the very start.

Georgie and Levi are opposites, he’s grumpy and she’s an optimist, but they balance each other out and need each other more than they believe they do at first.Thankfully, there are some redeeming qualities: Once everyone starts actually talking with each other, things start making some sense at least. The world is going to fall hard for this deliciously whimsical and captivating story, and I cannot wait to see it! To an overwhelmed Georgie, the diary’s simple, small-scale ideas are a lifeline – a guidebook for getting started on a new path. And what is it that connects readers, on a human level, to the archetypes of a "flighty and somewhat aimless" heroine and the "taciturn outcast" hero? Fast forward several years and Georgie finds herself working as a PA for several in the entertainment industry in LA.

As it slowly reveals his troubled past, there's a bit of a mystery regarding the ties to his family. the looooooong mental interludes and descriptions of things that were either not additive to the book, or worse, had already happened and the characters were just repetitively ruminating. Kate Clayborn, if you’re reading this, please make this a series and have the next one be about Evan or Olivia so I can die happy.

In the realistic and insightful romance novel Georgie, All Along , two people reinvent themselves--and ignite heat in the process. I plodded forward with reading the e-ARC anyway because the idea of passing up a Kate Clayborn novel just isn’t in my DNA. But then Georgie comes across a forgotten artifact—a “friendfic” diary she wrote as a teenager, filled with possibilities she once imagined.

Oh… and did I mention that she’s house sitting for her parents and finds she unexpectedly has a roommate… the gorgeous and troubled hermit Levi Fanning. So, Georgie decides to head home to small-town Virginia, to house sit for her traveling parents, in hopes of regrouping and getting back to the basics while she’s at it. so i just finished this book and i'm a bit shell shocked at how good it was so this review is not gonna be coherent at all, more like an unhinged list of all the things that made me fall so hard for this book.

I want Georgie to be my best friend (no offense to my current best friends) and I have a big fat crush on Levi (no offense to my husband). It appears Georgie's father forgot to inform her that while they are away, they have invited Levi Fanning (who was also unaware of Georgie's plans to visit) to housesit while Levi’s house is undergoing some repair.

I'm going to start this review by saying that this was a difficult read for me, and I'm unsure whether it was down to the slump I'm currently in or the book itself.I know it’s a simple premise, going home to find yourself and falling for the old school bad boy, but it’s so much more than that, there are so many layers that this story will suck you in and keep you reading till the last page and then leave you bereft when you realise there are no more pages and you have to say goodbye. A nearly 30-year-old girl goes back to her hometown and wants to do a list of things she wrote about in her journal at the time?
