Ian's Way

This hit a lot of chords with me.  A lot of people do hit their peak in high school, while others move on and become something spectacular.  For some, the reunion is their chance for vindication.  That said, I really enjoyed reading about Nikky and Ian.

Nikky is a stereotyped party girl, but she’s actually more.  Deep inside she yearns for others to see her differently but doesn’t know how to achieve that.  She’s successful in the business world, but the label has stuck.  She and her BFF from high school are always discussing her life and how to deal with her difficulties, and her friend was a hoot with her convoluted logic.

Ian is delightfully clueless in the common sense department.  He so analyzes everything that he misses the big picture at times, but his good friend (who I’d like to read more about) sets him straight.  The “one” night was well-written and very erotic.  Ian’s venture into being an alpha was more amusing that alarming and their adjustment of their views of what their relationship was, could be and should be was realistic. All in all a good read, with a happy ending that I really enjoyed, and a promise of a romance between Ian and Nikky’s respective best friends.
