In a small town, it's hard to recover from being dumped by your high school sweetheart. That's just what Briana has to do after Colin leaves her to follow his dreams. She focuses her energy into her friendships and the pursuit of her own goal of becoming a chef. Just when she finally feels like she's on the right path, he comes back to town.

Colin knew breaking up with Briana before leaving for college was the right thing to do. He was determined to leave small-town life behind forever, and that included his high school girlfriend. But when a sports injury puts him on the sidelines, he's forced to return home. Seeing Briana again brings back a lot of memories, and Colin wonders if he made the right decision. It doesn't take long for him to realize he wants her back, and this time, he wants to make it last.

(synopsis taken from Goodreads)

Make it Last is a short and sweet story that seems to circle around something that most of us find hard: forgiveness. Briana “Bree” is a young woman on the verge of making her dream come true by getting in to a culinary school. Just as she’s working towards her goal enters Colin, her old high-school sweetheart who broke her heart when he dumped her before leaving for college.

I actually really liked this story. It was short, a quick read for a rainy day. And I certainly liked the characters though sometimes I felt like details were left out. Bree is pretty easy to relate to, as is her roommate and best friend Kara. Colin seems nice enough, and the fact that he’s grown up from his high school days is obvious! There are many characters to keep up with, many different story lines that are branching out from this first book in the series.

We can expect a lot more from Bethany Lopez I think! She’s a fantastic writer whose only bound to get better. At points the grammar needed work and I felt like situations were cleared up faster than possible. In the end though, I found that I wouldn’t mind reading the second book in the series, I Choose You. I’ll definitely be waiting to see what else Lopez gives us as she progresses with her writing!
