How Not To by Devin Sawyer


When you’re young you think you know it all. I was fortunate enough to live in a world where poverty was just something I’d heard of, but never experienced. Until, I took a chance on the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. The chemistry undeniable. Our worlds collided and I fell hard, we both did. I needed him to stay and when he didn’t, it broke my heart. So I grew up and moved on. I didn’t know who I was back then, or what I was up against. But I do now. I won’t make the same mistakes. 

I made mistakes, I thought I knew what I was doing. Turns out sometimes loyalty and stupidity go hand in hand. I took the one thing I needed most and I pushed her away with my actions. Sent her running in the opposite direction is more like it. When fate brings us together again, I desperately want to make things right, prove to her that I’m not that guy anymore. Time has done nothing to put out the fire between us, but she has no plans to let me be a part of her future. I’m about to change that.

Oh Devin, Devin, Devin. Fate brought you into my life for a reason. To bring me this book.

Author Devin Sawyer’s debut hit the streets running and struck me like a Mack truck. Or a semi. Or a double decker bus. A big, big vehicle of some sort.

ANYWAY. This is an amazing book of second chance romance. The beginning to the end. The two growing up. The two becoming everything. Debut or not, this one is a definite picker-upper. (Isn’t that a paper towel slogan?)
