What do you do when you are put in a situation to be face to face with your high school crush, your first love and the first man to ever break your heart? That's exactly what happened to Liv when she is asked to interview Vinnie for internship she is doing.
Vinnie can't believe when he sees Liv show up at his self-defense class. It's been seven years since he last saw the girl who used to tutor him in English and also stole his heart. He knows she's still upset about how he just left her - but he thought he was doing the right thing, thinking there was no way he was good enough for her.
Liv really doesn't want to fall back into feeling something for Vinnie. She knows he's a player - and she's not sure if she can trust him to not leave her again. Vinnie is very convincing in his attempt at starting things up again with her.
"It's just you. It's all too much, too fast, and too intense, and it scares me. Scares the hell out of me." - Liv
"I want to promise you I'll slow down, take things slower, but I don't want to start things off on a lie. I'm not sure I can do slow around you, Liv." - Vinnie
Even though they agree to give their relationship a try - Liv is keeping the real reason she's doing the story on Vinnie to herself. She wants to tell him the truth, she thinks she's doing the right thing and doesn't want to hurt him. In the end, the truth is exposed and the fallout is heartbreaking.
I loved this story about Vinnie and Liv. I enjoyed seeing how they first met back when they were in high school - and learning how that relationship changed as they got to know each other. There were lots of fun moments - I especially enjoyed the game of "bar forensics" that Liv played with her best friend and then Vinnie. And Vinnie, well lets just say - he is hot and sexy, with a caring heart. A beautiful story of second chances in more way then one.
