Who was your first crush? Was it someone from high school? Or a college mate? Thinking back... could you see yourself with them today? Do you think a college fling could become your happily ever after?
Many of us have fond remembrances of our high school or college crushes. We attend reunions hoping to see if they regret not staying with us or not taking a chance with us.
I bet none of your crushes turn out to be superstar country artists! Mine neither but Lara's did! If you have read the Country Roads Series by Grea Warner and fallen in love with Finn and Lara, now you can read about how the two met!
All My Memories, a Prequel tells of their awkward first meeting and so much more!!
Before he sold out concerts and had number one hits ...
Before she moved away to escape her past …
Before they lost touch …
Carefree Finn Murphy and reserved Lara Faulkner were college classmates. With fate drawing them to reunite, memories of that time eight years before takes hold of their hearts and minds.
What made these two opposites form a bond and friendship? How did bad timing stop them from having more? And what is bringing them back together after so many years apart?
Told from both Lara and Finn’s point-of-view, All My Memories is a unique and insightful prequel to the emotional, award-winning Country Roads series.
She was blunt and controlled but quiet. I had never seen Lara get really emotional. She was always stoic. And right then didn’t seem any different.
If I had been told the devastating news she had just relayed to me, I would have been absolutely destroyed. I would have been crying like a baby. I brought my head down the tiniest of bits to look her more directly in the eyes. “Yeah, I know. I was with Sam when you called for Olivia.”
“Oh.” She backed up a mini-step and started playing with some coins in her hand.
“I thought I’d come see you since Olivia is in class.”
“Yeah,” was her solitary reply.
“Lar, what happened … with your dad?”
“It was an ATV accident.” She had the slightest look of disgust on her face and her voice turned harsher. “I don’t want to talk about it.”
It was then I realized, besides the basics, she never talked about her family. “You sure?”
“Finn …” Her voice dropped off and was much softer.
It made me want to hold her …need to hold her. I wanted to take all of her pain away. So I did. I wrapped my arms around her. Miraculously, she let me. She was usually so reserved and didn’t want any kind of help. So it took me by surprise … but in a good way. It felt as if we were in a cocoon, where only I could shelter her from the pain of the outside world—as if I was the one friend she needed.
