A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new erotic romance from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.
Grayson Cleary left town before graduation day and never looked back. Most people back home pegged him as a dropout. Over time, he's worked to make something of his life and leave his past behind, so when his ten-year reunion comes up, he has no intention of attending. When his best friend begs him to go, Grayson finds himself confronted with a past he'd rather forget and the one woman he's always craved.
Kate St. Dalton had everything when she left her hometown. Not only was she Valedictorian with a full scholarship, but she was also engaged to the boy of her dreams. Then, life threw a wrench in her plans, and she had to find a way to live the new life fate handed her. The last thing she needs is the hot boy from high school returning to town as the sexy man of her dreams.
When the two take a chance and use the reunion week to burn up the sheets, they'll have to remember that it's only for a few nights—not for a lifetime. And decide if what they have is just a fling…or something far more than a mere reunion.

5 super yummy bad boy stars for DROPOUT!
Grayson Cleary does NOT want to head back to Catfish Creek for his 10 year high school reunion, especially since everyone thinks he dropped out and never graduated. But to do a friend a favor, Grayson leaves Denver and heads to TX toward the people he can't stand in the town he left behind. Kate St. Dalton can't believe that Grayson still stirs up the warm fuzzies, but after a disaster of a marriage, she's not interested in men anytime soon. Except that she loves his blunt ways, his good looks…and the promise of seeing his ink. Kate has been looking for a way out of Catfish Creek for a long time, could a relationship with Grayson be just what she needs to make a major life move with her kids?
DROPOUT is the second book in the Bad Boys Homecoming series from a variety of authors. I didn't know that they were written by multiple people, and this was the second book in a row I've read featuring Catfish Creek. I spent far too long contemplating the fact that these two distinguished writers seemed to be totally copying one another before realizing this, and gave myself a literal head smack for not just looking on Goodreads at the series info to start. Anyway!
I really liked this book! Who can't relate to those awkward teenage years or the growth that happens afterward? Who doesn't consider what might have been when thinking of an epic crush during their formative years? Oh, just me? Gotcha.
DROPOUT was funny and sweet and sexy as hell. The chemistry between Grayson and Kate was fabulous, you could tell that their connection ran deep almost immediately upon reconnecting. I can't wait for more reads in the Bad Boys Homecoming series!
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
