SynopsisAre you a hero yet? Her words rang in my head. I wanted to be. For you, I want to be, I told her in my dream, the dream where she kissed me again. A hero-worthy kiss. Stay safe, she had said. Come back to me. My lips tingled. The brush of hers over mine a memory held in the blackest of night, the hottest of desert days, and the cold-evil hell of war against hidden enemies.
I wanted another chance to taste those lips, melt them against mine, and mold her body to me. I wanted to live. For Katie.

About the AuthorAvid drinker of Coca-Cola, L.B. Dunbar loves the sweet things in life. Her affair with all things romantic began with her first book at the tender age of six: Goldilocks and the Three Bears. One can never forget her first! From there, the reading journey includes a deep love of fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and alpha males. She loves a deep belly laugh and a strong hug. Occasionally, she has the energy of a Jack Russell terrier. Accused, yes, that’s the correct word, of having an over active imagination; to her benefit, such an imagination works well. Author of over a dozen novels, she’s created small town worlds, rock star mayhem, and MMA chaos. Her other duties in life include: mother to four growing children and wife to the one and only.

Review Copy provided by Author
Do you believe in fate? What about second chances?
In The History of Us, we get to see a prime example of both!
Several brief encounters between a young Levi and an even younger Katie made a big impression on both of them. So big, that it seemed like it had to be fate when they discovered themselves in the same graduate history class.
Ms. Dunbar does an excellent job of introducing us to the doubts, fears, and baggage that both Levi and Katie carry with them as they navigate reconnecting and forming a relationship. The fact that there was a little bit of hero worship and idolization on both sides colors some of their interactions - and at times made me want to smack both of the upside the head.
I enjoyed Katie and Levi and the emotional discoveries that they made for themselves and how that worked with them as a couple.
Ms. Dunbar is a newer author to me and I am looking forward to trying more of her work.
