Going Long by Ginger Scott Review
Can first loves really be forever?
Nolan Lennox was strong, a survivor. She’d stood up to those who tore her down and found her purpose in life when she was at her lowest, her heart broken. And she was rewarded with the fairytale ending she’d always dreamed of. She spent four years loving Reed Johnson, the popular quarterback at her small town high school, earning his friendship first and, eventually, his heart. But fairy tales are fiction, and life…well, real life is messy. Can Reed and Nolan’s love survive the growing pains that come along with truly growing up?
Reed and Nolan’s story continues in Going Long, the sequel to Waiting on the Sidelines.
I have missed Nolan and Reed. In Going Long we catch up with them in college. Reed is on track to be a professional football player and Nolan is doing her best to finish her special education degree. They are still going to different schools, but they are trying to make it work. When Nolan finds out something that she doesn't feel like she can tell Reed about, their relationship starts to shift. In walks Gavin, there to hold Nolan's hand and help her with her studies. Reed focuses all his energy on football and going to the NFL draft after the season.
The wheels fall off for Nolan, but her friends help her though it. They also help Reed to work his way back into her life. Once they start to figure out how to communicate, things start to flow again, until they struck by another crisis. Be sure to read this book and see how the story of Nolan and Reed ends. 5 out of 5!
