That Girl by H.J. Bellus

This book is about That Girl…

The girl who leaves behind her past, including her name; runs away from home and vows to never let another identity claim her again. Broken dreams, an abusive step-dad and ugly memories from her childhood are the only shattered remnants that have the ability to haunt her.

With no money, an endless blank slate laying ahead of her and no hopes for the future, she sets out to survive at minimum wage jobs, moving from town to town, changing her name with each move, and never allowing glimpses of her past to threaten her empty future.
Average in every way, from her looks to her personality and even her style, there is not much to remember about her. When she abandons one town for another, she leaves behind her fake identity in the search of the next one, while leaving people asking themselves, “I wonder what ever became of that girl.”

This was her reality until Lincoln Wilks.

The number one defensive football player in Fort Collins who finally names That Girl.


 This book was hard for me at the beginning. That Girl is about a young woman who suffers horrible abuse at the hands of her mother and numerous step-fathers. She and her best friend plan for years to run away on her 18th birthday. She goes but her friend stays and she tries as hard as she can to get as far away as she can. 

Lincoln Wilks is a star football player but his parents don't know he exists. He's lived his life in his brother's shadow. After a chance meeting with Oakley, he's smitten. He can't get her out of his mind and makes a decision to be part of her life. Oakley is resistant to love because she's known nothing but pain, and she can't understand why this gorgeous, popular, wealthy man is interested in her.

This story was wonderful. It took me a while to let go of Oakley's pain of her past, just like she did. Lincoln is an amazing book boyfriend. He just did what needed to be done to take care of and make Oakley feel special. I loved this book! 4.5 out of 5!
