The History In Us by L.B. Dunbar

Cover Design: Shanoff Formats
Release Date: June 2, 2017
Synopsis
  Are 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.

History is an understatement when it comes to childhood acquaintances Levi and Katie.  Both from small town Elk Rapids, Michigan their journey doesn’t just cross paths but collides together in an inseparable weave tugging our heart strings along the way.  

Where do I begin with this story?  Katie Carter has held my heart since she was a little girl when I first read her characters in Sound Advice, a part of The Sensations Series.  Now, you don’t have to read this series to meet and learn about Katie Carter.  Dunbar pretty much reminds you of who Katie is from the get go and this is your chance to see her as an adult.   However, if you love a great story, one click away because Dunbar has some absolutely fabulous books!  

Katie is super woman.  Her strength astounds me.  Having been a child who suffered through pain, her positive outlook and willingness to help others makes her a character I could root for without hesitation.  Katie’s childhood crush, Levi is anything but simple.  A veteran who lost his leg to service, Levi Walker has issues to say the least.  Recently left as a single dad, Levi spends a lot of this book getting his head on straight.  Which at times I found utterly frustrating, however at the same time could completely understand.  It was Katie’s unconditional love of this broken man and his wonderful son that kept me reading along.

Although I really liked where this story was leading, The History in Us didn’t really grab hold of me and make me want to read the book cover to cover absorbing every single word.  It really did take me a bit to latch onto this story.  All the components to an excellent story were there- romance, touch of angst, sweet and sexy scenes, however it took me until about 50% of the way in to really get invested.  Overall, I still enjoyed seeing Katie Carter grow up and her story evolve to one filled with a fairytale of love.

About the Author
Avid 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.
