Veer starts off a few months after Derailed left off with Molly and Ben, and in Veer we are seeing Becca's story come to life, she is Molly's best friend from law school that you will remember from the first book. The book starts off with Becca driving to Clayton Falls for the summer to spend time with Molly, and on the way there, her car stalls and will not start, and she is on the side of a long road by herself, and her cell phone has no signal. Someone happens to be driving by, and it turns out that it is Gavin, and he lets her know that he is a police officer, and convinces her that he will take her in to town to Molly's house, and during the drive she gets to see some of his charming personality (sarcasm?.....ABSOLUTELY!).

Becca decides to spend the summer with Molly in Clayton Falls and work at the local law offices as unfortunately her Mother has passed away after a long illness, and she has no other family, and Molly is the closest friend that she has. She is not sure if coming to town is the best thing after a few days as her first week has left not the greatest of impressions on her as far as the people around town, but she does decide to stay for the remainder of the summer anyways.

She easily makes friends with Molly's other friends in town, especially Jake (who is Ben's brother) who she is able to hang out with and watch movies and stuff. The only person that she is not able to make friends with easily is Gavin, and she is unsure as to why, it seems that every time they try to have a conversation it turns in to an argument of some sort.

The same things that I loved about book #1 were brought over in to this novel as well, I got that Nora Roberts feel again, but with more realistic histories with the characters that they have to try and work through. As the summer goes on, you get to see how Becca grows, and also you get to see the relationship between her and Gavin change slowly but surely, and it is a wonderful journey.

So if I have not made it clear already, this series is a smash for me, and I am so excited to see what happens in book #3. Absolute 5/5 and if you are a fan of the new adult genre, or even contemporary romance, this is a series that is not to be missed, I stayed up all night reading these books, I started at about 10 PM and thought I would just get them started, and did not go to bed till the next morning when I was finished with both of them.
