The highly anticipated sequel to Positively Mine….
Picking up from the dramatic ending of Positively Mine, Yours and Mine continues the Freshman Forty series as we meet Danny Santoro, Laurel’s baby’s father, for the first time.
It’s been almost a year since he last saw her, that sultry morning she walked off the beach before dawn had even cracked the August sky. It seemed from her silence, she was out of his life forever.
But Laurel’s timing couldn’t be worse to tell him he’s a father. The last year hasn’t been easy. Danny’s own father was arrested for a DUI, his mother moved out, and Danny started sleeping with his brother’s old high school, drug-abusing girlfriend.
After Laurel shocks him with the news, she attempts to relinquish Danny of any parental responsibility leading to a heated custody battle. In an unorthodox arrangement, an eccentric judge orders Danny and Laurel to spend alternating nights with each other for the upcoming school year.
Told from Danny’s point of view, Yours and Mine explores the second chapter of a romance that never got off the ground, the challenges of young parenting, and the hope of rekindled love.
Yours and Mine by Christine Duval is the highly anticipated follow up to Positively Mine. I absolutely adored every moment of this sweet contemporary romance and yet it also caused me to experience an overwhelming amount of emotions. This story picks right up from where book one leaves off and is told entirely in Danny’s POV this time. In less than three hours I found myself falling in love with this couple. Lauren and Danny’s story took us on a rollercoaster of emotions and heartache, and in the end their relationship grew stronger than ever. I am so glad that I waited to read both books until this one released because as soon as I finished book one I was craving more. Christine Duval did an extraordinary job with this series and I loved that I got to see both sides of their story!
As I mentioned above, this story was told entirely in Danny’s POV since we saw Laurel’s side in book one. Finally we were given the opportunity to find out more about the baby’s father. While Positively Mine had me on the edge of my seat, Yours and Mine had me up and out of my seat trying to run towards the next scene. I can’t wait to see what the author comes up with next!
