The Summer I Found You, by Jolene Perry
Two interesting protagonists with a painfully obvious solution in front of them. I'll agree it isn't easy to make the right decisions even when they are blatantly obvious. However, it is a strain on the reader to maintain interest in a story line that relies upon keeping the characters stubborn as long as is feasibly possible. That can feel a bit artificial. Especially so, when resolving the drama is achieved by simply having the characters change their minds. And while I get how events pushed Kate into cleaning up her life, I'm less convinced by Aidan's eventual coming round.
