#Book #Review *Caught up in You*

After attending her baby sister’s destination wedding, Shelby Worthington decides she’s ready to do some husband hunting of her own. The only problem? She’s still insanely attracted to Declan Enright, her high school and college crush. He’s now a wildly successful painter who’s temporarily back in Magnolia Bay, but Declan should be Shelby’s last choice for possible husband material. He didn’t earn the reputation of runaway groom for nothing…
Declan has worked hard to make his mark on the New York art scene and has succeeded at everything he’s ever done…except love. But Declan has come back to the Bay to change that and care for his dying father, even if he’s still never forgiven Declan for leaving the family business. Shelby is determined to steer clear, but while her lips keep saying no, her heart is pounding out yes each time she and Declan are together. While she can’t deny her attraction, Shelby’s convinced that Declan’s track record means he will break her heart. Or has Declan changed for good, and made love worth the risk?

When I decided to review this book, it was for my "try something new pile." I honestly wasn't sure I'd like it. It kind of seemed, to me from the description anyway, that it was going to be one of those "always the bridesmaid, never the bride" books. I do have to admit it started a bit slow for me and I wasn't positive I was going to like the style of writing. However, it seemed to change a bit in.
This book allows its characters to return to something they thought was lost to them forever - trust and love. Sometimes giving (even accepting) a second chance can be almost impossible. The book flowed wonderfully and you got to know the characters (after the bumps at the beginning that I mentioned above). 
The ending was abrupt, almost causing me to not give four stars. I would have loved more elaboration.
Still overall a great read.
