Stuck With Me is a work of fiction in the contemporary romance, slice-of-life, and interpersonal drama subgenres. It is best suited to mature readers owing to explicit language and sexual situations throughout. Penned by author Leslie McElroy, the story revolves around Lucy Gilbert, a small-town girl who returns to her hometown from New York City in search of something more. A hopeless romantic, Lucy is still in pursuit of her own epic love story, with the memory of her high school crush, Jamie Gallagher, lingering in her heart. When she encounters Jamie, now the assistant coach for the high school basketball team, the past rushes back, reigniting a complicated love.

Author Leslie McElroy has lovingly crafted a delightful journey into the intricacies of love and second chances that I thoroughly enjoyed from cover to cover. I was especially entranced by the warmth of the close narrative style, letting us into Lucy’s thoughts and emotions with a relatable level of humor and charm. McElroy crafts a compelling narrative that explores the complexity of emotions when faced with past love and the challenges of moving forward. The entire ensemble cast of characters is well-drawn and relatable, and the story is both heartwarming and heart-wrenching as Lucy and Jamie grapple with their feelings and the obstacles that life has thrown their way. I really enjoyed the dialogue and the dynamics it created. Themes of love, hurt, and passion are well-balanced in a fast-paced and interesting plot, making it a captivating and emotionally resonant read that never has a dull moment. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Stuck With Me to fans of contemporary romance everywhere as a read you’re guaranteed to fall in love with.
