Perchance by Lila Felix

Goodreads description:

Remi Harris has a plan. Graduate high school, go to college, become a history teacher, be self-sufficient unlike her mother who is a struggling single mom. And the word ‘boy’ has no place in her plan.
Cooper Neal has been sent to his estranged father’s house to spend his Senior year getting to know him. And maybe, just maybe, there will be some cute girls in the small town.

Cooper sees Remi and he falls hard. Remi sees Cooper and wonders if she can do both. The question is; will he ruin her plans, or will she let him be a part of them?

Mary's Review:

I just love Lila! I do! Ever since I have read her very first book Emerge.  When she contacted me to read her new book I jumped at the chance.  I finished it in 1 day!  I could not put it down!  There are no supernaturals in this book, just a girl and a boy.  I loved it!

Best Part:  Well, I can add Cooper Neal to the Fictional Boyfriend list.  I fell in love with him.  He is kind, thoughtful, loving and loves Remi with all his heart.  I felt bad for Cooper at first because he was moving to a new town with his Dad that he did not really even know.  However, he pretty much falls in love with Remi in a heartbeat and there was no turning back.  I loved that Lila wrote him as a good guy.  Let me explain, he is polite, kind and just a good guy!  I also loved his grandmother, Edith! She was a great person in this book and reminded me of my own grandmother.  Remi is also amazing in this story.  I love that she comes from a hard life and has set goals for herself so that she does not end up like her mother.  Like Cooper, she is kind, sweet and she is a good person.  When she comes to live with her Aunt Brenda she was just going to focus on school, but Cooper changed that!

Not so great:  Ok, I am a very nosy person, when it comes to epilogues.  I want to know it ALL! However, in this epilogue it was a little lacking at the end and I was still wanting more! Not sure if there is more to come but I can hope because I would love to see more of Cooper and Remi in my Book Nerd Life.
