About THE NATURAL HISTORY OF US:

One class assignment. One second chance at love. The school player is all in. Now he needs to win back the sweet commitment girl who's forever owned his heart.

Justin Carter has a secret. He's not the total player Fairfield Academy believes him to be. Not really. In fact, he used to be a one-woman guy...and his feelings for her never went away. Too bad he broke her heart three years ago and made sure to ruin any chance she'd ever forgive him.

Peyton Williams is a liar. She pretends to be whole, counting down the days until graduation and helping her parents at the family ranch. But the truth is, she's done everything she can to get over Justin, and salvation is just around the corner. With graduation one short month away, she'll soon break free from the painful memories and start her life fresh. Of course, she has to get through working with him on one last assignment first.

For Justin, nothing ever felt as right as being with Peyton, and now that fate's given him a shot at redemption, he's determined to make the most of it. And for Peyton...well, Justin Carter has always been her kryptonite.

Review:
This was a very sweet story about two people who belonged together.  I read the first book of this series and loved it.  Rachel Harris did an amazing job telling this new chapter of this series.  It was sweet seeing their progression of how they were way back when and how they are now was adorable and addicting.  You can see how much they need each other and it was sweet.  They made each other that much stronger when they were together.

We meet both Peyton and Justin who are both stuck doing a project with one another, one where they have to be a married couple with kids.  This of course comes after years of them not speaking to one another after the breakup from their secret relationship.  It’s difficult for them to say the least but Justin is on a mission.  He knew that Peyton was the one for him but he never thought he deserved her. 

The book went back and forth from the past and the present; it also went from one perspective to the other which I really enjoyed.  I’ve always loved seeing everyone’s point of view of the same situation.  Sometimes one person will feel one way and another will feel the other way, so it’s always good seeing how they really feel.  This book was enjoyable, the characters were great and the writing flowed smoothly throughout the entire book. 

 I think it’s great when books introduce me to new things.  I never heard of Peyton’s disease and definitely went back and did my research on it.  It’s always interesting to learn new things and I think that’s the best thing, learning new things are always a plus.  Regardless this book was overall a good quick read that was interesting and kept me intrigued on what was going to happen with all the characters.   I enjoyed the baseball element as well.  Something about sports always make things more interesting for me, just a plus, maybe it’s the whole sport mentality and the uniforms don’t hurt either.


I think the cover is adorable and I would pick it up and see what it was all about but then again when I see who it’s written by I will still pick it up.  I think Rachel Harris is a great author and writes cute stories that will keep you interested, can’t wait for the next one in this series.  It was also cute seeing characters from the first book.  It’s nice when books are consecutive and you can get a glimpse into all the other characters in the series throughout the entire series.

Excerpt:
“Hold out your hand.” At the expression on his face, I rolled my eyes. “Just do it.” Cautiously, as if I was going to put out a cobra or something, he uncurled his fingers and lifted his palm. I dropped a small silver coin in the center. “For luck.”
Wonder warred with confusion in his gorgeous brown eyes and my heart melted. 
“On this side there’s a horseshoe,” I said, my cheeks warming with a blush. “You know, the universal symbol for luck… and a small reminder of me.”
I bit my lip, hoping he didn’t think that was too corny—or that it revealed too much.
I flipped the coin over, exposing the other side, and my fingers slid across his rough skin. My breath caught. When I lifted my eyes, I found him watching me with so much intensity, so much heat, that an actual shiver rolled through me. Just like in my favorite books.  
Huh. So that was what smoldering looked like. Good to know.
I swallowed hard and noticed him do the same, and nothing could hold back my smile. Justin glanced down and laughed. “Kick some ass!” he read, skimming his fingernail over my initials.
“I figured…” I cleared my throat. “I thought you could hide it in your sock or something,” I said, unable to tell if he liked the gift or not. He just kept staring at it. “If it’s dumb, you don’t have to—”
“No.”
He’d said it so quietly I almost wasn’t sure he’d spoken at all. But then he closed his hand around the coin and raised his head. Time ceased to exist as Justin’s eyes trailed across my face. I held my breath waiting and a sweet smile crossed his face.
“Damn.” He shook his head softly. “You’ve done it now.”
“What?” I asked, hoping whatever it was that it was a good thing. “What did I do?”  
Justin merely shook his head again and smiled. “Wait for me after the game.” Shifting his gaze to the old concession stand, he took a step back and said, “Over there, okay?”
When I nodded, excitement lodging in my throat, making it impossible to speak, he winked and then took off to join his teammates. As I watched his cute butt in those uniform pants run across the field, a giddy grin found my lips.
