Twelve years on, they have made a good job of pretending, they may have almost forgotten. But when they get in touch via Facebook, it seems that it is all still there.

JustHumanJust Human is a book I let sit in my to-be-read pile for about a good month or so. I kept wanting to read it, and kept having other things crop up and didn’t really have the chance to. So! A Sunday came around that I had free, and let me tell you, I took my Kindle, grabbed my cellphone and went and laid in the hammock. I spent all day in there, with a glass of sweet peach tea and Just Human. That alone may tell you how much I enjoyed this book, but the book itself? Oh my, Heavens. And yes, I mean Kerry Heavens, by that. 😉 She has done it again, or I should say, before in this case, and written a book I am absolutely in love with.

Just Human is about Danny and Liv, these two grew up with each other as best friends from the young age of six, eventually fell in love and then moved apart due to circumstances they couldn’t control. Or so they thought they couldn’t. Each things they love the other more, that they other doesn’t love them enough and so they have to let the past go. They have to move on. So that is what they do, they both try. Twelve years go by and they get in touch via Facebook. It’s like nothing has changed for them, where they thought they were over each other, they are far from it.

The years  and life experiences have changed each of them from the younger versions of themselves, but at core, they are still the same person the other one knew.

Danny is… goodness, he’s a romantic. He left Liv behind, thinking he had to, thinking it was what she wanted. Nothing has ever really worked out for him relationship wise. Sure, he’s had them, but they never seem to stick. Really though, I don’t know what girl would not want this guy? He’s intelligent, handsome, has made something of himself, sweet, caring, thoughtful. Yes, thoughtful sticks out to me a lot. Sure, he’s a guys guy, but you actually see his softer side.

Liv used to be that shy, quiet girl, that wasn’t loud but who literally loves movies and would lose herself in them. She’s changed from that girl though, now she owns her on business, has piercings and tattoos and knows herself. She’s had a lot thrown at her recently, including walking in on her live-in boyfriend with another female… in her bed. So when Danny gets in contact with her, she’s just has her trust shaken. Liv’s never stopped loving Danny, but she’s sure he never loved her as much. He didn’t try to stay, and he didn’t ask her to go with him. So she’s spent a long time trying to move. She too, has had relationships, but for her as well, they never seem to work out, and something is always missing.

Before you know it, and these two are back in each others lives, hoping to make this work out. Neither is sure where this is going to go, so they plan to take it slowly. They take into account the living situations and what it would take to be together again. What they aren’t prepared for, is Danny’s “ex”, and I call her that in loose terms. I have one term for Brooke (the ex) and that is stalkerazzi. Mmm’hmm.

I’m not about to tell you what happens here though, and spoil the story for you. You’ll have to read Just Human and find out. It’s completely worth it! You do actually need to read Still Human, to find out the rest of the story for Danny and Liv, and I’ll be doing that as soon as I’m able. This -is- a bit of a cliff hanger, but thankfully, Still Human is already out! These two characters have hooked me and I’m just hoping for an HEA for them.
