Trip the Runner – Andrew Rolston

description

★★★★

He won it twelve years ago. Track. He could still remember that glorious week…

Trip Harrington was a hometown hero – winning Gold in the Olympics roughly a decade ago.

And since then…he actually didn’t do that much. But he didn’t need to.

Everyone loved him and were beyond overjoyed to have him in their lives.

The thought of Trip Harrington, local town hero and all-around hunk walking around their small town…

But then one day, he insults the wrong person and his carefully constructed worldview comes crashing down.

But that person who ruined it?

There’s just something about her.

Something that causes Trip to look outside of himself for the first time in a very long time.

…Rose knew a pending disaster when she saw it.

Overall, I quite liked this book!

I didn’t really know much going into it but from the moment I began the audiobook, I was absolutely riveted.

I adored the setting of this book – Rose with her goats, the farming backdrop and the hustle-and-bustle of small town life.

I was fully immersed into this world and wanted to move into their town immediately.

Trip was a truly stuck-up and awful main character…and it was so incredibly satisfying every time he was taken down a peg.

I did enjoy how he did a 180 turnaround in relatively little page-space and it felt…mostly realistic. But he was so extreme before that the transition into a (somewhat) normal person felt like it was stretching a bit.

Rose was absolutely lovely love interest – she felt so down-to-earth and realistic.

By the end of the book, I was devastated she wasn’t real because I so wanted to become best friends with her.

All in all, this was a fabulous book to spend an evening with and the audiobook just elevated it to that top-notch quality.

With thanks to the author for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review
