Class of '95
by Laurie Oknowsky Genre: Contemporary Romance
What would you do if you got a second chance at true love? When Eunice Rysner meets the sexy Jake Castellano, she already knows he’s going to be trouble. Though she tries to push him away to spare them both a lot of heartache, Jake is persistent. But his vindictive girlfriend and Eu’s nemesis since eighth grade, Geri Thompson, is determined to keep him all to herself-by whatever means necessary.
Even twenty years later, when the three meet up again in Long Island at their high school reunion, Eunice-now a successful novelist-can’t deny the feelings she still has for Jake. As she reacquaints herself with the now-divorced love of her life, she can’t help but wonder if this is finally the time to stand up for herself and give in to true love. But if she does, Geri may just steal everything she’s ever wanted from her yet again.
I chuckled then sobered as a thought occurred to me. “You know, it has almost been twenty-five years since we were the Class of ’95.”
“What are you saying? Do you want another reunion?” His adorable brow furrowed as he leaned around me to catch my gaze.
“Nah.” I smirked at him. “I think we relived enough of our youth, don’t you? Our story found its happy ending.”
He smiled back, and his smile once again sent butterflies swarming through me. I’d never get tired of that feeling. “You’re right, sweet cheeks. It’s time the next couple of misfits find theirs.”
Chapter 60 – Finale, Class of ‘95
Laurie Oknowsky had her start as a community author on Wattpad and Inkitt. As her success morphed into something worth trending about, she made the leap into the world of traditional publishing. Class of 95’ is her debut book being published with Ukiyoto Publishing House. Not only is this a work of fiction, it is also a very personal account of a time of awkward adolescence into the hopeful aspirations of a chaste adult.
