R E V I E W ➠ Our Dust Has A Pulse by Malynda Schlegel
He is going back home. She is trying to find a home.
Katherine Colby has spent her short eighteen years as a reserved, passive player in her own life. Getting her first boyfriend and moving in with him right out of high school was the first time she really thought for herself. Little did she know, she was heading into a year-long relationship that would turn sour, leaving them broken, and her with a new determination to find a life of her own outside of Delaware.
Decker Jeffreys knows a thing or two about broken relationships. He knows some are worth fixing, like the family he abandoned in search of his own fresh start when he ended up in Katherine’s home state, and some are beyond repair, like the girlfriend he’s given this past year of his life to. The official end of his own relationship is the push he needs to go back to Colorado, to the place and the people who mattered first in the hope that he can fix his mistakes.
Decker and Katherine have spent a year fighting their mutual attraction, sticking to casual conversations, but now, their pasts have pushed them together on a road trip across the country … with nobody between them.
But the past can also work against you.
Sometimes, the past can keep you from having a future.
And sometimes, the thing you’re fighting against is the thing you should be fighting for.

WE’RE DIFFERENT, BUT WE’RE THE SAME WHERE IT MATTERS.-Decker
New to me author and books! I was happy to receive this ARC because the Blurb alone is what got me!
This is a VERY SLOW BURN! As much as I love them you pair very angsty and I was pulling my hair out hehe in a good way that is. I don’t mind them at all but this was the QUEEN of it all! Beautiful small-town friends-to-lovers romance that will have you swooning and sighing a lot! It did start off a little slow for me but not too far in, once it picked up I was very invested in it. I read this in a one sitting and for my first book from the author I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. Little different writing style then I am used t, but in a good way as always!
Katherine and Decker are so very different and yet so very same. They entered each other’s lives and stayed as friends. A very slow burn of friends, fighting attraction and the sizzling chemistry they seem to have. When one phone call puts them in a close proximity for quiet some time, things change. They were originally brought together because of Katherine’s sister and the brother-in-law. So when they are send off on a road trip, well you know what they say when you cram a couple in a car and let them drive out. THINGS HAPPEN! I don’t want to say too much to ruin anything but it was pretty impressive and the story line different. All in all I enjoyed it, just a really sweet story!
