The List

Ashley Barrett moves to California to stay with her cousins for the summer, she's working on her list of 25 things she wants to do before she gets married. Her mother and both of her sisters were married really young and Ashley didn't think that would work for her, so when one of her sisters made a joke about her getting married right away on her eighteenth birthday she sat down and made a list. Theres a bunch of crazy things on her list, things like going skydiving, spending time touring Europe, going to school abroad and getting her master's degree. She's in California working on her goal of learning how to surf board. She meets Matt at the singles ward and figures that she can also get her goal of having a summer romance out of the way at the same time. Matt is an awesome surfer and even gives lessons. She gets her cousin, Dave, to kind of trick Matt into giving her lessons. Meanwhile, all the girls in the singles ward are after Matt. Who wouldn't be, he's cute, super nice and available! But will Ashley be able to follow her own rules and have her heart stay free from being entangled with Matt, or will she fall hard for him, just like a surf wipeout?! This was a really cute romance. I enjoyed reading it, in fact I had a hard time putting it down. I kind of knew how it was going to end up, but I was really excited to see how it got to that point. This was a super clean, fun, happy romance!
