A Lush Reunion by Selena Laurence is an example of how first person present should work. Normally I am not a fan of first person, and hate first person present, but I enjoyed this book. I was able to predict this story line pretty easily, however it was still a good book. Colin and Marsha had a complicated past and with Colin's fame, it comes out in their tiny Texas town. They have a lot of hurt to work through, but they do eventually get their HEA. I am curious about the rest of Colin's band members, so I may have to look into Selena Laurence's other books. I give this book 4 stars and will probably read it again.
Ten years ago Lush

heart. Now, in a small Texas town, in the midst of the breakup of his
band, Colin has found Marsha, and he has no idea what to do with her.
O’Neill hasn’t had it easy. Since losing Colin nothing's gone right for
this east Texas waitress—except for Sean, her six-year-old son. She’s
worked hard to give Sean what he needs—the best of her. Then a hot bass
player walks into her bar and she knows the world isn’t done screwing
with her yet.
