Tired of living in his brother’s shadow, Brody Galven wants the folks of Meeteetse to realize he’s no longer a bad boy screwup. He also wants his childhood best friend, Olivia Langston. While staying out of trouble proves impossible, admitting he loves her is out of the question…even when she’s about to walk out of his life forever.

Longing for Langston is a beautiful, sweet, charming novella. This novella charmed the hell out of me! It is everything I could have wished for and more. I very rarely read novella’s, but when I do I have high hopes, that is why I am so pleased how exceptional the excellent author, Renee Vincent is! Not once did I get bored reading her engaging story and for that, I am in awe of her. This is the perfect prequel to a series I am excited to get started reading!

Longing for Langston follows the two novellas protagonists; Brody Galven and Olivia Langston. Brody is your typical bad boy, well, former bad boy! He used to be a ‘player’ but now he is trying to reform these preconceptions of him, and he is making great strides to do so. Olivia is a beautiful, aspiring singer-songwriter and has known Brody since they were children. Their relationship has always only ever been that of friendship, but of late they have noticed feelings.. stronger feelings for each other which neither one of them can deny, and this is the premise of this beautiful short story!

I am madly in love with this book, and it is only a short prequel! This alone has to confirm the amount of talent Renee Vincent professes. Her words are charming as well as compelling, and they flow so beautifully throughout the book. Novellas are tricky to write, you have to grasp and hold the reader’s attention from the first page, but of course, this is more difficult than if you were writing a regular full-length book. This is because novellas have to be short, quick and enjoyable. You do not have much time to include significant amounts of detail, so it is hard to grasp the attention straight away of most readers; this is what I have found anyway. However! Vincent is a literary talent; she managed to not only grasp my attention but hold it until the very end. I am genuinely impressed with this beautiful little book of hers; I would recommend it to all of you because it is such a sweet, concise, enjoyable quick read which is going to set the series up perfectly!

To conclude my thoughts on Longing for Langston, I would say if you are looking for an enjoyable, quick, lovely read that will make you fall in love with romance all over again then this charming novella is for you! This incredible book gets Five Stars from me!
