After one bad experience, Iowa high school senior, triathlete, and fangirl Lucia “Luc” Guzman swore off relationships. Well, that was until Connor Kohlton and his southern accent moved to town. With the help of her childhood best friend, Jax Weber, she discovers her “college only” dating rule may be causing her to miss out on a great guy. Luc's parents have always taught her and her sister to put safety first and she applies that rule in all areas of her life; her training, her work, and her heart. However, she must throw caution to the wind when she decides she can’t fight her feelings anymore… But what will it cost her? When things start to fall apart, it’s hard to tell who’s to blame, because everyone is putting their Best Foot Forward

This is the first book I've read by Jolene Buchheit and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The Best Foot Forward is a modern young adult romance, with some drama and mystery to keep you gripped.
Lucia aka Luc is a quiet, book geek. She doesn't care what other people think of her. She also takes things in her stride.
Conner, the hot cowboy. Who takes a liking to Lucia but he's scared to get close her. The only downside to Connor, I felt like there was so much more of him we didn't get to see.
Great writing, good characters and a good plot!
