Summary: Rob had it all – friends, a near-guaranteed lacrosse scholarship to college and an amazing family – but all that changed when his dad was caught embezzling funds from half the town. Now he’s a social pariah.

Maegan always does the right thing. But when her sister comes home from college pregnant, she’s caught between telling their parents the truth about the father and keeping her sister’s trust.

When Rob and Maegan are paired together for a project, they form an unexpectedly deep connection. But Rob’s plan to fix his father’s damage could ruin more than their new friendship.


My Thoughts

If you’re not an avid follower of my blog than you may not know this but I am a very big fan of Brigid Kemmerer. I have yet to read a book by her that I haven’t instantly fallen in love with. She has a knack for writing characters that steal your soul and just this amazing way of writing her characters that has you feeling for them on a very deep emotional level. It is the kind of writing that truly pulls you into a book and leaves you breathless when you finish. I apologise that this feels like a bit of a gush but I cannot help it. I just simply love every single book that Brigid Kemmerer writes and every single character she writes about. She brings them to life in such a unique and amazing way. Add to that compelling, addictive, heart-wrenching and intense stories and you might just see why I absolutely love all of her books.

So it should come to no surprise for you to find out that I absolutely loved this book. I devoured it. I was in the midst of a reading slump but this book kept calling to me and once I started, I struggled to stop. I simply had to continue reading. I was hooked on the story and I needed to know how Megan and Rob’s lives were going to pan out. Both of them had so much to deal with in the course of the book and I just loved how it all came together, how they helped and hindered each other. Once again, Brigid Kemmerer has created a book with such amazing chemistry between the characters. Characters that you find yourself instantly rooting for and crying for. This story is complex, moving and intense and I simply raced my way through it, my heart hammering in my chest.

In case it still isn’t clear – I highly recommend this book. (And all of her other books too!) It is one that will make you feel deeply. It is dark and full of depth but it is also light and full of love. And somehow Brigid Kemmerer pulls that off perfectly. I honestly cannot speak more highly of her as an author or of this book.

So if you’re still reading this, stop. Go and pick up this book!
