When tragedy strikes the Kingsley household, secrets are uncovered. Brooke and Dylan must decide if what they feel for each other is strong enough to conquer their families' dark past.

My Thoughts

This was a wonderful read. I enjoy very much and, well, I still can’t over it

The plot was great, very entertaining. I enjoy very much everything the author present. All the scenes are written with a purpose, we don’t have that situation that, at the end, doesn’t make sense or just doesn’t count into the main plot. Also there’s only one big issues and everything else just goes around that! 

And we have few of everything, romance, little bit of mystery, little bit of humor, and even so a little bit of psych power. We get caught since the beginning of the book. 

The characters were wonderful. I really like them all. Both Broke and Dylan (the leads) aren’t like the usual characters we often read. I like Brooke very much, she is this pampered girl outside but, not even wild like the normal NA book, she just want to be normal, have what others have, love, joy, real friends, live her life doing the things she wants to do and love to do. But she can’t because her parents and her social circle don’t mix with the low people.

Dylan is part of the low people, he’s happy with his life. He never had that wish to go out from his town, he is just a mechanic because that’s the only thing he knows to do and he just fuck with every girl because that the only thing he finds fun. So there’s nothing he wants to change about it. 

When they hang out at his sister’s party, things change between them and the sparks fly. They complement each others. I like how they manage the relationship, and also the fact that, at difference to other book from this genre, they don’t mind others opinion about them and only think about what they want, what they feel. 

I actually like the side of Dylan the most. I just can’t stand the fact that some rich people think that they’re better than other just because they have money. There you got, they are unhappy. Anyway, Danna and Jase were so fun and I like them very much. The romance was so cute and wonderful. I like it very much. I felt so warm about it, make my heart flit with joy everytime they were together! 

Overall, this was a wonderful read. I felt very good at finish it, like everything fit into my life. This book is lovely, enjoyable characters and a cute romance. Anyway guys. I fully recommend this book, because really worth the time, is such a wonderful read!

I give it 5 hearts

About the Author

This may be my least favorite part about writing a book. You guys may be surprised to learn that I am the most boring person you’ll ever meet. The most interesting thing about me is that I write books, most of the time in my pajamas and jacked up on caffeine.
I began writing six years ago for fun and published my first book in 2012. Since then, my hobby has become my job and I love every second of it. I live in Illinois, in the country where I’m surrounded by corn and soybean fields. When I manage to escape my office, I enjoy fishing, spending time with my family and playing Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong. Yes, I’m a huge video game nerd.
