Adam Reynolds is an impoverished teen raised by neglectful parents in one of London’s most dangerous boroughs. He turns to his love of music and countless girls to escape his sad reality.
Beautiful and naïve Ellie Palmer comes from a well-off family that suddenly finds themselves living in one of the poorest neighborhoods in London. Alone in a frightening new place, Ellie is afraid to leave the safety of her home, only going out to walk to school and back.
When Adam prevents Ellie from becoming the victim of a horrific sexual assault, they discover something that two teenagers never thought they would find in such a depressing place. Each other.
After tragedy, lies, and distance tear their future away from them; they each wander through life empty and hopeless no matter who or what they use to replace the feelings of loss.
From the crime-ridden streets of London’s East End to the over-the-top display of wealth in L.A. Can two broken souls conquer their demons in order to find true happiness?
This book has been on my TBR list forever and since the second book in the series was recently released I decided that it was high time to read this one to get a better grasp of the series. After finishing “Incite” early morning, not only do I want to read the other three books but I have this strong desire to read Heather Leigh’s “Famous” series as well. This is how strong of impression this story had on me.
What I loved about it was that Adam and Ellie’s love story doesn’t just happen overnight rather it extends over a long period of time. It all begins when Ellie’s parents take a financial hit which leads Ellie transferring to a new school. Almost immediately Ellie catches Adam’s attention. Adam back in high school had this reputation of being a ladies man – never sleeping with a girl more than once but when he meets Ellie he knows that she is one that could make him change his ways, forever.
In those early years, I honestly felt that they wouldn’t be able to handle a serious relationship being that young but as the story continues on they become so deep in each other up to the point where one couldn’t function without the other.This is why their first separation was extremely difficult. I did feel frustrated with Adam during those times with how he went back into his philandering ways but if you think about besides his music this was the way that he could cope with losing the love of his life.
Over the years Adam and Ellie have several accidental yet disastrous confrontations which were certainly disheartening yet no matter where they were in their lives when they were in each others presence you could sense that their feelings never withered. The timing was just always OFF. What was great about it is that after all those challenges they proved that they had a love so strong and so genuine that it could survive anything.
Bottom line is I enjoyed this Adam and Ellie’s love story. I do however have to admit that I did have a difficulty with the way the story moved back and forth between the timelines but after getting used to this way of writing it became less confusing. Otherwise, everything else about it was perfect!
I would definitely recommend this book for those not only looking for a story that compromises of a fantastic second chance romance but also possesses a story of hope, of beating the odds with a “feel good” ending.
