Beth’s life hasn’t been the same since her sister died. Her parents try to lock her down, believing they can keep her safe by monitoring her every move. When Beth sneaks out to a party one night and meets the new guy in town, Chase, she’s thrilled to make a secret friend. It seems a small thing, just for her.
Only Beth doesn’t know how big her secret really is…
Fresh out of juvie and determined to start his life over, Chase has demons to face and much to atone for, including his part in the night Beth’s sister died. Beth, who has more reason than anyone to despise him, is willing to give him a second chance. A forbidden romance is the last thing either of them planned for senior year, but the more time they spend together, the deeper their feelings get.
Now Beth has a choice to make—follow the rules, or risk tearing everything apart…again.
Another book that I really wanted to love but just couldn’t. It’s a good read but not great and I hate that.
Beth’s sister, Rachel, was in a car accident and passed away. Beth’s parents are smothering. Controlling. She wants to be a normal teenage girl but her parents won’t allow her to do anything.
Chase has a dark past that he wants to keep hidden. That is until he meets Beth. He struggles with doing the right thing and that’s telling her his secret. Something that could ruin her.
Their chemistry was great. I loved that their relationship flowed easily. The characters are well rounded and the overall story was good. It had the potential to be something amazing.
It was slow at parts and confusing at times. I questioned myself about their age group. How far apart in age they were at times. I also found myself putting it down more times than I should. The ending was also rushed.
It’s emotional and touched on things that teenagers could relate to. I just wish it was more.
