When I first met him I resisted. Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass. That was a lie. It never faded. And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard. There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all, the decade that separated us. Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword. Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love -- the big, intense, never-been-like-this-beforelove -- landed me in therapy. Now I'm heading to college, and it's time to give love a clean slate again. But, can I really start over when he's still in my life? Because the one man I've always wanted, is also the only guy I absolutely can't have… And he wants me just as fiercely. Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?  

He inhales sharply. The look in his eyes says we’re crossing into the danger zone again. It’s the only place I want to be with him. Because when we’re there, nothing between us feels dangerous. Everything feels right.
“I turn eighteen in a few more weeks,” I say, like my birthday is an open invitation for us to slam back into each other.

He nods. “I know.”

A breeze blow by and rustles his hair. A lock falls out of place. Instinct takes over. I raise my hand to reach for his hair.

But he’s faster. He grasps my wrist, and the second he does, the moment expands. It stretches and unfolds into the thing I will replay tonight and tomorrow and the next day. I stare at his hand clasped around my wrist, flashing back to all the times he held my hand, touched my wrist, and ran his fingers along my arm. I shiver as the memories collide, the past slamming into the present.

I look up from our hands to his eyes. Blazing, full of heat. Full of all that restraint from him that I know so well.

3.5 - 4 Stars

I am a huge fan of Lauren Blakely's books, she is on my go to list. She has a way of drawing you to connect with her characters. Full of emotions both negative and positive, Lauren keeps you looking for more.

Kennedy is a teen that has seen too much, been pushed to do too much, fighting with who she really is and where she will go from here. She is smart beyond her years, this evident in her love for Art and Broadway. Some of those smarts are not necessarily the kind of smarts one likes to brag about. As much as love and relationship had been tarnished in her life she is a hopeless romantic. She tries to keep her select friends from her home life to keep them safe. He is there, always there, it is hard not to feel a connection to him.
Noah is thankful for Jewel, as she give him a chance when he was just starting out. He has a strong loyalty to Jewel. Over the years he has had multiple opportunity to spend time with Kennedy, to get to know her. They have more in common than most women he has spent time with over the years. Slowly as much as he tries to deny his feelings, concerned about being appropriate. He is a sweet loving man with nobody to love and somehow this beautiful young girl pulls more and more at his heartstrings.

As we watch Kennedy come to realize that her mom is causing most of her issues around friendships, relationships, the ease of telling lies. Can she find the person she is supposed to be. She needs to do that in order to find the love she deserves.
