I received a digital ARC from the publisher through for an honest, unbiased review. My opinion is my own. Wow. This book completely surprised me! When I started reading it, I was a bit weary of the fact that it was about kids in high school. I had thought that it was a college story, based on it being "New Adult". But Hadley and Caynan both intrigued me enough within the first few pages that I had no choice but to keep going. (And rest assured, this is definitely New Adult and not YA.) I really enjoyed their banter and the bit of mystery that enshrouds Caynan is the perfect amount. Hadley was a nice character, but I honestly really thought Caynan was the one that shined throughout. He was the wounded puppy that you just wanted to cuddle and protect, while also being strong and assertive that you wanted him to cuddle and protect you sometimes too. As the big wrench approached, I actually cringed, hoping that what I'm sure was going to happen didn't happen - not because it was executed badly, but because I didn't want things to be screwed up for Caynan! :) I was also surprised to see where the story goes after about 60%, since I just hadn't expected there to be a jump in time. Without giving anything away, this book is deeper than you might think, with some great twists and turns, and is just a wonderful love story between two young adults coming of age. It's written in a very natural and colloquial tone that I very much enjoyed and I look forward to reading J. Nathan's other work!

I found J. Nathan last year when I read Since Drew. Which was amazing, by the way and you need to read it or you'll be cursed with reading bad books for a decade. This is a real thing. Believe me. Before I gush over this book and the author for a few paragraphs, let's have a moment of silence for this cover. For the love of everything holy, please let every single book from J. Nathan have a cover as amazing as this one. Amen. I'm starting to see a trend with J. Nathan's books and it's not just the sexy beast on the cover. The characters are amazing and they are ones that will stick with you well into the next book that you're reading. I just loved Hadley from the very first moment I met her. She's so in control and wary of everything around her and when Caynan walks into the picture, she sure as hell wants to make sure he's not the one to shatter that control. I really enjoyed watching their relationship do nothing. Is that a strange thing to say? I think it was just the pursuit that was entertaining to witness. Hadley puts up a fight and it just makes for an interesting back and forth between her and the tenacious Caynan. There was quite a bit of intrigue that I hadn't expected. And the turmoil that surrounded every page in this book was gripping. I had no idea what was going to happen next. Hell, I think that was one of the biggest pluses in this book. You never were truly sure what (or whom) was going to strike next. And that was just for part one!! You get to part two and all bets are off. I got to part two and it was time for me to play Bad Mom. Bad Mom doesn't strike often but when she does, the kids get ice cream for dinner and Netflix gets turned on so that I can read (mostly) uninterrupted. I'm afraid that I've given too much away already but I have so much more to say. Here's the deal ... if you enjoy an amazingly addictive romance novel, J. Nathan is for you. This book is for you. You need to read it. You'll thank me later. So stop reading this and go get it. Pronto. * I received this novel in exchange for an honest review *
