I’m just going to keep this review short and sweet. This is another hit or miss read and for me, sadly, it was not a hit. For me, it was just ok. When I first heard about this book, I was so excited. It sounded really good and I couldn’t wait to dive in. I think it started off really well and I was intrigued by the story. However, things went downhill pretty quickly for me. I had a very hard time connecting with Kelley. I didn’t find him likable at all. I sympathized and understood his situation, but his behavior towards Lenora really put me off. Don’t get me wrong, he did have some moments that I liked, but the majority of the time, I couldn’t stand him, and that sucks because he is a main character. I will say that my opinion of Kelley did improve slightly in the second part of the book. His behavior towards Lenora still put me off, but I will say this, he did show up when it counted. He did redeem himself in my eyes, in the end. So, overall, I thought this book was just ok. Like I said, this is one of those books that you’re either going to love or you’re going to hate. I think this story had a lot of potential and that’s why I’m rounding it up to 3 stars. I do think that it written well and that the plot was intriguing. I liked that this book was sort of YA/NA crossover. This story did have some good moments and did deal with some intense subject matter. I did like Lenora, even though she frustrated me at times. Kelley wasn’t a horrible character, he just left me wanting more……..

I haven’t read much from Ms. Laine but OMG I definitely will be reading more from here! I had so many mixed emotions throughout this book but I couldn’t get enough and was well worth the butterflies I was feeling! My stomach had many crazy parts were I couldn’t help the need to keep reading no matter the sleep I was depriving myself of because I had to finish just one more chapter! Kelley Moore had the life no one wishes for their son, but unfortunately had no choice in the matter. Growing up with in the worst atmosphere and moved from one place to another for fear that people would find out what happened behind closed doors. Kelley uses girls as a way to release his anger in a more reasonable manner and one he usually can keep his emotions away from but can one girl open him up to more. The girl he can’t have could change the way he feels, but one fist changes his entire world. Will he see the girl he can’t have again? Lenora (Lenny/Len) Wells has made sacrifices for her family being with the towns hot shot. She was content being with him because once she got to know the boy; he wasn’t as bad as she thought. Only then she didn’t know of the sexy new kid who would stir butterflies. Out of High School things only got worse with time and time she was afraid would soon run out if she didn’t keep him happy. Lenny and Kelley had such difficult times in their lives that I think made them stronger and without those things I believe they may not have found their true selves. My hope for this story hurt my heart about halfway through and completely shocked me at the same time. I love this story of overcoming your past and proving to yourself you deserve better. I believe this is a story for many to read and re-read! I love the ending how Ms. Laine blew me away and I can’t wait to re-read this story over and over again. 5 stars Ms. Laine for such a heart filled read, Thank you!
