The second standalone novel in the YA romantic suspense "Gavert City" series.
SEE ME, Try as they might…
SEE ME NOT, Tessa and Luke can’t escape their pasts.
Six years ago, Tessa Gardner’s sister, Mellie, disappeared. Despite lingering guilt and the never ending desire to find her, seventeen-year-old Tessa works hard to keep it together. Her grades are decent, and thanks to her part-time job, she can help pay her family’s bills. But when her childhood crush, seventeen-year-old Luke Simon, rolls back into her small Texan town, he threatens to topple the delicate balance she created. She’s drawn to him—and the way he makes her smile. He’s the only one who seems to understand her, but he’s got a dark past of his own. Even the fake psychic who swears Mellie is still alive tells Tessa that Luke will cause her pain.
Luke Simon knows a thing or two about guilt. He moved in with his uncle to escape his past, but memories threaten to eat him alive. He does what he can to keep his anger in check—quieting his thoughts by making out with one meaningless girl after the next. Tessa, and her long legs and her hard-earned smiles and her kindness is the only girl who’s ever mattered. She’s the one untainted memory he has from his childhood and he could talk to her for hours. He could do anything with her for hours. But the truth about his past might send her running. Or worse.
While Tessa and Luke try their hardest to live in the present, their pasts lurk in the shadows, more intertwined than they could imagine. And it may be too late to save Tessa's sister—and themselves.

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. This was the second book in this series, and I don't know if it was that I was so excited about the book, but I did not enjoy it as much as I did the first one, now don't get me wrong, it was still good, and I did still enjoy it, but I had loved the first one, Dimi and Erin had captured my heart. I liked Tessa, even from the first book, poor girl had went thru so much, from having a wacked mom, not that she meant to be that way, but the poor lady just couldn't help herself, but she tended to forget that she had a second daughter, and that part broke my heart. Then there was Luke, I understood that he had gone thru a lot, but he just didn't my sympathy, I think Tessa deserved someone better, but I had to remind myself that they were teenagers and not to hold it against him. We got to see Erin and Dimi briefly, very briefly and that part just about killed me, I had wanted just a little more of the, but I get it story is not about them, but it would have been nice, to catch up with them, but I am hopeful that we will get to read more about their relationship when Natalie's book comes out, because I can't wait for that, she deserves it. Anyway, don't wait, catch yourself up, we still get a lot of hours of entertainment.
