Skylar McKenzie is a serious artist with a plan. She'll graduate high school, travel around Europe, then leave her life in Texas and move to New York. She'll also leave her feelings for the boy she's known her whole life, behind and move on. Or so she hopes.

Jackson Cruz is ready for a future as a star quarterback once he graduates high school. It's the path he's been leading for years now. But when his cheerleader girlfriend cheats on him, and a teammate causes a lot of drama, he wonders if this is really the life he's wanted, or if there's something more.

They thought they had it all figured out-their futures. But life doesn't always go as planned. With feelings revealed, their dreams on the line, this is a year for changes, choices, and a love that might or might not overcome all obstacles.

Told in Jackson and Skylar’s POV, this is a story about acceptance, first love, embracing your passions and finding your way, even if it’s not the way you had planned.

In this story we meet Skylar and Jackson. Both have been through a lot of drama in their life. Skylar lost her father just a few years back, and Jackson's mother walked out on him, his brother Jared, and his dad when he was just a young boy. Skylar, Jackson, Jared, and both the families have been friends their whole lives so growing up Skylar and Jackson were inseparable until High School when Jackson started dating another girl who he felt safe with because she couldn't hurt him. "It's easier for me to let myself be with someone when I kn ow it won't really go anywhere. Then I can't get hurt if I don't expect too much." I can totally relate to Jackson. The only problem is that Skylar is in love with Jackson and vice versa. Skylar is the quiet one. She has a couple of close friends but prefers to stay home and paint and read. They really are opposites on the outside but the same inside. "I've always loved Jackson. He was my best friend. We had everying in common. We shared everything. We loved the same things, and what the other didn't like, we compromised." When Jackson finally leaves his current girlfriend and allows himself to be with Skylar I was wondering where the story would go. They did have their fair share of drama of the typical teenager sorts. In general this was a typical YA novel. There was nothing in it to make it stick out from any other and while it wasn't a horrible read, it wasn't that exciting either. Then when we get to the end and I am thinking it will be tied up in a neat little bow for us, she drops a huge whammy and just leaves us hanging. There is obviously going to be another book in the series. For me that was disappointing. I wish she would have shortened some of this story as I felt it dragged in places, and given us one complete novel. I would recommend this for anyone in high school however. I do love YA novels but sometimes I think being an adult reading them makes them fall flat for me as I want something a bit deeper. This was a nice little break from all the NA I have been reading lately however. Reviewed by Mystery for Crystal’s Many Reviewers *Copy provided for honest review*
