Hope didn’t have the best role model when it came to relationships. She’s content with her current no-strings-attached extracurricular activity with the lead singer of her band. She’s never believed in love and commitment.
Mason starts his eighth school in five years anticipating nothing more than the usual—boring classes, fighting more than making friends, and girls happily willing to succumb to his easy smile. He’s never put much stock into love at first sight—until he sees her.
Regardless of their painful pasts, Hope and Mason discover that sometimes never can become forever.
This is a mature young adult romance. Recommended for 17+ due to sensitive subject material, harsh language, and sexual situations.
Wow, I just finished this book and the novella. It really pulled me in and made me feel like I was a part of Hope and Mason’s life. They are in high school when they meet. Both have not had the greatest life. Hope’s was downright horrible. But they are able to still live and see some good in life.
I really liked all of the characters, especially Guy-Hope’s foster brother. He was like the best person ever! The character development was excellent for all characters-even the secondary. The situations the characters are put in are believable.
As you get to know the characters, you understand why they are the way they are. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it! You are pulling for Hope and Mason throughout. You want a happy ending for them so badly, but it may not be in the cards for them.
I give this 5 out of 5!
