WHAT I THOUGHT
I love how raw and honest these stories are.
West is so wide open and reckless and has a temper to match. He feels responsible for the accident that put his sister in the hospital and is having trouble dealing wight the guilt of that and some other family issues. Hayley has some guilt of her own, and she has decided not to fight due to something that happened in the past. Both of them together are perfect together, but it seems to take them a little while to figure that out.
Awww man, another winner by Katie McGarry. I just love her writing style, and I love the research and time that she puts into each of her books! The story was just so amazing and the characters so real and so fun. During parts of the book, I fell like I could feel the emotion from the characters.
