Book Overview

Willa can’t erase the bad decisions of her past that led her down the path she’s on now. But she can fight for forgiveness from her family. And she can protect herself by refusing to let anyone else get close to her.

High school quarterback and town golden boy Brady used to be the best of friends with Willa—she even had a crush on him when they were kids. But that’s all changed now: her life choices have made her a different person from the girl he used to know.

Gunner used to be friends with Willa and Brady, too. He too is larger than life and a high school football star—not to mention that his family basically owns the town of Lawton. He loves his life, and doesn’t care about anyone except himself. But Willa is the exception—and he understands the girl she’s become in a way no one else can.

As secrets come to light and hearts are broken, these former childhood friends must face the truth about growing up and falling in love…even if it means losing each other forever.

My Review

I could not believe I actually went against my instincts this time. I have only read a handful of love triangles in my life because I did not like that kind of plot in any way, shape or form. But, I do not know what got to me and what is the main reason why I actually wanted to read this book. I've read the first installment just recently and I thought it was borderline okay.

I have no doubt in my mind, when I was just a few chapters in the book, on who would be the hero Willa chooses and I was not let down. Everything about this book was explosive and I think that was the reason why I wanted to read this so bad. As I have said before, I kind of grown out of Abbi's books but with this book I was constantly bombarded by surprises and unexpected revelations. I loved it.

The characters, the love, the history, the family and the attitudes did me in and there is no doubt now that I will be reading the next installment cause I am terribly intrigued.
