Why did I pick this book: I participated in the blog tour hosted by AToMR Tours. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)
Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. It took a little while to really get into it, but something about it kept me reading. By the last half, I was reading every free chance I had until I was finished.
The story starts off with Leigh Ann coming home from college, unsure if she is home for good or just for the summer. The reader is left wondering what happened to her at school because certain thoughts she expresses lead us to believe it was not good. I was kept guessing through most of the book as to what had happened to her. I had a hunch from the beginning, but I did rethink that hunch a few times. Once it came out, I couldn’t even imagine the turmoil she was going through. I can’t believe her parents either. UGH! How could they do that? Why wouldn’t they stand behind their daughter? Unbelievable!
I love Knox. He was a great guy from the very beginning. I had a hard time believing his story because he was such a sweet guy. I was happy to find out the whole story towards the end. He was just what Leigh Ann needed to find her strength and courage and move forward.
The supporting cast was okay. I liked Jenna, she was a true friend. Sophy was a friend but we didn’t get to know her all that much. Perry was a jerk for the most part. He did redeem himself. Penny was the old friend who is still a friend at the end of the book.
All-in-all, a good read. Romantic in parts, unbelievable (not literally!) in parts, interesting. Like I said, a good read.
Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book if you like the New Adult romance genre.
Will I read it again: I will not.
About the book: One night can change everything…
Two years ago, Leigh Anne Davis shocked everyone in tiny Fairhope, Georgia when she broke up with her wealthy boyfriend to attend an Ivy League university a thousand miles away. At school, she finds a happiness and independence she’s never known.
Until one terrifying night takes it all away from her.
With no place else to go, Leigh Anne heads home to reclaim her old life. A life she worked so hard to escape. On the outside, she seems like the same girl everyone has always known. But deep inside, she’s hiding a terrible secret.
That’s when she meets Knox Warner, a troubled newcomer to Fairhope. His eyes have the same haunted look she sees every day in the mirror, and when she’s near him, the rest of the world fades away. But being with Knox would mean disappointing everyone all over again. If she wants to save what’s left of her old life, she has no choice but to say goodbye to him forever.
Only, the trouble with goodbye is that sometimes it’s about courage and sometimes it’s about fear. And sometimes you’re too broken to know the difference until it’s too late.
