Halston has had it rough - drug dealer parents, foster homes and now she lives with her aunt, uncle, and cousin she is just trying to survive so she can leave. At 19 she doesn't have to stay with them but her uncle is holding college over her head so she just needs to survive the year. Ford is in his late 20's and has just landed the job of a lifetime - principle at the local upper crust high school in the area. Halston and Ford meet on a dating app brought together by their mutual love of books (their app names says it all really) but Ford has sworn off women and is not looking for anything more than conversation and whatever else may come just nothing face to face. Of course the more time they spend together talking first in text, then email and then eventually phone calls their feelings for each other start to grow, but when Ford refuses to meet Halston things end. That is until she walks into his office on the first day of school - then everything changes. Now 5 years later they meet again can they forgive each other and get the happiness they deserve.
Ms Renshaw takes her readers on a ride full of pain that is authentic to her two main characters. I appreciate that while there is the taboo subject of student/teacher there is nothing that I found that broke any rules - she walks a very fine line and does so flawlessly. Ford's and Halston relationship is more than physical and that's what makes the story so heartbreaking in so many ways. Told in dual POV's over the span of 6 years we get to see them go through life trying to forget and make the best out of their situations. The ending is well done with a great pay off that I loved. Is the story perfect no - there are few things I wish that there was more especially when it comes to Ford and his history but the core of the story is about Halston and Ford together and that is why I give it the 5-star rating.
All in all a fantastic story about love, books, and survival. A novel that I found I couldn't put down until the very end
It was very interesting reading how Kerouac and Absinthe meet. I was really dying to read what would happen after the revelation and it was good! The whole forbidden romance thing is so hot. Ford's ability to not get involved is very strong. There's this attraction there and they still have conversations but nothing quite happens.
Then, everything goes crazy!
Next thing you know, 5 years has past.
There are a couple of things that don't quite make sense. I don't know why the PI didn't let Halston know about Ford's sister and instead leads her to his ex-stepbrother.
Anyways, the reunion was just as good. Some drama and finally a happy ending!
Such a great read! I couldn't put this down!

I rate this book with a 3.5 stars for the reason that I loved the first half of the book. Our LG (lead girl) is a fighter, surviver not weak or annoying.Read more
