About the Author
Raine Thomas is the award-winning author of bestselling Young Adult and New Adult fiction. Known for character-driven stories that inspire the imagination, Raine recently signed with multiple award-winning producer Chase Chenowith of Back Fence Productions to bring her popular Daughters of Saraqael trilogy to the big screen. She's a proud indie author who is living the dream.
Raine is a hopeless romantic with a background in the fields of mental health and wedding planning...two areas that intersect far more than one would think. Her years working with children and young adults with emotional and behavioral challenges inspired her to create protagonists who overcome their own conflicts. When she isn't writing or glued to e-mail or social networking sites, Raine can usually be found vacationing with her husband and daughter on one of Florida's beautiful beaches or crossing the border to visit with her Canadian friends and relatives.

The love scenes also seened cut and dry. She didn't need to go into detail but something was missing. Those are the only two things that bothered me. I enjoyed reading the whole book, really. It was fun and easy to read.
Complications abound, and most are based on real or perceived mental health issues. There's no shame, and Ms. Thomas has provided a nicely crafted vehicle for bringing these kinds of issues forward. It's a bit like Finding you in the Dark, which I loved, with less angst.
Although not a big part of this story, I liked that Cole's brother is in a stable, loving, gay relationship. I hope this doesn't dissuade people from buying this book. I wish more authors would include healthy gay characters.
Great story. Great writing. Thoroughly enjoyed.
This book totally fits that requirement.
This is a great book that I enjoyed mostly because of the main character, Everly and the supporting host of people in the book (her Doc friend, his partner, even the characters that are dead were endearing). The main male character, Cole irked me a few times. yes, he is YOUNG YOUNG YOUNG, but if he TRULY respected and cared for Everly, he wouldn't have made such horrific assumptions about her and had the juvenile outbursts that he had (hence the 1/2 star less than 5).
Everly, on the other hand, is a true hero. Had a very difficult childhood, worked hard to keep her life together and still maintained her sense of humor. How awesome is that?
I love how the author has a pretty decent supporting cast. Take the heaviness off the main characters.
I really liked this book. Yes- it was light and very predictable (I think some of the drama in the book seemed a bit contrived, but that was okay by me!), but worth reading.
A great summer read.

Although this book was a little slow at times, I really enjoyed the story. Everly was an interesting heroine - she's smart and strong. I also really liked Cole.Read more
