4.5 Stars (Re-Read 6/20/17)
Overall Opinion: This was still a great read. I will keep it on my favorites shelf, even though I am dropping the rating from 5 stars to 4.5 stars. The ending was too rushed for me to justify giving it 5 stars again. While I still teared up and got emotional at times, I don't think I was moved as much by the story as I was when I first read it. That's not the book's fault though! I think it's just that I knew what to expect this time 'round. I am confident in that it still earned the 4.5 stars, and for my grumpy self that says a lot 😜
**See Goodreads.com/NMmomof4 for my full review with spoilers**
Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Eliza and Till's story. They meet when they are young teens in an abandoned apartment trying to hide from their real worlds. They form an instant and strong friendship that eventually turns into more. After crossing the line in their friendship and facing the big changes in their lives, they are separated. When reunited, Till needs Eliza more than ever in helping him deal with his new reality. There are some sexy times, some heartbreaking events, and some laugh-out-loud sweet moments...and they get a HEA ending.
POV: This alternated between Eliza and Till's POV (with a few small sections with other's POV).
Overall Pace of Story: Good, but the ending felt rushed. I never skimmed, and I thought it flowed well otherwise.
Instalove: No, they take their time in developing stronger feelings.
H rating: 4 stars. Till. I liked him. Yes, he acted like an idiot and pushed the h away at times, but I still liked him!
h rating: 4 stars. Eliza. I liked her. She was feisty and loyal, and she knew her limits with the H and I really appreciated when she demanded more of him.
Sadness level: Low/moderate this time round, but I do remember crying more the first time I read it.
Heat level: Good. They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story.
Descriptive sex: Yes
OW/OM drama: Yes
Sex scene with OW or OM: No
Closure: This had decent closure with what I would call a HEA. I did feel like the ending was rushed, and we could've gotten more closure. Because I have read the other books in the series, I know that we get some of that closure in those books.
How I got it: I paid the $3.99 on Amazon for it (I originally got it through my scribed subscription, but it's no longer available).
Eliza and Till meet when Till literally falls through a window when they are only 13 years old. Both coming from less than stellar home lives, they find solace in each other. They find solace within the four walls of the condemned apartment that feels more like home than where either child lives.
For years, Till and Eliza keep this apartment life separate from their real lives. This secret life is where they can be themselves and they can be everything to each other.
So much happens, this is a beautiful story that shows what can happen as two kids grow up and learn to love--something they don't have at home.
I loved this book. I can't wait to move on and read about the other Page brothers. If they are anything like Till, they will be amazing.
Till & Elizas' story starts from their childhood. Both escaping from their home life, one night Till comes thru an abandoned apartment window that Eliza had already claimed. Little did he know that it would change his life forever. Night after night they sneak into the window building a friendship, a family, their own home away from home, but nothing more. Both are working & trying to make it thru high school, nothing comes easy for these two. To help Till cope he takes up boxing at a local gym earning his keep & respect of the owner. When Eliza graduates & is moving away from the apartment, she decides to take things into her own hands. She's ready to become more. But Till...let's just say he's confused as to what more is. Can fantasy become reality?
Several months later, when trouble comes knocking, Till turns to the only person who has been there for him. Eliza. She's is hurt & it's her turn to be confused. But she would never turn Till away. Till opens up to Eliza & tells her his deepest secret, which only strengthens their bond. And when Till becomes parent to his brothers, Eliza jumps right in. They still struggle between Eliza working, going to college & Till working, training his brothers, & his own boxing career going.There are SO many ups & downs for these two. Are they friends? Are they more? Good thing they figure it out.
Together they build a family of the Page brothers. Till's secret will eventually come to light effecting all of them. I'm astonished how they come together. It was challenging & beautiful. The Page boys' love for Eliza is never ending & will ultimately be put to the test. There is so much more to this story. I don't want to give too much away, but wow! What a way to end their story. Till & Eliza rocked my world. This is the first book in this series, I can't wait for Flint.

Everyone needs a big brother like Till. One that's willing to fight to give you everything they never had.
This was truly an amazing story. This wasn't one of those "romance" "everyone ends up happy stories"...Read more
