When an opportunity presents itself and their lives could be changed forever, sacrifices will have to be made in order for their fantasy to become reality.
I realized while pulling my notes together for this review that I in fact had hardly highlighted anything, which is so unlike me. I was so completely engrossed in falling in love with this story that I rarely stopped long enough to highlight or make notes. It's just that good!
Aly is without a doubt one of my top favorite authors. She has the ability to draw you in with her interesting storylines. She will send you on a roller coaster, and just when you think you are at the peak of figuring it all out, bam, a switchback. There is something unique about her writing style that keeps me coming back for more.
The character development in this book was perfect. I loved everything about every single character right down to sassy foul mouthed Q. Till Page is so easy to fall in love with. His love for those close to him and the lengths he is willing to go to do right by them made me swoon. Eliza is a strong willed, wise beyond her years sassy pants, who works hard, and loves harder.
I adored the connection that Till and Eliza formed at such early ages, and enjoyed how their relationship evolved throughout the years. I could feel the love between these two from the start, their friendship was something that every teenager should get to experience.
"There is nothing in this world that was ever more mine than you."
Overall, another amazing book that you need to get now, and if you haven't already read the Wrecked and Ruined Series then grab those as well. You will be sucked in from the prologue and have a hard time putting this down until the very last page.
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).
