1) The insta-love. I'm so sick of authors doing this and not steadily building the relationship
2) Jake's bossy domineering attitude. When done right it works, this was not done right...and worst of all
3) She is a virgin saving herself for her love while he is a manwhore.
I swear to God if I have to read another book where the girl saves herself for her one true love while he is out slutting it up for a few years I WILL DRIVE OFF A CLIFF! How about for once the Heroine is out banging dudes while the Hero is the faithful virgin? Or better yet neither of them sleep around, shocker I know but it's possible. Beautiful story but it was ruined by Leo's manwhoreness. Maybe I'm a little harsh but this is like the 6th book in a row I've read where the girl is the faithful virgin and the guy is a is out just getting with girls left and right and I'm just done. DONE!! I tell you!
Evie is a young woman who lived in foster care in her young life until the age of 18, and while it was a terrible way to grow up, she somehow found the strength to grow up without being bitter and turned into a beautiful woman who always put others first. Now eight years later, she still delivers cookies to the old man who used to live next door to her last foster home and he was always nice to her. Evie is just like that, taking care of the people others have forgotten.
When the book opens Evie is in her early 20's (22) and works two jobs to keep a roof over her head and seems to be happy with what life has given her. However there is one thing missing-the love of her life- Leo- who told her when she turned 18, he would come and get her and they would be together, because they loved each other and she belonged to him! Leo got adopted at 15, and moved to California with his new parents and that is when his hell got worse. He lost touch with Evie, but he never forgot her. They had been friends since Evie was 10 and Leo was 11.
However Evie does not know that and so for eight years she has tried to get on with her life, but subconsciously she is still waiting. When the story starts out Evie has just gotten back from the cemetery as her friend from when she was in foster care, Willow, a sad unhappy girl, overdosed and died. She also knows someone has been following her for a week. When she finally confronts him, and she sees he is really good looking and she feels like she knows him but she doesn't. Then he tells her, "My name is Jake and Leo asked me to come check on you."
Evie is shocked and asks about Leo and Jake tells her he is dead, but nothing else. Her heart breaks to think her beautiful boy is gone. She asks and he tells her Leo died in a car accident the year before, and that they knew each other in school. Jake then tells he that he moved there a couple of months before but he was settling in and now he just wanted to make sure she was okay, like Leo asked. Evie does not know what to think, so when Jake asks her about Leo she just said that Leo was someone who had broken a promise to her, and that is all she says. Jake then introduces himself to her, and she thanks him and goes on her way.
The next day Eie goes outside and Jake is there waiting for her. She lets him know he does not need to worry about her anymore, and Jake tells her he just wants to be friends so she gives him her number.
This starts a whole new chapter in her life, she has never dated anyone and she has never been with a man. She finds herself really liking Jake, but she feels like something is off. However she just starts enjoying Jake so much she puts it to the back of her mind.
Jake on the other hand is keeping a really big secret and is afraid to tell Evie what it is! The closer they get and start getting involved, the more nervous Jake gets.
This book is so good, and you will feel happy, sad, be able to feel the closeness between Jake and Evie, but also other things start happening that forces Jake to tell Evie what is going on and you will have to read and find out what this is. The plot twists and turns until you don't see what is coming.There is a lot of mental and physical angst and there is also the beginnings of trust friendship and love.
Once the secret is out will Evie be able to stay with Jake, or will she have to live alone again? Read on and find out!
I gave this book 5***** poignant stars and hope you will enjoy this book as much as I have
I was very emotional while I read this story, especially when Evie would remember her time in foster care. The unfortunate events that Evie and the other children experienced were heart breaking.
Jake is the handsome stranger that knew Leo and came to check on Evie. He is also the reason I had to constantly reread this book! I didn't trust Jake AT ALL!!!!! And it made me very uneasy. I knew he was a good person, but I couldn't quite put my finger on exactly what I didn't trust about him.... I was convinced he was bad news.
"the boy who makes me want to stay awake because reality is finally better than my dreams."
And then there is Leo, the boy who broke Evie's heart... AND MINE for that matter.
"He made what would have been a place of nightmares into a place to dream."
You know you're reading a damn good book when you feel exactly what the main character feel. I wanted know why Leo disappeared just as badly as Evie did! My heart ached for this girl, I never believed in finding true love as a teenager or a preteen. But I was rooting for Leo and Evie to find their happily ever after as they had planned... And when she said that he never contacted her I was floored.
"the thing about falling in love is that no matter where you are when it happens, you can't help but to color those moments with beauty, even if you're in a location of ugliness."
It may seem like I'm rambling, but this is the best I can do without spoiling anything! I'm sorry!! This book put me through an emotion wringer! I laughed, cried, felt anxious and swooned!
"In the history of the world, nothing has ever been more okay,"
Please pick up this book, you wont regret it! It's a beautiful story! Normally I pick one or two quotes as my favorites... But there were so many beautiful words spoken in this book, Mia should think about becoming a love song writer as well!
"I will prove to you that forever is not just a word, not just a measurement of unending time, but that forever is a place where I will treasure your heart."
Excuse me while I add Leo to my Top 10! And make sure you pick it up!
