The story first starts in 2010 and then jumps to 2013, where we see so many conflicting emotions between the friends - regret, guilt, pain, love, and there are some delicate subjects dealt with such as drugs and alcohol, cheating and more, and it shows how the friends are dealing with their feelings three years down the line.
I didn’t feel as connected to this story as I would have liked, it was an emotional book but the connected towards the characters just didn’t seem to gel with me, especially Landon. Landon was a difficult character to read and frustrating as hell, Macy needed a medal to put up with all he dealt her and at times I thought she was an absolute angel, if not a pushover, but she turned out to be one strong lady. Loved Cash's character too and I would have liked to of seen more input from all these secondary characters in the book, which would have added greatly to the story.
This is a good story and if I had felt more connection between the characters in places, it would have been really good.

A group of high school friends lives change that night. Landon Hayes was an all-star wide receiver and Macy Thomas was his girlfriend But everything changes that night. Landon has to live with his regret. Fast forward 3 years and they are all going to the same college but Landon is spiraling out of control because he can't see to survive his regret and move from it. He has Macy his one shining star left but he knows he feels like he doesn't deserve her. Poor Macy is just watching everything unravel for Landon, he is throwing his life away and she stands by because she hopes for the boy who stole her heart to return. Landon guilt is pulling him into a black cloud that could take everything he has away from him.
Can Macy be what Landon needs to find the light or is it too late for them to find their way back ?
This story centers around Landon and Macy with dual POVs and is a standalone. Landon can't deal with his guilt for his part in that night and he copes by doing things he shouldn't and Macy keeps forgiving him because she herself wants that boy she fell in love with back and so she forgives him. Its a horrible cycle these two are in for the past few years after that night. It hard for me to like Landon for what he does and Macy for forgiving again and again. I want to scream at her to move on and let Landon self-distruct because Landon is right, she deserves better.
This is a sad book that I was so frustrated with because I didn't like Landon and the way he treated Macy. But she let him treat her way and that frustrated me too. I understood that he felt she was too good and he didn't deserve her so his coping hurt her because he couldn't have anything good due to his feelings of regret and she was his good. Macy being a true loyal girlfriend stood by him in thick and thin and forgave him when he didn't deserve it.
Its a story, not of fairytales but of real life tragedy and how to survive it even when you feel regret. Its a great read and I love Megan Smith's books. I've read a number of them. She's a author to check out. She writes great stories! Check this one out to see if they get their HEA.
This book is not your typical romance. It is a very realistic story about never giving up on those you love. It is based upon two people, but entwines six friends as they grow up. These six friends were on top of their world, until one tragic even ripped it apart. The regret they have from this event nearly ends them all, but like the title, somehow they find a way to survive.
