Kendra and Courtney share a friendship that most would envy; playful and charismatic. They are constantly telling it like it is, and picking up the pieces the other lets fall. Their friendship plays a key role in how Courtney deals with everything happening around her.
But nothing, I repeat nothing, compare to the strange triangle that exists between Courtney, Jaxon, and Phillip. Its full of big personalities, and comes to big climaxes. Phillip the manipulative jacka** who you hate even more after his true self is shown; Jaxon is a man that anyone would want by their side. He is strong, brave, and darkly conflicted. There is something so enduring about him as he struggles to show the side of him that has remained so hidden for so long. He is raw, and enticing. He is paired perfectly with Courtney. She is a strong 17 year old, but can't always seem to find her voice and project how she feels. The way her mother raised her, she has persevered through a series of faulty relationships; from her father to her ex-boyfriend Phillip. She becomes a better version of herself once she really connects with Jaxon. Its so full of real life issues, that pull at your heart.
All-in-all, it is a great read and I cant wait to dive into the second one.
**my only possible issue was in the beginning I felt like the backstories of each character was taking too long to build, but once I got farther in, I realized that was necessary. I wouldn't have been so intrigued by each characters actions if I didn't know as much as I did about their past experiences.
The attraction between Courtney and Jaxon is instant, hot and will drive you mad! Here are 2 people who need to be together but both keep beating around the attraction they feel towards each other. Jaxon b/c he's afraid of his past coming back to bite him and Court b/c she keeps letting her 1st boyfriend toy w/her emotions. The last few chapters.......well I'm afraid to say too much b/c I don't want to give the story away before others get the chance to read this great book! This is a must read
I'll start with this book was 3.5 stars for me. It was a good book, but had some flaws that made it hard for me to really enjoy it.
The biggest thing I didn't understand was why the F this kid stayed with Phillip or went back to him, despite other events that pulled them together. She seemed so intelligent except for every second she interacted with that douchbag. He was obviously bipolar, but she seemed confused by it, at times. He would be loving to her one second and then full on verbally abuse her, sometimes physically abuse her the next. I know she had been with him a long time, but what the f? He was a cheater, an abuser and an overall prick. Every second she was away from him, she was a very like able character. Every second she was with him, I wanted to roll my eyes on an endless loop. I get being with someone you shouldnt, but once Jaxson entered her life, that should have made her realize Phillip was a psycho piece of crap.
I love Jaxon. He's obviously been through a lot, but he's clearly a different person, until little Courtney pushes him back to the dark side. I can't wait to read the second book to see where this all goes. I don't get what Jaxson's connection is with making Courtney his new Heather, but I'm sure we'll find out. What's a little frustrating though is that her being so similar to Heather is what draws him in, but what else? Other than that, what else is this 17-year-old girl offering this significantly older man? I hope more than it seems, otherwise being attracted to her because of a deceased girl from his past is a tad sick.
I also want to be honest and say that this book felt a little long to me. It's not like I like short books, trust me, I appreciate details and great plots filled with twists and turns. It didn't feel that way here, it felt a little drawn out.
That said, I will definitely be reading the second book to see where it goes.
