West Ashby seems to have it all—looks, a football future, and any girl he wants. No one, not even his closest friend Brady, knows that his dad—West’s biggest fan—is dying of cancer. Two years ago, Maggie Carleton saw her father murder her mother, and once she told police what happened, she refused to speak another word. Now Maggie lives with her cousin Brady’s family, and when she meets West, she sees the pain in his eyes that no one else recognizes. The bond between West and Maggie grows, and eventually
Maggie rediscovers her voice to walk West through his father’s final days. Aided by chapters that alternate between West’s and Maggie’s perspectives, what could be a typical romance—both are drop-dead gorgeous and could have anyone they want—is raised to a new level by Maggie’s self-imposed silence and the grief they are both experiencing. Glines’ novel will be welcomed by fans of Lurlene McDaniel who want something with more depth. (Booklist Online, on UNTIL FRIDAY NIGHT August 31, 2015)

Willa was sent to live with her Nonna, the only one who ever really cared about her, after being thrown out of her parents house. As the story progresses we learn why, and it's tragic and breaks your heart. Willa has a lot of healing to do in this story, and with the help of one of these boys she is finally able to forgive herself and start to learn to accept what happened in her past, but it's a long road.
Watching Willa struggle with her feelings both past and present with Brady and Gunner is frustrating at times. Brady and Gunner both want Willa but don't know how to deal with it. They both have a bond with her, and that bond didn't change even with all the years they spent apart. They were inseparable growing up now that they are all together again, things get complicated. You will root for one of these guys to win Willa over more so than the other, just because they fit more so than the other does. That boy also has his own story to tell, and it's just as messed up as Willa's.
This was an angsty and dramatic story that had me hooked till the end, but it ended quite abruptly for my liking and left me with quite a few questions. The epilogue was also in the past instead of the future which is usually ok, but since there was so many unanswered questions I wasn't feeling how this book ended. I did enjoy Willa's story, and also seeing characters from the previous book as well. I'm hoping in the next book some questions will be answered as I have become attached to these characters and need to know what happened!
Overall this was a good read, but there was too many things that were left open ended for me. Willa's story was sad, yet beautiful and full of laughs, tears, and forgiveness. If you're looking for a Young Adult/New Adult book that isn't full of craziness and backstabbing, I do suggest adding this one to your TBR list today.
