Ashley has made some critical judgement errors
as she has determined the motives and trustworthiness of friends. As a result, she and those she cares about are sent on a collision course with serious consequences for her and those around her.
She loves her dad. Since she lost her mom, she desperately craves the hugs and affection of her father, but her step-mother and siblings always seem to be standing in the way.
Collin finds in Ash an understanding and kindred soul. He can't help but remember the shock of Ashley's impulsive kiss years earlier, and wonder, despite the fact that they grew up together, and he was close friends with Ashley's older brother.
Thrown together by life's situations, their mutual understanding turns from gratitude and comfort to affection and more. They lift, encourage one another, work together, make typical relationship mistakes, forgive eachother and themselves, and discover that standing next to eachother is where they really are happiest.
I appreciated that this story has likeable characters who make some pretty big blunders and immature social choices, but they recognize them, face them, seek to change, forgive themselves and others, and press forward.
I shed tears at the tenderness and difficult situation Ashley's family has struggled through while trying to blend two families.
Imperfect peripheral characters and perceptions add a realistic depth to the story. The characters deal with friends and family who have motives of their own. Sometimes they respond unkindly, even cruelly. Sometimes responses are immature. We can learn and recognize poor choices while they are made.
This would be a great discussion book to read with my own teens.
I received a complimentary copy from the author, but the opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
Ashley is a young woman who has a hard time believing in herself, and because of this she makes some bad decisions. She is gullible, because of her need to be accepted and loved. She comes from a home where her mother passed away and now has a step-mother. She feels a little less loved and secure in her family relationship.
Collin was her high school crush. Now, he is her rescuer. I enjoyed reading about them stumbling through roadblocks to realize their feelings for each other.
The bottom line is this is a book with characters who do stupid stuff and then learn to forgive themselves and others. It has religious themes specific to the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is clean with a little kissing.
