Taryn was from the wrong side of the tracks. She was a thief. A foster child who got adopted at 17. She left behind her only “family” Jace and Brian. Jace, her “brother” and Brian, her love. How can she survive without her family?
Leaving everything she knows and loves behind to go and start over isn’t something that a 17 year old wants. But she does it because she wants better, she needs better, she deserves better. What she didn’t think would happened is that she would find new family; she would gain a brother, Austin, whom she would care so much about and a sister who she would die for, Mandy, who was also a popular kid, and because she’s her sister Taryn was considered popular, except she really didn’t fit in. She was her own person. She didn’t care that everyone was going to a party, if she didn't want to go she wasn't going.
She especially didn't think she would find someone to make her whole again, someone who would never ever leave her side through the good or the bad- Tray, the "IT" guy in school. The one everyone wanted to be caught with, the one everyone was hoping to just look their way.
Tray was gorgeous with sandy blond hair. striking hazel eyes and a jaw that girls melted over. While my sister was in the crowd at the top, he was the top.
She tried to fight it, she tried to tell him that she wasn’t the one for him and that she was an “not nice person”
“I’m an ****.’ I said it quietly, but it was the truth. “I’m the one they want to change."
The need for him was growing stronger and stronger. I was starting not to care about staying in my chair. “I won’t change,” I rasped.
“Neither will I.”
We were both**** That had been established.
You never know what road is for you or what path your going on but when you have people walking that path with you, holding your hand you know that no matter what everything is going to be all right..
I wasn't an innocent, but he was making me feel new sensations again. It would be my first time with him. Knowing that I loved him, and he loved me, made everything right. It was perfect.
The book is set around Taryn, a foster kid/ tough girl/thief who has been adopted into a wealthy family. She's uprooted from her tough life and planted into a family and school like the ones she always made fun of (but secretly wanted). In the process though she is taken from her "family"; Brian, her druggie ex and his brother Jace, a drug dealer. Taryn is fierce! Her reactions are a bit over the top at times, but she is badass; not because she's beautiful with a killer body or that she's a top-notch thief or because she doesn't put up with any crap. It's because she loves so fiercely. It's hard to get to her, but once you're in, she won't ever let you go. Tray is her male counterpart although it doesn't appear like it on the outside. He's the top of the social elite in her new high school. He's gorgeous, popular, rich. But inside, he's as damaged as Taryn. The drug world has played as major of a role in his life as they have Taryn's, it's just not as obvious. I wasn't sure about Tray for much of the book. He just wasn't very nice and I wasn't sure that he wouldn't end up hurting Taryn more than anyone else. By the end though, I was a huge Tray fan. It would be interesting to read this book in his POV. The other main character was Jace. Complex, dark, and compelling. He could star in his own book.
The story focuses on Taryn, so it includes her new family, her old family, past and current schoolmates. The book has one central story, but each of these groups bring in side stories, so it's a very multi-layered story overall. It exposes so many types of human weaknesses. Life isn't easy. Drugs and violence cause one type of damage; but living in a world of constant petty backstabbing, lying, and outright betrayal can damage as well. Both worlds create a fantastic setting, shaping the characters in this book forcing their actions. Actions have consequences.Nothing is as it first seems. That is true from beginning to end. People can end up surprising you. This book will as well. Definitely recommend!
