Mackenzie Blanchard’s life wasn’t easy; never had been, never would be. She thought things were looking up when she started yet another new school her senior year. She made friends and was enjoying life the best she could.
One friendship turned into something more, and just when she felt safe, things were ripped apart.
Hayes Morgan had never cared about anyone but himself. He was living the life he wanted, just having fun. He never dreamed that he would fall for the new girl in school.
What started out as a sweet friendship turned into something he never thought possible, until she vanished…
Their paths collide a year after they last saw each other, but they are both harboring secrets. Will they be able to trust and love each other again or will the secrets rip them apart forever?
I was given an ARC of this book by the author. This is the second book I’ve read by this author.
Mackenzie has had a horrible childhood. She has gone through things that no one should have to deal with. Mackenzie’s upbringing has given her very low self esteem. She does not feel worthy of love or affection. This is her senior year and she is just trying to survive it so she can get away from her parents.
Hayes is a stereotypical player. He doesn’t really care about the feelings of the girls he hooks up with. That is until he meets Mackenzie. He vows to change his player ways and settle down with just one girl. Can he do it?
This book was amazing. I read it in a matter of days. I loved reading about the transformations of Mackenzie and Hayes. Not only individually but as a couple. Relationships are hard no matter what, harboring secrets make it even harder.
I highly suggest this book.
