Ella used to be a rule-breaker with fiery attitude who wore her heart on her sleeve. But she left everything behind when she went to college and transformed into someone that follows the rules, keeps everything together, and hides all her problems. But now it's summer break and she has nowhere else to go but home.
Ella fears everything she worked so hard to bury might resurface, especially with Micha living right next door. If Micha tries to tempt the old her back, she knows that it will be hard to resist.
Micha is sexy, smart, confident, and can get under Ella’s skin like no one else can. He knows everything about her, including her darkest secrets. And he’s determined to bring his best friend, and the girl he loves back, no matter what it takes.
I was having trouble wondering where to start with this great book. And the I read this and said.. yeah, no better way to describe it!
“Welcome to Star Grove.” I shout over the music. “The Land of the Intense
and Poverty-stricken, where the adolescents roam free without sober
parental supervision and try to start fights wherever they can.”
You’re in for a rush of adrenaline. A little secret that will drive you crazy, wondering what happened that night.
Seriously, I wanted to scream to someone to tell me what happened!
And a LOT of sexual tension
"He knows what I’m about to say—he always does. He is my best friend, my
soul mate. In a perfect world, full of roses and sunshine we’d be together, but
this world is full of broken homes, drunken fathers, and mothers who give up
This book gets you you hooked right from the start. Ella and Micha’s story is THAT interesting. So yeah, go ordering your copy now, and keep reading. it gets better!
I could go on and on about Micha and his super hotness... but lets Ella gives you a little about how he looks.
“Micha has always been stunningly beautiful in a way that
makes artists’ hands ache. He’s dressed in a red plaid shirt, dark jeans, and a
pair of black boots. His lips are full and ornamented with a silver loop and
his dirty blonde hair has a slight wave to it. His skin is like porcelain and
his aqua eyes carry more than I can handle.”
And the best part? He has a lip ring. A. LIP. RING. And tattoos.
Excuse me while I drool.
They both have a complicated past. Their lives are a mess. And without each other, things seem like they settled down a little...
Ella has left her attitude behind. She’s a nice girl now. She has good grades and nice friends.
Micha stop drinking altogether.
But being back in town again, next to each other... all control slips.
Lila... wow, she was a great character. And in a way, is the one that makes you discover all the mysteries. Lila knows good girl Ella, and when they get to Ella’s house, and she’s faced with her past, she’s curious to know what her friend has been hiding all along.
Ethan is another great character. He's Micha's best friend and he's worried about him. He wants the best for his friend and maybe, Ella is not as good for him as everyone else thought.
Micha wants her best friend and the girl he loves back, but Ella fought a lot to make herself a new person, and being back is about to tear everything apart, and maybe this time she won't be able to help herself.
Honestly, I loved this book from page 1. I read in one sitting, hating bathroom and food breaks with passion. Is the kind of book that seems to short and makes you wanna read it all over again. And again.
Both characters have a lot of layers, passion and mystery. I love them.
And this book has everything to keep you going: sweet moments, hot moments, please-make-out-already moments (we love those, really), a few I'm-at-the-edge-of-my-seat ones too.
If you like a complicated love story, a badass girl, a super hot guy, and an awesome plot line, yuou'll love this book.
“When it all comes down to it,
The ending was perfect, but I need more...
it’s just me and her against the world. Always has been.”
I can't wait for the next book in the series!
