Moving, passionate, and unforgettable, this novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover follows two young adults from completely different backgrounds embarking on a tentative romance, unaware of what the future holds.
After a childhood filled with poverty and neglect, Beyah Grim finally has her hard-earned ticket out of Kentucky with a full ride to Penn State. But two months before she’s finally free to change her life for the better, an unexpected death leaves her homeless and forced to spend the remainder of her summer in Texas with a father she barely knows.
Devastated and anxious for the summer to go by quickly, Beyah has no time or patience for Samson, the wealthy, brooding guy next door. Yet, the connection between them is too intense to ignore. But with their upcoming futures sending them to opposite ends of the country, the two decide to maintain only a casual summer fling. Too bad neither has any idea that a rip current is about to drag both their hearts out to sea.
Bestseller Hoover (It Starts with Us) delivers an angsty and somewhat overwrought new adult romance. After recent high school graduate Beyah Grim's neglectful mother dies of a drug overdose in their Kentucky trailer park, Beyah, in need of a place to stay for the summer before she heads off to Penn State on a volleyball scholarship, reaches out to her estranged father, Brian, but she's unprepared for her father's swanky new life in the Houston suburbs. After a hungry childhood spent fending for herself for basic necessities, Beyah doesn't want any messy emotional ties, but she soon forms a tight bond with her new stepsister, Sara, and falls for the wealthy but haunted next-door neighbor, Shawn Samson. Samson is not what he seems, however, and when the police come calling, secrets come out all around—most notably about Samson's and Beyah's tragic pasts. Hoover goes thick on the pathos, and tenderhearted readers will ache for both protagonists. Sexy, brooding Samson, especially, is just the kind of hero Hoover readers thirst for. This is sure to scratch an itch for fans of dark, soapy romance.

Absolutely loved this book. So heartbreaking and so uplifting all in one little book.
I’m new to the author Colleen Hoover, but she is quickly becoming one of my favourites.
Finished in one day
Really enjoyed the book. Must admit not as long or thrilling as so,e of her other books but I really enjoyed it, so much that I barely put it down. Would strongly recommend reading it.
