From #1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a steamy romance that follows Kennedy as she falls for Noah . . . even though she shouldn't.
When I first met him I resisted.
Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass.
That was a lie. It never faded.
And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard.
There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all, the decade that separated us.
Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword.
Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love -- the big, intense, never-been-like-this-before
love -- landed me in therapy.
Now I'm heading to college, and it's time to give love a clean slate again. But, can I really start over when he's still in my life?
Because the one man I've always wanted, and also the only guy I absolutely can't have…
And he wants me just as fiercely.
Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?

For Kennedy and Noah
The author fought to tell the story and in my case I say: Good for you! I love it and it will stay with me for ever. You never forget your first love. When you are young you are bound to make mistakes and always wonder what if. This one is and they live HEA.
I hit the 84th page and I knew I made a mistake in buying the book... it was just missing something .. usually this writer snatches my attention in the first few lines and it didn't happen here... I flipped to the end of the story and it was just as dull as the beginning... wish I could get my money back .... I mean 500 pages of boring just bums me out ....

What do you consider taboo? What is age? Does love truly conquer all?
Kennedy is fighting against the guilt she feels over her parents divorce and her role in it.
Noah is fighting against his feeling for his dear friend's daughter.
Kennedy and Noah can't fight their feelings for each other. They tried.
How do you fight against your heart? Can two people make it together in a world where all the cards are stacked against them?
This is truly one of the sweetest stories I have read in a long time. I now am saving Found Hearts everywhere I find them. A simple picture of a heart in unexpected places can change how you view love and life. Sometimes the greatest lovestoriesare in unexpected places.
