Five Stars all the way
This book is incredible. The story is emotional and incredible in every way. My heart absolutely broke for Averie. As much as you want to shake the hell out of her and tell her to snap out of it. You really feel for her.
Ashton is probably one of my most favorite male characters I have ever read and I have read a lot. High school romances usually don’t really ever rank this high for me but occasionally there is one that is just so much more than a high school romance. As you read this book you forget that Ashton and Averie are teenagers.
As a mom of a teenager who plays sports I’ve been to the meetings every year for sudden cardiac arrest. It’s such a scary thing to think about but it is something that needs to be talked about.
This is a original, realistic, well written book with some incredible characters and I cannot wait to continue this series.
This was such a wonderful surprise as I have never read anything by this author before.
As a little extra tidbit get the audio book: narrated by Brooke Daniels and Jacob Morgan is incredible. The Dual POV, which can be a little confusing at times, was amazing and very well done an only enhanced the story that much more. I mean I love Jacob Morgan and I really never find fault with his performances, but truly this audio book is on another level. It is a must have companion to this book.
I have read this book as an ecopy so when I had the chance to listen to it on audio I was super excited to see how it would be portrayed. I haven’t listened to a ton of audiobooks but I must say I was so impressed by the narrators. The narrators brought the book to life with their amazing voices and even when they portrayed secondary characters. The story follows Ash and Averie as they try to navigate a relationship after tragedy and emotional rollercoasters. Ash is pure perfection because he doesn’t act like a normal high school kid he is very mature for his and he shows Averie that her oath of destruction is only hurting her. Averie has dealt with a lot of tragedy and lies in her life but Ash brings her a peace she craves. Amazing story and can’t wait for more!!!
I had no expectations going into this story and ended up obsessed!
I had no expectations going into this story and ended up obsessed! Averie had it all in her relationship with James, but when tragedy strikes, her whole world is turned upside down. Relocating to another town with her mother, Averie is coping with loss the only way she thinks helps; drinking and smoking, although she eventually realizes that it’s not a healthy way to cope. Recognizing Ashton but not realizing who he is, there is instant attraction on her end, while Ashton has had feelings for her from afar for years. Initially trying to stay away from each other, the pull and chemistry between the two get to be too strong, and in turn they develop a friendship that quickly turns into a relationship. With Ashton keeping a big secret that has similarities to James and it comes out, we wonder if the growth Averie has experienced will be enough to keep them together. This was my first read by Casey and I was honestly blown away by the storyline and the character growth within both Averie and Ashton. I was so happy with the ending and the storyline itself kept me engaged so much I couldn’t even put the book down!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
