The series that readers are calling, "touching, funny, sweet and gut-wrenching all mixed together." By USA Today Bestselling Author, Elena Aitken!
She can’t get over the past. He's falling for a lie. Is their love strong enough to survive the truth?
With a hot new look, and an even hotter new social media career, Gwen is barely recognizable from the overweight, awkward girl she’d been the last time she spent a summer in the resort town of Cedar Springs. And that’s exactly what she’s counting on. Gwen knew there was a chance she’d run into the boy who broke her heart all those years ago, but she wasn’t prepared for the man he’d become—or the fact that he doesn’t remember her at all.
It’s been ten years since Ian McCormick has been back in town and he’s more than ready to put his family drama behind him, start a new business and maybe even have a little fun. And what better way to enjoy summer at the lake than with the gorgeous brunette he can’t stop thinking about?
It was just supposed to be a fun little experiment for her followers. A test to see if looks really do matter. Would Ian be interested the new and improved version of her after all these years?
It was perfect.
At least until all the feelings she thought were long dead, come rushing back. And once the plan is in motion, she can’t back out. With their hearts on the line, can Gwen continue to play a game that could devastate them both and destroy the only real chance at love she’s ever had?
Wonderful beginning to a new series
Elena has done it again, she has managed to write another story that has left me emotionally drained (I cried) and uplifted. This love story between Ian and Gwen starts out with Gwen's deception. Ian doesn't recognize her from ten years before. Gwen uses her perceived rejection by Ian to exact revenge now. The backstory of how Gwen changed herself physically was well developed unfortunately Gwen did not heal emotionally. She allowed her teenage grudge to dictate her relationship with Ian. Ok, I have to stop or I will give everything away. I really enjoyed this story and going back to Cedar Springs just made it better. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
This book is sooooo bad
And there isn’t a thing I can say good about it. Gwen has some totally screwed up problems. She’s immature to start off, shes so full of herself, it makes her look fat. She’s still obsessed with a guy from high school that just wasn’t into her and lo and behold, doesn’t even recognize her. Thank goodness this was a freebie!
Don't waste your time
This book is really stupid on so many levels. First the main character supposedly lost 75 to 100 pounds yet her body is described as perfect which is not reality. Anyone after that weight loss has tons of extra skin. Second, the little sister who is 22! Acts like she is 12 not 22. So many things are so stupid and so far-fetched it's not an enjoyable story
