Five years. That’s how long I’ve been gone. Since I left my best friend—the girl I loved—behind.
Five seconds. That’s how long it takes to realize I am completely, utterly, screwed. Because now that I’m back, my childhood crush has turned into so much more.
Rylee has changed. We both have. And now I’m drawn to her in a completely different way. To her smile. Her touch. To reliving old memories and making new ones. To the happiness she’s always given me that I haven’t felt since I left.
But her friends are hell-bent on keeping us apart. My dad is one drink away from destroying both of our lives, and maybe I am, too. It’s only a matter of time before I have to leave again, and there’s nothing I can do to stop it. I never get a choice.
The one choice I can make? Stay away from Rylee. Because if I don’t, I’ll break her heart—and mine—all over again.

Rylee and Chase had been best friends, years ago, before Chase left. Now, he is back and trying his best to stay away from her. He does not want his bitter life to run over into hers. He wants better for her.
Chase has been all over, being moved around by divorced parents. Back in the town with the girl he loves, he is trying to keep his cool until the next shoe drops. Rylee makes him feel different. Better. She is all the sunshine he will ever need.
A very sweet love story that tugs at the heartstrings. I enjoyed this book. I laughed, cried, and wished some people would shut the heck up!

This was a sweet, cute read.
Rylee and Chase were best friends until he disappeared five years ago. Now it's senior year and he's back in town. In those five years, Rylee and Chase have changed a lot. Rylee is on her way to be valedictorian and has a group of good friends. Chase is barely passing and drinks too much. Rylee tries to reconnect with Chase but he's distant and tries to keep her at arm's length.
I loved the characters in this book. Rylee and Chase were great together. Rylee's friends were a little overprotective but it seemed to come from a good place. There were some funny parts, angst, and love. Chase's father is in recovery and this book did a fantastic job of showing how hard that is for the individual and their family members. This book was so well-written and I finished it in a day.
