I have loved Channing Monroe all my life.
In first grade, he asked for my Trapper Keeper.
I hit him in the head with it.
Third grade, we were best friends. We kissed in seventh grade.
Eighth grade, he turned into a bad boy and the rest was a tumultuous storm.
Growing up, the problem was never love for us.
Bad times. Good times. There were times when I felt our love in every inch of my body, vibrating, making me feel like it could bring me back to life.
The problem was us.
The problem is that we're living in two different worlds now.
Fallen Crest and its millionaires for me. Roussou and their criminals for him. I was thriving in mine and he was running his.
But there were nights I felt we couldn't be further apart than we were, and there were nights I felt we shared the same heartbeat.
When was it time?
When was it time to either sacrifice, make a change, or walk away from the boy I grew up with?

The Boy I Grew Up With
This book was beautifully written with very charismatic characters. Heather and Channing meet in first grade and their relationship continues to grow into a wickedly sexy co existence that neither time nor circumstance can circumvent. The story of their undying love does seem somewhat predictable and at time it’s losses its freshness because of its predictably. Despite its predictable outcomes I did enjoy the book and would recommend.
This book kept going on and on.
Not in a good way.
I struggled to finish this, but I’m no quitter.
Does it end?
I’m the type of person if I start a good book I can never put it down. I’ll finish it in one day. This book took me 3 days to not even get half way, I gave up. It was confusing
