The girl with an innocent heart knows all about bad choices, but has yet to make them for herself. Searching for freedom, she finds it in the delinquent down the hall.
The troublemaker with summer-sky blue eyes knows he should stay away, but can’t resist the blissful wonder who makes his house a home.
She’s a hopeless romantic. He’s just hopeless.
She’s his reason, but he might not catch her when she falls.
She loves him. He loves her crazy.
This is what happens when a love made of secrets is kept with rules instead of promises.
I was so excited for the chance to review this book for these ladies and am thrilled to be a part of the blog tour. Both Mary and Sarah bring something beautiful and unique to the table with their writing, and they pulled me in further to this world with each chapter and their wonderful characters.
Bliss and Dusty’s story started out for them as children and I loved how seamlessly these ladies handled that. Everything from the narration to the conversations between the characters felt so accurate to kids that age and I was hooked. We got to watch the two of them grow up throughout the book and see how their different choices would change them.
We also got to see both Bliss and Dusty’s perspectives which I really enjoyed. Questions that couldn’t get from Bliss were answered by Dusty and vice versa. Both perspectives were clear and easy to distinguish between. They offered different tones to the story as well. Giving you the hopeful innocence of Bliss, and the dark hopelessness of Dusty. Both were so well done.
And with the way this first book has ended, I can honestly say that I cannot wait to get my hands on the next one. Mary and Sarah have hooked me and I am ready for the rest… I hope you are too!
