Sydney West’s new relationship might have survived Malibu, but her transformation from party girl to girlfriend isn’t complete…
Sydney is back in Arizona, and with the fall semester at her doorstep, doubts about her so-called summer love start to plague her. A good girl can only stay good for so long. Jason King changed her and made her wonder if love was real. But now, far from his charm, and with the party scene on campus in full swing, the magic is fading…
Jason isn’t willing to let distance drive a wedge between them…
A surprise reunion and a romantic cabin getaway is enough to reignite their summertime spark, but Sydney isn’t convinced this whole monogamous, meeting-your-parents thing Jason wants is possible. No boy has ever met her mother. Then, when a sudden family tragedy strikes, it sends her spiraling into her old habits of booze and boys.
Sydney can only hide from her past for so long…
In the fog of drowning her sorrows, Sydney realizes her former party lifestyle won’t make her happy. Her one-night stands ended with Jason. As much as she wants to believe in that far-fetched fairytale ending, she’s afraid if Jason finds out about all her summer boys, he will abandon her just like her father did.
Jason refuses to settle for the superficial shell Sydney keeps between them, though, and is determined to…
Break Down Sydney once and for all.
Sydney is back in Arizona with her friend Amelia and she is in love but hardly dares to admit it to herself, because long distance relationships don’t work right? Jason has other ideas and doesn’t want to let Sydney slip through his fingers but then something from Sydney’s past returns and the aftermath makes a return of the old Sydney inevitable, or does it.
This is an emotional story, told from a first person point of view. Sydney’s new relationship makes her question her former ‘love them and leave them’ lifestyle. Jason is a complex character but his love for Sydney is self evident and he gives her the strength she needs, to ride their emotional roller-coaster.
An unexpected plot twist makes you wonder if fate will rob Sydney of her happiness and sets the scene nicely for the third book in the series.
Aimed at lovers of young adult and college romance this story provides, angst, realistic life situations and lots of hot loving. It’s well written and definitely worth reading.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
Jason set a warm cup of coffee in front of me. I blinked a few times before cradling the cup against my chest. I sipped it, letting the hot liquid scorch my throat.
“Don’t drink it too fast. You’ll burn off all your taste buds,” Jason warned.
With the cup back on the table, I glared at him. What does he see in me? Why would anyone want to help someone like me? I’m no good, just need to be thrown away.
“Why are you here?” I asked more to myself than to Jason.
“Excuse me?” He raised an eyebrow.
“Why are you so nice to me all the time? I don’t deserve it. I—” Tears fell down my cheeks. Would I never stop crying after all this?
I am broken.
Jason cupped my chin with his hand, forcing me to look at him. “I love you, Sydney. I love the good in you. I love your flaws. I love every piece of you. The sooner you realize what love means the sooner you can stop feeling broken.”
How does he know I feel broken?
