Book Heaus’s Rating: 5 Stars!!!
One of the worst things that can happen to a teenager is to have them move away from all of their friends, to a new place where they know no-one. This happen to Layken shortly after the unexpected death of her father. Her neighbor Will tragically lost both of his parents in an accident and is now raising his younger brother on his own. There is no denying their attraction, and the connection that they share is instantaneous…..Until they realize that they can’t be together,
I felt so bad for these two! Having someone who could make you so happy be unattainable is almost cruel! There were times where Will annoyed me with his mixed signals…. But I understood, he had to put himself first and his brother. This was a tortuously sweet read. I’m hooked on this series, I need to know exactly what happens with them!!! Thank God I can buy Point of Retreat right now and start reading!
Here’s my favorite line:
“I used to love the ocean, everything about her. All the beautiful? It’s not real, it’s fake…. So you keep your Ocean, I’ll take the Lake”
Please read this book!!
