Skylar Woods unknowingly drew Wyatt Smith toward her. He wanted…needed to learn everything about her. Though he sensed her beauty was more than just skin deep, Wyatt struggled to understand the sadness she attempted to make with an amazing smile.
When Skylar’s eyes met Wyatt’s for the first time, her breath caught and she couldn’t look away from the new guy standing in the school office smiling at her. The connection only get when Wyatt sat next to her in English class, allowing Skylar to dare to believe he might actually be interested in getting to know her.
For the first time in months, she felt alive.
The moment Wyatt expressed an interest, the notes started again…the ones that reminded her of a past she could never move beyond—the event that changed her life forever and robber her of any change of happiness.
Never believing the rumors being spread around school about Skylar, Wyatt made sure he went out of his way to prove how much he cared about her.
But when the past resurfaces, will Wyatt stand by her side? Or will he turn against her like everyone else?
Skylar has been through a horrible ordeal and as a direct result of that her life changes in a heartbeat. Rumours start to spread and she is thrown into an impossible situation. She is bullied relentlessly based on some rumours that wasn’t even true. I had so much anger for the bullies and it really honestly annoyed me. She has been through this horrible experience and she’s being bullied because of it. I just felt so much emotion bouncing from hating the bullies to being sad for Skylar.
Wyatt comes along and he is one of the sweetest YA characters I have ever come across. He is so smitten with Skylar from the very first moment that he sees her. Her eyes are the drug that he needs to get through the transition to a new school. He knows that there are rumours about Skylar but he doesn’t believe any of them not even for a second.
The timeline then jumps into the college era where we get to see more of Skip (Skylar’s brother) I really hope we do get his story at some point. I think that’d be an interesting book.
I love the way this book played out, it was different and so good at the same time. I felt so much happiness and sadness and I just adore the characters. The ending though, I was screaming at my kindle. I won’t spoil but I neeeeeeeed the next book now please!!
