Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacius, but inwardly, she's losing hope.
Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introducction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.
Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interations become impossibly paintful as they struggle find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.
In my opinion, the begining of the story unfolds too quickly because of the simple reason that they have a lot in common; both of them have had the death of a close loved one and the relationship of their younger bothers.
Another thing that I love about this book are the poems, that are not from famous people, they are from the characters, that write poems about their lifes and their feelings.
The main story is about Layken and Will, but there are subplots about other characters with the main characters (especially Layken). But the end is close to fast, but after the story continous with other two books, where the main characters continous beeing Will and Layken.
You will laugh, cry and fall in love with this book.
The other two books are in Amazon or in digital platform.
