Two stories so deeply intertwined, you’ll think you know how they intersect…but you’ll be wrong….
The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My destiny. My fate. I wasn’t wrong…I just didn’t know how twisted fate could be.
After the death of my mother, moving from my dark and dreary trailer park to sunny California, I was focused on one thing – finding a sister I’d only just learned existed. Falling in love with him wasn’t part of the plan. But he filled a void I never knew was possible to fill. He had to be my fate. My destiny. Until the day I finally found out who my sister was…and how twisted fate could be.
He looks up and I watch his eyes take me in. Slowly. They rake over me, dropping from my eyes to my glossed lips down to my exposed shoulders. Taking his time, he follows the neckline of my simple, yet body contouring sundress, lingering when he reaches my full breasts. I’m sufficiently covered, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t aware that the dress showed off my assets well. Tight around my chest, gathering snuggly at the waist, with a scant amount of cleavage. Just enough coverage to still leave something for him to imagine. And I watch his face change as his imagination takes off running.
His eyes drift down my legs, tanned now from the eternal California sun. Momentarily he’s lost in what he sees and doesn’t even notice I’m watching him leer. Totally worth the extra effort getting ready tonight, I couldn’t be happier at the reaction I get. Eventually, his eyes make their way back up to mine and I arch one eyebrow, letting him know he’s been caught. A normal reaction might be to look embarrassed or perhaps even flustered a little. But not Zack. Instead, he flashes me a wicked grin. “You look incredible.” He’s the one doing the leering, yet I’m the one who ends up blushing.

I loved this book. This was such an emotional read for me. Vi and Dylan just pulled the feels right out of me on this one. You can't help but feel for both of our characters; Nikki with losing her mom, Zack with losing his best friend. As this story unfolds, your heart breaks for both of them, for their loss. You can't help it. And just when I thought things were looking up for these two, Vi and Dylan go and break me in two. I'm pretty sure my heart is laying somewhere on the floor.
The way this book flowed, and how it was written was spectacular. Vi and Dylan did a great job of writing two high school characters, that even as an adult, you can relate to. You get sucked into this devastating story of heartbreak and loss, only to have sunshine brought back to these two people. Two people who's lives are intertwined and they don't even know it. But when they find out, they are broken again. Truths aren't what you expect. There are ulterior motives that make you want to smack people around. Theo only thing I can say I wish we would have had more of, is the way Emily's mom was put in her place. I felt like Nikki needed that. She needed to be involved. She needed that vindication or retribution in a way.
All in all I thought this was a great book. I give this 4.5 hearts

About the Authors:
Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn't change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work. She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!
Dylan Scott is a New York trial attorney, wife and mother of four. She believes her job as a trial attorney is a subcategory to the field of entertainment more than law. With a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature she believed teaching English was a destined career choice until she realized her life long talent of "argument" could actually be her job. A recent, fairly boring, midlife crisis resulted in a brief stint as a middle school English teacher which confirmed that she wasn't ready to give up the law. Dylan has also taught legal courses at the college level and worked with at-risk inner city youth in the roles of mentor and coach. She is co-author Vi Keeland's biggest fan.
