Our faces were so close at this point that our noses slightly brushing against one another when either of us moved. Matthew slowly raised his hand and brushed the back of it across my cheek as we stared into each other’s eyes. Closing my eyes I let out a long, slow sigh. This was my Matthew…the loving boy I used to know. If only time could be rewound and things could take place differently. I was lost in thought when I felt Matthew’s damp lips press against mine. Shock raced through my mind as I let out a gasp. My eyes flew open in response as I found myself slightly pushing back from him. Then I watched Matthew shut down. Hurt followed by anger flashed across his face faster than I could count to three. He was back on his feet shaking his head violently back and forth.
“No…No … NO!!!! I KNEW IT!!!” he yelled louder and louder.
“Matthew, wait…” I reached for him as I tried to stand but the coldness in his eyes froze me where I sat.
A story of two young people, living with a friendship between them, when both of their hearts want more. Fear of losing what they know and have, keep them from being honest to each other. Once the secret was out, life threw them a curve ball that will force them to decide of love was worth the fight.
While the cover made the book appear darker than what I found, I did enjoy the twists and turns in the story. I would have preferred a darker story and I could see where things could have been taken farther, but over all it was a good read. Once you get to the end of the book you might find yourself confused by the feelings you will have towards the bad guy.
I felt like we got more about the secondary characters than the first. We knew more about her friends relationships than we knew about Hannah and Jason’s relationship or past relationships or how they’d come to be such good friends. I say that but this could have been a development due to the story plot. As we know there are some authors we just can’t predict the chosen path they decide to take us on.
All in all, I feel the writing style was good. I really would like to have seen more development into the characters and their story. Although this wasn’t a sexy read, the story itself is well worth the read.
