When I first met him I resisted.
Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass.
That was a lie. It never faded.

And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard.

There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all, the decade that separated us.
Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword.
Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love -- the big, intense, never-been-like-this-before love -- landed me in therapy.
Now I'm heading to college, and it's time to give love a clean slate again. But, can I really start over when he's still in my life?
Because the one man I've always wanted, is also the only guy I absolutely can't have…
And he wants me just as fiercely.

Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?

Such a sweet lovely story this was. Kennedy and Noah took my breath away, especially Noah and the way he was trying to do the right thing and still keep his feelings under control and hold his love for Kennedy alive.

Kennedy is a teenager who is trying to find her place after her parent’s divorce and struggling with the quilt and blaming herself for having a part in it. But in all that chaos she finds someone who makes her forget all the bad in her life and all she can see is…Him. Noah is returning her feelings and would want nothing more than to spend all his time with her and only her. But there are some issues with their relationship. He is her mother’s agent and he is older. They can never be together. All odds are against them.

Listening to this book I could barely tell that is was written by Lauren because all the previous work I have read from her is nothing like this. Completely different writing style from what I am used to. But it only showed me how talented Lauren is and how she can shift her writing like a chameleon. The only thing I missed here was when the secret has finally revealed it wasn’t as dramatic like I was expecting and hoping for. Something really big that would justify them being apart.

Marisa Vitali narrated this book perfectly. It felt like I was inside this amazing romantic poetic love story. Her soft voice was suiting for Kennedy’s young soul and the way she portrayed Noah was beautiful.
