Summary from Goodreads:
Missy Shaw thought she had her life planned out perfectly; do well in school, take her basketball team to state, and get a free ride to college. Her life wasn’t perfect, but it was constant. With her best friend Karley at her side, she could handle anything.
After the death of her mother, however, her dad had other plans. Moving Missy from everything she knew in Kansas to the great unknown created a new set of problems. Attending a new school, all she really wanted was to be invisible, but that simple feat proved difficult when she had a run-in with the school’s basketball star, Adam Miller, on her very first day.
Adam is every girl’s dream; charming, sweet, and gorgeous. And for some reason, he’s very interested in Missy. His attentiveness is unnerving as Missy does everything in her power to evade his interest. Living with secrets she’s not willing to share, Missy works to push Adam away in order to keep her family safe. But will keeping secrets really keep her safe?
My Review: This book was AMAZING, like I can’t emphasize this enough. I started this book at 11pm thinking I would read a chapter or two… oh no friends… I. Read. The. Entire. Book. It was that great.
This book is very rough to read, you will find yourself cringing for her, and rooting for every single page. This book was heartfelt, it was emotional. I am normally not that into this type of book, but man I loved every moment of this one. I loved the dynamic between Adam & Missy. I was rooting for them, I want them to succeed. I don’t want to spoil anything but this book did end on a cliffhanger so believe me you will be begging for me… luckily book 2 isn’t out yet, or I would have started that book at 4 am. No I am not lying… I can’t get enough of this amazing book.
I can’t wait for book 2, but this time I will start the book at a respectful hour so I am not up all night.
